Vacation at the Mystique Hotel in Santorini, Greece
A trip to Greece is the vacation people dream about. The luxury destination boasts a multitude of ancient ruins, historic attractions, beaches, museums, wineries, and culinary experiences. But the most magnificent Greek locale is actually a grouping of islands in the Aegean Sea, nearly 120 miles from the mainland: beautiful Santorini.
A romantic Santorini vacation
A few thousand years ago, one of the largest volcanic eruption in our planet’s history formed the caldera now called Santorini. As legend has it, that eruption brought the demise of the city of Atlantis. Today, the Santorini islands are one of the most luxurious vacation locales in the world. Crystal blue waters, rugged cliffs, and white and blue architecture combine to become some of the most recognizable images of Greece on postcards and in travel magazines. In fact, many travel photography websites give step by step instructions on where, when, and how to replicate these iconic pictures.
Oia is best known for its quintessential Santorini views. This quaint coastal town sits on the northwestern tip of Santorini’s biggest island. Along with the picturesque cliff side homes, blue-domed churches, and luxury hotels, Oia has numerous art galleries, charming shops, and one of the best views of the sunset in all of Europe. Indeed, every Greek vacation should include a visit to this luxury destination.
Mystique Hotel sits above the blue waters of the Aegean Sea, nestled in the cliff side of Oia. Built in 2007, this exclusive getaway is a wonderful representation of the Cycladic architecture so prevalent on Santorini. Considered one of the best hotels in Santorini, Mystique Hotel specializes in romantic vacations for couples. In fact, to guard their peaceful atmosphere, there are no accommodations for children under the age of 14. Additionally, the hotel is only open from April to October, making a stay at the luxury property even more coveted and special.
Notably, this magnificent hotel is part of The Luxury Collection. Formed in 1906, The Luxury Collection includes more than one hundred high end hotels in forty-one countries around the world. Moreover, these amazing properties routinely rank among the best hotels in the world by travel magazines and organizations.
Mystique Hotel has forty suites and villas connected by a series of meandering paths. The suites are available in five styles including Vibrant, Allure, Wet Allure, Spiritual Suite & Spa, and All 2 Senses. However, one of the three villas is the clear choice if you are looking to indulge on your vacation. Although it has more than 700 square feet, Secrecy is the smallest villa at Mystique Hotel. The large private terrace, outdoor jacuzzi, and plunge pool encourage guests outdoors to enjoy the phenomenal view of the sea. In addition, Secrecy has a private fitness studio complete with a treadmill, cycle, power plate, spa bed, and weights. The stand-alone Mystery villa boasts an unsurpassed view of the Caldera, Aegean Sea, and Santorini volcano. The infinity pool is the perfect place to laze the day away. Also, this luxury villa has its own private fitness studio.
While Mystique Hotel caters to romance, the Holistic villa acknowledges how much fun a friend-filled vacation can be. This 1020 square foot, free-standing villa can accommodate four adults. Sitting atop the highest point at Mystique, this magnificent space has two cave-style master retreats, each with its own en suite. Additionally, the large infinity pool with jacuzzi are sure to enhance your stay.
Charisma Restaurant, the primary eatery at this exclusive getaway, has a casual atmosphere. Guests will feast on classic Mediterranean fare made with local ingredients while enjoying the open air and ocean views. Asea Restaurant and Lounge is only open for four hours every night. However, with its exceptional Japanese sushi/Greek fusion, it is worth fitting a visit into the schedule. Located in a century old mansion, Captain’s Lounge offers a relaxed menu of breakfast, lunch, and snacks.
Oenophiles will enjoy a visit to Secret Wine Cave, a 150 year old wine cellar that excels at creating small bites designed to enhance the carefully curated wines. Also, this intimate space is available for private candlelight dinners. Guests relaxing by the pool can take part of the refreshing menu of snacks, smoothies, tea, and cocktails at Aura Bar. Of course, Mystique Hotel can also arrange for a private dining experience within the comfort of your suite, villa, or even under the night sky.
At Asian Spa Resort, the practitioners place great importance on the balance of nature and man. As such, the extensive spa menu includes a variety of facials, body treatments, targeted treatments, exfoliations, and wraps designed to enhance that harmony. Asian Spa Resort even has a treatment to care for your body after a day basking in the sun.
