“Most beautiful place in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Hands down the most beautiful place i've traveled too, and i went to 6 different countries on this same trip. The food is fresh, the views are breathtaking and the people are so friendly. The hotel is carved into the side of the mountain and so unique. I want to go back for my honeymoon.

We were picked up at the airport for transfer to the Mystique Hotel (transfer is included in room price) The hotel is on the side of a hill with about 20 steps down. The two bellmen carried all of our bags to our room on their backs and with a smile on their faces! We were impressed!
Our room and every room for that matter has a spectacular view of the sea!
The staff was delightful...they definitely spoiled us through our 3 night stay. We enjoyed the restaurant for two wonderful dinners and a hearty breakfast every morning. Our complements to the chef and restaurant staff...also the bartender makes a great Bloody Mary!
They have a lovely spa, where we had a massage and my thanks to Balu for a relaxing time!
We would recommend this hotel to our family and friends!
Thank you again for a exceptional experience!

Room Tip: Fabulous views from every room...all the suites are different and we loved our room!

Mystique has very unique location on the island. Walking distant to the market and close to the feature churches. Every room has an unlimited view from its windows. Cave suites are great and specially designed with tastes. It is exactly as clean and new as what you see from their website!

We had our private wedding ceremony at the hotel. From reservation to making arranging for the cake and photographer, the reception staff are very helpful and provided everything we asked for in a professional manner!

For dinning venue, we first planned to try something in the local neighborhood but then found that it's really not our tastes...so we tried their Charisma restaurant and is quite good and you can enjoy wine tasting in their wine cave or you can enjoy candle light dinner there. I would say it's value for the price, especially to a Luxury Collection hotel.

We loved staying at the Mystique. We were on the final stop of our honeymoon and the staff definitely spoiled us. Anything we asked for they provided us. The two women that worked in the separate office were amazing (I can't remember their names now). The hotel is in walking distance of a great market area and sunset viewing spot. We highly recommend renting some form of transportation (we rented a quad) and seeing the whole island. There are so many beautiful spots on the island. My only disappointment in the hotel was the quality of food in the restaurant for the price. We walked down to the market place after our first meal at the hotel. If you like blander food then you would love the restaurant food, but we liked the much more flavorful food down the street. We love the outdoor hot tubs, but wished we were able to control the temperature of the water, it got a little too cool at night and too warm during the day. Other than those few minor things we loved the hotel!

I spent 3 nights with Mystique as a part of my island hoping experience. First of all, the price tag per night was outrages, i paid around $1300 USD and was little disappointed when i first walked into my room. A hot tub that didn't even worked and lack of 5 stars amenities. Not to mention, the pool was around 20 feet long and 4 feet high, i'm better off soaking in my own hot tub which didn't even work. Besides that, exclusive property, friendly staff, prime location and walking out of your cave into the view every morning is worth dying for. There are other hotels in oia with the same view with a cheaper ticket price, do some research before booking would be wise if you are looking to save a buck or two.

I would personally like to thank you for taking the time to write your feedback in Trip Advisor about your recent visit to Mystique.

Your valued comments and suggestions are important for us to improve our performance and ensure that all our guests leave having experienced the true Mystique experience.

I was happy to learn that you find the property, location, staff and cave architecture prime and spectacular as well as most areas of our service. This is indeed great encouragements in our objective to continuously improve our performance and thoroughly delight our guests.

Please rest assured that I have discussed this with my all parties involved, and measures are being taken in order to meet all our guests’ expectations.

You can often say more with less, so I'll keep this brief. Suffice to say that staying at Mystique is what heaven must be like! The management have achieved that ever elusive desire of travellers; top service, top food, top accommodations and the views (words can't describe them). Without doubt one of the greatest hotels I've ever stayed in.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from an extremely relaxing week at Mystique. The hotel is well appointed and manages to balance modern fixtures and fittings with the traditional look of the surrounding houses. We stayed in an Allure Suite (an upgrade from the one we booked) and were very pleased of the upgrade as the room wasn’t huge. Having said that it was very comfortable and with views to die for. All the staff were very friendly and in fact were probably the thing that made the holiday as relaxing as it was due to nothing being too much trouble. The location is very good for exploring the gorgeous town of Oia which has some excellent restaurants and bars to enjoy the sunset at. As I see some people have already mentioned, the steps are pretty steep, but there are people to carry your bags so it’s no real difficulty. Overall we had a fantastic time and should be return to Santorini, I have no doubt we will stay at Mystique again.
