Located on the fringe of Santorini’s most famous village, picture-postcard Oia on the island's northwestern tip, this super stylish, haute living resort boasts a buzzy beach club vibrancy which centres around the magnificent infinity pool with its floating daybeds and sunken bar. Contemporary, white-washed, luxe villas and suites hug the Caldera hillside, all with views towards the Aegean Sea. What's more, the poolside bar is one of the best sunset spots on the island! Space is a rarity on Santorini but this cool, hip-chic resort has space and privacy in abundance. Couples and families alike are welcome. Andronis Arcadia enjoys the best of both worlds on this iconic Greek isle - close enough to walk to the centre of Oia when you go in search of a blue dome, but far enough away to avoid the sunset crowds! Santorini is a mystical, dramatic island and it cast its spell on the hotel’s visionary owner, Mr Miltiadis Andronis, who fell in love with its captivating allure from the first moment he visited. Everyone you meet on the island's steep Caldera slopes, visitor or local, has a story to tell. Miltiadis is no different. One of the best hair stylists in Greece in his day, he was spellbound by this extraordinary island and dared to dream about creating a stunning, awe-inspiring Cycladic retreat to honour Santorini's unique, natural beauty. Andronis Arcadia is the realisation of that dream.
There are 118 suites and villas, each with a private plunge pool, with enchanting sea and sunset views. Greek white-wash, clean lines and modern art punctuate the spaces and walls. Andronis is chic, with a haute hideaway style. Each suite and villa is an elegant, minimalist living space, with earthy colours. For families and friends, there are Family Suites, Two Bedroom Suites, Three and Four Bedroom Villas and the sublime, three-storey, six bedroom Eden Villa with its two private pools and a fitness centre. The newest accommodation, the serene Natura and Oasis Suites, all come complete with a private pool, a private verandah and mesmerising sea views.
The Pacman Sunset Restaurant offers boho-chic alfresco dining by the pool and is unquestionably the best spot on the island for a sundowner! Delicious Mediterranean delicacies and sushi are on the menu. Andronis Arcadia is also home to the island’s first trendy Beefbar, a concept originally created by Riccardo Giraudi in Monte Carlo. Overlooking the Aegean, the delectable Beefbar menu balances the Greek summer heat with light, tasty, small plate dishes inspired by popular street food recipes from around the world. Think tuna ceviche with coconut and crunchy lobster tacos with Satay sauce.
Guests are also encouraged to venture into nearby Oia to enjoy the alfresco cliffside restaurants located within the Andronis sister properties - the superb menu at 'Lauda' is big on local seafood, whilst 'Lycabettus' serves succulent lobster, chicken and wagyu, perched on the caldera cliffside in what is undoubtedly one of the most scenic dining spots in the whole of Santorini.
The infinity pool is the buzzing centrepiece but below this, the vast Grande Pool also radiates a vibrant Beach Club vibe. There is a Kids Club and a relaxing Spa where you can indulge in pampering facials, massages, body wraps as well as a water therapy experience with the hot and cold L-shaped Kneipp pools.
A Santorini 'must' is the energetic, zig-zag walk to nearby Ammoudi Bay, located at the bottom of a steep, cliffside walk, down 300 steps to this quaint former fishing village. It is filled with gorgeously rustic fish tavernas, with one of Santorini's best swimming spots hidden behind the bay. It's a magical place, oozing romance and charm, with colourful houses lapped by turquoise blue sea.
