This indulgent hotel cascades gently down a cliffside, and offers signature service and effortless luxury.
White-washed houses gently tumble down the caldera cliffside at this exclusive hideaway in southern Oia. With one of the most spectacular settings on Santorini, different level terraces bask in gloriously open horizons and panoramic Aegean views from almost every angle. It’s understated yet exclusive – an effortless setting that’s simply made for a honeymoon or a high-end romantic getaway.
From the stylish infinity pool and oceanfront Asian Spa to the Cycladic-sculpted suites and villas and the wine cellar grotto, this luxurious hotel is undeniably indulgent. For dining, there are three superb restaurants to choose from, ranging from home-grown Greek cuisine right on the cliff-edge to a one-of-a-kind sushi experience and casual dining in a century-old mansion. If you fancy a more unique dining experience, there’s the option to dine in a number of private venues around the hotel – stay in your suite, choose a private terrace or head down to a secret wine cave that’s over 150 years old>
Linked by quaint cobbled pathways, there are just 41 stone-crafted suites and villas in the hotel. Inside, gentle curves blend with sculpted cave-like arches, and colours are muted to enhance the bright interior spaces. Handcrafted furnishings add to each room’s traditional style, and all include a secluded sun terrace overlooking panoramic sea and caldera views. Allure Suites have one of the most simple designs, with a spacious bedroom and indoor Jacuzzi bathtub – opt for a Wet Allure Suite with a Jacuzzi outside to relax in front of views overlooking the Aegean Sea. With one of the most relaxing interiors, the Spiritual Suites include a private fitness room and hydromassage bathtub, while the Secrecy Villas add to this exclusivity with a larger terrace and romantic plunge pool. For the ultimate in privacy, choose the Holistic Villa to stay in the most luxurious retreat in the hotel. This free-standing villa spoils for choice with an outdoor Jacuzzi and a private infinity pool.
