Stay at a Cave Hotel in Santorini
Santorini boasts a plethora of luxurious romantic hotels, resorts and villas. Many of which offer private balconies or terraces overlooking the sea. Imagine waking up to the sound of waves and enjoying a private breakfast with your loved one against the backdrop of the Aegean Sea.
Right next to a serene church and down a fair few steps is the Canaves Oia Hotel and Suites. Rooms and suites are actually set within the caves all white washed and polished to five star perfection. You and your gorgeous international escort can expect lazy days lounging by your own private plunge pool or working your way through the cocktail menu at the hotels swim up bar.
The views from this hotel are simply spectacular. Whether you are enjoying a relaxed breakfast or a couple of sundowners you will be blown away by the colour of the sky and sea. Oia is a little quieter than Fira the capital, perfect for a private romantic stay. The street right at the top of the hotel still has plenty of designer stores, small tavernas and gift shops if you wanted to explore your surroundings. Getting around the island is easy via taxi.
Santorini is a seasonal island much like Ibiza. The season starts in April and closes in November. Much of the staff are from mainland Greek and extremely proud and passionate about their place of work. It certainly shows. The staff and friendly and attentive. It certainly shows.
Additionally, the spa is not to be missed. As well as the usual massages and facials they have their very own hanmam. An extra touch of luxury is that they use Cinq Mondes and Valmont products. A real treat for you and your beautiful companion to enjoy.
Caves not your thing?
Then perhaps check into a fabulous 5 star resort, from an exclusive hotel group that you may have visited elsewhere in the world such as Nobu. Sometimes you just want all your creature comfort’s and excellent service with no surprises. Nobu Hotels much like their restaurants always deliver a consistently splendid experience.
If you wanted a bit of familiarity then the Nobu Hotel is unadulterated luxury. Arguably the best sunset and panoramic views in Santorini is atop Skaros Rock. Nobu, Santorini is between Oia to Imerovigli. You will have a winding, steep car journey to reach this stunning five star resort. It is no wonder the area is so popular with hikers. If you and your beautiful companion fancy getting your steps in then you will certainly burn some calories climbing the gradients here.
Once you reach Nobu prepared to be feel instantly relaxed. The zen like decor and well designed rooms and suites are incredibly calming. Five villas at Nobu boast their own private pools. It is a beautiful property, very in keeping with it’s natural surroundings. The huge pool still manages to still feel private even though it is a vast size. In the day it is a relaxing haven but at 5pm a house DJ plays a few tracks as the sundowners flow freely.
As one would expect there is plenty of sushi and sashimi on the menu for those that can only take so many gyros’. There is no spa here but treatments are available in your suite on request. The beauty of Santorini really is the weather, you are very much encouraged to kick back and enjoy leisurely breakfasts, sunbathing and long lazy dinners. If you and your gorgeous companion wanted to keep in shape then as with most Nobu hotels they have a state of the art gym available 24 hours a day.
Prefer somewhere more private?
Then maybe a villa is more to your taste. Somewhere you and your gorgeous companion can feel as if you are locals for a few days. Albeit in a multi million euro turn key development at the top of a mountain overlooking the azure blue Aegean Sea and the dormant volcanoes.
