Our favourite rooms
There are only four suites and a private villa to choose from, and each has its own charms. If water temperature’s important to you (and you enjoy nit-picking), the plunge pools in the Garden and Herb suites are four degrees warmer than the (bigger) pools in Cactus and Vine. Cactus is closest to the roadside, but we were wooed by its outdoor space, which includes a communal table and sunken sitting area, as well as the private pool. Right at the top of the hotel, the Summit Villa has the loftiest views and the most secluded location.
There’s no communal pool, just the one in your suite.
There won’t be many other guests to compete with, so anything goes – you’ll even be able to wear heels, unlike at most other precipitous Santorini properties.
Spa therapists, personal trainers and yoga or Pilates teachers can drop by your suite.
Ages 14 and up are welcome. There are sofa beds in three of the suites and in the private villa; the cost for an extra person is 25 per cent of the stay.
The hotel has organic kitchen gardens, everything that can be is recycled or composted, solar power is used, and all cleaning products are biodegradable.
