10 Best Hotels With Cave Pools In Santorini, Greece - Updated 2024

| 6 min read

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Greece? One pictures the ruins of ancient Greek temples and of course, the beautiful island of Santorini. Thousands of years ago, the island was a flourishing community under Minoan civilization. A violent eruption, however, sealed the fate of these communities including the Minoan civilization itself. Today, Santorini is a major tourist attraction in Greece, all thanks to the picturesque Cycladic architectures and the wonderful Aegean sunset. The island also lies within an active caldera, making it a one-of-a-kind destination. If you want to explore more of this crescent-shaped island, check out our list of the best hotels with cave pools in Santorini, Greece.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to cave pool. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 20, 2024.
