For unparalleled Aegean Sea views from your private infinity pool, book one of these opulent Santorini hotels.
Undecided about where to stay in Santorini? The island is known for its whitewashed villas and azure-domed rooftops, perched on the steep hillside – a true Greek paradise. Here’s a small selection of the top luxury hotels and retreats for a carefree vacation on the idyllic Greek island of Santorini.
Lying on the outskirts of Oia, this all-suite hotel boasts sublime sunsets, deluxe rooms and a vibe that’s as chilled as a glass of ouzo lemonade. It’s also home to a large infinity pool – with views towards Ios and Sikinos – an open-air spa, a yoga pavilion and a gym. The suites appeal to admirers of minimalism, with potted plants and local handicrafts on display to complement the chic white palette. For dinner, reserve a table on the terrace of Opson Restaurant, and savour dishes – made using fresh ingredients from the garden – famously favoured by philosophers Aristotle, Plato and Omiros (Homer).
Named after the ancient Greek word for “light”, this uber-luxe pad has sleek white exteriors, bright and airy interiors, and spectacular sea views. Rooms – many with a private pool – feature neutral colour schemes, custom-built furniture and fluffy towels and luxurious toiletries. Sun loungers and a pool bar flank the large infinity pool, while the main restaurant serves everything from fresh squid to local lamb. If you want to explore the island, the concierge team can arrange excursions for you, including volcano sightseeing, wine-tasting adventures and even a private helicopter flight.
