Boutique Luxury at an Intimate All-Suite Hotel: Astarte on Santorini
Santorini, Greece, is home to Astarte, an all-suite getaway set on an island paradise where, as the hosts tell us, “the sea and the sky meet in perfect harmony to make your dreams come true.” Yes, it’s small, even tiny: only 9 rooms in a complex designed by Aygoustis Krousis, perched on a cliff. This intimate size makes it perfect for romantic getaways — and the pampering you’ll experience here will make for a trip you’ll never forget. As the architect says, “Magic is in the details at Astarte Suites, beginning with the twinkling Swarovski stones that adorn the ceiling above each suite’s Jacuzzi pool, ending with the personalized service each guest enjoys.” Beautiful colors surround you in your suite: soft tones of salmon, lavender, periwinkle blue, and warm sunny gold create a soothing, welcoming ambience of bliss.
Your view is unfettered, blue, crisp, clean: the turquoise infinity pool seems to be one with the Aegean Sea beneath you. And there’s lots to see on Santorini as well. Visit Akrotiri, an ancient buried city preserved by volcanic ash — “the Pompeii of the Greek Islands.” Or, venture out to Red Beach and White Beach, considered top spots for “fun in the sun.” When you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy a light snack and drink at the Morning Star pool bar, or order Astarte’s discreet room service for dinner on your balcony. At the end of a long day, have one last refreshing swim beneath the stars, or a lingering soak among the bubbles, then tuck yourself beneath the soft, white covers for rest unlike any you may have had for years. All of this, and more, awaits you…at Astarte.
