La Collection, the Sydney- and Melbourne-based representatives specialising in pure luxury hotels and resorts, has strengthened its partnership with members of Marriott Bonvoy’s The Luxury Collection in Greece, signing three new properties to its expanding portfolio.
Mystique Hotel and Vedema Resort, both located on Santorini, along with Cosme, Paros – all part of The Luxury Collection – will be represented in the Australian and New Zealand markets by La Collection.
Craig Farrell, Director of Sales, La Collection said the properties are ideal additions to its Greek portfolio of Myconian Collection and Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort on Crete.
“The three Luxury Collection properties represent the very best of Santorini and Paros. Part of Kanava Hotels portfolio, which is owned by visionary couple Kalia Konstantinidou and Antonis Eliopoulos, who have been involved in Santorini hospitality since 1993 when Eliopoulos turned his family’s summer estate into the islands first 5-Star hotel – now the renowned Vedema, a Luxury Collection Resort. Being able to showcase these distinctive properties and destinations, in addition to Crete and Mykonos means we now offer a holistic Greek island portfolio that we can’t wait to share with our Australian and New Zealand partners,” Farrell said.
Kalia Konstantinidou added, “Through our properties we aspire to offer our guests the Greek essence of distinctive hospitality, wishing them to fully disconnect and create their own story, while embracing the authentic Cycladic lifestyle and carefree state of mind. We hope that they will carry home with them cherished memories and stories they can share with the people they love.”
