Are you dreaming of turquoise waters, breakfast in bed, spa massages, and afternoon cocktails with a sunset view? You’re not alone. The most luxurious Greek hotels in the Mediterranean have you covered for an amazing wellness escape.
While I’m looking for my next weekend destination, two are usually the factors that play a significant role in my choice of place. Firstly, I will examine the flights’ convenience and the availability of the best hotels in the area.
I always look for accommodation that offers the ultimate experience for a unique gateway. From sunset views to top-notch restaurants, room dining, and wellness center, I opt for a hotel, which will make me sad for checking-out.
And that usually means a few things; room service, gym, spa, massages, excellent restaurants, comfy rooms, and amazing vibes.
If you want some inspiration on where to go once you visit the beautiful country of Greece, you are in the right place. Catch those Mediterranean summer vibes by staying in of the hotels below and return home refreshed and sun-kissed.
1) Greek hotels choice number 1: Canaves Oia Suites & Spa, *****
Where: Oia, Santorini, Cyclades, Greece
Why: Views from the room, sunset, cave suites
How: Either boat or plane from Athens
Cost: Starting from 1000$ per night
Santorini is one of the best islands in the world, by far. If you’ve never crossed paths with that place, make sure you will reach there once in your life and catch the sunset in Oia.
The traditional white and blue houses on the cliff, the sky turning purple, and the breathtaking views of the Aegean sea below will show you how magical the world can be.
Now imagine getting those views from your private whirlpool, with a glass of champagne, room service, and your favorite music in the background.
It sounds like a dream because it is. There’s more to that dream; a gourmet restaurant, well-decorated comfortable suites, an excellent spa, and a private motor yacht for cruises in the Aegean Sea.
Make that dream happen by booking now.
2) Greek hotels choice number 2: Cavo Tagoo Mykonos *****
Where: Mykonos, Cyclades, Greece
Why: Award-winning hotel, walking distance from Mykonos town, unique, minimalistic decor
How: Either boat or plane from Athens
Cost: Starting from $1000 per night
If I could pick the best-decorated hotel in the world, that would be it. (And it’s not because of my minimalistic sense, I promise.)
Just one visit will convince you. The wooden stands that seem to flow on the water, the overflow pool with the changing colors, and the sunset views of Mykonos town will make you feel like you’re in another world.
Extra points to the gym, which keeps you in shape daily, the buffet breakfast (or the floating breakfast in your private pool, why not?!), as well as the Cavo Tagoo Golden Spa with a variety of services.
You don’t want to miss a night from that place. Book your stay here.

If you haven’t come across that hotel already, I’m happy you just discovered it. Its swimming pool in the shape of a lagoon and the direct access from the units and bungalows make it one of the most popular accommodations on Instagram.
But besides its instagrammable image, it offers a variety of leisure services for every taste, whether you want a magnificent experience in the spa, yoga classes, personal trainer, or Mediterranean cuisine. Extra points to the beautiful sandy beach nearby (only 300 meters). The sea lovers can get some tan while the hotel provides free sunbeds and umbrellas.
