The Best Hotels In Santorini

Santorini is one of our most popular destinations. We’ve inspected many of the hotels ourselves and sent many of our clients there. We’ve got the inside lowdown on the very best hotels for a gay or lesbian honeymoon in Santorini.

The architecture in Santorini is very distinctive. As you explore the island, you’ll find endless places for a dreamy photo opportunity. As the settlements in Santorini are up the caldera, you’ll be greeted with panoramic views wherever you look – including from your hotel.

Many of Santorini’s best hotels are family-run. There aren’t any big resorts in Santorini – they wouldn’t fit amongst its ancient houses and blue-domed churches.

One of our favourite hotels in Santorini is Perivolas. Its classic Grecian design is stunning. Perivolas is considered to be the hotel that put Oia on the map. It’s a cave hotel – the suites are carved stone by stone from the cliff. All come with direct caldera views. Some rooms come with private plunge pools overlooking the Aegean. Perivolas captures the essence of Grecian design and the understated luxury Santorini is famous for.

Things To Do In Santorini

Santorini is most popular as a honeymoon and couples vacation spot. It’s recorded history stretches way back to the Minoans, a civilisation that pre-dated the ancient Greeks. Their reign over the Cyclades came to an end around 3,500 years ago. The eruption at Thera all but destroyed the island – much of it tumbled into the caldera. Wherever you look you’ll see the effects of this vast explosion.

You can take a trip to Akrotiri and discover the remains of the Minoans. The eruption preserved some of their ancient artworks that would otherwise have disappeared in time.

Santorini is famous for wine – it’s been a wine producing area since the dawn of ancient Greece. As it’s a volcanic island with a desert climate, its wine has a unique edge.

The capital of Santorini is Fira. It’s where everyone gathers in the evening to watch Santorini’s world famous sunsets. The bars and will be full and the atmosphere is quite spectacular. It can get very busy in peak season – especially in Fira. There are other villages to explore, including Oia and Imerovigli.
