Year of Operation
A Boutique hotel that connects the city’s history with sustainability
In the heart of the Old Town of Nafplio, on Syntagma Square, Epoch Hotel & The Orange Shop takes you on a captivating journey through time. Guiding you across the city's ancient to modern history, the hotel creates a unique "storytelling ambiance" with a contemporary sustainable character. The spacious suites offer a premium sleeping experience, modern technology, and private balconies that provide direct views of Greece's most historic square, surrounded by buildings that have shaped the country's destiny. "The Orange Shop," located at the hotel's entrance, connects your stay with local experiences, serving as a delightful delicatessen spot that introduces you to the region's agricultural production and enhances the overall sustainable development of the hotel. To complete your unforgettable "small city" experience, the exclusive "Secret Breakfast Veranda" serves a renowned breakfast menu available exclusively to hotel guests.
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.
Epoch comes to us, via Medieval Latin, from Greek epochē, meaning "cessation" or "fixed point." "Epochē," in turn, comes from the Greek verb epechein, meaning "to pause" or "to hold back."
Epoch : an extended period of time usually characterized by a distinctive development or by a memorable series of events
The general sense of the design of the hotel logo is that of a very bright, light-colored and pleasant environment, which highlights modern, sustainable character that we want to emphasize.
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.
