Photos to Inspire Your Santorini Trip!

I recently wrote about where celebrities stay on the romantic island of Santorini.  Other than Mykonos, this is the most famous Greek Island of all: with dramatically high cliffs, iconic blue & white architecture, & towns that spill down towards the water’s edge.  It’s also one of the world’s great honeymoon spots, & throughout this article ~ I’ll sprinkle in amazing hotels for romantic getaways, many with private pools & insane ocean views.  Here’s a curated collection of “Photos to Inspire Your Santorini Trip!”

Some say that the island may actually be the “Lost City of Atlantis…”

Another shot by my brother, & one that we both had framed!

In case you’re curious about the hotel above: Hotel Villa Renos is a reasonably-priced place to stay (under $200/night), located right in Fira Town ~ & many rooms still have gorgeous sea views. Luxury on a budget!

Bring your drone or best camera to capture amazing shots of Santorini’s coastline.

Amazing Hotels in Fira & Imerovigli

Fira is the largest town on Santorini, & the island’s capital.  There’s a great restaurant & nightlife scene here, that I’ve experienced first-hand….twice!  The Kardashians have stayed at the Celestia Grand, located just outside of town….so you know it’s first-class, with incredibly photogenic private pools, situated right on the cliff’s edge. 

For a little more R&R, check out Imerovigli ~ which lies between Fira & Oia.  Ashley Iaconetti & Jared Haibon, from “The Bachelor” franchise, stayed at West East Suites during their romantic European honeymoon.

Strolling Around Oia….

Oia is located in northern Santorini, & is the second-largest city on the island.  It’s a great place to stay if you want to be walkable to restaurants & nightlife.  And it’s also a great place for potential star-sightings, as two of the island’s most luxurious hotels are located here….(I’ll tell you which ones they are below)!

Amazing Luxury Hotels in Oia

Two hotels in Oia really stand-out in terms of beauty, luxury, & incredible photo opportunities: Andronis Luxury Suites & Canaves Oia Boutique Hotel.  Many celebrities have stayed at both of these properties….

“A Little Piece of Heaven in Oia.  One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. The views from Canaves Oia are breathtaking. We stayed in Suite #1, a 2-bedroom suite with a plunge pool & sitting deck that seems to float above the sea. Service is impeccable. We absolutely loved our stay here.”
