Rock-hewn retreat where the suites come with private Jacuzzis and the restaurant hovers over the Aegean Sea
Perched on the edge of a cliff at Santorini’s westernmost point, Andronis Luxury Suites is a glamorous place for a blissed-out break. The 22-suite hotel combines traditional Aegean architecture with modern, minimalist design. Outside, Santorini's ubiquitous white is offset by occasional flashes of blue and dramatic red, while indoors the suites and spa are all based on traditional cave design. In an area renowned for romance and luxury, this resort is right at the top, in every sense of the word.
Bed and Bath
The award-winning suites cling to the side of a steep cliff, high above Santorini’s spectacular caldera (the remains of a devastating volcanic eruption 3,600 years ago). Spacious and serene, the rooms range from the 344-square-foot Premier Suite with Jacuzzi to the 860-square-foot Pool Suite, which comes with its own private infinity pool. The suites all have a simple, elegant cave design, and they all feature private balconies to make the most of the exquisite views.
In accord with the hotel’s organic philosophy, the treatments at the heavenly Mare et Sanus Spa use natural, local ingredients. Local is also the crucial word at the fine dining restaurant, where traditional Greek cuisine and global recipes are brought together with a deft and delicate touch. Food may be a highlight at the Andronis, but to make it even more special, the place to enjoy it is under the stars, on the Lycabettus. Named after a hill in Athens, this dramatic rocky outcrop juts right out over the water, in one of the most romantic restaurant settings in the world.
In the Area
Take the long walk from the hotel down to the tiny port of Ammoudi (a stairway of 300 steps below Oia) for a seafood dinner right on the water at Sunset Fish Tavern. Just be prepared for the climb back to the top. It’s probably the most popular thing to do on Santorini, but witnessing a sunset at the very tip of Oia is a must for first-time visitors. Scores of people often gather for this magical daily spectacle, so get there early to bag a good spot under the windmill. Or take a boat trip along the caldera cliffs and see the island from a totally different angle. Santorini’s a good wine-growing island; taste a local drop at Art Space Gallery and Winery, which dates from 1861, in the village of Exo Gonia.
