San Antonio Hotel in Imerovigli

This distinctively impressive hotel is hewn out of volcanic rock.


100 meters above sea level, nestled in the dramatic landscape of Imerovigli village, the hotel is located only 15 kilometers away from Santorini’s international airport and port and 5 km away from Santorini’s picturesque capital, Fira.


San Antonio is an architecturally striking 5 star boutique hotel, built into a fascinating natural cave formation with its black stone exterior blending harmoniously into the volcanic landscape. At the cave’s entrance the guests are greeted by the San Antonio chapel sculpted in the rocks to bring good luck. As the entrance disappears under the overhanging rock into a cove, the guests follow the path to an imposing lobby with black-pebbled floor and decorated with black and metallic furnishings.



San Antonio hotel offers 25 luxury suites and rooms with airy open-plan spaces tucked within the intricate volcanic structure and terraces or balconies from where guests can soak up the unrivalled views of the glistening Aegean Sea and the sublime caldera view. The rooms feature natural wood furnishings and tile floors and are tastefully decorated with flower and petal designs and high quality linens in natural hues that add to the sensation of peace and tranquility.

Guests can relax at the Sun Lounge next to the infinity pool while enjoying fruit infused cocktails, and taking in the volcanic vista sloping down into the endless Aegean Sea. For further relaxation, they can seek out the volcanic San Antonio Spa Suite, which has been crafted inside the rock, encompassing a jacuzzi and jet shower and providing massages, detoxifying spa treatments and therapies, drawing on the energy lying within primitive elements of volcanic stones and other indigenous minerals.


The romantic San Antonio’s Cliff Side Restaurant lures its guest with delicacies reflecting Santorini’s Mediterranean heritage accentuated with local wines. The Sun Lounge bar presents a selection of delicious light snacks, beverages and iced wine spirits to match every moment of the day. The Sun Lounge menu is also available for room service 24 hours a day, while intimate and romantic private dinners can also be arranged during or after sunset time.
