A serene and charming destination in the heart of Santorini
For every popular destination of the world, there should be a manual. Let’s take for example Santorini. It is a dream island, yet it has its own secrets in order for the visitor to enjoy it. I have been there many times and have realized that whenever I plan my trip, I should know well in advance my needs and pick a hotel accordingly. Will I stay for long or not, will I have a car, will I be with my family?
Kalisti Hotel & Suites is the one I choose every time I want to be right in the heart of the island in order to absorb the caldera beauty but also live in a typical island rhythm, swimming, sunbathing, relaxing and not just join the crowds at the busiest spots of the island.
In a peaceful area, but with “key location” in the heart of Fira Town, this charming hotel is just minutes away from the stunning caldera rim and the vibrant island nightlife but also a stone’s throw away from a car park (meaning that I can have my car with me and be able to explore the beaches). Attracting an international clientele, Kalisti Hotel & Suites remains a valuable address shared among families, the meeting point for friends from all over the world, a destination for those who wish to experience the cosmopolitan vibe of Santorini with access to every piece of the puzzle of the island’s lifestyle.
What I particularly love in this hotel -that has been just renovated- is the generous in size swimming Pool, actually the biggest in Fira. In this way, I can really take it easy while making the most of my stay on the island ! Here one can relax with fresh fruit juices and exotic cocktails or enjoy the light cuisine of Pergola Pool Bar.
I also adore the rooms and the decoration style. Serene and charming, Kalisti is designed according to the rules of Cycladic architecture reflecting the impressive beauty of Santorini’s landscape, no-where else to be found in the world. Interiors are exclusive and at the same time comforting, blending minimalism with the warmth of natural materials, island simplicity with elegance, earthy colors with hues of grey highlighted by touches of gold. The 50 rooms and suites are spacious and comfortable, bringing together modern design with tradition as expressed through artisanal materials and objects, with every detail playing a part in the overall feeling of deep relaxation.
