Personal service starts at the airport. Our Sani-driver Theodorius felt perfectly the amount of info along the road we wanted, he left us our privacy when desired, he adviced and lectured us when asked. It is, anyway to us, not usual that the general manager, Kevin, welcomes you at arrival. Well at Sani, they do. But first we passed Thanos, the gatekeeper :). Always a smile, always a friendly hello, each time whe past him during our stay. Sani is all about personal approach, making you feel like family. About the 2 room suite we can be short, just beautifull, spacious, well kept by maintanance. The terrasse is large, the view breathtaking. Luxery in its purest form. Ofcourse this comes at a cost. But it is well worth the money especially because of the service. It would be injust to pick out one person without mentioning the rest. All , from breakfast , over lunch , thru dinner, staff is here to please you. If you are pleased that the manager welcomes you at arrival???? Well, he is there every morning at breakfast ,not just to say hey, but to help the staff , cleaning plates etc... Well the 3 managers are, Kevin, Kostos and ... sorry forgot3° name. Another person I do not remember the name of, is the lady that served us twice at Vosporos Grill for dinner. I remember she's 27 , knows all about wine/food pairing. I could go on and on about the staff. They are just fantastic. And yes.... when we left, Kevin was there to say goodbye.

We loved the fact that every detail at the Sani Asterias has been consciously designed to make sure guests have the most relaxing stay possible. This is not just a hotel, it is an experience that you should not miss. While it may have similar grounds to other hotels, it is a cut above the rest because the staff work hard to make it an exceptional place to be.

I have nothing but praise for all the staff, led by the General Manager Kevin Kainz, who seems to be on hand to make sure the whole hotel runs as smoothly as a luxury Swiss watch. We were made to feel that our enjoyment of our holiday was top priority, and this really showed in the level of service we received.

Our suite was beautifully decorated, just as in the photos on the Sani website. All amenities around the hotel were beautifully cared for, right down to the flower beds.

The breakfasts are amazing (you have to taste the French toast!).

The service at the beach was superb. We loved that it never felt crowded and that sunbeds were always available. The whole resort makes you feel that you have just arrived at your perfect holiday.

Every restaurant within the resort was amazing and the quality of the food was some of the best I have ever had.

While the Sani Resort is fantastic, it requires a little effort to see more of the local area if that interests you and the reception team can arrange taxis. We also hired a car for a day to explore more of Halkidiki.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for a relaxing, comfortable and extremely civilised break. All in all, a top class holiday and we are already considering a return visit.

Just spent a week at the Sani Asteria Suites and cannot praise this resort enough. Our suite was incredible, comfortable, clean and very luxurious....really lovely..!! We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis and the breakfast was totally delicious and the waitress service was very good, friendly and very efficient, in fact they can’t do enough for you. We ate out every evening in restaurants around the harbour which were sometimes a bit pricey but every meal we had was thoroughly enjoyed. As a bonus we were so lucky with the weather so got the opportunity to spend lots of time on the gorgeous sandy beach..!! Would love to come back again as we had such a great time.

As you can see from all reviews, everybody says the same thing, it is an incredible resort.
Its elegant, minimalist, luxury design, with exceptional staff makes the same effect on all guests.
Waiters, receptionists, housekeeping, all of them are always smiling, very sincere and they treat you like it is your 10th time in the place and try to satisfy your needs even before you think. General Manager Kevin Kainz is taking care of every guest individually. He is like Samantha from Bewitched, whenever you need help, he appears suddenly behind you with a smiling face.
You feel like you are in sanctuary in Asia. There is very good energy everywhere and that is what you expect from vacation. Great for families with kids. I went Sani to relax, to stay away my stressful work life and honestly I was afraid there would be too many kids and sound around but the kids were amazing, no crying ,only their great laughs around which makes the good energy elevated.
Our room was great with stunning sunset view. If you are couple, don’t leave the room, just order a champagne and watch sunset on relaxing sunbeds. There is also Nespresso machine and Ronnefeldt Tea in the room.
The breakfast at Water Restaurant was very delicious, although there is buffet, you can order waffles, pancakes, eggs the way you want. I ordered 2 yolks first morning and I didn’t need to specify other days since they remember my order in next days. The dessert buffet was die for which made me gain couple pounds ,but still no regrets
Overall you need to live to understand.
I stayed many luxury hotels all around the world some were with butler service but this was very different experience. My congrats to owners who created such an amazing place with great energy and simple elegance. Also bravo to Human Recourses and managers, recruiting such good staff and creating the butterfly effect.

I have stayed at many 5 Star Hotels and in most cases the stays have been great, However the Sani Asterias is above a 5 Star Hotel and trumps them all. "It is Second to none"! It is so fantastic that you never want to leave. Luxury and Superb Customer Service at unmatchable levels. Our 11 day stay will forever be remembered.

Now, let me share some of the details.

The Sani Asteria is a luxury boutique hotel with 57 Suites, with it's own private beach within the Beautiful Sani Resort. I have never experienced a beach being closer to a Hotel then at the Sani Asterias. We would get up every morning and go to the beach to either jog or just put the feet in the beautiful Aegean sea. It has an absolutely amazing location.

The Hotel Suites are all very large with either direct ocean or marina view. The suite we stayed in was a ocean front, absolutely breathtaking. We will forever remember the sunsets. The Suites are in first class shape, each has a terrace and they have all the amenities of top notch 5 star hotels. They are beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The bathroom is very large and and includes a wonderful walk in shower and a Jacuzzi soaking tub that is huge. Everything from towels, robes to the bathroom products provided was first class. They even had bath salt. Each day they had two turndown services, a wonderful sweet surprise in the afternoon and then the nightly turndown service. The rooms also have a NESPRESSO Machine. The suites and grounds are extremely well cared for. The Housekeeping and Groundskeeping staff that take care of the rooms and grounds are phenomenal!

The Breakfast was the best we have ever experienced. It was above a 6 star level. Taste, Quality and Quantity of Breakfast Exceptional. It was a combination of Buffet and ala carte for warm items (different type of eggs, waffles, pancakes). They had a high quality of fresh products that included meats, fish, fruit, bread, sweets, etc. It is such a high class that you will be wow'd. Your drinks (Coffee and Tea) are specially prepared for you to your liking. There are freshly pressed juices. The buffet was always stocked and tables were immediately cleared. Overall, everyone that worked in the breakfast area was extremely nice and friendly. A heartful thanks to Asterias, Kostas, Karolina, and Christina for making our daily breakfast an unforgettable experience.

The Front Desk and Concierge Team assisted us with many different things and never disappointed us. Especially Maria who checked us in and always looked after us. You really made our vacation stay the best we ever had in all our years. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I also want to mention Athina who assisted us in arranging our Mount Athos cruise. "Job well done"

The staff at the beach where first class. Each morning they had the sunbeds and beach ready for all the guests. The beach and water was the cleanest and most beautiful I ever experienced. A thank you to Konstantin and Emmanuel for pampering us at the beach.

Finally, I want to acknowledge the Hotel Manager Kevin Kainz. He is the Best that I have seen in Hotel Management. He was there the day we arrived greeting us and he always took time to look after ALL of his guests. What really stood out and you could sense is the Awesome team that Mr. Kainz has formed and is leading.

We were totally impressed with our Hotel stay. There were so many nice surprises that I didn't mention because I really feel you should experience this wonderful place and see what a great Hotel/Resort this is.

Thank You Sani Asterias for the most wonderful vacation! We will be back!!!!!!

Some additional tidbits of information.
If you book a 5 night or more stay you receive free transfers from the international airport of Thessaloniki. If you fly to Thessaloniki and use the free transfers you will not need a rental car. The Sani resort where the Sani Asterias is located has everything. There are 4 other Hotels, over 20 Restaurants in the resort, stores, a marina and miles of beaches. If you have questions, just ask.
