Sited on the Caldera volcanic rocks of Santorini's Oia, the Saint Hotel is a modern ode to local Cycladic architecture. The complex combines existing buildings along with new constructions to create a complex that includes a reception area, 16 suites, and a spa. Guests enter the property from the village at the top of the hillside. Its geometric forms flow down the slope toward the sea, following the contours of the terrain. Tucked into the landscape, each room is a minimalist haven from the harsh sun with sculpted interiors and a clean aesthetic. A central staircase connects the network of cave-like rooms to a common pool area and a spa. Oriented towed the southwest, the entire resort is afforded expansive views of the Mediterranean Sea and the volcano in the distance.
