The company first appeared in Greece in 2013, when it bought “Asteras” Vouliagmeni for about 600 million euros.
The investment project for Ano Mera concerns the construction of a hotel unit with a capacity of 192 beds with accompanying sports facilities, health rooms (spa), swimming pool, cable car, outdoor theater, shops, kids club, Greek cafe, tavern, restaurants, small boats of 300 sq.m., etc., in an area of 60,324 acres, which in fact does not yet have road access.

The connection of the rooms with each other, but also with the other spaces (restaurants, etc.), will be similar to that of Chora of Mykonos, that is, it will be done through small alleys, made of stone slabs, through which they will pass, pedestrians and small electric vehicles, while a larger road will end up in the marina.
The total area consists of 13 smaller consecutive and adjacent plots, for which in the third ten days of 2018 a pre-sale agreement was signed with AGC Equity Partners.
The plan follows the existing traditional constraints of construction and coverage of Mykonos and the whole complex can not exceed 7,921 sq.m. in construction and 5,281 sq.m. in coverage (maximum allowable coverage 10%). Only 2-storey buildings are allowed and their height cannot exceed 7.5 m for two-storey buildings and 4.5 m for single-storey buildings.
The coastline of the area includes two sandy beaches, one is 40-50 m long and 4-6 m wide and the other is 40-70 m long and 16-20 m wide.
There is also an internal network for pedestrians, and there will be small electric vehicles to serve both customers and employees of the complex.
The investment aims to create a comprehensive tourist complex of high quality and aesthetics, perfectly harmonized with the very natural and man-made characteristics of Mykonos, which will upgrade the island and will be a model for future investments. At the same time, it will provide its visitors with all those amenities and services that are considered ideal for guests with high economic and social levels.
