Avaton Luxury Beach Resort is situated on a relatively undeveloped stretch of beautiful beach on Halkidiki’s Mt. Athos Peninsula, about 90 minutes from Thessaloniki, is a member of Relais & Chateaux, a global organization of independently-owned luxury hotels and restaurants numbering about 580.
Founded in 1954 in France, Relais & Chateaux’s motto is "Caractère, Courtoisie, Calme, Charme et Cuisine" (Character, Courtesy, Calm, Charm and Cuisine).
Set amongst the rich greenery of Halkidiki’s Mt. Athos Peninsula, Avaton Luxury Hotel is fronted by the transparent, aquamarine waters of the Ierissos Gulf, a wide inlet of the northern Aegean. Mt. Athos Peninsula, most of which is claimed by Mt. Athos, the chain of monasteries built on the spine of the lower three quarters of the peninsula, is the least touristically-developed portion of Halkidiki’s three arms, and, considering the status of most of the peninsula as a set-aside place for holiness and contemplation in perpetuity, will always be underdeveloped.
This guarantees a quiet, peaceful vacation venue, which is what most of desire in a vacation, thus making the resort an ideal destination. A major international airport is a little more than an hour away, making it convenient for that vast majority of guests coming by air.
Avaton Luxury Hotel offers 36 luxury suites, villas, and rooms. Most offer private pools set amongst the bright green of abundant plant life, in sharp contrast to the often much more arid environment you’ll find at most other Greek resorts.
The entire complex is situated on a rise of land overlooking the beach and the sea, and the downgrade is landscaped to provide a grassy terrace which has umbrellas and sunbeds- sort of a beach with grass instead of sand.
Guests especially like the sense of privacy the location affords, the personalized care of the staff, which includes a tour of the premises, the wide beach and the clear waters of the sea, and the excellent food choices and quality.
Room décor features various shades and versions of white and cream, with muted, understated primary colors and green on some pillowcases top sheets and furniture upholstery. The effect is to convey a sense of cleanliness and comfort.
Amenities include luxury items in the bath, highest quality linens, slippers, bathrobes, hair dryer, sun beds, beach towels, sea view for all rooms and suites, in-room bar, electronic safe, tea/coffee maker, with various services available such as private butler and in-room spa treatments and private dining for an extra charge.
Note: there is no common pool on the resort. Some rooms have pools, and some don’t depending on the category. This shouldn’t be a problem since you’ll be a literally just a couple minutes from one of the best beaches in Halkidiki.

An excellent day trip is the 90-minute trip to Thessaloniki, considered the cultural capital of Greece. Thessaloniki is a beautiful city located on the slopes of a natural amphitheater formed by Mt. Hortiatis and its foothills, on the shore of the Aegean Sea's Gulf of Thermi.
A lively, cosmopolitan city with a rich, complex history of more than 2300 years, Thessaloniki has broad shopping avenues coexisting with narrow back streets, old houses next to high-rise buildings, and historic sites woven into the urban fabric.
At the seaside promenade (Nea Paralia) you can not only just sit at one of many coffee shop overlooking the water, but also stroll, ride in a horse-drawn carriage, rent a bike, or cruise along the seafront on a floating cafe-ship.
There are 15 structures designated, collectively, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, stitching together the features of the “world’s best open-air Byzantine museum.”
Thessaloniki provides nearly unlimited opportunity to explore and enjoy one of the most unique and beautiful cities in the world.
