The new hotel and residences, Mandarin Oriental, Athens, will be developed on the shoreline of the Greek capital and is set to reach completion in summer 2027.

This Mandarin Oriental property will be at the centre of The Ellinikon, one of the largest sustainably built urban regeneration projects in Europe.

A landmark development

Developed by BELT Riviera S.A., a company established by TEMES S.A. and HELLINIKON S.Μ.S.A., a 100% subsidiary of Lamda Development, Mandarin Oriental, Athens is a part of a ca €8 billion redevelopment bringing new life to this area of the city, which is just a 15-minute drive from the centre.

James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, said: “We are delighted to be working with TEMES SA and Lamda Development SA on this project. I am confident that with this location and our legendary service, Mandarin Oriental, Athens will be the leading luxury hospitality hub for both travellers and Athenian residents.”

Odisseas Athanasiou, CEO of Lamda Development, added: “This new high-standard hotel complex will become another beautiful landmark and serve as an additional international point of reference for this emblematic investment of The Ellinikon.”

Achilles V. Constantakopoulos, Chairman of TEMES, then commented: “We are thrilled with the progress of our strategic partnership with Lamda Development, and very proud to welcome together this exceptional brand to the Athenian Riviera.”

Coastal luxury

This highly anticipated property will pair high-end contemporary design with unobstructed views of the Aegean Sea.

The property will house 123 rooms and suites, along with 17 branded residences, which include waterfront villas and apartments. This accommodation will be joined by a range of restaurants and bars aimed at both guests and locals, as well as indoor and outdoor event space and the Spa at Mandarin Oriental.

Mandarin Oriental, Athens is set to become the second Mandarin Oriental property to open in Greece, following on from the development of Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino, which opens this summer.
