Unpretentious, Katikies is a very cool boutique hotel with a "minimalist goes Mediterranean" style, with illusion-line pool, sleek little bar, restaurant with scrubbed tables and at night, perched on an impossible rocky outcrop, a dining room with four tables in a white calico tent. Perched on a cliff in the picturesque village of Oia the most westerly point of Santorini, Katikies offers an exquisite collection of 21 rooms and suites with dramatic sea views. Entrance steps lead down between whitewashed rooftops and sprawling crimson bougainvillaea to the different sea-facing terraces and to an enticing swimming pool which appears to extend into the Caldera itself.  The view is breathtaking, the ambience exotic yet comfortable, and the service impeccable. From the moment you arrive at Katikies, you know that you are staying in a very special place. The standard of the rooms, the service, the food and the location of this boutique hotel all combine to make it a truly memorable place. "A handsome hideout where couples loll around the curvy infinity pool and bathe in tubs with views of the sea." Condé Nast Traveller.


Katikies has 2 extraordinary infinity pools on the edge of the cliff, merging with sea beyond, a sunbathing deck with an open air Jacuzzi and a library with Internet facility. Massages are also available on request. Later in the evening, during Oia's famous sunset, guests can enjoy the ceremonial wine tasting and experience a selection of the famous Santorinian wines.


The charming staff at Katikies are able to serve breakfast in each suite. Snacks and drinks are served at the Pool Bar. Romantic candlelight dinners are served in the Katikies open-air gourmet restaurant. The "White Cave" Restaurant offers a full menu of Greek cuisine with oriental influences in a natural cave overlooking the Caldera. At the Pool Bar, guests can enjoy cooling drinks, light snacks, cocktails & champagne. Just relax to the strains of the soft music and marvel again at the striking views.
