Imagine a place of legendary beauty, where mythology comes to life in fiery sunsets and timeless charm, and enter the world of the fabulous Aigialos Hotel in Greece. Perched on the caldera's edge, overlooking the crystalline Aegean Sea around Santorini, this stunning hotel is a fusion of modern luxury and Cycladic style. Classic whitewashed architecture is bright and inviting, leading along spacious terraces and breathtaking views, into wonderfully cozy rooms and suites. Marble floors wind through open breezy spaces, with a tranquil atmosphere that instantly puts you at ease. Soak in your elegant marble tub, sink into plush beds each night, and stretch out under the sun, watching the waves lap against the picturesque volcanic coast. Escape from it all, to a world of tradition, grace and beauty, and find peace at the luxurious Aigialos Hotel.
For a delightful morning, take a dip the pool as you wake to the sounds of the surf below, and feel the warmth of the Mediterranean as the sun rises over Santorini. Immerse yourself in the island's beauty with a gorgeous hike from Fira to Oia, where views from Amoudi Bay will captivate you. Take in the fascinating history of Greece and the island on a visit to ancient Akrotiri, with buildings, art and astounding infrastructure that has stood since the 4th millennium BC. Continue on to the site of Thira to wander through the Agora and Temple of Apollo, then take in prehistoric, Hellenistic and Byzantine sculptures at the Archaeological Museum of Fira. Trek to the top of Mount Profitis Ilias, the island's highest point, and visit the monastery to gaze out over the scenery. Travel from the top of the island down to the very bottom with a scuba diving expedition inside vibrantly stunning caldera and along Nea and Palea Kameni, the two volcanic islands in the center. Fine cuisine and a memorable gastronomic experience await at the hotel, where a wide variety of inspired dishes combine local cuisine and ingredients with contemporary Mediterranean recipes.
