Staying at Dexamenes is truly an exceptional experience. Where else would you spend the night in a wine tank that has been carefully converted into a stunning bedroom with the help of glass, steel and timber to form a supremely minimalist, almost Zen-like aesthetic? With a total of 34 WineTank suites, the hotel separates its sleeping quarters into three sections: Beachfront, Courtyard and Backyard. Each one reflects the pared-down cool of the architect’s vision while comprising all the comforts necessary to create a sanctuary for sleep and relaxation.
All rooms feature:
Sustainable luxury mattresses (Coco-Mat), a writing desk and a Sofa Bed, Mini-bar, Safe Deposit Box, and soundproof windows.
These 9 30sqm units have been designed to let the abundant light spread into every corner. The king-size bed is positioned directly in front of the patio doors so you can drift off and wake up in front of the redemptive ocean view and next to it is a sofa/single bed for extra guests or children. Also featuring a private patio with a comfortable seating area and a raised walkway leading directly to the sand.
Looking onto the tranquil courtyard, where the newly-planted vines are just starting to flourish, these 17 suites showcase the hotel’s characteristic industrial-chic aesthetic. With clean lines, brushed concrete and muted natural shades, the Courtyard Suites represent 17 sanctuaries at the heart of the old factory. From the sunny private patio to the minimalist en-suite, the Greek sun enters the space and fills it with its warm glow
Ideal for those seeking peace and privacy, the 8 Backyard suites feature the stunning, pared-down décor that Dexamenes exemplifies, while still providing the utmost in comfort and luxury. Natural mattresses, a spacious bathroom with a large shower and double sinks and a quiet backyard patio give these converted wine tanks a truly singular appeal.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served across three unique locations at Dexamenes: the Ex-Engine Room Restaurant, the Beachfront Bar and The Beach itself. There is a particular charm to eating under the mulberry trees in the restaurant’s courtyard, with fruits from the same trees scattered across your plate. The chef’s creativity has no limits, except for that the ingredients must be as locally-sourced as possible, and dishes range from lightly seared sea bass fillets with puréed local vegetables to homemade pasta, vegan moussaka and the chef’s take on the classic Greek salad.
For breakfast, picture yourself tucking into an abundant salad of fresh fruit, a Greek yoghurt and granola bowl, two glistening fried eggs on toast and a juicy smoothie as you luxuriate on a lounger right in front of the rhythmic ocean waves.
Dexamenes is situated a 3-hour drive from Athens International airport, on Kourouta beach. The nearest town is Amaliada, a typical Greek seaside town where you’ll find stunning, quiet monasteries and churches. Along the waterfront, discover cosy taverns for a fresh seafood lunch as well as plenty of activities, from horseback riding to windsurfing.
Like the fig tree roots, the property is constantly addressing many sustainable tourism areas and excelling in most fields.
Dexamenes Seaside was designed with sustainability in mind.
