Reigning at the top destination charts worldwide, Santorini Greece is an incontestable choice for experiencing the very essence of Greek summer. Combining the centuries old cycladic traditions with luxurious aesthetics and brimming with romantic atmosphere, it is no wonder why so many travellers return to relive their summer memories. Santorini hotels are among the most lavish and fancy in the Cyclades; an excellent destination for honeymooners and couples. We have carefully compiled this guide of the island’s lodging alternatives, divided into clear categories for your convenience.
Santorini is a hotel oriented holiday destination. This means that accommodation holds a significant role in your overall experience of the island. Booking the lodging that is closest to your personal taste ensures a much more pleasant stay. Santorini is a special place and although we connect islands primarily with open water swimming and sandy beaches, this beauty offers breathtaking views unlike any other of her cycladic sisters. What better way to take in an exquisite seascape than from the comfort of your own private space? Hard to surpass. Offering a wide selection of boutique hotels, suites, and villas situated in different villages and towns, you can choose a lively nightlife or a relaxing tranquil place for your family. It is important to mention that accommodation in Santorini is high-priced compared to other Greek islands, and daily expenses can compare to that of big European cities; all in all, it will be money well spent.

Santorini has become synonymous with luxury vacation. The island possesses a very romantic atmosphere and the vast majority of hotels pursue offering lavish stays and posh, 5-star services. This is one of the reasons why honeymooners choose Santorini as their destination. Even if you are not that type of traveler, spending some extra money on your accommodation is strongly recommended when visiting Santorini. Pampering yourself with infinite sea views in a comfortable and relaxing environment is the best way to experience this one of a kind volcanic island.
Most of the luxury hotels are located in the villages across the caldera (Oia, Fira, Imerovigli, and Firostefani) and are mainly small boutique hotels with no more than 10 suites. Most of the suites have terraces with splendid views of the Aegean sea and the volcano as well as private pools, jetted tubs, or jacuzzis. An estimated price range for a luxury room begins from €400 and can reach a few thousand euros per day. It depends on the location, views, services, and private amenities such as swimming pools and jetted tubs.
Our recommendations for luxury hotels: Katoikies, Canaves Oia Luxury, Andronis Boutique, Katoikies Chromata, Pegasus Suites and Spa, Homeric Poems, Celestia Grand and more.
Affordable luxury options can be located on the island, both in the caldera villages (Oia, Fira, Imerovigli, and Firostefani) as well as in the villages close to the beach. Sometimes a luxury hotel offers some of its rooms at more approachable prices. The reason for that usually falls under categories of size (may be smaller than the other rooms), more simple and minimal amenities, or even because of a less privileged sea view. Also, there are hotels on the island that prefer to focus exclusively on travelers wanting to experience a luxury lifestyle but at a more reasonable price. Those boutique hotels have almost the same characteristics as luxury hotels with small details, basically on private amenities, interior design, location, and services that slightly lower the price. An estimated price range for affordable luxury accommodation is €220- €350 per night. Lastly, another factor that might affect pricing is the season. Accommodation during lower seasons such as spring and autumn is cheaper than in summer.
Our recommendations for affordable luxury hotels: Ilioperato, Xenones Filotera, Regina Mare, Agali House, Athermi and more.
Santorini has a number of hotels that even though they may not be in the lavish spectrum, they also avoid being categorized as budget options. The aspect that mostly defines this category is that they lack that worldwide famous volcano and sea view or the 5-stars services and top-notch private amenities. A few of them are located in the caldera villages, but do not possess the undisturbed sea views of other, more location favored hotels. The vast majority of value for money hotels can easily be found farther away from the tourist crowds, in towns such as Pyrgos, Megalochori, or closer to the beaches of Kamari and Perissa. This key factor has kept their pricing on moderate levels. The hotels are in excellent condition, with lovely, comfortable rooms and ample outdoor spaces with a shared swimming pool. The setting is that of a cozy, more casual hotel that could also be spotted on other Greek islands. The price range for these hotels is approximately €120- €220 per night.
Our recommendations for value for money hotels: Casa Florina, Aqua Blue, Meli Meli, Dream Island, Aria Lito, Finikia Palace, Agnadema and more.
There are numerous villas built on the island in many locations. Some of them are parts of an upscale complex, while others are individual buildings. Renting a villa is a good idea for those seeking privacy and luxury combined with a spacious environment. Since Santorini is a honeymoon oriented destination, many room types are on the smaller side and can only efficiently accommodate couples. Furthermore, it is very common for hotels to be adult-exclusive. This makes a villa an ideal option for big groups of friends. In terms of price, although it might cost more than a room or suite for 2, it is really reasonable when you are travelling and splitting the expenses with more than 4 people in a group arrangement. Most of the villas can accommodate a minimum of 4 individuals. The majority of villas on the island consist of a number of comfortable bedrooms, a sitting room that is usually separated from the dining room, a roomy kitchen, a swimming pool and a terrace. Occasionally they may be equipped with a serene garden and parking space. Most of them are two-storey buildings. Depending on the location they can also be graced with beautiful sea views. Lastly, due to their considerable size, they are regarded as a fitting holiday option for travelers that want to spend time relaxing and dining at home.
Our recommendations for villas: Windmill villas, Villa Agrikoia, Ducato Wine Villas, Aloia Villas, Aenaon villas, Hemera Villa and more.
Although Santorini is not considered a cheap destination, compared to other Greek islands, it offers some budget accommodation options. You will need to make compromises regarding the location and sea views, but you will find nice and clean rooms to stay. The interior decoration may be a bit oldy but if you just want a nice room to sleep and spend more time outdoors exploring the island instead, then an average budget hotel can perfectly fit your needs. The price range for budget hotels ranges from €70 to €120 per night.
Our recommendations for budget hotels: Costa Marina Villas, Anna traditional apartments, Reverie, Blue Bay villas, Nikolas Hotel and more.
If you are a design enthusiast, thrilled for places with a particular style to host your vacation, then Santorini should gain a place in your bucket list! Here, you can find some of the finest examples of cycladic architecture blending harmoniously with the volcanic origins of the island and the Aegean sea that surrounds it. The cubic-shaped whitewashed houses, along with the cave houses crafted in the cliffs place Santorini’s villages among the most interesting architectural regions in Europe. The Cycladic building principles dictate white and simple lines, while strict laws preserve its traditional architecture and heritage. In Santorini you will encounter minimalism at its finest. Discrete modern touches from prestigious and acclaimed interior designers and architects underline the uniqueness of a setting and turn it into a masterpiece. Most hotels in Santorini adhere to the Cycladic architecture principles. Some of them were old structures that got restored and repurposed into luxury hotels, while others were built from scratch.
Our recommendations for Design hotels: Kimini, Villa Santorini 520, Tholos Resort, Anemolia villa, Heritage Villas, North Luxury Villas, Canaves and more.
Infinity pools are considered the modern signature structures of Santorini. They are parts of hotels and villas and are mostly located in the villages of the caldera: Oia, Imerovigli, and Fira. The characteristic of these pools is that they create an illusion that they are on the same level as the sea. This optical trick derives from their architecture, being built at the edge of the cliff overlooking the Aegean sea. They are very photogenic and create a peaceful atmosphere. Some hotels have larger pools than others or more compelling views. We have created a selection of the best hotels with infinity pools in Santorini. It is strongly recommended to book a hotel with a swimming pool when visiting Santorini since the island is primarily known for its amazing sea views. Hardly anything beats the feeling of serenity and freedom created by swimming in a private balcony-shaped pool and savoring a fine wine, while the phenomenal Santorini’s sunset takes place in front of you like a live work of art.
Our recommendations for hotels with infinity pools: Pegasus suites and spa, Homeric poems, Cosmopolitan suites, Grace Hotel and more.
In the last few years, this novelty has bloomed in Santorini and continues to attract thousands of travellers every summer; and justifiably so. This new design trend on the island that is very popular among honeymooners, travel bloggers, and instagrammers are known as cave pools. These types of pools are mostly located in the caldera villages such as Oia, Imerovigli, and Fira. Part of them is crafted in the cliff creating an atmosphere of a cave-built-in pool and part of them is outdoors overlooking the famous caldera. It is a very photogenic and aesthetically satisfying structure, adding a refreshing and completely unique feature of accommodation in Santorini. Many yogis and meditation gurus have chosen them as a wellness enhancing resort.
Our recommendations for hotels with infinity pools: Pegasus suites and spa, Sun rocks, Dana villas, Fanari villas and more.
