This luxury retreat gives you a mountain-top spa and pools with panoramic views of Santorini’s caldera.
Built on an old cliff-top winery, the Suites of the Gods look directly over Santorini’s ancient volcanic crater – now filled with the blue waters of the Aegean. You can admire the views from 2 of the pools.
This hotel is geared towards to adults, so you can expect a peaceful vibe whether you’re unwinding in the cavernous spa or dining in the à la carte restaurant. The village of Megalocori is less than a 10-minute drive away.
We were expected and greeted on arrival by name (nice touch) and given a tour of the whole complex and the spa. We were given a free drink of the local Santorini tipple which was lovely. They offered us a boat excursion but we are both seasick so it wasn't for us, but it did look great. Non of the above felt like a hard sell but more informative. I'm a sucker for an excursion and like to know what is available.
We were given a free upgrade to the presidential suite with a private pool, a four poster bed and a huge private balcony. The views are incredible, and where you sit to eat breakfast is idyllic. The furniture is really modern and the glass balcony outside gives you a daily reminder that you are somewhere quite special. Breakfast was pretty much the same each morning but there was plenty enough on offer for me. Eggs, sausages, toast, bacon, coffee and lots of different teas, juices, cereal, croissants and pain au chocolate, honey and yoghurt etc etc. The staff at breakfast really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and provide you with really top quality service in a morning. They were more then happy to move us inside or outside (depending on weather) check back on us every so often and bring anything we asked for. After a couple of days they remembered our drinks preferences and usually had them waiting! they were also very polite and well spoken and made sure they gave you a "good morning" on the way in and an "enjoy your day" on the way out, little touches make all the difference.
On the fourth day our bed suffered a catastrophic failure (lol). Vaso on reception had us moved to a split level suite (the one we booked originally), which was equally nice and only a little smaller. It didn't have the private balcony but you are closer to the shared facilities so it didn't matter at all. We spent most of our days exploring the island outside of the hotel anyway.
Free transfers are available each day to and from Perissa on the other side of the island. They own a bar there and you are given access to the sun loungers and furniture on the beach. You are not expected to purchase anything, you have the choice. We usually did purchase form the bar ... it's one of the best in Perissa (apart from maybe Tranquillo) it seems fair for the free lift.
I can see from the bad reviews here that people tend to complain about breakfast, the road to the port being noisy and a tendency to overbook the rooms. Breakfast is fine, the port was very busy when we were there ferrying passengers from the cruise ships on coaches. Really you can barely hear it, and we enjoyed watching the coaches struggle up the windy road to the top. Overbooking .... well this didn't happen to us, but we visited in late April. I can imagine it happening in a months time, but if you travel places in peak season and use booking.com I think its a common occurence.
All advice we have read has said the best time to visit Santorini is early or late in the season (April and September). The weather was about 23 degrees celsuis most days, and in places it felt like we had the island to ourselves.
A wonderful, romantic and memorable stay and easily one of the best weeks away I have ever had. Massive thanks to all the staff a Suites of the Gods.More
We felt lucky for staying at Suites of the gods spa hotel. We had a great experience with all the staff, they are super friendly, with great customer service.
Last night our flight got cancelled due to high winds, and after spending a night at a different hotel provided by air line, we called staff at Suites of the gods spa hotel for support next morning.
They picked us up from our hotel, gave us a great room, for a great price. We felt like home again. It couldn't have been done any better!
Helen Sotg with Ria Kiosse and Vaso Gordi been really helpful getting our personal issues resolved and helping us feel stressless in stressful situations.
Thank you girls!!! We would definitely recommend and stay at your hotel next time.More
This hotel is lovely with spectacular views, I'm returning in the summer with friends and staying elsewhere but would like to come and show the girls where we stayed. The staff were welcoming and lovely for our whole stay. We're not demanding holiday makers but we did witness the staff bending over backwards for there more high end/highly strung guests.
The food was lovely, rooms clean and relaxing. It's a very romantic place.
Location is great, you can get a local bus into town and the hotel have a taxi that runs daily to there sister resort by the beach, which is lovely. Food is great and the beach is clean and you are well looked after.
Thank you for making our stay lovely.More
Unforgettable View and location
Went here for our 1st anniversary and fell in love all over again. We rented a car which I recommend and explored the island as Suites of the Gods is situated nicely in the middle and away from all the busy spots. We went 7-10 minutes to Thira everyday and also 5 mins to Pyrgos and 15-20mins to Oia, the black sand beaches and airport. The view is amazing from every part of the hotel and the breakfast lounge. Staff was very nice and the Spa was lovely, my wife got the chocolate embrace massage and wrap, then we did the indoor pool together. The room was very stylish, we had to climb stairs in one of the Meisonic suites room 103 (Hermes). The only thing is you should crack open a window when you take a hot bath or shower, because the window steams up and you dont want to miss a minute of the view. Unforgettable hotelMore
We got married here and I couldn't fault a single thing, we were upgraded for free to the most fantastic suite, the food was just wonderful, fresh, local cuisine. All the staff were so attentive, we had lovely treatments in the spa which were expensive but no more so than any hotel spa, and the view? Just breathtaking! More
