Das Hotel allgemein
Hotel Description & Our philosophy
Let yourself unwind from everything that ties you down in your everyday life in a modern “serene” environment, where all boundaries are crossed between extremities and simplicity, between a luxurious and a mellow atmosphere and between time and space. The personable accommodating character of EKIES in combination with the discreet influence of the feng shui philosophy offer an ideal setting to get away to. There is a fine balance that brings together figures of the past, nature and minimalism, design pieces of Arad, Starck, O’Ghery and Castiglioni, with Greek elements, helping in the creation of a relaxed and restful environment which nonetheless keeps playing with your senses.
The solid wood and Greek grey marble are combined and balance out the metal and steal. Natural, unrefined materials take up a substantial part of the hotel space, as much on the inside as on the outside, in combination with a spontaneous, playful but carefully attended and detailed architecture there is a feeling created that make all the elements seem bound together. Here tradition co-exists with the present and spontaneity with detailed planning.
You won’t find anything excessive in the décor, from the hand made carpet that brings together the reception areas and the linen curtains that surround it, all the way to the huge cuddly sofa – table that welcomes you. In combination with the floored mirrors, that are a substantial element throughout the hotel space, they are part of a game of senses and give somewhat of a theatrical tone to your experience.
The unification of the elements is strongly to be felt in the way the outside space of the hotel is bound together with the sandy beach. A discreet ecological philosophy is distinctive of the architecture and the decoration, cultivating the sense of unity with nature. Lose sense of time enjoying the surroundings while resting on a hammock right by the sea, or on a comfortable eco – mattress by the pool. Your senses will perceive the smells of the forests and the saltiness of the sea each and every moment in each and every space.
Die Lage des Hotels

Zimmer / Unterbringung im Hotel
The game of senses is to be continued in all 65 rooms of the hotel. Each has to offer something unique. No room is the same as the other. Pieces especially made for each and every space are superbly combined with natural materials and distinctive designer objects. Furnished with COCO – MAT collections they create a welcoming, warm and relaxed atmosphere.
“The whole room was filled with adventures…” (Walter Moers, author). A line accidentally found in a story offers an explanation of what one experiences in the rooms of EKIES – ALL SENSES RESORT. From the balconies or terraces the sea, forest or garden view speaks to you, allowing you to relax and rejuvenate. Elements of the Greek tradition are presented to you in a modern way, combinations that are rare to find in everyday life come in this space to awaken your senses, to provoke thoughts and contemplations that are often blocked out by the flow of day to day life.
