Tucked away in the heart of Kamari and just a stone’s throw from one of Santorini’s longest and most popular black sand beaches, the exuberant Acqua Vatos smoothly combines the charms of a family beach hotel, a romantic sanctuary and a cosmopolitan retreat.
Following a revamp in 2013, the slick 32 room-and-suites boutique hotel has emerged as an intriguing and captivating island retreat of unique style, masterfully merging playful pop design with a traditional flair and children-friendly features. The juxtaposition of the warm, yet discreet, service with the hip aesthetics represents an innovative and appealing hospitality scenario; a scenario that revolves around a spectacular location, equally catering for couples in love, families and restless party animals.
Acqua Vatos’ most incredible trait is that it allows its guests to savour hours of relaxation and invigorating serenity at its peaceful and absolutely quiet rooms or even its private vineyard, despite the property’s proximity to the hustle and bustle of Kamari -a famous beach resort that hosts hip boutiques, inviting restaurants and fish taverns, cafes, bars and vibrant nightclubs.
Guests may enjoy the pleasures of the sea all day long at the sandy beach, relax by the hotel’s extra large swimming pool while sipping a cocktail at the bar, explore the island’s gastronomy scene or stroll through the charming town greeted by the locals. After dark you may opt to watch a new film at the open-air cinema or rub shoulders with beautiful, young types at the island’s most lively bars and nightclubs.
Time flies in Santorini’s most popular beach resort, which manages to effortlessly enchant all its visitors who may be wildly different, but all share one common passion: the passion for the unsurpassed hospitality of a welcoming and exciting beach hotel. The Acqua Vatos hospitality.

Where to start? The hotel is located in the village of Akrotiri in the south of the island, which is somewhat less popular with tourists than Thira or Oia. What this means is that you will be staying in a beautiful hotel located in a quiet village, with the most stunning view of caldeira out your room. The room itself is more of a Cyclades-style white house, which adds to the authenticity of the experience. The fantastic Charis (hotel manager) was there for every question/request that we had: he helped us rent our car, gave us dozens of suggestions for places to visit, and recommended the best restaurant we went to on the island. Kalestesia Suites (and Santorini) were hands down the highlight of our stay in the Cyclades.
Everything Everyone Everyday was perfect! "My accommodation at this hotel was something really beautiful! A unique perfect 360° view & friendly and helpful staff to help me whatever I asked and whenever I wanted. About my room? Large + cozy + with fantastic view!! What more can someone ask for? All the above and my need for relaxing found the perfect match.."
We were warmly welcomed to kalestesis suites. Thanos was very nice and helpful with recommendations where to go visit and eat. The hotel is a bit remote but we rented a car which saved us. The rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast was excellent! Gigantic omelette ! Very pleased with our stay.
Kalestesia Suites is a gem of a place tucked away from the main parts of the island. It is on top of a hill and offers fabulous views of the whole island. You could hire a car if you will be exploring the island i.e. Oia and Thira otherwise there are local buses that are meant to run every half hour to Fira. The food is absolutely delicious. The pasta with prawns was amazing and breakfast was really good and generous. The room was really nice and clean and had fabulous views of the Caldera.
We visited Kalestesia Suites while on a trip celebrating our 30th anniversary. We had been hoping to visit the Greek Islands for years. When you build up something in your mind for so long it is hard not to fear that it won't meet your expectations. There really isn't one thing we would change about our stay. Our accommodations were beautiful and clean. The bed was comfortable and the view over the caldera was amazing. It is not located in the main cities, but they were a short drive away, which we found preferable. The management was professional, warm, and accommodating. They gave us lots of great sight seeing, dining and beach going suggestions. We came away relaxed and refreshed. We recommend the Kalestesia Suites enthusiastically and without hesitation.
Hidden Gem"This place is truly a hidden gem and is even better in real life than anything you’ll ever see or read about online. You won’t want to stay in Oia or Fira or anywhere else on the island if you come here. It’s off the beaten track, literally, at the the top of a hill giving 360 degree views of Santorini away from the maddening crowds."
Breathtaking views! Staff is top notch! "Everything about this place is amazing! From the moment we sat down with the host, we knew this place was going to be awesome! The host goes above and beyond anything we have experienced! And we travel frequently. The host made us feel comfortable and very welcomed! He made sure that we were taken care of. We got a superior room with hot tub and a caldera view and we felt like rock stars! Incredible view from our patio! All the staff were exceptional. Our waiter, the chef, the maid, even the maintenance guy made us feel so special. The food is amazing! The chef makes mouth watering meals. Also the onsite spa is quite nice. I can't say enough good stuff about this place... you will not regret staying here!"
