Hotel Review- Aris Caves, Santorini Greece
Aris Caves is a luxury hotel in the Picturesque Oia, Santorini Greece, with views across the Santorini Caldera and the Agean Sea that will take your breath away. Beautifully styled, spacious and luxurious cave suites, with lovely homely touches and friendly old fashioned service.
Aris Caves had exceptional communication before we arrived and during our stay. They arranged for a driver to collect us from the airport and take us to the hotel and then carried all our bags down to our room, I think just under 100 steps in the searing heat. With 2 kids in tow this would have been an impossible feat for us.
Christina, the live-in owner was very welcoming of our young family, informative on places to go and things to do and more then willing to help with our requests. She was able to arrange transportation and activities for us also.
There is a limited number of suites available which means its quiet and private. We stayed in the FOURNOS APARTMENT which had plenty of room for our family of 4. there was a fully equipped kitchenette, dining table, a queen bed and 2 singles and a gorgeous bathroom within the cave. The suite also has its own private terrace so you could put the kids to bed and have a glass of wine and take in the view. I loved the collection of books around the apartment and my son loved the visiting cats which you will see everywhere in Santorini.
Facilities and Activities within Hotel
The apartment we booked did not have a pool but other suite options in this hotel did . I had envisioned myself spending lots of time in the pool at our accommodation and didn't realise until we arrived that we had booked a room without one. Christine was generous enough for us to use one of the private spas when one of the suites was doing change over. I think if your going to stay in Santorini, try and get a room with a pool or spa.
Aris Caves have all the expected facilities in luxury accommodation including air conditioning, which is great on the hot days and nights, free wireless internet, safe, fully equipped kitchenette with fridge, bath amenities, beach towels and daily cleaning. The cleaners were lovely and did full laundry for us.
They have a beautiful communal terrace which is also a great spot to sit and enjoy the view.
Breakfast and restaurants within the hotel
Unfortunately there is no room service or hotel restaurant within Aris Caves. However, all suites have a fully equipped kitchen and restaurants are only a short walk away so we did not find this to be a problem. And you can arrange daily bread and groceries at an extra charge. We received a lovely welcome basket with some goodies upon arrival.
Aris Caves is located on the cliffside of Oia within 100 metres of the centre of town where there is lots of restaurants and shops.
