Katikies, Santorini, Greece

The hotel spends $29,000 per year just on white paint.

By Alex Martin

In the whimsical, cascading village of Oia, you’ll find Katikies built high into the cliff and overlooking the Caldera and Aegean Sea. The hotel is comprised of cottages connected by bridges and stairways, and everything is spotlessly gleaming in whitewash — the hotel spends $29,000 per year just on white paint.

Mikrasia Restaurant is sublime: The rooftop location means the views are out of this world, especially when the sun sets, and the cuisine is just as exceptional. Go for the four-course tasting menu to sample the best Greek fare.

Top suite: Master Suite from $2,210 per night

In the know: The Katikies Club is a network of well-connected concierges who are on hand to create bespoke experiences just for you, as well as providing VIP access to museums, archeological sites, art galleries, wineries and boutiques.
