Aldemar Olympian Village and Aldemar Royal Olympian are situated on a lengthy stretch (2 kms) of golden sands, one of the glorious beaches of the Western Peloponnese. Along the largest coastline in Greece, both of the Aldemar Resorts hotels face, across the sea, the islands Zante and Cephalonia. Alexandros Angelopoulos, CEO of Aldemar Resorts, was delighted to introduce his properties to the Greek-American community and invite them to Western Greece.
The National Herald: What makes Aldemar Resorts the best choice for visitors to Western Greece?
Alexandros Angelopoulos: The unique setting of magical beaches, romantic sunsets, plus a rolling landscape of fertile and green land create a special experience for those that visit. I would like to add that we have made every effort not to disrupt the environment with excessively modern architecture and, in fact our brand of effortless luxury is linked to the local culture, and its people. We’ve also invested in sustainable tourism practices, adding to visitors’ sense of wellbeing whilst taking into account their carbon footprint. With practices that are fully aligned with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on environment, society, and governance, the term ‘sustainability’ holds a key position in our agenda. It is no wonder that our hotels are the best-selling resort hotels in our market as we strive to offer visitors something to look forward to with our slogan: “Celebrate Life!”
TNH: What can participants look forward to when they visit Aldemar Resorts?
AA: In very few words: local hospitality, local culture, and local food alongside international and Mediterranean recipes from the team of Sympossio, Greece’s gastronomy tour, which takes place every winter and travels throughout Europe – promoting Greece on a dish! The provision of products of the Greek earth, through the practical support that is given to the local producers, the Ilians, will fascinate you and will take all your senses on a marvelous journey. Our efforts across our resort hotels have gone into providing a unique mix of relaxation and a sense of total freedom, as the hotels are built in village form, allowing people to be themselves by making the most of nature’s finest sand, sea, and gastronomy – wrapped up in a warm welcome.
There are plenty of outdoor activities on and off the water for adults and children, bringing our guests closer to nature and fostering total respect for it. Guests devote time to unwinding and being with their nearest and dearest. We might sum it up by calling it a utopian seascape on Greece’s mainland. Guest are also so near to the UNESCO heritage site of Ancient Olympia – we believe the ancients would also like it very much!
TNH: How far in advance should those interested book their stay for Aldemar Resorts in Western Greece?
AA: As tourism recovers and demand is getting stronger by the day, the sooner the better, but three to four months before departure is recommended.
TNH: What special features are offered at the resort?
AA: We introduced the ‘Elements’ all-inclusive as a lifestyle option. This combines a rich dine around with a complimentary day in our award-winning Thalasso & Spa centers, where they can enjoy daily yoga and pilates, Nordic walking, plus chill out and relax zones for R&R – and no electronics makes a remarkable difference to body and soul! These holistic programs offer the guest a complete nutritional plan based on antioxidant- and nutrient-rich foods with an emphasis on the pure products of nature. Through relaxation and calming techniques, they provide inner balance programs that reduce the effects of stress, rejuvenate the skin, and balance the functions of the human body, giving a feeling of total well-being. Absolute emphasis has been placed on the healing properties of the earth and water, which is reflected in the accommodations which have been renovated according to a philosophy of well-being.
TNH: Are there any discounts available for booking early?
AA: We do have early booking discounts annually and these can be viewed by visiting https://www.aldemar-resorts.gr/
