Treehouse dining for a laid-back luxury hotel

Treehouse Restaurant

Located on a pristine beach in Vourvourou, in Greece’s Halkidiki region, and surrounded by rocky islets, secluded caves, crystal waters, and pine tree forests, the 69-room Ekies All Senses Resort – a Design Hotel –  is an idyllic hideaway.  Its re-done Treehouse restaurant has been designed by Milan-based agency CTRLZAK Art & Design Studio, whose founders Katia Meneghini and Thanos Zakopoulos say they took their creativity from the stunning array of flora and fauna that can be found in the region. “We took inspiration from the natural wonders surrounding the resort,” says Katia Meneghini. “From the Mediterranean pine trees to the tiny organisms that are found in their branches.”  The restaurant’s floor has been rendered from pine wooden planks and naturally rusted iron was used for the railings and supporting structure. Inox fabric—a unique material which is weaved on a loom, creating an unusual mesh that alters in color depending on the direction of the sun’s rays—was sourced for the wrapping of the cocoon that encloses its guests in a symbiotic experience between man and nature. The Treehouse will seat 10 people and dinner will be served in one seating, at 9 p.m. Dishes include beetroot salad and foie gras; codfish Agioritikos with cream of plum and an onion broth, and risotto with fermented mussels, green apple, and mint.
