My travel partner booked the place based on trip advisor recommendation. However, we were not able to stay 4 nights as we wanted as it was fully booked. But the wait was definitely worth it, the place is by far one of the best accomodation that I have stayed in my 2 weeks trip in Greece. The place has definitely exceeded my expectations, from the room, to the hostess with the mostest, the ever obliging and mutli-functional Victor to the Katerina who recommended us the best soulavkis in town.
The rooms are beautifully done up with clean white linens with a charming feel especially with little tea lights, the little kitchenette has all the necessary cutlery etc. The bathroom is excellent with a luxurious feel. The pool is great and views are amazing. The best part.... No scent of donkey poo that plagues you in Fira.
Of course the creme de la creme was the jacuzzi that Despina has kindly booked at sunset on our first night with complimentary local wines and some appetisers. What more can one ask for...

We stayed at Anastasis in August of last year, having read the reviews on trip advisor and expecting the best - we were not disappointed. From the first to the last sunset nothing failed to impress. The owners, as so many others have already stated, were the most perfect hosts. The food and the service were faultless and the attention to detail was without doubt second to none. We have travelled to many countries and many Greek islands and even though we were not on honeymoon (the only couple in the apartments that weren't) we were treated no differently. Would we go back? probably not......... there's too much out there still to see...........would we recommend that others go? without a doubt.......... would we recommend it to hoenymooners? definitely but it's also perfect for those who want quality time with quality weather and quality service - worth every single euro! Enjoy.................... Steevi and Zoex

PS - if you do visit, ask Despina to show you the sleeping God of Santorini - she'll know what you mean.

What can we say that hasn't already been said!!

My husband and I stayed here for a week the end of August. We had a late flight so arranged for the hotel to provide transport from the airport. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Despina who after briefly talking to us about the apartments showed us to our suite. We were blown away - we knew we were somewhere special!! Despina had kept it as a surpirse that they had installed a jaccuzi hot tub on our terrace. We were then treated to some Greek Meze and some wine which we welcomed after our flight. Our room and our terrace twinkled with night lights - it was so romantic.

The following day we met with Katerina who is so friendly and she explained all about the island, what to do, what to see, where to eat. She was so informative. Thank you so much Katerina. She made some wonderful recommendations.

During our stay we celebrated our first wedding anniversary and Despina arranged for a bottle of sparkling wine and a beautiful chocolate cake to be broght to our room. It was such a lovely treat and it made our day extra special.

These apartments are amazing. They are spotless and the grounds and pool area are pristine. What makes this stand out is the level of detail and the level of service - 5* all the way. Nothing is too much trouble from car hire, restaurant reservations, taxi reservations. Your every whim is catered for and you are always greeted with a friendly smile. Thanks so much to Despina, Katerina and Victor who were absolutely fantasic.

The worst thing about these apartments is that you never want to leave them!! Relaxing in our hot tub in the evening sipping a cocktail and watching the sunset was the highlight of every day.

My wife and I spent 7 heavenly days here as our daughter was getting married elsewhere in Santorini. The accolades that Anastasis gets in the latest awards are richly deserved and Despina and her team must be justifiably proud.
Having arrived after a hastily arranged 23 hour journey via Athens (we were victims of the XL fiasco) to set foot, exhausted and fraught, into this haven of peace, calm, style and vision was more than we could have hoped for.
Despina had rearranged our taxi without fuss, our room was cleaned and made available sooner than we had a right to expect, we were given tea and biscuits on arrival. And in the following week the service only got better and better.
The apartments themselves have the most unbelievable setting, wonderful views and are truly classy. Everything is kept spotless, all day every day and food ordered from the menu arrived with panache and a flourish. Breakfast was especially good.
On the day of our daughter's wedding we had the most relaxing preparations with Despina and her team making sure we had everything we needed.
Please do not go there if you want a noisy, lively, "party on" type of holiday. You may well be disappointed as tranquility is designed into the apartments and surrounding gardens and pool area.
We have stayed in Santorin before, but nowhere like this. Anastasis is top drawer in every category and we long to go back which given that they will be even more in demand now, will probably require booking way in advance.
p.s. This amazing place is far way better than other more prestigious hotels in Oia or Imerovigli.
Go! Enjoy! Be amazed.

I stayed at anastasis apartments 3 years ago in August. My husband and I have since continued to travel the world and this hotel is to-date our best travel experience! What a sight to see. It is surreal to look back at everyone's photos and think "I've been there!". If there is any doubt, don't. Book your stay immediately! You'll love it!

A remarkably well-run and well-sited option for those who wish to laze and gaze over the horizon pool into that implausibly blue caldera which draws so many to Santorini. Anastasis Apartments is not a hotel and no place to stay if you prefer the tourist crush of Fira or dislike your own company. However, breakfast served on your balcony, simple lunches by the pool and snacks at any time with good local wines, delivered by the unfailingly obliging and multi-functional Victor or the bubbly and helpful Katerina provide a welcome respite from the swarms of tourists who daily pour from cruiseships, settle on the town like locusts and depart mid-afternoon via the cable-car. Some previous reviewers have remarked, a little unkindly, upon hostess Despina's "house rules" but she is at pains to make her guests feel welcome and have some fun with them at the same time.

Apart from the beauty and tranquility of the vista from both poolside and apartment areas there is a large, comfortable sitting room (offering reading material, music selections,and internet access), a spa balcony and direct entry to walking tracks leading either to Fira (30 minutes) or to Oia, strewn like fresh ricotta along the clifftop about 90 minutes away. For those not into walking there is a local bus stop at the front door and taxis are readily available. The taxi ride into Fira costs only around five Euros and the bus about half that amount. If you are not renting a car or using the shuttle service, Despina will arrange airport transfers (20 minutes each way) upon request.

If there is any downside to Anastasis it is only the absence of local dining places. (I deliberately exclude the nearby pizzeria which is more of a bar and also the truly awful Thasos Tavern, a hundred or so metres away, which attempts to pass off its dilapidation, ineptitude and indigestible offerings as rustic charm and atmosphere, most of which emanates from the exhausts of tourist coaches roaring by your table on the way from Oia. It is inexpensive but never was the adage that you get no more than you pay for more apt. On the night we inadvisedly "ate" there, ignoring Katerina's passive discouragement, three staff found it impossible to co-ordinate the delivery of simultaneous courses to the only three small tables until a bare-
chested man with a small dog under his arm strolled in off the road and took some charge of the shambolic performance.) Far better is a family-run taverna a few kilometres toward Oia which will send a car to collect and then return you to the apartments or taking the scenic walk to Firastefano where Vanilia Restaurant is one of several excellent places for dinner. Despina and Katerina can offer numerous other suggestions and arrange transport if needed.

Although travellers flock to Oia for the sunsets, which are spectacular, they are no less so from Anastasis and especially from your own poolside area with a fresh Greek salad or sorbetsand cold Santorini wine...and no need to take the bus home.

We stayed here and got upgraded to a suite and really had a wonderful time. Despina & Helen were fantastic! If you are going to stay in Imerovigli, then this is where you want to be. Especially for a romantic time! Some of the other places can be not as quite and serene as this place, but yet those merrier places are just a couple of minutes a way. A beautiful experience!
