Cliffside all-villa retreat with jaw-dropping views of the Aegean Sea from Santorini's biggest infinity pool
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.
