This is one of the cave rooms of the stunning Divani Cave Experience Hotel in Santorini

Cave hotels in Santorini are basically hotels that are transformed old traditional Santorini houses carved on the volcanic rock of the island. Most of these hotels are located in Oia, in Imerovigli, and the capital of Santorini, Fira. They are actually very similar to the cave hotels in Cappadocia but quite different to the cave hotels in Mykonos, as these one are more designed than naturally built, like the ones in Santorini.

BUT ALSO CHECK:

Back in the day, Santorini’s residents had to break the rock to create their houses that would be cool in the summer and protected from the strong winter winds. The Best Cave Hotels in Santorini are also some of the most impressive hotels in the world, and you will obviously have to pay a premium price for a room in them (if money is an issue here is a list of the best Santorini cheap hotels).

Most of the hotels on this list offer amazing cave suites that have been fully redecorated and are equipped with all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel or from 5 Star Hotels in Santorini.

Most of them also offer a hot tub or a private cave pool. It goes without saying that almost all cave hotels in Santorini offer breathtaking views of the caldera and the volcano through a private balcony along with all the usual facilities such as flat TV screens and free wifi.

WHERE TO STAY IN SANTORINI

You are probably already aware that the famous views of Santorini overlooking the famous sunset and the volcano do not come at low prices. If you cannot afford any of these, you should look at the beach hotels of Santorini, but if you can afford those stunning views, I highly recommend staying in Imerovigli instead of in Oia.

where to stay in santorini

The best area to stay in Santorini is the west coast side which has the best uninterrupted world-famous views of the volcano, the caldera, and the incredible sunsets.

CONCLUSION

I truly believe that by staying in a cave hotel in Santorini you will be experiencing one of the most amazing accommodations in your life. These are not just some cave hotels carved on the cliffside volcanic rocks with spectacular views of the caldera. These are luxury boutique hotels with excellent service and overall great attentive staff. It also goes without saying that these are some of the most romantic hotels in Santorini and can be incredible choices for a honeymoon in Santorini.

  1. Pavlos,
    Do u have several recommendations of cave lodgings for my wife and me to consider? We r planning to b on Santorini n June 2024. Specifically we want to b n Oia. There r SO SO many options!! We would love someone like yourself (who is so familiar with the Oia area) to give us ideas from your knowledge and familiarity.
    Thanks for any lodging ideas u can give.
    Buddy

    • I am sure this could be accommodated by asking directly the hotels themselves to be honest but I son’t see why not. To be fair most of these cave hotels in Santorini market to couples or honeymooners but they are totally fine rooms for a group of friends and even families.
