“Incredible Villa for a very -relatively- low price- Perfect Deal for Luxury Holidays”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

We visited Thermes for a two nights stay during the beginnong of Augist 2010. We stayed in Aphrodite Villa, the biggest and most luxurious villa of the Hotel. Santorini used to be an expensive island and private villas used to be really expensive too. We booked Aphrodite for a medium price -in relation to what we expected for a realtively luxurious villa- regarding price standards for such properties in this island.
However, Villa itself amazed us. I know that it is the biggest villa of the Hotel, so I can't talk for the other rooms and I will focus just on this.
The pool was about 60 sqm -10x6 approximately-, the outdoor space was enormous, the wooden sundecks -considering their size and quality- fit to a hotel's -and not a villa's- pool. View is amazing -believe me, I was astonished as I discovered that sunset from Thermes is much better than sunset from Oia- as you can have an undisturbed panoramic view from the villa to the whole gulf. You can see Kamenes Islands, Thirasia and the whole Santorini itself.
Regarding indoor, owners have taken care for every small detail. Indoor space is vast, can accomodate 2 families, bathrooms are luxurious and really big, decoration style is trendy and cosy and every equpment and material was of high quality (jacuzzi was also really intense and modern!). The Villa includes free wi-fi, free laptop, two TVs, cd-player, sauna, a fridge, a small kitchen, vertical air-condition -which is much more healthy than on roof air-condition- in every room, many telephones, plenty of towels of any size and amenities and some flatware. Downstairs bathroom has a jacuzzi, upstairs bathroom a shower-hydromassage. Decor is based on white wood and is characterised by a minimalistic look. There is a small but very charming loft. Furthermore, veranda upstairs is really big and secluded and enjoys an amazing view -even more amazing than the view from downstairs-.
Regarding breakfast, it was free and really fine. You can order almost everything included in the catalogue. Room-service was also very good; they changed any bath amenities used and all towels, they washed dishes etc. None of the staff ever disturbed us. On the contrary they were discreet, helpful and friendly.
Generally speaking, Aphrodite Villa is one of the best properties of the island. It really is a hidden gem. When we showed our photos to our friends, they couldn't believe us that these were pictures from our room. Especially regarding the pool and outdoor thay believed that these were pictures of the hotel! And this is not totally wrong. When you rent Aphrodite Villa, it is like you rent a small hotel for yourself. Aphrodite Villa seems totally suitable for hosting weddings as it can accomodate outdoor dining for nearly 60-80 persons -so you can understand how it looks like if you stay just with your partner!- and it includes an outdoor circular bar.
Regarding cost/benefit factor, I believe it is a really hot deal. We could have spent twice the money and rent a villa just half luxurious and big as Aphrodite. A room of the same quality in another Santorini hotel, could cost you about 3,000 euros per night and believe me, it would be full booked! I have already stayed in top hotels of Europe and Greece and personally I believe that Aphrodite has been the best value for money case. Me and my partner could not discover any hidden flaw justifying such price.
Finally, some people advise you to avoid Thermes, as Megalochori is in the middle of nowhere etc. This is not correct at all. First, Megalochori is really a village located in the inside part of island. Vendema resort is located in the centre of Megalochori and has no direct access to coastal view. However, Thermes is located in the coastal side of the village. Actually, it is located on the top of a rock standing before the sea. Second, the distance between Thermes and Santorini's port Athinios is 4-5 minutes driving. Third, Santorini is really a small island. The biggest distance cannot surpass 35 minutes driving -from Akrotiri to Oia-. The distance between Thermes and Fira does not surpass 10-12 minutes driving. Fourth, in comparison to pay double price for a room -not of the same quality- in Fira or Oia, why don't you rent a car for 35 euros per day? Even if you are really tired, driving 10 minutes for food or swimming is nothing! If you cannot drive, hiring a taxi will relatively cost you much less than paying the price-penalty for a near beach room!

So, you spend money for a 5 star junior/exec. suite and you take a really big and luxurious villa with the outdoor space and pool of a hotel plus an amazing view and 5 star amenities and service.

Nevertheless, I hope that my comments will not tempt Thermes to rise prices or reduce quality and amenities!

I passed one night at the Thermes this summer with my partner and we felt like being in heaven! The structure is fantatic, perfect to grant calm and privacy with the opportunity to share it with your beloved (the villa where we stay could welcome 6 people!!!). The service was top as expected. Costantino, the hotel manager, made everything possible for us and the breakfast in the morning was delicious!
not only for honey moon, even if the sunset there is breathless, but also for few friends that want to share a wonderful villa with a service of a luxury hotel.

My partner and I recently stayed at Thermes Luxury Villas to celebrate our recent engagement. From the moment we arrived our every need and want was met, and the staff at Thermes were very attentive, but aware of our privacy at the same time. We stayed in the Dimitra villa and it was beautiful. Our days typically started with an amazing breakfast, served to use on our terrace, over looking the caldera. In the evenings, we went to some lovely tavernas in Megalachori's square. The little town was so pretty. We loved Thermes so much, we are planning to get married there next year. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed in Dimitra Villa in June. There were 4 of us, ( two couples) and the accomodation was ideal. Very spacious, modern and comfortable. Great pool, and fantastic view!
Konstantinos and staff looked after us superbly. Breakfast was fantastic, and as another reviewer remarked, Megalahori has some lovely restaurants.
Peace, tranquility and luxury. Unbeatable combination.

We spent 4 days at Thermes during our 2 weeks on the beautiful Island of Santorini. We had the pleasure of Persiphone Villa - 3 bedrooms, fabulous private pool and everything you could ever wish for, from champagne breakfast by the pool to dinner watching the sunset.

The small village of Megalachori is a hidden gem with some wonderful restaurants and the most idyllic setting.

Most definitely worth a visit !

These villas are just lovely, situated about 10 minutes from Fira by car overlooking the caldera. The service was top-notch, catering to our every need. Breakfast is ordered the night before and delivered to your villa every morning. Our villa slept 6, three bedrooms (one double in the loft, one king (master), one with 2 twins together). It had 2 baths (one w/a shower and one w/a jacuzzi). It was very comfortable with our family of 4 young adult children, my husband & myself. There are 4 TV's, free WiFi and a laptop provided for your use. Every villa has it's own private pool facing the caldera. The villa has a tiny but very functional kitchen w/stocked bar (like the hotels). You do need a car to get around, but parking was easy in Fira in June. Megalochori has a couple of great restaurants too. There is a spiral staircase up to one of the bedrooms and the bath w/shower. I did speak to the manager about possibly adding a small cafe on the premises next to their kitchen. They have plenty of land to add more amenities. It would be a great asset. We also received a nice bottle of champagne. Overall, whether it's a quiet getaway or a family vacation, I think you'll be very impressed with these villas.

Just finishing up our honey moon with 2 magical days in these private villas and words cannot describe how magical this place is really about. the views are amazing and the service is second to none
a bottle of champagne was presented to us, whilst lazying around the pool just to apologise the noise from the workman completing the villa next door was a nice touch that you don't experience that often any more. Breakfast delivered to your door each morning , at a time that suits you , and a menu that has EVERYTHING was so special

In its first year of operation these new villas with private pool are fitted out tremendously.
3 flat screen tvs, laptop with internet, jacuzzi, illy coffee machine satellite TV with good movie channels sports etc
This has been the most amazing way to finish a honeymoon , treated like a king!!!
