At the highest point of the Caldera, perched on black volcanic cliffs, Above Blue Hotel is situated in the famous Imerovigli village. True to its name, which translates into Peaceful Vistas, this picturesque village that forms the geographical extension of Fira owes its well earned reputation as the best place to stay in Santorini that combines tranquillity and serenity with a privileged location on the Caldera's highest point. This allows for unsurpassed panoramic views of the Aegean, the Oia Village ant the Therassia Island.

"Amazing Views & Sweet Team of People Working at the Hotel"
Above Blue is located in Imerovigli, which is a quieter area at the highest point of the caldera (no joke) and with the most amazing sunset views. My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights to celebrate our two year anniversary and buying of a new home. When we arrived in Santorini, we had been in Greece for another two days prior, and I had a delayed luggage bag for a total of 78 hours. When we got to Above Blue, the front desk was so sweet to offer to help locate our bag by making calls. They even allowed for me to wash my clothes free of charge. They were so thoughtful that when we were heading out on one of our private tours they gave us a warm blanket as it was going to be a windy day. It was the little things that made it so incredible and we are so grateful to this team of great people. I loved how our hotel was in the middle of Fira and Oia (the two larger towns). It wasn't too far of a walk to Fira, where the market area is. My husband and I would go there for shopping or dinner and such, and then we came back to our more quieter and romantic stay in Imerovigli. We also had a jacuzzi with a breathtaking view that we enjoyed so much! Highly recommend Above Blue Suites!!
"Heaven on Earth"
We stayed in the Villa. We were only 3 (my husband, our 20 year old daughter, and myself), but there is room for 5 or 6 if you needed to fit more. And the extra wing with a day bed and sauna was just over the top! Go to their site and you will see why it is Heaven on Earth. Exactly as pictured. This was our first trip to Santorini, so we had no idea what town to stay in and then, which property to stay at. If you don't need night life right next door, and are capable of the 40+ minute walk to Fira, (it's a lovely walk), Imerovigli is the town to stay in. Imerovigli is the highest point in Santorini, and the time of year we went (early October), provided an unobstructed view of the gorgeous sunset. Above Blue is quiet, luxurious, and immaculate, with impeccable yet friendly service. When Air Traffic Control threatened to strike, the staff did everything to help us rearrange flights and find comparable accommodations for the extra days (unfortunately Above Blue was booked for the extra days - no surprise there, it's an amazing place). Every day we stepped out onto our balcony and had to pinch ourselves. Fantastic breakfast included, served promptly and the one and only time something was missing, it appeared in less than 2 minutes. Every arrangement, every request, met with an aim-to-please attitude. The perfect blend of a first class resort without all the pomp and circumstance. And you genuinely feel and know that you are in Santorini. Do not stay at a large resort if you want to feel Santorini. If you want night life and crowds, stay in Fira or Oia. We found Imerovigli the perfect intermediary location, and Above Blue Villa nothing short of amazing.
Me and my partner stayed here during our trip to Santorini. To say I enjoyed my stay here would be an understatement. It's a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting. The views from the hotel out to sea are stunning. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The hotel and the rooms were so clean and lovely. The staff were perfect. They were so lovely and friendly, and they work so hard. The food was also perfect, so fresh and tastey. The facilities at the hotel are the best of what you will get any where on the island. The location is also perfect being situated near shops and restaurants. It's also only a few minutes from the main town if you want to venture out for the day/night. If your thinking of staying here don't think twice just book. You won't be disappointed. If I return to Santorini I will be staying here! I loved sitting on the balcony outside my room watching the sun go down behind the ocean in the evening. Amazing!
We stayed at the smallest of the suites, the Pearl. Advantages: - very friendly staff, happy to help with recommendations - difficult to see how you can get better views - clean - decent wifi speed - free complimentary drink on arrival, complimentary dessert in the evening - breakfast served on your own balcony, good selection of a variety of foods Areas for improvement: - I really struggled to find any areas for improvement, everything was impeccable. The only thing I'd improve would be a wider range of bathrobe sizes. I'm only 1.73m tall, not overweight, and it was quite tight on me.
"Going the extra miles"
I would like to comment on the front desk reception Mr George as I was requesting for a vacuum cleaner in order for me to vacuum seal the gowns my wife brought for the trip to have our wedding photos taken. Mr George actually told me that they do not have any in the hotel but he will bring the vacuum cleaner over from his home the next day so that i can vacuum up the bag. That was really touching as i hardly seen staff (maybe he is the boss' not sure.) so committed towards excellent service towards hotel guests. Hotel room was fantastic and view from the balcony is simply amazing. Staffs in the hotel are super friendly and can see that they are a total committed towards making the guests a pleasant stay. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staffs from Above Blue, you guys are fantastic! A BIG THANK YOU for making our stay a very comfortable and pleasant one.
