Honeymoon
New to Sovereign

  • An award-winning, 5-star luxury hotel with superb gastronomy and wellness
  • This adults-orientated hotel is the ideal place for romance, privacy and relaxation
  • Suites and villas are centred around five sumptuous pools, giving the resort a village feel
  • Stupendous sea and sunset views from dawn to dusk
Embrace a relaxed and boho-chic lifestyle at Santo Maris. This upscale, adults-only resort and spa embodies the magic that makes Santorini such a coveted destination, year after year. 

The hotel is spectacular. Set between sunshine and coastline, the dominating feeling is relaxed elegance here - think ubiquitous whitewashed walls, cycladic-style domed roofs, stone floors, comfy furniture and neutral tones to set the mood. 63 stylish suites and two sumptuous villas are set out in clusters around five lovely pools. This layout gives Santo Maris the feeling of a traditional Santorini village.

Laid-back ambience is the name of the game here, yet everything is spectacularly high-end. This goes from the exteriors of bleached white and black volcanic stone, the five pretty pools to the immensely high ceilings and the industrial iron staircase that leads to the resort’s cosy bar. The sense of elegance and space throughout is not only limited to the public areas - rooms are both luxurious and spacious and expertly designed with personal touches. 

The award-winning restaurant Alios Ilios serves melt-in-the-mouth Mediterranean fusion food using local, seasonal ingredients such as fava beans, figs, lentils, tomatoes and artichokes. But don’t just take our word for it. The restaurant was voted one of the best in Greece and holds the heady title of “Best Greek Cuisine Award 2019 & 2021.” Breakfast is taken on the terrace, overlooking the Aegean.

Santo Maris is Santorini living at its finest - extensive sea views from almost everywhere in the resort are ideal for drinking in those famous Santorini views. And come dusk, there is simply no better or more exclusive space to watch the island’s celebrated sun set into the limpid sea below.  Whether you’re on your honeymoon or simply looking for a relaxing break, you’ll find everything you need at Santos Maris.

Child Policy: Please note Santo Maris only accepts guests of 12 years and above.

Bars & Restaurants

Alios Ilios

Santo Maris’ restaurant, Alios Ilios, is a culinary experience. Kickstart your day with the Greek breakfast, where you’ll enjoy traditional recipes made with signature products, as well as platters of fresh fruit and plenty of coffee. Come evening, you’re in for a treat. The restaurant has twice gained the “Best Greek Cuisine Award”, and it’s no surprise why; both the a la carte and pairing menu offer out-of-this-world taste, contemporary cuisine plus an exquisite range of desserts. Choose from superbly creative dishes such as Lemonato with raw fish, lemongrass and coriander or try the trahanas, one of the world’s oldest foods. The restaurant name means “the sun that rises and falls in the sea”, so expect extraordinary views, from dawn to dusk. 

Akratos Poolside Bar

Located by the main infinity pool and offering those stunning views is the Akratos Poolside Bar. Whether you want a light bite at lunch, an afternoon snack or a pre-dinner signature cocktail, the bar is the place to be. Whatever the time of day, relax in the mellow vibe and melt into those delicious sea-to-sky views.

Pools

Santo Maris’ unique “village” concept is centred around its five pools, each named after the groups of islands in Greece. The main infinity pool, adjacent to the poolside bar offers incredible sea views, perfect for gazing at while sipping your signature cocktail. Located nearby, the Cyclades pool is another infinity pool while the three others - two pools in the Dodekanissa village and the Sporades pool complete the effect. If you do want to leave the resort, then the little beach of Ammoudhi, is a simple haven of white sand and crystal clear waters, only about a 20-minute walk away. 

Spa and Wellness

Anassa

If you still feel in need of more profound relaxation, then Santo Maris’ pretty spa, Anassa, is one of Santorini’s best. The spa has been awarded Greece’s ‘Best Resort Spa’ at the World Spa Awards™ for four years running, so guests here know they are really getting top-tier treatments. Be welcomed into the space by the talented therapists who will soothe both body and mind with one of their five exclusive treatments. There is also a Spa Suite for couples’ massage, an indoor heated swimming pool, a steam bath, cryotherapy and a sauna. A well-equipped fitness room plus private yoga lessons are available upon request. 

About the location
If there is one Greek island that inspires romance, adventure and awe, it is Santorini. Famous for its blue domes and breathless sunsets, the island is picture perfect. As destinations go, Santorini is very easy on the eye. 

Santos Maris is found just 350 metres from the village of Oia (pronounced Ia), in the southwest of the island. Oia is home to that famous Santorini view - we’re sure you know the one we mean - where the famous Cycladic roofs cascade down the island's volcanic slopes to land in the turquoise sea below. So famous is the view that night after night people gather to watch the magical sunset (said to be the most beautiful in Greece) and gaze as the sun dips below the horizon. 

Because of the island’s reputation as a summer playground for the rich and famous, the island harbours some of the best gastronomy in Greece. Expect stellar dining options, surprisingly good local wine and great nightlife. Venture a little further off the beaten track, and you will find traditional tavernas and secluded spots away from the well-heeled masses.

If you hanker for something other than endless views, labyrinthine streets, romantic sunsets and Michelin-starred restaurants, relative seclusion can be found at the island's ancient sites and on hiking trails in the island’s volcanic hinterland. Curious holidaymakers might also like to head over to the east side of the island. This side of Santorini is ideal if you want to recline on volcanic-sand beaches - which range in hues from charcoal-black to flame-red. Or why not head inland to Oia’s 15th-century castle and then take the 300 steps down to Ammoudhi beach? We recommend cooling off in the clear Aegean waters before calling a cab back!
