When the natural architectural variations that occur in the myriad whitewashed Greek villages that have evolved over time manage to produce such crooked beauty, it is small wonder that a clifftop hotel seemingly constructed along the same lines should at once endear itself to its visitors.
Katikies is perched on the Caldera cliffs, 300 feet above the Aegean Sea, ensuring some truly spectacular views. The architecture of this luxury boutique hotel on Santorini blends effortlessly into its Greek island surrounds, combining the charm of whitewashed villages with sensuous curves, uncluttered interiors and sleek lines; all the innovative design you'd expect from a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.
Pathways, free form bridges and steep staircases link the pristine buildings and cave houses, at each turn the white cutting a swathe through the colour chart of blues, through turquoise, cerulean, cobalt and sapphire. A small rooftop open-air restaurant is reserved for hotel guests. The atmosphere is intimate, the views stunning and the food sublime.
No less wonderful is the feeling when in the gorgeous infinity pool on one of the lower terraces, marvelling at the unimpeded view, that you could swim right off the edge into the wild blue yonder.
The uncluttered interiors, created by a leading Greek designer, are the epitome of style; plain, white walls allow the beauty of antique furnishings to be fully appreciated, while every modern comfort is provided. And thanks to a policy of no children, you will also be able to appreciate this luxury of peace!
The hotel also has a policy of no children, so you will also be able to appreciate all of this luxury of peace! For this and many other reasons, Katikies makes a superb setting for a Santorini honeymoon.
