The sun-soaked landscape of Greece oozes romance with charming coves and enchanting beaches at every turn, and has long drawn honeymooners to relax and revel in the Aegean sea. Below, we’ve handpicked the most heavenly honeymoon hotels in Greece perfect for hiding away in with your other half:
1. Panoptis Escape, Mykonos
From its exclusive, hilltop position in Mykonos, Panoptis Escape is an island sanctuary which offers soft sea breezes, soul-affirming views, and mesmerising sunsets. Take part in a sunrise yoga session for two, gallop along the beach on horseback or set sail on a private yacht for wild swimming in remote coves. Then, return to your Honeymoon Retreat with an outdoor Jacuzzi or pergola-shaded, private pool to cool off in before tumbling into the king-size bed.

2. Bohème Hotel, Mykonos
A wonderfully laid-back ‘boho’ style runs throughout the crisp white, citrus-scented interiors of Bohème, which houses just 20 sexy suites with unbeatable views of the Aegean Sea. The Honeymoon Sea View Suite comes with its own outdoor Jacuzzi, so you can pad around in your super soft slippers and fluffy robes in between dips. Indulge in a couples’ massage overlooking the glittering sea and under the shade of rustic reed awnings, breathing in the healing powers of the landscaped gardens.
3. Canaves Oia Suites, Santorini
The pristine white suites at Canaves Oia Suites are carved into the cliffs with glittering private plunge pools and individual terraces. Minimalist and modern, whitewashed walls frame impossibly blue caldera views overlooking the Aegean Sea. The Honeymoon Suite boasts its own plunge pool, along with an alfresco dining area for candlelit dinners under the stars. For a one-of-a-kind experience, the River Pool Suite brings the outside in, with a plunge Jacuzzi flowing into the bedroom.
4. Canaves Oia Boutique Hotel, Santorini
Located on the northwest tip of Santorini, Canaves Oia Boutique Hotel mixes traditional Cycladic architecture with contemporary furnishings. Spend your days beside the infinity pool, with the sea and sky stretching out before you. Or, for a truly luxurious way to explore Santorini, take a chartered cruise aboard the hotel’s private, fully crewed sailing yacht. Retreat to the private terrace of the freshly renovated Honeymoon Suite for sweeping caldera views.
5. On The Rocks, Santorini
Perched on the cliffs over the deep blue of the Aegean, On The Rocks is all about living luxury on the edge. Located in the pretty village of Imerovigli, the hotel is carved into the rocks high above the caldera basin where every room comes with volcano-facing views and access to the most romantic sunsets. Hideaway in the spacious Honeymoon Suite complete with its own hot tub, then head down to the poolside bar to sip cocktails as the sun sets.
6. Cosmopolitan Suites, Santorini
Nestled in the heart of Fira, Cosmopolitan Suites is a chic and sophisticated base from which to explore the postcard-worthy surroundings. The open-plan Cosmo Honeymoon Suite puts couples right on the cliff’s edge with dramatic caldera views from the veranda. Sign up to one of the hotel’s wine tasting sessions to get a true taste of Santorini, or enjoy an in-room massage for two to really unwind.
7. Mykonos Ammos Hotel, Mykonos
A sugar cube property right on the powder white beach at Ornos, Mykonos Ammos Hotel is all about luxury barefoot living. The hotel is just steps away from the sand, where there’s a relaxed beach bar and rows of stylish sun loungers and nautical-striped umbrellas. The dreamy Honeymoon Suite crowns the upper floor and comes with a large, sea-facing balcony – plus a hot tub to soak in with a glass of chilled bubbly. Treat your loved one to a private toes-in-the-sand dinner on the beach, available on request.
