What financial woes? Greece gets a new touch of glamour

Amid the worldwide uncertainty of Greece’s economic future, a piece of its glamorous past steps back into the spotlight today. After a five-year renovation, the historic Poseidonion Grand, a Cote d’Azur-style hotel on the island of Spetses, reopens as Poseidonion Grace — the newest member of the Athens-based boutique hotel group Grace Hotels.

Roughly 60 miles from Athens, Spetses has that classic Greek island look: a jumble of white-washed villas with tile roofs huddled around a blue harbor. First open in 1914, Poseidonion Grace now offers 45 guest rooms and 7 apartments with private gardens or balconies with sea views. The “Cupola Suite” is a split-level room positioned at the top of the hotel with a vaulted wooden ceiling, while the “Honeymoon Suite” has a private pool. The hotel also claims to be the first hotel to offer seawater spa treatments in Greece.
