Immortalized as one of the most famous infinity pools on Earth (thanks to nearly a dozen magazine covers), the cliff-hanger here seems to make you feel you could easily swim off the edge into the caldera's blue bay 1,000 feet below—this is but one of the highlights here at a luxury resort hotel that even (big compliment) the locals respect. These 20 houses, all connected by flights of stairs, was one of the first hotel complexes built after the big 1956 earthquake. Inside, guest rooms have been converted from old wineries and renovated in archetypal skafta (vaulted cave) fashion, with clever nooks for beds, sculpted walls, and full kitchens; all are simply but stunningly furnished with handmade wooden pieces and weavings. Each house has its own terrace, and two have private pools.
