Most Amazing Stays in Greece

Greece is ancient sun-bleached ruins piercing blue skies. From the raw and rollicking heart of Athens where ancient myths and modern influences collide, to the iconic Greek islands surrounded by the glistening Aegean, this is a place where simplicity wins out. Greece’s endless coastline and cultural gems with passionate music, wonderful cuisine and thrill-seeking activities is one of the most loved destinations in Europe.

A beautiful holiday in Greece calls for wonderful accomodation to rest these tired feet and feed the hungry bellies with style and comfort. So, we’ve put together five of our favourite stays in Greece. These suggestions aren’t affiliated.

Perivolas Caves in Santorini

Minimalist suites of Perivolas Hotel carved from the cliffs are almost as dazzling as the sea views. The infinity pool is the stuff of honeymooners’ dreams – everyone looks like a swimwear model in this fabulous setting.

Once the homes, wineries and stables of Santorini’s fishermen and farmers, this group of 300-year-old caves has been transformed into a complex of serene private houses that are as luring as Santorini itself.

Emphasising the view and tranquility, rooms are minimalistic in design and do not have TVs. All units face the caldera, with dreamy sunset views from their private terraces. Pause your life at home and enjoy the luxury of just being with the nature and oneself.

Here you can also expect top-tier service in every aspect from this hotel, family-owned and run for 3 generations.

Contemporary NEW Hotel in Athens

NEW Hotel incorporates the long-standing history and modernity, hip culture of Athens through its beautiful contemporary design and imaginative spaces. It also features an impressive rooftop bar and restaurant and a stunningly unique Penthouse Suite. This contemporary stay offers proximity to Acropolis of Athens and entices guests with a sauna, a steam room and a treatment room.

This is a very creative hotel with various themes present, including Greek folklore, the evil eye tradition and postcards of Athens.

The hotel is located off a main city artery across from the city’s leafy National Gardens, and just steps away from Athens’ public transport, including the Syntagma metro station and a bus stop which connects directly to the Athens International Airport. You can also catch the Athens tram which connects to all points south including the beaches of the Athens Riviera.

Relaxing Grace Hotel in Mykonos

The Grace Mykonos, looking southwest over the Aegean to Rínia islet from Ágios Stéfanos cove, has made a name for itself with its meticulously equipped rooms, attentive service and excellent food.

Most rooms here have sea-facing balconies, but the VIP Suite is reached by its own elevator and includes a private, fully furnished verandah with Jacuzzi. Grace bar and restaurant offers light, contemporary Mediterranean cuisine in an elegant and unpretentious atmosphere, both indoors and by the pool.

While it may feel luring, don’t stay in for too long – the hotel’s proximity to many iconic destinations is a great opportunity to explore. The Agios Stefanos beach is just by the hotel, so there’s a good chance you’ll get no further than a horizontal position on this chilled-out curve of coastline. It’s worth the short drive south of the hotel to Chora, Mykonos’ main town though.

Crete Gem of Domes of Elounda

Domes of Elounda offer a choice of four restaurants, smooth-edged architecture and the hotel’s own patch of beach. This hotel comes with a Spa, fitness room, library, free WiFi and tennis courts with a good variety of rooms. For the most private of stays, opt for the multi-roomed Private Residences, which have a fireplace, living room (X-Boxes and PlayStations are available on request) and use of the chauffeured club car. For €20 a day plus a one-time €100 cleaning fee, small dogs (up to 6kg) can stay in the Domes Private Residences.

What we love about this hotel is that there are five pools – two saltwater pools and three freshwater. Some offer amazing with views over to Spinalonga and the bay. Not only there are multiple swimming pools here but also four restaurants to pick from, from a buffet restaurant in the main dining room, a fine-dining under a twinkling sky, theme dining with the views out to Spinalonga and Italian fusion restaurant as well.

This is a hotel of plenty! You’ll find yourself busy enjoying all the facilities and relaxation here. But don’t just stay in. Get out and explore! Browse through the pop-up shops and outdoor art installations, sample your way through the food trucks of the Agora until you’ve found a favourite and cosy up on a picnic blanket for alfresco cinema nights. Check the schedule for open-air concerts, performances and events too.

The Purple Apricot Stay on Paxos

Purple Apricot Hotel in Paxos is a romantic adults-only hotel home to seven beautifully-styled suites. Hidden behind a high stone wall, this charming property has a secret garden vibe, and the swimming pool is the place to be at sunset for wonderful views out to sea. Here, you’ll find a relaxation area festooned with bright floor cushions and adorned with Eastern-inspired tables, lanterns and candles as day melts into dusk. The emphasis is on rich colours and textures both inside and out, a vibrant tapestry to fire all the senses. This unique hotel is refreshingly unconventional and aimed at those who value individuality and personal service.

Peaceful little Paxos, all sparkling coves and olive groves, is one of the most appealing of the Greek islands so make sure you get and explore it.
