Think Jacuzzi bathtub, king-sized bed, individual pool and decking area overlooking the sparkling ocean.


w FRESH FACES It’s not just about the brand-new, though, with a swathe of updates set to enhance and transform existing properties. Most notable is Athens’ iconic


Astir Palace Hotel, which has been turned into a Four Seasons property and is set to debut in the spring. Marking the brand’s first foray into Greece, the renovated property will boast infinity pools, a beachfront promenade, spa facilities, and luxury suites and bungalows. It’s set around the upmarket Astir peninsula, where high-end shops, restaurants and a marina are scattered among scenic, pine-covered gardens. Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas in


Crete, meanwhile, has introduced Waterfront Dream Line Villas for 2018, including two and three-bedroom family options, each featuring either


From highly-anticipated openings and renovations to new tours and family attractions, there’s lots to look out for in the region


private heated pools or terraces with direct access to the sea. And nearby Daios Cove has its own news to rave about: the recently-introduced Resident’s Club concept, which gives all suite and villa guests a free upgrade to all-inclusive (not applicable between July 8 and August 28). Back on the Peloponnese, families will be excited to hear of the new Mega Olympia Aqua Park opening at Grecotel’s Olympia Riviera. The water park, which had its soft launch last June but is officially opening ready for the season this year, will be the


biggest of its kind on a hotel complex in Europe – think three football pitches’ worth of water slides, rides and other attractions set by the beach, where five resorts make up the complex. There’s exciting news a hop, skip and a jump away in Cyprus too. The five-star Columbia Beach Resort at Pissouri Bay has reopened following almost a year of renovations that have seen all rooms converted to suites, plus a revamped kids’ club, new infant creche and other updated amenities. Other developments on the island include a large-scale construction project to transform Larnaca Port and Marina into the biggest marina of its kind in Cyprus, with 1,000 berths. Meanwhile, in Ayia Napa developers


are building a marina from scratch. The project, which began in 2016 and is set to be completed by 2021, will see villas, apartments, shops, restaurants and more spring up around a 600-berth, full-service port. Who needs a new you when there’s all this to play with?
