A room at Mystique in Santorini, Greece



Dramatically built into a cliff face in the arts village of Oia on the island of Santorini, Mystique is a quintessential Greek paradise. Each of the suites opens onto a sea-facing stone terrace with its own daybed, while exclusive villas feature al fresco dining areas, outdoor Jacuzzis and more. Pampering extras add to the elegant ambience, from a gorgeous infinity pool and spa treatments to a 150-year-old wine cave and fine dining right on the edge of the caldera. This is exactly the sort of sanctuary that inspires one to hide away from the world, but if going out appeals, Santorini's wealth of attractions includes archaeological excavations, black sand beaches and sunset cruises.
