While the Greek economy may be struggling, some of Greece’s most creative property development entrepreneurs are still enjoying success, albeit outside the country.
Miltos Kambourides and Pierre Charalambides are the co-founding partners of Dolphin Capital Investors (DCI) which was established in 2005 to develop luxury complexes at coastal resorts.
In the past decade the company has grown to be the largest seafront landowner in Greece and Cyprus and has expanded its activity in the eastern Mediterranean, the Caribbean and Latin America.
Its latest project involves a partnership with the luxury resort brand Aman, which has assigned DCI to develop a new property in the Dominican Republic.
Scheduled to open later this year, Amanera, as it is called, is one of the few golf-related resorts in the Caribbean that offers villas to purchase.
Apart from a 7,085-yard golf-course, premises include dining, spa and recreational facilities.
Vernacular architecture is present in the dwellings, featuring the use of natural materials, stone, tiles and Dominican artefacts.
Enjoying a stunning view of natural beauty, each villa, or casita, also has a flat, biodiverse roof to cultivate green gardens.
This luxury Hellenic-conceived hideaway appears to be a paradise on earth for those who can afford it.
