Scene

Rich in opulent details, from fresco ceilings to marble floors

From the gold lettering and five stars crowning the hotel’s entrance to the five-tiered chandelier hanging from the lobby ceiling, Electra Palace specializes in opulent details. The lobby is grand with gold-detailed chaise lounge chairs, marble flooring, and a fresco ceiling. The outdoor areas are impressive as well: The rooftop pool has painted dolphins on the bottom and a wooden deck with flowers and plants. The ground-level pavilion sits inside a manicured garden decorated with palm trees. Guest can enjoy a snack at the lobby bar with leather sofas or have a romantic Greek meal at the rooftop garden restaurant.
