A friends’ getaway sounds like a great plan!
Greece is always a good idea. The European country has so much culture, history, and natural beauty that you can lose yourself on its dramatic coasts. Its sun-kissed beaches, glamorous nightlife, luxury hotels, and hip islands are pages in the album of a memorable vacation in the Mediterranean. And the best part is that there’s something for everyone: beaches for water babies, nightclubs for party hoppers, archeological marvels for history buffs, and vineyards for wine enthusiasts. With so much to offer, how do you pick an island, a city, and a hotel?
We’re making it easier for you with this recommendation: Santorini. It was formed after a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago sank the center of this island in the Aegean Sea. The crater of the volcano is underwater and the pictures of soaring cliffs, pristine beaches, and white-washed buildings you see on Instagram now are part of this wonder.
You can make an album of your own pretty sunset pictures from the CSky Hotel that promises uninterrupted views of the sea and the caldera. Perched on the cliffs of the exclusive village of Imerovigli, the charming hotel is a lovely point to watch sunsets. Here, you can have a relaxing family holiday or plan an exciting getaway with your friends. The hotel is offering an exclusive deal on Travelzoo right now. You can stay in a deluxe suite with two bedrooms and two en-suite bathrooms for $399 upwards of four people. The suite has a living and dining room, private veranda with sunbeds, and a private Jacuzzi on the terrace with incredible views of the caldera. Plus, there’s free breakfast for four included in the price!

From family-run taverns to upscale restaurants, the gastronomical experiences are plenty in Santorini. One thing that should definitely make it to your list—especially if this becomes a friends’ getaway—is a vineyard tour. Santorini has a surprising variety of wines and the flavor is unique, thanks to its volcanic soil and indigenous grapes (Assyrtiko is extremely popular). Ask the hotel concierge for recommendations for winery tours and take a bottle back as a souvenir.

The popular Oia village is just four kilometers away from the hotel—this is the place that’s synonymous with Santorini sunsets with the white buildings with blue domes. The hotel can also arrange for island tours and excursions, so you can see Fira town, visit the Red Beach, and climb the Nea Kameni volcano.
