Located in Imerovigli, the highest point of Santorini, Hotel Aqua Luxury Suites is a five-star holiday apartment complex with stunning views over the caldera.
Each air-conditioned apartment is decorated with elegant simplicity, with touches of luxury like Egyptian cotton sheets. Minibars are provided, along with free WiFi, and some apartments have access to a plunge pool or hot tub.
A full range of concierge and event services are available to guests, including airport and local area shuttles and wedding services. Guests can be pampered in the onsite spa.
A complimentary made-to-order breakfast is served to guests in their rooms each morning, and room service is available at other times of day too.
The main shopping district of Thira is within two miles of Hotel Aqua Luxury Suites, while Megaro Gyzi Museum is just a mile away.
The service seems to be impeccable for most guests, and the custom-order, personal delivery breakfast is a particular highlight. Instead of having to leave the comfort of your suite to queue up at a buffet, you simply select the items you want, and breakfast will be served to you each morning.
Soak up the caldera views.
Santorini's caldera holds a real allure for any visitor to the island, and guests love this Imerovigli location. You'll be snap happy at sunset, when golden hues burnish the white apartments and dazzling blue water, while Thira is easy to get to for shopping and nightlife.
Stunning Santorini style.
Guests love the charm and style of the apartments, which are each individually designed and furnished with unique items. The apartments with balconies offer breathtaking views which guests can't get enough of, and everything is kept spotlessly clean.
It's a workout to reach the apartments.
Guests point out that there's a steep climb with a fair amount of steps to the apartments, with no other access routes, so you'll need to be prepared for that, and it may not be suitable for guests with mobility problems.
Only some rooms have pool access.
Guests often arrive expecting access to a pool, but this feature only comes with some rooms. For those staying in one of the ‘cave' rooms, the experience can be a little disappointing given the price, particularly since there is no main pool accessible to all guests. Previous guests recommend upgrading to a room with a pool to make the most of your stay.
It doesn't come cheap.
While enjoying the apartment and services, some guests feel that it's still overpriced for what you get. Little niggles, like bugs coming into the room, or your private Jacuzzi being overlooked, make more of a difference when the apartments command such high rates, and they don't always quite achieve perfection.
