Sophia Luxury Suites 4.0

Imerovigli, Santorini, South Aegean
Perched on the Imerovigli hillside, the four-pearl Sophia Luxury Suites is a good choice for travelers looking for a quieter location to enjoy those caldera views. It's a convenient base to explore from on foot, being steps from the hiking trail to Oia and a 10-minute walk from Skaros Rock lookout. The nine suites have a rustic-chic style and modern amenities including air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi plus outside space with private plunge pools. All suites have a balcony, though some are shared -- all have ocean views, and some have outdoor plunge pools or hot tubs. The indoor cave pools in some of the bathrooms are a nice touch and the kitchen serves breakfast and dinner directly to your suite.

For those looking to escape the bustle of certain Santorini locales, the 27-room Astra Suites’ quiet cliff-side location is a well-regarded option. The hotel has remarkable views with rocky caldera cliffs at its sides, the Aegean Sea below, and bright blue skies above. Rooms have large personal terraces and fluffy bedding while outdoor spaces are sleek and modern. The mix of traditional architecture and colorful contemporary decor gives the property an elegant and relaxing vibe. However, considering the high number of stairs, Astra’s not ideal for those with mobility issues. The upscale San Antonio Hotel is in a secluded location far from other hotels at the narrowest point on the island of Santorini. The cliffside spot provides unobstructed views of the caldera and the Aegean Sea from its infinity pool and restaurant terrace, where a free American breakfast is served. The rooms have excellent views from their large furnished balconies too, though some open to shared terraces. Suites are more private and many have outdoor hot tubs. There's also a stunning spa built into a natural cave formation. Andronis Luxury Suites is a luxury boutique overlooking the Aegean Sea. Though Santorini and over-the-top hotels go hand-in-hand, this property has the added benefit of a location overlooking the Caldera side of the Mediterranean and it is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Oia. Each of the 22 suites includes a private hot tub; some suites are done in the traditional cave style of the island. A dramatic infinity pool overlooks the cliffs and sea below. The on-site restaurant gets good reviews for Greek food and free breakfast with local ingredients. Like most hotels in this part of the world, expect steep steps and spotty Wi-Fi access. This part of Santorini is renowned for its specular vistas, and the 14-room Andronis Boutique Hotel takes full advantage of its privileged position -- there are few places in the hotel without gorgeous sea views. Cave-like rooms are luxurious and really quite special, as are bathrooms and private balconies. The pool isn't huge, but is lined with sunbeds overlooking the all-important panorama. All in all, it's luxury accommodation at a luxury price. A lovely boutique property, Pezoules is set into Oia's lower caldera cliffs, giving guests sweeping views of the Aegean. With only six rooms -- many designed in a cave-like style -- it is a small, quiet, and personal property ideal for couples. Rooms mimic the hotel's chic blend of traditional architecture and minimalism and feature ergonomic Dimstel mattresses. Slim on the features but with more than the nearby Aris Caves, this property has a small infinity pool with an even smaller deck and a tiny pool bar serving snacks and drinks. The experience is best suited for travelers who want to explore the surrounding area but come back to a quiet room, and overall this is a gorgeous property with upscale rooms and an authentic Greek island vibe. What differentiates four-pearl Rocabella Deluxe Suites & Spa Santorini from most of the other luxury properties on the island is that it has four swimming pools, a full spa, and two restaurants; most hotels in this price range have just one pool and restaurant, and spas are even more rare. However, three of the pools (including the one with an infinity edge) are narrow. Views of the Aegean Sea can be admired from beds and balconies in the spacious rooms. Rocabella is located on the picture-perfect Caldera side of the Aegean Sea, off the beaten path between Fira and Oia. Some find it isolating while others appreciate the escape from crowds. The Altana Traditional Houses is an upscale boutique property perched high above Santorini with spectacular caldera views. This restored 1779 captain's house is built into the cliffside, and features sundecks throughout and a small pool. The 10 rooms have whitewashed walls and private terraces overlooking the Aegean, and some have jetted tubs. The Altana's organic farm provides produce for its cafe, serving traditional dishes along with cocktails and local wine. Breakfast is included (and served until late), featuring homemade Greek items. The vibe at the hotel is relaxed and romantic, with no TVs on the premises, and a quiet location in Imerovigli between Fira and Oia. The 23-room Belvedere Santorini is a small four-pearl hotel set on the bluffs of Firostefani, overlooking the Aegean with a coastal cobblestone pathway that leads to Fira’s shops, galleries, and restaurants. Rooms are decorated in stylish white furnishings and have terraces with Aegean views. Honeymoon Suites feature fireplaces in sitting areas; some suites also have kitchenettes. There's an outdoor pool with amazing sea views from surrounding lounge chairs and a charming wine cellar in the basement. However, there's no on-site restaurant or spa, so it may be worth comparing rates at the Lilium Villas Santorini, which has both. The four-pearl Aqua Luxury Suites is a stylish boutique hotel in quieter Imerovigli -- one of the island's top spots for caldera views. Its 25 suites have individual layouts and styles, though the rustic look is universal, and configurations span from double rooms to two-bedroom Grand Suites with private plunge pools. The shared pool is small, but the deck has a variety of seating and a snack bar serves well-received local specials. Welcome features at this three-and-a-half-pearl property include a freshly prepared breakfast delivered to your suite, free Wi-Fi, and a good selection of relaxing spa treatments. The location away from the crowds of Oia or Fira is a boon for many, but those wanting to be closer to the action could consider Oia Mare Villas as good alternative. Celestia Grand Villas is a high-end villa complex located on a cliff top just south of Fira town. As a villa-only property there's little in the way of common space, though all seven units feel super-secluded with large terraces and private pools overlooking the iconic caldera. An on-site chef provides in-villa dining throughout the day, as well as alfresco candlelit dinners, though there's nowhere else to eat within walking distance. Those who'd prefer to be a little nearer the action should check out Aria Suites close to Fira center, but for those seeking luxury and privacy with minimum distractions, this place could be just perfect.
