The best hotels in Santorini for your Vacation next Summer

When the world dreams of the Greek Islands, it’s Santorini that they picture.

The view of white-washed villages dangling on the edge of the volcanic caldera may be a romantic cliché, but it still takes your breath away

And while day-trippers clamour to capture that overworked sunset shot, the best hotels in Santorini serve it up on a platter.

Draw a curtain, order a cocktail or take a dip at these beloved addresses and you’ll enjoy a front-row seat to Santorini’s sensational views.

It’s not just the sun-soaked backdrop that these Santorini hotels promise; privacy is also part of the innate appeal.

On this list you’ll find boltholes hidden at the end of dirt tracks, intimate villas with uninterrupted sunset views and fish baked in vine leaves served at guest-only restaurants. It’s the Greece of dreams. Make it a reality with our edit of the best hotels in Santorini.

Nobu Hotel
Heading down from Imerovigli on the hiking trail from Fira to Oia is this glamorous cliffside pitstop. Its traditional Cycladic architecture looks like velvety cubes of white feta against a backdrop of succulents, Mediterranean palms and olive trees. But its real glory comes from the uninterrupted Aegean views from each of the resort’s 25 luxe rooms and suites. Minimalist and bright, the majority of accommodations are multi-story, with a jacuzzi or pool on the private balcony. Plush Cliff by Talenti sunbeds line the two-tiered resort pool, where Santorini’s famous sunset and Oia’s reddening volcanic cliffs are in full view. But the pièce de résistance here may be what Nobu does best: food. Breakfast is a healthy mix of greek yoghurt from the Pindus mountains and signature Matsuhisa Benedict. Dinner includes prized Hokusetsu sake and the dishes that earned Nobu its stars, including the best-selling miso black cod. Katie Lockhart  {Booking now here}

Andronis Boutique Hotel
Andronis is set right in the heart of little village Oía, on the northwestern tip of Santorini, among traditional whitewashed houses and blue-domed roofs lining the landscape. Rooms are dotted around the curves of the hotel’s traditional cave-style architecture. Lauda was the first restaurant built in Oía back in 1971, gathering locals and visitors to convene over traditional food sourced from the local area. That ethos continues today – using regional ingredients to create fresh dishes and bringing in top chefs to rustle up knock-out menus. Note: guests must be 13 or older to check in, and the vibe is definitely much more romantic retreat than family affair. Cordelia Aspinall   {Booking now here}

The Vasilicos
Beyond the snap-happy visitors and undulating whitewashed walls of Imerovigli village lies a boutique hideaway that’s a masterclass in Cycladic simplicity. Where subdued and serene design takes a backseat to the show-stopping caldera views. Owner Daphne Valambous spent her childhood summers in this house, and apart from the addition of several plunge pools and a professional kitchen, not much has changed since her father built it in the 1980s. True to its legacy as a family house, The Vasilicos is one of the few Santorini hotels that don’t have an adults-only policy, making it a great family hotel option in Greece, especially for older kids. For couples, check in to the Efta suite, a quiet cocoon slotted into the cliffside that’s completely secluded from view, and don’t miss sunset aperitifs at the two-table guests-only restaurant. Read our full review of The Vasilicos.  {Booking now here}

This is the hotel that made me fall hard for Santorini. And it’s what keeps me coming back. While the rest of the island can feel overrun at times, here everything is understated, unhurried, almost preternaturally calm. Much like the owner, Costis Psychas, a blond titan who built this honeycomb of cliff-side houses, stone by volcanic stone. More sculptor than builder, Psychas has distilled the eerie landscape into a cocoon of crisp white sheets on low-slung beds, a scattering of fuchsia cushions, a shapely pool seeping into the horizon. His clear-eyed daughter Sandrine now runs Perivolas with the same lack of pretension. This year, they’ve enlisted Theodoros Kakoulis, a brilliant young chef, to refresh the guests-only restaurant; smoked tomato and shrimp risotto and fish baked in vine leaves, served with sesame green beans and strawberries, are tantalisingly light yet complex. Another perk for the many repeat visitors: a smart new gym and grey lap pool. By Rachel Howard  {Booking now here}

Grace Santorini
Grace Santorini sits on the very edge of a cliff; viewed from above, it looks like a sunbather languidly dangling a limb over the lip of the island’s famous caldera. Carved out of two village houses partially destroyed in the 1956 earthquake, the hotel had 17 rooms and seven suites, plus two pools. All the rooms have terraces and are simply decorated in white. The hotel is not suitable for the elderly or infirm (there are 149 steps to negotiate), or children (under 14s are not allowed). Book room number 46, a honeymoon suite, for complete privacy. Located 1.2 mi from Fira, the award-winning Grace Hotel Santorini is an exclusive boutique hotel offering luxurious accommodations with panoramic sea views and free WiFi. It features an infinity pool and provides in-room spa treatments. The modernly decorated rooms and suites feature design items and include a satellite TV, DVD player and a balcony.

Experience culinary excellence at Grace Hotel A Michelin-awarded voyage of sensational taste, at the heart of Santorini’s stunning Imerovigli At Varoulko Santorini, pioneering Michelin-star awarded chef Lefteris Lazarou, proposes the most mouthwatering Mediterranean creations, bursting with authenticity, flavor and Santorinian flair. Sensational renditions of Greek cuisine favorites meet a dazzling backdrop of Cycladic perfection in a journey that captivates the senses from the very first moment.  {Booking now here}

Originally built in 1864 by a local sea captain, this hotel, with just three suites, has been restored to its original form while mod cons have been discreetly introduced. It is now a listed building so there’s no pool, although there is a blue marble ‘Rain Zone’ mega-shower in which to cool off after sunbathing. Despite being in the heart of Oia, each suite has spectacular views of Santorini’s volcanic caldera. Breakfasts can last into the afternoon, and the two restaurants run by the owners will provide lunch and dinner on request. The house has its own Jeep and access to a private yacht.  Boasting direct views to the Aegean Sea, volcano and the world-famous caldera, the historic 1864 The Sea Captain’s House has stylish rooms with king-size beds. Located in the scenic Oia village, it is 220 steps from Ammoudi Beach. Fitted with four-poster beds, all suites combine Santorini’s minimal esthetics with Renaissance influences. Each opens to a furnished terrace with sea and caldera views. Bulgari toiletries are provided for free. Guests can enjoy an American breakfast, which is served until late into the day, at the Captain’s House courtyard or the common terrace. Restaurants and café can be found within 21 m.Exclusive massage and body treatments can be arranged at each of the suites’ private terraces. Beach towels and free WiFi access are available.

Located right on the cliff edge in Oia, this is one of the island’s best hotels. Two split-level suites are in the 18th-century former home of a noble family: the façade is painted its original pale ochre and the interiors are decorated with antiques and Orthodox icons displayed on pale-blue walls. The other 25 rooms and suites, with similar interiors, sea views and patios, have bright white exteriors and look like a jumble of sugar cubes tumbling down the cliff. More than 200 steps connect the rooms, swimming pools – including a beautiful infinity pool – and public areas, and the small rooftop terrace restaurant serves delicious, fresh seafood. The nearest beach is five minutes’ free transfer away, although it’s probably quicker to walk in summer, when the narrow roads are clogged with coaches.  Perched on the cliffs of Oia, 92 m above the blue waters of the Aegean, Katikies Hotel offers 2 restaurants – Botrini’s Santorini and Katikies Lower Deck Lounge. Its infinity pools enjoy sweeping views of the Caldera. Each of the white-washed rooms has a private terrace with unforgettable sea views. All rooms are air conditioned and come with satellite TV and CD player. Guests also enjoy a mini-bar, as well as a mini wine cellar and a fridge. The boutique hotel’s facilities include open-air and indoor hot tubs and swimming pools. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the hotel.

The rooms – better described as apartments – are spacious with sparsely decorated, white-washed interiors, flatscreen TVs, big bathrooms, verandahs, and – in some suite categories – private pools or Jacuzzis. Service is impeccable, friendly and relaxed, and the fantastic breakfast buffet, served at the poolside restaurant, might very well be the best on Santorini.

Incognito Villa
It might seem impossible to be far away from everything on this island, but places such as Incognito Villa manage it. Set at the end of a dirt track on the beach near Monolithos, it has its own garden and a little pool, and there are tavernas within strolling distance in either direction along the sand. Even in the height of summer, it is astonishingly quiet. Located in Kamari, within a few steps of Agia Paraskevi Beach and 2.4 km of Monolithos Beach, Incognito Beach Villa Santorini offers accommodations with free WiFi, air conditioning, a seasonal outdoor swimming pool and a garden.

Voreina Gallery Suites
Pyrgos, at the foot of Profitis Ilias mountain, the island’s high point, is the largest and best-preserved of the medieval settlements. It is more peaceful and more Greek than the white towns on the cliff edges. Worn stone stairs wind elegantly upwards to the Venetian castle. Part of the way up is Voreina Gallery Suites, where contemporary art fills the walls and the caldera and sunsets can be seen from terraces without the taxi fare to Oia. Perched on a hillside in Pyrgos village, the Voreina features uniquely decorated suites with artwork pieces, offering spectacular sunset views of the Aegean Sea.

Andronis Arcadia
Polished concrete and white-washed brutalist cubes rise from the ground at the winding, sprawling Andronis Arcadia. All roads lead to to the sparkly Aegean sea, which sits below the hotel to the west – meaning there are ludicrously brilliant sundowner views from the restaurant, the infinity-swimming-pool-meets-beach-club and the pretty bedrooms. Every room has a cool, dark plunge pool on its private terrace, where the polished floor leads inside to rattan details and wicker furniture, a low bed and a calming bathroom. There’s a buzzy restaurant, complete with DJ and regular parties, and a small but sweet spa. But you’re really there for the space, a serious luxury on this island, and the privacy, which is equally hard to find, and those uninterrupted sunset views – practically unheard of. Read the full Andronis Arcadia hotel review. Set within 3.7 mi of Cape Columbo Beach and 300 m of Naval Museum of Oia, Andronis Arcadia Hotel in Oia provides a terrace and rooms with free WiFi.

Perivolas Hideaway
A splinter of land detached from Santorini by a volcanic eruption in 1613BC, Thirassia has somehow escaped everyone’s attention. Very few visitors bother to visit this breakaway island. Even fewer get to stay at Perivolas Hideaway, a magnificent villa resurrected from the ruins of a pumice mine. Invisible from afar, the red-and-black stone house appears like a floating mirage as you approach by speedboat. (The only other way to reach it is by helicopter.) The sea is framed in every arched window, the barely there but ever-ready staff are a dream, but it’s the roof terrace that steals the show. At dusk, Santorini turns blue-black across the caldera, villages sparkling like fairy lights strung along the clifftops. By Rachel Howard This 5-star hotel, offering an infinity pool with magnificent sea view, is located on the cliffs high above the Aegean Sea, a short walking distance from the picturesque Oia. The hotel features 22 private houses in restored 300 year-old caves. Each suite enjoys free Wi-Fi internet access and a comfortable seating area. The wellness center features a steam bath, sauna, open-air hot tub and massage facilities. The fitness center opens at 7:30 and closes at 21:00 and allows guests to exercise while taking in views of the cliffs. Housed in a restored wine cellar, the Perivolas Restaurant serves Mediterranean and Greek cuisine prepared with local products, only to hotel guests. Tables are candlelit with views out to sea. Free 2-way transfer from the port and airport is available and free private, on-site parking is possible. {Booking now here}

Santo Maris OIA
The location of this all-suite hotel, on a scrubby hill just below Oia, feels slightly off at first. But as the sun drops seaward in a swirl of pink and lilac, right in front of your hot tub, it all starts to make sense. Ask for one of the new rooms, added in May 2018, for the very best views. The cavernous spa is another draw. As well as scrubs, wraps and facials, you can get the Lucky Treatment: a four-hand massage that supposedly makes any wish come true. Dubious, but it will make you glow. By Rachel Howard Just a 5-minute walk of the center of Oía Village of Santorini and surrounded by greenery, Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites & Spa offers views of the Aegean Sea, 5 outdoor swimming pools and a fitness center. It features whitewashed domed suites, each with a private veranda fitted with an outdoor hot tub and sun loungers. All air-conditioned suites are stylishly decorated and have a flat-screen TV with satellite channels as well as a kitchenette with dining area, kettle and a mini-bar. Each bathroom comes with a bath or shower, free toiletries and a hairdryer. Guests may enjoy modern Greek cuisine and signature dishes at the on-site Alios Ilios Restaurant. Facilities include an award-winning spa and wellness center featuring an indoor heated pool and several body treatments upon charge. A pool bar, free parking and free WiFi in all areas are provided. Fira Town is 6.8 mi away and Santorini Airport is at 11 mi.  {Booking now here}

Privacy is a rare privilege on Santorini. This stunning villa breaks the mould. Behind stone walls covered with prickly pears, through a narrow passageway, is a sudden vast terrace and a tiered pool plunging 1,000ft to the sea. With whitewashed kilims and giant spotty beanbags, the playful, graphic design is unmistakably Paola Navone, the Italian designer behind several COMO hotels. Four softly monochrome suites are in separate houses, which you can rent individually or as a whole. (Unusually for Santorini, children are welcome and there are no steep stairs.) Watching birds, boats, sunbeams and stars draw patterns on sea and sky is like stepping inside a 360-degree Viewmaster. With a wood-fired oven, wine cellar, marble spa, yoga instructor, outdoor cinema and a winsome staff of 10, you barely need to venture out. By Rachel Howard. Perched on a cliff overlooking the Caldera, Erosantorini Estate covers an area of 8.000 m2 in Fira and features an infinity pool and terraces with outdoor seating area and day beds. It offers suites with outdoor whirlpool or heated pool and also includes a private chapel, a wine cellar and an open-air cinema.

Controversially painted cream rather than blinding white, this hotel – a sister property to Vedema Resort (above) – has 35 suites and villas carved into the cliff. All have caldera views and the decor complements the troglodytic look with island flair, Flintstones-style: coffee tables shaped like large pebbles on limestone floors; bedheads and lamps sculpted from driftwood; cushions embroidered with traditional floral designs. With friendly staff, Jacuzzis and those views, you won’t need to hyperventilate to reach nirvana – anyway, all the steps up and down between the suites, the infinity-edged pool and the village obviate the need for a gym. There is a cave-cellar full of interesting wines, and the restaurant serves delicious dishes made with fresh, local ingredients.
