This elite, adults-only retreat gives you a mountain-top spa and pools with panoramic views of Santorini’s caldera.
Built on an old cliff-top winery, the Suites of the Gods look directly over Santorini’s ancient volcanic crater – now filled with the blue waters of the Aegean. You can admire the views from 2 of the pools.
The hotel is adults-only, so you can expect a peaceful vibe whether you’re unwinding in the cavernous spa or dining in the à la carte restaurant. The village of Megalocori is less than a 10-minute drive away.
Reading some of the bad reviews on here are actually laughable. People really will moan about the silliest of things. Chill out and enjoy life! That's what this hotel is all about!
Yes it's completely secluded. And yes, you will definitely need to hire a car or make sure you can get taxis every night. Me and my husband hired a car and visited all the beautiful parts of the island every night. It takes 10-15 mins to get to Thira/Oia/Kamari/Megalchori! Santorini is an island you are supposed to go and explore!!!
The hotel is a SPA! They are not supposed to entertain you, and you're not supposed to dine in the restaurant every single night. Go out and experience all the amazing restaurants in the capital Thira!! SOTG's is quiet, calm, peaceful and tranquil. It's set away from everything else. A place for you to chill out and relax from the stresses of everyday life. THE VIEW IS BREATHTAKING!!!! I cried when I saw it!
Although I didn't get married in the hotel itself (I got married in Santo Wines down the road -which you have to go and visit) the hotel and the staff still gave me 5* treatment! Ellie, Helen and all the other girls at reception were just an absolute delight! They were so helpful and smiley and happy for us! Nothing was too much trouble for them!
Our room was lovely and I slept like a baby every single night. The cleaner comes in and gives you fresh towels, empties the bin and cleans every single day! You are given a fridge but being a Brit I suppose it would have been nice to have a kettle!
How people are complaining about the breakfast is crazy! They have everything! Breads, salads, toast, pastries, fresh juices, eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, bacon, scrambled egg, cereals and cakes. What more do you want!?!? The waiters are fantastic, they memorise your drinks, I'd have my cup of tea in my hand before I even sat down! They're fab!!! :-)
The spa is beautiful, a little pricey but you get what you pay for! My husband had a good sports massage there! The hotel is absolutely spotless as well! It can just get a tad dusty on the windier days but it is 100% spotlessly clean!
All in all, this was the perfect wedding/honeymoon vacation. We fell in love with the hotel. And we loved being tucked away from all the hustle and bustle! It felt more romantic! The views are stunning, it really does take your breath away. I will definitely return to SOTG's very soon! It was the most relaxing perfect chilled out and romantic holiday I have ever been on! Thank you so much Ellie and team!
We love you!!!!

Nice view, aweful room!
Reception girls cheery and helpful!
Spa is expensive!
Breakfast was ok but has the same options everyday! I won't miss the buffet!
Our room, had bad ventilation, bathroom mould around the taps, shower fitting non directional and just sprayed onto the floor beyond the shower recess... Bathroom had a constant stale stinky sewerage smell, might be the plumbing but it constantly stunk! Airless rooms with only one window you can leave open and if you do all the bugs come in. Bring insect repellant or sleep in an airless room! Bed was really uncomfortable!
Must visit the Perissa Beach, amazing place!
Some advice, hire a car!
All in all this room 102 needs a massive refurb!
We held our wedding here 2 years ago and were thrilled with the service and the food as were our guests and returned to Santorini mid september this year for a family holiday. We booked into the restaurant for a special meal with our family and enjoyed every minute, every mouthful! The hotel reserved a table inside and outside for us and as the weather that evening was lovely we ate outside overlooking the caldera and the port to observe the sunset If you enjoy fine dining this is the place for you - i had the chicken risotto which was lovely, others had the seafood linguine and the veal all of which were enjoyed and the desserts were fab too. The service was second to none, staff were very attentive the entire time without being intrusive and also reserved a taxi for us to return to our resort. The restaurant is not cheap but if you want a treat and a change from the usual Greek food this restaurant is a good choice.More

Worst Restaurant and Service received on our holiday in Santorini
I booked a special candle lit dinner within the roof top restaurant to celebrate our 38 wedding anniversary, which turned out to be a nightmare from arriving to leaving the restaurant, the staff, service and food was not to an acceptable level of a 4 star hotel, my main negatives were the main courses were cold and the mash potatoes accompanying my wife's chicken dish were over spiced and were inedible, my fish dish came with cold veg and without any type of potatoes being served.
I also asked the waiter to change the standard knife for a fish knives, only to be told these were the only knives they had ( I find it totally unacceptable for a 4 Star Hotel / Restaurant not having fish knifes ).
I had finished my dinner before a replacement dinner had arrived for my wife which consisted of chicken and chips.
I asked to see the manager once my wife had completed her meal, the manager then take on board my concerns and offered us anything free from their menu which I declined bearing in mind we have already eaten.
We were then offered a bottle of red wine and a beer on the house, which I accepted but explained our night had already been ruined.
Therefore, I would suggest anybody thinking of spending a special occasion at this restaurant should think again.More

Fantastic place but don't go half board!
We had a lovely week at this hotel, the view is amazing, the rooms were lovely and all of the staff provided friendly faultless service. Two negatives to mention - the menu is dull - where are the traditional Greek dishes ?! (Also the food doesn't much resemble the description on the menu ). No wonder so few guests use the restaurant, despite the beautiful setting. Secondly there aren't enough sunbeds around the pool, there's loads of space for more so no idea why they can't provide more. Other guests hired cars so that they could explore more, there isn't much in the area although Feggera restaurant and Santor winery are worth a visit. We didn't use the spa, it looks lovely but far too expensive.More
