When it comes to luxury hotels that are both photogenic and stylish, Cocoon Suites is one of the first Santorini cave hotels in Imerovigli that comes to mind.

This 5-star hotel is located directly on the main road of the town. The benefit of this is that some of the tastiest restaurants and most impressive tourist attractions are just a short walk away.

Cocoon Suites offer a spectacular view of the caldera that is difficult to compete with. You can enjoy panoramic views of the entire Aegean Sea from your own private cave pool or hot tub.

You can expect 24-hour room service, in-room candle-lit dinners, and even in-room massages. When you combine this with the luxurious, cave-style hotel rooms on offer, this combination equals a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It's the perfect hotel choice for a romantic getaway.

2. Honeymoon Petra Villas

As you might have guessed from the name, Honeymoon Petra Villas are designed with romantic getaways in mind. Booking here is especially fitting for special occasions like anniversaries and Santorini honeymoons.

The all-white colored rooms here are a true signature of Santorini's architectural style. It is safe to say that you will get a true and classic Santorini villa experience by coming here.

Expect to be provided with an abundance of stylish hotel rooms to choose from. Rooms range from large, 4-person honeymoon suites to an infinity pool suite. This suite features its own outdoor infinity pool to soak in and enjoy, along with an additional plunge pool.

It's a 15-minute walk from Skaros Rock which is a great place to watch the sunrise.

3. Santorini Princess Spa Hotel

This fancy 5-star hotel has a wide range of luxurious rooms to choose from. You can pick from their small and simple double rooms option, all the way to their honeymoon suites that can accommodate up to 4 people at a time.

Another impressive aspect of this stunning spa hotel is the outdoor public pool. What makes this main outdoor pool unique is it's one of the few heated pools on the entire island of Santorini. This means it isn't just a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, but it is accessible all year round.

Don't be afraid to pour yourself a refreshing glass of bubbly, and spend your winter evenings warming up in the water here or on-site sauna. Alternatively, you can rent a moped and explore Santorini's black sand beaches.

4. Kasimatis by La Perla - Adults-Only

Kasimatis in Imervogli is located at possibly the highest point of the caldera. This makes it more impressive than any old basic Santorini villa. If you stay a night here, you are provided with some of the most stunning views on the entire island.

It is easy to see why this 4-star hotel is highly enjoyed by so many people with its breathtaking views. Besides the views, all rooms have air-conditioning, free wifi, and a fully equipped flat-screen TV. This perfectly accommodates the various choices of outdoor amenities on offer, including both private pools and private hot tubs.

When it comes to Imervogli hotel rooms with stunning views, Kasimatis by La Perla has to be a strong consideration on anyone's list.

5. Kapari Natural Resort

The Kapari Natural Resort is a place perfect for those who want to wind down and relax. The luxurious rooms here are not only comfortable but they are made with natural materials for a more eco-friendly experience.

After an in-room massage, it is time to head down to the hotel's very own restaurant. You will find mouth-watering dishes here that are made from both local and homemade ingredients. These are irresistible, and you might find yourself inside the restaurant's doors for a lot longer than expected.

After experiencing all of the fancy facilities on offer, don't be afraid to take a walk outside. You will be glad to know the center of Imervogli is just 5-minute walk away. This means you can walk to see iconic Santorini tourist attractions such as the Thera Museum.

6. Above Blue Suites

A champion when it comes to Aegean sea views, Above Blue Suites is located high up at the top of the Imervogli cliffs. For this reason, it is no wonder why the views of the caldera from the room's private terraces are so epic here.

Above Blue Suites offers a choice of ten unique suites to choose from, each with favorable characteristics. One particularly spacious suite that you can book is their signature Above Blue Villa.

This villa is noticeably larger than the others available at a homely 130 meters squared. You can fit four people in this size!

The Above Blue Villa also includes two private bathrooms that have couple-sized showers.

I recommend visiting the nearby restaurant Avocado and trying the 'Tuna Tar Tar'.

Honeymoon Hotels with Private Pools

Below are my top hotel choices in Imerovigli for honeymooners. From soaking in a hot tub with private views over the Volcanoes to indulging in Greek cuisine from your hotel balcony. These hotels will not disappoint.

7. Ventus Paradiso Villa

Along with having your own romantic seating area for dining, by far the most impressive part of the outdoor balcony terrace is the outdoor cave pool.

Along with the additional premium amenities, you will be happy to know that free wifi and free private parking are also included at the villa.

8. Divine Cave Experience

Have you ever dreamt of staying in a cave?

Not just any cave in fact, but a highly luxurious one on the stunning island of Santorini. If you haven't a fantastic option is the Divine Cave Experience.

Inside your cave suite, you will find gorgeous rooms sculpted from pure white rock, allowing you to truly connect with the natural elements of the island. In addition to this, there is a comfortable range of suites offered here.

This starts with the more budget-friendly astral cave, all the way to the Divine Grand Suite with its own personal jacuzzi. Besides the fact that you can get your own indoor pool and private jacuzzi, the hotel here also offers car rentals.

This is an option I personally like, and it serves as a great way of exploring Santorini. You might even like to join an unmissable Santorini day trip and visit the Volcanoes or enjoy wine tasting.

9. Cavo Tagoo Santorini

When it comes to unmissable cave options, Cavo Tagoo Santorini is a fascinating place to stay for a night or two. Located on the outskirts of Imerovigli, you will find the more secluded location of this hotel both relaxing and less busy.

Cavo Tagoo Santorini is another 5-star hotel, which of course means it comes with a price tag. However, this newly built hotel has everything you could ever ask for a romantic stay. Looking for friendly staff to cater to you and your partner? It is here.

In addition to all of the great amenities above, Cavo Tagoo Santorini offers unmissable sunset views from both its suites and the main infinity pool.

10. Pegasus Suites & Spa

When it comes to high-end hotels in Imerovigli, Pegasus Suites & Spa sits up there as one at the top of the list. To say this is a luxury hotel is an understatement, and the price it costs to stay here definitely reflects that.

It is worth mentioning that the rooms here are exceptionally spacious. Up to 7 people can stay in them at once, and they are provided with everything from heated private pools to their own exclusive mini bar.

What makes Pegasus Suites & Spa noticeably unique is its on-site fitness center. This is rare for a Santorini hotel and it provides a solid option for those wanting to get a quick workout in.

After burning a few calories, feel free to check out the delicious gourmet restaurant directly inside of the hotel. This restaurant is known as Gastronomy and you can enjoy a magnificent candle-lit dinner with your intimate partner.

What else is special about Gastronomy at Pegasus Suites & Spa? You can take cooking lessons here as the hotel organizes residential cooking courses based on local Greek dishes.

11. SantAnna Luxury Suites

SantAnna Luxury Suites is another top-notch option in Santorini, although it does come with a price. It is not just the rooms that make this a visually appealing place, but the design of the hotel itself is beyond astonishing.

Luminous lights appear from all areas of the hotel as the sun goes down, creating an intimate atmosphere for you and your partner.

Besides the physical aspects of this hotel, I can't help but admire the location of it. SantAnna Luxury Suites lies just on the outskirts of Imerovirgli.

This means you can enjoy being close to town without staying in the central tourist area. The hotel is also only a 5-minute drive to Skaros Rock, which is a world-famous tourist attraction and a great place for a short hike.

12. CILON Suites

Coming in last on my list of best Santorini hotels is CILON Suites. This luxury hotel features rooms with private balconies and all the typical amenities that come with a good 4-star hotel.

CILON offers 5 different suite options to choose from in total. These suits range from the petite cave suite, all the way to their master suite which includes an impressive outdoor hot tub, minibar, and even a daily maid. The views over the Tholos Naftilos volcano are unbeatable.

If admiring the cliffs of the caldera is on your list? You can enjoy exactly that from the comfort of your own private terrace.
