The Island is expecting another bumper tourism year by extending the season across more months. Last year the Cycladic Island enjoyed one of the highest growth rates in arrivals among Greek resorts: Air arrivals from abroad expanded by 27 percent year-on-year to reach 310,433, outperforming the yearly growth rate seen around the country (15.4 percent) in 2014.

Santorini Project refers to the creation, operation and development of a luxury Hotel Unit, in a 13000m2 Plot located in the Village of Kamari on the Eastern Side of the Island.

The basic objective is the Hotel Unit to attract demanding customers at domestic and mostly at international level. The configuration of the buildings and the subsequent operation management of the Units will be shaped in accordance to the specific goal. Santorini is an ideal international tourist’s attraction, as it attracts visitors from around the globe (Europe, Asia, Russia, Arab States, America).

The proposed Building Configuration will follow the dynamic trend of creating a complex of two types of autonomous accommodation units (Simple One Storey Apartments and Two Storey Apartments) with personalized services, unique design style, and emphasis on the concepts of privacy, quality, comfort and luxury. Both types of accommodation units will be combined and form autonomous buildings which may operate as a whole (villa) or may be rented separately in accordance to the wish of the Investor. Each Building will have its own private Pool whilst the whole Hotel Unit complex will be accompanied by a Central Reception Building.
