Top 10 most amazing hotels in the Greek islands

Today (July 1, 2019): Top 10 most amazing hotels in the Greek islands.

Greece has a large number of magnificent islands scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, with estimates ranging from somewhere around 1200 to 6000 depending on the minimum size to take into account. Only 227 of these islands are inhabited. The sunny weather, turquoise waters, magnificent beaches, romantic sunset, delicious food, unique ambiance, and archeological sites have made the Greek islands extremely popular among Greek and foreign visitors. From Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete, to Skiathos, Rhodes, and Kefalonia, the Greek islands ignate the travel spirit and promise a dreamy holiday. Here are my 10 favorite hotels in the Greek islands to relax and indulge in luxury.

10. DOMES MIRAMARE, A LUXURY COLLECTION HOTEL, CORFU

Domes Miramare Corfu is a new, fascinating chapter in the story of one of modern Greece’s most iconic buildings, designed by Charalambos Sfaellos and once owned by the Onassis family. After a recent multimillion pound renovation, Domes Miramare Corfu is true to the spirit of authentic hospitality and luxury experiences of the Domes Resorts family. It is an elegant seafront oasis with 113 bedrooms, suites and villas, for those who seek a luxurious getaway from the ordinary. Renovated with refined natural materials and decorated with contemporary art pieces, Domes Miramare Corfu is a legendary amalgamation of opulent style and design, set in an authentic Mediterranean landscape.

  • 9. PERIVOLAS, SANTORINI

    Poised on a cliff high above the Aegean, Perivolas is a boutique escape, offering laidback luxury and designed as a place where you can let the rest of the world slip away. Built amphitheatrically, Perivolas’ secluded location combines expansive views with the luxury of absolute tranquillity. It’s just a short walk from Oia, the most beautiful village on Greece’s most romantic and dramatic island. 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. Intimate in scale and atmosphere, every house is different. Terraced gardens spill down the slope to the infinity pool, which seems to slip off the rim of the cliff and bleed into the blue horizon. Only the occasional toll of church bells or the whistle of a fishing boat far below breaks the meditative silence. It is easy to linger here all day, watching the changing light until the sun settles into the sea.
