Greece › Santorini › Kardashians in Santorini

Celestia Grand in Santorini
Celestia Grand in Santorini circa 2013, when the Kardashians visited. You can see the 5 original villas with private pools in the foreground: Sapphire (where the Kardashians stayed), Artemis, Aphrodite, Iantha, Erotas. There are now 2 more villas, the Junior Villa and the Superior Honeymoon Villa. Behind the villas is Volcano View Hotel, now a sister hotel to Celestia Grand.
The Kardashians stayed at Celestia Grand (back when it was part of neighboring Volcano View Hotel) in Santorini during their vacation in Greece. It’s an awesome luxury villa collection, located south of Fira (about a 30 minute walk into town or an easy ride with a taxi or their complimentary shuttle). Views are incredible. A perfect spot for a honeymoon or romantic getaway, though some people might find it a little too far from the shops, restaurants, and nightlife of Fira. Read our full review of Celestia Grand here.
The Sapphire Villa at Celestia Grand

The Sapphire Villa is the top-tier villa at Celestia Grand and offers the best sunset views on the property.
Another angle on the private pool and picture-perfect sunset view.

The main entrance opens up to an elegant living room.
Downstairs you’ll find the master bedroom with direct access to the pool.
The master bathroom offers a marble, dual sink and a large shower. The steps lead to a cave-style, swim-out bath with hydromassage jets.

The Villas at Celestia Grand
The hotel has 6 more villas onsite, 7 in total. One of the newer villas that opened after the Kardashians’ visit is the Superior Honeymoon Villa, which offers spectacular sunset caldera views, an infinity pool, and a grand terrace.
The other newer villa is the Junior Villa, which has a heated, jetted plunge pool rather than a swimming pool.
The Junior Villa is the smallest onsite, but it still offers plenty of space and the same luxury amenities as the larger villas.

Where is the best place to stay in Santorini
Celestia Grand is wonderful but a little isolated and without much within walking distance. These are my favorite places to stay in Santorini and these are my favorite hotels.
Where did the Kardashians stay in Mykonos?
The Kardashians went to Santorini and Mykonos during their summer vacation in 2013. When in Mykonos they stayed at My Mykonos Retreat located near Ornos Beach and about a 10 minute drive to Mykonos Town.
