Seclusion, sophistication and sublime service combine at this all-suite Santorini retreat.

Set on the highest point of Imerovigli – a traditional Cycladic settlement perched high above the Aegean Sea – Gold Suites dramatically overlooks the Skaros Fortress. The beauty of the region is captured on every corner of this resort. The outdoor pool on the rim of the caldera provides one of the best vantage points: from a lounger on the idyllic sun terrace, cocktail in hand. For Mediterranean and local island cuisine at lunch and dinner, head to Aurum Restaurant which is located right at the caldera's edge.

You could easily spend your time here simply lounging on your suite's terrace, relaxing and soaking up the view. But it's worth at least taking a leisurely stroll to Fira, passing by charming restaurants, shops and scenic viewpoints. For a more active break, the friendly staff can point you in the right direction of local activities from bike riding and horse riding to sailing, scuba diving and watersports. For luxury adventures, take your pick from helicopter rides, private sailing trips and yacht excursions. The treatments in the Gold Spa Suite, which is located in a cave and features a whirlpool bath and steam room, are inspired by the seasons and nature's healing powers.

Accommodation is in just 14 plush suites that cascade over four levels down the cliffside. The suites have classic white décor with splashes of gold, and all have a living area, large terrace and views of the caldera. Upgrade to a Superior Suite for your own heated Jacuzzi on the terrace, or a more spacious Deluxe Suite for your own private outdoor heated pool.
