A Stay at the Luxurious Fanari Villas Hotel in Oia, Santorini
A guest favorite, the Fanari Villas Hotel is a luxury accommodation located in Oia Santorini, nestled in a picturesque hamlet situated on the cliffs above the beautiful Caldera, with an enchanting view of the endless Aegean Sea and the region’s famous volcanic island of Thirassia.

No better place to take in the mesmerizing views, fresh Mediterranean food, historical masterpieces, and captivating sunsets than from the Fanari Villas Hotel.
The traditionally Grecian-styled building with Cycladic features provides guests with a genuine ‘taste’ of Santorini. Shades of white and green details work to compliment the natural setting of Oia. Curves rooftops, arches, charming verandas, and terraces are far and plenty and offer guests the perfect sea and sunset view. Stone-paved paths weave throughout the complex and potted plants line the walkways, with bougainvillea climbing the wish washed walls.
The host of suite options range from junior suites to honeymoon suites and horizon suites, but all the rooms are distinguished by their charming traditional Santorinian style, with arches, curves, and cool whitewashed walls that contrast spectacularly with the deep blue waters and bright blue sky just outside each window. The suite balconies are the stars of the show and you’ll find it hard to move from the sunbeds overlooking the sea.
A spectacular pool hidden in a white-washed cave and detailed with stone opens up to a sunny cliffside deck, made complete with wooden pergolas and lounge chairs. A cave sauna, jacuzzi and private massage area in the confines of the cool cave add an element of relaxation, tranquility and romance to the secluded spot.

Take advantage of the option to be served on your private veranda or arrange a romantic set dinner with the help of the hotel.
