A journey back to time: Ira Hotel & Spa!

Ira Hotel & Spa is located in Firostefani, one of the most beautiful spots on the caldera of Santorini for more than 3 decades. A series of cave houses- the so-called yposkafo in Santorini- carved in the rocks of the world’s most famous geological phenomenon. Every year Ira Hotel & Spa is going through small and big renovating touches keeping the combination of traditional living in the cave styled rooms and offering some great caldera and sea view rooms and suites. Today we feel kind of nostalgic and we selected some photos from the story of Ira Hotel & Spa to showcase the changes, the upgrading of the facilities and the accommodations of our hotel. Hope you enjoy!

Our first stop is the lounge overlooking the caldera from the center of Ira Hotel & Spa. Keeping the traditional arches the once open air area haves been transformed into a beautiful lounge with glasses that protects the area from the winds. Here you can unwind, enjoy your breakfast at the balcony or just spend some hours before your departure in comfort.

Then there is the swimming pool area. This is probably the most beautiful spot in Ira Hotel & Spa as here you can relax under the sun, dive in the charming little pool and enjoy snacks and drinks. The sunbeds have been replaced with larger and more comfortable ones, where a pool bar has been constructed. Here you will discover what Santorini is all about, as you will be in the heart of the island’s caldera!
