Katikies—a complex of bridges, cubist cottages and infinity pools—is considered the grande dame of Santorini’s boutique hotels. Hugging the dramatic Caldera (a volcanic rim), which affords astounding vistas, the property is a natural fit for honeymooners, romantics and couples. The white washed suites have classic arched ceilings and majestic views of the Aegean Sea, which can be enjoyed from the large terrace with an open-air dining area, sun deck and two-person Jacuzzi.
For the ultimate romantic meal, the Dinner Restaurant provides the perfect setting with just four candlelit tables perched on a secret verandah rooftop overlooking the Caldera. The better-known Kirini Pool Restaurant offers the same breathtaking panoramas, plus a fresh, seasonal menu of traditional Mediterranean dishes.
