THE OVERVIEW

THE OVERVIEW

Poseidonion Grand Hotel, which first opened in 1914, was the brainchild of Sotirios Anargyros, a visionary benefactor who was responsible for much of Spetses’ development. Furthermore, it represented the cosmopolitan face of the island and soon became one of its famous landmarks, a favourite destination for high society, royalty and wealthy Athenians. Situated in Spetses, a picturesque island near Athens with rich naval history and lovely beaches, and, what is more, a destination for jet-setters all year long, Poseidonion Grand Hotel has been the landmark of the island for nearly a century with its exceptional architecture echoing hotels of Côte d’Azur style.

In 2009, after a painstaking five-year restoration programme, it recaptured its past splendour, transforming into one of the Mediterranean’s most elegant and contemporary hotels. The hotel comprises of two buildings with 44 superior and deluxe rooms and 8 suites, several with private gardens or balconies. The hotel offers spectacular views of the Dapia Port area and the sparkling blue-turquoise sea.
Despite its famously grand architecture, Spetses has managed to retain a serene island atmosphere. The horse and carriage remains the most popular form of transport for both islanders and visitors.
The historic Poseidonion Grand Hotel redefines hospitality and luxury. Choose the room that suits you either in the historical or in the new wing of the hotel and indulge in modern amenities, experiencing the ultimate hospitality in one of the most emblematic hotels of the country.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The island of perfumes”, as it was named by the Venetians or “Pityousa” (which in ancient Greek means “full of pine-trees”), is a beautiful, car-free island with numerous wonderful sandy beaches and lovely secluded bays. The island played an integral part in the Greek Revolution against the Ottoman rule and the subsequent birth of the modern Greek State. When the Greek Revolution broke out in 1821, Spetses was the first of the Greek islands to raise the flag of the Revolution on the morning of April 3 1821 in the church of the patron saint, St. Nicholas, located in the old harbour.

Every year, the second weekend of September is dedicated to commemorating the events of the battle of September 8 1822 in which the Turkish flotilla was torched. The events culminate in a re-enactment of the burning of the Turkish flagship in the harbour. Even today, most traditional fishing boats and sea-taxis hoist the blue and red flag of the revolution. The blue signifies freedom and the red signifies blood, along with the words “Freedom or Death”.
