We spent in Kalestesia suites three wonderfull days! Our suite had a balcony with an amazing view at the caldera... The first day was a bit windy, but still the atmosphere was magical! The staff was very nice and helpfull and made us feel at home! We’ll try to come back next summer and stay more days.Thanks for everything!

I spent 5 days in Santorini, end of July, 3 at Kalestesia Suites and 2 in a cheaper hotel in Perisa. I must admit the 3 days at Kalestesia were... simply perfect! I enjoyed every aspect of this brand new hotel.

The view of the whole island is unique! You can see very clearly most the Santorini villages (Oia, Fira, Pyrgos...), as well as all the nearby cycladic islands!
Seeing the sunrise & sunset from this location is an experience not to be missed.

The rooms were clean and I noticed a difference after sleeping the first night - the bed matress was even better than my own anatomic one at home! I really enjoyed this bed...

The breakfast was quite rich and fresh. You could tell it was homemade, especially the marmelades were superb!

The swimming pool and the surrounding area was very relaxing and ideal for lying lazy in the sun, looking over the Caldera... I wished the poolbar was open, which they said it will be next season.

The personel were very kind and helpful in particular Agapi the manager as well as Athina in the breakfast buffet.

The only negative feature for me is that there is not enough green around... I think the yard and the outside of the studios need much more plants, to become more friendly.

"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.
