Our favourite rooms
For double the plunge-pool fun, pick a Grace Suite with plunge pool – you get one indoors, with a partition so it can be ocean-facing or totally private, and an extra one out on the terrace. VIP Suites are similarly endowed, only their plunge pools are bigger, and they’ve got steam rooms and some flashy light installations, too. All the rooms are chalky white, with bright cushions and rugs to break up the serenity.
The hotel has a cover-model of a heated infinity pool (the largest by the caldera), which runs along the front of the hotel, perfect for swimming and Skaros Rock-spotting at the same time; there are well-cushioned double loungers, a bar and an outdoor shower.
Brightly coloured outfits to set off your suite; it’s hard to clash with whitewash.
The hotel's enviable clifftop setting means that access is via a not insignificant number of steps – it's not ideal for travellers with restricted mobility.
Over-14s are welcome at the hotel (with the exception of The Villa, which can accommodate children of any age). Extra beds cost €200 a night.
