Istoria is one of the island’s newest additions in hospitality. Inspired by storytelling, its name derives from the Greek word “istoria” which means story.
The hotel’s 12 guestrooms — each with its own name in a different language which translates to the word “story” — are impressively arched towards the privacy of individual terraces, leading, in most cases, to private outdoor hot tubs and pools.
Istoria is located right on the seafront of the renowned Perivolos Beach – a 3km stretch of volcanic black sand in the pristine eastern side of Santorini that is still left undisturbed by the visiting crowds, just 10 km from Santorini’s port and 13 km from the airport.
The hotel’s design is an eclectic impression of Mediterranean influences. Rustic textures — as seen in the various terracotta, wood, and concrete elements — sit side-by-side with sleek, modern furnishings and accents that include marble-topped console tables and low hanging ceramic pendant lighting in guestrooms.
Open to the elements beneath canvas sails with stylishly rustic wooden tables and chairs set on the black sand, Istoria’s Mr. E Restaurant is home to Greek gastronomy reimagined.
Led by Chef Alexandros Tsiotinis, Mr. E serves modern Greek and Mediterranean cuisine created with fresh, seasonal ingredients and seafood garnered from the Aegean Sea.
