Twenty-four suites and villas in six categories are really spacious – this is the big advantage of being away from the caldera, where space is at a premium. All rooms are sunset facing with full or partial sea views, and have heated pools or plunge pools, and terraces. Beds are king-sized and there are iPod docks, Nespresso machines and complimentary wine and fruit upon arrival – nice extras including sunhats and fans. Colours are earthy and cupboards are faced with woven rattan. Bathrooms have rain showers and Italian Acqua di Parma toiletries – some villas have in-room Villeroy and Bosch bathtubs. Best for privacy (and families) are the two-bedroom villas with vast courtyards (planted with fragrant trees and plants), surrounding raised pools with wet beds.

Breakfast is served on the infinity pool terrace or to the room for no extra charge. It’s a fixed menu (inspired by different regions of Greece) that changes daily: my breakfast, inspired by the Epirus region, included Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, local jams and pastries, moist feta and leek pie, an omelette with smoked Metsovo cheese and halva (a semolina pudding) with cranberries and pistachio. Elements restaurant has two tasting menus or an à la carte option. It’s worth ordering the tasting menu to try the chef’s inventive cuisine. Chef Tasos Stefatos offers up lots of theatre – nitrogen clouds rising from plates of carrot, an amuse bouche tomato fritter starter cooked on burners by the table – along with some seriously good food. Stand-out dishes include the chef’s own velvety foie gras enrobed in a chocolate crust; smoked dill Jerusalem artichokes and green apple purée served in tiny ice cream cones, and the delightful ‘Letter from the Ionian’: a rich wine sauce stifado that the chef delivers in a brown envelope with your name on it.
At Elements Restaurant & Bar the local gastronomy scene is taken to the next level. Executive Chef Tasos Stefatos has created a prolific and sophisticated menu of modern European cuisine with Greek touches, that challenges the palate through different stages.

Local volcanic stone, white Cycladic rendered walls and extraordinary sights attract visitors from all corners of the globe.

Every room has its own heated pool or plunge pool. There’s also a large infinity pool by the bar – edged in dark, volcanic rock its aquamarine waters look extra irresistible.
