In detail

This is true living on the edge as On The Rocks Hotel is perched on the cliffs over the deep blue of the Aegean. Every view is a stunning mix of the whitewashed walls against the clear sea and sky. All the rooms have views of the volcano and a number of the suites are carved into the rock. On The Rocks expresses the characteristic architectural style of Santorini; freely flowing staircases embrace the complex and give access to the residences.

Sit by the pool with the cooling summer breeze on your face. Then take a boat trip to a neighbouring island and view the caldera from a boat. In the evening, wander into the delightful village of Imerovigli to dine in a local taverna and return to On The Rocks for cocktails under the stars.
