The Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, located on the chic Athens Riviera, has announced the appointments of two of the industry’s finest talents to helm its dining outlets.

According to a company announcement, the hotel has appointed Apostolos Dimou as Executive Chef and Michalis Chatzikalimeris as Executive Pastry Chef.

Dimou’s stellar career has seen him head the kitchens of venerable five-star resorts and restaurants around the globe.

Having honed his exceptional flair and finesse under the wing of Michelin-starred master chef Alain Ducasse in Athens, Dimou went on to head kitchens in acclaimed luxury settings from Romanos Starwood Luxury Collection to Sheraton Lisbon, before joining the Four Seasons family in Beirut, Mauritius and Seychelles.

His next step sees him returning to Greece to take on the role of Executive Chef at Four Seasons Astir Palace Athens Hotel.

Master pâtissier Chatzikalimeris is a confectionary alchemist, acclaimed for his vibrant and inventive artistry. Captivated from a young age by flavours of traditional Greek delicacies, he refined his skills under maestros including The Dorchester’s David Girard and Thanasis Tsagliotis, owner of pastry shop La Maison.

His impressive résumé includes tenures at luxury Greek venues from Sheraton Resorts to Adronis and Hakkasan’s Ling Ling, and Courchevel’s La Mangeoire, alongside a coveted role as brand ambassador of Callebaut Chocolate in Greece.
