Katikies Hotel – SantoriniLike0

Condé Nast Traveler Gold List 2011 – Travel and Leisure award 2012 – A Santorini legend and leading hotel in Greece, Katikies The Hotel is located 300 feet above the dazzling blue Caldera basin in the picturesque village of Oia, on the most westerly point of Santorini and is approximately 18km from the airport.

Oia, although quieter than Fira, is famous for its legendary sunsets and a lively cultural scene and impressive array of exquisite, high end boutiques.

The hotel is a picturesque balance of harmony and natural beauty. One of the most romantic hotels we know. Sunsets are beautiful in Santorini, the entire hotel faces the sea and is in the perfect spot for sunsets, watch it at the sunset restaurant. The two infinity pools also provide panoramic views of the water, as does the Katikies Restaurant, which consists of four candlelit tables on a hidden veranda. It is immaculate, cleverly styled and the rooms although minimalist are in keeping with the whole feel of the place. Alexander (manager, who remembers every guest’s name) will welcome you and always make sure you are so well taken care of. They have an iPOD preloaded with great music in every room – not a big deal as we always bring our iPod, but this little touch is simply the best! Enjoy the pictures! The lounge chairs surrounding the main pools are often claimed early in the morning, if they’re all taken, head to one of the two Jacuzzi or the small cave pool (open seasonally).

    To be honest, right now I would stay just about anywhere on Santorini to enjoy those views! But yes, if I had a choice, then surely this hotel wins it. I can´t stop staring at the cave pools. That combination of colors is jut too mesmerizing. I think the most beautiful hotels are those deliberately designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape, like this one. And the fact that it´s built on different levels only adds to its unique character.

    Amazing! I stayed in Oia when I went to Santorini and it’s by far the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.

  • You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • We just had a long 3 day weekend in the UAE and I LOVED it! 
I’m thinking of starting a global petition where we can have 3 day weekend all over the world! 
What do you think? Wouldn’t you LOVE a 3 day weekend!?
  • Truth: I’ve come to terms a long time ago that, if you are not motivating me, praying for me, loving me, inspiring me or trying to build with me... then, you are a distraction. 
For a long time I’ve felt the pressure of social media and I’ve learnt to deal with it. 
We live in a society that is continuously looking for happiness, dreams and goals out there for the next best thing to feel ‘happiness’ and ‘social acceptance’ but, we seem to forget that we are ALIVE, and that is all we need right now. 
If you agree leave a ♥️. Thank you for being with me throughout all these years.
  • Right this second, where I am... and where I want to be and it’s f*** incredible ♥️

  • Are you a beach person or a mysterious desert lover?? I have to admit I love the beach but the desert has its own magic too! 😊
Back in the desert 🌵 and it’s hot but I can’t wait for the weather to start cooling off here! Which one do you love more?
  • What’s your favorite animal? Mine is the elephant. 
Those who know me well, know how I constantly talk about the dark side to elephant tourism that many people just don’t seem to be aware of… but you need to know this! 
Elephants are endangered species and should be in the wild, and the ONLY way to ride an elephant is by taming it with a process which is called Phajaan, or “the crush”.
It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move with them tied down. Check it out on YouTube. 
So please don’t ride elephants, at any cost, ride bicycles instead. 
This photo was taken in an elephant sanctuary in North of Thailand in 2016
May the power of a thousand elephants give you the strength to face the troubles ahead. ♥️
  • I’m curious to know... Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? ♥️
  • People always say: “Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. 
The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every single day and that is ok because that’s what it means to be human ♥️ #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Believe me, with the crazy errands I’m running around for today, I wouldn’t mind dropping it all and being back here where my only concern would be tan lines 😊 Who is with me? 😊
Happy Friday!! ❤️
  • Leaving Lebanon is never easy. Thank you for those with insane magic in them, those who danced through the nights till the mornings with me, those who took road trips with me, those who loved me, those who ate ice cream with me every day, those who made efforts to see me, those who competed with me for the best tan lines and for those friends who always were undeniably themselves with me. You know who you are ♥️🇱🇧
