It would be easy to spend an entire vacation lazing around this all-villa property, which is home to Santorini’s biggest infinity pool and offers jaw-dropping 270-degree views of the Aegean Sea and Santorini’s satellite islands. The Honeymoon Suite is easily the most striking of the villas — it’s a two-tier cave-style stunner built into the cliffs — but each one offers distinct charms. Apartments in the traditional wing have an authentic Santorini aesthetic (whitewashed walls, blue doors, balconies with views of Santorini Bay), while those in the newer Petra Wing are cut into the island’s dark volcanic rock. Each unit comes stocked with eco-friendly Korres bath products and offers free WiFi and handy amenities (coffee machines, refrigerators). Plan to spend as much time as possible in the rooftop infinity pool, which is hewn from the rock and blends in seamlessly with the sea. The poolside bar serves local food until 6 p.m. and alcohol 24 hours a day.
In the Area
A 1956 earthquake virtually demolished Imerovigli, a small town near Santorini’s capital, Fira, but a tourism boom brought it back to life in the 1970s. Built like an amphitheater around Santorini’s caldera, the town offers some of the island’s best views of the Aegean, and world-renowned sunsets. When you’re not wandering the narrow cobblestone streets, ask the hotel staff to arrange a yacht trip to Santorini’s many satellite islands and nearby sulphur-fed hot springs. You can also set out on a three-hour hike from Fira to Oia, or dine nearby on locally grown eggplants, cherry tomatoes and wines.
How to Get There
My husband and I stayed here in September of 2017. It is absolutely incredible. The food, the staff, and most importantly the views! We splurged on the honeymoon suite which was pricey but worth every penny. The staff here is so accommodating, shuttles to pick us up and drop us off. This hotel is far enough away from the chaos of cruise tourists but also a 4 wheel drive or longer walk to the market in town. I hope one day we can revisit.
Perfect location for this hotel, not only for the stunning sunset and views but for the tranquility. Indeed the location guarantees that no hordes of photo-seeking tourists pass by your room and terrasse. Location is great since Imerovigli is lively, provides restaurants and bars and close to Fira yet streets can be walked normally. Oia is 1,5 hrs on foot which is a very nice walk.
A wonderful stay in this place to recommend, for the friendliness of all staff, the customer orientation, the setting and amenities. Thank you
My wife and I went to Santorini for our second wedding anniversary and decided to stay here.
I have to say that the hotel is great! The room we had, while small, had a breathtaking view and was very comfortable.
The restaurant is located on the far end of the hotel which make the view of the caldera basically surreal and every lunch & dinner quite an experience.
The only cons that I will point out is that the gym is outside the hotel (literally crossing the street) and that, while most of the staff is very friendly, a few people in reception could improve a bit -but this is me nitpicking.
Overall my wife and I had an amazing experience and I definitely recommend it ;)
My wife and I stayed here for a week in September. The scenery is the reason most people go to Santorini for, but this hotel is equally as beautiful.
I suppose if you are reading this review, you will have already seen the hotel website and other visitor's photos of the place, so you will be aware of how stunning it is. We took hundreds of photos of the pool, the room, the view at night, the view in the morning, the view of the sunset.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the whole hotel was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were lovely.
If you are considering going, then do so. You will not be disappointed!
Outstanding in every way - service, comfort, views, and taste. The hotel appears to be built into the cliff side, and it has an amazing view of the volcano caldera and passing cruise ships far below. Wish I had more time here. Late September can be a bit too windy and cold, so I plan to return in July.
