Oscar nominees receive a holiday to Greece


Greek resort

Don’t feel too bad for the 2018 Oscar nominees who don’t go home with a statuette today, as they are all receiving a lavish gift bag, which includes a getaway to a luxury villa in Greece!

Every year, the nominees are treated to exclusive giveaways from sponsors and increasingly, the Academy Awards is a chance for brands and their marketers to catch the eye of A-listers and all Hollywood celebs.

Avaton Greece

The nominees will be treated to some R&R at Avaton Luxury Villas Resort in Halkidiki, Northern Greece, which overlooks the Athos Peninsula and the Aegan Sea. This stylish and contemporary beachfront escape is located at the sparkling turquoise waters of Komitsa Bay in Athos Peninsula and consists of an exclusive collection of 16 villas.


Some of the villas include private pools, leading down to lush Mediterranean gardens and a pristine beach. There is also a VIP service, where you can choose your won personal butler or chef and have a refreshing massage or yoga session. From here you can also  take a trip around Holy Mount Athos, a UNESCO World Heritage Monument on a private yacht.

The Oscar swag bag also includes a holiday to Tanzania and Hawaii, as well as a commissioned piece of art, a phobia relief therapy session and 10 sessions with a personal trainer.

This year’s nominees include Meryl Streep, Margot Robbie, Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson, among others.
