Overview

Romantic Aegean Sea sleep awash with sugar-cube cottages, pink bougainvillea, and jaw-dropping caldera views

The Lowdown

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.

Just spent an amazing two days at Katikies Hotel in Oia. Would give it a 7 star if I could! The location is perfect and has the best view in the area. The service at this boutique hotel is great and the staff is very kindly starting form the fornt office in the reception, concireg Ms. Vasiliki Piutza and the Hotel Manager Ms. Athina Antonopoulou.We loved the breakfast each morning. Our room was perfect. So nice to relax at the hotel after fighting the crowds along the pedestrian pathway. Just relaxing at one of the two pools was how we spent our afternoons. Would definitely come back here again!
