One of the world’s most jaw-dropping images of hotel infinity pools have been taken on Santorini. With only 13 rooms and seven suites, here guests receive the undivided attention of staff. Even before you arrive, questions might include, Would you like to organize a romantic surprise for your partner? Or, do you want your bathrobe personalized with your initials? Of course, the hotel’s seamless pool, perched like a bird’s nest over the island’s volcanic caldera and the blue hues of the Aegean, is pretty unforgettable as well.
Guests spend much of their time lounging around the pool and dining outdoors on a variety of dramatic terraces. All the rooms have views of the sea. Completed in 2008, the property still feels fresh and modern; rooms are all-white with brushed concrete floors, clean lines, and Vitra furniture. In 2012, for VIP guests, the hotel added a stand-alone villa with two bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a private entrance and swimming pool.
