A TRIBUTE TO KONSTANTINOS MITSIS
Konstantinos Mitsis spent his childhood in Athens during the late 1940s, a difficult time in the post-war Greek capital. He grappled with a number of jobs while completing his studies at the First High School of Athens in Plaka, one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods of Athens. There, restless, creative and strongly spirited, young Konstantinos, searched for an opportunity to start his own business.
At the age of 17, he opened a small textile enterprise. From the very beginning, success was a certainty and in less than 10 years, the small textile enterprise grew into three factories producing 130 tons of yarn every year and employing over 170 people.
Each hotel is built differently, each with its own unique character, while all follow the same philosophy: “each guest’s visit must be a total experience, which is achieved by offering quality accommodation, suggestions for activities, impeccable facilities, sophisticated dining and genuine Greek hospitality”.
A traveller of the world, K. Mitsis has brought his wide knowledge and pioneering spirit to the creation of the first all-inclusive hotel, Norida in Kos. The world of Greek hospitality is renewed by the introduction of a new model that introduces innovative services and new proposals for exciting activities and culinary delights.
The story of Mitsis Hotels reflects the character of a man with vision, a successful businessman who brought to the Greek tourist market his own style. A man who managed to create a new concept for the Greek hospitality industry based on love and sincerity, sentiments ever present in the warm light of the Greek sky.
Gifted with this unique heritage, we keep on building on his remarkable story, developing this blog as the digital footprint of an everlasting legacy.
