The Opera of Santorini, where the first opera of the New Greek State was performed, will open its doors in spring 2017 as the Opera Mansion, a luxury suite by Aqua Vista Hotels.
Aqua Vista Hotels group’s experienced executives and specialists managed to preserve the mansion’s glorious past while bringing it into the 21st century. The group took on the full scale renovation of the emblematic Opera of Santorini, which dates back to the 18th century.
The layout of the 120 m² Opera Mansion was planned with a great deal of care in order to preserve the overall character of the “cave” shaped building. Alcoves were transformed into functional spaces, while the natural structure allowed for the design of an indoor pool. Even the old underground water tank was given a new lease of life as it has been transformed into a wine cellar where guests may enjoy a fine dining experience in the venue’s dining corner. The characteristic white of the Cyclades prevails while orange and brown touches were added to contrast beautifully with the island’s volcanic elements.
Situated in the heart of Santorini on Fira’s caldera path, the Opera Mansion is in the perfect location for couples who seek for a romantic getaway, where all of their expectations are met by concierge services, discreetly offered by Aqua Vista Hotels.
Paying the utmost respect to the original character and historical significance of the building, the legacy of the mansion is retained in its name and its logo, which features a palm tree, that can also be seen in the original entrance.
“Total respect was given to the historical significance of the building and every measure was taken to ensure that it retained its unique character,” said Sofia Matzourani, Business Development Manager of Aqua Vista Hotels. “We are particularly pleased to have entered into this new collaboration as it was a unique challenge, which Aqua Vista Hotels handled with great success.”
Managed by executives who have a great deal of experience in the hotel and tourism industry, all of whom possess a passion for the hospitality sector, Aqua Vista Hotels is involved in the creation and curation of hotels with a unique identity. Handling everything from architectural aspects to the interior design, the group is also responsible for the overall concept of the experience offered, as well as managing the bookings and the day to day functioning of all departments.
A hotel with a healthy and profitable operation, first class amenities and facilities and the creation of an unforgettable guest experience are all factors which define the objectives of Aqua Vista Hotels when embarking on any venture or collaboration.
