GRECOTEL CORFU IMPERIAL

CORFU, GREECE

SUMPTUOUS ITALIANATE GARDENS BRING A NEW BEAUTY TO THIS STUNNING PENINSULA IN THE IONIAN SEA

Located on an idyllic peninsula on the island of Corfu and set against a backdrop of the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea, the natural beauty of the site sets this hotel apart.

Influenced by Corfu’s historic links to Italy and the Italian Renaissance garden styles, the hotel sits as a juxtaposition between the elegant modern and a classical jewel.

Scape were involved in the design and construction of a significant refurbishment to this grand five star hotel.  We provided a dedicate team on site for two months during construction and assisted in overcoming the significant design challenges faced to reinvigorate the arrival experience, gardens, pools and landscape terraces.

The proposals create a platform to connect with the stunning natural landscape.  From the arrival courtyards built around existing characterful olives, to a new elegant lower pool perched above the sea, to stylish garden pavilions with views across the water and the mountains beyond.  All set amongst grandeur of the Italian-style gardens.
