Sun Rocks is a couples-only boutique hotel with an intimate atmosphere and elegant, stylish décor. As the hotel is sculpted from the rock face all rooms are unique, with free-form stairs, vaulted ceilings and whitewashed rooms of contemporary design, blended with traditional Cycladic aesthetics. Each room and suite also has a private terrace overlooking the blue waters of the Aegean Sea.
Sun Rocks' romantic setting makes the hotel a magnet for honeymooners, and it is therefore a couples-only retreat.

When to go
Santorini is a summer destination, and hotels only operate between late April to late October. On average, the warmest months of the year are July and August, when the beaches and towns are more crowded with other visitors. June and September are good months to visit, when the island is quieter but temperatures are still high.
