OMMA Hotel Santorini

Stones & Walls as Interior Architects

The Hotel’s concept focuses on the element of discovery through all of one’s senses, deriving from the Ancient Greek definition of the word OMMA (ὄμμᾰ), being vision.


Contemporary yet timeless, OMMA reflects a philosophy of sophisticated aesthetics, while its unique location at Imerovigli offers spectacular 360-degree views of both the Caldera and the Aegean Sea.

 

Embracing the concept of contemporary minimalism, colors, shapes and fabrics eschew exaggeration and quantity, composing clean-cut spaces, balancing aesthetics and function, while producing luxury and elegance. The extensive use of the white layer from which the black rock emerges, black oak and marble, combined with the almost natural raw materials, achieve coherence with the natural environment of Santorini, largely defined by lava and ash.

 

The monochromatic palette and the plastic forms, that highlight a morphological reference to the island’s landscape, prevail. The black and grey elements excluded through the white surfaces creating intense contrasts result in fluid spaces that sculpturally unfold in a tight-knit sequence, always inextricably linked to the magnificent view of the sea and horizon.

 

OMMA Santorini consists of thirty rooms and suites, most of which have a private pool. Twenty of them are organized amphitheatrically around the element of water, which visually continues in the endless blue of the sea. The various typology of rooms offers options for all kind of needs, providing different spatial qualities, luxurious amenities and possibilities. Pointing towards the west, rooms bask in the magnificent sunset from both indoors and outdoors.

 

Cater-cornered on the same 'arch' are located the hotel's restaurants. Each offer different aesthetic qualities and views concerning the landscape: one next to the pool, with the rocky bar and the drilled shading, engender an interesting play of  light and shadow, and the other on the first level - a Cycladic balcony with panoramic views of the Aegean. Generous outdoor space around the pool, complete with sunbeds and low sitting couches, provide the perfect setting for guests to sunbathe and lounge in elegance and comfort. The communal spaces, enjoying the breathtaking view of the Caldera, communicate visually and in conjunction with the aquatic element create a social field of various qualities and activities.

 

OMMA's 5 villas are organized in a separate zone, arranged linearly at the rear of the property, facing the East and enjoying the uninterrupted view of the sea. Each consists of two potentially independent levels, and has its own garden and swimming pool. Privacy of the open space has been taken into consideration in order to provide it with the ideal choice for those seeking complete isolation.

 

Wellness finds its own expression in the OMMA Spa. Detached from other communal areas, provides the required tranquility in atmospheric rooms, where the rock element prevails to stimulate the pursuit for ultimate contact with primitive nature.

 

Highlighting the rich impulses and qualities of the site, Santorini OMMA provides a unique hospitality experience allowing holidaymakers to indulge in elegance.
