On an island simply made for romance, famed for its striking sunsets and incredible views of the deep, blue Aegean Sea, striking simplicity is how one would describe Vedema Resort in Santorini, a string of 45 suites and villas melting indistinctly into the little medieval village of Megalohori.
Dazzling whitewashed buildings are topped by distinctive cupolas, interspersed with the blackest lava cobblestone paths and stairways. All suites and villas come with stone floors and unique silk screen paintings from well known local artists but the ten pool suites with their fresh minimal design inspired by the simple island lodges, offer barefoot chic living that you'll be reluctant to leave.
Dining here is a delight with The Vinsanto Gastronomic restaurant, a 400 year old winery offers romantic torch lit evenings accompanied by superb modern Mediterranean cuisine. For that very special evening, enjoy the sensual environs of the beautiful private dining room, Prive. Discuss your menu in advance with the chef; select your wine from the extensive winery dating back to the 15th Century, and finish with caviar and a fine Cuban cigar at Monty's Club.
Take the daily shuttle to the private beach, unwind by the pool and relax body and soul with yoga and holistic treatments at the Spa, located in an enchanting wine cellar and designed in whitewashed, its minimalist Cycladic-style, makes it a place where serenity pervades and you can indulge in therapeutic massages, facials and body treatments soothe with ancient methods and ensure guests leave fully rejuvenated. With a Luxury Collection Concierge on-hand to help organise the day's activities - ranging from island cruises, access to scuba diving, snorkelling, wine tours and archaeological exploration - every day can bring new discoveries. By day, soak up the sun in the private black-sand beach, in the evening, arrange a romantic dinner for two on your terrace.
