A small, scenic staircase leads guests to the Andronis Boutique Hotel – an ideal start to a discreet and exclusive getaway.
Open seasonally April through October, the hotel’s enviable position has been carved from a crescent cliff on Santorini, facing the infinite blue expanse of the Aegean Sea, and near the volcano that shaped the island. Oia’s main pedestrian street is just out the front door, an inviting and traditional village awaiting exploration. The unwinding and disconnecting starts immediately in this serene atmosphere, where Mediterranean sun and light ocean breezes spirit one away, and world-class amenities make every moment unforgettable. Andronis Boutique Hotel is part of Andronis Exclusive, a collection of family-owned properties in Greece that blend local traditions and sublime surroundings with luxury facilities and personalized care.
The architecture of Andronis Boutique Hotel capitalizes on the hotel’s spectacular view points – multileveled suites built on cliff-side caves afford panoramic vistas of the caldera ledge. Several suite options are available; all offer a private Jacuzzi. The Petite and Classic Suites are in privileged locations facing the Aegean and are specially designed for couples. Elegant Suites are a bit more spacious, and truly raise the bar for sophistication and indulgence. For a step up, there is the Signature Suite, for up to three adults, and the Executive Suite with Plunge Pool and Prestige Suite with Infinity Pool, which hold up to four adults. These suites are awash in designer touches, whitewashed walls, built-in sofas and generous living spaces.
All suites boast satellite television, a CD player and wide selection of music, WiFi, bathrobes and slippers and luxurious toiletries. Guests have access to around-the-clock front desk and room service, cooking classes, wine tasting, concierge assistance, private butler service, spa treatments, use of sun chairs and towels at the pool, wine and fruit upon arrival, airport transfers and much more. For larger parties, the Andronis Boutique Hotel is available for exclusive use, complete with a team that will provide exceptional service and catering for private parties, dinners, cocktail receptions, brunches and weddings.
Depending on mood and taste, Santorini is ripe with activity, from the most sybaritic to adrenaline-pumping. Several boat cruises options are available, both semi-private and private, that take in the famous Red and White Beaches, Akrotiri Village, Venetian lighthouse and the volcanic isles of Palaia and Nea Kameni – where one can swim in the sulphurous waters of the hot springs. A traditional Greek meal and Santorinian wine are often included. Wine tours are available to local wineries to sample up to 15 different types and styles of wine and partake of local cheese and olives. Horseback riding, diving and snorkeling can also be arranged.
Lauda, the on-site restaurant at the Andronis Boutique Hotel, is one of the foremost eateries on Santorini. Guests may enjoy breakfast, light lunches and romantic dinners here, with spectacular views to complement traditional Greek dishes. The chefs have selected the island’s freshest ingredients, and have cultivated much of the produce in the hotel garden. Dietary preferences and restrictions are carefully attended to with specialized menus. And in the summer, the restaurant plays host to a gastronomy festival featuring acclaimed global Michelin star chefs and rising Greek chefs alike.
Andronis Boutique Hotel sits in the center of Oia village on the main pedestrian thoroughfare. The Santorini Airport and Athinios Port are 30 minutes away.
