Aris Caves is so perfect, it seems almost imaginary. My wife and I stayed in the newest, most secluded, and popular room - and we literally could not take our eyes off the view. Every morning we woke to the bluest sea we had ever seen, and sat sipping coffee on our private terrace on a cliff overhanging - and staring out into - this paradise. Every night, after watching the sun set, we returned to our room, and relaxed in our private outdoor jacuzzi. There really is nothing we can say negative about Aris Caves. It was a dream ... vacation, and we cannot wait until we return. We cannot recommend Aris Caves highly enough! read hotel review
  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    Aris Caves does not have a restaurant or bar of "its own." However, it is literally steps away from ten to fifteen great eateries.

    6.0

    Christina, the owner and our hostess, could not have been more hospitable. She volunteers as the point-person for literally everything you could or would want to do on the island. For instance, weeks before we even arrived, she contacted us to greet us and give us travel advice -- and offered to set up a ride for us from the port (quite a distance away) into Oia. On the day we arrived (at 1:00AM), Christina and the hotel's porter were waiting to greet us personally, take our bags, and make us feel at home. By the time we left, we felt like Christina and her wonderful staff were new friends! The room was newly renovated, perfectly appointed and always incredibly clean. Every day, no matter how early or late we left the room, Christina and her staff would make sure it was spotless by the time we came back. Moreover, it was stocked with nice goodies - milk, cake and a bottle of fresh olive oil from Christina's family's farm.

    As I have already referenced, we had a wonderful, private jacuzzi on our private terrace -- a hot tub that looked out onto the unbelievable sea.

  • Location
    6.0

    The hotel is on Oia's main pedestrian strip, and perfectly situated among a host of restaurants and shops. The most popular vista for viewing the island's unbelievable sunsets is a five-minute walk away, as is virtually everything you would want to do.

  • Room
    6.0

    The room was newly renovated, very spacious, and perfectly appointed. We had wonderful air conditioning, and a very modern kitchenette. The bed was very comfortable. As I have indicated, the outdoor, private terrace (and jacuzzi) could not have been better. Oddly, we especially enjoyed the bathroom -- it was carved into a cave, had comfortable water, and a porthole window looked out onto the sea (so we could literally see the sea from every room).

    Years ago, pumice-stone miners found caves on the island of Santorini which archaeologists identified as ancient housings and antique lodgings. Lateron, a local craftsman manufactured pack-saddles and held his cattle there.
