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.

  • There are so many beautiful view points in Dubrovnik that’s easy to find. This one was from a place called Panorama Bar, views of the Old City,
the Lapad Bay and the nearby islands.

  • The gates of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Angkor empire. There are 5 gates to the capital, built in the 12th century. The main gate was made with sculptures of 54 gods, one on each side, and the same number of demons on the other. I got that eerie feeling while driving through. I was in a Tuk Tuk and couldn’t help but stop and take a deep breath before entering, my heart was beating out of my chest. I’ve only made it to 2 gates but would love to go back and learn more. Looking at the picture got all the feelings back 💕
Thanks to @beautifulcambodia for guiding me!
  • You will always be the one person I’ll never stop looking for in a crowded place 💕
  • A little green overdose and into the jungle 🦋
  • I am made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever loved me, cared or inspired me or spoken one word of encouragement to me. Who I am is because of the people in my life 💕
  • They told me I had to be ready at 4:30am to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat, the UNESCO site and the largest religious monument in the world. A Tuk Tuk drove me to the site, it was about 30 minutes off-road(ish), dark with no street lights and it was cold. I sat outside the temple gates looking at absolutely nothing, total darkness. I couldn’t see a thing for an hour. Then, sunrise... and I start seeing shadows of the temple and colors in the sky and there it was. They said that I was one of the luckiest ones because October is the wettest season and so they rarely get a clear sky at sunrise. And here I was, staring and what was once a black endless nothing to a place I always dreamed of ever seeing! 💕
  • You know how sometimes, your life is so perfect you’re afraid for the next moment, because it couldn’t possibly be quite as good? That’s what it feels like being in Cambodia for the first time.
  • Permission to call it my own... permission to hold on to whatever I fall in love with.
  • It was the last morning in London @thesavoylondon - I always get emotional leaving this city! A place I once called home 💕Happy weekend everyone!
  • Spent one morning with Annee on @demamielskin farm where she taught me what she learned on Chinese medicine, meditation and the way her essential oils were made. I even got to make my own! Her products are sold on @netaporter and she has a 3 year waiting list!!!! She’s an incredible woman and partnered up with @virginatlantic to provide the ‘Altitude oil’ for upper class passengers. #LivefromVirgin
