An exclusive experience

Meters from the Atlantic coast, WHITE is the result of a passion that João and Catarina Reis share for creating unique, intimate places in singular landscapes. This devotion to providing an exclusive experience, where time crawls at another pace and nature controls our rhythms, is emblematic of a stay at WHITE.

The stillness, calm and ocean breezes provide the tranquility that most need for a truly relaxing vacation. When João and Catarina discovered the ruins of an old summer house with magnificent views overlooking the ocean, they knew they had a magical place. At White Exclusive Suites, guest can now choose from nine suites (with rooms between 27m² and 38m²) and one exclusive villa with 42m² comfortable space. Nearly all accommodations offer sea views and fully equipped kitchenettes.

From Farm-to-table

Singular Properties is currently developing an organic farming project to supply the restaurants with incredibly fresh, tasty and healthy organic, self-produced groceries at competitive prices, while promoting and developing an ecologically- and socially-responsible production chain that is integrated into the entire operation.

The organic farm project is based on a chain of trust and sustainability with the aim of knowing and controlling the various stages of the food production cycle, right up to the table in the hotel’s restaurants such as Cardume restaurant. Cardume is a gastronomic trip around the world using the best products from the Azores: locally caught fresh fish and pasture-raised meat, aromatic herbs, the freshest fruits and vegetables from our farm. Nothing is left to chance by Chef André Fragoeiro and his team. Every moment is planned with an intense purpose: to savor.

Natural coastal landscape meets modern luxury

Overlooking the grand beach of Santa Barbara, Santa Bárbara Eco-Beach Resort, the Azores’ first ecologically-friendly eco-beach resort was opened in 2015. It began with a passion for the natural black beaches along the picturesque northern coast of São Miguel in the Azores. The unique, almost magical, green pastures and mountain hues that contrast with the azure blue oceans are the ideal backdrop for a calming resort retreat. The inviting natural coastal landscape, the elegance of the modern luxury spaces and the commitment to a full-range of experiences epitomizes the passion for the art of hospitality, nature and, above all, the Azores.

The resort is dedicated to sustainability:  The architecture and luxury amenities, the Farm-to-Table supply chain, environmental support and energy/water efficiency programs were constituted to reduce the ecological impact, maintain the natural beauty and environmental balance of the coastal ecosystem.

Architecture in harmony with natural surroundings

The resort’s architectural design and the choice of materials were selected to blend harmoniously with natural surroundings. The minimalist architecture was adjusted to the morphology of the land, in order to minimize its impact on the natural landscape. This was enhanced by the use of natural building materials sourced locally or nationally, such as the islands’ cryptomeria, exotic bamboos and domestic cork that built on the simple natural setting.

Construction of the Santa Bárbara resort prioritized the use of natural materials, primarily the use of local wood (cryptomeria), cork and bamboo, and infused decorative elements that callback to traditional Azorean motifs and accents. Santa Bárbara’s furniture was designed and built exclusively for the resort. Other decorations were made from repurposed materials, such as lamps which were made from oil containers of an abandoned farm, and the restaurant chairs and tables which were made from reused iron and covered with vegetable fiber, using matting crafts.

Moments of well-beeing

Santa Bárbara has several spaces where you can peacefully relax. The outdoor decks facing the sea are arranged in different corners, with chairs where you can simply sit and contemplate all the surrounding nature. Take a dip in the pool or go down to the beach. In the restaurant / bar you can dine or simply try one of the snacks, cocktails and gins. You can also relax at our Wellness Retreat and book a massage for a moment of pure pleasure and relaxation – with the sound of the sea as your background music. You can choose from 14 studios, 7 one bedroom villas and 9 two bedroom villas, all elegantly furnished with a small equipped kitchenette, a stylish living space and a spacious balcony that allows visitors to observe, contemplate and relax to the coastal breeze.

From-farm-to-table takes you to an oriental journey

Santa Bárbara offers a gastronomic concept that will take you through an oriental journey from India to Japan, in an unexpected discovery of exotic spices and authentic flavors. All this with the necessary praise for the quality of local products – which includes Azorean meat, fresh fish and seafood from the Atlantic, alongside the freshest vegetables, aromatic herbs and fruits that now arrive from our farm installed on the property, with two greenhouses and an approximate area of ​​4000m2. A way to guarantee a zero kilometer products and extra quality in a true “farm to table” concept.

Best Room – Retreat Villa

Retreat Villas offer the most exclusive comfort in the Resort and a magnificent view you can enjoy from your private jacuzzi on the terrace. You can choose from a studio, a one-bedroom and a two-bedroom villa

An unexpected Hotel experience

Dexamenes Seaside Hotel is located on one of the most unspoilt coastlines of the Western Peloponnese, on Kourouta Beach. The former winery, located directly on the sea front, consists of wine tanks, which have been minimally restored to retain their original industrial appearance, and are laid out in two parallel rows of concrete blocks with an extension in steel frame construction.

The renowned Athens architecture firm k-studio was commissioned to redesign the former wine factory. From the outset it was clear that the strong history and raw beauty of the existing buildings should not only be preserved, but be showcased in a design that would breathe new life into their walls. The new design compliments their brutality with elegant interventions and transform their austere functionality into a place of calm, comfort and relaxation. A complimentary palette of concrete, steel, timber and engineered glass ensures that new construction elements tread lightly, leaving the existing buildings relatively untouched and retaining their strong presence.

34 industrial chic suites in converted former wine tanks dating back to the 1920s are available for design-loving guests to enjoy an exceptional stay from April to October. Many of them have a wide covered terrace overlooking the Ionian Sea. The patina of exposed interior concrete walls contrasts with engineered glass partitions and polished terrazzo floors while elements of timber add dashes of warmth in a nod to the area’s nautical history. Dexamenes is an architectural slice of Greek trading history on the mainland’s western Peloponnese coast.

In addition to its architectural roots, the luxury resort also focuses on regional culture and local experiences. Considering that the Peloponnese peninsula has more vineyards and grape varieties than any other region in Greece, it is not surprising that local specialities and viticulture play an essential role at Dexamenes Seaside Hotel. The kitchen prepares a variety of choices from breakfast to dinner that vary from degustation menus to hyperlocal meals with traditional references, putting in high priority the dietary preferences of each guest. In addition to the hotel’s open kitchen laboratory, where cooking courses and wine tastings are offered, guest can indulge in Greek cuisine at the taverna or enjoy a drink at the beachfront bar-lounge. The boutique “Bakaliko” with local products and delicacies also embodies the regional culture of Greece. You can find peace and relaxation in an ex wine Silo Tank converted into a contemporary sanctuary where therapies such as yoga, sound healing and massage treatments take place.

Best Room – Beachfront WineTank Suites

Stay in a former wine tank that is now almost monastic in its pared down design, letting you unwind to views of the sea. A comfortable 30sqm room of carefully organized and beautifully detailed space, designed to sit within the exposed concrete walls of the tank without inhibiting their unique texture and patina. Each room features a Cocomat double bed adjacent to a single bed that can also act as a sofa, an open wardrobe and storage area and a bathroom separated by a wall of textured glass that allows light from the window to reach the back of the tank. A huge double sink and separated WC bring a sense of luxurious comfort to the minimal, pared down interior.
