When it comes to the , you probably picture blue-and-white cliffside towns, ancient monuments, and sandy beaches. And that’s all there for you to explore! But if you’re looking for a little down time on your Greek getaway, what better place to relax than your own private plunge pool? Soak in the views of the sea as you splash into your own private paradise. Here are seven hotels where you can do just that.
1. Mystique Luxury Collection Hotel, Oia
Pricing for Mystique, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Santorini
It doesn’t get much better than this five-pearl gem in . While not every room has a private plunge pool, a fair number do. We recommend booking one of the Secrecy Villas, which not only have private pools, but also a private fitness room with a treadmill, bicycle, power plate, spa bed, and weights. Once you’ve left your sanctuary, you can head to the 150-year-old wine cave for a romantic candlelit dinner for two. (Yes, you’ll need reservations.)
2. Sun Rocks Hotel, Firostefani
Pricing for Sun Rocks Boutique Hotel
If you’re traveling as a couple, consider staying at this couples-only resort. Most of the rooms have private hot tubs, but some even have private plunge pools. In any event, each and every room has a private terrace with sweeping views of the ocean. You can book a Grand Suite to ensure you have a private plunge pool, but if you want to splurge for something a little more exciting, you can book the Annexe Room, which has a private infinity pool.
3. Hotel Palladium, Platys Gialos
Pricing for Palladium Boutique Hotel
For a laid-back experience in , you can stay at the , which caters mainly to couples, though families and groups of friends end up here, too. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the town’s shopping and dining– it’s only a 10-minute ride — as well as to the airport and ferry port. Looking for your own plunge pool? Book a Superior Double Room with Private Pool.
4. Greco Philia – Luxury Suites & Villas, Elia Beach
Pricing for Greco Philia | Hotel Boutique
As its name suggests, this five-pearl property comprises a collection of 30 suites and villas, some of which come with hot tubs and plunge pools. Guests should note that children are not allowed here, meaning you’ll find a certain level of serenity among the adult clientele. There are multiple room types that have the private pools, but be sure to check ahead to ensure your accommodation is one. We recommend the Two Bedroom Villa or the Deluxe Villa.
5. Cavo Tagoo, Mykonos Town
Pricing for Cavo Tagoo
Looking for a livelier stay? The 80-room offers guests quite a social scene at its pool bar, not to mention it’s only a 20-minute walk (or free five-minute shuttle) into the center of town, which is filled with nightlife. But that’s not to say you can’t find peace and quiet here. The Diamond Villa has a stunning private infinity pool, and some of the Junior Suites have private plunge pools, too.
6. Dreams Luxury Suites, Imerovigli
Pricing for Dreams Luxury Suites
For a more intimate getaway, there’s the Dreams Luxury Suites, which has only six rooms. Though there isn’t an on-site restaurant, guests can order room service via an iPad app — and a Champagne breakfast delivered straight to the room is included in the rate. Guests can also have a romantic dinner served on their private terrace, which, of course, is outfitted with either a whirpool or a plunge pool (or both!).
7. Lindos Blu, Lindos
Pricing for Lindos Blu Luxury Hotel & Suites
Head to to find this luxury adult-only hotel, which not only has two outdoor pools and a heated indoor pool, but also private pools in some of its accommodations. Unlike some of the smaller hotels in Greece, this 70-room boutique spot has it all, from a gourmet restaurant to a full-service spa to a private beach with waiter service. While some rooms share pools, you can splurge on an accommodation like the Thetis Maisonette, which has a delightful private pool area. Oh, and did we mention breakfast is free for all guests?
