Mystique (Santorini, Greece)
Though it's hard to find a poor view in Santorini, Mystique has the most Instagram-worthy vista around thanks to its lofty perch on the rim of the caldera, on the southernmost tip of Oia.
From the hotel's infinity pool, guests can soak in an unrivaled panorama of Santorini's dramatic volcanic cliffs and the glittering southern Aegean Sea.
The airy, free-form rooms are carved directly into the cliff and feature private, ocean-facing terraces.
The highlight of the property is its pool bar, Aura, which serves up cocktails to match the showstopping sunsets.

Blue Palace (Crete, Greece)
The striking simplicity of this low-rise, whitewashed resort proves that beauty doesn't necessarily equal opulence.
Its 256 rooms are bright, minimalist and bohemian, allowing luxe touches like the ocean-facing terraces and private plunge pools to shine.
Clay roof tiles, wooden shutters and pebble mosaics add to the property's low-key charm, while palms and olive-tree-filled gardens help it blend into the wild landscape.
From the main pool, guests can enjoy breathtaking views over the Cretan Sea and the island of Spinalonga.
