There were more expensive hotels in Oia but I don't see why we would have stayed anywhere else. The location was walking distance to sunset point in Oia, maybe a 20 min walk down a great cobblestone path with shops along the way. From the moment we arrived we felt pampered. The staff greeted us with a smile and ice cold lemonades. We sat on the front porch of the lobby and took it all in as our bags were carried from the shuttle they provided from the airport to our rooms (not an easy walk down all of the stairs). The manager no duty described the resort and amenities to us, told us a little about the island and activities, and then gave us the tour. She was very patient with questions and could not have been more friendly. Our room was beautiful, all white, extremely clean, well stocked with snacks and drinks. We brought a 4 month old infant with us and the staff went out of their way to get a crib from another hotel which they set up quickly. Our stay consisted mostly of enjoying the view and relaxing. We have seen some epic infinity pools before, but Kirini's pool is right up there with the best of them. After enjoying a splendid breakfast spread every morning with fresh squeezed juice, frappes, and omelettes and pastries with local ingredients, we staked out a spot at the pool every morning. They have these wonderful double lounge chairs that look across the pool to the caldera and the bay. The staff is very attentive with drink and food orders throughout the day and we spent hours their swimming, reading, and relaxing. AT nightfall we would walk down to the end of Oia for the sunset. We had dinner at the resort one night. The chef is very creative and the food was locally sourced and delicious, really innovative combinations. The tables for dinner are the same as the tables for breakfast, you can sit on the pool deck and enjoy the views or have a private setting in one of the caves. As an early birthday gift my wife got a massage in the private spa. They only see one person or couple at a time, so you have the whole place to yourself. She really enjoyed this, said the experience was great. We spent 4 days and 3 nights at Kirini Suites. I would go back every year if we could, what an incredibly relaxing trip. The staff was warm and kind, spoke excellent English, and enhanced our experience along the way.
