Sleep in wine reservoirs
Located in Greece, on the Peloponnese coast, directly on the beach of Kourouta, Dexamenes Seaside offers a unique experience by offering guests to sleep in old wine reservoirs.
Nikos Karaflos, a visionary entrepreneur turned hotel owner, transformed an old wine factory abandoned since 1920, with the help of the Athens-based architecture firm K-Studio. Two long parallel concrete blocks divided longitudinally into 2 rows of 10 storage tanks were preserved, and a steel extension was added. These tanks covering an area of about 30 sqm were perfectly sized to become rooms.
Dexamenes Seaside includes 34 rooms connected by a wide wooden walkway raised above the sand. The rooms, with their minimalist and clean design and neutral colors, were designed in concrete, polished terrazzo, steel, glass, with the addition of several wood details. Each room is carefully furnished in an industrial style, with a bed made up of natural Coco-mat, a bench seat, an open dressing room, and a pivoting mirror. The bathrooms, equipped with a double shower and a double washbasin, are separated by a wall of textured glass allowing light to enter. Each bedroom has large sliding glass windows opening up directly onto a patio.
The hotel has a tavern restaurant and bar where healthy food and wine are key players on the menu. The hotel also offers different spaces including a studio for yoga sessions, a lounge, a luxurious vineyard garden, a store with local products, a room dedicated to the site’s history, and sun loungers facing the calm seaside.
With its waterfront location, Dexamenes Seaside is a simply dream-like spot.
