Iris Boutique Hotel

Perfectly coordinated with Santorini, the Iris Boutique Hotel is a vision in gleaming white with a pretty lagoon-blue pool sitting centrally in the outdoor terrace. Beautifully understated and minimal, the hotel is both modern and timeless, while accommodating all needs and being ideally located.

Just a few steps from the beach and found in the centre of Kamari, the hotel is the perfect base for any type of holiday, even a history buff’s dream getaway, as Ancient Thira is a mere 10 minutes away by car. With a continental breakfast buffet served up every morning, guests can top up the tanks before heading out for a day of exploring.

Overview of Kamari

Holidays to Santorini have made it onto the bucket lists of countless travellers in recent years thanks to the unforgettable skyline of stunning domed buildings that has featured in countless films and novels. As a result of the surge in tourism, each region is ready to welcome visitors, year-round.

Kamari, home to the Iris Boutique Hotel, is known for its eye-catching black sand and pebble beach, as well as its surprisingly vibrant nightlife scene. An ancient city that has added in enough modern attractions and amenities to appeal to holidaymakers, it makes for a unique getaway filled with exciting water sports, lively bars and unforgettable food.

Things to do in Kamari

With no evening dining facilities on site, the Iris Boutique Hotel naturally encourages guests to venture out as the sun sets, in search of food and excitement, both of which can be found in droves. Restaurants on the promenade are definitely recommended, as they tend to offer the most exceptional seafood dishes and will keep you in close proximity to the best bars, clubs and live music venues.

During the day, you’ll want to stretch out on the black-sand beach, but add in a little retail therapy for some extra fun. Local wares include ceramics, jewellery and leather items, all of which can be bought for a good price if you haggle. For family fun, Escape Land is a must, with bowling lanes and a DJ, or if you like a challenge, try your hand at the Kamari Escape Room.

The joy of Santorini is world famous and Kamari is a perfect example of why as gorgeous scenery combines with activities and tasty food to provide visitors with a truly unique holiday.

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.
