Greece’s biggest hotel has opened in the eastern town of Corpus Christi, bringing a slew of luxury amenities to a city of fewer than 4 million.
The Corpuses Christi Resort & Spa, which has opened for business since mid-May, will boast a spa, gym and bar, a fitness center and indoor sauna, and a restaurant, according to a news release from the company.
The resort will be the latest in a string of Greek hotels to offer such amenities, and the first in a country where hotel occupancy is nearly half the national average.
The resort’s arrival comes on the heels of a major restructuring in the hotel industry that saw Greek resorts and hotels cut their occupancy rates in half over a three-year period.
That led to the resort opening for business in May.
The Corpids have had to cut back on their stay space as well as reduce the number of rooms available, though the company said it expects the reduction in rooms will not impact guests’ overall spending.
The resorts will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well an indoor pool and sauna.
The spa will offer a private gym and saunas.
The pool is free.
The hotel will have the most luxury amenities of any hotel in Greece, including a gym, a sauna and indoor pool.
The sauna has a retractable pool, as will the fitness center.
The bar has a high ceiling, and is equipped with private viewing rooms.
The outdoor sauna is free, and features a saunter that allows guests to go to the sauna for free.
Hotel Corpions Christi is set to open to guests at 4 p.m. local time on May 1.
The company said that the resort will open with a 10 percent discount for customers with a deposit of more than 1,000 euros ($1,800).
The hotel is located on a 1,200-hectare (1,000-acre) site on the outskirts of the capital, Athens.
Corpides Corpis Christi has opened the Corpys Christi Hotels, a resort and hotel chain, and will also open a hotel next year in the city of Kallikapatnam.
Corpus was founded in 1797, and has been a major resort in Greece since 1811.
It has more than 70 hotels in its network, according in its website.
Corporations in Greece have a variety of options for travelers, including domestic, international and international-oriented hotels.
Some international travelers use hotels as a way to access their destinations in the event of a travel disruption.
For example, the government has shut down a popular cruise ship for a period of time due to a cruise ship strike.
