Santorini: Thireas Hotel
Summertime in Santorini, pure bliss, right? Yes, as long as you have a relaxing 'go-to' spot to cool-off on the simmering afternoons so hot you can't drum up enough energy to hike to one of the beautiful beaches! Located in Fira, Thireas Hotel is ideal and reasonably priced when you account for all of the Santorini hotel necessities...a breathtaking view, a hot-tub (yes, even in the summer) and complimentary breakfast. Their pool is stunning, and if you love waking up to coffee and breakfast in the morning, they deliver to your balcony. nai parakaló!
- Brunch isn't typical brunch in Santorini. Plan for actual breakfast and early shopping/lunch to beat the heat, then hit the pool. Prepare for dinner w/ a gorgeous sunset view (don't settle...you are only in Santorini once).
- Sounds cliche, but eat a greek salad every day....the vegetables are fresh!
- And, of course, coordinate your outfits beforehand. This is an Instagram worthy scene you don't want to miss out on.
