Immaculate in its design, Kirini Santorini tumbles down the volcanic slope of Oia in a collection of artfully arranged suites, spa and pools, beckoning you to stop, relax and contemplate the view. It’s an easy walk to the village itself, where chic boutiques and restaurants are plentiful, though shutting yourself away certainly isn’t frowned upon – with such sumptuous offerings, who could blame you? Submerge yourself in the glistening pool, or make for the spa where expert beauticians are on hand to encourage even more pampering, though there are even special spa suites where hammams, foot baths and the like can be relished in total privacy. After it all, be sure to choose your seat on the patio in time for sunset, with a drink in-hand and delicious meal to tuck into, for the blissfully iconic Santorini experience.
