“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

This boutique hotel was breathtaking. Great views great architecture and design. The rooms were very spacious and had luxurious bathrooms. Plenty of towels, toiletries, and a wonderful breakfast prepared by the management/owners. The couple who owns and runs this hotel is very friendly and helpful and makes sure you have everything you need. They plan excursions and can tell you the best restaurants to dine.

Room Tip: All rooms have views of the ocean and are excellent.

Ikastikies Suites is outstanding luxury accommodation on the island of Santorini in Greece. Not only are the views and decor outstanding, the service is of 7-star standard. The very friendly and accommodating staff go above and beyond to ensure your stay is comfortable and pleasurable. Whether it is breakfast brought to you while sitting at the pool or on your balcony, catamaran sailing around the island or dinner reservations (George is happy to arrange deliveries to your suite), Ikiastikies staff arrange everything upon request ensuring all services are of the highest standard whilst insisting: "You are here to relax. Enjoy the view of the caldera and leave the rest to us". I highly recommend Ikastikies for anyone traveling to Santorini who enjoys high standard accommodation and, if you are a honeymooner or someone who is looking for complete privacy, be sure to enquire about George's newest project - a luxury home on the island complete with jacuzzi, spectacular views and the exceptional personal service George and his staff provide. Would I stay there again? In Firostefani, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

We just come back from Greece where we spent 2 days in Athens (for business) and 4 wonderful days in Santorini at Ikastikies. I have read yesterday the 56 comments written on this hotel and I can for sure confirm that they are all true !!!! Except one who was disappointed (well, yes, there is always one to complain ;).
Ikastikies was recommended by one customer based in Athens so we decided to go even if formerly we wanted to stay in Oia. No regret at all, on the contrary! Georgios and his sister are absolutely unbelievable! So there's nothing else to say except that if you read all the comments you will understand how exceptional your stay at Ikastikies can be. It's the perfect romantic place so book without any doubt or hesitation. We will come back for sure!

Room Tip: Thanks to many circumstances (and prayers to Greek Gods ;o) we were upgraded in the "Spilia&quo...

This was my first trip to Santorini and I could not have picked a better place to stay on the island. It was truly amazing and the PERFECT location in Firostefani. Firostefani is walking to distance to Fira as well as Imerovigli. Oia is a beautiful hike, boat ride or quick bus/moped/ATV/car ride away. I did the 2 hour hike and enjoyed every minute of it.

What makes Ikastikies great is many different things! The views are breathtaking, including the sunset. The suites are beautifully done and I loved that there are only 4 suites which makes it such a comfortable and personal place to stay. We stayed in the Roza suite which was fantastic with so much space, very comfortable beds, and a HUGE bathroom with two rain showers!! It was simply wonderful. A delicious spread is served for breakfast every morning. We ate out on the patio taking in the incredible view. An assortment of delicious pastries, unmatchable greek yogurt, cheeses,veggies, and perfectly made omlet with fresh orange juice and great coffee! Now, I cannot leave out the most important part..... the hospitality, helpfulness and friendliness of the staff including George, the owner of Ikastikies. I miss George's big smile and warm greeting every day. I will without a doubt go back to Ikastikies when I visit Santorini again!

Get ready to be spoilt rotten by the owner himself, George. From the moment you arrive for every bit of your needs, George is there to offer advise and help.
Only four suites here and it makes it so much better. The personalized service, great food, fantastic view, superb amenities and the exclusivness of it all makes the stay one to remember.
Located a short walk away from the main town of Fira and near some great restaurant like Mama Thira, Ikastikies scores five stars for its location.
We stayed in the Spilia suite with two bedrooms and its own private suite and booked an all terraine vehicle to view the island , all on advise from George and what a great idea!
The town is easy to locate, being on the one and only main road, and offers the best view of the sunset.
Dont miss a boat ride on the caldera as well as a visit to the various art shops and galleries that dot the island mostly all a short walk from the hotel.
All in all had a memorable holiday with some great pics and some unforgettable views.

Room Tip: If you have the budget go for the spilia suite with its own pool. Lounging at ur own pool in the aft...

I could easily said that this is the best in Santorini!
The service is very personal. Staffs are very friendly, helpful, and gave recommendations about place to visit and eat. The place has the best view you could imagine. I actually prefer staying at Ikastikies Suites vs hotels in Oia.

When we arrived we found out that we needed to stay one more night cuz the boat out was full, the staff help us find another hotel in Oia area as we request and even drive our luggage there for us.

My friend and I stay in the biggest room with a private swimming pool and it was like heaven! The place is clean, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with Jacuzzi, kitchen, living room, big patio etc. It's VERY romantic and I wished I traveled with a lover instead of a friend. I prefer this type of service over a big hotel. TripAdvisor helped me made decision cuz I read it and this one has very high rate despite not the highest in price.

Room Tip: Obviously the biggest room is the best but it;s for upto 4-5 people. Other rooms are all nice!
