A Night at… Andronis Arcadia

A thousand years ago, a great volcano erupted leaving Santorini with its crescent moon shape. Through generations it has remained one of the most enchanting and staggeringly beautiful islands in the world. Andronis is a family of luxury hotels, villas and honeymoon retreats situated in Athens and in the heart of Santorini. 

There are five properties on the island and they are without doubt the jewels in Andronis’ crown. On the romantic coast of Imerovigil is the Andronis Concept Wellness Resort. In the picturesque town of Oia, there is the Alta Mare suites by Andronis, the Andronis Boutique Hotel which has been carved into the crescent cliff and offers views of the Aegean from every suite. Finally there is the newest addition to the family, the mesmerising Andronis Arcadia.

With its name it pays homage to the home of gods and goddesses in Greek Mythology. Arcadia was a place of natural harmony and pastoral enchantment and this is in the heart and soul of the property. However it is the elegant Andronis Luxury Suites which is built amongst the dramatic jigsaw of houses and is certain to steal your heart. Situated in the center of Oia, on the doorstep of its many restaurants and shops but far enough to ensure absolute privacy and peace. 

Andronis Luxury Suites is a whitewashed paradise, which is contrasted against the deep cobalt blue of the Aegean. It boasts 33 award-winning luxury suites and villas with private infinity pools, magnificent cave pools and heated hot tubs.

There is an opulent 60m2 open-plan Honeymoon suite with an incredible outdoor hot tub and two terraces with breathtaking views of the Aegean sea and the enchanting caldera. At dusk when the houses around you light up like fireflies, it is the perfect place to capture those magical Santorini sunsets.

For those seeking absolute privacy there is the spectacular Sunset Villa Socrates on Milostufili Hill which is a stone’s throw from the main building. It has some of the best views of the caldera and the volcano on the island. This romantic Cycladic-style villa for two boasts an open terrace with a heated private infinity pool and a spacious bedroom, living area and bathroom.

Dining at Lycabettus at Andronis Luxury Suites may be one of the culinary highlights of your life. It is one of the most beautiful and intimate restaurants in the world, from above it looks like it is floating above the sea. This al fresco restaurant could not be more romantic even when dinner is served under a blanket of stars.

Highlights on the menu include the decadent lobster with scallops, zucchini and lobster bouillon. There is also an unforgettable wagyu with celeriac pomme souffle, black truffle in a rich sauce. For dessert opt for the Millefeuille with caramelized apple, tea ice cream and vanilla or the Smoked Chocolate with honey, grue de cacao and a touch of pepper.

The Andronis family is guided by the Greek term ‘Philoxenia’ which translates to ‘friend to the stranger’. This is reflected in their devoted service, expect to be welcomed like family from the moment you arrive.

There is a myth that runs deep through the island, that it was once blessed by the gods. Thanks to Andronis, who have ensured we can all still experience a piece of heaven on earth.
