imerovigli hotels feat 1

Imerovigli is probably the town/area of Santorini with the most impressive hotels. This list has all the top ranked Imerovigli hotels in Santorini.

I’m always saying to people visiting the island that Imerovigli is probably the best place to stay in Santorini, because you get these amazing famous views to the caldera, you don’t get millions of tourists on your rooftop, you have amazing views to the sunset and you have awesome hotel and suites options.

Hands down, Imerovigli is the area of Santorini with some of the most seclusive, quiet, romantic and impressive hotels on the island.

It is probably the best option for being more seclusive and quiet without any tourist eyes you may have in Oia.

In most of the Imerovigli hotels you will probably get the best private jacuzzis and pools on the island so it’s also a great option for honeymoons or romantic getaways, as well.

Best Hotels in Oia >
Best Hotels in Fira >


  • Imerovigli is a small quiet village 20mins walk from the capital town Fira

  • Imerovigli has some of the best and most luxurious hotels of the island and it can be a great option if you want to avoid the crowded and very touristic Oia or you don’t want to be at the capital Fira

  • Imerovigli has amazing views to the caldera/volcano but not direct views to the famous Santorini sunsets as its viewing direction is slightly towards the inside of the volcanic lagoon and not on the west, where the sun is setting.

  • Best Private Villa in Imerovigli : Grace Villa (seriously?)

Booking.com is the website with the most available rooms and Private Villas in Athens, Santorini , Mykonos & Crete (more than Airbnb!)

Ferryhopper is the best website to book your ferry tickets or check the timetables for Santorini, Mykonos , Crete & all greek islands

Get Your Guide has the best and largest variety of Tours in Athens and the greek islands (Santorini, Mykonos, Crete etc)

Rentalcars is the easiest way to rent a car or a quad for Greece with thousands of available options

Expedia has all the available flights to and from the greek islands

So…without further ado, here are my recommendations of the Best Imerovigli Hotels of Santorini (in random order) :

1. Hotel San Antonio

San Antonio is one of the most stunning hotels of Santorini

Hotel San Antonio and its suites are romantically decorated and enjoy views of the caldera from their veranda. San Antonio is one of the most photographed hotels of the island but it comes at a hefty price, so be warned.

2. Astra Suites

Astra Suites has amazing caldera views to the sunsets

Astra Suites is located on the edge of the cliffs of Imerovigli and its suites and rooms have some of the best views of the Caldera and the volcano lagoon. All the suites have their own private balcony where the breakfast is brought to you every morning (that can be the ultimate relaxing experience). Some people say that the sunset views from the Astra Suites is even better than watching it is Oia. Can’t argue that… When you are searching for luxury in Santorini, you can’t go wrong with Astra Suites as it’s famously one the best Imerovigli hotels.

3. Altana Traditional Houses and Suites

Altana Traditional Houses and Suites is also located in Imerovigli and it is literally a transformed 1700’s cave house (these were literally carved into the volcanic rocks overlooking the sea). It features an amazing swimming pool and some of the best built-in comfy beds of the island.

4. Aliko Luxury Suites

7. Andronis Concept Wellness Resort

Andronis is a new addition to Imerovigli with a unique and different design

Andronis Concept Wellness Resort is a fairly newly built hotel and spa resort that is slightly outside of Imerovigli but in the same neighbourhood. It really deserves to be on this list as it offers a unique wellness concept with an impressive spa and amazing private swimming pools with large comfy sunbeds everywhere.

8. Cavo Tagoo Santorini

The floating sunbeds of Cavo Tagoo are all over Instagram

Cavo Tagoo Santorini is just the Santorini version of the famous Cavo Tagoo Hotel in Mykonos, so there are no surprises here: stunning views, incredible service and instagrammable swimming pools with celebrity treatment 24/7.
