What are the five best places to stay in Santorini?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The best hotels in Santorini combine luxury with amazing views of the sea and caldera. Here are five that Forbes Travel Guide recommends:
1. Katikies. Giving a heavy nod to the island’s famed whitewashed buildings, almost everything in this Oia hotel is white — even the flat-screen TVs. It’s a simple, airy feel that will make you want to get a seaside massage (which you can do here).
2. Grace Santorini. Built into a cliff top in Imerovigli, Grace Santorini offers sweeping views of the caldera. The newest accommodation at the sleek white hotel is the villa, which includes two bedrooms, a private spa with steam room, and a bi-level patio space with a private pool and outdoor fireplace.
3. Andronis Luxury Suites. Feel like a local at Andronis Luxury Suites, where you’ll stay in your own villa. They have a beautifully minimal design that incorporates classic whites, reflecting Cycladic architecture.  
4. Mystique. Situated on the cliffs of Oia, the 18 suites and villas at Mystique boast a gorgeous outdoor infinity-edge pool. There’s also a 150-year-old cellar, called “the secret wine cave,” where you can have dinner while sampling the local bottles.
5. Tsitouras Collection. The traditional hotel was built around a historic mansion that dates back to 1780. A famous Greek art collector redecorated it and updated its romantic design to accentuate the spectacular views just outside. Today, it’s made up of five freestanding cottages — each attended by its own butler staff. It’s a one-of-a-kind luxury experience; but it’s important to note that the hotel requires a two-night stay minimum and is only open from March to October.
