On the heights of the volcanic island of Santorini, the luxurious villas of the Katikies Hotel are dug deep into the rock of the Oia cliffs. As if suspended above the Aegean Sea, the hotel’s 7 rooms and 19 suites offer its guests a dizzying and pleasant sense of luxury. Sprung from the imagination of the celebrated Greek architect, Ilias Apostolides, the hotel pays tribute to the aesthetics of Aegean architecture and places visitors in a state of weightlessness. Comfort, serenity and relaxation make the Katikies a worthy member of the Leading Hotels of the World list. The hotel’s romantic atmosphere promises guests a simply intoxicating vacation.


Santorini is a volcanic island that rose up from out of the earth to become a discreet and calm site, ideal for contemplation. The deep blue of the sea, the suspended villages on the edge of the crater, immaculately white houses and architectural treasures freed from the ashes have made it an idealized representation of the Cyclades archipelago and the Aegean Sea. Although trendy Mykonos is known for its party like and glamorous atmosphere, romantic Santorini thrives on its gentle art de vivre. On the north coast of the island, the small village of Oia lies on the heights of the cliffs surrounding the crater. As night falls, this haven of peace becomes a place of reverie and melancholy, whereas the streets of the island’s capital, Thira livens up as the lights of the tavernas come on, ready to welcome the evening’s guests. The enchanting beauty of the island’s landscapes has contributed to making Santorini one of Europe’s most romantic tourist destinations, attracting celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts and Johnny Depp who come here to get back in touch with their inner selves.

Levitating above the crater

As if suspended around the inundated crater of the ancient volcano, the villas of the Hotel Katikies are carved into the rocks of the dizzying Oia cliffs. Located a hundred meters above the deep blue Aegean Sea, the hotel’s 7 rooms and 19 suites, are connected to each other by a labyrinth of gleaming white arches and staircases. The all white interiors pay tribute to the aesthetics of Aegean architecture with gentle curves, hidden alcoves and a prevailing sense of freshness. The breathtaking infinity swimming pool seems to be an extension of the sea and the crater, creating a wonderful sensation of floating halfway between sea and sky. What can be more exciting than the feeling of levitation? Thanks to this new creation by Greek architect Ilias Apostolides, guests are placed in an intoxicating state of weightlessness!

The numerous steps and the height of the swimming pools on the terraces make the hotel difficult to access for those with reduced mobility. In addition, only children over the age of thirteen can be admitted as guests.
