on privacy and safety
A custom-made stay with the Travel Designer service
Having made history in Greek hospitality for more than a century, the Poseidonion Grand Hotel opens its doors on Wednesday June 17th of 2020 to welcome guests for yet another unforgettable summer on the Island of Aromas.
With the safety of guests and associates, as well as the local community of Spetses, as the ultimate priority, the hotel is completely in line with these new circumstances, committed to following guidelines issued by governmental and health bodies, and going above and beyond to offer an unforgettable and carefree stay. The island’s proximity to Athens, as well as the safety of traveling here by car via the Port of Kosta and a short water-taxi trip, prove Spetses to be the ideal destination this summer.

From private transport by water taxi from the Port of Kosta as well as in-room services like private dining, spa & wellness treatments and fitness sessions to wine tasting, cooking lessons at the Bostani, the Poseidonion Grand Hotel’s organic farm, experiential seminars, horse riding, cycling, hiking and excursions to the island’s beaches, even trips to nearby destinations by yacht, this summer will be filled with once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Unique gastronomic experiences, curated by Olivier Campanha

With a focus on pure, regional ingredients from the Poseidonion Grand Hotel’s Organic Farm “Bostani”, grown by the island’s local producers and sourced from the wider region of the Argolic coast, and inspired by the roots of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, Olivier Campanha combines local tradition with French techniques to create delicious dishes bursting with flavour. The updated Library Brasserie menu will be dedicated to Greek cuisine with some elements from the wider Mediterranean, whilst at the Bostani, the visitors can enjoy a holistic farm-to-table experience in a verdant environment blooming with the beauty of Spetses.
