Design concept: Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens

by | 24 Sep 2021 | Design

A TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive, we take a closer look at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, which opened in 2019 with 300 fully updated rooms and its very own helipad.

This major transformation of the original Astir Palace Hotel marked Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts’ long-awaited entry to Greece.

A new era for the landmark hotel

Early 2019 saw the debut of Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, a scheme that cleverly drew inspiration from the original property’s historic glamour. The fully renovated property is idyllically positioned in 74 acres of lush landscape on the Athenian Riviera, 30 minutes from both the centre of Athens and Athens International Airport.

K-Studio handled the architectural aspects of this renovation, while Meyer Davis and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio worked alongside it on the interior design, and TUUCI supplied sunshades. Overall, the property now exhibits a fresh, modern look that stylishly spills outdoors, with abundant use of natural materials throughout.

Highlights of the Four Seasons hotel’s sprawling footprint include three private beaches connected by a boardwalk, three swimming pools, five tennis courts, a basketball court and extensive trails. Watersports such as windsurfing are catered for as well, and families can take advantage of a complimentary kids’ programme. The property even has boat access and its own helipad.

Combining modernity and heritage

Guests are accommodated in light-filled rooms and suites, along with ultra-exclusive garden cottages.

The rooms and suites are housed in two distinct buildings, Arion and Nafsika, while the hotel also boasts eight distinct culinary concepts, from Italian trattoria-style Mercato and beachside Taverna 37 to Latin American grill Helios and seafood specialty restaurant Pelagos. And The Spa at Four Seasons incorporates The Fountain House hydrotherapy zone, which pairs inspiration taken from ancient Greek traditions with state-of-the-art facilities like an aroma steam grotto, hammam, vitality pool and chill showers.

Last but not least, events are hosted in a variety of indoor and outdoor function spaces accommodating 70 to 700 attendees.

Concepto de diseño: Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens

by | 24 Sep 2021 | XX Archive Spanish

En exclusiva para TOPHOTELDESIGN, analizamos de cerca el Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, inaugurado en 2019 con 300 habitaciones totalmente renovadas y su propio helipuerto.

Esta importante transformación del original Astir Palace Hotel marcó la tan esperada entrada de Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts en Grecia.

Una nueva era para un emblemático hotel

A principios de 2019 se estrenó el Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, un proyecto que se inspiró de manera inteligente en el glamour histórico de la propiedad original. La propiedad, totalmente renovada, se encuentra en una posición idílica en 30 hectáreas de exuberante paisaje en la Riviera ateniense, a 30 minutos tanto del centro de Atenas como del Aeropuerto Internacional de Atenas.

K-Studio se encargó del proyecto arquitectónico de esta renovación, mientras que Meyer Davis y Martin Brudnizki Design Studio trabajaron junto a él en el diseño interior, y TUUCI suministró las sombrillas. En general, la propiedad muestra ahora un aspecto nuevo y moderno que se extiende con estilo al exterior, con abundante uso de materiales naturales en todo el edificio.

Lo más destacado del hotel Four Seasons es que cuenta con tres playas privadas conectadas por un paseo marítimo, tres piscinas, cinco pistas de tenis, una cancha de baloncesto y amplios senderos. También se ofrecen deportes acuáticos como windsurf, y las familias pueden aprovechar un programa infantil gratuito. La propiedad tiene incluso acceso para barcos y su propio helipuerto.

Combinar modernidad y patrimonio

Los huéspedes se alojan en habitaciones y suites llenas de luz, junto con cabañas de jardín ultra exclusivas.

Las habitaciones y suites se encuentran en dos edificios distintos, Arion y Nafsika, mientras que el hotel también cuenta con ocho conceptos culinarios distintos, desde el Mercato, una trattoria italiana, y la Taverna 37, junto a la playa, hasta el asador latinoamericano Helios y el restaurante especializado en marisco Pelagos. El Spa del Four Seasons incorpora la zona de hidroterapia The Fountain House, que combina la inspiración de las antiguas tradiciones griegas con instalaciones de última generación, como una gruta de vapor aromático, un hammam, una piscina de vitalidad y duchas frías.

Por último, pero no por ello menos importante, los eventos se celebran en una variedad de espacios para eventos interiores y exteriores con capacidad para entre 70 y 700 asistentes.
