Best Santorini hotels for honeymooners

Santorini is one of those places where the choice of a hotel is very important, especially if you plan to visit here during your honeymoon. The fact is that in many European cities (Paris, London, Rome, etc.) you will spend most of the day outside the hotel, exploring the famous sites. After the stress of planning the wedding and the big day itself, people come to Santorini to unwind and lay in the sun, enjoying the landscape and the view of the volcano.

Here are just a few hotels that are worth mentioning when choosing your accommodation in Santorini.

Perivolas hotel is located in the quieter part of Oia. It offers multiple cave houses, some with private pools. Staying here you can enjoy each other’s company and the most amazing views of the village and the sunset, sipping wine on your private terrace.

Canaves Suites in Oia also has cave rooms. Many rooms have a private pool. There is also an infinity pool that offers incredible views, a restaurant and a bar. This is one of the hotels that you might want to stay in for the whole duration of your visit to Santorini and not even venture into the outside world :)

Grace hotel in Imerovigli is one of the best in Santorini. This hotel offers breathtaking views of the volcano, the sunset and the Skaros rock. The design of each room is unique. The dining experience at the Michelin star awarded Varoulko restaurant is unforgettable.

Astra Suites is currently listed in the Top 25 Hotels of the World, as chosen by TripAdvisor members. It was also named the “Most Romantic hotel in the world” in 2017. It has a huge pool overlooking the volcano which offers the opportunity to enjoy the famous Santorini sunset with comfort.

San Antonio hotel is located between Imerovigli and Oia. This hotel is suitable for those who want a sense of privacy. It’s perfect for a romantic honeymoon. Because of the hotel’s location, if you want to thoroughly explore the sights, you will have to rent a car.

Distinctive features of the Cosmopolitan Suites are convenient location in the centre of Fira and the infinity pool. The rooms here are small, but the views more than make up for that. When you stay at the Cosmopolitan Suites Hotel, you will have the best of what Fira has to offer at your fingertips for a wonderful travel experience.

Vedema Resort is located in the peaceful village of Megalochori, 10 minutes from Fira. It is quiet and there are very few tourists around. There are no views, but the pool is one of the largest in Santorini. The food is delicious and there are a couple of good restaurants nearby. Caldera with its magnificent views is just 5 minutes walk away.

Another option for a quiet honeymoon away from the main towns, is the Volcano View hotel. It has magnificent panoramic terraces where you can sunbathe during the day and have a romantic dinner in the evening. Fans of spa treatments will definitely like the spa centre, which has outdoor massage rooms.

Most of the top hotels in Santorini are located in the western part of the island – Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and Oia – overlooking the volcano. But if you are a beach person, why not take a look at Cavo Bianco, Costa Grand Santorini and Radisson Blu Zaffron Resort in Kamari or Anastasia Princess Luxury Residence & Spa or Aqua Blue Hotel in Perissa. Wherever you decide to stay during your stay in Santorini, I would suggest making this a part of your wedding planning – make sure to book early, the rooms could be sold out months in advance.
