This hotel features plenty of activities and watersports from wild waterskiing excursions to peaceful canoeing amongst the islets.


The Mystique resort is in a simply dazzling location, clinging perilously to the volcanic cliffs of Santorini. This luxury resort in Greece is so exclusive that it is reserved for only the most discerning of travellers, with just 25 available suites. All of the suites face the turquoise hued water of the Adriatic coast, but it is the two Spiritual Suites and their adjoining Spa Rooms, which make a holiday in Greece just a little more luxurious. These private rooms feature their own Jacuzzi, treadmill, fitness machine and a relaxing spa bed. For all guests, when the sun sets, visit the secret underground caves for a spot of wine-tasting; sampling the rare and indigenous wines of this region.


Greece’s luxury resort of Kirini overlooks the volcanic islands of the Caldera Basin, and it is the remarkable spa facilities which put this resort firmly in the top five. The spa has a steam room, Jacuzzi, indoor pool and jet showers and guests can choose from a list of various spa treatments which are on offer.

Lighter meals can be enjoyed by the hotel’s pool whilst enjoying the cool island breeze, and relaxing atmosphere which has earned this resort is accolade.
