Astir Palace Resort

 Astir Palace in Vouliagmeni, Greece


The Westin Astir Palace Resort, at Vouliagmeni, is only 12Km distant from Athens Airport and half hour's drive from Athens. It is built on a pine-grown promontory bathed by the clear, turqoise waters of the Saronic Gulf a location that is generally acknowledged as the most beautiful in Attica. The Resort is owned by the National Bank of Greece, the country's leading financial institution, and is operated by the Astir Hotel Company wich over the years, has become renowned for its consistent dedication to the highest standards in hotel-keeping.

The three hotels on the promontory have been built in such a way as to blend with the natural environment and take full advantage of the magnificent view over tha sea and the surrounding landscape.

The Arion, the Nafsika and the Aphrodite are all fully equipped to satisfy the audio-visual, secretarial, simultaneous translation and telecommunications requirements of any modern congress, conference or meeting and can host receptions of up to 1,500 persons. Every year, the Astir Palace Resort is chosen for an ever growing number of such functions. In 1996, an added feature to the convention facilities was ISDN lines (Intergrated Services Digital Network), installed at the Resort's conference rooms which makes it possible to hold teleconferences and allows the simultaneous transmission of voice, data, text and video.

Another feature of the Resort is an entertainment group with animators and performers who put on shows and theme parties. They organize "happenings" in all three hotels and at all times of the day.

Finally, the Resort is fully equipped for tennis and for sea sports of all kinds such as water-skiing, windsurfing, paragliding and others.

At the end of their stay, most guests at the Astir Palace Resort tell us they have enjoyed a never-to-be forgotten experience.
