Acqua Vatos

The Acqua Vatos is a boutique hotel. It’s a smart and contemporary-looking place that even has its own vineyard.

Every morning, the hotel serves hearty Greek food to set you up for the day. Most guests then head straight to the sleek pool, which is framed by thatched parasols and white loungers. It even has its own chill-out area complete with cushioned sofas and oversized lanterns. There’s also a bar by the pool, so it’s easy to get daytime snacks.

The lounge bar is a chic little spot to hang out after dark. The bartenders like to get creative with their cocktails, while jazz and soul tracks set the mood.

Resort Summary

Spending your Santorini holidays in Kamari means you’ll never be bored, whatever your interests. Whether your idea of holiday fun is to stretch out on a beach and take in the sun or expend your energy in vigorous watersports, you’ll soon discover that Kamari has plenty of activities that’ll keep you occupied all day and all night.

This is also the destination where you can really expect to find the unexpected. Kamari’s Blue Flag beach is black, courtesy of the volcanic eruption that created Santorini many thousands of years ago, covering much of the area in black molten ash. Thankfully Kamari beach’s black pebbles are only hot as a result of the sun and not due to any current volcanic activity.

You’ll find the ruins of a city that dates back almost 3,000 years within a stone’s throw of contemporary Kamari. The town’s promenade is now home to an eclectic selection of modern shops, restaurants and bars.
