Best Hotel Pools On Santorini

Santorini is arguably one of the world’s most stunning destinations. The caldera’s rocky arc around a bright blue bay, and the wonderful white and blue Cycladean architecture clinging to the sides of the cliffs are extremely photogenic. And what could be more relaxing and rejuvenating than just looking out onto this amazing view from the comfort of one of the best hotel pools on Santorini?

There are many ways to choose a hotel, but a great pool is often a good indication of the overall experience. And there are some pretty amazing pools on Santorini. Our Guru’s list of the best hotel pools on Santorini starts with a pool with a view in Thira, then lists an amazing infinity pool in Imerovigli and finishes with a very affordable option in Oia. But there’s a best hotel pool in Santorini for everyone packed into that list somewhere. Plus some really beautiful photos of hotel pools…

For Perfect Views

Astarte Suites

  • The Astarte Suites in Thira is a collection of nine suites, high in the clouds of Santorini. Each suite has a private jacuzzi and balcony, on which champagne breakfasts are served. You’re close to the beaches but the pool is spectacular.
  • The Aenaon Villas in Imerovigli are a cluster of seven white villas, perched on top of the cliff, with all white rooms and huge private terraces offering panoramic caldera views. Secluded, and with a beautiful pool.

Amazing Infinity Pools

Grace Santorini

  • It’s a niche category, but there are some ‘wowzer’ photos! Like this one of Grace Santorini, which is cut from the cliff’s edge. There are 22 all-white rooms in this palatial feeling villa, each with a private balcony and some with hot tubs too.
  • Chromata has one of the best views in Thira. The 22 rooms are in a series of caves cut into the cliffside, and decorated in Santorini white on white, broken up with a bit of an Aztec flavour. There’s an intimate poolside restaurant plus an impossibly perfect infinity pool.

For Honeymooners

San Antonio

  • The Kapari Natural Resort is a luxurious, 19 room hotel carved directly into the cliffs of Imerovigli. The decor is neutral and relaxing, and of course offers all the mod. cons. plus a few more, including private hot tubs. Then there’s an excellent wine bar and restaurant with fantastic sea views.
  • San Antonio’s stunning, uninterrupted views of the caldera can be seen from the private balconies of all of its 25 rooms. Which also benefit from beautiful white decor, butler service, and an extensive spa menu. And there’s a gourmet restaurant.

For Families

Astra Suites

  • The Astra Suites in Imerovigli are a collection of 27 funky rooms and suites decorated in whites with splashes of bright colour. Some have private balconies, some private jacuzzis, but they all have access to a lovely Greek restaurant and spectacular swimming and lounge area.
  • Aigialos is another great option for families, with its collection of sugar cube houses on the cliff at Thira. There are houses sleeping two people and mansions sleeping five, plus in between options, and all have private balconies and access to a lovely pool and Mediterranean restaurant.

On a Shoestring

Renas Suites

  • Rena's Suites are a chic collection of B&B rooms in Thira, with fantastic views, all white rooms and suites, a great restaurant and large pool. And they start from under £50 per night.
  • The Remezzo Villas are a little more expensive, at around £80 per night. Their 12 rooms are converted from restored 18th Century villas with classic Cycladean feature, like white walls and vaulted ceilings. The rooms and suites are spacious and there are spectacular views from the private balconies.
