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

Altana isn't just a hotel, it is an experience. The two brothers that run the hotel work tirelessly to curate the vacation of your dreams and all of the hotel staff are wonderful. Our room was clean and cozy with a gorgeous view of the caldera. The friendly staff answered all of our questions and took the time to help... More

From the moment you arrive, you feel that owner-brothers Marios and Christos and their team of staff and associates take full responsibility for your enjoyment of their beautiful, well restored, well-maintained and practical facility on the cliffside of the Santorini caldera. They completely cover concierge-services as well, arranging anything you wish to explore, be it sight-seeing, shopping, dining, or transportation.... More

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in July on a month long European trip. What a lovely experience we had. As all of the reviews state, Christos and Marios, the brothers who own the hotel, understand hospitality like no other. They are so welcoming, as are all of their staff, and so helpful. Their local knowledge is... More

We stayed in Altana locatec in Imerovigli a few months back. It was for sure our best stay in Santorini where we also stayed in Oia. The room was spacious. It gave directly on the caldera and the views were simply beyond words. The pictures taken do not give it justice. We also had a baby with us and the... More

After living on the island and filming our feature film Santorini Blue, I thought I had seen every amazing view. I was so wrong. The views from Altana are superb and unique. The hotel is of superior quality, with beautifully clean, elegant and modern cave houses. They include everything you need to feel right at home while in paradise. The... More

Everything about this hotel was perfect (especially our personal cave house!). The hosts Christos and Marios were incredible throughout our stay, and offered so much help and suggestions for food and activities. We were so welcomed, and would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have an incredible experience.

My daughter and I had a truly amazing holiday at the Altana. We were created from the transportation bus and our luggage taken to our suite. We had an upgrade to the blissfully, wonderful superior cave suite. We then met with Carlos for a traditional Santorini welcome. Carlos recommendations on places to visit/transport/restaurants were spot on. The location, cleanliness, staff,... 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
