Clean-cut retro chic predominates at this 1965 landmark built by well-known Greek architect Nikos Valsamakis as a part of one of the country's oldest hotel chains—one look reveals the sleek, modern, low-lying hotel blending seamlessly with 35 acres of hotel gardens which spread down the mountainside to the olive groves and pines of surrounding Delphi with, in the distance, a breathtaking vista of Itea port and the Corinthian bay. This magical scene can be glimpsed from various public verandas and from some of the guest rooms (be sure to check that yours comes with one!). Or check out all the natural beauty from the poolside bar. Inside, an open, central hearth in the lobby sitting area is complemented by modern furnishings and a multihue blue-gray slate floor blocked off in large, varied squares. Comfortable contemporary rooms have light-color wood furniture, olive green cupboards, and balconies.
