Greek resort crowned best Wedding destination in Europe

Award 1


Another win for Greece’s tourism sector in the recent World Travel Awards as the five-star Grand Resort Lagonissi was voted Europe’s Leading Luxury Wedding Resort at the World Travel Awards 2016, one of the most prestigious accolades in the hospitality industry. The announcement was made at the 2016 Europe Gala Ceremony, held in Sardinia, Italy, on September 4.

Located on the seaside peninsula of the Athenian Riviera in Greece, Grand Resort Lagonissi held off stiff competition from around the world, including luxury resorts in Italy and Portugal, before being awarded with the title. The property has also been recognised as Europe’s Leading Meeting & Conference Centre at the World Travel Awards 2014.


“We are so proud to have been recognised as Europe’s best wedding resort at this year’s World Travel Awards,” said Nikos Tzimas, the resort’s general manager. “From all of us at Grand Resort Lagonissi, thank you for your continued contributions and support in making us one of the best hotels in the world!”

Offering a large selection of enchanting indoor and outdoor wedding venues with catering potential for up to 1,200 guests, the Grand Resort Lagonissi is one of the most ideal places to exchange eternal vows against the backdrop of the azure sea.

Say “I do” in the serene sanctuary of St. Demetrios Church, located on the Grand Resort Lagonissi premises, for a wedding ceremony fit for a fairy tale. Loving couples can also choose to be wed on a spacious veranda under the sunset at Uranus, plan an intimate reception at the elegant Veghera, evoke romantic elegance in a beachfront ceremony at Villa Elounda, revel in the bliss of lush green gardens by the poolside at La Piscina, or create memories that last a lifetime at the cosy, seaside setting of Aphrodite.

Grand Resort Lagonissi’s bespoke wedding services will ensure that guests receive only best treatment on their special day, from a dedicated banquet team to help with planning, renowned chefs to assist with tailor made menus, talented pastry chefs to design a dream wedding cake and professional designers to aid in venue decorations. Specialised services ranging from photography and bridal facilities to limousine rentals and special effects are available as well.

Now in its 23rd year, the World Travel Awards is widely regarded as the most celebrated event in the travel industry, a venue for government and industry leaders to connect with international print and broadcast media.
