Searching for a place to stay at Larissa, I have checked many hotels online but the only one made me to feel that I want to visit. On the way to the hotel, I was indeed surprised by its location. Its in the main centre, just next to the Ancient theatre, surrounded by many cafeterias and shops. This memorable hotel is a mix of glamour, history, art and fashion that offers you a truly divine experience. So here it is how my stay at Junior Suit of Divani Palace went.
Prior my arrival I have received an email from the manager asking me if I have any special requirements and on the same day of my arrival I have received a call from the receptionist in the case I need something or have questions about the trip how to get there. Honestly, I didnt have any special wish and as well just knowing that I can be free to ask them for any help was making me to feel more confident and be positive about my trip.
From the train station of Larissa, I took a taxi and arrived in few minutes in front of the hotel. I need to mention that everytime I entered or left the hotel I was greeted and asked if I need any help or information. But let’s go back to my check in. I didn’t have to queue at all and checked in was processed in around 5 minutes. I was told about the wifi password (it’s without cost), the spa facilities of the hotel where I had access too, and also where the bar and restaurant were located. The lady asked me politely if I want that they take my bag to the room, but honestly it was a small bag so I could handle it by myself. Ah and one small detail! The people in hotel were addressing me all the time by my name which I really liked!
I got a Junior Suit. A spacious living room, small hall on the entrance, separated bedroom, bathroom with various amenities and huge balcony. The suit is equipped with a lot of sockets so if you are working from your laptop, charging your cameras or phones, you will be more than happy! Beside the warm welcome that I found on the table of the living room, the most magnificent thing about the suit was the view!
SO if I was not on the balcony, most of the time I spent in the bedroom. The room has the queen size bed, the wardrobe, sofa with a small table, television, working desk and mirror. It was really light room which was important for me. Also as well as the living room, the bedroom has access to the balcony. The peach colour and wooden details combined with antique style, made me to feel like a princess. Immediately I arrived I got changed into the softest I ever wore bathrobe and spent my afternoon in the bathtub reading.
In the bathroom you will find a lot of amenities, although I need to say that I didn’t enjoy so much the bath and shower gel. Also in the bathroom you will find plush soft towels.
After the comfy sleep, the next important thing is food. You can reach the restaurant by any of two elevators. The breakfast is served from 6.30am till 10am. Both days the breakfast offer was the same.
However, you could choose between croissants, eggs made on few different ways, fried vegetables, meat, cereals… fruits? As you can see, I went for a safe basic breakfast. The only things I was missing was a bit stronger coffee and something chocolate!
make time for yourself
Talking about this hotel, and sharing my experience I cannot miss talking about the spa. In order to relax you can choose between pool, fitness area and wellness centre. The wellness centre includes a steam bath, an indoor heated pool with overhead waterfalls to release the stress, state-of-the-art machines and convenient loungers.
ATTENTION. I know that many of you would think about the hygiene of any spa place while you are considering to visit it. Divani Spa is definitely the cleanest spa centre I’ve been till now. In order to use the pool, you will have to previously take a shower and use the cap for swimming as well as to use the clothes and towels given to you when you enter the spa. The only negative thought is about the working time which is from 12- 20h. Usually, I would go to the spa and gym in the morning after I wake up and before I start the new day so in this case, I couldn’t make it.
Is Divani Palace place I would recommend to my friends?
YES. The staff of the hotel is friendly and polite. During my stay, I was kind of annoying guest asking all the time questions but they didn’t mind it even during the time when I was bothering cleaning lady that was in my suit. I didn’t mention before, but the whole hotel is really clean and tidy! This hotel will offer you the full experience, as well as making you be surrounded by places you must see. There is no chance to get lost or to stay hungry, or maybe to be bored. Also even though it’s in the centre, it is not noisy during the night and people can have a nice sleep.
Now I am leaving you guys and going to dive into my Divine experience. Will you join me?
