Just five exquisite suites make up the heavenly Andronis Honeymoon in Fira Town, the charming cosmopolitan capital of Santorini.
Vast and unforgettable views take in the Aegean Sea and the island’s caldera from the hotel’s exclusive perch above a steep and spectacular cliff. The most magical sunset vantage point on the island is nearby, at Skaros Point. From this immaculately styled and abundantly private retreat – designed with honeymooners and romantics in mind — it’s easy to explore Santorini and absorb its unique vibe. Guests stroll quiet streets, dine at tucked-away cafes or loll in the Mediterranean sun in a setting that is considered one of the world’s most romantic. Andronis Honeymoon 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.
With monikers like “Absolute” and “Bliss,” it’s hard to go wrong when selecting a romantic respite at Andronis Honeymoon. The Absolute Suite was thoughtfully designed to go beyond guests’ wildest imaginings, with a king-size bed, spacious private balcony, outdoor Jacuzzi and unbelievable view of the Caldera Sea and the volcano. Bliss Suites are adorned with a private deck and Jacuzzi in full view of the caldera – and offer prime sunset moments. All suites seamlessly blend traditional architecture with modern touches, including satellite television, a CD-DVD player, a mini bar, WiFi and more.
Every detail is attended to with care and grace, starting with the concierge, who will gladly arrange island excursions at sea and on land, private dining, chartered helicopter flights, yacht trips and more. Guests are invited to share stories of their day at the Andronis Bar, a cozy spot for elegant cocktails, fresh juices and healthful and delicious dishes. Additional amenities include wedding coordination, use of the hotel’s laptop, with WiFi, reading and DVD libraries and business and laundry service.
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.
The Andronis Bar is a popular spot for cocktails and small plates. For more lavish, traditional dining, the hotel recommends several spots nearby, each within walking distance. Argo serves inspired seafood and Mediterranean cuisine, while Koukoumavlos is a favorite for its haute cuisine and heavenly views – and for its slow-cooked shoulder of lamb with coffee and fig sauce. V Lounge always draws in the cocktail crowd with its dreamy, romantic ambience and unobstructed Santorini sunset views. Andronis Honeymoon is also able to arrange cooking lessons – allowing guests to return home with a few tips and tricks for infusing their home cooking with a taste of their Greek getaway.
Andronis Honeymoon is located in Fira Town, 10 minutes from Santorini International Airport and 20 minutes from the port of Thiras.
