Beyond anything, the Alexander the Greater Resort provides a uniquely luxurious and immersive experience for guests. Enacting a development and hospitality plan, the resort creates a tailored and unforgettable visitor experience. Working alongside it, the planning and landscape designs integrate the special attributes of the site in which the resort is located, to create the best wholistic visit possible. The simple and natural beauty of the resort greets arriving guests by creating a calm and welcoming feeling, designed to reinforce its wellness mission. The resort’s natural elements subtly embrace the guests, forming an organic decompression chamber in which they can leave the stress from city life behind, and enter into harmony with their surroundings. Following the objective to create relaxation and well-being, the hotel and spa facilities work to envision the resort’s foundation. The hotel also offers exceptional dining facilities, lounges, and luxurious accommodation to create an atmosphere of calmness, along with active lifestyle-orientated health and fitness spaces, including an equestrian center.

The design footprint includes 450 hotel rooms, 150 villas, and 300 chalets in different architectural styles, including Egyptian, Turkish, and Indian. Its simple blue and white design also reflects the notion of Greece in ancient times, from costumes of Alexander’s era to the legendary Veil of Minerva. Through its design, architecture styles, and connection with natural surroundings, the Alexander the Greater Resort emphasises highly personalised experiences and promotes a dialogue with nature for the purpose of wellness. A sense of discovery and wonder is revealed upon entry with and while staying at this unique Mediterranean resort
