You’ll be out of breath on your Greece holiday, not only because of exhaustion from exploring the country, but also because of the breathtaking beauty of the place – from ancient ruins such as the Acropolis, to exceptional beaches of the Greek islands. Don’t drool yet, though; wait till you see the best Greece hotels on this list.
Stay at King George Palace in Athens for some pampering fit for a god. Hailed as one of the 100 Top European Hotels in the Condé Nast Traveler 2007 Reader’s Choice Awards, this hotel offers top-of-the line facilities, such as soundproof rooms with adjustable lighting and climate control, marble bathrooms with bath tubs, as well as Wi-Fi Internet access. The Palace Spa offers a fusion of ancient and modern treatments, plus a Jacuzzi, pool, and even a beauty salon to cap off your relaxing day. Conference rooms, which are equipped with audio-visual facilities, as well as high-speed Internet, are available; and the Tudor Hall Restaurant offers an appetizing menu, matched with stunning views of Athens and the Acropolis.
If you ever get tired of staying at this fabulous hotel (which is very unlikely), you can go out and do business or splurge on a shopping spree, since the hotel is just a stone’s throw away from the bustling streets of downtown Athens.
For a hotel that’s just a few steps away from the beach, try Elounda Bay Palace in Crete, which offers rooms with either a sea view, mountain view, or garden view. Make the most of the outstanding leisure facilities, such as an indoor heated fresh water swimming pool for adults and kids, a supervised animation program for children, a water sports centre (where you can scuba dive, sail, water ski, or windsurf), a shopping arcade, and gardens with walking paths.
