As far as many of us are concerned, Santorini is one of the most spectacular places on earth. The drama of her multicoloured volcanic cliffs are perfectly contrasted by the peaceful beauty of her white, cubist villas. She's as interesting as she is beautiful, what with her wineries and archaeological treasures. And her buzzing tavernas, fine restaurants and boutiques, and calm beaches beckoning welcomingly. Now you just need to know the best places to stay in Santorini to get the most out of her! For a list of great hotels check out our selecton below, or for an apartment or villa go to our online partner, booking.com.
Santorini for two
Can you imagine a more romantic view than that across the vast volcanic caldera?
- Chromata is one of the best places to stay in Santorini to appreciate this romance. It's got an infinity pool looking across the caldera! Built above traditional style 'cave houses' carved into the rocky cliff. Decked out in beautiful, simple luxury. And designed to make you feel like you're the only two people in existence.
- Notos Therme Resort and Spa is one of the best places to stay in Santorini because it captures the real romance of the place. It's on one of the last relatively undeveloped bits of coast: around Vilhada, a tiny fishing village. Celebrate the tranquility and views by treating yourself to a spa treatment or two - this is definitely one of the best places in Santorini to stay for hotel spa treatments. As well as being one of the best places to stay in Santorini for romance.
Show your kids Santorini
A Santorini holiday makes a treasured childhood memory. Her beauty is inspirational! But the cliff top resorts aren't exactly child-friendly.
- Closer to the beach, and further from the cruise ship crowds, Santorini Kastelli Resort is one of the best places to stay in Santorini for families. It's a good size, and beside a black sandy beach and friendly tavernas.
Once in a Lifetime Santorini
If Santorini's on your bucket list then really experience her!
- Arrive by sea! She's a spectacle on approach!
- Visit in late spring or early Autumn to avoid the crowds.
- Don't forget Akrotiri! Like Pompeii, this town of 5,000 was a thriving community until the eruption that made Santorini so beautiful today. So it's one of the best places to stay in Santorini to experience the sadness of her beauty.
- Oia's narrow streets and smart boutiques, make this town on one of the best places to stay in Santorini for traditional style. On the northern tip and facing the caldera you get the epic views. As well as fine dining and fine shopping in the white maze of a town. Stay at Katikies, one of the very best places to stay in Santorini - and possibly the most gorgeous boutique hotel in Greece! Our gurus rank their pool as one of the best in the world.
For an apartment or holiday villa
