An Outdoor Living Experience within a Mediterranean Garden
Déum Zante sets itself apart as an unparalleled hotel experience. Embracing the beauty of nature, boasting elevated rooms and suites, delivering exceptional services of the highest caliber, indulging guests with exquisite local cuisine, and encompassing an overarching ethos of luxurious tranquility — it effortlessly creates the ultimate and most authentic Greek getaway on the island of Zakynthos.
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.
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.
The hotel's name draws inspiration from Greek Mythology, according to which two Gods, Artemis and Apollo, used to roam the rich and dense forests of Zakynthos. Borrowing the word God from Latin (Deus), we make a reference to the Venetian history of the island, while the use of the word in the general plural (of the Gods), creates the meaning of the 'garden of the Gods'.
However, as we do not want the hotel to be associated with the concept of mythology, the word is used 'decoratively'. Therefore, the punctuation mark is placed in É, which makes the word unique. Basic components of the concept of the hotel are nature but also life outside - elements that are also connected with the meaning of 'divine'.
The word Déum reveals the high level of experience we promise to customers, while underlining the modern way of contact of today's guest with the concept of 'divine', which can be achieved through nature. At the same time, keeping the word Zante in the main name, helps both the organic placement of the hotel in the online searches, and the potential customers to immediately recognize the destination in which the property is located.
The logo of Déum Zante is inspired by the design of the main garden of the property and of a basic plant found in Mediterranean and Greek gardens - lavender. This particular herb, with its special color and aroma, is a reference point in a garden, while the special shape of its flower has led to its schematic imprint for use in the logo of the new accommodation.
For the completion of the project, Destsetters collaborates with esteemed Architectural and Design teams, in the context of the thorough application of the concept to the overall experience, the correct specification of the anticipated operational needs, and the new hotel's commercial potentials. The Architectural & Design teams are selected by the investors/project owners and play an active part in the overall decisions regarding the development of the new property.
