Lynda's review of the Mystique Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel
It is of so-called troglodytic architecture -i. e. it is dug into the rock and therefore, really impressive.
We had the chance to book for 2 nights last February (category 6 for a total of 120,000 points) just before the adjustments and added of a new points grid in March. It is now a Category 8.
We were received by Rafail at the front desk who made the effort to welcome us and explain the site in French and then take us to our room and introduce us to the features. Pretty cool.
I had of course applied for upgrade before we arrived, highlighting our Gold status and our 20th wedding anniversary. The charming Rafail explains to me that he doesn’t have a room with Jacuzzi to offer me, but he assures me that our room is really nice and that it has a large bay window which only 5 rooms of the complex have on 42.
He offers us, then in compensation, the breakfasts à la card for the 2 mornings, which I think is great. You can take anything you want, including champagne. Wow, it’s already beyond my expectations!
Finally, our room 26 is very well located, in the lower part of the complex, very intimate and directly in front of the caldera (impossible to have a more beautiful view), it’s breathtaking…. we are not quite recovering from it yet. The balcony perfectly complements this dream location.
Apart from the fact that you always have to go up or down the stairs (not a real problem unless you have a physical disability), this hotel is more than beautiful. Fortunately, the boys take care of our luggage as soon as they arrive, otherwise it would be perilous.
A few minutes after our installation, we receive a visit from another boy with a beautiful cake for our birthday, a bottle of Prosecco and bites of smoked salmon. The next afternoon, another gift offered, a kind of brownies with shooter …
It’s really very good and generous!
The beautiful swimming pool and breakfast area is very close to our room.
Of course, there is nothing missing from this dream place and although we don’t have a hot tub on the balcony, we have a hot tub inside that works very well (Actually, I really prefer breakfast to a hot tub…).
We therefore decide to make the most of this unique complex and not to leave the site (or almost) for a day to admire the spectacular beauty of the surrounding landscape. Everything is beautiful, whether it’s during the day or at sunset!
The city of Oia, which is famous for its wonderful sunset, is easily accessible within walking distance. Of course, there are several tourists who are there, but we manage to do well anyway and it’s really worth seeing!
I would have been happy to stay longer in this idyllic place that is the Mystique Hotel – a Luxury Collection Hotel – Santorini!
It was a wonderful stay that I will never forget.
If you have a lot of Bonvoy points or want to treat yourself to an unforgettable stay, the Mystique is a unique place that I highly recommend if you have the opportunity despite the high price in points. It’s quite an experience!
