Peloponnese, Greece

Dexamenes Seaside Hotel

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

Dexamenes Seaside Hotel stands as a breathtaking testimony to Greece’s ability to merge history with contemporary allure. The structure, initially a series of 1920s wine tanks, now graces the golden sands of Kourouta Beach in the Peloponnese. Seamlessly blending architecture with the beach, Dexamenes becomes a beacon for aficionados of design and those with a penchant for the sea. Set against the backdrop of watermelon fields, olive groves and vineyards, this locale breathes a tranquillity rare to find and places guests in close proximity to Ancient Olympia, the cradle of the Olympic Games.

What are the rooms like?

The hotel’s 34 rooms, once concrete wine tanks, exude a unique, near-monastic charm, their deep patina narrating tales from yesteryears. This transformative design provides nine rooms with mesmerising views of the Ionian Sea, while the others offer a distinct perspective of aged, cylindrical tanks. Guaranteeing restful slumber due to their thick concrete construct, the rooms also flaunt luxurious bathrooms fitted with textured glass walls and showers. A highlight is the neo-classical standalone villa by the beach, formerly the manager’s quarters, now boasting two suites, bunk beds and a welcoming kitchen space.

What else?

Dexamenes ensures guests experience the essence of the Peloponnese. Curated experiences range from candle-lit dinners in vacated wine tanks to explorations of local vineyards, embracing the region’s viticultural legacy. Engage in eclectic activities like candle-making or art events, all while feeling the sea’s pulse at your doorstep. The beach bar, a shade-enveloped realm, provides a relaxed setting for breakfast, snacks, or a well-deserved sun downer. Come nightfall, the former engine room transforms into a vibrant taverna, serving dishes inspired by classic Greek cuisine, from locally-sourced carbonara to marinated chops from neighbouring farms.

What’s the region like?

Embark on a journey to Greece and the peninsula of Peloponnese (Peloponnesos in Greek), where myth intertwines with history. Across the nation and from the major cities to the charming villages, marvel at Greek monuments spanning all historical periods. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of archaeological sites like ancient Olympia, Epidaurus, Mycenae and Tiryns, the Temple of Apollo Epicurius, alongside Byzantine churches and monasteries. Peloponnesos is beautifully framed by the Greek sea, boasting enticing beaches – sandy and smooth coasts to the west and rocky, intricate shorelines to the east.
