The hotel scene in Santorini, Greece, is about to get hotter, as Santo Collection moves in with new boutique resorts. Here’s what we know about the properties launched in April and May of 2023…
Santo Collection is raising the temperature in Santorini, Greece, this year. Its anticipated arrivals include 20 new suites inside the existing five-star boutique resort, Santo Pure , and the launch of The Villas by Santo Collection, two new independent four-bedroom luxury villas that can be combined to create an impressive eight-bedroom villa sleeping 16 guests.
Santo Mine is a new all-suite luxury hideaway carved into the cliffs of Oia on the site of an old stone mine above the enchanting Ammoudi Bay. With direct views over the Aegean Sea, all new 37 individual suites come with a private pool or jacuzzi, and have taken inspiration from Santorini’s rugged landscape, calming earth tones, Mediterranean aesthetics, and Cycladic minimalism. The resort brings guests at one with the island’s natural surroundings and Santorini’s famous sunsets and will also include a new restaurant and all-day bar, wine cellar serving local and international wines, spa, and outdoor gym.
Meanwhile, The Villas by Santo Collection, the two new properties making their mark this year, are matched in style – we have been told that it will be link ‘stepping into the world of refined luxury’.
Located in the western part of Oia, the villas are nestled in a secluded setting of awe-inspiring natural beauty with panoramic views overlooking the Aegean Sea. The four-bedroom villas are interconnected and can be combined to create an 1,195 squar metre (including outdoor areas) eight-bedroom luxury villa accommodating up to 16 guests.
Both villas embrace an outdoor living concept with outdoor and indoor kitchens and BBQ areas, indoor and outdoor jacuzzi, outdoor swimming pools, fitness rooms, saunas, a butler’s room, large verandas, outdoor seating areas, and up to 389 square metres of landscaped gardens in a prime elevated position perched on a cliff, offering views of the neighbouring Greek islands, and Santorini’s magical sunsets.
The new arrivals will add further layers to the sustainable-minded hotel brand’s personality, which prides itself on sheltering luxury hospitality – and high quality design – with a passionate Greek soul. Its properties in Santorini, put simply, represent the authenticity of the island and reflect an elegant, yet exciting, experience.
