“From its warmhearted people and the unique ingredients of local cuisine, to the lush vegetation and the mesmerizing beaches, Zakynthos has just so many meaningful experiences to offer.”

The architects worked in the lush natural landscape and included the centuries-old olive trees in their design, also using natural techniques and materials such rustic oak wood, bamboo, and rattan. The result resembles a luxurious tropical island settlement.
