Dexamenes Seaside Hotel is located on Kourouta beach on the western coast of the Peloponnese in Greece and it will open May 2019. The hotel has been created on the site of an abandoned winery. The derelict, industrial structures that characterize the site have been left relatively untouched since the 1920’s but Nikos Karaflos, a visionary entrepreneur-turned-hotelier changed that! The old tanks have been converted into 34 guestrooms, many of which have a private patio overlooking the sea. The design with a lot of steel, glass, concrete and timber, is led by K-Studio.
