“Perfect wedding services and honeymoon stay! Will stay again every chance we get!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Astra Suites, George Karayiannis and his staff. Our entire stay was wonderful from start to end, and we did NOT want it to end! It was the highest level of customer service, personally and behind the scenes. We cannot wait to return someday.

When my husband (fiancé at the time) and I decided we wanted to have our wedding in Greece, searches for wedding locations led us to discover Astra Suites. We planned the rest of our trip itinerary around our wedding date in Santorini. We worked directly with George via email to select our ceremony package. We stayed in a honeymoon suite that had a beautifully designed interior, great artwork, the bedroom area was elevated, large bathroom and spa-like shower, mini kitchenette a private patio and jacuzzi.

We arrived a little before check-in time but were very welcomed. We were encouraged to relax by the pool and order a drink while waiting on our room- which we did. Or we could have stayed in the hospitality room that has couches and TV and luggage storage. Had we not already drug our luggage down the multiple ramps, steps and paths- they would have sent someone to retrieve it from the taxi stop (lesson learned about good hospitality!). When we checked out of Astra to stay in Oia for a night, we were able to leave our luggage behind picking it up on the way back through on our way to the airport (which we were able to arrange through Astra even though we had checked out a day earlier).

Helen at the front desk was fantastic. She greeted us by name each time we walked in and was very helpful with recommendations of attractions. She made our Thalassa boat reservation, handled the payment and just added it to our bill at the end. It was one less thing we had to worry about, arrange and withdraw cash for- things like this are what made our stay so relaxing and enjoyable.

Astra has a pool and pool bar. The bartender, Costas, was fun to talk to, and makes the most phenomenal drinks (the mango one was our favorite!).

Our wedding ceremony was beautiful. We had to send paperwork ahead of time to George, which he filed and let us know that everything was approved. The only decision I had to make once we got there was what color flowers I wanted in my bouquet… talk about a stress free wedding! The day we arrived, George met with us and reviewed our ceremony package, timeline and showed us the recommended location- a church rooftop! The photographer and videographer were professional and entertaining. We got our photos and video back before we even left the island so that we had them to show our families when we got home. We had to file paperwork the day after, in which Astra provided a driver to take us to the office.

We selected to have dinner in our room after the ceremony. When we arrived back to our suite, there was champagne and chocolates waiting for us. Our waiter (I wish I could remember his name) was so knowledgeable about every item on the menu and passionate about his recommendations. We had an appetizer, two different types of steak and dessert. Everything was phenomenal of course! They do have a small restaurant area with outdoor seating which could be chilly later in the evenings but would serve the same delicious food we had in our suite.

We will absolutely always return to Astra any chance we get to come to Santorini again. It was a phenomenal place to stay!

Room Tip: They are all perfect! Choose the one that fits your budget!

Astra Suites is arguably one of the friendliest lodgings in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Helen and Vicki and all of the staff made us feel like family and were always at their best with answers to every quesiton and suggestions/recommendations for everything from restaurants, to tours, local wines, hikes, taxis, buses, etc. Ultimately relaxing, with excellent views and sunsets, pool and bar, clean, quiet and comfortable accommodations, wonderful outdoor breakfasts on your patio, not much more one could ask for. A+!

Just looking at Trip Advisor, their website and Facebook page, you know the Astra Suites is special. However, Astra Suites went beyond our expectations with their staff and service. Yes, the pool suite room is incredible. Yes, you can take a million photos from the public infinity pool, but the real differentiator here was George and his staff. They are consummate professionals that are very attentive, smart, helpful and anticipated our needs ("Yes please, I would like a drink!"). From the men who carried our luggage, the phenomenal poolside bartender, Maria, Anne Marie, Starvos, and each member of the staff should be applauded for their hard work and attention to their guests. We met George upon our arrival and his insider tips on restaurants, beaches, and what to do in Santorini were spot on. We were at the Astra Suites on our honeymoon and we could not have had a more special experience.

Room Tip: Every room is a good room given the location and view. But trust me, spend a few more Euros get an...

My husband and I spent 3 nights of our honeymoon at the Astra Suites in Santorini. Our suite was one of the coolest spaces I've ever been in. It was built into the cliff, cave style. It was SO comfortable and clean. The staff was super helpful and attentive. They gave us great insight into the surrounding area of Imerovigli, Oia and Fira. We also loved the location as being within a 30 minute walking distance of Fira was key. It's a pleasant walk down to Fira, more of a hike on the way back, but we still enjoyed it. Walking along that footpath at night is magical. And the sunset view from our room was magnificent. We preferred sipping wine in private on our balcony watching the sun drop, over joining the large crowds trying to catch it from Oia. Oh! And the view from their pool is also out of this world. It was an amazing backdrop for photos. We had such an amazing experience there and hope to return in the future!

Room Tip: I'm not sure if all the suites are the same but we stayed in room 501 and it was AMAZING.

This place has it all. Perfect location. Easy walk to Thira, but far enough away from crowds. Bus to Oia.
Absolute luxury boutique accommodation. Spacious, well maintained, clean. Includes first class breakfast served on your balcony. No gym, but it is Santorini.
Beautiful pool, well staffed by Kostas. No problems with BYO drinks, as the mini marts are the cheapest way to drink in Santorini.
We were upgraded to a family suite, which was huge. This resulted in my minor complaint, as discussed with the owner on checkout. We had tried to book a suite for 4 adults and 1 small child, but we're told that this was not possible due to the room size. This is not correct. The family suite is enormous. We had booked a second hotel (Annio Flats) for my inlaws, but this was money wasted, as we could all have stayed in Astra family suite.
Astra Suites is expensive (450 Euro/night), but you get what you pay for, as it is a magnificent boutique hotel.
I thoroughly recommend Astra Suites.

Room Tip: If you are a group of 4 related adults, INSIST on the family suite. Don't accept that the room i...

Located in Imerovigli village of Santorini provence which is part of Cyclades Island, this hotel is an iconic hotel for its mesmerising view of Calder and Agean Sea. We ended up gaping at the view when the door of our room was opened to its balcony by hotel staff.

First things first

High points
1. Highest Level of hospitality - will rate it among top 5 globally for my experience
2. Wonderful view of caldera and age an sea
3. Nice colourful rooms with lavish decor and all amenities
4. Hospitable staff who help you with your luggage and serve food in your room

Low Point
Walk up the stairs is a big pain

Hotel is among the best in Santorini for sure. You pay big bucks but you get its worth in terms of view and service

If you wish to stay close to market search for hotels in fira and then this is not the place to stay

Room Tip: Take a room with a sea view and if possible with a personal swimming pool; it makes your stay comple...
