Mesaria, Santorini, Greece
What it is
A water-view jaw-dropper of artful rooms, a holistic spa, and three unforgettable restaurants (including a Vitamin Bar with fresh juices for Gwyneth Paltrow-types).
What it isn't
Open year-round. But we promise, it’s worth the wait.
What we think
If you’ve ever fantasized about combining the modern, high-design details of an urban hotel with the classic Cycladic architecture the island of Santorini is famous for, it would look something like this. Even the 250-square-foot starter guest rooms are fitted with a private balcony, rain shower, original artwork, and Santorini-inspired finishes like mosaic floors and custom wood furniture (not to mention an espresso machine, pillow menu and bath amenities from Greek luxury skincare brand Korres ). Bungalows come with an al fresco jacuzzi and pergola-shrouded garden; Pool Suites each have their own 193 square foot outdoor pool flanked by lounge chairs and a separate indoor living room. Stop in at the spa to indulge in the steam bath, sauna, and Korres Spa Treatments worthy of any Greecian royal.
You're here because
It’s a member of Design Hotels. Plus, the glimmering turquoise outdoor pool is nothing less than enormous—it feels like its own private Aegean Sea, and is reportedly the largest on the island.
You always love a European breakfast buffet, but this one is the best you’ve ever had—with sweet wild figs, a dizzying array of bread options (including round Koulouri rings) and tarts topped with what appear to be freshly-plucked berries. Bliss.
