Each guest will appreciate any of the rooms, but it is the villas that are the most sought after.  After all, no one can resist the spacious living area, dining area, bedrooms, and elegant bathrooms complete with shower and bathtub.  The bathrooms are as large as the rest of the villa, and with the bathtub being completely separate, anyone can take a long soak at any time they wish without being interrupted.

It is the swimming pools that will delight many of the guests and it is usually one of the first places that everyone ventures to once they have checked into their beautiful rooms.  Vans are available to those who do not wish to walk, but many guests love the idea of exploring the resort as they wander around. The streets are painted in whites and blues, to create a look that is authentic Santorini, which means there is no need to travel to Greece to experience that same adventure.

Once at the swimming pools, guests are encouraged to lounge around and be waited on by the fantastic staff or they can enter the water for a swim before receiving the royal treatment.  Beverages and cocktails are always available at the bar near the pool and special requests are welcomed.
