A short drive from the iconic ancient sites and modern attractions of Athens, in the heart of the Athenian Riviera, the Arion Resort & Spa offers a pine tree-dotted seaside paradise with private sandy beaches, just steps from the azure Saronic Gulf.

Our endless amenities—ranging from signature spa treatments, a private beach, and sea view pool to premier restaurants, bars, and fitness facilities, including tennis and water sports—provide the perfect balance of recreation and relaxation.

Mixing warm modernity with legendary Astir Palace elegance, our 123 guest rooms and suites boast stunning sea and garden views while 58 secluded bungalows offer the same engaging décor plus complete privacy and, in select cases, a private pool.

Located on the private Astir Palace Resort peninsula in Vouliagmeni, the Arion Resort & Spa is nestled in the heart of the Athenian Riviera, surrounded by the crystal-clear blue waters of the Saronic Gulf, which is lined with sandy beaches and palm trees. A natural seaside oasis at the foot of the Hymettus mountain range, it is just a half-hour drive or 25 km from the cosmopolitan city center of Athens and 24 km from the airport.
Guests interested in Athens rich culture can explore numerous landmarks and archeological sites while contemporary-minded guests head to nearby Glyfadas prestigious shopping district, where high-end boutiques meet outdoor cafés. Known as the Hellenic Hamptons, it is just ten minutes from the resort and—along with Vouliagmeni and Varkiza—offers some of the areas most beautiful beaches.

While in the area, dont miss the Theater of Dionysus—the oldest theater in the world—situated at the base of the Acropolis. Another notable monument is the Temple of Poseidon. Built in the 5th century B.C., it is located in the Cape Sounion area and honors Poseidon, the god of the sea.
Absorb all of Athens from Lycabetus Hill and dont miss Syntagma, Constitution Square, or Piraeus Port, which has been the port of Athens for more than 2,500 years.Take a break in the National Garden. Designed in 1938 by Amalia, the first Queen of Greece, the park includes a duck pond, small zoo, Botanical Museum, and more. Meanwhile, the Megaron, or Athens Concert Hall, offers the perfect conclusion to an inspiring day.
Just minutes from the resort, Vouliagmeni Lake, with mineral rich waters, is one of the most impressive natural wonders in the area.

As in all of Greece, the local currency is the Euro and the national language is Greek, although English is widely spoken in tourist a

WOW. Talk about 5 star service. I was there for a conference recently and was treated very well from concierge, check-in desk and room service.FYI - The room I had on the second floor facing the water was amazing. Planning on coming back now as a tourist!

We had a great time here, it feels like being on a Greek island with an equally nice beach. Athens downtown is only 30 minutes. Food options at hotel are limited.

This is probably the best hotel in Attica to visit And have a swimming. The view is breathtaking and it's really exclusive

The Astur Palace complex, including the Arion, is an excellent place to stay...fantastic facilities and great service. My only disappointment was that the outdoor pool wasn't heated and in late September it was absolutely freezing!
