Santorini Island in Greece has a lot of history, interesting and ancient landmarks and a legendary mysticism – but that’s all just useless info when what you are really after is heaven on earth. And if it’s heaven you’re after, then Santorini should be your next destination – decadent, breathtaking in views and vibe and a collection of quaint villages guaranteed to make memories for life.
Fira, Oia, Imerovigli, Perissa and Karderados are just a few of the many villages in Santorini. Each offer its own gem, from hillside views littered with white washed houses to vast panoramic views of the ocean and the unspoilt night sky.
If you are looking for luxury and tranquillity then Aigialos Hotel close to the town of Fira is the ideal place to stay. Along with the usual luxury amenities you’ll also benefit from the rooftop and balcony sunbathing areas overlooking the blue Aegean Sea. The Aigialos only has 17 rooms so you can be assured of some privacy and along with the exceptional food on offer and hospitality, your stay here will be well worth it.
Another option is definitely Ikies , a small 11 room hotel in Oia. This exclusive venue will set you back a few but it’s well worth it. With smaller rooms but more than adequate staff, Ikies will have your every need on their priority list. The apartments, or houses at Ikies, are carved into the cliffs of Caldera. Enjoy private steam rooms or hot tubs – that’s if you can move away from the almost comatose-like relaxation you’ll experience here.
Sometimes getting away from it all is just what you need to realise that there is a world outside of your day-to-day life – and Santorini is just one of the world’s most beautiful islands and soul healing sanctuary.
