Greek wine tanks converted into new luxury Mediterranean escape

A new Greek luxury resort is set to open on the western coast of The Peloponnese. Guests will be given the chance to sleep in converted old concrete tanks that were once used for traditional winemaking.

Opening this summer, the Dexamenes Seaside Resort is built inside a former wine factory that dates back to 1920s. The concrete blocks are roughly 5×6 metres and are to be designed as simple and chic bedrooms that are situated close to the beach. Furthermore, there will be a walkway that connect each room.

The rooms will contain a double bed and a single bed that can act as a sofa, a wardrobe and a storage area with a double shower separated by a wall of textured glass that allows natural light to fill the space.

Speaking to Lonely Planet News Nikos Karaflos said the “the history and the location of the site was the main inspiration for the creation of hotel. The derelict, industrial structures have been left relatively untouched since the 1920s, sitting quietly on a site that literally dips its toes in the water of one of the most unspoiled and beautiful stretches of coastline in the western Peloponnese. It is a naturally ideal location for a hotel.”

The luxury resort also has a Mediterranean restaurant offering vegan, vegetarian and other choices. There is also a lot of places of historical significance close by. This is one not be missed opening in May.

Here is what it looks like:
