When you hear about the country Greece, the first thing that comes up to mind for most people is an idyllic place of white-painted structures surrounded by the bluest waters. It may be picturesque and cliché, but that’s exactly how places like Santorini in Greece looks like. Perhaps there’s no other place on the planet that exudes idealistic beauty and relaxation more than Santorini does. If you want to see and experience the best that Santorini has to offer, then you must consider staying at one of the 5-star hotels that area scattered throughout Santorini. Here are the top five hotels you should consider first.
Andronis Luxury Suites
This place is absolutely dreamy. If you stay here at the Andronis Luxury Suites, you’d feel like you’re part of Greek mythology—a god or goddess overlooking the Aegean. The décor may be minimalist, but that’s exactly what adds to the overall sense of luxury the hotel provides. You get some of the coolest views around, and the multi-level balconies of the hotel is something that’s representative of what everyone thinks Greece looks like. It’s as stunning as anything you could dream of. It’s a bit costly to spend a night here, but for what you’re getting, you’d agree that it’s all worth it.
This hotel only has 22 rooms and suites, and the hotel is actually a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. There’s something about the openness that you get in each of the 22 guest rooms, and the entire hotel is designed to preserve Cycladic architecture. The result is something that’s widely captivating and almost hauntingly beautiful. The all-white furnishings are stark, and it’s made that way to highlight the unique views of the hotel outdoors. We recommend lounging by the pool until day slowly turns into night. There’s no better way to spend your time in Santorini than by being close to the water or in the water. Otherwise, you can enjoy the small hotel’s many amenities and dining options.
Canaves Oia Hotel
There may be only 18 suites to choose from, but that’s exactly what gives this hotel the exclusivity feel that’s hard to get someplace else. You’ll definitely want to get up for breakfast every morning not only to watch the sunrise but because of the very fact that your breakfast is free and included. You can enjoy the sights in the morning just before the sun hits the water full force. It’s absolutely breathtaking. But apart from the free breakfast and the views, you’re getting so much more with a stay at this hotel. You can get the usual hotel fares such as laundry service and a concierge. You’ll also get access to a spa that has some of the best and most pristine views.
Lilium Santorini Villas
At Lilium Villas, you’ll be getting the most elegant simplicity in a hotel setting like no other. The Aegean architecture coupled with touches of color here and there is the perfect setting for the perfect vacation. This is the type of place where you’ll want all the windows open for as long as possible—even all day long. Apart from the stunning views of the water and the volcano, you’ll want to feel that refreshing and immaculate breeze that only a place like Santorini could provide. Every single place in Santorini offers up its own magic, and the magic at Lilium Villas is the unforgettable landscape and design of the entire hotel. You’ll want for nothing else while you’re staying here.
Pegasus Suites and Spa
From the stunning location to the excellent customer service, this hotel is one of the best options when it comes to luxury stays in Santorini. It has plenty of the same options as some of the other hotel, but it also has a few different hotel features. First off, this hotel’s luxury spa has more offers such as hydrotherapy and hamam. In addition, every single suite and villa in this property has its own private infinity pool. Why share your infinity pool view when you can have your very own? There’s plenty enough of Santorini’s captivating views to go around, but you should be able to enjoy it in the privacy of your own space
