Description & Location

Istoria Hotel Santorini is a new luxurious addition to our Santorini selection. The name Istoria is inspired by the Greek word meaning storytelling.

Located on the renowned  Perivolos Beach, a 3km stretch of volcanic ink-black sand leading down to the midnight blue waters of the Aegean on the relatively quieter southeastern side of the island . 20 minutes drive for the airport. 15 minutes from the lively capital, Thira .

Istoria is under the same experienced management team as Vedema and Mystique. Istoria is a proud member of Design Hotels.


Istoria Hotel has 12 guest rooms, split into 6 different styles.

All are sea facing and are Junior Style with integrated living space. Each guest room has been named after storytelling in 6 languages.

You have a choice of :

Saga Suites. 38Sqm. Taken from the Icelandic word Saga, meaning storytelling, located on the upper (first floor). Three Suites

Recit Suites. 38sqm.  From the French word, similar features to above but located on the ground floor. Three Suites

Tarina Suites. 37sqm. Taken from the Finnish word for storytelling, slightly smaller interior living space but with outside plunge pool. Ground Floor. Three Suites

Rakonto Suite. 45sqm. In Esperanto, Rakonto is storytelling. Elevated on the hotels 2nd floor, with some of the best views, with two terraces.

Conte Suite. 40sqm. Catalan influenced and named, located on the first floor with good beach views.

Storia Suite. 50sqm. From the Italian word, the most exclusive and expensive accommodation, with generous in and out living space on the 2nd floor.

Facilities and Activities

Beach front restaurant specialising in innovative Mediterranean cuisine with the emphasis on seasonal vegetables and of course fish straight from the sea
Attractive Swimming pool
Exclusive area on Perivolos Beach with sunbeds
Asian Influenced spa
A Shuttle operates to the Vedema hotel, 10 minutes away in the traditional  village of Mesalohori where you have dining options
Eco activities such as horse back riding and mountain treks can be arranged through concierge as well as visits to local vineyards . Santorini wine is some of the most acclaimed and award winning , with the volcanic soil producing a quite unique strong fruity taste .


Istoria Hotel Santorini delivers a simple and rather chic Greek elegance.

The design feature is deliberately rustic Santorini with a real sense of destination, yet with supreme comfort.

Istoria Hotel Santorini is essentially couples /romance focused. As a result, children under 14 years are not accepted .

We think the combination with Mystique, located in the jet set Oia area, with its incredible views  restaurants and boutique shopping, would make a holiday of real contrast and romance.
