“Had Romeo met Juliet in Ikastikies, it wouldn't have ended up as a tragedy”
Reviewed September 1, 2009

A strategically located hotel with a cozy atmosphere, Ikastikies elegant suites is the best choice one could have to enjoy his/her stay on the heavenly island of Santorini. The hotel with its unique circular architecture and colorful interiors is by no means one of the most elegant and stylish residences on Firostefani, overlooking the volcanic island of Nea Kameni and the unforgettable sunset that casts its final rays on Fira before fading away in the horizon. The distinctive suites, which are extended from the caves of the rocky heights, provide the guests with an understanding that could only be explained through experience. And the friendly staff of the lodge spices up the already colorful picture. Bon Voyage.

With my wife, we decided to go Santorini for our Honeymoon. After spending couple weeks to decide about hotel, we pick Ikastikies with generous offers of Roditis Giorgos, Sales Manager of the hotel.

He personally pick us up from the port and during our drive to hotel he gave very valuable insight info about the island. When we arrived to our room, Spillia Suit, a bottle of famous Santorini wine and fresh and tasty fruits were waiting for us at sunset. The hotel has 4 suits, and ours is the biggest. We had one living area along with a small kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms with two bathrooms, along with a private jacuzzi which has seaview. We had an amazing private pool and terrace. From one of the bedroom there is direct connect to the pool and with the amazing and very intelligent architecture, from our pool, we could enjoy the amazing volcano view with our drinks.

The hotel is very new and thus you feel like you own the place. We felt like we are staying in our summer house in Santorini. Its location is very good, you don't need a car unless you want to go to Oia or Perissa / Camari side of the island. Firostefani has very nice restaurants and cafes, and it is only 10-15 mins to walk to Thira, which is the largest town of the island.

The staff is very friendly. Justin, guess his position is Hotel Supervisor, has already more than ten years of experience in tourism which you can benefit easliy. With Roditis, he suggest very good spots in the island, to see and to eat. You can't miss his special omlets, we still remember their amazing taste.

We wanted to rent a car for one day, and with their connection we rent a very good and brand new car for a very good price. The best part is, we didn't go to the rental place, the guy came over to our suit and he came back to pick up the car as well.

In addition we looked for a private yatch tour, and Roditis suggested us a tour, and we trust him and took. It was one of the most beautiful thing during our honeymoon, a private 11meters bayliner, with a very intelligent captain, Yorgos as I remember. He took us to volcano island, to Therissa (the island next to Santorini) and gave us very good information about the place.

The last day was sad for us, because we felt like we were leaving our home. Roditis, as the first day, took us back to the port on time.

I strongly recommend Ikastikies to anyone who wish to have a romantic holiday. We had opportuntiy to visit other rooms, and they are just as beautiful as ours, every room has unique desing with amazing seaview.

We are very glad to spent our honeymoon in Ikastikies and plan to visit back in couple years.
