Perched on the cliff edge, on the outskirts of the traditional Cycladic village of Imerovigli, Avaton Resort and Spa is a luxurious boutique hotel with stunning views of Santorini's caldera and the sea. With an ideal location just a short drive from Fira, this tranquil hideaway is a wonderful place to get away from it all.
The treatments at Avaton Lifestyle Spa blend the best of ancient Greek healing traditions with contemporary therapies and facilities. They make use of essential oils and plant extracts, to leave you nourished and refreshed. The spa is tucked away in a tranquil cave, along with a hydrotherapy pool, plunge pool, infrared sauna and steam cavern.
There are just nine elegant rooms and suites, all with beautiful views of the Aegean and the caldera. Most have their own balcony or patio, while the two suites boast private outdoor Jacuzzis.
Take a dip in the outdoor freshwater swimming pool or the indoor heated pool. When you want to head out and explore the island, the hotel's concierge can arrange car and boat rentals, boat trips and private tours, or you could just take a stroll – you'll find the paths to both Fira and to Oia directly in front of the hotel.
Start the day with a delicious a la carte breakfast on your own terrace or balcony. At lunch and dinner, you can enjoy classic Greek and Mediterranean fare, served al fresco on the edge of caldera, or in an ancient cave carved into the volcanic rock. There's also a poolside cafe bar serving snacks, wine and cocktails.
