The luxurious Magma Resort on Santorini is getting ready to open its doors this August as a member of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio following a franchise agreement between a Hyatt affiliate and Thera Island Suites S.A., owners of the resort.
The Magma Resort Santorini will be the first Hyatt-affiliated hotel in the Greek islands. The hotel will be operated by Athens-based SWOT Hospitality.
“The expansion of our luxury and independent collection brands in popular leisure destinations in Europe plays a central role in our growth strategy as we aim to satisfy the increasing leisure demand from travelers looking for story-worthy experiences,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president of development for EAME & SWA, Hyatt.
According to an announcement by Hyatt, Magma Resort Santorini will resemble a re-imagined traditional Cycladic dwelling by incorporating a sustainable yet modern exterior design that seamlessly integrates the lava-made and stone elements with the overall island’s ambience. All 59 guestrooms and suites, 46 of which will feature private pools and hot tubs, will enjoy unobstructed views of the Aegean Sea.
True to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand’s ethos, Magma Resort Santorini will offer one-of-a-kind, modern and personalized luxury guest experiences.
Nestled among traditional old vineyards, the resort will be located on the lava-made slopes of Vourvoulos, in close proximity to picturesque lava sand beaches on the northeast part of the island and popular cosmopolitan destinations such as Fira and Oia, known for its Instagram-worthy sunsets.
The resort’s culinary experience, Magma by Spondi, will be curated by executive chef Arnaud Bignon and honor local agriculture and seasonal ingredients in a contemporary and inventive interpretation. The restaurant’s menu will feature signature dishes and other fine dining options paired with renowned wines from the rich viticulture for which the island is known.
According to Hyatt, the Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand is a collection of truly distinctive properties, all with a different story to tell.
Once open, Magma Resort Santorini will become the ninth hotel in The Unbound Collection by Hyatt in Europe.
