Perched right at the peak of the caldera's rim, Katikies Chromata has the best seat in the house on Santorini. Chromata takes its name from the Greek for 'colours', a nod to the blue sky and Aegean Sea, charcoal-black caldera cliffs and white sugar-cube villages you can spot from the hotel's lofty vantage point.
Taking up residence in an 11th-century Catholic monastery, Katikies Garden is a tranquil retreat tucked away among the lanes of Santorini's capital, Fira. Both couples and families will find this an irresistible hideaway, an oasis of relaxation amid Fira's snaking alleyways.
Katikies Hotel Santorini Oia
The luxury boutique hotel Katikies Santorini is right in the thick of hip, happening and handsome Oia, a glamorous address that is Santorini’s answer to Knightsbridge. And if Oia can be described using those three Hs, then Katikies Santorini excels in a trio of S words: sunsets, sea views and swimming pools.
Clinging to a volcanic cliffside on the outskirts of Santorini’s poster-child village of Oia, Katikies Kirini manages to blend total serenity with one of Greece’s trendiest postcodes. Its location is hard to beat, with the vistas of Santorini’s caldera and the azure Aegean Sea available from every room of a truly heavenly calibre.
St Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas
Owning a prime position on Crete's eastern coast, St. Nicolas Bay is understated luxury at its very best. The views speak for themselves, with the resort overlooking the glittering Mirabello Bay and lying just a 20-minute stroll from the charming waterfront town of Agios Nikolaos.
Numo Ierapetra, Crete
The phrase ‘off the beaten track’ can often be overused these days but it couldn’t be truer of Numo Ierapetra, a resort tucked far away from Crete’s main tourist trail on its south-eastern coast. Though it's a resort by name, the heart, soul and feel of Numo Ierapetra is akin to the traditional Cretan villages dotted around this part of the island – just with a modern twist.
