This ideal couples’ escape is sculpted into the walls of the caldera overlooking the Aegean Sea.
The view takes centre stage at this boutique hotel in Firostefani. The Sun Rocks Hotel is characterised by understated elegance and exemplary service, and its focus is on creating a tranquil couples’ hideaway. The Cycladic architecture is apparent with elegant white-washed walls, crisp blue trimmings, dramatic vaulted ceilings and large verandas. Inside however, you can expect all the modern comforts associated with luxury living.
Start the day with an à la carte breakfast which includes popular freshly-made local delicacies at the poolside Elea restaurant. Or, for a small charge, opt for room service. Then choose a poolside lounger with a view, pick up your book or plug in your music and lie back and lap up the sun's rays. When you're thirsty, fresh juices and classic cocktails can be delivered straight to your sun bed.
Sunsets in Santorini are some of the best in the world and Sun Rocks provides a spectacular setting to enjoy them. Order a cocktail or glass of Santorini wine, sit back and watch as the sky turns from light pink to a bright burnt orange.
Rooms and suites have a minimalist design, and all have verandas that overlook the caldera. Double Rooms are compact but comfortable, Junior Suites have a living area, and Superior Suites feature a private outdoor Jacuzzi.
