“Simply Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

From the time we arrived to the time we left our experience at the Kalya Suites was perfect.
We have been fortunate to travel to some beautiful places round the world - staying in luxury accommodation - yet both myself and my husband felt Kalya Suites had qualities that made this one of the best place we have ever stayed. Run very efficiently by Maria, Joie and Emma the accommodation the pool and gardens were spotless. The facilities were excellent, comfortable beds, effective air conditioning and a brilliant walk in shower. Bedding and towels were changed regularly and were of good quality. Kalya Suites are in an ideal location with easy access from the airport, to the beach and the many restaurants Kamari had to offer. A ten minute walk takes you to the bus stop in order to visit Fira, Oia,and other places on the island. What puts Kalya Suites in the 'perfect' category is the service provided by Maria. You don't feel like a guest - more like you are staying with family. The little touches, such as a welcoming drink and snack, fruit by the pool etc is enjoyable but not intrusive. We would thoroughly recommend and will definitely visit this special place again in the future.

Thanks to Maria for making my stay at Kalya Suites perfect. A nice little hotel, only a few steps to the beach, the promenade with all the restaurants. The room was cleaned every day by sweet Emma. Towels for the beach and pool. Dont miss to order for breakfast. Superb! Served with a smile from lovely Joie. Surroundings very cosy and calm..a good place to relax. Try it and you will not be disapointed. Thank you Maria <3 Kisses from Pia/ Denmark

There is no easy way to explain this lovely hotel, everything has been great. The hospitality and kindness of the owner Maria, from the moment you stepped in, she makes you feel just like home. A very cosy and sophisticated place. Breakfast is served anytime as requested and being brought inside our room. Cleanliness and tidiness. There is this pool in which by the time you sit just next to it makes you feel relaxed (spent most of my time there), This hotel is in a perfect location you can find souvenir shops, taverns, mini markets, coffee shops and etc. in a few steps. A vacation in this hotel is really worth it.

So many high class hotels with high star rating are becoming cold and impersonal, this was really refreshing! We stayed here with kids in a room for four to spend four nights. Maria the manager/owner is very sweet and welcoming. The place is quiet, even with our kids, and very close to the beach - you are basically on a side street 20m away from the seafront. For our big room we had to stay on the ground floor so no sea view, but the first floor apartments have sea view.Everything was excellent and really good value for money. The place has a small pool and really nice deck to lounge in the sun. While we were there I saw lots of customers being very happy with their stay and thanking Maria for her attention and easy going approach to running the place. Definitely a contrast to impersonal, cold large hotels. This is like staying at an old friend's. We would definitively recommend it and will stay here again if we come to Santorini. Five stars reinvented.

Room Tip: Room number 1 is large and quite good. Go for top floor apartments if you want sea views.

This hotel is a pearl in Kamari ! It is just a wonderful place to stay.
The rooms are quite big , clean and nicely furnished . And the beds are super.
I was here a week and it was the best week ever.
Location is perfect , because it is in the first street away from the boardwalk in Kamari - so you don't get disturbed from all the restaurants and bars.
The owner Maria is a very nice person and she takes so good care of her guests and you can ask her anything and she wil help you . Just Lovely !
Just a few steps away to the right - you have a very good supermarket with very nice people and just around the corner when you get to the beach there is a very good restaurant .

You won't be disapointed

We had an absolute fantastic week in Santorini! The location of Kalya Suits are perfect. Just 70 meters from the beach, restaurants, cafes, bars etc. But still very quiet.

A minimarket just across the street and a another one just down the road has anything you need. Open almost 24h.

The suites are very clean an houskeeping is done every day. Maria, the owner will do everything to make you feel comfortable. We stayed with two kids 6 and 9 years old. They really enjoyd the pool which is very clean and tidy. Free WIFI is a bonus! And it worked well for us!

Kamari city is perfectly placed for short vacations. It took only 29 minutes from the plane touched down and to we were installed in our rooms! 7 minutes later the kids jumped in the pool. Beat that!!

Kalya Suites and Apartments is a small modern complex run by Maria Tarelli, who fortunately for us speaks very good English as we have only a very limited vocabulary of the Greek language. We have now stayed there on two occasions, after seeing the apartments being built, to a very high standard, whilst staying elsewhere on the island previously. The well thought out layout of the accommodation, pool area design and planting features around the complex, create a pleasant relaxing atmosphere. This, together with Maria's warm personality and helpfulness will ensure that you have a most relaxing holiday on the beautiful island of Santorini. You will certainly not be disappointed.
