By | April 30, 2023

Bloomberg pays tribute to the luxury resorts and hotels that will open their doors for the first time this year in Greece, ahead of the tourist season.

As the publication notes: “Last summer, everyone from Elon Musk to footballer Mo Salah was in Mykonos, enjoying the sun, the Aegean Sea and the island’s famous nightlife.” He then adds that Greece’s tourism industry, which accounts for 25% of the country’s GDP, is booming, with a boom period gradually doubling or even tripling in length.

Citing the words of the Minister of Tourism that holidays in Greece are no longer just about the three months of summer – a trend that began with the recovery strategy from the coronavirus pandemic – Bloomberg lists six new luxury hotels and resorts which will open this year, noting that they attract all kinds of visitors, from those looking for a hidden island getaway to those looking for seaside retreats a short drive from the historic center of Athens.
