Carved into the rugged Caldera cliffs, Mystique, a Luxury Collection Hotel, overlooks the turquoise expanse of the Aegean Sea that encircles the island of Santorini. Designed following Cycladic architecture, where gentle curves and sculpted arches blend with a muted color palette and light enhancing spaces, the hotel is a secluded hideaway that offers gloriously open horizons, in a stunning and legendary location, placed just 18km from Santorini airport.
Such a unique setting provides a tranquil and discreet quality that defines the hotel’s character. A favored destination for honeymoons and romantic escapes, Mystique emanates a carefree spirit, imparting an understated, exclusive feel, so reminiscent of the spectacular location.
Linked by a network of cobbled pathways, all 39 suites and villas boast panoramic sea views across to the active volcano that has shaped this exceptional island. Designed to generate space and light into each guest room, the interiors are a combination of traditional regional charm, with a contemporary twist and up-to-the-minute technology. Furnishings are an exploration of natural untamed materials, providing an interesting contrast against the textured walls and linen fabrics that add an air of elegant simplicity.
Interconnecting walkways pave the way to the hotel’s unique facilities, including the two swimming pools, where guests can enjoy a signature cocktail from the Aura Bar or sample rare wines, stored in the 150-year-old Secret Wine Cave. Inspired dining options using authentic, Greek-influenced cuisine, made with locally sourced produce are available whether guests choose to eat al fresco, in the privacy of their own terrace or at one of the three restaurants, each with their own individual character. Mystique is home to Asea, an artisan Japanese restaurant offering fresh sushi with a Mediterranean flourish, while Captain’s Lounge, occupying the original site of a century-old mansion, caters for all day casual dining. Fine dining at Charisma, with panoramic ocean views, offers the freshest Greek-inspired cuisine in a truly memorable setting.
Organic and regionally derived, the therapeutic ingredients used in the hotel’s Asian Spa provide signature treatments for whole body relaxation rituals. For guests looking to stay active, the state-of-the-art gym, features Technogym equipment, CrossFit accessories and captivating views of the volcano and Aegean Sea.
Mystique is an exclusive hideaway in a natural world, that perfectly lends itself to wider exploration, offering guests a tantalizing insight into the captivating island of Santorini and its unique traditions, romance and wild beauty.
