The 13 Best Boutique Hotels in Santorini

1. Katikies – Oia
The liveliest hotel in Oia. Awesome pools, great service, 5-star vibe. Hasapiko (Oia’s funkiest bar) is a 10 minute walk away. Only caveat: could feel a bit too trendy for some.

2. Andronis Luxury Suites
Relaxing feel with great views and drinks. A bit more central (and it’s busier just out the door) than Katikies. The restaurant here is one of the most romantic on Santorini (but book early, there are only a handful of tables).

3. Aspaki by Art Maisons
The best caldera view of any Oia hotel – it’s located out on a perch that gives incredible all-around views. This small church sits just above the hotel. Suites have private hot tubs with great views.

4. Esperas – Oia
One of the few Oia hotels (and the only one listed here) with sunset views. Great restaurant with a fun evening scene.

5. San Antonio and Aenaon Villas
I took this pic on a morning walk from Fira to Oia. The closer hotel is San Antonio and the farther is Aenaon. They’re both wonderful. The one drawback (for some visitors) is there’s nothing much nearby – though there is a bus stop right on the road in front of the hotels. These are two of the best hotels for a quiet secluded visit.

6. Cavo Tagoo – Imerovigli
The newest 5-star hotel on Santorini. Quiet location on the path north of Imerovigli (to Oia). 12 minute walk to Imerovigli. Service here is impeccable.

7. West East Suites – Imerovigli
Large trendy suites with incredible views. It’s a 10 minute walk outside of Imerovigli (where there are many fantastic restaurants). Drinks and music are going all day at the beautiful pool.

8. Honeymoon Petra Villa – Imerovigli
Beautiful spot overlooking the volcano in the center of the caldera (but no sunset views). Rooms have a variety of shapes, sizes, and views so do some research so you’re not disappointed.

9. Sun Rocks – Imerovigli
Adults only hotel with a magnificent perch on the caldera’s edge. A fun easy-going vibe is the rule here. Pool and views are wonderful.

10. Tsitouras Collection – Firostefani
The friendliest boutique hotel on Santorini. If you want luxury without the attitude this is the place. Not many steps to access this hotel from the road so a good choice if you have trouble with stairs.

11. Belvedere – Firostefani
Get the quieter vibe and better views of Firostefani – but the shops and nightlife of Fira are just a 5 minute walk away (downhill to Fira, uphill coming back). Great pool and wonderful, jaw-dropping views.

12. Cosmopolitan Suites – Fira
The best boutique hotel on Santorini for easy access to clubs and nightlife. The pool is awesome and I’ve been known to down a bottle of wine over the course of an afternoon as I sit at the edge and stare out into the caldera. Highly recommended.

13. Keti – Fira
This is the king suite with private whirlpool and it’s one of the best deals on the island. Awesome for those who want privacy (located down at the bottom of the hotel with just one nearby room) but still want to be close to the action of Fira. I’ll admit the free breakfast here sucks but who cares, I still love this place.Best Boutique Hotels with plunge pool and privacy on Santorini: Keti Hotel close to shopping and nightlife in Fira.

2 Questions and Comments

  1. Boutique Hotel in Oia with Sunset View / First Choice Fully Booked

    I know you recommended Esperas for a sunset view but they are sold out for our dates in July, 2017. Do any other hotels have sunset views? Preferably a boutique/romantic hotel, 4+ stars. Thanks!
