Designed as an idyllic Cycladic island village, with elegant and spacious communal areas, from the reception area and lobby to the open picturesque alleys connecting our stunning suites – at Santo Maris finding your own island of calm is guaranteed.
Spread across five suite neighbourhoods over an area of 32,000 m2, Santo Maris is all about spaciousness and privacy. With 5 outdoor swimming pools to choose from (all with enhanced water recirculation and filtration, and enhanced protocols to ensure social distancing in the pool) guests can relax, safe in the knowledge that every detail has been arranged for their maximum comfort and safety. The new arrangements include poolside furniture settings to ensure a minimum of 2m distance between each sunbed/umbrella set.
This ‘safety first’ philosophy runs through every aspect of Santo Maris’s operations – including food and beverage – with al-fresco dining choices at our main restaurant Alios Ilios and our all-day Akratos Poolside Bar. Airy, light-filled suites and gorgeous private villas – all with personal verandas, feature private pools and/or heated outdoor jacuzzis.
As stipulated by the Greek Government’s newly introduced safety protocols for all hotels in Greece following the Covid pandemic, this summer will see low occupancy operations at Santo Maris ensuring appropriate social distancing can be seamlessly maintained throughout the resort at all times.
All aspects of Santo Maris’ hospitality offerings have been creatively adapted to meet the requirements of new safety standards without affecting our renowned customer service experience.
Guests can enjoy a ‘contactless’ experience whether it be checking in or checking out, and in relation to our fine dining options via room service, or in our specially adapted restaurants. Whether al-fresco dining, lunching by the pool, candle-lit private dining in your suite or enjoying your favourite cocktail while marvelling at the Santorini sunset, our kitchen and serving protocols are further enhanced to ensure the maximum food safety.
One of the largest award-winning spa and well-ness centres in Santorini, Anassa Spa completes the picture, and complies with all newly introduced operating standards, offering tailored services and treatments in these pristine conditions. The Santo Maris fitness center may also be accessed for private sessions by appointment.
