Just 10 miles south of Athens, amid the palm-fringed beaches of the Athens Riviera, sits Cape Sounio Grecotel Exclusive Resort. Here you're close enough to Athens to make the most of all this historic city has to offer, yet you can also escape the crowds to lie on the beach, stroll along the promenades or just relax in your elegant accommodation and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Temple of Poseidon, directly opposite the resort.
The luxurious Immortal's Spa enjoys spectacular views over the hotel gardens and Poseidon's Temple. Here you can enjoy a range of natural therapies based on Greek herbs and flowers, as well as traditional Ayurvedic treatments. After a pampering body treatment, facial or massage, you can relax in the gardens or by one of the three pools while you sip a freshly-prepared tisane.
