Inspired by the traditional Cycladic architecture that Santorini is known for, PEOPLE and Elastic Architects’ eco-conscious design honours the natural elements of the hotel’s landscape. Wood, stone, and volcanic, magma-black tones blend with minimal and sophisticated interiors, meanwhile the hotel architecture follows the curved formations of the lava-made slopes that surround it.

The resort shelters 59 luxurious guestrooms, including 24 suites, finished with cosy verandas, walk-in showers, relaxed living and dining spaces, as well as private pools, all of which provide unrestricted views of the island’s horizon. For the ultimate luxury experience, guests can retreat into the elegant Magma Suite, where they’ll find 828 square feet of space encompassing an expansive living area, king size bedroom, a private terrace and a pool that overlooks the beautiful azure waters of the ocean.
