If you seek total, indulgent, guilt-inducing relaxation set in one of most spectacular places on earth, try the Atrina Traditional Houses in Oia, Santorini. I loved every minute of it.
A complex of traditional Santorini "cave" houses built directly into the sides of the cliffs, Atrina's 15 rooms each have a private terrace with 180-degree views of the Santorini caldera - the view takes your breath away. Sunny blue skies and the Aegean Sea as far as your eyes can see, accented by crisp white and blue Greek houses nestled on the cliffs. The hotel's location provides tranquility and privacy, especially at the infinity pool that appears to drop into the water on the horizon.
Daily breakfast is a treat - Greek yogurt, fresh fruit salad, pastries and French press coffee served on your private terrace with a magnificent view. A total indulgence, but worth saving for.
