Bottom Line

The 23-room Petit Palace Suites Hotel really delivers when it comes to views -- there are stunning sea and caldera vistas from immaculately finished, traditionally styled terraces. There's no getting away from the incredible outlook: the swimming pool, restaurant, and lounge bar are all overlooking the Aegean. Rooms too feature private sea-view terraces, some with their own pool or hot tub. Some suites are a little simple in the decor department for an upscale property, but in-room amenities are ample. Location may feel a little secluded for some, so to be nearer to town check out the similarly priced Aressana Spa Hotel and Suites.

Petit Palace Suites Hotel

Scene

Immaculately finished, traditional cliff-side luxurious boutique

A bright white entrance flanked by potted shrubs frames the picture-perfect views and ushers guests into the Petit Palace Suites Hotel. A staircase leads down through the typically pristine Santorinian architecture and past walls constructed from local volcanic rock, and into the small, simple reception area. Five tiers of terracing are built into the cliff-face providing ample vantage points for the breathtaking Aegean vistas. The vibe is luxurious with a close-to-flawless finish that continues through public areas, and so attracts young honeymooners looking for that perfect romantic setting, and well-heeled tourists happy to splash out on impeccably presented accommodation.

Location

Set just off the main Fira-Pyrgos road about a mile and a half from both

The Petit Palace Suites Hotel is located just off the main Fira-Pyrgos road overlooking the Aegean Sea on the west coast of Santorini. It is about a mile and a half south of the island's capital, Fira, and about the same distance again to the town of Pyrgos. The hotel operates a shuttle service into Fira, though it is fairly limited. Access from the airport is easy -- just a few miles by taxi -- and there is a bus stop a couple minutes walk away. For those arriving by boat, the main port is about four miles away.

Rooms

Spacious, modern suites open to private terraces and sea views

The Petit Palace Suites Hotel has 23 spacious suites, most of which are decorated in clean, fresh tones with smart contemporary furnishings and cool tiled floors. Rooms open onto a private terrace or balcony, while some have hot tubs or even private swimming pools, and all overlooking the Aegean Sea. In-room tech includes free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TV with satellite channels, while bathrooms all have hydro-massage tubs, high-end toiletries, robes, and slippers. The decor in some lower-end rooms is a little basic for a high-end hotel.

Features

Pool with spacious sunbathing terrace and loungers

The hotel features a relatively (for Santorini) large swimming pool surrounded by ample sunbathing terrace with loungers and parasols, all overlooking the sea. The on-site restaurant serves breakfast each morning (which can also be taken in-room), and a menu of Mediterranean-inspired dishes throughout the day. There is a small bar and lovely lounge area, and wine tasting events give guests a change to sample Santorinian wines and spirits. Unusual for this type of hotel, there is an elevator that covers all five floors of the property.
