Santorini’s new hotels
Another summer season begins for the famous “island of the volcano
” and many and exciting new options in terms of accommodation are available. Just outside of Imerovigli, on the road to Oia, the “Andronis Concept
” is a luxury resort dedicated to wellness. It boasts a large (1,000sq. m.) spa; nutritionists and consultants are at the disposal of guests; the restaurant uses many raw materials sourced from the hotel’s large farm, and the views of the Caldera are unparalleled. The “Villa Bordeaux
” –a much-discussed arrival even before it opened– is located in the heart of Fira and consists of just four highly-luxurious suites and the gourmet restaurant “La Colline” where Chef Jerome Coustillas marries the classic French cuisine with Greek elements. The four villas of the “Azar Villas
” afford stunning views of the Pori beach and will delight modern design enthusiasts and those who want a temporary “summerhouse” in Santorini. If again you prefer to be closer to Oia, the “Aperanto Suites
” in the area of Finikia is a brand new luxury compound with thirteen suites in the Cycladic architectural style and dominated by white-and-blue colour schemes. Also in Oia, the “Fileria Suites
”, after a top-to-toe renovation, shows its new, very charming face, combining modern elements and relaxing colors. The “Ayoba” (www.ayobasantorini.com) is another new option, with a value-for-money philosophy. It consists of six houses in Imerovigli and features a shared Jacuzzi.
