Santorini Heights

Pyrgos, Greece

Important Announcements
Read more Read less


The Premises 

Santorini Heights, at the highest point of the namesake Greek honeymoon haven, is formed from four whitewashed suites and a huge helping of (largely human-free) caldera views. The laidback owners like to keep things simple, offering room service rather than a restaurant, organising cooking classes to champion the local produce, and growing organic herbs and vegetables on site for use in everything from the cocktails delivered straight to your terrace to the cakes laid out in the communal kitchen. You’ll need a car to explore the rest of the island, but Pyrgos – and all its excellent tavernas, bars and boutiques – is the next village along.

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: Noon, but flexible, subject to availability and a 50 per cent charge. Earliest check-in, 2pm, also flexible.
Rates usually include breakfast – smoked salmon, eggs, cooked-to-order dishes and cereals.


Free WiFi throughout, car park. In rooms: Nespresso coffee machine; flatscreen TV; Bluetooth speaker; kitchen; natural bath products.


There won’t be many other guests to compete with, so anything goes – you’ll even be able to wear heels, unlike at most other precipitous Santorini properties.


To ensure the safety of our staff and guests during these unprecedented times, we have made the decision to temporarily close our hotel. We apologize for any inconvenience, please check back at a later time wheen travel restrictions in the area have lifted. We look forward to hosting you in the future when the world is a much safer and happier place. We appreciate you, thank you for understanding.


There’s no communal pool, just the one in your suite.


Spa therapists, personal trainers and yoga or Pilates teachers can drop by your suite.
Learn how to cook with island produce grown on site by booking onto a cooking class.


Rates are in euro (€) and include breakfast and all applicable taxes. We pre-authorize guest's credit card when the cancellation policy applies for guarantee reasons. All guests receive a confirmation letter and they are asked to authorize us for the use of their credit card


There are only four suites and a private villa to choose from, and each has its own charms. If water temperature’s important to you (and you enjoy nit-picking), the plunge pools in the Garden and Herb suites are four degrees warmer than the (bigger) pools in Cactus and Vine. Cactus is closest to the roadside, but we were wooed by its outdoor space, which includes a communal table and sunken sitting area, as well as the private pool. Right at the top of the hotel, the Summit Villa has the loftiest views and the most secluded location.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There’s no formal restaurant at the hotel, but communal barbecues are regularly laid on for guests in the herb garden, where a table is set up. These friendly affairs often move on to the dining room next to the lobby, where guests continue their local-produce odyssey with wine and cheese tastings. At other times, guests are encouraged to dine on their own private terrace. Make use of your in-suite kitchen, or ring through for room service; snacks are supplied by the hotel or, with a couple of hours’ notice, dishes from acclaimed nearby restaurant Selene will appear at your door. Breakfast is served daily and ordered the evening before.

Liquid Bliss 

There’s no bar, but drinks can be requested via room service, and there’s a minibar and wine cooler in your suite. The hotel owners have an impress collection of wine to sample, or order one of the garden-herb cocktails.

Experience the Extraordinary 

The crowds will be flocking to Oia for sunset and they have a point, but there’s more to this Aegean island. The hotel can arm you with directions for some view-chasing hikes, including from Fira to Oia, around the volcano, and to Ancient Thira, a city on the ridge of a mountain. The neighbouring village of Pyrgos is filled with 12th-century alleys, pretty churches, galleries and some of the best restaurants on the island. Wine has been made on Santorini for thousands of years – see how with a trip to Venetsanos or Gavalas. Cinema buffs will love a trip to the outdoor cinema in Kamari. The hotel can also organise a sailing tour of the local coast on a yacht or catamaran.


The hotel is on the highest (hence the name) part of the island, a short drive from the village of Pyrgos.


The island’s main airport is eight kilometres away; expect the drive to take around 20 minutes. Hotel transfers cost €30 each way for up to three passengers (after that, it’s an additional €10 a person); €100 will get you a fancier vehicle. The same rates apply for transfers to and from the port.


The hotel is a short drive uphill from Pyrgos. It’s recommended that you have your own car for getting around the island; the staff can arrange hire for you, and you can leave the car at the hotel when you depart. There’s free parking during your stay, too.


Transfers from the local helipad (three kilometres away) can be organised by the hotel. Staff will also be able to assist if you want to arrive by chopper or private jet from Athens or Mykonos.
