Highs + Lows

  • Sangria the moment you walk in the door.

  • Almost every room has their own private balcony complete with sweeping views of the volcano and caldera. Prep for those famous Santorini sunsets (or moonsets, depending on when you go) with a glass of local red wine and your favorite person.

  • Free breakfast set up each morning on your balcony. Perfection.

  • This is a photographer's dream with photo ops. at every corner. Be prepared to potentially photobomb other tourists stopping in front of the hotel grasping for that last sunset shot.
