The hotel becomes the first Mercure property in the country, expanding Accor’s presence in Greece
RHODES – 20 JULY, 2021 Mercure is excited to announce its entry into Greece with the opening of Mercure Rhodes Alexia, a stylish city retreat on the island of Rhodes. The new hotel becomes Accor’s most recent addition to the tourism landscape of the south-eastern European peninsula, offering refined, internationally recognised hospitality services.
Located in the heart of Rhodes, Mercure Rhodes Alexia emerges as an oasis of peace on an island of dynamism. Rhodes is home to miles of Aegean coastline and 49 Blue Flag awarded beaches - the second most in all of Greece. The island is a cultural landmark in its own right, with a long and rich history as the centre of the Dodecanese. Its medieval city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, serving as an enduring symbol of the island’s proud past.
During their stay at Mercure Rhodes Alexia, guests will enjoy a wide array of facilities, in-cluding wellness services and treatments in the hotel’s state-of-the-art spa. A rich gastro-nomic profile will be exhibited in Mercure Rhodes Alexia’s two restaurants, both offering an extensive range of contemporary flavours infused with traditional techniques.
With its 136 rooms, most offering sea views, the hotel is located in the epicentere of Rhodian life, with Niochori Beach lying only 50 meters away, and cultural sites like the Castle in the Old Town, Mandraki Port and the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights less than 2 kilometres away. A helpful concierge team can organise day trips to the scenic Symi Island, or to the naturally therapeutic waters of the Kallithea Springs. Whatever the desire, Mercure Rhodes Alexia is the perfect home base for explorations on ‘the Island of Knights.’
“It’s a great honor to be joining forces with the Accor Group under the Mercure brand. We are delighted to welcome travellers to Mercure Rhodes Alexia, a unique heaven on the is-land of Rhodes. Our entire corporate family of Nikolaos Soulounias SA is excited to embark on this new journey, ready to show the world the true meaning of authentic island hospi-tality” declares Maria - Annna Soulounias, Owner and CEO of Mercure Rhodes Alexia.
“Accor is delighted to welcome Mercure Rhodes Alexia as the newest destination in our ever-expanding portfolio. With its stunning environment and long history of refined hospi-tality, Greece is a clear and strategic location for Group expansion. We look forward to what is set to be a positive and dynamic venture” says Jerome Lassara, Development Director Accor, Southern Europe.
