Greece is on track to break tourism records and surpass 2019 tourism revenues as more and more people pour into the country. Incredible beaches, crystal-clear blue waters, and sunshine draw visitors from around the world. Earlier this summer, Delta partnered with SKY Express to make it easier for Americans to visit famous places in Greece. As one of the most sought-after destinations for Americans this summer, the partnership came at the perfect time. So, getting there is easier and more affordable, but what about staying there?
A recent study revealed Athens as one of the best destinations for getting the most bang for your buck in Europe. While this is certainly true, don’t make the mistake of thinking the rest of Greece isn’t good value! To prove the point, we have narrowed down five 5-star accommodations where you can stay for less than $150 per night. The prices shown were found using booking.com for a 7-night stay in mid-September.
Athens – Piraeus Theoxenia Hotel
Cost Per Night – $105
Athens has so much to offer and is an excellent city for first-time visitors to Greece. History is around every corner, with the Parthenon, the Acropolis, and the Panathenaic Stadium all just an Uber away. After a day of exploring the city, head back to this 5-star stay for an evening swim in the rooftop pool. The hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the closest beach and is near the train station for easy access to the city’s center.
Ioannina – The Lake Hotel
Cost Per Night – $123
For a more laid-back stay away from the crowds, this 5-star stay is sure to get your mind right while sitting next to the beautiful Lake Pamvotis. History lovers will enjoy the area with remnants of ancient Greece, the Romans, and the Ottoman empire. The Ioannina Castle is a popular tourist attraction and displays Ottoman and Byzantine elements in its architecture.
Ioannina – Hotel Du Lac Congress Center & Spa
Cost Per Night – $124
This 5-star stay is also in Ioannina, making it an ideal base camp to enjoy all the attractions in the area. However, this one comes with the added benefit of an on-site spa. Guests can enjoy the steam room, sauna, and swimming pool for a relaxation-driven day. The hotel is only a 15-minute walk from The Ioannina Castle and a short drive away from Perama Cave, the country’s second-largest cave.
Hersonissos – Village Heights Resort
Cost Per Night – $115
Hersonissos is an excellent location for action-packed days to offset your time relaxing at this 5-star stay’s spa. Star Beach is only an 8-minute drive from the hotel. It offers a waterpark, scuba diving, tubing, paragliding, jet skiing, bungee jumping and more.
Daily foam parties with live DJs and thumping bass are a great way to let loose before heading back to your cozy room with its own kitchenette. For those looking to get away from it all for a day, Aposelemis Canyon is nearby, offering beautiful views along a hike that isn’t too strenuous.
Limenaria – Blue Dream Palace Trypiti Beach Resort & Spa
Cost Per Night – $148
The Blue Dream Palace may fit the bill for travelers looking for a stay where they could spend their whole trip on the property. Surrounded by beautiful hills and tucked away into its own corner, this property features its own private beach area, two outdoor pools, and a heated indoor pool. An on-site spa is available for those looking to unwind, and the property has two restaurant options and two bars. For those looking for a bit more adventure, numerous local companies will take a group out sailing for the day to see Greece from a new perspective.
