Starwood gives Mystique luxury tag

Starwood has announced its latest addition to The Luxury Collection, the
exclusive Mystique hotel, located in Santorini, Greece. The hotel,
perched high on the cliffs of Oia is expected to open its doors in May
2007. With its luminous sunsets, Santorini is considered by many to be
one of the most spectacular of the Greek islands. Featuring 18 villas,
carved into the cliff, with panoramic private terraces, the rooms
combine tradition with modern conveniences: handcrafted furniture, flat
screen televisions, wireless internet connections and CD players with
surround sound.  Guests will luxuriate in the villa’s whirlpool bathtubs
and enjoy aromatherapy and private massages. Mystique’s amenities
include an outdoor infinity pool at the cliff’s edge, the poolside Aura
terrace bar and the Secret wine cave, a dramatic wine cellar serving
rare and indigenous vintages. At Charisma, the gourmet restaurant, the
chef uses only the freshest ingredients to season with a regional
flavour.  Guests seeking an intimate and dramatic setting for their
nuptials can arrange to use the hotel’s own chapel.
