Kapari Natural Resort – Santorini, Greece

Kapari” is the Greek word for caper, the flower bud that grows wild across Santorini and is an integral ingredient in local cuisine. 

Located on the cliff top of the peaceful and exclusive of Imerovigli, Kapari Natural Resort is similarly homegrown: family-owned and operated, this is an authentic and idyllic sanctuary, offering its guests breathtaking, unobstructed views to the Caldera, the Volcano and the Aegean Sea with its infinite shades of blue.

Being the first Greek representative in National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World list, Kapari takes sustainability very seriously: it was built out of centuries-old structures using traditional materials with respect to the Santorinian traditional architecture; the owners support local food producers, embrace Greek and Cycladic cuisine, and engage native Santorinians as guides.

Moreover, Kapari uses smart technology meters in each of its guest rooms to help reduce energy use and minimize electricity consumption.

SANTORINI, GREECE

Santorini is probably the most famous among the Greek islands, a head-turner whose face is instantly recognisable around the world: multicoloured cliffs soar out of a sea-drowned caldera, topped by drifts of whitewashed buildings.

With its reputation for dazzling panoramas, romantic sunsets and volcanic-sand beaches, it’s hardly surprising the island features on so many travellers’ bucket lists.

Part of the Cyclades group, Santorini (officially known as Thira, a name that was given by the Spartan King Thireas) sits in the Aegean Sea, roughly halfway between Athens and Crete.

The island is shaped like a wonky croissant, and the neighbouring islets hint at the fact that Santorini was once circular; it was known as Strongili (the Round One).

Thousands of years ago a colossal volcanic eruption caused the centre of Strongili to sink, leaving a caldera (or crater) with towering cliffs along the east side – now Santorini’s trademark landscape.

The main towns of Fira and Oia – a snow-drift of white Cycladic houses that line the cliff tops and spill like icy cornices down the terraced rock – will take your breath away.

And the island’s fascinating history, best revealed at the Minoan site of Akrotiri.

You’ll find so many excellent wineries and quality restaurants, multicoloured beaches, hot springs, evening cruises and more.
