The Enticing Dark Side of Santorini

The Enticing Dark Side of Santorini

While Santorini is a highly sought after summer island destination, only the most discerning travelers venture beyond its white-washed buildings and blue-domed rooftops to find their way to Kivotos Santorini, a hidden gem designed for those who dare to explore the island’s primordial soul. Here’s a glimpse into the secrets that lie within:

Architecture that Transcends Boundaries

Perched high above the Aegean Sea on Santorini’s caldera, Kivotos Santorini is a testament to innovation and boldness. Conceived as a love letter to the island's volcanic landscape, the hotel’s unconventional, all-black architecture defies Santorini’s all-white vernacular. Black, the absorption of all colours in the visible spectrum, is symbolic of desire and encapsulates the hotel's mission - to create cherished moments that will inspire guests to celebrate connection amidst ethereal luxuriance.

Conceived as a wondrous world of immersive and soothing comfort, every detail of the hotel’s hand-crafted cavernous interiors has been designed to enrich guest experience. From the unique balconies and window layouts to the custom-made furnishings and fabrics and state-of-the-art lighting systems that allow guests to set the mood of their choice, each and every aspect serves to further enhance the immersive quality of the luxury accommodations.

Unparalleled Views

Santorini is renowned for its breathtaking sunsets and sea views, yet most travellers find themselves navigating bustling crowds only to get a glimpse through the sea of tourists. Kivotos Santorini provides an exclusive escape where guests can savour unobstructed panoramic views throughout the season – a rare find on the popular island!

As the sun dips into the sea, guests are invited to partake in a sunset ritual. A seductive spectacle paying homage to the sun’s primal powers through a contemporary dance performance providing a one-of-a-kind experience.

All-sensory fine dining

This season Kivotos presents an all-new gastronomy experience at its renowned signature restaurant MAVRO. Under the creative direction of acclaimed Chef Dimitris Katrivesis, guests embark on a heavenly adventure with three locally sourced and globally inspired tasting menus inspired by the moon’s phases and the hotel’s all-black design.

Drawing from the concept of “Tradinovation”, a culinary nexus where tradition meets innovation, Chef Katrivesis skilfully combines local ingredients, traditional recipes, ancient cooking techniques, modern flavour profiles and his global culinary experiences. The result is a symphony of carefully crafted sharing plates that boldly celebrate the culinary heritage of the Cyclades.

Come for the views, stay for the experience at Kivotos Santorini, a sublime hidden oasis sure to transform every moment into an unforgettable memory.
