Carved into the cliffs of Imerovigli, on the western side of Santorini, Pegasus Suites & Spa is an exclusive enclave of whitewashed accommodations with hypnotizing views of the Aegean Sea.
Built in traditional Cycladic style – with curvy white walls, bright pops of blue, and sun-drenched terraces cascading down the cliff face – the hotel is seamlessly woven into the island’s peculiar geography. All the same, it is a beautiful example of how Santorini’s striking vernacular architecture can take modern forms while still preserving the local identity.
Each one more delightful than the other, Pegasus’ cave-like suites come in a variety of sizes, styles, and levels of sophistication to meet just about any taste out there.
Even the standard units have private furnished balconies gazing across the volcano, beds dressed in luxurious linens, personal notebooks, and an invaluable sense of calm running throughout. These types of suites are decked out in contemporary minimalist design, with tasteful built-in furnishings and a subdued palette of grays and whites.
Bathrooms, no matter how small or big, are strikingly decorated with Venetian stucco and glass mosaics, and boast fabulous walk-in rain showers, while in-room amenities cover everything from plush bathrobes and flat-screen TVs to fully stocked minibars.
The Honeymoon and Junior Suites bring the outdoors in with their chic whitewashed terraces, alfresco heated Jacuzzis overlooking the sea, and bright, playful details in typical Santorini blue.
A sparkling fresh water plunge pool meanders through the stylish Executive Suite, while the Deluxe one comes with the added benefit of a soothing indoor Jacuzzi.
The sleek Angels Suite allows swimming with a view, thanks to its infinity-edge pool facing the epic caldera, and the sumptuous Grand Luxury Suite wraps guests in contemporary Cycladic style decor and supreme comfort, offering a fabulous indoor pool with Jacuzzi, along with the same unforgettable Aegean views.
In addition to breakfast, which is a complimentary buffet affair with both local and international options, fine wines and traditional Greek cuisine with a creative twist await guests at Pegasus Suites & Spa.
To make the most of the mesmerizing caldera views, the hotel’s stylish restaurant opens onto a panoramic terrace for alfresco candlelit dining under the stars. Romantic private dinners, wine tasting sessions, and Greek cooking classes can also be arranged upon request.
For further pampering and relaxation head to the hotel’s chic Heaven Spa, where an indoor heated pool with Jacuzzi takes center stage.
A varied selection of treatments and therapies are available to soothe your body and soul, and so is a well-equipped fitness center, where you can keep up with your workout routine.
