It is more than 11 years since we last set foot in the Majestic Hotel, on the outskirts of Santorini’s capital Fira, but I mean it in a good way when I say that little has changed. My daughters may have grown from toddlers to teenagers (seemingly overnight) but the same high standards and bright, luxurious complex that I remember from 2012 remain front and centre at the Majestic.
A stay at the Nefeles Luxury Suites is what Santorini dreams are made of. With its nine cave suites, ingeniously hewn out of the cliffside, directly opposite the caldera that makes this Greek island so distinctive, in the capital Fira, just staying in and feasting on the view is enough to make guests feel very special.
Our three night stay at the Katharos Villas, at the edge of Oia, on beautiful Santorini, begins perfectly.
