When you hear the term "lava-themed," you might think of the brightly-colored sets of Netflix's hit show "The Floor Is Lava," but that's not what you're getting at this luxury resort.

Magma Resort Santorini is the first property from The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, the brand's stand-alone hotels, to open on the Greek Islands. Settled in beautiful Vourvoulos, guests are treated to the area's lava sand beaches which look out on the ​​Aegean Sea, and the array of vineyards not far from the resort.

The property features 59 rooms, including 24 suites, a sun terrace, an infinity pool, a spa, and an on-site restaurant, put together by Chef Arnaud Bignon, who led both Athens restaurant Spondi and London's Greenhouse to two Michelin-starred distinctions.

The resort's design, created by People Architects and Elastic Architects, is inspired by traditional Cycladic architecture. The curved shape of the building was inspired by the lava slopes surrounding the hotel, and the interior is minimally decorated with woods and stone, with darker tones mimicking the color of cooled magma. The rooms have basic amenities; some come with private pools and verandas.

Magma by Spondi, the resort's feature restaurant, based its menu and design on traditional Greek culinary history and is "paying homage to all thing's soul awakening," according to the hotel's website. Chef Arnaud Bignon created a menu that plays with regional ingredients and traditional dishes in a more modern way. 

The Lava Spa and Wellness Center is a must-visit for anyone looking to enhance their relaxation time. The spa is the largest on the island, at 4,628 square feet, and features an indoor pool and signature treatments meant to revitalize and rejuvenate.

The resort also features a 2,454 square-foot event space, Magma Hall, which can fit up to 250 guests for any event.
