Teetering on a cliff edge that veers off a cute cobblestone lane lined with whitewashed tavernas, blue-domed churches and chic art galleries, the Andronis Boutique Hotel is a jumble of luxe rock-hewn suites with private Jacuzzis overlooking Santorini’s famous caldera. Chunky slate-gray steps tumble down from the small reception area to an intimate pool and alfresco dining terrace. The higgledy-piggledy layout ensures that suites are perfectly secluded and that all lines of sight are drawn to the sparkling Aegean Sea below.
Bed and Bath
Channel your inner troglodyte in one of the 23 cave-like suites. Accessed by private gated entrances that give way to secluded balconies, these sassy sleeping quarters have sex appeal in spades. Stark white bedrooms blur the line between minimalism and coziness, with slate-gray flooring, kingsize beds topped with plush throws, mosaic-framed mirrors and small seating areas hidden in alcoves. Sleek, masculine bathrooms have matte black fixtures and fittings and giant walk-in rain showers stocked with products from Apivita. The star attraction in each room is the private Jacuzzi, which forms part of either the bathroom or the balcony. Take a soak at night, and twinkly lights dance between the bubbles.
Breakfast can be taken either by the pool in a shaded dining area or on your balcony at no extra cost. The hefty spread includes thick Greek yogurt, local honey, fresh fruits, pastries, eggs made to order and deliciously strong coffee. Snacks are dished up by the pool during the day, and at night the poolside daybeds are whisked away and replaced by candlelit tables for two on the terrace. Pick from an edited menu of Greek classics: pork souvlaki, a posh take on chicken kebabs, fava beans with marinated octopus, and a top selection of wines made from grapes grown in Santorini’s volcanic soil.
In the Area
The hotel has agreements in place with local catamaran companies and can organize a cruise on your behalf. Opt for the sunset cruise and you’ll sail past Santorini’s Red and White beaches, make a stop at the hot springs to bathe in volcanic waters and tuck into a Greek BBQ as the sun sets over the tip of the island. Walk along Oia’s pedestrianized cobblestone main street. It’s very touristy — all art galleries, jewelry shops and restaurants — but very pretty, and your best bet on the island for upmarket shopping. In the evening, follow the crowds to the ruined castle at the very tip to watch the sun illuminate the white buildings and windmills before sinking into the Aegean Sea. The six-mile drive from Oia to Imerovigli is an event in itself: winding, narrow roads, sheer cliff faces and extraordinary views — sometimes on both sides. Just take it slowly; 20 minutes will ensure you get you there safely.
How to Get There
The views were breathtaking and all the staff were great! The food at the pool was wonderful as was the food at the great romantic restaurant at night...incredibly romantic space! We really enjooyed the pools and hot tub by our room. thank you!
Warning! The personal treatment and VIP Santorini arrangements made by this hotel staff may cause delusions of grandeur. I was quickly and painfully reminded that I am in fact not royalty after leaving.
The first impression is a very private and breathtaking view of the famous caldera to jumpstart your stay. Such peace and privacy is a treasure in Oia during peak season for cruise liners visiting Santorini. The staff and service will blow your mind. They are genuinely friendly and extremely accommodating. It’s the kind of place where you take photos with the staff to remind you of their amazing service.
The rooms are very intimate and uniquely charming by their Santorini cave design. Couples will feel likely they are on their honeymoon with such features as a private indoor/outdoor jacuzzi. The food was also superb with an all included breakfast package that made you question how it could possibly be included with the room.
Book it! You won’t regret it.
Unique service provided by Maria Ilena, Penny, and Maria, as well as the entire staff . Theyanticipated our every need and exceeded any expectations, before arrival, upon arrival, and throughout our stay. The answer was always yes, usually before we asked the question. Each contact with them was memorable, genuine, and heart felt.
The stairs and in cave suites present some inconvenience, but are part of the experience, which provided us with one of our most memorable vacations. View and in town location are the very best.
We stayed at the Andronis boutique hotel for the last 3 days of our trip to Greece to celebrate our 25th anniversary. I can't say enough good things about our experience here. The staff goes above and beyond to cater to your every need, but without being pretentious or invasive. The accommodations are absolutely lovely and sparkling clean, and the views are breathtaking. Our experience at the Andronis will not be forgotten, as it was the most exquisite hotel stay we've ever had.
