Yannis & Nikos Orfanakis

From Humble Beginnings to Hotelier Excellence: The Remarkable Journey of the Twin Brothers, Ioannis & Nikos Orfanakis.

In May 1961, under the Mediterranean sun, two bright stars were born into a humble family in a small, tight-knit community. These twin brothers, whose names would soon become synonymous with luxury and hospitality, had a destiny that would set them on a remarkable journey.

Growing up, life was far from extravagant for the twins. Their family struggled to make ends meet, and as soon as they were old enough, the brothers found themselves working on construction sites, their young hands bearing the weight of bricks and dreams yet to be realized. The trials and tribulations of their early years instilled in them an unwavering work ethic and a burning ambition.

As they transitioned into adulthood, their lives took an unexpected turn when they delved into the world of fashion. The brothers quickly became known for their impeccable taste and an innate understanding of aesthetics. Their foray into fashion introduced them to a world of luxury and elegance, igniting a passion for creating beauty that would stay with them throughout their lives.

In 1991, with their newfound business acumen and a deep desire to create something extraordinary, the brothers ventured into the hospitality industry. They opened their first hotel, a modest yet charming establishment that would lay the foundation for their future success. With each passing year, their hospitality ventures continued to flourish, marked by a commitment to providing unparalleled experiences for their guests. The second hotel, inaugurated in 2015, was a testament to their dedication to quality and innovation.

However, their most significant achievement was yet to come. In 2021, they unveiled Acro Suites, a masterpiece that seamlessly merged their fashion sensibilities with their passion for hospitality. Nestled in a breathtaking location, Acro Suites was an embodiment of luxury and serenity. The world took notice, and it quickly earned a reputation as a premier destination for those seeking an opulent retreat.

In 2023, with an unwavering vision and the desire to expand their horizons, the twin brothers founded Omicron Hotels. This marked the beginning of a new chapter, one that would see their reach expand even further, with a promise to redefine luxury hospitality.

The story of these twin brothers is a testament to the power of ambition, hard work, and the pursuit of excellence. From their modest beginnings to becoming renowned hoteliers and creators of extraordinary experiences, their journey continues to inspire and uplift, reminding us all that dreams can indeed be realized, even against the most challenging odds.

Danae and Konstantina Orfanaki

Danae and Konstantina Orfanaki are two sisters who grew up in Crete. From the moment they were born, they were immersed in the world of hospitality. Their family owned a small family-run hotel in Hersonissos, a well-known summer destination in Crete. From a young age, they had contact with guests from all around the world, delving into the world of hospitality and becoming acquainted with the English language and a blend of foreign cultures.

Once they both finished high school, their paths diverged. Danae, while in high school, took architectural design lessons and initially aimed to enter a school of interior design, but her plans eventually changed, leading her onto the path of Economics. After her graduation, her passion for travel led her to move to Spain to study hospitality management so she could work in any hotel worldwide. This is how she found her first job in Miami a year later, initially as a front office agent and later as a concierge in one of the most prestigious hotels there. After a year of working and exploring the USA, she decided to return to the island to take over their family business.

Danae delved into the world of fitness and yoga at a young age, and with time, it became a part of her daily life. The combination of her passion for well-being, architecture, and the lack of suitable facilities in Crete motivated her to put all her passion into this project and create something that was missing from the island—a wellness destination.

From a very young age, Konstantina was a gymnastics athlete for nearly 10 years. Throughout her journey in this sport, she cultivated an interest that led her to study wellness, nutrition, and health science. After her university graduation, she moved to the United Kingdom to work at a luxury hotel spa, where she decided to dive deeper into the world of hospitality. She continued with her postgraduate studies in hospitality management and then moved to California. She always wanted to create a space where all her passions could converge, and her lifestyle could contribute to her business endeavors. Her love for wellness, holistic health, gastronomy, art, and interior design (she holds an interior design diploma from Istituto Marangoni in London) motivated her to bring all her knowledge to the table.

While both sisters were away, their parents expanded their activities, leading to the creation of the ‘Seaside A Lifestyle Resort,’ the family’s second hotel in Agia Pelagia, Crete. When both sisters returned from the USA, they decided to collaborate with their family to advance in creating “Acro Suites” , bringing their knowledge and experience back to their roots. They spent nearly 4 years planning, building, and creating Acro. They put their hearts into it as a family to create something unique, something different from anything that had ever existed on the island. They wanted to incorporate Cretan hospitality into a project that could breathe life into their experience in hospitality, gastronomy, and holistic well-being. As a result, Acro was created as an environmentally friendly destination to encourage the preservation of local culture and the recovery of knowledge and values to promote the protection of the natural environment.
