Consisting of only four apartments and located on one of the highest point on the cliffs surrounding the Santorinian caldera, Dreams Luxury Suites is as exclusive as it gets, and offers panoramic views over one of the most spectacular islands in the world.
ROMANCE IN AN EXCLUSIVE PACKAGE
Hotel is literally carved out of the cliff. The white walls curve and bend around corners and ceilings, which gives the four luxury suites an appearance of a natural cave formation and resembles a traditional Santorini housing.
Each apartment have been infused with its own personality. Orfeas is dominated by yellow accent colour, the Nefeli by blue, and Armonia’s charming wooden shutters are green. Foivos has two bedrooms and bathrooms and the largest swimming pool—ideal for groups of friends or families with older children. The view from all suites is simply one of a kind.
There is lots of little details—like rose petals on the bed, flowers, champagne, candles lit on the terrace at night, a bottle of local wine and fruit basket on arrival—that make Dreams perfect for romantic moments.
Exceptionally rich, delicious breakfasts are served to the room, or on a private terrace outside, overlooking the caldera. A wide selection of Greek delicacies, eggs, coffee, freshly squeezed juice is accompanied either by champagne or the delicious—our favourite—Santorinian Vinsanto (local wine).
Light lunches are also served to the room, but there is a number of restaurants close to the hotel, thanks to its convenient location on the outskirts of the beautifully situated village of Imerovigli. Fira, the bustling capital of the island, is just fifteen minutes of walk along the cliff.
WHAT WE LOVE
Great location and fantastic views of the caldera. Unlike many hotels overlooking the Caldera, Dreams is located away from noise and crowds, but close enough to restaurants;
Only four suites of the hotel make Dreams an incredibly exclusive place—and give a real sense of privacy;
Magical atmosphere… especially at sunset;
There aren’t many stairs, which is rare in a cliff-side hotel on Santorini;
Apartments are equipped with laptops with WiFi, iPod docking station and organic toiletries Korres;
Discreet and friendly staff. Managers Artemis and George never fail to give the best sightseeing tips or recommend a restaurant.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
As one might expect, the quality goes hand in hand with price. The prices are steep, especially in the peak season, but then the view itself is worth it;
Apartment Nefeli has a large Jacuzzi instead of a swimming pool, and due to the location next to the sidewalk, this room is the least private—but also the cheapest;
Although other suites have private swimming pools, they are too small to swim. They are great for cooling in hot weather though;
Families with young children are not allowed to stay at Dreams—due to the risky location of the hotel high on a cliff.
