After Athens and Kos, a third Hilton hotel is about to open in Greece, this time in Crete, by Dolphin Capital Investors (DCI) as the group appears poised to kick off a series of multifaceted investments worth a total of more than 1 billion euros in five destinations across the country between 2014 and 2016.

Sources told Kathimerini that DCI has already reached an agreement for the construction at Sitia, eastern Crete, of a Waldorf Astoria hotel, which constitutes the highest quality hotel chain of the group of Hilton Hotels and Resorts. DCI will undertake the hotels operation of the hotel, while construction is expected to begin next year.

DCI is also close to sealing another deal in the coming months by acquiring a stake in Asian chain Aman Resorts, which controls 25 hotels around the world including one operated by DCI at Kranidi, in the eastern Peloponnese. The next Aman Resorts hotel is planned for Kea in the Cyclades.

In the summer, DCI will also start operating the first Nikki Beach hotel at Porto Heli, near Kranidi, and plans opening a Chedi hotel in Kranidi and one more unit in Viotia, central Greece, in association with Indian group Oberoi Hotels and Resorts.
