Poseidonion Grand Hotel & Spetses welcome the new season

For yet another year, the historic Poseidonion Grand Hotel in Spetses is getting ready to welcome its guests and offer them the most special memories.

In the heart of spring and just before Easter, the emblematic hotel opens its doors on March 29th and welcomes guests and friends, always in the spirit of authentic hospitality. With attention to even the smallest detail, the Posidonion family guarantees unique moments with the background of the cosmopolitan setting that has distinguished it for more than a century. Its rooms and suites, known for their elegance, the blooming gardens, the exotic palm trees, and the legendary veranda - the hotel's trademark - make up the ultimate destination for those who wish to have a real life experience during their stay.

Easter at Poseidonion

The island of Spetses is the perfect location to celebrate this special time of year, as a potpourri of sweet scents waft over the island. Scarlet corn poppies and pink rock roses compete with yellow chamomile and the lilac Judas tree for your attention, while the sunshine warms the playful spring air. During Holy Week a solemn atmosphere hangs in the air and the ‘passion’ is reenacted on Good Friday, when flower-decorated biers are devoutly carried from the island’s small chapels in a candlelit procession to converge in the main Poseidonion Square. After this unique experience, we invite you to mark the end of Holy Week with a selection of delectable lenten dishes - so delicious you won’t notice what’s missing. Easter Saturday is a day for rejoicing as the midnight resurrection mass sees the sky light up with a spectacular fireworks display. Ceelebrate the resurrection with a special dinner at On the Verandah. The joyous atmosphere continues on Easter Sunday which is also the culinary highlight of the weekend! We welcome guests to savour a traditional Greek meal served family style: a marriage of locally sourced produce and contemporary gastronomic trends. Finally, indulge in an Easter Monday brunch, rounding off the festive weekend and rejuvenating you for the week ahead.

Flavors and aromas of Spetses

A taste experience full of the aromas of Spetses and Greece by chef Stamatis Marmarinos, awaits to be discovered this year at Poseidonion. The gastronomic trip of Posidoneion is a real experience. The first station is the Library Brasserie restaurant with a menu based on the old Athenian cuisine enriched with touches from all over Greece.
