An ancient setting and sleek modern design combine at this cool haven that's built into the caldera cliff.
With characterful features and a private plunge pool and spa tub in every room, it’s no wonder that this luxury boutique hotel is renowned as one of Santorini’s ultimate escapes. The architecture here is particularly impressive, with old and new coming together to create something super sleek, and the quiet location is still within easy reach of livelier parts of the island by car or taxi.
As well as the private pools, the hotel has an expansive infinity pool surrounded by a large sun terrace with plenty of loungers. For uninterrupted relaxation and rejuvenation, pay a visit to the Wellness Thelma Spa and enjoy a detoxifying massage or facial. If you’re too relaxed to move, a therapist can even come to your suite or sun lounger. Omega3 is one of Santorini’s most sought-after restaurants, with an elegant poolside setting and carefully crafted Greek dishes. Fresh fish and seafood dishes, served with the freshest local ingredients and hand-picked artisan products, are exquisitely presented. Ask the resident sommelier to choose the perfect accompanying wine from the extensive wine list.
Spacious rooms and suites have white-washed walls and traditional vaulted ceilings in keeping with local design, but you won't be without mod cons or short of luxury amenities here. Every room has custom-made furniture, sea views, its own private pool and spa tub. Superior Deluxe Rooms offer something a little unusual – carved into the volcanic rock and accessed through a tunnel. For more space, there's a range of Luxury Suites, while the Infinity Cave Suites – accessed by a steep tunnel through the rock – are the perfect choice for honeymooners. For families and groups, there are the Serenity Two Bedroom Suites and the glorious two- and three-bedroom Ambassador Villas.
In the quiet Akrotiri area in the south of Santorini, a stone's throw away from the Akrotiri Archaeological Site. There are a couple of simple local restaurants within walking distance, plus some great options a 10-minute drive away that offer a pick-up and drop-off service (arranged through the hotel concierge)
