Sometimes it really does all come down to location. Trends in travel come and go, but Greece’s volcanic islands have been a hot destination for just about as long as humans have had the ability to move from place to place — there’s something about balmy climes, dramatic rocky vistas, and deep azure seas that never goes out of style.
It would take a peculiar sort of anti-talent for hospitality to manage to create a bad hotel in this sort of environment — which is not to say it hasn’t been done many times over. And conversely a well-done hotel, in these surroundings, results in an experience that’s pretty near spectacular.
Small is key, and Astarte is certainly that; nine suites is about the dividing line between small hotel and large guest house, where intimate hasn’t yet crossed over into solitary. A steep staircase shepherds guests down the hillside from the road, and provides a bit of extra incentive to stay put. Inside they’re impressive, all with views of the volcano and the caldera, with some well-chosen luxuries like jacuzzis with Swarovski crystals overhead.
Services and facilities, similarly, are minimal but well-executed: an infinity pool with a view that reminds you what the point of infinity pools is, a cafe and lounge (also with a view), and shuttle service to the airport or the coast. Just a comfortable room, and nothing to spoil the scenery; around here, there’s no need to ask for anything more.
Please note: Astarte Suites is open seasonally from April through October. Children under 13 years of age are not permitted at the hotel.
