Intimate Honeymoon Spot: Astarte Suites, Santorini island
The beautiful island of Santorini in Greece is home to Astarte Suites, a small and intimate boutique hotel of just nine suites. Sitting literally on the brink of a cliff-edge in Akrotiri’s Caldera, Astarte boasts spectacular panoramic views across of Aegean Sea.
Cycladic architecture and a style that is sympathetic to the natural surrounds of volcanic lava reliefs lends a sophisticated edge to this boutique hotel. The interior is inspired by ancient Mediterranean cultures, and no two suites are the same. All have jacuzzi tubs, king-size beds and flatscreen televisions. Breakfast is served in the privacy of individual verandas or terraces. With champagne and fresh friut on arrival, complimentary transfers and impeccable staff, this is a glamorous bolthole on one of the most glamorous islands on the planet.
- Recommended Place to Stay by Condé Nast Traveller :
This family-run, nine-suites hotel is in the least-developed part of the island. There are panoramas of the caldera, and the village-topped cliffs looking like snow-capped mountains. The best rooms are those with traditional vaulted ceilings. Meals are served on your private terrace.
