& Spa, a luxury hotel set in the caldera cliff-face
in the peaceful Santorini village of Imerovigli, blends in with the Cycladic architecture of the island. While immaculate throughout, the 18 suites and villas, many designed to resemble caves (without the mustiness), are particularly outstanding -- some have private hot tubs and plunge pools, and all have exceptional views. The on-site gourmet restaurant, outdoor pool with pool bar, spa with indoor pool and hammam, and pre-ordered Champagne breakfasts delivered to private terraces contribute to an atmosphere of secluded luxury. Travelers might want to compare rates with the nearby Honeymoon
Petra Villas, which has a larger pool but less-luxurious suites.
Cycladic-style cliff-top hotel with stunning panoramas
the island's charming architectural template -- whitewashed plasterwork on
flowing and gently rounded walls cascading down the volcanic cliff in steep
tiers -- Pegasus Suites & Spa stands out as slightly grander
and more spacious than other Santorini properties. While other hotels are also immaculately presented, Pegasus Suites & Spa has a particularly polished and effortlessly
chic vibe -- a Champagne welcome drink for all guests certainly sets the tone.
Add numerous sun terraces from which to take in the signature caldera views of the volcano, rocks, and the sea, and it's no surprise this property is particularly popular for weddings and honeymooning couples -- even the occasional marriage proposal has taken place here.
setting in Imerovigli village slightly north of Fira
The hotel overlooks the Aegean Sea in the small and relatively peaceful village of Imerovigli, just north of the island's capital. While the outskirts of the bustling tourist
hub of Fira are within walking distance, the hotel sits off one of the
less-busy cliff-top footpaths that service the local area. This makes for a
more peaceful setting but with fewer restaurants nearby. It's about a 20-minute drive to Santorini Airport, or about 30 minutes to the island's main port.
suites and villas with luxury touches and some outstanding features
Pegasus Suites & Spa has 18 beautiful suites and villas, all of which are decorated in the signature whitewash and molded
plaster. Most are carved out from the cliff, but are not prone to mustiness. All suites feature a range of luxury touches, such as goose-feather pillows, scented oil vaporizers, slippers and robes, and satin bedclothes, as
well as the standard free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and
minibars. Higher-end suites get seriously upscale, with private sea-view pools and indoor hot tubs, some with plexiglass panels to cut down
on the humidity. All units open to furnished balconies with spectacular
views. Bathrooms, carved out in pale-gray stone, have decorative sinks, and include toiletries; entry-level suites have Venetian stucco rainfall showers but no tubs. Be aware that in-room Wi-Fi can be patchy, and water can be slow to heat up.
breakfasts, candlelit dinners, spa with hammam, pool, sauna, and small fitness center
choice of breakfast items, included in the room rate, is offered (from the American Champagne breakfast to
a Greek menu); selections are made the evening before and delivered to private balconies
the following morning. There's a large (for
Santorini) restaurant with indoor and outdoor tables with caldera views where romantic
candlelit dinners can be booked. While not one of the biggest, the pool has a large sun terrace and a poolside bar. There's also a spa
with sauna, hammam, and hydrotherapy pools, as well as a small fitness center with modern cardio- and weight-training equipment. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, but the signal can be patchy, especially in rooms.
