Tucked away up north in the posh suburb of Ekali, this pair of glass-walled, three-story, sixties-modern blocks would suit the sensibilities of a rich, sybaritic Buddhist. Amid grassy gardens with sundecks, terraces, and two pools, the 30 big, open rooms have dark bamboo platform beds, flokati rugs on travertine floors, white-paneled, backlit walls, and views of Mounts Parnes and Penteli. The spa, Ananea, offers Thai massage and hot-stone treatments, plus a sauna and hammam. It's not the most convenient of retreats—you have to walk to Kifissia for the Metro—but retreat it is. If someone plopped you down here blindfolded, you'd never guess where you were: Latin America? (the bar's called Pisco Sour); Ibiza? (it has a 24-hour DJ); the Hollywood Hills? (mod Med food at Avenue 103 and a Richard Neutra-ish aesthetic). Still, cultural confusion has never felt so luxurious.
