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
Everyone who is working here in Katikies was amazing! So helpful, kind, and friendly. Especially I love breakfast here, it was great! I joined special dinner event and that was awesome too! I could make unforgettable memories! Thank you!
Everything about this hotel is five star! The staff is so conscientious and courteous. The food on this island is the best I have every had anywhere in the world. It is helpful to take advantage of the concierge and his/her knowledge of the local activities and his/her reserving the local restaurants and rentals.
The location is great, the service level of the staff, the care of the building, everything is the best. In particular, the sea and city view from the hotel was the best.
We were able to see the sea and city from the balcony of our room. For dinner, we took room service and ate on the balcony with a view.
