I rate Katikies as the most beautiful hotel in Santorini, from landscape, architecture to quality of service. Some points to note are that if you are traveling with a family, guests under the age of 13 will not be able to accept the reservation. The hotel located in an isolated area, so there are very few cafes and bars around, the nearest is in Fira 10km away, the nearest beach is also 2km away. You also have to climb quite a lot to get to the hotel.
