Like the Temple of Poseidon, clearly visible from most bungalows, the resort echoes the Attica landscape, the brilliant blue sea and the clear skies of the Aegean. Set amphitheatrically on a 75-acre estate on the edge of Sounio National Park, Grecotel Cape Sounio has 154 bungalows with private gardens (many with private pools).

Weddings and Romance

At the end of the happiest day of your life, or to renew vows for a special anniversary, jet off to Sounio, the “marble steep, where nothing save the waves and I may hear our mutual murmurs sweep” according Lord Byron who inscribed his initials on its exquisite marble columns in the neighbouring Temple.

What better place to choose than the Grecotel Cape Sounio in one of the romantic, secluded Sounio Villas?

The sparkling blue sea, twinkling stars, sensuously decorated guestrooms and discrete service will make your honeymoon or anniversary a once in a lifetime experience.
Luxuriate in a romantic breakfast served on your secluded veranda before soaking up the sun beside the pools.

Later in the day, relax on the panoramic verandas before ending the day with a romantic private dinner for two.

From the moment you check-in for your romantic getaway, we promise you warmest memories that will last a lifetime!
Dining
Every meal becomes a symposium when enjoyed on the restaurant’s wide terrace in full view of Poseidon’s sanctuary – a setting as perfect for a romantic tête a tête as it is for an inspired debate on the bigger issues of life.

Needless to say, Grecotel’s chefs can whip up fine feasts worthy of the gods’ nectar and ambrosia. Sink into a comfortable armchair and sip an aperitif in the Lobby Lounge Bar and Terraces.

Whilst you are soaking up the hot Aegean sun, refresh yourself with a cooling drink or ice cream from the Pool Bar.

Dreamy Elixir Spa

There are many spas in the southern Mediterranean, but none quite like the one at Cape Sounio. This is something you realize even before stepping through the vault-style bronze door.

Inspired by Dr No, one of the early James Bond blockbusters, the octagon-shaped spa has glass exterior walls that create the illusion of being outdoors. The lounge, decorated in stone and metal ores from Sounio’s rich veins, is furnished with wicker seats set low to the ground creating the perfect ambience for relaxing between treatments or simply enjoying a nutrient-rich fresh-squeezed juice and salad while basking in the glorious view.

Scented candles, soft recessed lighting, and soothing chakra-balancing music enhance the transition from the expansiveness of the lounge to the intimacy of the private treatment area. Muted pastels and pale, creamy earth tones create the calming backdrop in the massage suites.

Each of the seven rooms is individually decorated to create small havens that enhance for therapies ranging from Shiatsu, aromatherapy, reflexology and lymph drainage massages to svedana, hot stone therapy, and affusion. Organic plants and extracts from rare aromatic plants grown in the wild are featured ingredients in many of the treatments.
But the one that truly pays proper homage to the sea-god is the Poseidon Elixir, inspired by the grooming rituals of the Classical-era beauties. Finely-ground olive seeds, natural sea salt, and a rich clay are applied in successive scrubs and rubs, combined with sessions in the sauna, to remove toxins. The sequence culminates with a 45-minute four-hands massage with an all-natural deep-penetrating cream with pear and dandelion extracts that leaves the skin silky-smooth and glowing.

In-room massage service available. All treatments and therapies at an extra cost.

NEW EXCLUSIVE TREATMENTS

Choose the unique harmonizing treatment in Greece, with Mineral crystals and Gemstone balm by PAYOT, the world-famous cosmetics house.

In 2007, the Elixir Spa for the first time presents the "Ayurveda" which is known as “The Mantra for Health & Happiness”. A whole new dimension of Spa opens up in Greece as we learn to touch and communicate with you in a manner that honours your uniqueness and body type.
