Relaxing vacation in the clouds

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 31, 2016
Me and my friend came by this hotel by chance. We stayed at a perissa inn for a day as a part of our vacation package. We were disappointed with our other hotel,thus we booked a suite through the internet for Kalestesia suites for 3 days. We took a cab from fira, at first we were thinking that the hotel was a little harder to drive due to its location on top of hill but then lo and behold the view that we saw in kalestesia. We stayed at the top of the first suite. The suites are just the right size, improvement for the shower stall is needed as water would flood the bathroom floor everytime you shower. All in all it wasn't a big deal. The service was impeccable, samson and the rest of the staff would take good care of you from day 1 to the day you leave,just for that i gave them 5 stars!! they will go out of their way to see to it that your stay will be stress free and relaxing. If you want time to relax, away from the loudness and craziness of fira or oia this is your sanctuary.

We stayed 1 week at Kalestesia Suites , Samsun and all the staff were so kind so helpull , They make everything for having an inforgettable vacation .
Santorini is small so we like to have hôtel on the top of the mountain .
The bed is good for sleeping , the maid clean and change the towell everyday . The breakfast was very very good and it changed all the Time .
The hotel can bring rental car for you . We had champagne for welcoming , we Just spend a very peacefull and good week there . Hope to back again !

We have spent 4 nights in Kalestesia. Everything was perfect. Breakfast on the terrace of the restaurant with view on the sea. All our requests were treated very fast. The staff is very kind and smiling. The whole place is very quiet, and we've slept better than in our own beds in France.
Possibility to have lunch on our own terrace.
It was our 2nd stay in this hotel. I hope we'll be able to come back another year.

We r lucky to get an upgrade to the upper floor corner suite and the view is really amazing. I guess it is probably the highest point in akrotiri already. However, the road to come up is a bit narrow and tricky, but it is still possible with a standard 4 seater car, just drive slowly. Highly recommend this place.

I had a girls relaxing vacation summer 2015. It was our first time in Santorini and by far this place was amazing!! We ran into a little problem when we first got to the hotel. Our flight got in late and we took a taxi over. We didn’t know the roads were too narrow for the taxi to go through, so they left us way down the hill and told us to walk in. Well, it was dark and we were not sure how far up the hill the hotel was. There were 3 of us girls, so I took 1 for the team and headed up the hill by myself praying that I find the right place. Finally when I got to the hotel, Samson the host help me out. He hopped into his vehicle and made his way down the hill to pick up the girls.. He told me I should have called him from down the hill and that they would have sent someone down to get us. Which I didn’t know. Besides that the hotel was Magnificent!!! Staff Samson & Leftie were very nice and helpful with everything. The view, the food, the staff perfect. The island is breathtaking. You need a vehicle to get around the Island since everything is far from the hotel. Santorini has lots of steps and it requires a lot of exercise. Bring good comfortable shoes because you will need it. Best trip ever. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone who will be visiting Santorini. Make sure that you contact the hotel when you get drop off by the taxi driver.

Room tip: Call the hotel for pickup when taxi drops you off.

There were three elements that made this hotel so appealing that I decided to book it: simple, traditional architectural design, seclusion and magnificent views of caldera. And when were arrived at the hotel it exceeded our expectations. We stayed at the last villa in a duplex and two terraces that were offering unobscured views of the surroundings - especially spectacular during early morning breakfast when the sun doesn't overshadow Thira and Oia seen in the distance. Notabene, breakfast can be served at the outdoor restaurant or it can be delivered to your room. The entire place is extremely clean, service is excellent, everyone working on the premises is super nice and extremely accommodating.There a few restaurants nearby in Akrotiri, 2 or 3 little grocery stores and a few beaches with kayaking options. The only downside is a complete lack of clear signs leading to the hotel, which made me waste almost 2 hours before I was forced to call the hotel risking an enormous bill for rooming to have someone meet me in Akrotiri and finally guide me to the hotel. So placing clear signs in order to spare aggravation to their clients would be a wise idea. Other than that - Heaven on Earth!
I strongly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys views, doesn't have an issue with driving for 20 min far away from the noisy town of Thira and wake up in the morning to spectacular views of the caldera getting ready for a new day full of adventures :)

Room tip: Honeymooners :) - spend more money on a larger room on the second level - intimacy is worth your investment
