The term “grande dame” is used in hospitality jargon to underline not only the iconic beauty behind a historic gem but also an elegant high-status ambiance. And Poseidonion Grand Hotel embodies every ounce of this expression. A landmark of Spetses island, and one of very few of its kind in Greece, it has a long history, a prime setting with awe-inspiring views, and elegant architecture of another era. Opened in 1914, and has since undergone major renovations, it still has the allure of its glorious past, when jet setters, royalties and politicians of other distinguished society members vacationed there. From the majestic marble staircase to the stunning balcony views and the Bostani -its own organic farm in the hills of Spetses, Poseidonion is a once-in-a-lifetime hotel experience.
