Hotels near Thira Airport in SantoriniDo you Want to Stay near JTR Airport? Check your Top 5 Options!
Santorini Airport Hotels
Although Santorini is a small island and, hence, most of its regions are within a 10-20-minute driving distance from JTR Airport, you may want to check in to a hotel near Thira Airport anyway. If that is the case, check out the top 5 accommodation options near JTR Airport:
1. The Top Proximity Option: Marvarit Suites, Mesaria
If you are looking for a really close and also elegant accommodation option, you should stop searching! Marvarit Suites is the top choice for you! The 18-room hotel is located less than 1km/0.6 miles away from Santorini Airport and offers free shuttle transfers around the clock. Built in 2019, it is a relatively new addition to Santorini’s hospitality sector, designed according to the local architecture but opting for lavish, private, and modern services and amenities. Indicatively, it has an indoor swimming pool, hot tubs, a cozy lounge area, and a relaxing terrace, as well as offers free parking services.
Our Tip: The hotel is really close to the Airport, yet it is certainly not a budget option.
2. The Expensive Option: North Santorini – A Luxury Spa Hotel, Pyrgos
North Santorini is located a bit further from the airport, within a 6-km/3.7-mile distance from JTR, and is certainly costlier than Marvarit Suites. Still, the hotel justifies its high prices. From the elegantly furnished rooms to the fitness area and the outdoor pool, and from the amazing spa providing beauty treatments, massages, and high-quality services overall to the hotel’s food options (including a fine restaurant, a sushi bar, a pool bar, and a breakfast area), North Santorini is a luxury spa hotel worth staying (and paying) near Santorini Airport.
Our Tip: Shuttle airport rides are provided as well, yet upon payment.
3. The “Family-Run” Option: DL Santorini, Monolithos
DL Santorini combines proximity to the airport, impeccable services, and an absolute sense of hospitality. The family-owned hotel aims at the personal approach without underestimating the value and the quality of the offered services. Being only a 4-minute drive from Thira Airport, it is kitted with an outdoor pool, a restaurant, and a bar while offering free parking services.
Our Tip: The 3-star hotel is somewhat affordable, costing approximately 160€/160$ per night.
4. The Mid-Range Option: Anamar Santorini, Monolithos
Ranging from 100€-140€/100$-140$, the mid-range Anamar Santorini is a 4-star accommodation guaranteeing a memorable stay for its guests. The hotel is situated only 2km/1.2 miles from Santorini Airport. Thus, you won’t need but 4 minutes to reach it by car or taxi. What’s more, you’ll have access to a pool, a beautiful garden, and a comfy terrace offering amazing views, as well as a restaurant and a snack bar.
Our Tip: Transfers upon request are also an option.
5. The Budget Option: Villa Manos Hotel, Karterados
Villa Manos, located a 6-km/3.7-mile drive from the airport, is a family-owned cozy hotel with affordable prices and satisfying amenities. It has a bar-restaurant, a pool, and a terrace overlooking the sea. It also offers paid transfer services.
Our Tip: The hotel is family-friendly, providing extra services such as baby cots, babysitting services, etc.
Top Hotel Options in Santorini
As the distances in Santorini are small, you can opt for a top accommodation located almost in any part of the island and still remain relatively close to Thira Airport. Thus, depending on your preferences and your budget, expand your areas of search and take a look at some of the best hotels in Santorini:
1. The Sky-High Price Option: Andronis Arcadia, Oia
Andronis Arcadia is part of the well-known Andronis hotel chain. It is, in fact, its latest member. Thus, the newly built 5-star hotel meets its “sibling” hotels’ high-class services and amenities, being equipped with an enormous infinity pool, two restaurants, and a small yet interesting spa area. Every single room has its own private pool, while Andronis Arcadia may not offer a Caldera panorama, but still compensate its guests with amazing sea views.
Our Tip: Andronis Arcadia is one of the really few Santorini options combining luxury with family-friendly activities. Indeed, the hotel provides its little guests with a kids spa, cooking or yoga classes, tennis course, and has all the family amenities anticipated from a 5-star accommodation.
2. The Expensive Alternative: Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites & Spa, Oia
If money isn’t an issue, you should definitely settle on Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites & Spa. The hotel may not offer a Caldera view, but its sea scenery is equally breathtaking, especially during sunsets. The bohemian-style hotel sums up the luxury experience, having 5 public infinity pools, a prize-winning spa area, a fitness center, and an indoor pool, along with an exquisite restaurant, private pools, and hot tubs.
Our Tip: Please keep in mind that Santo Maris is an adults-only hotel.
3. The Boutique Accommodation: Vedema, a Luxury Collection Resort, Megalohori
Built in a quiet Santorini village, Vedema is a boutique hotel stringing luxury and high-quality services with a more personal approach. The hotel -part of the Marriott luxury family- was renovated in 2020 and is placed in an old winery, preserving a unique character and style thanks to its “special routes”. It has two restaurants, two bars, two pools, and a spa area, while some of the available rooms are kitted with private pools or jacuzzis.
4. The Mid-Range Option: Summer Time Villa, Fira
Centrally located in Fira, Summer Time Villa is proof that you can enjoy elegant premises and top-rated services without paying ruinous high rates. The hotel has a contemporary character, with colorful touches here and there, adding a playful style to its design. Undoubtedly, the top feature of Summer Time Villa is the rooftop terrace with the outdoor jacuzzi facing the Aegean sea. All in all, Summer Time Villa is the perfect combination of pleasant stays and reasonable prices.
5. The Budget Option: Chez Sophie (Kamari) / Youth Hostel Anna (Perissa)
If budget prices are a priority for you, you can choose Chez Sophie rooms & suites. On the other hand, if you are in search of something more “alternative”, Youth Hostel Anna should be your choice.
Chez Sophie is ideal if you want to experience the greek “philoxenia” (hospitality) in a well-tended, clean and cozy hotel without paying a fortune. Here, you can relax in one of the mountain-facing or sea-view rooms or enjoy your drink next to the swimming pool. What’s more, the hotel offers airport transfers for an extra fee.
Our Tip: Don’t forget to ask for details about the famous grandmother Sophia -who inspired the hotel project- getting an insight into the life of one of the most welcoming habitats of the island.
On the other hand, Youth Hostel Anna is your place if you want to pay a little but enjoy it a lot. The hostel is clean and tidy and offers two options: you can either go for the dormitories or choose a private room with its own bathroom and a shared pool. Besides that, you’ll also find a welcoming terrace and a shared kitchen, while you’ll be provided with free Wi-Fi through all the premises, complimentary parking, and paid transfers to or from the airport.
