“The Best Place for Your Honeymoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2011

My wife and I love to travel and we picked Santorini as our Honeymoon destination and we will never regret it. This island is the most stunning land structure we've ever seen. The people are so friendly, the climate is perfect, the food.. well you just can't stop eating it! Wine is good, the villages are terrific and the views are spellbinding from everywhere on the island. If you get the chance take an ATV around the island and see it all. We stayed on the island for 5 days after visiting Athens (another equally wonderful place). There's tons to do in Santorini, so give it atleast a few days because it's a magical place!

“My favourite place in Greece!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2011

I went to Santorini in summer and it was definitely one of the best places I've been to. 4 days and 3 nights is definitely not enough! I stayed in Perissa area and the black beach was amazing! The sea and sunset were beautiful! Architecture and Houses? One of a kind! Be sure to visit Perissa, Kamari, Oia, the volcano, take a swim in any of the amazing seas, take a tan, and drive around! I would definitely love to go back to Santorini again!

“White houses, amazing view: A relaxing piece of land.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2010

Unlike the tourist-tainted landscapes of neighbouring of Cancun and other Caribbean resorts; Santorini, Greece provides a seemingly untouched backdrop of white hills, red beaches and blue seas.
A gem of Santorini, the Traditional Houses, sits high atop the archipelago of islands in the villages of santorini. Houses are divided into studios (one bedroom), maisonettes (loft bedroom), and suites. Each lodging has its own intriguing name — presumably derived from local occupations — such as artisan, boatman, collector and antiquarian.
The luxury dwellings are carved out of pumice and designed to blend in with the surrounding architecture — hence “traditional houses”. The theme of bright white with a highlight of blue windows, roofs and shutters create a mesmerizing effect when pared with the Aegean’s cerulean waters and red clay cliffs.
Beyond the intricately detailed infrastructure, the Santorini White chalets have become for the romantically-inclined, offering a full service honeymoon package, with champagne breakfasts, flowers, satin sheets and the works.

“Beautiful Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2010

We got married in Santorini in September 2010. We used Kivotos Travels to coordinate our wedding day from Seattle. Our wedding coordinator, Maria Renieri was fantastic in making our wedding day a beautiful and memorable one! The setting was absolutely breathtaking, and all the details of the ceremony was perfect! We had 14 guests and they all enjoyed themselves immensely. We had our wedding reception at Sphinx which we highly recommend. The food was excellent and the staff was very nice. Also, don't skimp on the photographer. You MUST go with Antonis Gianellis as your wedding photographer. He costs a bit more since he has to travel to Santorini from another island, Rhodes, but he's SO worth the splurge! We wouldn't have changed one thing from our wedding day in Santorini!

“Wedding in Santorini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2010

It was only after much research - and sixteen years of living together - that Mary Ann and I opted for getting married in Santorini and using Kivotos Travel there as our organisers. We were quite concerned to 'get it right', even though it was the second time for both of us and we were doing it in secret - without any guests. We needn't have worried! From start to finish, over several months, Kirsty from Kivotos managed everything perfectly - both flexible and gently directive as the occasion demanded. Everything was organised in timely fashion, our endless questions answered promptly.

The chapel, Profitas Elias, was beautiful in itself, as well as offering exquisitely romantic location, high on the cliff overlooking the Mediterranean. The timing - just before sunset - also romantic, the right temperature and with beautifully soft light for those photos! Kirsty and Maria were elegant and attentive witnesses, and the Registrar both suitably solemn, yet with just a touch of Basil Fawlty behind the immaculate white suit. The music, champagne, cake, flowers, confetti were all tastefully and thoughtfully put together.

Kirsty also helped with finding our lovely little hotel in Oia - Alta Mare, to which we shall undoubtedly return. Delightful room, a marvellous 'infinity' little pool inside one of the old cliff caves, delicious breakfast on the patio looking out over the caldera - and unfailingly excellent and personalised service from the Manager and all of his staff.

In fact, it was all just perfect - as we had hoped.
