Poseidonion Grand Hotel Review

Set with fin-de-siècle cupolas, imposing mansard roof, and elegant neoclassical facade, this landmark mansion was acclaimed as the Saronic gulf's own Hotel Negrescu in 1914—like that Nice landmark, this hotel was built to attract the cosmopolitan ocean-liner set and, today, after reopening its doors in 2009 after an extensive five-year refurbishment, the Poseidonion has been hailed as the most elegant hotel in all the Greek islands. While the restoration preserved its aristocratic aura, it also brought everything into the 21st century, replete with minimal mod furniture and loads of classy five-star hotel luxuries (Etro bath products for starters). There is a renovated historic wing and a new wing (done in the original style) next to the main pool. The Aneton on the Verandah Restaurant offers a high-style menu of Mediterranean delicacies, while Freud Oriental offers delicious Asian-inspired meals, or opt for light dishes, salads, and cocktails in the Library bar. Topping it all off is the spa, residing in the adjoining Goudi building—a beauty built in 1900.
