When it comes to summer getaway spots, few locations in the world can compete with the beauty and appeal of Santorini. And if you’ve decided to head to Greece for the upcoming holiday season, the Kivotos Hotel & Villas must make it to your list of must-visit stays.
Located along the gorgeous landscape of Caldera of Imerovigli, Kivotos Santorini boasts five different varieties of suites, and resembles modern art with its contemporary silhouette. “If white is the statement of neutrality, then black is the one of unconstrained desire, the declaration of longing to absorb all the flavors of life without regrets,” explain the Michopoulos family—the founders of the property—and architect Haris Michael. “It is the color of the volcanic lava that carved this island, confirming in the most experiential of ways that deconstruction comes first, in order to create something sublime.”
Take a step closer to the hotel and you’ll notice that it faces the Castle of Skaros, meaning that its location is among the most covetable on the island. The dark facade of this property hides of jewels of luxury that promise a vacation like no other, from its unique suites and villas, to a communal pool, and Mavro, a restaurant that prides itself in offering its visitors an unforgettable gastronomic experience. The main aim of the rustic property is to treat its guests to an experience that will long remain in their collection of best life moments.
Ranging from 40sqm to 350 sqm, the suites and villas at Kivotos Santorini aren’t just memorable for their sleek, calming interiors. These nature-inspired rooms, which bring together an interesting combination of ebony and charcoal interiors alongside pops of lighting in bold blues and reds, also stand out for their special features, including private pools and jacuzzis. The explosion-like slits in the walls of these rooms, along with the alternative use of colors within each space, bring in a thematic twist. Add to that luxurious beds that seem to float in mid-air and Sonos audio systems, and you’ve got yourself a haven you won’t want to leave anytime soon.
