The Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso is located in a unique setting near Vouliagmeni, just 25 minutes drive from Athens city centre. Situated less than 30 minutes drive from Athens International airport, this is an excellent hotel for both your leisure and business needs offering quiet luxury at the prestigious Athenian Riviera.
The area around the hotel also offers a range of tours and excursions, including fashionable Glyfada and the archaeological site of Sounion which boasts some of the most beautiful sunsets over the Aegean Sea.
The sheltered coastline of the Saronic Gulf which runs from southern Athens to the point of Attica is referred to as the Athenian Riviera. This is an ideal place to swim, relax at a waterfront café, walk along the picture-perfect pedestrian streets and the marinas, exercise your favourite water sport, shop in one of the area’s modern shopping centres, dine by the sea or entertain yourself in one of the coastal avenue’s buzzing clubs.
The beach nestling in Vouliagmeni bay, with its lovely views over the distant Saronic islands, is one of the finest beaches on the Greek coast. Fine sand and turquoise water make this an idyllic setting.
Five minutes from the centre of Vouliagmeni is a sunken lake fed by lukewarm springs in the remains of a limestone cave. Its mineral, silky waters are reputedly good for rheumatism and arthritis.
Glyfada, also known as the “Beverly Hills of Greece”, is only a 5-minute drive away from our resort. This luxurious seaside suburb offers high-end shopping opportunities, upmarket restaurants and cafés, and some of the best-known nightclubs in the region.
48 km south of the Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso, at the tip of the Attica peninsula, lies the promontory of Sounion. Atop the headland are perched the ruins of an ancient temple of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. In ancient times the temple was the last sign of civilization seen by Greeks sailing from Athens and the first for those returning. The site affords a magnificent panorama stretching as far as Peloponnese and breath-taking sunset views.
