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.

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is. 
This is called The Mirrorcube - camouflaged mirrored walls reflecting the surrounding. I can’t wait to return!
  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
