Are you currently planning a romantic holiday to Santorini? Then you’re probably looking for one of those spectacular cave hotels in Santorini that come with a pool overlooking the caldera.
The best advice I can give you? Book your cave hotel in Santorini well in advance cause a lot of them already tend to sell out more than 6 months in advance.
⭐️ Don’t have time to go through all of these different hotels on this list? No need to worry! The absolute best cave hotel with a pool in Santorini in my opinion is Altana Heritage Suites. It has about 564 stellar reviews so you can’t go wrong with it!⭐️
And yes, if you want a nice cave suite in Santorini, overlooking the caldera, your holiday won’t come cheap. But for most of us Santorini is a once in a lifetime destination and one where you do want to splurge on your accommodation.
Especially if you’re visiting in the shoulder season you want to book a hotel on the caldera of Santorini and not on the mainland. Otherwise chances are very high that your terrace or swimming pool will be in the shade all day and the amount of wind will actually make it feel cold. You don’t have that problem on the caldera.
So without further ado, here are the very best cave hotels in Santorini with a pool.
