Istoria, A Member of Design Hotels 5

With just 12 suites and Cycladic-meets contemporary architecture, the Istoria is a refreshingly refined boutique design hotel in Santorini.

Just a few steps from Perivolos Beach you find the graceful Istoria Hotel, one of the finest boutique properties in eastern Santorini. Of the many things to love about this hotel, the décor and design must take special mention, as a traditional Greek façade of whitewash walls and curved lines, exposed stonework and native potted cacti blends masterfully with designer sofas, handmade ornaments and woven wares. The result is an intimate space that’s authentic, exclusive and luxurious, showcasing the very best of Santorini style, as urban touches meet locally-inspired design throughout.

    Description, Services & Facilities

    It is hard to find a truly unique hotel in Santorini, given that there are so many fantastic luxury resorts on the island, yet the Istoria has managed just that – a real sense of imagination and absolute quality in one. With so few suites to its name, the service is personal, and time spent around the resort grounds always feels relaxed. The food served at Istoria Restaurant is a cutting-edge, fine dining delight of immaculate presentation and skilful flavour fusions, with each plate taking its ingredients from the hotel’s organic kitchen-garden, and inspiration from wider Greek cuisine. Wraps, massages and facials, aromatherapy treatments and holistic relaxation therapies are there to be indulged at the onsite spa, which is a true sanctuary in itself; an ideal start to the day before taking the couple of steps to a private sunbed on Perivolos Beach. And when it comes to your accommodation, each suite is entirely individual, beautifully adorned and crafted to create an evocative space akin to ancient mountain dwellings – though one filled with comforts and countless mod-cons, some with a Jacuzzi and others a private pool, of course.
