I agonized on the location in Santorini for walks between towns and the sunset. This location could not have been better. The sunsets were better from the hotel than Oia. We walked to both Fira for dinner Oia for lunch in Ammoundi Bay. The breakfast at the hotel each morning was delicious. The brothers and Joanna were exceptionally welcoming and...

Loved the location, with all the gorgeous views. The room was clean and so Greece, I felt like I was in a movie. The quaint breakfast , with a choice to sit outside was perfect. The pool felt as though it was our private pool.

We spent 10 days in the honeymoon suite, I cannot recommend Altana enough. The honeymoon suite is completely worth it! The breakfast and special meal were incredible, local recommendations couldn't have been better by the wonderful hosts. Thank you so very much!

We had an incredible stay here. Beautiful rooms with unbelievable views. Great service. Great breakfast. We also had awesome wine and cheese plates in the breakfast room. Lots of great tips from the brothers who own the place on how to have a great santorini experience without the crowds!

The brothers and Johanna were always available and willing to help. Thanks to their recommendations on restaurants, we enjoyed extraordinary meals. The...

My husband and I visited for three nights over our honeymoon in June 2016. Our hosts, twin brothers who grew up in the hospitality business with their parents at this hotel, were well versed in wine and food and helped tailor every aspect of our visit. The brothers were both incredibly generous and we were not disappointed in a single...

My boyfriend Danny and I visited Santorini last month and had the pleasure of staying at Altana for 3 days. This was a long desired dream trip of mine, and I had gone through a travel agent to book our venue as there are SO many wonderful hotels that I could not make up my mind. She recommended Altana right...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This charming boutique hotel brings centuries-old style, history and hospitality luxuriously to life at the highest point of Santorini’s breathtaking volcanic Caldera, in Imerovigli. The restoration project of a Traditional Mansion owned by a family of generations of Captains that began in 1979 established Altana Hotel in 1983 as the first high standard guest house in the area of Imerovigli and certainly among the first on the Santorinian Caldera. This historical building complex dating back over a century, between 1779 and 1883 has been preserved, restored and renovated to meet the highest standards of modern luxury. The 6 apartments and 8 suites at Altana, each unique, blend traditional local architecture and aesthetics with modern amenities that tastefully cater for any true traveler's comfort. A unique sensitivity to detail and restored original objects revive the simple elegance of tradition and pay homage to the history of the mansion. A deeply personal service philosophy offers a unique hospitality experience in a setting surrounded by an endless horizon of blue in a bird’s eye view of the Santorinian Caldera, the Volcano, and the whole of the Southern Aegean Sea, including the neighboring islands. Enjoy a dip under the sun in the highest swimming pool on the island and feel free against the sea breeze. Lose your breath to the vibrant sunrises and mystical sunsets from your private veranda. Relax in your suite’s private Jacuzzi pool or rejuvenate your mind and body with a plethora of massage, yoga, chi-kung and beauty treatments. Enjoy homemade breakfast till noon or experiment with local homemade delicacies, sweets and wine-tasting at ‘Kafeneion’, our preserved cave-house bistro. Sample a world of gastronomy with our cooking lessons, gourmet degustation & private candle-lit dinner experiences, which incorporate our own organically grown produce straight from the volcanic soil of the Altana farm. Savor the atmosphere of relaxation and discovery that will inspire some of the most romantic and exciting moments of your life. Dive into the magic of something old and discover something new...welcome to Altana, let us immerse you into the magic of Santorini. ... more   less
