Amazing stay at Celestia Grand this past week/weekend! Niko (the manager of the hotel) went above and beyond to ensure that we felt absolutely at home and it definitely worked. Not only were the rooms spotless and beautiful but each one comes with it’s own hot tub and/or pool with views of the caldera that cannot be beat. A massive And tasty breakfast was served every morning to our patio and it was incredible and the staff was extremely accommodating to my dietary restrictions (I am a vegan). Niko was very helpful with booking our tours around the island and he was sure to accommodate to our needs at all times (he is always available to call/text). We will definitely be staying here when we return to Santorini and will be recommending these wonderful villas to our friends !

I stayed in Celestia Grand villa with a friend of mine for 2 nights and it was absolutely beautiful! The manager Niko explained us the history of the island and was there for every need we had! The villa it self is amazing with private swimming pool and jacuzzi facing the sea and volcano view. The stuff (Spyros, the cleaning ladies) were always around in case we needed anything. Breakfast was prepared especially for what you like to eat with many options and served by the pool. I would definitely recommend to stay at Celestia Grand if you are searching for something extraordinary, peaceful and calm.

We stayed at the Celestia Grand for 5 nights in late July, and it is probably the best place we have ever stayed (and we travel a lot). The Villa was very private, spacious and luxurious...and the private pool was amazing! Breakfast was served to us each morning by the pool, which allowed us to take in the incredible views. The service we got from Nico was absolutely outstanding, he looked after us from the time we arrived and organised everything - from dinner reservations, tours, boat cruise, taxis etc. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back!

We were at Celestia Grand for our honeymoon and we can say that we were not disappointed! The honeymoon suite is fabulous, the terrasse is huge and filled with great spots to sit and enjoy the breathtaking view on the sea! Pool, jacuzzi, outside bed and a magnificent table to eat breakfast or diner watching the sunset, every moment is magical.
Niko the manager is very kind and thoughtful, always caring of our needs.
Due to covid, the restaurant was closed at this time but there were delivery service from several restaurants in the city so it all worked fine. Breakfast was served in our room however, and it was delicious.
This is truly the best and most beautiful place we have ever stayed at ever.
Thank you very much for everything and we are definitely coming back one day!

The Celestia Grand is the most beautiful place we’ve ever stayed! The Aphrodite Villa was gorgeous, spotless and spacious enough for my family of five adults. We loved the huge private veranda with large private pool, hot tub and breakfast area (and the breakfasts…incredible!!) with breathtaking Caldera views and stunning Santorini sunsets. But the best part is Niko, the Manager/Concierge. He put together an amazing itinerary that included natural hot springs, historic ruins, Greek cooking class, wonderful boutique winery tasting, fantastic private boat trip and great restaurant recommendations. And for my daughter’s birthday he set up beautiful candles and Persecco around our pool and arranged a small fireworks display! The level of service that he provides and demands from his staff was beyond! If there’s a problem, Niko solves it. If you want it, Niko makes it happen. He’s a gem! Thank you Niko for making this trip so special and one we will never forget!

I used Trip Advisor to try and find the very best place to stay in Santorini and decided on the Celestia Grand based off of the perfect reviews even though trip advisor currently rates it as #3. I am extremely happy I did as I managed to see the other top places and they really don’t compare! We travelled as a family with our kids and the Grandparents and stayed for a full week! The villas are simply beautiful with amazing views. The food was incredible, with an on-site chef that cooked amazing food. The meat platters were one of our favorites and we had breakfast every morning set out for us, I highly recommend the Greek style omelette! For us, the star of the show was Nico! He really took care of us and we did everything he recommended and it all turned out perfectly. My father in law is suffering stage 4 cancer and Nico looked after him when we went on excursions that he didn’t feel up to. When we went to different places they knew we were coming cause Nico had always called ahead. He made sure we were taken care of at every meal and I am quite sure that there was not a point in our trip that he was not thinking of us and making sure we were having a good time. The staff at the Celestia Grand works hard as well. One thing I really liked is tips are not expected every time you get room service or your bags transferred, you can simply leave the gratuity at the end, which is nice and ensures everyone gets taken care of. If you are looking for the BEST place to stay in Santorini it is the Celestia Grand. Trip advisors algorithm is off by a long shot! If you stay here do the boat trips that he recommends and the beach he recommends. The seaside restaurant at the beach had amazing food as well! Thanks again, Nico, Alex, Bobby, and staff!

We had booked at Petit Palace but due to lack of customers we were moved here for our last two nights. Having had a bad overall experience from the fact we were moved without notice and a run down broken hotel at Petit, this really was a trip saving event.

The villa was immaculate and modern, it was well maintained and a stark contrast to the previous hotel.

Staff at both were friendly but the manager here was simply fantastic. Having traveled for years we noted to each other that he was the most perfect host you could ask for.

We could find no fault in this stay or the facilities.

I would unreservedly recommend booking here, the prices are high but the outcome will be positive. Pool and jacuzzi heated and fab. Breakfast was lovely and served at the villa, views stunning, bed very comfortable.

I wish the hotel group had just moved us here from day one, would have saved us hassle and made our experience superb.

We just returned from a 2 week trip to Greece and our stay at Celestia Grand certainly was the highlight. We stayed in the Ianthi Villa, which suited our family of 4 perfectly. The views here are incredible; the sun sets directly over the volcano ahead of us. I recommend dinner at the neighboring hotel (volcano view) on Tuesday night for music and sunset. Breakfast was phenomenal. Niko, the concierge, is just as fantastic as other reviews claim. He helped us with lots of last minute planning, including dinner reservations and private tours and no request or need was left unmet.

We have stayed at many luxury hotels in our years of travel and this is definitely one we will return to with excitement!

Celestia Grand villas are the most beautiful, romantic, and private accommodation in Santorini.

Not only is the place gorgeous, the service is impeccable. Thank you to Niko for being an excellent 24/7 concierge who took time to give us an orientation of the complex on Day One, arrange an amazing itinerary for us with tips and tricks of the island, make reservations for us at lovely restaurants with the best views and genuinely check-in with us everyday to see how we were doing.

The views are unlike anything we’ve seen before: Truly breathtaking views of the caldera. We stayed at Erotas villa and LOVED it.

The food is a chef’s kiss. Thank you to the chefs and servers who brought us warm breakfast, fresh fruit and drinks via a banquet style meal everyday. We had a lovely spread and dessert every morning and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to start the day.

The villa itself gives you access to your own little home: all private balcony, patio, pool, jacuzzi, two bathrooms, an indoor jet pool, and more. Truly a luxury experience that is also comfy, cozy, and elegant.

We will never forget our honeymoon here in Santorini at Celestia Grand. Thank you for making our honeymoon an experience we’ll never forget, Niko and team! Santorini has our hearts.

Thank you very much!

With utmost gratitude,
Dynahlee and Joseph

Villa inside look much nicer than on the website,definitely the best hotel/villa in whole Santorini.
Breakfast every morning,was amazing,A LOT OF CHOICE
And of course STAFF not 5 star I will give 10 if I could.
Nikki was organising all for us booking in the best restaurant(always the best table)
Private yacht tour etc

For Nikko nothing is the problem.
Wish to stay longer but..$$$ will definitely come back soon
In the mean time this signs $$$ are worth for sure!!!
P.S thank you very much Nikko for your hospitality

Sorry for the long delay ... not near the town but they organise all transport for you as you need it ... to be honest I think to stay outside slightly and go in is a better experience than be in the centre as it gets v v busy in town and can I imagine be a little over bearing. The Celestia Grand really is a fab place.

It's ok, just let us know what day you are arriving and you can park up on the street if our little parking is full. You should find us easily if you use your google maps. Myconos should be ok for a day or two
