Luxe Santorini

This rugged Aegean beauty, the southernmost of the Cyclades, is famed for its sunsets, wine and the turquoise sea that surrounds it.

From its terrifying birth in the apocalyptic volcanic explosion of 1450 BC to the snow-white cubist villas hugging its sheer cliffs, Santorini (also known as Thira) is arguably the most dramatic of all the Greek islands. Barhoppers and gourmets will love its lively tavernas and outstanding restaurants, where just-landed fish is always on the menu. Shopping urges can be similarly sated in the glamorous little town of Oia, with its smart jewellery boutiques and cute narrow streets. Take a hotel room facing the vast volcanic bay (the caldera) and, as you watch ships criss-cross below, you’ll realise that you’re looking at one of the most awe-inspiring, and romantic, views on the planet.

Erosantorini - Santorini Greece Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

A two-acre estate with a whitewashed villa at its heart, Erosantorini in Greece is a four-room clifftop hideaway with impeccable service and volcano views. While you lounge in the infinity pool, gazing at the Aegean from your secluded spot on Santorini, it’s easy to imagine it’s not a hotel at all, but your fanciest friends’ island home. You can even book the entire place to yourself, so let your imagination run riot.

Canaves Oia Suites - Santorini Greece Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability

Canaves Oia Suites bears more than a passing resemblance to its scenic sister, Canaves Oia Hotel: both are pearl-white, knee-weakeningly lovely and graced with incredible Oia views. The Suites are a neck ahead when it comes to pampering, thanks to their spoiling spa, pool-toting sleeping quarters (pick from dinky plunge pools to private infinity pools) and ambitious restaurant, which champions the vibrant produce of the Aegean (and serves up accomplished cocktails). We love this vertiginous caldera-side hotel from dawn till dusk, but it’s particularly eye-pleasing, come sunset.

Grace Santorini - Santorini Greece Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

Grace Santorini hotel is a gleaming white minimalist marvel, carved out of a clifftop on Greece’s sunset paradise. Tottering up the cliff face, the hotel is steeply spread over different levels, with views of Skaros Rock's good side and a chalky restaurant taking up its own floor. The party scene extends to the lengthy infinity pool’s terrace by night, when all that glitters comes to life.

Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites & Spa - Santorini Greece Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

Bypass Oia’s caldera coach loads and bed down in Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites & Spa​, which occupies a peaceful patch of the world’s most Instagrammed sunset-spot, overlooking the Aegean. The hotel is just a five-minute walk away from Oia’s buzz, although you wouldn’t know it when you’re stretched out by the peaceful pools, enjoying leisurely breakfasts – honey pancakes, perhaps – or ticking off ocean-inspired treatments in the quiet spa. A bleached-white colour scheme lets the sea and sky do the talking; shots of colour come courtesy of copper accents, grey-green doors and woven rugs with whorls of blue.
