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
Breathtaking view, impeccable service, and a great pool! The rooms were very private and situated on the cliff so that there was minimal foot traffic through our patio. The breakfast (especially the greek yogurt and honey) was delicious and was one of many highlights of our stay. The staff was very helpful and attentive to our needs. It was in an ideal location on the island where it was not crowded but still close enough to access Fira. As we were walking around the island we were pleased with our decision to stay at Honeymoon Petra because of its spacious layout and large pool area compared to many high end hotels nearby.
We loved our stay at Honeymoon Petra Villas, truly a luxurious escape. Everything about our stay was perfect; we did not stay much since we are in the middle of a small summer vacation tour, but it was an excellent choice of place. Our room was amazing, with a beautiful town/sea view. The design was unique and really allow you to relax. Excellent and attentive staff and the restaurant was an unexpected surprise. There is nothing that we could fault about this hotel, we were sad to leave and can't wait to return.
We stayed 3 days at Honeymoon Petra and we had an amazing time! Our room was perfect, the service was second to none and the views... breathtaking! Finally, their attention to detail blew us away.
We cannot recommend this hotel enough.
This is a great hotel - the location is perfect, the room is perfect - room size, decoration, amenities, comfort, - no complaint at all. House keeping can certainly be improved - they are in a bit of rush and honestly the room could be cleaned better. Food is a disappointment which is such a shame! Service is unfortunately not up to standard - not to the level for which the room charge was asking. There was a huge bath tub in the room and when we asked for bath salt, the reply was “no, I have never heard of such thing in my life” ?!!!! Requesting for tissue paper and bathrobe after “office hour” is apparently not feasible as maids are off. These are small gesture (or immaterial for the hotels) but makes a big difference when the response was not proper.
When you mention to family and friends that your going to Santorini, everyone has something great to say. So as you can imagine expectations are high!
Honeymoon Petra is located in the town of Imerovigli, perfectly situated with the most breathtaking views. So private and the staff just amazing. A really big thank you to both Vicky’s, Maria and the rest of the girls, you made us feel welcome and special.
