Grand by name and by nature, the Grand Resort Lagonissi is nestled on the so-called Athenian Riviera, a 72-acre peninsula south of the Greek capital. The property itself feels like its own enclave, with extensive grounds and facilities, all blessed with loads of Mediterranean flair. Bungalows and suites are positioned to take full advantage of the classic Aegean vistas. Though the sights of Athens beckon, some travelers may choose to never venture beyond the lush grounds of the resort. Ten restaurants, including an acclaimed Italian inspired eatery and the open-air Greek Galazia Akti, accommodate any palate. The Thalaspa Chenot takes an Eastern approach to holistic and relaxation treatments. Private sandy coves surround the hotel for those who want a day alone.
