Welcome to Yayaki Spetses

Our home on Spetses Island.

Welcome to our home on Spetses Island

Greece and Spetses, have always had a special place in our hearts. After living fast-paced lives in London and Paris with our daughter and our cat, we chose to reconnect with the magical Mediterranean region, inherited from our families’ origins.

We both share a similar vision of hospitality. More than great service. Where each traveller is looked after as family. This is a unique concept on the island of Spetses, halfway between a luxury boutique hotel and a family guest house.

Spetses, the authentic Island

Located off the coast of the Peloponnese region, in the Saronic gulf, Spetses is a small island in the Myrtoan Sea.
Fifteen years ago, when travelling with our family for holidays, we chose it for its quiet atmosphere, its simplicity, authenticity and natural beauties, embellished all year round by the changing seasons.

What is unique about the island is that it is pedestrian-friendly: a few cars, no big road, no touring bus and no airport around. Most travel here is by foot, horse-carriage, bikes, small motorbikes or quad bikes etc. This is disconnection.

The Hotel & Rooms

This Spetsiotis-style house was one of the first hotels on the island. With fifteen bedrooms, Yayaki offers the perfect location, in a quiet street, five minutes walk away from both the village Dapia, and the nearest beach, Agios Mama.

The vision of Yayaki’s original island home atmosphere has been translated thanks to wonderful Greek and French talents: Bruno and Sandrine from Bru&San for the brand identity, Mr. Kappos and his team, founder of Novicon for the renovations, Maison Hand Studio for the interior design. 

The Yayaki Suite

Discover the Yayaki Suite, one of the two “Experience Suites” of Yayaki Spetses, and also the most luxurious ones.
The Yayaki Suite is located on the first floor of the detached house and offers an extra sense of intimacy, thanks to its private entrance, through its own terrace overseeing the pool and the garden. As well as a more spacious cocoon on the island, you will also enjoy extra amenities and services such as the option to have breakfast served on your terrace !

The Panorama Suite

Discover the Panorama Suite, one of the two “Experience Suites” of Yayaki Spetses, and also the most luxurious ones.
The Panorama Suite is located on the first floor of the main house and is the only one with a spacious private terrace… and a Sea view! The terrace is the perfect spot for travelers who love spending more time oudoors than inside the room. You will enjoy relaxing moments in the lounge area and the unique facilities such as hammock and outdoor shower.

The Myrtoan Suite

The Myrtoan Suite is Yayaki’s biggest room. With a spacious lounge and two bedrooms, it is perfect for families or groups of friends. It can accommodate up to 4 people. It is located on the ground floor of the main house, and offers a direct view over the pool and the garden

Deluxe Balcony Rooms

The Deluxe Balcony rooms (2 people) are located in the main house, on the second floor and offer a beautiful view of the pool. The traditional balconies facing the garden, jasmin trees and colourful bougainvillea add an extra romantic touch.

Deluxe & Family Rooms

The Deluxe (2 people) and Deluxe Family (3 people) rooms at Yayaki each have a unique personality, like in a big family home. The rooms’ interiors are inspired by the magical energies of the island and its nature, offering a modern, simple and authentic vibe. With large, double-glazed windows facing the pool, you will enjoy the view with its colourful bougainvillea.

We absolutely loved Yayaki and Spetses! We stayed for two weeks early August and had a fantastic time with our two teenage girls and our friends from Paris (we were 9 in total, so a handful!). Everything was perfect: the stylish and large rooms, the beautiful pool, the delicious and varied breakfast, the location which was not too far from either the old port or Dapia, and last but not least the perfect hosts, Hannah and Karl (who surprisingly understood my odd humor...). We also loved the island. Fantastic beaches, great restaurants, fun bars/clubs, etc. Hydra, 30 minutes away, is definitely worth a day trip as well. We will definitely have to return!

Tanto Karl como Hanna unos encantos. El hotel precioso, cómodo, limpio, trato familiar. Somos tres españoles que no hablábamos inglés, y Hanna se esforzó muchísimo por entendernos, un encanto. Volveremos sin duda.

We spent 5 wonderful days at Yayaki. The hotel, which has just opened, is superbly decorated, super style, yet quiet and pleasant design. We were in two rooms, each with a slightly different character, a different color pallette, and both were pleasant, comfortable and meticulous down to the last detail. The owners of the hotel are a charming, professional, and inspiring couple . They took care of every request or matter, were available and made us feel like we were in great hands. The island is sweet and pleasant, and I look forward to my next vacation there.

Dans un cadre enchanteur, rénové récemment avec goût et attention, Hannah et Karl vous accueillent comme si vous faisiez partie de leur famille. Ils font tout pour que chaque moment ne vous inspire qu’une chose: revenir le plus vite possible. A bientôt. 💙🇬🇷

Karl & his wife welcomed us in their amazing hotel. It’s a peaceful sanctuary. The rooms are really nice and comfortable. The pool and bar area are cozy as well. All the staff is super nice. The breakfast with local products was great. Definitely recommend with friends or couples.

Pas assez de mots pour décrire cet hôtel entièrement rénové où nous avons séjourné 3 nuits inoubliables. Karl et Hannah sont aux petits soins pour nous faire passer un séjour hors du temps. A cela s'ajoute beauté de l'île qui nous donne un sentiment de pure liberté. La combinaison des deux est un vrai délice. Le séjour dans cet hôtel fut un vrai bonheur où l'on s'y sent bien et l'on a envie de revenir.

The best place to stay in Spetses with a great atmosphere and unique treatment from the owners Karl, Hannah and their staff. Everything was fabulous, from the room and Cocomat beds till the decoration and the healthy breakfast that was a surprise for the taste. My wife had Yoga lessons during the weekend, I had one of the best massage that I ever had, my daughter felt the place like home. Everything was great . For sure we will be back soon. Thank you Yayaki 😘
