Avant Garde Suites

Last updated: 05 January, 2024

Those who want their holidays far from the madding crowds of Oia, Kamari and Fira, can look upon the Avant Garde Suites as the choice alternative.  

It offers spacious rooms with bright pop-art furniture, and resin-moulded chaise longues around an infinity pool stretching towards precipitous cliffs that makes you feel like you’ve booked into a Bond villain’s lair. There’s a spa and a pool bar that also sells snacks, but no restaurant.  

Unlike the conventional sunsets on Santorini, the hotel’s northwards view takes in the two volcanic islets and is considered – by Santorini cognoscenti – to offer a more complete view than Oia. 

The hotel is a short drive from Vlychada village and the nearby archaeological site.

Surrounding area

Situated at the north shore of the inner caldera crescent, the hotel stands alone and is not within walking distance of bars, restaurants or nightlife. You need your own wheels to move around, or taxis are easily available. 

As a bonus, however, the hotel is built over the only accessible beach inside the caldera, a ten-minute walk downcliff.
