Astarte Suites in Santorini, Greece

Astarte Suites in Santorini, Greece

We recently visited Astarte Suites on the magical island of Santorini in Greece. Santorini, one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea, is a sickle-shaped island that was shaped by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century B.C.E. The inner side of the island has a breathtaking view out onto the vulcanic islands in the middle, which the islanders call the “Caldera view”. It is also coincidentally the side on which the sun sets. All the suites at Astarte have this view, creating the most amazing setting for relaxation and picture-taking.

Arriving at one of the “Astarte Suites”, the biggest suites at the hotel, I couldn’t help but sit down on the lounge bed and take in the breathtaking view. Every one of the biggest suites comes with a private infinity pool, however the smaller suites have access to the hotel’s main infinity pool which is also not too shabby! (See the article’s header picture).

Breakfast at the suites are amazing. You get to choose from an assortment of platters including omelettes, local meats, local cheeses, breads and jams, fresh juices, coffees, and more. What’s more, every breakfast is a champagne breakfast, bellini’s and mimosa’s galore!

The fruit platters are simply amazing, particularly the fresh Greek watermelon.

Here I was playing chess by the private infinity pool on a marble and bronze chess set I bought in Mykonos, with of course our Fleur-de-Lys bracelet on the wrist.

The view looking out onto the breakfast table and infinity pool from the indoor jacuzzi. On top of amazing amenities and views the hotel also has excellent, kind and caring service, not least of which by the owners George and Kosta themselves. Because of them many customers, including ourselves, look forward to returning time and time again. We cannot rate Astarte Suites more highly and hope you enjoyed our pictures!
