Pathway to Relaxation

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

“Matére” is the Mycenaean type of the word “mother,” which refers to the connection to “Mother Earth,” since the hotel is in constant contact with the surrounding nature and has a clear eco-friendly and sustainable direction, and to the history of Sifnos, which was a great Mycenaean center during the Bronze Age. As the hotel concept is based on the idea of different routes, it is also implied that the hotel is going to be the start-point for every route for the visitor during their stay, just like the mother is the beginning of every course in one’s life. “Sifnos” is also added to make the destination known to the visitor from the start.

Logo Description

The logo of Matére Sifnos represents the Mycenaean syllable “ma” as a contemporary symbol. It also looks like the design of a butterfly, which refers to the importance of nature for the hotel, and the figure of a woman, who represents a mother.
