“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

A beautiful hotel with an amazing team. We checked in and were impressed from the moment we arrived. Excellent service and we were greeted by an absolute star, Lisa, who looked out for us for the whole of our trip. Dinner at the restaurant is a must. Stunning venue in a stunning location.

We will never forget our wonderful stay at Kirini Suites. We have stayed at many Relais and Chateaux properties throughout the world and trust them. The view is unbelieveable and the service at this hotel is above and beyond. We usually do not spend this type of money on hotels but it was well worth it. We loved how private the hotel is, only 30 or so rooms, and with everyone moving around etc. we rarely saw more than 10 other people at a time. Make sure and have Arturo take your picture and serve you an Arturoska while visiting!

I spent hours researching hotels for our Greek islands anniversary trip, and it was all worth it for Kirini. This is one of (if not THE) most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in: perfectly designed for its setting, with glorious views at every turn. It is spectacular, and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Santorini. Worth every penny.

My husband and I enjoyed a luxury babymoon at this wonderful Relais & Chateau property. Everything was simply PERFECT! The property itself is SPECTACULAR and IMMACULATE. The views are oustanding, this place is simply paradise. What makes the resort come to life is the fantastic team that takes care of you. Eva (the manager) is lovely and knows all the guests my name, she touches base with you everyday to make sure all your needs are met and you are having a good time. Loved the welcome drink, hotel introduction, playlist ipod in the room, welcome fruit basket and wine, rose petals on the bed. Arturo the restaurant breakfast man ans waiter and his team Babis, Athena make your dining experience a delight, they take the time to socialize with All the guests in a friendly and professional way. We felt so at home and did. Not want to leave. WE met wonderful people, loved our dining and drink experience there, went to the different beaches, and ate at differemt restaurants, did the wine tour but couldn't wait to get back to the hotel! Everything was beautiful, the decor, the food, the clientele, the service, the views. stop looking at other resorts, this is the best on the island hands down and also the best hotel in the world that we have been to!!!!

Room Tip: Lots of steps all over the resort, you need to be in good shape!

A sense of peace comes over as you make your way down to the room for the first time. It's incredible to think that such violent volcanic activity created such a serene and gentle landscape. We spent many hours watching the colours change. Hazy white, deep grey, azure blue, soft pink and brilliant orange. The pace of the world slows right down as you watch the cruise ships plod through, the tourist vessels loop around and the ever changing surface of the sea. That simple, peacful pleasure is just want you want from a holiday.

Be prepared to climb though! Thankfully you won't need to be as nimble as a Santorini donkey. The steps are plentiful and wide, and there is even a lift. Hats off to the staff's ability to carry all your luggage in one sitting. Exploring the different ways of getting to your room and generally clambering around is great fun. Oia town is a 5 minute walk away. There are plenty of shops and restaurants so you can eat somewhere different each night for a week. There is a quite a churn up and down the main street, especially before sunset. It is active, but not obtrusive and noisy. We never went to Thira, didn't really need to.

Our room (31) was perfect in every way. The bed was huge and comfortable and no light or noise at night meant we slept really well. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom particularly good. Huge shower and jet powered bath were the highlights. Our balcony was perfect for two, and we had an umbrella which helped to enjoy the view and sun. We didn't feel overlooked, and the room really felt like our own corner of the island. And who doesn't like a turn-down service!?

There were plenty of options at breakfast all of which were delicious. Fruit, cake, bread, meats, cheese and juice were all available from the buffet. There was a hot menu to choose from too (really good scrambled eggs!). All enjoyed by the pool whilst still taking in that view. All the staff were friendly and attentive, they have got the balance just right. I would like to particularly thank the manager, for our transfer to the sister hotel for our last two nights.

We had dinner at the hotel one night, which for the menu, service and presentation scores 5 out of 5. In terms of taste and price, I would have to say 3 out of 5. That may be unfair as it's probably difficult to source the very best of ingredients considering where the island is. I have had better restaurant meals at a cheaper price. We still enjoyed it, and thanks to the staff, we discovered the delights of Mastic and Vinsanto. A bottle came back home with us!

The pool, dining and relaxation areas are all in one fairly small place. It took a bit of getting used to as it is quite compact. That has to be expected when you are on the side of a caldera. Just maybe one more pool and a few beds in a different area would have been ideal.

We stayed for 8 nights which felt quite long compared to other guests. It seems a lot of people are on a mission from Athens through Mykanos and Santorini. We had a rental car which meant we could explore the island. That kept us busy and not really wanting to pack the suitcase and fly off somewhere else. You can park at the hotel, but the sign from the road is very hard to see. I had to ask for directions in a local restaurant. Kamari, The Donkey Brewery, Akrotiri, The lighthouse and the red and black beaches are all must visits.

Overall, we had a great time and spoke very highly of the hotel and the island when we got home. Thanks for having us.

My husband and I went to spend the last three days of our honeymoon after a week of running around and sightseeing in Italy and we couln't be more happy about this choice. Kirini Suites & Spa is the best place to relax. Not only its accomodations are top class, their personal service and attentions, and their view! We had an upgrade from a Junior to a Senior suite and the space was impecable. Breakfast was amazing, different choices for anyone and delicious as well. We had some massages in their SPA and they were excellent. You can tell staff is there to service you in any way they can. There were only two things that werent mayor as having water cutting off during showers for a few minutes and one of the restaurant staff guys who really only treated well people that were consuming alcohol in the pool.... I am pregnant so no drinking and we didnt get his special attention. Other than that, the place is outstanding! I would recommended for any getaway.

Room Tip: The highest up the best view and more privacy.

We spent four nights at Kirini and loved it. We were in Room #20 and had a terrace that was higher up, so it was slightly more private than the suites below us which you pass by (and can see) on your way to the restaurant and pool.

The staff is excellent (albeit for one new girl who clearly needs some more training). The hotel manager and concierge are especially nice and we felt like the staff was the right balance of warm, welcoming and professional. Really, just great overall!

As for the views, I never even went to the touristy spot in Oia to watch the sun set, as you already have amazing views of the sun setting over the white-washed houses from the pool/restaurant area.

The room was perfectly decorated and had a nice Bose sound system with pre-loaded playlist, excellent shower amenities (Bulgari and another brand I forget), safe and large minibar. We were also welcomed with a bottle of wine, welcome drink (non-alcohol) and fruits as part of our package.

The breakfast was really good (buffet and a la carte options, as well as champagne), and the Kirini Cave Dinner for 95 euros one night was good (there was a DJ that played romantic music during dinner and then more fun music afterwards as the night wound down). We also had a good lunch at the restaurant (those fries are really good!), and decent room service.

I would say the only area for improvement is better WiFi in the rooms.

We loved staying at Kirini and were sad to leave, but will definitely stay again if/once we return to Santorini!
