Almost four decades since its formation in 1981, Grecotel S.A. is the largest hotel chain in Greece with 32 resort hotels and a total bed capacity of over 16,500.
The Grecotel Hotels & Resorts (4*and 5* hotels) are located in Crete, Corfu, Chalkidiki, West Peloponnese, Rhodes, Mykonos, Kos, the Athenian Riviera, Athens, Larissa, and Alexandroupolis.

The Group features four distinctive collections – Boutique, Beach Luxury, Lux Me, and Lifestyle All In Hotels & Resorts. Each of the 32 luxury hotels and resorts has a distinct character, with a strong focus on design inspired by its stunning surroundings – many being close to notable Greek archaeological sites. The accommodation caters for every taste and whim: sea view rooms, family suites, and bungalows, with the option of a private pool and gym, and exclusive villas.
The Group excels when it comes to its service culture, always striving to surprise and delight. The warmth of Grecian hospitality is one of many reasons guests return to a Grecotel resort year after year.
Over 6,700 personnel are employed in the Grecotel offices and hotels, making it the most significant employer in the Greek hospitality sector.
