Mandarin Oriental to open Athens property

Mandarin Oriental has blazoned plans for its alternate Greek property and the first in the country’s capital Athens.

The 123- room hostel will be positioned within The Ellinikon – an$ 8 billion civic rejuvenescence design on the point of the megacity’s former Hellenikon International field.

The oceanfront Mandarin Oriental, Athens is listed to open in 2027, and will also offer 17 ingrained places, including shorefront estates and apartments.

There are many details about the hostel’s installations at present, but the group verified that the property would offer “ several food and libation outlets ”, as well as a gym and inner and out-of-door event space.

It’ll be the alternate Mandarin Oriental hostel in Greece, joining Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino, which is set to open this summer on the southwest seacoast of the country’s Peloponnese.

The Ellinikon design comprises around 360 hectares of mixed use space south of Athens megacity centre, formerly home to Hellenikon International field until it closed in 2001 following the opening of Athens International field.

Features are set to include Europe’s largest civic demesne, as well as domestic, retail and office space, a marina, and a Hard Rock hostel and summerhouse.

Opining on the news James Riley, group principal superintendent of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, said

“ We’re pleased to be working with TEMES SA and Lamda Development SA on this design. I’m confident, that with this position and our fabulous service, Mandarin Oriental, Athens will be the leading luxury hospitality mecca for both trippers
and Athenian residers. ”
