14 May Alta Vista Suites, a brand new romantic hideaway on the cliffs of Santorini
The exclusive three suite property is the latest in the Aqua Vista portfolio, a collection of exceptional accommodations in great locations across Santorini and Crete.
Perched high on the cliffs of Imerovigli, 3km from the island’s capital Fira, the hotel has glorious views of the Aegean and the volcano and belongs to Greek pop star and one time Eurovision song contest entrant Michalis Hatzigiannis.The styling and layout are strongly focused towards romance and Alta Vista is expected to prove extremely popular with honeymooners. The three suites, Passion, Senses and Love, each sit on their own level, giving guests complete privacy and seclusion. They are individually designed and furnished in a simple, elegant, Cycladic style and decorated with contemporary artefacts by international prominent designers, such as Patricia Urquiola and Jaime Hayon. All have expansive outdoor space with views out over the Caldera and there is also a beautiful pool and cave style eating area.Continuing the romance theme, Alta Vista’s 200 sq metre patio is a great spot for a wedding ceremony and reception, allowing couples to tie the knot in spectacular style. It can host up to 50 guests and is a very rare space in the often cramped and impossibly steep caldera cliff edge.
Alta Vista’s location at one end of Imerovigli means at night there is also a spectacular illuminated view of the village along the cliff edge.
