Its famous sunset views include beautiful Thira town and Imerovigli's own lovely sugar cube buildings and churches.

Best places to stay in Imerovigli

For complete relaxation

  • Hotel Afroessa is a traditional, reasonably priced collection of fabulous sea view rooms and maisonettes. Almost every room has a private balcony, where an excellent breakfast is served each morning.
  • For a relaxing family holiday, the Astra Suites are one of the best places to stay in Imerovigli. This collection of funky rooms, suites and apartments have bright splashes of colour - some with private balconies, some with private jacuzzis, and some with self catering facilities. Though there's also a lovely Greek restaurant.
  • Chic and modern, the Avaton Resort & Spa is right on the path between Fira and Oia, just on the outskirts of Imerovigli, so it's one of the best places to stay in Imerovigli if you want your sea view unadulterated with the lights of other hotels and restaurants. For the ultimate away-from-it-all vista, without actually being in the middle of nowhere.

For the ultimate in luxury

Imerovigli boasts easy access to the excellent restaurants and bars, museums and port shopping of Thira, but none of the hassle of being in the thick of it.

  • Cut into the cliff edge, Grace Santorini is a haven of wonderful luxury designed to perfectly complement the spectacular surroundings. The best places to stay in Imerovigli tend to keep the decor simple and make the most of every view. Grace does that to stylish effect with the largest infinity pool on Santorini, an excellent restaurant with a sea view and a chic but simple spa.
  • The cavernous rooms and suites of the Kapari Natural Resort are cut from a similar cloth, but also have a great wine bar and some suites with hot tubs on private terraces. They're also one of the few luxury hotels in Santorini to welcome children, so this is a good bet for a family looking for luxury.

For honeymoon heaven

Imerovigli probably has one of the world's most spectacular sunsets. What else do you need for your perfect honeymoon?

  • Chromata adds to the beauty of the surroundings by being a collection of cave houses built into Santorini's cliffs and having an almost impossibly beautiful infinity pool. What makes it one of the best places to stay in Imerovigli for honeymooners are the private cave pools and the clear plexiglass bridge, which spans the main infinity pool and can be set to serve supper for two. How memorable is that!
  • San Antonio is another luxurious and spectacular offering in Santorini: white chic perched right on the cliff top. The things which probably make San Antonio one of the best places to stay in Imerovigli for honeymooners are their excellent spa - which of course has amazing views - their private outdoor sea view hot tubs, and their gourmet restaurant.
