POSEIDONION GRAND HOTEL SPETSES ISLAND, GREECE



The intricately refurbished Poseidonion Grand Hotel brings the French Riviera's style and architecture to the Greek islands. Its stately façade overlooks the Argolic Gulf on Spetses, an island known for a lush pine-clad landscape that inspired Greece?s grand naval and shipping beginnings.
LocationWith its classic architecture, centrally positioned on the island?s main Dapia Port, the Poseidonion is a structure to admire when approaching by boat. It towers an expansive sea-bordering square where a proud statue of Laskarina Bouboulina, the early 19th-century Greek independence heroine and Spetsiot, stands. Very few cars are allowed on the island, so scooters, 4x4s, bicycles and walking are the best ways to get around. The hotel is less than a mile from the old harbour and 250 yards from the Bouboulina Museum and the Hatzigianni Mexi Spetses Museum. The closest beaches are minutes away too. Style & Character
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. The addition of modern amenities wholly respect the original architectural plan.
