The Aressana Spa Hotel and Suites, in the town of Fira, is a fabulously grand and beautiful location for any period of stay in Santorini, Greece. It offers pleasant surroundings, comfort, and complete tranquillity for a peaceful and relaxing stay.
The hotel Spa is situated near in the centre of the towns bustling restaurants and bars, but because of the location and design, it cleverly creates an ingenious space of complete calm, quietness and peace, but once you step outdoors you can easy return to the bustle and activity of Santorini. It is well placed to access major parts of the town by easy stroll.
The interior design matches the wonderful buildings and architecture of the surrounding landscape, where beautiful white washed expansive spaces create a soothing atmosphere.
On arrival, you can see the reception space with an Ancient Greek Goddess adorning the walls behind the desks greeting the visitor. As you walk through the hotel towards you room, there are spacious curves and verandas which you can meander through towards your room, passing the white beautiful decor and green plants, and vibrant blue pool areas.
The room suite that we stayed in was marvellously spacious, great mini bar, wardrobe, beautiful bathroom (with amazing bath scents and cosmetics designed by the hotel) and it’s own private swimming pool just outside the glass screen door.
The breakfast was served from 8-10 every morning and after being shown your seat in either the outside or indoors area, you could help yourself to the buffet after some soothing coffee or juice.
The Greek yoghurt and fresh fruits taste nothing like the fruits you find in the supermarket, shops, and restaurants in the UK. The Greek yoghurt was rich and full of flavour, and the fruits so beautifully fresh, bright, juicy and tasty. In the UK, I am used to tasting the rich and flavoursome Kiwi fruits, vibrant oranges, plums, apricots, dates, delicious sun kissed tomatoes, olives, and more! The meats were rich, tasty and Moorish! In Santorini my mouth came alive with fresh flavour!
Then we come to the features and amenities of the Hotel Spa –just wow. Many of the aromatic and skin care products on offer have been created and designed by the hotel. They offer a range of services including facials, massages, aromatherapy and more.
Take a look at this fantastic Spa area we were able to enjoy:
We were made to feel very much at home due to the natural hospitality and friendliness of the Greek people working in the hotel. Evangelia (Owner of the hotel) and Anna (Manager) both took special time out of their day to chat to us and make sure we were having a pleasant stay and enjoying our meal.
The cocktail Anna introduced us to (designed by the bar staff) was amazing! We felt we had a connection with the people in the restaurant and hotel.
Overall, we are very glad that stayed in Aressana Spa Hotel & Suites. It was a perfect experience. What are you waiting for? Book now by visiting their website here.
