Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Set in landscaped gardens, the Avaton Luxury Hotel & Villas is ideally located by the Athos Peninsula in Halkidiki, where you can dive into the beauty of the Aegean Sea, discover pretty islands and visit the holy UNESCO-listed Mount Athos, which, according to Greek mythology, was created by Poseidon, and today its monasteries possess priceless treasures.

Rooms at Avaton Luxury Hotel & Villas

Choose from luxurious rooms and suites with plush king-size beds, and furnished balconies or patios where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the Aegean Sea. Many of the villas have a private pool with in-built sunbeds: for the ultimate Mediterranean experience, the spacious three-floor villa comes with an in-room bar, an expansive patio, a private pool and its own garden, overlooking the beach.

Food & Drink

Dining at the Avaton is an experience in itself: taste innovative Greek cuisine, based on traditional recipes and making the most of local and seasonal ingredients. Start your day with a variety of delicious and refreshing breakfast creations, including a typical Greek breakfast featuring cheese and spinach pies, local honey, feta cheese and Greek yoghurt.

Dine at the Atelier restaurant, which is an open-air restaurant on a hill right in front of the sea, where you can look out over Mount Athos while enjoying a gourmet meal. The Origin restaurant also offers exquisite Greek cuisine, using locally-sourced produce from the area's fishermen and farmers. In the evening, visit the lavish Champagne Bar and have a refreshing cocktail while listening to music and watching the sunset.


For a day of pure relaxation, enjoy a yoga session on the beach under the shade of Mount Athos, meditate in the hotel's gardens, or visit the wellness cabana to pamper yourself with personalised massages and treatments. If you prefer something more active, exercise with a personal fitness coach.

Activities at Avaton Luxury Hotel & Villas

Go on a mountain hike to the Varvara waterfall, and take a boat ride along the Athos Peninsula and admire its beauty while learning about the area and its history, and discover hidden beaches and bays, enjoying lunch onboard. For a dose of local history, head to the Prosforion Tower in Ouranoupolis to see its fascinating Byzantine exhibits, or visit the History and Folklore Museum, housed in one of the oldest buildings in Halkidiki.

If you are travelling with your family, let your children be entertained at the kids club, with cooking classes, a cinema, games and much more on offer.
