An authentic slice of Greek history has been artistically updated to create a rare hospitality experience. At Coco-Mat Eco Residences Serifos, one-time miners quarters have been reimagined and reworked into roomy two-story apartments, presenting a confluence of history, space, and design unlike anything one is likely to encounter on the Greek Islands. Set on a lush, sandy beach along the Aegean shores of Serifos, Coco-Mat takes luxury to an expansive new level. The spacious apartments have been crafted with an eye toward unifying nature, simplicity, and elegance. Recently renovated, the beachfront Coco-Mat not only stands out for its welcoming mindset but through its respect for traditional local architecture and contemporary sustainable practices. Here, authentic Cycladic design merges with an unadorned industrial order and sophisticated eco-friendly construction that define a unique new style.

Kostas Maltezos spent 15 years as the GM of Coco-Mat, a global brand of natural sleeping products, working in Amsterdam, Shanghai, and Athens. In 2012, with a vision to spread the essence of original Greek hospitality worldwide, he created Coco-Mat Hotels n’ Resorts. In 2013, inspired by the unique combination of Serifos’ silver rocks, the Aegean Sea, and the Mediterranean sun, he created Coco-Mat Eco Residences, an off-the-beaten-path environment that celebrates his love for the hotel’s Vagia Beach setting. “I cannot forget the sound of the waves the first time we slept there,” says Maltezos, who studied European culture and loves literature. “It was like both a lullaby and good company, and the sound woke us sweetly the next morning.”
With its rugged landscape and old mining sites, Serifos offers its own distinct Cycladic flair. Despite its rather arid climate and windblown look, Serifos is enwrapped in the warm colors of the Aegean Sea and its soothing breezes.
