Set on a lush, sandy beach along the Aegean shores of the Greek Island of Serifos in former 1900s-era miners residences, Coco-Mat Eco Residences takes luxury to an expansive level. Here, guests are welcomed into spacious two-story apartments crafted with an eye toward unifying nature, simplicity, and elegance. Recently renovated, the beachfront resort respects local architecture traditions and unites these with forward-thinking sustainability. Industrial and Cycladic elements also merge to create a unique new aesthetic.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
After studying European culture and spending 15 years as the general manager of Coco-Mat—an international brand of natural sleeping products based in Athens, Shanghai, and Amsterdam—Kostas Maltezos wanted to expand the essence of Greek hospitality even further. Maltezos created Coco-Mat Hotels n’ Resorts in 2012 and Coco-Mat Eco Residences in 2013, which was inspired by its Vagia Beach setting. “I cannot forget the sound of the waves the first time we slept there,” Maltezos explains. “It was like both a lullaby and good company, and the sound woke us sweetly the next morning.”
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Architect George Zafiriou has proved his mettle in reanimating a historical yet dilapidated building with Coco-Mat. The hotel is housed in an old miners residence, and its industrial feel compliments traditional Cycladic elements to create spaces both in harmony with their surroundings and forward-thinking in terms of sustainability. Zafiriou employed bio-climatic techniques that ensure the building benefits from natural air conditioning throughout, while interior designers Ioanna Founti and Zili Karahaliou used earthy tones, deco items from Serifos and Athens, and customized furniture to ensure guests would be simultaneously immersed in authenticity and pampered in luxury.
