From the famed sunsets to Cycladic whitewashed houses adorned with bougainvillea, blue-domed churches to cliff hanging luxury resorts, Santorini is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. We have compiled a list of top hotels in Santorini where you can enjoy spectacular views including stunning sunsets from your hotel room’s balcony or a private pool.
Towns of Oia, Fira, Imerovigli and Firostefani are located on the west coast of Santorini and offer spectacular sea, sunset and caldera views. While the Oia Old Castle is one of the most popular sunset spots in Santorini, it is also one of the most crowded spots, where people line up several hours in advance to get the vantage spots. If you want to avoid the crowds or rather prefer enjoying the amazing views from your hotel room, there are many Santorini hotels that feature absolutely stunning views.
Most hotels in Fira, Imerovigli and Firostefani provide caldera and full sunset views with out any obstructions. Even though, most places in Oia only offer partial sunset views, as it sets behind the curved cliff, the sunset views there are more popular. While from most hotels in Oia, you don’t actually get to see the sun setting in the sea, you do get the panoramic view of the town with cliff hanging houses and windmills back-dropped by the hues of the sun setting behind it.
