Hotel Typology

The first stage of our Services, which includes the Research & the Typology Study, helped the Hotel Owners take their final decisions regarding the hotel's Typology (type of property, room types, grounds, etc) and its main Features and Facilities, aiming to increase the hotel's ADR as well as its sales potentials from its various departments and services.

Hotel Experiences

During the Hotel Concept Development process, we specified the main idea and the narrative of the new hotel, which will allow it to stand out from the competition. At the same time, we specified all the new hotel's experiences, services, and operation model, in order to help the architectural and design teams to capture all the requirements for its final design.

Hotel Branding & Implementation

In order to have a fuller image of the Concept, we have created an initial branding for the new hotel that captures its feel and essence, and which must be taken into account during the design process. At the same time, we presented a series of indicative applications and implementations of the branding, in order to convey in a more tangible way the feeling that will be exuded during the hotel's visual communication.

Name Description

The name of the accommodation is inspired by the term 'ampati', which is related to
the dry stone walls of Kythnos, which are considered to be among the most beautiful of the
Cyclades. The ampati is the gateway that demarcates the various properties and leads to
and the word is inextricably linked to the culture of the island.
and the deeper meaning of the concept.

Logo Description

The Abates logo depicts the "embrace" of the two opposite islands,
Pepper and Sirforpula, bringing to the fore a characteristic element
of the property's landscape and a key element of the concept.
