Guest Testimonial

I wish to thank you for your superb organization of a wonderful holiday especially as catering for numerous requests and changes must have been very difficult. My confidence in you was not misplaced. You (NIcola Wallington) are a huge asset to Abercrombie & Kent, and I would be grateful if you confer my sentiments to your superiors.

Immerse yourself in the rich history of the island of Spetses with a luxurious stay in one of the islands most famous landmarks. Overlooking the beautiful seafront, The Poseidonion affords some of the best views in town, which is understandably why it attracts royalty, high society and rich Athenians time and time again.

Often described as the heart of the island, The Poseidonion encompasses the elegance and glamour Spetses is so famous for. Once inside the hotel, the high ceilings and light elegant décor gives the impression that time has stood still since it was built in 1914, however in 2009 the hotel re-opened after undergoing a meticulous five-year restoration programme, combining the original architecture with the finest up to date facilities.

The hotel is now comprised of the historic wing and the new wing, both presenting luxuriously unforgettable experiences with the comfortable airy suites and guestrooms. Enjoy the beautiful views afforded by the tranquil sea-front location while indulging in fine dining from one of the three hotel restaurants. From Asian-inspired fusion cuisine to gourmet or just a light snack, the sumptuous food at the Poseidonion is renowned on the island.

Best time to be there

The mainland and islands are very hot and dry in July and especially August, the preferred travel month for French, Italian and Spanish holiday makers, making conditions busy, hotel availability limited and the beaches crowded. May, June and September are infinitely more comfortable and generally less expensive.
Rhodes, with its refreshing westerly winds and moderate summer heat, makes it the ideal place to travel for a summer holiday or a short break in the spring or Autumn.
