Greek pop star Michalis Hatzigiannis, whose hit songs include “More than Beautiful” and “Kiss on the Breeze,” knows a thing or two about romance. He recently opened Alta Vista Honeymoon Suites, an intimate three-room resort that is tailored to provide a fairytale holiday for newlyweds on the island of Santorini. Perched on the edge of the island’s caldera, a flooded crater created more than 3,500 years ago, Alta Vista features stunning views of the Aegean Sea and combines traditional Cycladic style with modern comforts. The three suites, named Senses, Passion, and Love, all feature different and striking characteristics, giving couples a more unique experience: Senses opens directly to an infinity pool; Love is generous with space including a separate sitting room with fireplace; and Passion has a large canopied bed and private sundeck. Continuing with the romance theme, Alta Vista also has a large two-tiered space overlooking the caldera that is perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
