“The Best Villas on this planet!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Staying here is like being a King and Queen with the most gorgeous views and the ultimate in hospitality. Nikos is the manager, and he will take personal care for your stay. He is available at all hours with a private number to his cell. He will be your concierge for anything you need or want. He truly cares about your time there, and strives to exceed your expectations! The suites are beautiful inside and out. The breakfast brought out to your personal terrace is exceptional. However, the most amazing thing is how they have carved each suite into the side of the cliff to provide probably the most breathtaking sites you will ever have. One hears of the beauty of Santorini, and it is hard to think there is a way to exceed your expectations, but if you come to the Celestia Grand, they will no doubt exceed them for you! It has to be the best villas on the planet. Thank you Nikos for the time of our lives!

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights for our anniversary and I think we could not have chosen a better place. Our villa was just perfect, very spacious and clean, well equipped. The views are amazing (in my opionion better than from Oia or Fira) as you are more secluded here. As many before me agreed, what stands out beyond anything is the service of all staff, and namely Mr. Nico, who managed to make this vacation extraordinary! He helped me make our anniversary extra special and even prepared some very charming surprises for us, securing dinner reservations in the most romantic restaurants. Never go out for dinner without his advice! :) Its totally worth it. Even the a little bit secluded location is not at all a problem as there is a shuttle bus to town, or the staff will personally drive you there when ever you want to go. Very kind! Will definitely come back!

This is the best place to stay while your stay in Santorini. The location is just minutes away from Fira and the view from the villa is FANTASTIC. We had booked the honeymood suite and had a private pool in our villa and it really was a treat. Niko, the hotel manager was really friendly an explained us the history of the island and things to do. Thanks to him, our stay was very comfortable. We even had a person designated to our room and had an in-villa private breakfast and service as and when required.
Though the night we stayed there was a storm in Santorini, something that we were told has never happened before in santorini especially not in end of May (29th May)! But Niko and his team were very helpful and made sure we were comfortable and got everything we need.
Just 5* service !
By the way, forgot to mention Niko gave us his number and said we could call him anytime incase we needed anything, and infact he was kind enough to offer to pick us up (as we were staying in another hotel earlier) to check into Celestia Grand.
Not only this property is fantastic to stay, the staff and the experience make it worth coming back again and again. I think this is what makes a big difference.
In all honesty, I would definitely recommend this property and home back again and again !

Some friends and I stayed in two separate villas and we couldn't be happier. Nico the hotel manager was beyond amazing. anything we needed he was there and had the best recommendations to what to do in Santorini.
The villas were nice, clean and had a lot space. we enjoyed our private breakfast by our pool every morning and though the weather was not always great, the views were still amazing.
I 100% recommend you stay here. you will have a great experience with exceptional service.
thank you Nico for everything.

only thing would be to skip the massage!!!

We spent 4 nights in Villa Ianthi at the end of May. The villa and the views were truly spectacular! What made the place extra special was the staff--especially Niko, the manager. While each staff member was pleasant, friendly and helpful, Niko went above and beyond. When he gave us his cell number, he said "No request is too small--call anytime." He drove us to the local market and even arranged for special food to accommodate my husband's food allergies. He requested an email from us when we left to let him know we made it safely back to the US, and then sent a lovely return email thanking us for visiting! As for the villas--we loved the private pool and terrace! It was a real treat to have breakfast served outside overlooking one of the most beautiful views in the world. We loved the location as well. It was nice to be a little removed from the crowds in Fira and Oia, though the shuttle made it very easy to have dinner in Fira. Altogether a fabulous place--would love to return some day!

Excellent villas, amazing view and really WONDERFUL service! Well, of course, you can find lot of 5 star hotels in Oia or Fira with amazing views, but what you can NOT find anywhere else is Niko (Our host at Celestia Grand Villas). We were on our honeymoon. Niko upgraded us to Villa Lathi which was much bigger and nicer villa than what we originally booked. He personally made sure that we had the most amazing time in Santorini. All we had to do was dial Niko's number! And yes, you cant go wrong with Niko's famous list!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for Villa Lathi.

My trip to Santorini in April of this year was amazing because of my stay at Celestia Grand Villas. The views, the Villa and the service were outstanding. Mr. Niko Dinos greeted me at the airport after a long grueling trip of delayed flights. My bad mood quickly changed as Mr. Niko told me about all of the great things to do and how to get around. He could not have been more accommodating. His friendly manner and great sense of humor put me at ease and my excitement grew in anticipation of all that Santorini and the Villas had to offer. The Staff were great. Sipi my server greeted me every day with a wonderful breakfast beautifully presented, made to order by Chef Marios. I truly experienced Greek hospitality at it's best. The Villa was open and airy with a large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, cool shower, and double sinks. It had a lower deck and upper deck with a pool, so clean and pristine. Mr. Niko and the staff are so dedicated to serving the guests. It is truly a wonderful place, the best in Santorini. I can't wait to return!
