Indulgent island-style suites—four-poster beds, private plunge pools—with Skaros Rock views and superior service
The village of Imerovigli serves as the veranda to the Aegean, so it’s only fitting that its most coveted sanctuary takes its water views very seriously. From the private balcony in your high-ceilinged suite to the caldera-edge infinity pool, there are a few perches here that don’t gaze seawards. (Couples, go the extra mile by booking the ultra-private Honeymoon suite, which was built into a pre-existing cave and comes with its own outdoor Jacuzzi.) The hotel’s eponymous restaurant, complete with cliff-hugging tables, only serves dinner—expect decadent seafood creations like lobster risotto and linguine with fresh prawns)—while breakfast and lunch are more intimate affairs enjoyed from the comfort of your own terrace. Though the balmy Mediterranean breeze is most likely all the therapy you need, there’s also a jewel-box of a spa, stocked with a hammam, sauna, and treatment room for any outstanding relaxation requirements.
In the Area
You’re just opposite the medieval fortress of Skaros Rock, a storied 15th-century citadel constructed to ward off pirates—if you can hack the steep, one-and-a-half-hour hike. For a glimpse of civilization, take the more leisurely, 20-minute stroll to Fira, home to jewelry boutiques, cafés, and The Museum of Prehistoric Thera, an impressive ode to the Bronze-age settlement of Akrotiri (the fossilized olive trees are especially awe-inducing). About 15 minutes away, Pyrgos, a frozen-in-time village with a pretty, pine-laden town square, offers a respite from the selfie squad. Having trouble deciding? Confer with the hotel’s attentive staff, who can help book a sunset volcano cruise or assist with a reservation at the popular neighborhood joint, Anogi.
How to Get There
There are not enough good things to say about Astra Suites! Every detail of the hotel is so perfectly thought out. The rooms are contemporary but contain very traditional Greek decor and design as well. George and the entire staff are so friendly and helpful to make sure your trip is the best experience of your life. They go above and beyond to make any accommodations that you request. I would highly recommend getting the champagne and chocolate on arrival. The homemade chocolates are mouth watering. I would also recommend having the hotel arrange a boat tour of the island to have the experience of a lifetime.
The Astra Suites is truly a fantasy come true.
Your imagination could not create this place, it is surreal.
The Suites and service are outstanding.
George and his Staff take immense pride in providing impeccable customer service.

We have traveled all over Europe and have stayed at many 5 Star hotels, but this exotic and euphoric hotel is just simply heaven, then the impeccable hospitality turns your stay into a dream vacation.
George, I want to thank you, Stella, and Rose, and each one of your staff for making all of your guest, VIP guest.

We really appreciate you being able to upgrade us and granting us a late check out, we do however realize that you cannot do that frequently, but because it was towards the end of the season you were able to upgrade us.
Just the fact that you had made that decision before we even arrived was exemplary customer service. You exude class, and
your pride in your hotel and staff is remarkable.

This review is simply the truth, and I swear by it.
It is the same description a friend of mine gave to me a year earlier, just in different words.
But boy was she right.
Warmest Regards to all at Astra Suites.
My experience is just perfect and above my expectations, from the beginning of my arrival, I was amazed about the location, the view, the hospitality, the friendly environment, and the professional staff who were keen to do everything possible to make us happy. the room was exceptional with wonderful decoration and colors which really gave us a feeling of peace and tranquility... I loved my room and the view of the sea and caldera. The breakfast served at the balcony was another beautiful detail.
I loved this experience with all the details and looking forward to returning one day soon to Astra Suites.
