A holiday in Greece is one of the best ways to celebrate your new life together, and Carpe Diem is honeymoon heaven in Santorini.
This is surely one of Greece’s most romantic retreats, a place to unwind and uncover the exotic. Here's what to look forward to after walking down the aisle.
With just ten suites centred around an infinity-edged pool, Carpe Diem provides a level of exclusivity that escapes many resorts.
Created solely for adults, couples and newlyweds, each of the 10 suites is sleek and sensual. They also happen to be the largest suites in Santorini, so you'll have plenty of space to stretch out.
Inside, brilliant white interiors contrast the blue of the pool on your terrace. Earthy materials such as black lava rock frame the living rooms and spa-inspired bathrooms, and it all comes together to set an intimate mood.
The Astra Suite is purpose-built as a honeymoon home away from home, with the resort's largest heated pool, its own private terrace and deluxe amenities to fulfil all your wishes.
What's more romantic on your honeymoon than dinner under the stars?
Inspired by Santorini's culinary excellence, GAIA serves up zesty island flavours, heartwarming aromas and palate-pleasing textures masterminded by Chef Vassilis Zacharikis.
Another option is to savour light bites and cool creations at the 270° Bar along with gorgeous vistas of northern Santorini. Rest and recline with meze and a glass of summer wine. Or, will you cool off with a fabulous frozen cocktail while watching the sunset?
Sublime Spa Time
As well as delicious dining, the VIP treatment at Carpe Diem is outstanding.
Your journey to well-being starts at Althea Spa, which has partnered with Apivita, Greece's leading natural cosmetics company, to deliver a spa experience like no other.
Relax with your other half in the solitude of the yin-yang shaped Jacuzzi, rejuvenating hammam and sauna. The massages and body treatments offered at Carpe Diem feature only natural Hellenic herbs, plants and fruits to nourish you from top to toe.
Want a hassle-free honeymoon? A personal butler? The full package? Carpe Diem's staff will pamper you like royalty and tailor everything to your taste.
Choose from several honeymoon packages designed to leave you in awe. Cycladic Radiance includes Moët & Chandon champagne upon arrival, special honeymoon suite decorations, 2-hour use of the spa, a couple's ritual massage and wine tasting at an award-winning winery. Yes, it's as sweet as it sounds.
The concierge team is also on hand to ensure a memorable Santorini experience — reservations can be arranged for the most beautiful yachts, restaurants and wineries on the island.
Honeymoons at Carpe Diem take you out of the typical tourist traps — a fantastic base to explore Santorini with your spouse away from the crowds.
Taste local vintages at Santo Wines a short stroll away. Hike up to Pyrgos castle atop the island's best-preserved medieval settlement. Wander down to the maze of narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. Scuba dive to the Aegean Sea floor or tour the caldera terrain by luxury car. Then skip back to the hotel for evening drinks and toast to your life happily ever after.
If a honeymoon filled with sunbathing, dining, indulging and exploring the hidden sights of Santorini sounds like bliss to you, Carpe Diem is undoubtedly the resort to do it from.
