Hotel's airy blue dining overlooking the outdoor pool in Santorini, Greece

Caldera’s Dolphin Suites

Santorini - Greece


Escape the crowds and discover a quieter side to Santorini at this beautiful boutique retreat, where the sunsets are spectacular and the staff will treat you like a long-lost friend.

The exclusive Caldera’s Dolphin Suites are perched on a clifftop in a peaceful village location, with incredible views of Santorini’s famous Caldera. Every room has a sea-facing balcony where you can begin the day with an indulgent private breakfast, and marvel at the magnificent colours as the sun melts into the horizon each evening.

It’s a small hotel at just 20 rooms and suites, so the facilities are limited to a pool and a casual bar/restaurant, but the fantastic staff are always on hand to advise and assist with local dinner recommendations and tips for exploring the island.

Nearby Attractions

The hotel is situated on the edge of Megalochori, a peaceful and picturesque village in the south west of Santorini. This part of the island is quieter and less touristy than better-known Thira and Oia, ideal if you’re looking for a more relaxing break.

In the centre of the village you’ll find a square with a few nice tavernas and restaurants, and the Boutari Winery is right next to the hotel, offering tastings, tours and delicious home-cooked lunches.

Caldera’s Dolphin provides a free daily shuttle service to Thira town and Perivolos Beach, where complimentary sun beds and umbrellas are available for hotel guests. Santorini’s most famous sunset spot, the pretty village of Oia, is about 40 minutes’ drive away at the northern end of the island.


Caldera’s Dolphin never feels crowded, with just 20 rooms and suites. The décor is bright and contemporary, with a beachy vibe and incredible sea views from your private balcony.

All accommodation includes satellite TV, free WiFi, safe and tea/coffee making facilities, and some suites also have a private outdoor whirlpool, perfect for enjoying those Santorini sunsets.

The heated outdoor pool is another great spot for admiring the views, and there is a poolside bar and restaurant. This is also where breakfast is served in the morning, or you can opt for a private breakfast on your balcony instead.

The Villages of Santorini

The village of Oia is by far the most photographed spot on Santorini, and while it is undeniably beautiful, there are plenty of other gorgeous villages on the island that don’t suffer from the same stifling crowds. Caldera’s Dolphin is on the outskirts of Megalochori, which dates back to the 17th century and is home to impressive mansions, wine caves and a shady central square where locals gather to play backgammon. Just a few minutes away is Pyrgos, another impossibly picturesque village situated at the island’s highest point. Here you’ll find a ruined castle, beautiful houses and hillside cafés with spectacular sunset views.
