Athenian Riviera Resolutions: Hit 2024 Travel Goals at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens

January 22, 2024,
Athens, Greece

With travel firmly back on everyone’s agendas for 2024, Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens offers four inspirational approaches for new year wanderlust resolutions worth keeping.

Located just 30 minutes from the Greek capital’s historic centre – the heart of “great ideas” since time immemorial – the storied Athenian Riviera sanctuary is a 30-hectare (75-acre) haven with oceans of bay-view alternatives for all occasions and persuasions: memory-making magic with friends; learning opportunities buoyed by awe-inspiring Aegean vistas; a healthy retreat inspired by time-honoured Mediterranean traditions; or a personal pampering investment where the only item on the agenda is self-care.

Make Time for Friends and Family

Shared memories create the foundations of meaningful relationships. Follow the ancient pilgrims’ steps to the Temple of Poseidon. Board a luxury yacht from the Hotel’s dock to tour the Saronic Gulf islands. Embark on olive oil tastings and wine museum tours. Challenge each another with on-site tennis, basketball and football—or simply bask in one of the three on-site bays sheltered by towering pines.

Dreaming of easy breezy multigenerational or friendship group stays? Spacious suites made for sharing include the Sea-view Bungalow Suite with Pool and the Arion Royal Suite with its own garden and private sea-view pool. For maximum benefits from  January 11, 2024 to March 31, 2025, receive a complimentary fourth night for every three nights booked, along with daily breakfast as part of the Stay Longer – Fourth Night Free offer.

Learn a New Skill in 2024

Science shows that learning a new skill promotes “neuroplasticity” - the brain's ability to develop new neural pathways, which in turn improves cognitive functions and protects against ageing. A luxurious “classroom”’ of blue-hued, green-fringed natural beauty, Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens inspires with pottery classes, Greek cooking experiences, elite tennis coaching, mixology masterclasses and more. With the Hotel’s Athens Riviera Escape – 20% off on stays of two nights or more, check in for a sun-kissed brain-boosting mini-break that’s as inspirational as it is restorative.

 Feel Good, Inside and Out

“Getting healthy” is high on many a new year agenda - and at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, health and holiday go hand in hand.  There’s no vacation guilt on the menu at the Hotel’s beachfront Taverna 37, only secrets of the Mediterranean diet (named US News & World Report’s Best Overall Diet in 2024 for the seventh consecutive year).  From zingingly fresh Kolokithokeftedes to Dakos with Velanidi cherry tomatoes, Santorini wild capers, and Cretan Xigalo cheese, Chef Theodoros and his wellbeing-minded team serve up delicious seasonal and local recipes at the Taverna 37 winter pop-up from 1:00 to 6:00 pm daily. Private Greek cooking classes are also available to continue the healthy eating back home.

Furthermore, the resort-like grounds are a haven for nature walks, swimming in Arion Pool or the refreshing bay waters, beachfront yoga, private Pilates Reformer classes and energetic water sports. For a luxuriously minded lifestyle reset, the Hotel’s Stay Longer – Sixth Night Free offer, valid from January 11, 2024, allows for an extended immersion into a healthier Mediterranean lifestyle, complete with a filling daily buffet breakfast featuring an abundance of healthful local favourites.

Prioritise Restorative Self-care

Inspired by the teachings of Hippocrates - the Ancient Greek “father of medicine” - the Spa at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens is renowned for its Sanus Per Aquam (health through water) experiences. For the ultimate in top-to-toe H₂O, head to the Spa’s Fountain House: an adults-only hydrotherapy zone complete with an aroma steam grotto, hammam, sauna and chill showers. Add energising classes in the Wellness Studio, holistic therapies, seasonal rituals, “miracle” modern cosmetology treatments, hairdressing and nail services for further self-care treats and transformations.

From January 11, 2024, indulge with the Hotel’s Precious Pampering Moments offer, comprising a 50-minute Therapeia Massage, daily breakfast, bottle of Champagne, and more. Consider it more than an indulgence: clinical research shows that self-care can help to reduce anxiety and stress, increase adaptability and strengthen relationships - the perfect set of goals to make 2024 the best year yet.
