It was wonderful to have our own beach facing Villa and private pool. The breakfast was great and a real highlight for our stay was ordering their ‘floating breakfast’ (this is an additional charge but a real experience!). Although the location of the hotel is further out from the more populated areas of Santorini, the helpful Reception team can organise transfers or help you hire a vehicle if you want to explore Santorini.Sophie, UK, June 2022
We came to Santorini fri Australia. Desiterra resort was a very special place. The staff and the owner Dimitri made myself and my children feel special from the very first day. I can’t recommend this hotel/resort enough. The villa’s are beautifully designed, even to the art work inside. I can’t wait to come back. We are very sad to leave this magical place and miss out on Greek night tonight!!! Mel Dom and LucaMelissa, Australia, May 2022
We have just arrived back from a 4 day stay at Desiterra as a family and what an amazing time we had! The Staff are amazing and where excellent with our toddler and with myself ( being almost 7 months pregnant). Nothing was ever too much and even with the hotel having no kids menu , the staff still accommodated for our little boy with pastas and foods that were not on the menu. We Also loved the Greek night and Jazz night! The location was perfect! We live in a very busy Dubai so the peace and a quiet location was just what we needed. Nothing is too far in Santorini and everywhere is driveable! We would hire a car next time though but the hotel taxi service was always there to take us wherever we wanted to go.Chloefrankie, Dubai, June 2022
We went to Desiterra Resort, Santorini during Easter break this year and undoubtedly it was our best stay so far. Their standards on hospitality where so high. Each and every staff member was always cheerful and very helpful.
The resort is in a very nice quiet location, spreaded on larger area, very clean and had everything you need for a relaxing amazing holiday. Their villas are awesome with private pools, beautifully decorated and super clean. We had amazing sea side sunrise view from the bedroom that we will never forget.
Being there with our kid it was a best place to stay. Being vegetarian chef made sure we get a lot of varieties of delicious food in breakfast. We are so impressed with the place as well as their hospitality. We really wish to go there again and again. If there could be more than 5 stars we would definitely give them. Keep up the good work Desiterra team and thank you for making our holiday so memorable.
I highly recommend Desiterra for any age group stay. Feel everything was excellent at this place.Arjun, Prague, June 2022
One of the best hotels we stayed in! It is located in a very peacfull place 10 minutes by car from the capital. After visiting Oia and Thira we think that this "in the middle of nowhere" location is a huge benefit of the hotel. Our villa was fantastic! Comftable, stylish, well equipped and super clean. The views were hypnotizing. You could watch the most beautiful sea sunrises literally from the bed! The food was delicious and the staff is very friendly, always smiling and happy to help you with all your requests making you feel that they really want to make your stay unique and exceed your expectations. We simply loved this place and all Desiterra staff efforts made our stay a really amazing 5 stars experience that we definitely can recommend. And special thanks to one and only Rania, this hotel is lucky to have you .Thank you all for making our stay so amazing!Anita, Poland, May 2022
Desiterra is a very beautiful and quiet hotel facing the sea. The reception was very warm, the team is totally available, listening to your expectations and will put all its heart and energy to make your stay an incredible moment. The breakfasts are fabulous, tasty and delicious. All the more appreciable that you can enjoy them in the sun facing the sea and by the pool. From the hotel owner, to the reception staff, to the cleaning ladies and waitresses: everyone is absolutely friendly, smiling and helpful. Desiterra offers an incredible experience. They offer fantastic activities on the island and take care of all the organization to make sure you have the best vacation possible. I would come back. Thank you so much.Leila, France, April 2022
Such a friendly and welcoming resort. We had a two bedroom villa for two couples and it was plenty of room for us all. The small kitchenette was sufficient for lunches with room for food and drinks. We enjoyed our private pool as well as the main pool areas. By far it is the staff who make this resort so special though. We were given so many recommendations for meals and all were fantastic. We were also helped with bookings for cars and excursions which ensured absolutely everything went to plan. Nothing was too much trouble.Rose, UK, October 2020
If you want to rest, enjoy and relax the serene views of Santorini and still be a few minutes drive away from all of the island's attractions, this is the place to be. It is minimalistic luxurious, tradiditional and authentic, private and peacefull. The staff is friendly and offers good tips on what to visit and where to eat. Also, they book you reservatations, order food, rent a car. This is the best vacation I ever had and I have to thank Desiterra for providing such excellent services.Gabriela, Trip Advisor, October 2020
We had a great time in Santorini and the very nice Desiterra resort. Very stylish, clean and quiet place with all facilities and very friendly and customer oriented staff. We can warmly recommend the Desiterra to anyone staying in Santorini for a vacation. You won't regret it!Peter, Trip Advisor, October 2020
This is Paradise! It's difficult to describe the amazing experience that Desiterra offers, because this is more than just a 5* resort, this is a place that you immediately recognize to have been built out of passion for hospitality and tourism, to deliver the vacation that anyone dreams of. The resort is situated in a discreet area of the island, on a vast territory that offers all visitors privacy. Our villa had sea view and mountain view and it was spectacular. The villas recompose the Greek spirit and it is splendidly furnished in a minimalistic style. We would often leave the front door open and slept while feeling the Santorini breeze. The resort is very well secured and has full day and night guarding and video cameras for your safety. The most amazing part was waking up and walking on the terrace to see the sunrise from the sea. They had a local restaurant that delivered food to our door. Also, the breakfast was incredible: it included home-made ingredients, all local foods and 100% natural! I could definitely sense the high-quality of the ingredients and the healthy approach of not using processed foods! The staff was very friendly, they helped out with everything, gave us tips on where to eat, what to visit, helped us rent a car, booked us a trip on a boat and overall provided excellent services so that our stay in Santorini would be amazing! You should better go to the restaurants that they suggest because Santorini can be tricky, you can easily be fooled into paying pricy meals at restaurants that are not worth it. Also, the resort is 2km away from Thira and very well connected to the main roads of the island. You should rent a car and you will be able to reach all the important attractions. Side comment - there was a very discreet cat that came to our door, we loved her and fed her. If you don't like pets, you will not be bothered by her. But it was definitely a plus to have such a loving cat waiting for us to come home and caress her!George. US, October 2020
We had such an amazing time, it was hard to leave. The villa (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & kitchen and living area) was beyond our expectation: stylish in the cave home spirit of the Island, super clean, well equipped and with a beautiful sea view and private pool. The main pool area is also lovely. But beyond the accommodation, the service was stellar: warm welcome, tips to explore the island, and excellent service altogether. Everyone goes out of their way to make your stay unique. Demetrius, the owner, also took the time to greet us. Thank you to everyone and especially Evi & Maria. I can only highly recommend it for anyone looking for a great time in Santorini.Dansira, Trip Advisor, September 2020
2nd time there and it only got better. Even in these strange COVID times Maria and the rest of the team were fantastic, arranging great restaurant bookings and there for anything we needed, sometimes even before we realised it.Hotels.com, September 2020
Desiterra is beautiful!!!! So so quiet and if you enjoy your privacy with really lovely views and your own pool, this is the place for you!! We stayed for 2 weeks and already we are looking forward to our next visit.
ALL of the staff really go out of their way to make your holiday very special, they will get you a table at the best places, just ask, nothing is impossible for the ladies on reception..
From the minute we stepped out of the taxi our experience was amazing... there is nothing that is too much trouble for any of the staff here. The accommodation is spotless and beautifully decorated throughout with everything you could wish for, the private pool was incredible. We had all our dinner reservations taxi services day trips organised by reception anything we needed was there. Would definitely recommend anyone who wants 5* accommodation with a 5* service it was a breath of fresh air not to be in the hustle and bustle but have beautiful peaceful surroundings will definitely be returning one day hopefully soon thank you for making our stay unforgettableEmily, UK, August 2020
Incredibly customer service, impeccably clean room & beautiful villa. Before we even arrived in Santorini, the customer service was second to none. Maria organised a taxi airport transfer which was super efficient and comfortable. Maria then proceeded to take care of us for the whole stay offering great advice for restaurants, bars, breakfast spots and places to visit as well as sorting transfers and organising reservations for day trips, restaurant bookings and taxi bookings. Nothing was too much to ask and she always had a big smile on her face making us feel super welcome and comfortable to ask for advice. Without Maria’s advice, our stay wouldn’t have been so special in Santorini. We used the gym on quite a few occasions too, which was very clean and although quite basic, perfect for doing maintenance workouts. The on site food was delicious. Recommend the pork and rice! The rom was kept super clean, and the two girls who looked after our room were so friendly and smiley and always went the extra mile. Thank you for such a wonderful two week stay. We want to come back already! Ana and TomTpaley11, Trip Advisor, August 2020
We came here on what was supposed to be our Honeymoon but due to COVID-19 our wedding has been postponed however we decided to go ahead with our Santorini trip. It was pure heaven!! An absolute dream to say the least, nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they waited on ya hand and foot! They worked by WhatsApp so anything we wanted booking or needed we simply messaged them and got an instant reply, it made our holiday completely stress free! Couldn’t recommend enough! Thankyou!Chloe, UK, August 2020
"First Class Service, Maria, Anna, Dimitris and the team were absolutely amazing. They organised day trips, breakfast, lunch and dinners for us. Anything we wanted they were happy to organise. The villas are very clean and our private pool was perfect on the hot summers day. We really enjoyed our stay at Desiterra all the staff were so welcoming and warm. I highly recommend desiterra for couples and families. Hope to go back there soon!"Heba, Australia, September 2018
"We had a great week at Desiterra. The villa is pretty and we'll arranged. Cleaning is very good, as well as the service for carrying your bags. The ladies at the front desk Ana and Maria are darlings and are very hospitable. as well as Dimitri! Desiterra makes you feel welcome and safe during your stay. The surrounding is beautifully maintained. We made a little friend 'Pipi', the Desiterra dog. such a cuty! If you can, get up early and see the sunrise over Desiterra it is the best!! […] It is a treat to just enjoy the sounds of nature!"NW, Amsterdam, August 2018
“the staff were so lovely and helpful, nothing was too much trouble they honestly couldnt do enough for us!! the villa was cleaned perfectly each day, nice pool and comfy unloungers, although the villa was in a more secluded area we liked that as it was very peaceful and still had a lovely sea view , the beach down the road is also lovely and the tavern does great food.”Amy, UK, August 2018
"Tranquility, Serenity and Privacy. Easy access to airport (10 mins), Thira (5 mins) and Oia (20 mins). For the quality of the villas with private pools and the excellent attentiveness of the owner and the team, this is excellent value for money."Ian, UK, July 2018
"Had a wonderful time. Would recommend to everyone. The villa was beautiful. Host was waiting for us to arrive and gave an overview of the complex as well as getting around in town. They ordered food for us from menus to aid in the translation. Could not put into words how beautiful this resort was. Amazing."Margaret, USA, July 2018
"An unparalleled overall experience! Amazing villa - unmatched design and quality in all aspects, in & out! Breathtaking sunrise view! A bed which would be envied by the most luxurious US hotels! Magnificent hosts and concierge! Well done!"Nick, GR, July 2018
"Simply amazing! My wife and I recently stayed at Desiterra Suites and Villas for the 2nd part of our honeymoon and we were amazed! This place is so well kept and the views are awesome. From the moment we arrived, we were immediately greeted by the staff, in which they took care of our luggage and offered us complimentary, delicious Greek wine. The owner is also a great, humble individual and made us feel so welcome. He took care of any requests we had and the staff gave us plenty of advice in regards to the best restaurants, views & shops in Santorini. They even called in reservations for us to get the best table at a cliff side restaurant with amazing views! The Villa we stayed in was also amazing. It was definitely more than big enough for 2 people, with 2 bathrooms, 2 king size beds, a kitchen, A/C, daily housekeeping and last but not least, the private pool that comes with the Villa. The view from the Villa was beautiful with the ocean straight ahead and the well kept landscaping. We would highly recommend Desiterra Suites and Villas for anyone visiting Santorini, especially newlyweds!"Matt, RI, July 2018
"Excellent. A piece of heaven away from all the crowds. The owners and staffs are super friendly. They welcome you with a bottle of local wine in your room. The Villa with private pool and lounge area are perfect combination for relaxation and tranquility. You can watch the sunrise and sunset right outside your villa. It is 15 minutes drive away from Fira. We are so glad that we didnt get a hotel on the hilltop tightly squeezed together."Salina, July 2018
"Thank you Desiterra 5 stars for sure! We loved the family friendly atmosphere from the moment you arrive from the Santorini airport, only a short drive away, you welcomed us with warmth and true caring. The beauty and clean, well-kept, and owner carefully overseeing all the details are important and 5 stars all the way. Desiterra staff and owner always went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed every moment. They ordered dinner for us, arranged breakfast to be delivered daily at various times to fit our active schedule and on the 4th surprised us with delicious bubbles, just to help us celebrate our 4th. I recommend Desiterra to everyone and will definitely come back every time in Santorini. Love the privacy, beautiful interior and exterior, the view is breathtaking and I watched the sunrise every single day! So relaxing, inspiring and total excellence. THANK YOU DESITERRA W E LOVE YOU"Tove, July 2018
"One of the most enjoyable places we have stayed in the world. The owners and staff are incredible, we were treated like family the entire stay. Our suite as well as the entire property is spotless and the private pool is crystal clear and refreshing. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable we found in Europe."Mike, USA, June 2018
"Fabulous. A much-overused description but one genuinely deserved by Desiterra. Desiterra is a small complex of suites and villas situated within a quiet valley close to the sea and not far from Thira. All of the properties have their own small pool and are very well designed to provide a large degree of privacy. They are fitted out to a very high standard and are truly luxurious. But the best thing of all about Desiterra is the management and staff. Dimitrius and his team ( with particular mention of Anna and Maria) couldn't do enough for us. They booked taxis and restaurants and even my haircut (which Dimitris personally drove me to). They were fantastic and clearly genuinely enjoyed looking after us. Probably the best holiday experience that we've have ever had. And we will definitely return.... soon!"Glyn, UK, June 2018
"What a place to be! The owner and his eloquent staff are so caring. My wife and I have been treated like Royalty since the moment we stepped in. From organizing Taxi rides and activities, to having our breakfast, lunch and dinner ordered. Dimitris' plans for the land will be extravagant, and you see the care and love that is taken care of the villas. I was surly happy to stay at such a beautiful location! What a place to be!"Josh, June 2018
"This place is simply amazing.... The staff is super friendly and helpful. The hotel looks even better in real life than the pictures, very very clean outside and inside.The villa was very pampering... the location is great, right in the middle of the island and a 5 minute ride to Fira(the capital). The PERFECT place to be in Santorini !!!"Amir, June 2018
"Excellent place to spend time in Santorini. After visiting crowded places in Fira and Oia, Desiterra is the best place to relax. Rooms are fully equipped with private pool, kitchenette, shower, bedroom and living room with veranda. Owner takes very good care of the guests."June 2018
"Very pleasant place. For those looking to visit and enjoy Santorini but in a peaceful and private place far from the crowds this is the perfect place. Kids highly enjoyed the swimming pool, you can order a nice breakfast delivered to your villa, beach nearby is very nice and quiet but with good services. Definitely recommend it."Val, USA, May 2018
