A few minutes walk from the charming town of Oia, the best place on the island to watch the sun set
Extensive spa offering a range of treatments
Individually designed rooms in a Cycladic style
Infinity pool overlooking the caldera and the Aegean sea
Poised on the cliff side overlooking the caldera, Katikies Kirini features simple yet beautifully-finished suites in the traditional Cycladic style. Each of the suites has its own private terrace with spectacular views of the volcano islands and across the turquoise waters of the Aegean.
The suites themselves are carved into the rock face and as such each one is unique in size and shape. All are painted white and artfully decorated to ensure the rooms feel bright and airy. The hotel is spread over several levels, leading down to the swimming pool and lounge area, still set high above the sea. The views are stunning from every aspect while the patio bar is an ideal place to relax in the early evening with a cocktail as the light fades.
The Santorini sunset is one of the most iconic images of the island and the best place to see the sun dip into the ocean is the western tip of Oia. This picturesque town is just a short stroll from the hotel and its winding cobbled streets are lined with boutiques and traditional restaurants.
The spa is renowned as one of the best on the island, featuring a range of treatments, highly trained staff and state of the art equipment. This relaxing underground oasis is set into the heart of the cliff side with several spacious treatment rooms and heated pools.
Anthos Restaurant has an intimate and romantic setting, with a fantastic selection of local and international wines. Dishes have a Greek and Mediterranean focus, and where possible use seasonal products that are local to the island. Guests can also choose to dine on their own private terrace, overlooking the sea.
