Hand-crafted and meticulously designed, its cavernous interior is characterized by clean lines and a muted colour palette, creating an oasis of calm featuring sleek custom-made furnishings and natural materials. Paired with ambient lighting across the property, the result is a celebration of simplicity and serenity where there is no limit to one’s imagination or possibility. Recently recognised by the World Luxury Hotel Awards as the “Best Luxury Design Boutique Hotel” in the world, Kivotos Santorini is more than a destination, it is a place where memories are made, and dreams come to life.
