Santorini Palace

The Santorini Palace has a relaxing vibe and spectacular views of Santorini’s caldera. The hotel’s built in a typically Cycladic style, and is made up of a maze of sugar-cube buildings, while inside, the modern bedrooms feature all-white walls and furniture, as well as bleached-wood flooring.

The swimming pool is set right into the cliffs, so you get widescreen caldera views from the sunbathing terrace. There’s a waterside bar out here, as well. For meals, you can pile your plate with around-the-world dishes in the restaurant. For lighter bites, the pool bar serves daytime snacks.

Overview of Thira

One of the most romantic, glamorous and popular destinations in Greece, on your holiday to Santorini, you can expect sun, sea, history and spectacular views that will take your breath away.

The landscapes of Santorini were forged thousands of years ago during a volcanic eruption, so there’s history and mystery on every street. Today, it’s most famous for its sunsets, beautiful beaches and excellent wines.

Things to do in Santorini

The Santorini Palace is just metres from a cliff, so panoramic views of Santorini’s dramatic caldera are part of the package. A five-minute walk along the cliff’s edge will take you to Thira. As the island’s capital, Thira is a place where you can take part in some retail therapy during the day and party the night away in the evening.

If you’re ready for a change of pace, Oia is only nine kilometres away. Known for its sunset views and tall cliffs that drop into the blue sea below, you can explore the ruins of a Byzantine castle. In the evening, it’s also a great spot for a rooftop meal.
