We visited Kalestesia Suites while on a trip celebrating our 30th anniversary. We had been hoping to visit the Greek Islands for years. When you build up something in your mind for so long it is hard not to fear that it won't meet your expectations. There really isn't one thing we would change about our stay. Our accommodations were beautiful and clean. The bed was comfortable and the view over the caldera was amazing. It is not located in the main cities, but they were a short drive away, which we found preferable. The management was professional, warm, and accommodating. They gave us lots of great sight seeing, dining and beach going suggestions. We came away relaxed and refreshed. We recommend the Kalestesia Suites enthusiastically and without hesitation.

This place is truly a hidden gem and is even better in real life than anything you’ll ever see or read about online. You won’t want to stay in Oia or Fira or anywhere else on the island if you come here. It’s off the beaten track, literally, at the the top of a hill giving 360 degree views of Santorini away from the maddening crowds.

We stayed for 10 days B&B in a ground floor superior double room overlooking the pool with a sea view (all rooms have a sea view). The accommodation was delightful, decorated beautifully, contemporary yet in keeping with traditional design with all mod cons you’d expect from a 5* hotel. The service was absolutely first class, Thanos and Meni on reception couldn’t do enough for us. They booked trips, restaurants, taxis and provided us with all the information we needed along with a smile and great sense of humour. Jasper, our wonderful bar man and waiter, was the icing on the cake! What a character! We will miss his wonderful, funny stories from afar whilst enjoying his unique cocktails at the pool bar as the sun went down.

All that and then there’s the sunset...oh my, there are no words to describe it! Just sit on the rock overlooking the caldera with a glass of wine and watch the sun dissolve into the sea! The sunset here was even better than on our boat trip and you don’t have the many tourists who gather for it in Oia!

You’ll need a good pair of sandals and be prepared to do some walking if you don’t hire a car as this place is on the top of a hill with a 15 minute downhill walk into Akrotiri where there are some lovely tavernas and local buses to get you to all other parts of the island. We hired a car for 4 days which was enough for us to explore the island. However, the hotel can arrange transportation so a car is not essential.

Finally, the hotel s restaurant was very good, breakfast served on the terrace was superb and there’s room service too.

This was our first time to Santorini and it far exceeded our expectations as did Kalestesia Suites. We didn’t want to leave and we will be back!

First of all the place should be rated 5 stars in my honest opinion. I was running late for my arrival and I was greeted at the door. The staff is gracious, attentive and friendly. During the reception they were giving me a tour of the island on the travel map all the places I should visit, which were wonderful. The view is gorgeous. The villa altogether is Clean, beautiful and classic. The quality of these staff were top-notch, and I felt as if I was royalty here. It's quiet away from the noise of Fira, and will have a great view of the sunrise and sunset. This will be the place I come back too the next time I vist Santorini. Thank you again for an amazing experience.

We spent my birthday week at Kalestesia Suites and had such an amazing time and experience. The hotel sits high up south of the island with the best hotel views i have ever stayed in! We stayed in room number 2 which had a balcony again with great views of the pool and Caldera!! Our room was cleaned to a high standard with fresh towels provided daily. The hotel looks new as it is freshly painted and maintained by such amazing staff who also recommended some excellent places to visit. An amazing breakfast was served every morning on the terrace overlooking the south coast which could not be faulted. The staff here treat you like friends not guests which adds to the whole experience. Many thanks to you all for making Santorini more than we could ever of imagined and many thanks for surprising me with birthday wishes and cocktails!
If anyone is in doubt of staying here please be rest assured this place and attentive staff will not let you down! Many thanks Kalestasia suites see you again for sure!!

Since the first moment me and my partner abbie arrived we have been treated excellently. The staff are awesome, and made our holiday much better than we thought it would be. As soon as we got here we was greeted by the owners (who are very nice people) they took time to give us information about the island and everything there was to do. They made us feel very welcome and everytime we saw them, they was very friendly and always made the effort to make conversation with us. The kitchen staff are exactly the same. The waiter and chef were very nice and offered top notch service and food! I honestly couldn't recommend them highly enough. We was treated like friends, not guests which is something you don't really get anywhere else. And something me and my partner really appreciated. We stayed in room 10 which was amazing! Awesome views and a very well decorated suite. Definitely worth the extra money! We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends and will most definitely be coming back in the future! If you are coming to santorini this is the place you should stay in my opinion. How its only rated 3 star accommodation I'll never know! Thank you for making us feel so welcome :-)
