Just for some context…My wife and I were in desperate need of some R+R. So unlike past holidays we basically stayed in one place for an extended period. Additionally, we prefer boutique style hotels in great locations with near perfect warm service (Amankila, Tented Camp, Jao, etc.). Finally, this was our first trip to Greece but we have a number of reference points throughout greater Europe and Northern Africa (Capri Palace, Helvetia & Bristol, Dar Ahlam, Le Saint-Paul, etc.).
Katikies combines some of the best attributes of world class properties and may be located in the most beautiful location I have ever experienced. From the moment Demitri collects you at the airport with a warm smile and educated tour of the island you will realize that this will be a great trip. Alexander (Hotel Manager) has created a vibe that rival’s St. Barth’s and service that exceeds anything you would expect on a European island. Nikos (a hulking but very friendly porter) will deliver your bags to your room after travelling across a high risk maze of steps…it may sound silly but you will appreciate this once you see it first-hand. The entire staff was warm, professional and did any amazing job anticipating your needs (nobody sits around…they are always doing something to better the experience…in an unobtrusive manner). I need to call out a few special people that I recommend that you seek out when you arrive…Julian (head waiter of the “Katikies Dining Experience” and probably the most photographed person on our trip…by my wife), Demitri (room service and pool steward…extremely interesting and friendly) and Katrina (room service attendant and pool steward…flawless room service execution with a warm personality).
The food…we ate breakfast everyday on our patio (~11:00am), lunch on our patio (~3:30pm) and finally left the property for dinner after sunset. Katikies is that kind of place! You will not want to leave. Please check out the “Katikies Dinning Experience” at least once (we had it twice in 5 nights).
