We all have these picture perfect expectations of the stunning Santorini… and luckily, our rose-tinted glasses don’t lie! :D The proof? This hotel ;)

Iliovasilema Suites

Situated on the fascinating Caldera, this relatively small hotel offers guests some of the most incredible views of the volcano, some seriously romantic sunset opportunities and just an all round pleasant stay :) If you’re looking to head on a really decent sun holiday, this is about as lush as you’ll get.

It’s cosy and comfortable, and you won’t be sacrificing any of the basics, yet you’ll have some of the best luxuries and a real Santorini experience… as it should be ;)


The hotel is actually opposite the three isles of Thirassia, Palea and Nea Kameni, and it’s known for boasting views like no other, including that of the volcano Caldera.

In the little village of Imerovigli, you’ll have a nice choice of restaurants, bars and other bits and pieces to scope out. It’s a real location for a relaxing getaway, and nothing overly touristy. If you’re not one for the massive peak season crowds and dodging everyone’s photos at just about every corner, then this is the Santorini location you should be looking into :) Peace and quiet when you want it, and a bit more a buzz if you fancy scoping it out!

It’s worth noting that this hotel doesn’t accept children under the age of 13, so it would be better suited if you’re looking for a bit of quality time on a romantic getaway with your other half :)


The hotel itself boasts all the main facilities, like a hairdryer, an equipped kitchen, radio, telephone, safe, laundry room and room service. So you’ll certainly be guaranteed comfort, that’s for sure! :)

There’s just 17 rooms in the hotel so it’s quite small but it makes it nice and cosy and you can feel much more at ease and looked after.

The best part is that it’s really not that expensive. For example, I found a very reasonable price of €136 per room per night for the middle of May. That’s a sun holiday in one of the number one sun holiday destinations, for only less than €70 each a night. How ideal! You can check out that price in the screenshot below, and when you click the link you can find whatever dates suit you best… you may even find it cheaper!
