Situated in the one of the best spots of beautiful Santorini, Athina Luxury Suites is one of a kind and rated as one of the best hotels on the island! This luxurious boutique hotel blew me away, let me tell you why…

First of all, you can’t beat the location. Athina Luxury Suites is located in Fira, the capital of Santorini. Fira is known for the most spectacular views of the Caldera and trust me, from the moment you arrive you will be impressed. The views are among the best I have ever seen. You can see Oia from a distance and the sunsets from your private balcony are not to miss. Fira itself is a lovely place with the traditional cave houses and small streets. The village is built on the cliff and there are a lot of shops and amazing restaurants and bars to choose from.

Athina Luxury Suites has been built in 1996 and recently has undergone a complete make over. The hotel only has 16 suites. This actually is the main advantage of Athina Luxury Suites. The fact that they ‘only’ have 16  suites gives them the opportunity to treat each guest as a king or queen and they surely did. Each time you leave or enter the hotel, a friendly front desk member will make you feel at home again offering a great smile and a nice hello.

What I also appreciate about this hotel, is the fact that they combine modern and designer furniture with some traditional elements throughout the hotel.  I read somewhere that Athina Luxury Suites is a perfect ‘Instagram hotel’ and I can easily see why… I appreciated the elegant combination of modern/old and the artful play of colors and luxury fabrics. I could take pictures all day long!

The hotel has a small lobby area where I was welcomed with a biiiiig smile! Loved it! Everything in the hotel is immaculately clean and decorated with style and charm. This is totally different than a big chain hotel, each suite at Athina Luxury Suites is different and unique.

Athina Luxury Suites offers mind blowing views over the Caldera. The romantic location does seem like a dream! This is what paradise looks like! Instead of the large hotels, Athina Luxury Suites is a hidden gem with the most tranquil atmosphere one could wish for. The outdoor infinity pool is overlooking the sea. The very comfortable sunbeds are the perfect spots to read a book or listen to some music while relaxing. I could spend my time here all day long, listening to music and admiring the surrounding areas.

We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite which was like a dream coming true. This suite has recently been renovated and offers only the best of the best: a comfortable lounge area with sofa, an oversized desk, the most comfortable king sized bed.

The best thing about the Honeymoon Suite is the private outdoor heated plunge pool with jets. Trust me, watching the views from your own jacuzzi is the best.

Not only did we have a private outdoor jacuzzi… The Honeymoon Suite also has a luxurious bathroom with single sink and a large walk-in (rain)shower. Guerlain toiletries are provided and are one of my favorite!

Breakfast at Athina Luxury Suites is one of the best breakfasts I have ever experienced. You can order from an à la carte menu and mention your preferred timing. The staff will do their upmost best to serve you right on your private balcony. That is right, we had breakfast while we enjoyed the surrounding views. Again, we were treated like royalty. The food tasted amazing by the way!

Esperisma is one of the highlights at Athina Luxury Suites. This fine dining restaurant offers one of the best views of the entire island and the relaxed atmosphere is heavenly! We thoroughly enjoyed our wonderful dinner here. Not only did the food blew us away, also the service was top notch! The staff was very knowledgeable about each dish and wine. The food was to die for. Chef Zacharakis is a real star in Mediterranean and Greek cuisine! It was one of the best dinners we experienced during our entire trip through Greece!

Our stay at Athina Luxury Suites is unforgettable! With only 16 suites, they are able to provide a very personal approach and service. Every staff member I met was very friendly and accommodating. Nothing is asked for too much. That makes Athina Luxury Suites so unique and unforgettable. The staff members are incredible. Can’t say enough good things about the staff. Every time I met someone, I was greeted with a smile, they all seem to be happy working here which is noticeable and very appreciated as a hotel guest. Highly recommended for a luxurious and romantic getaway in Santorini!
