“Breathtaking!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

"Kalestesia Suites" is what the name Kalestesia means : good aesthetic. From every aspect :location,interior,exterior,surrounding area,viewpoints at full 360 degrees,everything.Absolutely fantastic !!!
From Kalestesia Suites the sunrise and sunset are litterally breathtaking !!!!!

Staff and service get "flying colours" by me. I can only describe it as the personification of hospitality.
Generally,good value for money too.

After my 5 days in Kalestesia Suites, for me no holiday and vacation will ever be the same again .
No comparison with any other location by far !

brand new hotel in great location with fantastic views on all sides.

Agapi did a marvelous job in ensuring our stay would be great. All the staff was very helpful despite some confusion for the first breakfast.

The resort is in typical Cyclades style with a modern/boutique touch for the exterior. Very nice. However, this contrasted with the interior that lacked style and decoration but I understood this would be temporary due to the first opening this summer. Example: cheap floor tiles, useless kitchen, no decorations on the walls, poor bathroom (no shelf for shampoos/soap). There was some problems to close the window shutters from the inside. Bed covers were missing in case it was cold. All these are easy fixes so I'm sure next year will be improved.

Breakfast was excellent with fresh products. There should have been more tables on the patio outside.

Playroom was great for the kids although we didn't stay very long at the hotel to enjoy it.

All in all, it was a pleasant stay and I wish Lambis and his team best success for the new hotel.

We had an amazing time staying at Kalestesia Suites. Away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the island it was it's own little sanctuary but still really easy to get out and about if you wanted to. The location has beautiful views over the caldera towards Oia and Fira.
The apartments and facilities are excellent and the attention to detail was outstanding but it was the people operating Kalestesia Suites that made this place exceptional. We enjoyed a lovely evening sharing a meal, drinking wine and singing with them and their lovely families.
The intimate feel and hospitality mean we will definitely try to come back while we are living in this part of the world.

We came to this place not really knowing what to expect as there hadn´t been too many reviews. But from the moment we checked in, we knew we had gotten ourselves into something very special.
The property itself, at the highest point in Akrotiri, is stunning. The views of the the caldera, as well as Fira and Oia are phenomal. And I do realize that the sunset from Oia is a requisite, but it is just as phenomanal from the grounds near Kalestesia´s sparkling swimming pool. The apartments are spotless, and both luxurious, yet unpretentious.
The rest of the property is great. Now I know that one reviewer said the place was under renovation, but, this isn´t really the case. The place is brand new. When we got there, it was only a month old, and the staff was still putting some finishing touches on the facilities, which included a beautiful gym and yoga studio, a steam room, sauna, and jacuzzi. There was also a game room, with foosball, billiards and ping pong. With the pool (a marvel, really), and the soon-to-be-ready poolside bar, it genuinely is difficult to leave the grounds. At least plan on spending a good amount of time there, and not worry so much about hitting every touristy beach on the Island.

Finally, and perhaps most important, was the staff. Every single staff member, from the concierge, to the housekeepers, to the cooks (great Breakfast!), to the owners, were there to make you feel comfortable, in a down-to-earth way. Just a beatiful group of people.

We stayed 2 days in the hotel. Were impressed from the hospitality of the personel. We felt like home. Ammazing view at the very top of the hill. The room has so much "island feeling" that you don't want to go out. All food home made... We were glad we made this choice.
