The famed Xenia hotel in Florina is re-introducing itself to the public after a full renovation and a lush makeover!
It was the famous Xenia Hotel that put the picturesque city of Florina on the greek hospitality map, and now its brand new version after a full renovation and a changed attitude (and name) is raising the bar for hotel standards in northern Greece. Welcome The Lynx Mountain Resort, Florina’s new hospitality gem!
With a special identity that bears the signature of the thingk office, it completely drifts away from the classic ‘stone-wood’ aesthetics that one is expecting to find in mountain destinations. The basic design philosophy was aimed at creating elegant spaces with a nordic chic aesthetic and references to the history of the original Xenia building. Natural textures and authentic materials blend harmoniously and create a heartwarming luxury.
The visitor has the opportunity to stay in an incredible location in the heart of nature, in the lush forest with a dreamy view of the Ski Center Vigla-Pisoderio and the city of Florina. The hotel consists of 38 luxurious and beautifully decorated rooms and suites with full facilities, all with their own verandas, rainforest showers, Nespresso bar and luxurious Jo Malone cosmetics. The Grand Suites also feature state-of-the-art double-sided fireplaces, skyline ceilings and unique bathrooms.
In an area with a tradition of local cuisine and many locally produced products, the gastronomy factor could not be less than exceptional. Unique experiences await guests at the must-visit restaurant “Six Lakes” and authentic moments of relaxation in the Wellness Hub and the fully equipped Technogym gym. ‘Veranda’ is the reference point for cocooning with your favorite drink and the view it takes, while Le Prive is the ideal place for corporate meetings and events.
The city of Florina is an iconic destination in itself. The river Sakulevas that crosses it and the old preserved mansions in the city center, give Florina a special atmosphere -the one that inspired the famous director Theodoros Angelopoulos to shoot 7 of his award-winning films in Florina. The rich cultural heritage of the city is highlighted through the Gallery of Artists of Florina, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Archaeological Museum of Florina which are points of interest for art and history lovers.
The area is famous for its countless mountaineering and walking tourism trails (E4 and E6) and offers a variety of organized sports activities such as cycling, fencing and skiing. It is also famous for its excellent wines and visitable wineries, some of which are within walking distance of The Lynx Mountain Resort, such as the Alpha Estate, the Kyr-Giannis Estate and many small local wineries.
Meanwhile, The Lynx Casino Florina which is located next to the hotel, is the ideal evening entertainment after a full day of nature tours, museums and ski resorts.
