Wine-tasting at Lycabettus Restaurant
Undoubtedly one of Santorini's most sensational dinner settings, the heavenly hospitality at Andronis Luxury Suites' Lycabettus Restaurant doesn't stop at the Greek and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. While overlooking the cliff edge out to the dazzlingly blue Aegean, the resort's expert sommelier prepares a speciality wine-tasting and Greek food pairing for just one couple every evening. Pull up a seat at the famous cliff's royal table as your senses are allured by the aroma of tipples from vineyards in Santorini and beyond, matched with a menu of mouth-wateringly fresh fare, perfectly showcasing this stylish island's tastiest local produce.
Surrounded by unbelievably blue waters as far as the eye can see, seeing Santorini by boat is a must during your luxury holiday - and with Andronis, you can do it in spectacular style! Sail around the magnificent caldera aboard the well-equipped catamaran, stopping to eagerly explore popular sights and hidden gems including the rejuvenating hot springs. End your day at sea with a sumptuous onboard barbecue of glorious Greek food and free-flowing local wines as the sun begins to set, the perfect end to a perfect day.
Heavenly Hiking from Andronis Arcadia to Fira
Leading you along the caldera cliff and through villages including Fira and Oia, the hike from Andronis Arcadia to the Fira is one of the island's most popular - and most scenic - walking trails. Comprising approximately six miles of pathways, cobblestone inclines and dusty tracks, although sometimes challenging, this worthwhile walk not only puts you at the island's wild heart, but also frames breathtaking views of the surrounding coast. Catch your breath with a refreshing drink in the picturesque village of Imerovigli along the way, and make sure to carry your camera for photographs of the Mylos windmill and beautiful blue-domed churches.
Water Path Wonder at Evexia Spa
Channelling a connection with the island through the use of local herbs and oils, Andronis Arcadia's Evexia Spa is a private sanctuary, perfect for unwinding. Their unique 'water path' treatment - set in the outdoor pool with panoramic views - begins with a deep lymph-drainage massage, followed by the application of refreshingly chilled Cyro bandages. You'll also experience the hot and cold therapy of the Kneipp pools, along with harmonious herbal teas to drain the body and detox from inside out - you'll be left feeling like a Greek god or goddess!
