With just 34 rooms, private plunge pools, clandestine verandahs, and dreamy blue walls, this cliff-side retreat is perched at an impressive 300 feet above the Aegean. Its cubist cottages, connected by over 200 steps, and two split-level suites (once home to a noble family in the 1700s) make it the perfect setting for your Greek fairytale to unfold. Living is refreshingly easy here. On the docket: trips to each of the three infinity pools, bottomless cups of coffee on your wind-swept balcony—rooms are cavernous, and decked with antiques, Greek Orthodox icons, and even the occasional mini wine cellar. Or partake in a lazy meal at one of the three restaurants, including the showstopper, the rooftop jewel-box, Mikrasia, a sultry display of iridescent curtains and woven cushions, which serves a four-course Byzantine tasting menu. The wagyu burgers and prawn tempuras at Seltz, the resort’s open-air champagne bar, are also mandatory. Even the hotel’s boutique is no ordinary gift shop, filled with sleeker spins on ancient Greek footwear, chic swimsuits by Melissa Odabash, and Ligne St. Barth toiletries.
In the Area
The resort’s seemingly isolated cliff-top address makes it easy to forget you’re a quick walk from Oia’s nightlife, and a 15-minute ride to Santorini International Airport. Don’t miss an evening at the area’s oldest bar, Kira Thira, known for its vaulted ceilings, house-made sangria, and live jazz. Oia’s other noteworthy sites—provided you can peel yourself away from the intoxicating R&R the resort affords—include the Bronze Age settlement of Akrotiri (thought to be the site that inspired Plato’s Atlantis) and the Santorini Brewing Company—both are about 30-minute drives from the resort. Also within easy distance: Oia Castle and two prized volcanic-sand beaches, Baxedes and Cape Columbo.
How to Get There
Our stay in Santorini was a honeymoon trip. Since the beginning, the staff was friendly, helpfull, and cordial. They gave us the best time we could have with eachother!! Confortable rooms and bed, nice service, breakfest in room. Would definately come back to Katikies Santorini in a future trip to Greece
Our family visited Santorini on our tour of several Greek Islands. On Santorini we stayed at the Katikies resort. The location was spectacular. The rooms were large, clean, luxurious and comfortable. The staff was amazingly professional and helpful. We would recommend Katikies to anyone that plans on visiting the island of Santorini.
Katikies was everything we had hoped that it would be - gorgeous views of the caldera, great service, and a serene place we could truly relax. We stayed 7 nights, and the last night they even moved us over to the Master Suite at the Katikies Hotel (which is a 1-minute walk), which was more than generous. It was nice to be able to experience both properties.
The villas only have 7 rooms, but you have full access to the pools and restaurants at the Katikies Hotel, so we split our time between the two. In my opinion, the pools at the Hotel have nicer open views. Order a cocktail called 'The Agave Influence' -- I'm still dreaming about it.
Thanks to the wonderful staff for making this an incredible week in Oia!
We stayed 4 nights at Katikies and we loved every second of it (except from the Chinese people who were trying to jump on the terrace/stairs of the hotel to take pictures ).
The manager Athina is very good at her job, she speaks with every customer to understand their needs and is very reactive if something does not suit them ...
We loved our stay in Santorini (even though there is far too much tourists...) because once we were back in our little nook of paradise at Katikies we had the impression we were alone on the island...!
Pools are amazing, view is stunning, food is excellent, SPA is extremely professional and I would say one of the best 4 hands massage of my life), the beds are SO confortable, the only thing I would maybe criticize is that some of the stuff are not fluent in English and sometimes it leads to some little misunderstanding, but clearly after visiting some other places on the island, it is the place to stay...!
Mgr Althina greeted guests personally and sent Prosecco to our room for our anniversary! Maria at Reception was extremely helpful- mailing postcards and confirming tour pick up. We loved our room 14 with private wrap around terrace and caldera view. All stairs so the staff and housekeeping were like ninjas swooping in when you left and carrying away laundry in sacks on their backs! The buffet breakfast included was amazing -try the cold chocolate drink! The infinity pool was refreshing and the view over the caldera was stunning! Highly recommend this memorable luxurious property!
