Semiramis’ guestrooms, poolside bungalows, penthouse studios and suite display an innovative mix of textures and materials: colored concrete with rubber floors, ceramic tiles with metal. From custom-made carpeting to glass partitions to rubber flooring, the décor offers a young, energetic and seductive alternative to more traditional approaches to luxury and style. Sitting in Karim’s swing chair and playing around with the translucent plastic artifacts or typing an electronic “Do not Disturb” message in the electronic message board is one sweet treat that discerning, modern travelers should not miss. To heighten the glossy experience, Karim has dispensed with the use of room numbers, identifying each guestroom with custom designed symbols.
Bathed in natural daylight, the 18 to 20 square meters’ rooms overlook the park of Kefalari. Karim Rashid lighted murals offer a pop of color to the all-white feeling of tranquility.
The pool bungalows, built independently from the main building, are right where the splashing action is. As they have direct access to the popular Semiramis pool, guests can choose to walk straight to their luxurious pool chairs. With a private terrace and garden on the other side of the bungalow, the desirable option of sunbathing in the two sunbeds provided is also available. The bungalows offer 30 square meters of Karim Rashid design, where guests can enjoy the latest hotel technology. The shower cabin is masterfully designed, overlooking the bungalows’ private garden.
Exquisitely arranged, the penthouse studios are spacious in their 45 square meters. Design furniture and artifacts give out a most pleasant vibe against a white background. Guests enjoy their own large private terrace, where Karim’s outdoor furniture offer comfort and style. As they lounge around, they can immerse in the amazing views afforded over the entire Attica region. With their plush bath tabs, the bathrooms have been designed strictly for indulging.
The penthouse suite offers more than a glimpse of the Karim Rashid design universe. Spacious in its 60 square meters, the suite showcases his signature style worked with humor and color. A glass partition separates the bedroom from the living area, multiplying the feeling of living in ample space. A large bathroom indulges with its plush bath tab. The private terrace, where Karim’s outdoor furniture create a coveted outdoor spot, offers unique views over the entire Attica region, from the slopes of mountain Penteli to the port of Pireaus.
