Friday's Escape: The Mystique Oia, Greece

HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYONE! This week has been a very busy and exciting one. I am thoroughly in need of a vacay and since I can't jet off at the moment, a visualization is in order. I came across the ultra-luxurious Mystique in Santorini. Perfect location for a destination wedding. I was telling a friend of my dream vision for a wedding and Oia seems as if it was tailor made.

"Situated on Oia’s famous cliffs, the stylish Mystique features dazzling views of clear blue equatorial waters, the volcano, and the Aegean Caldera. Surrounded by some of the world’s most beautiful scenery, our resort’s island-style design pays homage to nature in a climate of unabashed luxury. Our ideal location is just 18 kilometers from Santorini Airport and 20 kilometers from Athinios Port.

18 suites and villas are spread across more than 2,000 square meters, providing a sensorial experience in surroundings of understated elegance. All accommodations are lovingly handcrafted from wood, local stone, and glass with enticing patterns carved into the walls. Antique textiles and plump, luxurious towels will wrap you in their warmth and comfort.

Spend the day beneath the clear blue sky in our outdoor infinity-edge pool. Slatted wooden decks that lead to the plunge pool are surrounded by sun beds for the utmost relaxation. Gather together for a casual drink or delicious meal at the Aura pool bar, the Charisma gourmet restaurant, or Secret wine cave.

Mystique is a natural, exclusive retreat reserved for only the most discerning of travelers."
The hotel is built into the cliffs...
Stunning whitewashed exterior echoes the famous Greek architecture.
I am such a water baby, this infinity pool is incredible!
A moonlit dip after the ceremony festivities, lovely
Cool white and cream interiors, ideal after an afternoon in the sun
That view is just dreamy...
Enjoy your weekend!

thanks for taking me back to Santorini! We said our vows over those very same whitewashed walls just three years ago!
