How did you come up with an idea to open Suites of the Gods?
I found this place 25 years ago. I really enjoyed coming here and just watch the view. The whole area is an old winery which was abandoned back then. This feeling from the first moment came over me, the respect of what has been created. A really unique place. At first I managed to own the old winery and I turned the building into a cave spa, preserving its form. The ambience and the divine feeling from this experience captured my own existence. I was trying to spend as much time as I could in this place. That’s how I got the idea of opening Suites of the Gods.
What kind of authentic experience your guests receive while staying in your hotel?
It is a unique experience staying into a cave. Imagine how rare is to stay in a cave that used to be a tank full of wine, combined with the stunning view of the caldera cliff next to the volcano over the sea! Enjoy the magical sunset of Santorini, swimming in the infinity pool, having a signature cocktail at your hand. What can beat that?
Traditional dishes are served in our restaurant, offering to our guest the opportunity to meet Santorinis’ exceptional flavors & wines.
We have managed to merge the old winery with the spa, crafting our Spa of the Gods. The only place in the world where you can have a therapy right next to your beloved one, inside a tank of wine. One hundred years old tools and machines which were used when the winery was operating are exhibited in every inch of this unique place.
Tell us the story behind the name Suites of the Gods!
Like I told you, this is a unique place. Every time I visited this area, I felt a divine feeling coming all over me. I thought that Gods should have been living here. So I decided to name the Suites from the names of the Greek Gods who lived in the mount Olympus. So, Suites of the Gods is the residence of the Gods and each suite is dedicated to each one of them!
