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.
Double rooms are split-level, with a bedroom on the upper floor, that looks onto a seating area. There's space for two with a double bed. Rooms feature neutral tones decorated with canvas prints and scatter cushions. These rooms have a minibar on request.
We treated ourselves to this to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary - the rep said he told them to put fruit in the room but we didn't get any. The room was lovely with a huge bath if you had time to fill it! Our room was next to the pool which was lovely to cool off in. The girls in the reception were really helpful, the waiters were friendly and always on hand and Stella ran the pool bar excellently. It is a little far out from anywhere else to eat and the menu is nice but not traditional so we soon became experts at using the buses and managed to see the whole island this way. There is a car from the hotel to the beach and the driver is really nice and helpful. He also ran us to a Greek night but you have to taxi back but it was worth it. The roads are really busy so take care. The best restaurant we found was Blue Volcano in Fira. The highlight of the holiday was watching the traffic warden in Pygros - a must, he is hilarious. This a truly beautiful island. We really enjoyed it. Thomson sell it as adults only but there are children there in the other rooms.More

Future Wedding Destination
One word... AMAZING!! If you have the chance to stay anywhere in Santorini then stay here. The staff are wonderful. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome. The manageress Helen is a bundle of energy and helped us out throughout the duration of our stay especially with our wedding preparations for next year. We didn't even plan to have the wedding at the venue, but after viewing other sites and being decidedly underwhelmed, we chose to have it here.
And we definately made the right choice !!!
We stayed in a junior suite for the first week and upgraded to the VIP suite for the final week. The junior was more than adequate and very clean but the VIP was something else.. Private Jacuzzi, stunning views of the Caldera and sunset in the evening, and a huge bedroom to relax in.
Stella the bartender was fantastic too supplying us with many a cocktail and some very fun evenings at the pool bar. Big thanks to all the other members of staff including Stellios, Vagellis and Rudi who did us proud as our waiting staff for our stay.
You can go to Oia for the fabled sunset but to be honest the view is just as good from this hotel. And you avoid the huge number of tourists who cram into the village !!
On the whole a truly sublime fortnight and i cannot wait to return next year :)More

Honeymoon 28 July - 3 August
This hotel is amazing from reception staff to all the bar and pool staff~ Room was amazing, cleaned daily!
Views breath taking.
Reception mentioned something special for our stay as it was our honeymoon but we never received it? we were in our room the last 2 days most of the day and night..
The room we were in could do with an automatic air freshener as the bathroom sometimes had a smell to it.
Overall I cant wait to come back and I will definitely stay here again.More

Superb Views and Good Room
The location is on the rim of the caldera on Santorini. Need I say more? There are not many other locations on planet Earth to compare with that.
The view of the caldera far below and the harbor is hard to beat, though, to be fair, there are quite a few hotels on Santorini with essentially the same view. As far as I could tell, just about every room has the view.
The hotel is picturesque and well laid out. The breakfast served is very good. The staff are friendly and competent. There is a spa, but we didn't use it.
To get to most of the rooms you need to be able to walk up and down stairs. No problem for most people, but will be tough for some.
We liked the little pool placed with a superb view of the caldera.
Negatives: the air conditioning was not good. After complaining, it was adjusted and did better, but was never quite what we hoped. And, as we found everywhere in Greece, the WiFi is poor by American standards.
Also, if you don't have a car, there is no nearby other restaurant. We walked one night down to Megalochori for dinner, which was fine, but then we had to get back to the hotel after dark. The roads are narrow and walking along them is scary. Fortunately, we got a ride.More

Stunning view from every angle, unique rooms, and excellent hospitality overall. We absolutely loved our stay and even decided to spend a day just enjoying the pool and the view. Food was good, a bit expensive but to be expected since its the only place to eat. The hotel is not in the big town (Fira) which was suited us since we enjoy the peaceful atmosphere being just outside in the smaller village. The town is only about 10 minutes away so you can get your fill easily.
I did a treatment at the spa - which is extremely beautiful. Treatment was fine. It was expensive but a unique experience and chance in a lifetime. One evening we went to a wine tasting at the winery next door and watch the sunset from there. Small little winery but charming and we bought some original Megalochori wines to bring home.
It is a very nice place, not opulent though. Service was outstanding and we plan to go back. It's up there as one of our favorite places ever.More
