Astra was recommended to us for our honeymoon by our wedding planner who spent her own honeymoon there! So how could we go wrong, right? Of course we did some additional research of our own, but kept coming back to Astra Suites, mesmerized by the amazing photos on their website but still wary if it could truly be that beautiful! Well we are happy to report, it truly is that beautiful, and then some!
From the moment we were whisked away from the airport by Astra's friendly driver, and deposited into the caring, capable arms of the incredible Astra staff, we knew our wedding planner was right all along, there could be no better honeymoon spot in Santorini, or the world, for that matter!
The hotel manager, George Karayiannis, runs a tight ship, we never experienced anything less than stellar. From the superb breakfasts served on our balcony every morning, to the sunset cocktails pool side, and the starry alfresco dinners served late into the night, talk about romantic! George even sent us sunset champagne & chocolates to enjoy at our own private swimming pool, and other charming honeymoon surprises throughout the week, completely complimentary just for honeymooners! His staff suggested a rental car for at least a day or two to explore the island at our own pace, which we highly recommend, especially since they arrange the car to be delivered and picked up there, so no worries. We also enjoyed leisurely walks along the caldera cliffs near the hotel, so pretty! But in all our island exploration, nothing matched the stunning views from our very own balcony at Astra Suites. Hands down, the best honeymoon spot in Santorini!

My friend and I decided at the last minute to spend the long Greek holiday weekend in Santorini, since the late October weather was still so fabulous! Even though it was off season, the Astra Suites was still open, although practically all the other hotels in their area were already closed for the season. We were so happy to find them open for business and they seemed very happy to see us too, even at the end of a long busy season, all the staff was so cheerful and inviting!
Astra is located in the village called Imerovigli, close to the main town called Fira, but quieter and more relaxing, it is the perfect location on Santorini in my opinion. We explored the island during the day, but always looked forward to returning to our relaxing suite and ordering a bottle of wine and the delicious room service meals, to be enjoyed on our private balcony at sunset time. Did I mention Astra has the view to the BEST sunsets on earth?! We can't wait to return to this perfect location as soon as possible!

Our group of 12 persons stayed here three nights and we occupied six of their junior and senior suites located adjacent to the pool. The Astra is beautiful, well-managed boutique hotel with a killer view and excellent staff from reception, porters, pool bartender, food service to house-keeping.

The room decor is minimalistic, but comfortable. Our room had a small kitchenette and fridge, which was great for storing our wine and snacks. Each morning, breakfast was brought to our rooms. Depending on the temperature, you can eat either outside or inside. The quality of the breakfast offered was very good and quantity satisfying. The entire property is kept spotless and house-keeping did an excellent job in our room every day. We did not have an opportunity to dine at the hotel's restaurant, so I can't comment on this. However, I did eat at both "Anogi" and "Estia" and I found them both to be very good and fairly priced.

Given the location and design of this hotel, you must be physically fit and agile enough to deal with a lot of stairs/steps. Also, the place is best suited for honeymooners and couples. It is not suitable for families with children or infants. In short, it's for adults only.

Room Tip: If you're going to go to the time and effort to stay here, you might as well book their best roo...

Me and my wife took a romantic escape at Astra Suites, staying in a Pool suite for a few days in late August 2013. The suite was really fantastic, far beyond our high expectations, very large, very clean, very tidy, and with an unbelievable big bathroom. The private swimming pool was really huge and impeccably clean and set within a very private, very romantic balcony including a double sun bed and outdoor living area. The view to the caldera and sunset is breathtaking. Service is top, with very sympathetic and client oriented reception managers and room service attendants, who were always keen to endorse all our requests whilst being very cautious and conscious about preserving our privacy and romantic intimacy.
It was a fantastic and memorable experience, we highly recommend this hotel!

George and his staff's professionalism and care is a credit to how well Astra is run.
They bent over backwards to make our stay very enjoyable and following a bad experience with a prior hotel, George managed to make our honeymoon a memorable occasion and one of the best holidays we've been on.
George and the Astra team were nothing short of fantastic. If you want a holiday with break taking views, great food and wonderful service from a team who's knows the meaning of the term 'customer service' then book with Astra, you won't be disappointed.




As far as we are concerned I feel we'll be seeing you all again. You have made it very easy to want to revisit Santorini and already Astra holds a lot of sentiment for us.

I'm not someone who typically writes reviews, but I am someone who appreciates an excellent hotel with top notch service who wants to give credit where and when it is due. The Astra Suites was above and beyond what I expected during my stay in Santorini.

Aside from the absolutely perfect location between Thira and Oia and fantastic placement on the hill to watch gorgeous sunsets, the staff really stood out to me and my friend. They were very friendly and accommodating...even helping us book ferry tickets for the next leg of our trip from Mykonos to Athens.

The food at the restaurant was delicious. And I'd go so far as to say, the included daily breakfast was the best I have ever had on any trip.

I would highly recommend staying here to anyone visiting Santorini.

Every good thing you read on tripadvisor about Astra Suites is 100% true! We stayed here for 5 nights for our much belated honeymoon in October and Astra is the perfect place to experience the beauty of Santorini! The views of the caldera are lovely and the daily sunsets from our balcony or the pool area were better then any other spot we found on the island without the crowds! The room service was always yummy and the breakfast served to your balcony daily was such a great way to start the day! I cannot say enough about the amazing staff at Astra, everyone was friendly and always super helpful! The location is amazing, the service is outstanding, book your trip here you will not regret it!
