Fire Safe, Stylish Sofa and Upholstery Fabrics at an Architectural Hotel of the Year in Greece
Contessina Suites and Spa Hotel FR-One Greece
Famed for its unique mytho-historical architecture, idyllic white sand beaches and mouth-watering moussakas, Greece remains a must-go destination for most travellers. While Santorini, Athens and Crete immediately spring to mind, slightly off the touristy track lies the island of Zakynthos. Nestled within it, is the most recent winner of the Greek Hotel of the Year award: Contessina Suites and Spa. In a country where tourism contributes to a whopping 18% of the annual GDP and houses almost 10,000 hotels, this is no small feat. The hotel’s island views are a breath-taking sight to behold, the Mediterranean dining options offered are a delight to the palate and their infamous spa is remarkably fashioned in the likeness of the picturesque Benagil Cave in Portugal; still, the accommodations offered by Contessina are the real attraction.
With some rooms offering private pools, this 5-Star hotel is not one to stinge on luxuries; yet they do this in a manner void of ostentatious opulence. The accommodations in Contessina appear to follow a naturalistic theme: each room is promised a view of the island’s crystal-clear waters; sturdy wood furniture and houseplants tastefully furnish the room interiors and every room is lushly upholstered in calming earthen tones with fire-safe FR-One fabrics. These fabrics remain a longstanding favourite of the luxurious Marriott, Hilton and Sheraton hotel chains, amongst others – and most recently, it seems, of the Contessina Collection as well. These naval-grade fabrics which are approved by the US Coastguard bridge the gap between fashion and function, providing a stylish yet safe environment for hotel guests to unwind in.
Designed specifically for travellers who seek peace, pleasure and privacy, the contemporary suites and state-of-art relaxation facilities offered by this hotel make it the perfect destination to make the most of your ‘you’ time. Contessina Suites and Spa truly sits at the very peak of luxurious living.
