To be honest with you, these come at a very high price and they are some of the most expensive rooms you can find in Europe. For a very good reason, though, as this is the most stunning view you would probably see in your life. Most hotels at this price tag, though usually have an incredible shared infinity pool as well as an impressive pool bar, which can also be an amazing experience by itself. Itโ€™s good to note here that these rooms are, in most cases, โ€œAdult onlyโ€ rooms and they are, of course ideal for a romantic getaway or a honeymoon in Santorini. The private plunge pools in Santorini are literally out of this world.

12. Celestia Grand (Fira)

Celestia Grand in Fira is scoring an incredible 9.9/10 from independent reviews at and that says a lot about the quality of service and the facilities.

Some hotels offer just hot tubs on your private balcony but some others have a complete outdoor pool. But apart from the private pool you can also usually experience the impressive outdoor swimming pool they have as a shared facility. While not all of them are considered an infinity pool, some of them are possibly the most impressive in Europe as the caldera views are unparalleled and nowhere else to be found.
