Have you ever stayed at a hotel that left you speechless?
Back in 2010 when my hubby and I planned our dream honeymoon, we decided to splurge (just a little) on one hotel throughout the entire trip so that way we’d have more spending cash for other things like excursions, souvenirs and dining experiences.
First we had to decide on our splurge location…and that was an easy choice – the stunning Greek island of Santorini.
Now the hard part – choosing a place to stay among the many cliff hugging, magical, white washed hotels that just oozed charm.
After going back and forth, we decided on this gem:Hotel Keti is located in Fira Town, Capital of Santorini
The “Cavehouse Suite” was our first choice, but it was already booked, so we stayed in a “Double Superior” room which worked our perfectly! At 120 euros a night, it was a splurge to us, but compared to the neighboring hotels…it was quite a bargain!The room was quaint, simple & modern. The bathroom was spacious with a jacuzzi tub.
But here’s the real reason we chose this hotel:Stunning views right outside our door! Private terrace time Doorway to paradise! Talk about grand entrance!
View of Fira from our terrace. Vino + Gorgeous Views = Happy Jen!
Sure, you have to walk down almost 100 winding cobblestone steps to reach the hotel, but with views like this…it’s so worth it! (And if you need a little assistance, a porter is available to carry your bags…for 20 euros.)Cruise ships in the harbor.
The front desk personnel were extremely friendly & very helpful with directions, excursions & suggestions on things to do.We even had a welcoming committee (who was very cute!)
Little did we know that on our last night in Santorini was the annual fireworks display commemorating the eruption of the volcano.
All we had to do was step outside our door to the best seats in the house, kick back & be awed by the vibrant, beautiful display in the distance.Fireworks then continued over Fira lighting up the town.
Honeymooning in Santorini and staying at Hotel Keti was definitely the highlight of the trip. If you ever consider traveling to Santorini, I wholeheartedly recommend getting swept away by this magical jewel!
