A Great Greek Getaway at Grand Resort Lagonissi
By Maria Athanasopoulou
A short while ago I had the great pleasure of being able to spend a weekend in the beautiful five-star hotel Grand Resort Lagonissi. Located on the sea front of Attica on a hill just above a beautiful sandy beach, my stay at this beautiful luxury hotel was a weekend I won’t soon forget.
My first impression as I entered the hotel – and a lasting impression for sure – was the wonderful welcome by the employees. I also immediately realized that there were no cars in the hotel area; this was a nice touch, and meant we had to be picked up by hotel staff from the parking are and then shuttled to the reception desk in order to check in, an effortless process that lasted only two minutes. Everything was done very quickly, very efficiently, and very courteously.
We were then driven by the hotel staff to a bungalow located overlooking the hotel’s beautiful beach. Our bungalow was extremely spacious and luxurious, well-decorated, and extremely comfortable. It was also very bright, with floor-to-ceiling glass allowing us to gaze out over the sea. In addition to a king-size bed, it had a beautiful living room, and a large bathroom with a great Jacuzzi tub.
Enjoying the Views at Grand Resort Lagonissi
After settling in, the first thing we did was order a cool frappe coffee and get out on the balcony to enjoy the fantastic view. And I must say, I was treated to one of the finest sunsets I’ve ever experienced.
But back to this lovely luxury hotel. We stayed for a great three-night getaway, and during this all-too-short period of time we managed to relax while enjoying similar beautiful views from other nice spots located around the resort, as well as being able to enjoy great drinks at the hotel bar.
And every morning after waking up we were treated to a very delicious breakfast. The hotel restaurant also serves excellent food at lunch and dinner, too, which of course we enjoyed as often as we could during our stay. The staff were always smiling and cheerful, and always ready and willing to serve us.
For this reason – and of course its lovely rooms and suites – it’s little wonder that Grand Resort Lagonissi is considered one of the top-rated (and most famous) five star hotels in Greece. Add to this its exceptional location overlooking the water, the peace and tranquility on the resort’s very own private beach, and it’s easy to see why it’s so popular.
It is also worth mentioning that the Grand Resort Lagonissi has a very large spa area offering world-class beauty treatments and services, while the surrounding area is lush and ideal for walks. The outdoor swimming pool is also great and offers endless hours of sunbathing and swimming.
If you plan to visit Attica in the future and are looking for something special for your accommodation – somewhere where you can relax and escape from everyday life – then I highly recommend the Grand Resort Lagonissi for s superb vacation or weekend getaway.
