My wife and I stayed in Altana for 2 nights in August. It is probably the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in . As soon as we climbed the stairs leading to our room when we arrived, we were amazed at the view. We had a superior apartment overlooking the Caldera and our own front patio. The view from... More

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in Greece. Our stay in Santorini was absolutely incredible thanks to the staff at Altana (and the views!). Altana is pretty much at the top of Imerovogli which is the highest point on the island on the caldera side. This means the views are absolutely breathtaking. We didn't even feel a... More

We cannot recommend Altana more highly. The hotel and views are breathtaking (the photos really don't do them justice) and the service we received was the best I've experienced. Altana's location is unbeatable. We visited Oia during our stay (an easy bus ride away) but were glad to be staying in Imerovigli, which is just as beautiful but far less... More

We had a lovely stay at Altana in a cave villa. This hotel is amazing from the first welcome from either Cristos or Mario, the two brothers who run the hotel. The introduction from Mario to the hotel and island was second to none with recommendations on what to do and where to eat. It felt like we were visiting... More

My wife and I spent a portion of our honeymoon in Santorini and were fortunate to stay at the Altana property. The owners (Christos and Marcos), as well as the staff led by Johanna could not have been nicer and more helpful. As soon as we checked in, they could not have been more accommodating in terms of helping us... More

Not stayed here but every evening we visit the nicest bar in Imerovigli on the path to Fira. It plays great chilled out tunes and the barman is very friendly. Sit outside and relax. Only room for two small groups outside but more room inside. If you visit the WC upstairs you will also get a great sneak view of... More

From the moment you step into the reception area at Altana and meet twin brothers Mario and Christo, you know your stay is going to be amazing. The boys immediately made us feel like a part of their family, offering helpful advice each and every day to ensure we got the most out of our stay in Santorini. Without their... More

We celebrated our wedding at Altana back in June, which we organized from abroad with their help. Just saying everything was perfect and unforgettable. No words to thank Altana organization. Bekiaris brothers, Christos and Marios, run this boutique hotel with breathtaking views with an incredibly care for guests. They effectively bring to the next level what is normally already considered... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This charming boutique hotel brings centuries-old style, history and hospitality luxuriously to life at the highest point of Santorini’s breathtaking volcanic Caldera, in Imerovigli. The restoration project of a Traditional Mansion owned by a family of generations of Captains that began in 1979 established Altana Hotel in 1983 as the first high standard guest house in the area of Imerovigli and certainly among the first on the Santorinian Caldera. This historical building complex dating back over a century, between 1779 and 1883 has been preserved, restored and renovated to meet the highest standards of modern luxury. The 6 apartments and 8 suites at Altana, each unique, blend traditional local architecture and aesthetics with modern amenities that tastefully cater for any true traveler's comfort. A unique sensitivity to detail and restored original objects revive the simple elegance of tradition and pay homage to the history of the mansion. A deeply personal service philosophy offers a unique hospitality experience in a setting surrounded by an endless horizon of blue in a bird’s eye view of the Santorinian Caldera, the Volcano, and the whole of the Southern Aegean Sea, including the neighboring islands. Enjoy a dip under the sun in the highest swimming pool on the island and feel free against the sea breeze. Lose your breath to the vibrant sunrises and mystical sunsets from your private veranda. Relax in your suite’s private Jacuzzi pool or rejuvenate your mind and body with a plethora of massage, yoga, chi-kung and beauty treatments. Enjoy homemade breakfast till noon or experiment with local homemade delicacies, sweets and wine-tasting at ‘Kafeneion’, our preserved cave-house bistro. Sample a world of gastronomy with our cooking lessons, gourmet degustation & private candle-lit dinner experiences, which incorporate our own organically grown produce straight from the volcanic soil of the Altana farm. Savor the atmosphere of relaxation and discovery that will inspire some of the most romantic and exciting moments of your life. Dive into the magic of something old and discover something new...welcome to Altana, let us immerse you into the magic of Santorini. ... more   less
