“What a relaxing stay”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

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.

Kirini is such a wonderful place to spend some relaxing days. Everything is perfect: the resort itsself, the breakfast and dining, all people are very friendly and the service is excellent...
We would have liked to stay longer, but for sure we will come back another time.

Room Tip: We only know our room (Nr. 15) and this was good

We have stayed at many 5 star hotels but have never experienced anything like Kirini. The level of customer service and attention to detail is second to none. From the check in (where we were met with chilled lemonade ) to the pool service (Arturo and his team ) to our special cave dinner, we were treated as if we were the only guests in the hotel. When we mentioned at dinner that our friends were celebrating an anniversary, they returned to their room to find rose petals and a note of congratulations from Eva, the manager. If you are looking for a magical experience as part of your Greek Adventure, don't miss Kirini.

The Kirini Suites and Spa capture the essence of the magical island of San Torini. The rooms and the service are superior. I have traveled around the world and this experience will remain on the top of my list as a must see and must return to experience.
The staff is attentive but not overbearing. They truly understand how to be present and offer assistance yet blend into the background and allow for complete guest relaxation.
The hotel capitalizes on the natural beauty of the surroundings without begin garish or insensitive to the environmnet. This is truly paradise on earth!

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms...think they all have a view. Must be fit and prepared to walk up and down mu...

We just came back from our trip to Greece including a stay in a sister hotel (Chromata) to Kirini in Santorini. We booked massage at the A-Spa one afternoon and what a treat! It was by far the most amazing spa experience we've ever had. The therapists, Dorothea and Athina greeted us and sent us on our way (we had the whole place to ourselves) to use the pool, jacuzzi, steam and shower. When done, we were treated to fabulous massages side by side. The massages were fantastic, Dorothea and Athina were wonderful and the ambience was amazing. They even helped us figure out what to do next in Oia. This is a must! You will never forget it!

If you are able to spendable night in Kirini it will have a lasting impression. The hotel is elegant but simple. The rooms are quiet and the pool and the environment around the polis great. The hotel even messed up the first night of our reservation and we had to be moved to a sister property but the experience was so great we would still highly recommend. You will be happy with time at the hotel around the pool or using as a base to explore Oia.

My experience at Kirini Suites and Spa was by far the best hotel stay I have ever had. Before we arrived, my boyfriend had been secretly emailing with the hotel manager, Eva, as he planned to propose on vacation and wanted help with the "set-up". At the time, I had no idea... but now that I know it was planned, I think the whole staff was in on it... and they kept a good secret! We were greeted upon arrival, and seated in the beautiful courtyard as we waited for the staff to "check and see if there was a room available for us to see"... we were guided down to the room, and when the doors opened there was chilled champagne on the table and the room was drenched in red roses and candles. Suddenly it was just my boyfriend and I...and he quickly became my fiancé. It was the most romantic moment I've experienced, and the fact that this hotel could create this for us (and play along with the secret) is incredible to me. That is what you get when you stay at Kirini- the feeling that YOU matter. The room was stunning- it was immaculately clean, the bed was incredibly comfortable, the rainfall shower was amazing...they even give you a cell phone, so you can contact the hotel when you're out! Everything about this place is magical.

As if that weren't enough, the manager Eva gave us the option to transfer to the hotels sister property (Katikies Hotel) after our first night. Apparently the 2 story honeymoon suite with its own private jacuzzi was available, so she facilitated our move and we were upgraded at no additional charge. The Katikies Hotel was also amazing! Same as Kirini, the staff was incredibly kind and welcoming...so much that we didn't want to leave the hotel! We normally like to get out and explore, but not this time... the hotel was too good! Want a reservation at any restaurant? Done. Car service? Arranged. Room service? ASAP. There was nothing about our stay that was not perfect... that is what you can expect if you stay at Kirini or Katikies... perfection.
