With its iconic white houses perched on the cliffs of the caldera facing the exquisitely clear waters of the Aegean Sea, Santorini is home to fascinating, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
Santorini, the jewel of the Greek islands, is also becoming a «wedding destination» for couples from all over the world, this scenic destination offers you many dream experiences that will guarantee you an unforgettable honeymoon, here we present you the 10 best hotels for a perfect honeymoon in Santorini.
What is the best place to stay in Santorini on a honeymoon?
My favorite hotel in Santorini is Grace Santorini in Imerovigli , so it would be my first choice for an incredible honeymoon hotel.Unfortunately, these two hotels are very expensive and are often booked 6 to 9 months in advance, so I have listed other great hotels below. I strongly recommend staying in one of the cities ( Fira , Firostefani , Imerovigli , Oia ) along the caldera that have views of the volcano.Akrotiri, Pyrgos and Megalochori also have some wonderful hotels (some, but not all will have excellent views) and are well suited for newlyweds who wish to spend most of the day by the pool.
But if you want easy access to shops, restaurants and cafes, we recommend staying in the 4 main cities.If you want access to the nightlife then Fira is the best.Imerovigli is the most romantic town in Santorini but can be too quiet for some newlyweds.Oia is a good combination of the two (busier than Imerovigli but not as busy as Fira).Firostefani is a 10 minute walk from Fira and feels like a quieter extension of that town.
