From cave-style inns built into the cliffs to stunning properties perched high above the caldera, these five accommodations rank among our favorite honeymoon lodging spots on the gorgeous island of Santorini, Greece.
Situated high on a cliff overlooking the sparkling Aegean Sea, Perivolas Hotel is easily one of Greece's most peaceful and romantic resorts. In addition to breathtaking views, the property is home to terraced gardens, cave-style rooms (created out of 300-year-old caves) with whitewashed walls, a notable restaurant, a wellness center with spa services, and - of course - an infinity pool.
Located just minutes on foot from Oia's main cobblestone pedestrian-only street, Chelidonia is comprised of renovated cave homes built directly into the island's cliffs. The 16 villas each have a private balcony with kitchenettes and unspoiled views of the sea - and even the White Mountains of Crete on a clear day.
Situated on the northwestern tip of Santorini in the enchanting village of Oia, Canaves Hotel features white cave-style houses that cling to the cliffside, providing outstanding views of the Aegean and caldera below. Meanwhile, the service at this acclaimed property is excellent, the rooms are extremely comfortable, and the grounds are breathtaking. Amenities include a swimming pool, bar, library, Wi-Fi, and free parking. The property also boasts an incredible honeymoon suite with an outdoor river-like Jacuzzi, perfect for unforgettable moments of privacy and romance.
This stunning property in Imerovigli is quite ideal for its location between Oia and Fira. The intimate hotel has 22 luxury apartments complete with marble floors, balconies, and elegant bathrooms. Meanwhile, the property boasts several restaurants and lounges, plus an outdoor pool and relaxing spa. It's luxurious yet simple, and a perfect spot to enjoy your honeymoon together.
We're huge fans of this tiny boutique property in Oia. The hotel is built into the island's cliffs and is overall quiet, personal, and super romantic. Top highlights include an outdoor infinity pool, cave-style accommodations, and sweeping views of the sea.
