Arion, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Astir Palace, Athens
The Luxury Collection Concierge
Our Luxury Collection Concierge is a bilingual, certified destination expert, proudly wearing the “Les Clef d’Or,” the gilt insignia of the celebrated international concierge society and eager to reveal the secret treasures of Athens.
In addition to assisting guests with dinner reservations, floral arrangements, and golf information, our concierge desk is pleased to aid with ticket arrangements and tours, as well as provide comprehensive area information. Memorable tours---like one-day island hopping or an afternoon tour to Cape Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon---offer guests unforgettable moments. Tour buses pick up our guests directly from the hotel. Advance reservations can be made through the concierge department.
Other must-see recommendations from our concierge include:
Lake Vouliagmeni: Underground currents seeping through Mount Hymettus feed the “Sunken Lake,” which features a world-renowned underwater cave. Additionally, its constant tepid water temperature enables the lake to function as a year-round spa.
Syntagma & Constitution Square: The main square in Athens, with its grassy outdoor café, is a popular central gathering space and offers a view of Greek Parliament Syntagma Square and the extensive National Gardens.
Cape Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon: Recognized since prehistoric times as a place of worship, Cape Sounio was an important sanctuary during the Greek Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods. Additionally, the cape’s location at the tip of Attica rendered it an important military location, resulting in the construction of a still standing mighty wall and garrison.
Glyfada Golf Course: Just 9.2km from the resort, this Donald Harrad-designed course offers some of Greece’s best golfing. A green oasis of rolling hills, indigenous trees, and shrubbery, it is a picturesque and evocative way to enjoy the island’s beauty. Equipment rentals are available at the course.
