JUDGE & MENTOR
Nikos Karaflos is the Imagineer and CEO of Dexamenes Seaside Hotel, a place of meaningful luxury that changes the way we experience hospitality.
With a strong background in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as well as in Lighting and Multimedia, he believes in devising powerful ideas with cultural and social impact.
Early on, at the age of 18 he stood out with numerous distinctions such as a prize by the President of the Hellenic Republic and other awards and grants from Foundations for excelling in education. After finishing his studies, his passion about implementation of creative ideas in practical form led him to join the team of K-studio architects, where he held a managerial post until 2016. Right after, he brought one of his strongest visions to life: Dexamenes°°
Taking advantage of his previous academic and professional background and his experiences from his travels around the world, he created a New-Generation -already awarded- hotel that focuses on hospitality as an experience through art, wine, nature and local culture. Getting back to his homeland (where Dexamenes is based), he has transformed an ex-winery into a platform of hospitality, cultural activity and conscious wellbeing.
