Noūs Santorini: Infusing Cycladic History with Contemporary Twists
Opening in early summer 2022, Noūs Santorini will be dedicated to redefining luxury, with private bungalows with pools, social outdoor spaces, organic dining options, and a vast wellness center will define the sprawling property.
Discover a 5-star luxury resort hotel with unique character and world-class interior design and exterior landscape, blending Santorini’s history with contemporary flair. A move away from mass and speed, towards space, experiences, connections, and slowness.
One of the island’s largest retreats, Noūs Santorini will provide ample public and private spaces, while blending Santorini’s history with contemporary flair. Lush gardens will give way to nested bungalows that simultaneously mimic the slope of the landscape and reflect the staggered structures that abound in traditional Cycladic architecture. Raw natural materials like willow and volcanic stone—to be used in everything from window shutters to claustra to lighting fixtures—will further mirror the surrounding environment. The hotel will also feature three food and beverage options, with a focus on local, organic cuisine and wines.
Noūs Santorini Spa
At the Noūs Santorini Spa and the nearby organic vitamin bar, the guiding principles of Ef Zin (the Greek principle of well-being) will establish an ethos of holistic self-care. Dedicated to the principles of ‘Ef Zin’ (Eυ Zην, the Greek principle of ‘well-being’), this destination radiates a holistic approach to self-care. Here you will absorb the benefits of spa treatments using superior natural products that offer the therapeutic qualities of gifts of the earth. Expert therapists will help guests set off on their personal journey. Spa highlights include 5 treatment rooms including one couples’ treatment room with a private outdoor jacuzzi, Korres Spa Treatments, indoor/outdoor pool, steam bath, cold tank, and a sauna.
As with all YES! Hotels Group properties and art will also play a key role, both visibly and behind the scenes. A number of young Greek contemporary artists will create site-specific works for the property, while the landscaping will take inspiration from ancient wall paintings in the nearby village of Akrotiri.
The prehistoric frescoes depict rivers and subtropical landscapes; at Noūs Santorini, such scenes will be brought to life in an array of xeric grasses, a Nerium grove, an herb garden, and more.
