The DNA: Brown Acropol aims to recreate a very specific vision of Athens: not the classical history for which the city is most famous so much as the high modernism and hedonistic glamour of the swinging Sixties and Seventies. It begins with the building, a mid-century classic by modernist architect Emmanuel Vourekas, and interiors that celebrate the era of the building’s construction.
Offering some of the world's finest Mediterranean dishes from acclaimed founder and chef executive Costas Spiliadis, the hotel brings a symbol of iconic simplicity to life through divine gastronomy. The 43 accommodations range from charming, cosy classic rooms to spacious, luxuriously designed one-bedroom suites with large outdoor sunny terraces and a jacuzzi overlooking Old Parliament Square and Lycabettus Hill.
Gatsby Athens presents a thoroughly homegrown Greek version of the Fitzgerald character’s carefree fantasy life. And though the name is a reference to the optimism of the Jazz Age, and finds its counterpart in some Art Deco echoes in the hotel’s interior design, the Gatsby is a 21st-century adaptation, a 33-room boutique hotel with an unmistakably hedonistic outlook.

The DNA: The iconic Mirabello Beach & Village from 1972 has been reopened after a 60 million euro renovation. New amenities include 55 new private and jetted pools, 10 new outdoor Jacuzzis and three new yoga decks overlooking the bay. The investment also included the complete transformation and extension of the seafront area, now boasting 70 brand new cabanas and a revamped private yacht marina. #iconic #luxury #beach #private pools #spa
Minos Palace is an unapologetically high-end boutique-style resort whose peninsula location gives it sea views in just about every direction. The private-island illusion is only heightened by the fact that it’s an adults-only hotel; even though it’s just a mile outside of the seaside town of Agios Nikolaos, it achieves a laid-back tranquility that’s reminiscent of some much more secluded hotels.
The vibe is rather self-consciously 'laidback boho': there are bean bags scattered on stone jetties along the seafront, sculptures dotted around the property and art work in reception. A long stone paved walkway punctuated by jetties loops along the extensive seafront and gives views over the bay. Walt Disney stayed here in 1963 whilst filming Moonspinners and since then the resort has been a haven for art-loving celebrities who like to remain anonymous.

If it all sounds very Italian, because it is - from 1912 to 1947 the Italians occupied the Greek Dodecanese Islands. Mario Lago, the then governor envisioned the hotel built opened in 1927 in a mix of Byzantine, Arabian, Ottoman and Venetian styles. Ten years later the exterior was simplified in order of a new governor. In 1999 the hotel reopened after being shuttered since the mid 1970s. The hotel features 33 suites and a casino, once run buy the Sanremo Casino.
The ” barefoot luxury” hotel has been designed to resemble a traditional Greek village, with its medley of one- and two-storey villas grouped around gardens and patios and built in the classic cubist style distinctive to the Aegean islands. Interiors are cool and sparsely furnished, with polished, pale grey concrete surfaces offset by warm woods, feature wickerwork and rattan. This design gives each villa the look of an exceptionally stylish Greek fisherman’s hut.
Opened in 2016, Casa Cook Rhodes marked the debut property in the Thomas Cook’s collection of breezy boutique hotels. The tour firm tapped architect Vana Pernari and interior designer Annabell Kutucu of Berlin-based design agency Lambs and Lion to create a series of 90 one- and two-storey pool villas. The spartan architecture is peppered with midcentury touches such as woven straw poufs, rough throws, tasselled hammocks, retro wire chairs and rough cotton.

Aristi's visionary owner, Vasilis Iosifidis, created this slice of considered luxury in the pastoral heartland of Epirus to share with visitors his love of Greece's lesser-explored backbone. Guests can embark on a host of excursions - from photography tours to river trekking or simply enjoy the hotel's pine-clad spa. A flush of modern interiors is tasteful enough not to distract from the epic mountain views.

The DNA: The Domes hotels know that eye-catching contemporary design is a complement to, not a distraction from, the natural splendor of the Greek islands. Domes Corfu looks straight out into the Ionian Sea from a hillside above the idyllic Paralia Glifadas beach, which means it’s got the views covered — many of the suites face the beach from their balconies, and many of the common spaces partake as well.
A departure from the typical Greek white and blue hotel, Leivatho Hotel is set in a contemporary concrete-and-glass building. It offers panoramic views of the Ionian Sea and is a 4-minute walk from Avithos Beach.
Perched on a hill, nestled among ancient olive trees with views of the Ionian Sea, the 93-room Olea All Suite Hotel on the Greek island of Zakynthos merges soothing colors and materials with a property-spanning, 4,000m2 (43,000-square-foot) pool to marry guests to their environment, as well as a more serene state.

This 34-room establishment (member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World) is a stylish blend of old and modern: historic notes from the original 1924 building include high ceilings, original plaster ceiling roses, Art Deco balconies and marble staircases. Warm tones (cherry, gold and chocolate), along with carpets and quality furnishings, keep it cosy, whilst artwork adds a touch of pizzazz, and high ceilings showcase glam light fittings.
The hotel was built in 1972, but has seen multiple rebuilds and renovations since, and it’s good to know that nothing remains from that decade’s personality but the walls and mortar. The style is classic chic that whispers ‘settled wealth’ making liberal use of walnut wood and marble. Particularly striking are the inlaid marble patterns on the floors combining green marble from the island of Tinos, red from the village of Ritsona in Euboea and cream from Dionysos in Attica.
Blue Bottle Boutique Hotel is located in the city centre of Thessaloniki. It offers rooms with a smart TV, Coco-Mat luxury beds and a private bathroom with shower. There is a gift shop at the property and bike hire is also offered.

Set in a mansion from 1850, Eressian is a small boutique hotel and award winning (small) spa on the island of Lesbos. Lesbos, famous for its poets and possibly most for Sappho, who was born here in the village of Eressos, tucked away in the rugged southwestern corner of Greece’s third largest island. Unlike the more southern Aegean islands, the style here is more classical and colourful than the minimalist blue and white ethos of the Cyclades.
Designed by Athens-based design firm, Block722, the 128-room adults-only retreat is shaped like a Grecian village with down-to-earth design inspired by the traditional Greek houses, or Kamares, found in Samian villages. With a nod to these charming towns, the hotel's numerous swimming pools are centred as the beating hearts of each small 'neighborhood' within the grounds, and a 'plateia' - the village's main square where people meet and mingle - can be observed in the lobby and reception area.

Opened: March 2023. Housed in a former sanatorium is MANNA in Arcadia, Greece, set to open in March 2023. The team at K-Studio is overseeing the renovation and design, with the aim of creating a 32-room hotel that celebrates serenity, purity, pleasure, and craftsmanship. A specific focus will be placed on wellbeing and nature, providing guests with a direct connection to the surrounding mountainous region of the Peloponnese.
A leading light among Greece’s historic hotels, this centuries-old mansion pampers the visitor with an outstanding spa and offers superb views over “Greece’s Gibraltar”, the majestic rock of Monemvasia in south-eastern Peloponnese. The hotel is a destination in itself whose past necessitates a small indoors museum.

Influenced by the French Riviera’s most luxurious hotels, the Poseidonion resembles the early 20th-century Carlton in Cannes and the Negresco in Nice. It was completed in 1914 by the wealthy Anargyros shipping family, and built to be the centre of society life catapulting Spetses into a top destination for the Athenian bourgeoisie. Today, the hotel has the same defining luxuries of the past, with its period furniture, marble staircase, original English tiles and stately wood flooring.
