Private Villa Experiences ­

Santorini's secret hideaway, Mystique is located in Oia, a Cycladic town which showcases the island's unique influence of history, landscape and distinct architectural language. A sanctuary of nature, Oia is also a magnet for Greece's finest culinary traditions - this matched with the plethora of volcanic wineries make it the ideal location for those seeking a thorough introduction to the area's rich epicurean history.

The hotel - frequently named in Condé Nast Traveller's Readers' Choice Awards and voted number one among the top 20 hotels in Greece and Turkey (2018) - is designed using Cycladic architecture, where gentle curves and sculpted arches blend with a muted colour palette and light enhancing spaces.

Linked by a network of cobbled pathways, Mystique's 41 Suites and Villas, two swimming pools, rejuvenating Elios Spa, state-of-the-art gym, all feature panoramic sea views across to the active volcano that has shaped this exceptional island and are finely tuned to the desires of today's modern explorers.

In acknowledgement of the evolving needs of the modern traveller, who is prioritising space and seclusion, Mystique's ultra-luxury Villas are sensitively designed to delight guests with the natural beauty of the Caldera Cliffs with generous indoor and outdoor living space, replete with the unparalleled services and amenities of the hotel.

The Villas - Secrecy, Holistic and Mystery - all offer barefoot luxury and are versatile for different travellers, including honeymooners, multi-generational family trips and more. Health conscious guests might opt for Secrecy or Mystery, which come complete with a private fitness room. Elsewhere in Holistic, honeymooners will enjoy the private outdoor jacuzzi and thoughtful use of outdoor space for al fresco dining. A full immersion into the laid-back Santorini lifestyle awaits, as guests step out for a morning swim in their private swimming pool and take in panoramic views of the shimmering Mediterranean waters.

Offering unparalleled privacy and seclusion, pampering is taken to a transcendent level with guests able to book intimate candlelit dinners in the privacy of the Villa's outdoor terraces. Other round-the-clock services are also available in-room, including organic treatments from the hotel's Elios Spa, in the safety of one's own private refuge.

Safe distancing and hygiene practices are all firmly in place in a discreet manner, bringing guests a luxury holiday experience in spectacular natural surroundings.
