Overview

An idyllic neoclassical mansion with unrivaled views of the Aegean Sea, high atop Santorini’s caldera

The Lowdown

Set high atop Santorini’s caldera (820 feet above the Aegean, to be exact), La Maltese is housed in a 100-year-old neoclassical mansion off the tourist path in the lightly traveled town of Imerovigli. Relaxing comes high on the agenda, and a stay here is all about enjoying the nightly wine tastings on the outdoor deck, sunning yourself by the pool, and breakfasting alfresco on the balcony (breakfast is served until 3 p.m.). La Maltese lacks many standard hotel formalities, with no reception area or strict meal schedule, and the lobby-cum-living-room is dotted with antiques, oriental rugs and ornate mirrors, making the whole place feel like your own private villa. Each of its nine rooms are luxurious and elegant, with handmade four-poster beds and intricate gilt mirrors. The Honeymoon and Master Suites are as spacious as they are lavish; both split over two floors they come with their own private verandas with volcano views, while the Standard Double Room has a veranda with inland views. Of course, days here aren’t meant to be spent fully en chambre, and the hotel’s pool deck has a terrace, gorgeous infinity pool, and plenty of loungers for lazing the afternoon away. Then there’s the spa, with its indoor heated Jacuzzi, hammam, sauna, jet showers, relaxation area and experienced therapists. After you’ve rested up, you can get out and explore Santorini in style. The staff can arrange a car to the best beaches, or a private yacht charter. When your day is done and you’re enjoying the fiery sunset, it’s easy to see why this island has enchanted travelers for centuries.
