Kirini Suites & Spa
You’re looking at spots for your next vacation. Are you headed to a beach or to a city or to the mountains? Santorini, Greece. – Tom Ketley
Perched on a cliff in Oia—a small Santorini fishing town with a patchwork of blue-domed white buildings—Kirini Suites & Spa welcomes travelers who yearn for a slice of coastal life in the middle of the Greek Islands. The resort has spacious rooms with private verandas and Aegean Sea views, with rates ranging from $520 to $1,030. The décor is bright and casual, with ivory-colored walls and drapes; honeymoon suites come with classic Mediterranean design and an open-air jacuzzi.
Kirini Suites & Spa boasts a gourmet restaurant, Anthos, which serves traditional Greek cuisine meat dishes like souvlaki and strapatso, and Santorini wines. A.SPA, which won the award for Greece’s Leading Boutique Spa Hotel at the 2014 World Travel Awards, offers relaxing treatments like hot gemstone massages and facials. Getting here is simple: guests can catch a taxi at Santorini Airport’s terminal and make the nine-mile trip to the resort.
The hotel is within walking distance of Oia’s town square, a picturesque plaza with bell-towered churches and a cobweb of narrow streets. Visitors who want to travel farther afield can check out Kamari, a coastal village with a black sand beach, two miles southeast.
