Straddling a rocky peninsula overlooking three private bays, complete with sunbeds, boat tours and a top beach club, there’s no questioning the Astir Palace’s five-star Athens hotel credentials, matched by signature Four Seasons service. Swoon between seven fantastic fine dining restaurants and swanky bars here, maybe stopping by the spa for a holistic treatment, medicinal bath or steam grotto, before bathing beside a huge sea view swimming pool, just for starters. There are watersports at the Four Seasons, gardens laced with pine trees to wander through, a mini marina, boat tours and private lunches aboard the hotel’s own yacht, yoga, tennis, a gym, even onsite jogging trails for anyone looking to stay in shape while away.
If you're keen to simply enjoy the best of the Athenian Riviera and fully relax however, where better than in such sumptuous surrounds where even entry-level guestrooms come with a deluxe furnished balcony (a few with instant beach access too), a lounge area, deep soak bath and king bed. Suites and bungalows at the Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel go further still with their private plunge pools and for some, an unforgettable roof garden from which to fully appreciate those picturesque coastal views. The décor is decidedly modern throughout: think white drapes, cushioned daybeds and natural wood tones, all working in harmony with the sandy beaches and peppering of pine trees which surround the hotel.

The seven fine dining restaurants, lounge and terrace bars at the Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel are as irresistibly decadent as you would expect at such a sublime hotel. From the best of the Aegean, fresh seafood and salads in Arion to locally sourced mezze plates to be devoured at the beachfront Taverna Restaurant, perhaps seeing the night out with a cognac in the Cigar Lounge – this is a gastronomic haven, no doubt. You’ll find fusion food, experimental flavours and inspiration taken from Italy to Asia and beyond across a range of seasonally changeable menus, all enjoyed in either a sophisticated restaurant setting or out on the terrace with those sea views for company depending on which daily haunt you choose.
