The Top 10 Best Hotels of Imerovigli in Santorini for 2017

by | May 3, 2017

imerovigli santorini hotelsImerovigli is probably the town/area of Santorini with the most impressive hotels

I’m always saying to people visiting the island that Imerovigli is probably the best option to stay 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 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 Imerovigli you 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.

  • Imerovigli is a small quiet town 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 direction is slightly towards the inside of the volcanic lagoon.
  • Best Private Villa in Santorini : Grace Villa (seriously?)
