Family-friendly seaside Athenian resort with an Olympic-sized pool, tennis court and spa
Located on the scenic Vari-Voula-Vouliagmeni peninsula (sometimes dubbed the Athenian Riviera), the 162-room Westin Athens Astir Palace Beach Resort makes the most of its enviable location, with sea views from every room and a sun-soaked Olympic-sized pool. Parents and children can divide and conquer, with diversions for the little ones in the form of a kids’ club hosting games and arts and crafts sessions, and adult pastimes such as tennis or chilled cocktails by the pool. The hotel complex, which also encompasses the upscale Arion, A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, has a splurge-worthy seaside spa, as well as five restaurant and bars serving classic Greek and Mediterranean gastronomic delights.
In the Area
While motoring into Athens to admire the iconic sites of antiquity might be an essential on the bucket list, you might just prefer to stick to roads less traveled, like the Poseidonos coastal road that takes you past some stunning beaches and the picture-perfect town of Glyfada. Mind you, Poseidonos is a major thoroughfare beloved of street racers, so don’t expect utter tranquility – for that you should head to Cape Sounion and the ancient Temple of Poseidon on the tip of the Attica Peninsula. (Look for Lord Byron’s carved signature at the base.) The cliff is said to be where Aegeus leapt to his death, in the process lending his name to the Aegean Sea. Raise a toast to sunset and the gods at the chic lounge bar at Cape Sounio hotel.
