The Vedema is my idea of perfection in hospitality. Upon arrival we were offered champagne, as we checked in, what a way to set the tone. While there were indeed a few issues with the stay it was nearly impossible to feel compelled to complain, since everything was resolved immediately, and with an incredibly friendly attitude. We were upgraded significantly due to our dual Gold SPG status to an incredible separate villa called “delta” which was more like a small apartment than a room. It had its own private Jacuzzi (though we never got it to work properly) I didn’t care, it was pretty hot anyway, and the lovely patio was so nice for enjoying a glass of wine, and some bakery delights we picked up on the way back from the resorts private area of the beach. There’s a complimentary shuttle providing rides to the beach, the airport, towns of Fira and Oia that seemed to be at the beck and call of the guests schedule more than on a rigid predetermined schedule. The breakfast overlooking the beautiful pool was the perfect way to begin a relaxing day, with plenty of choices and very casual and friendly service. While it seemed you were in a luxury resort, where service was totally “five-star” you never felt like it was snobbish or snooty, it was the purest definition of casual luxury. We arrived very late at night, and wanted a simple light bite to eat before retiring after our LONG journey from Los Angeles, the restaurant didn’t care, we weren’t ordering a full meal, or even that we in our “business casual” attire (not shorts and flip flops mind you, but not dressy). The food was creative, very delicious, and the ambiance was beautiful. The setting of this resort is in an ancient town near and beautiful church, not in one of the busy tourist centers, which for my idea of relaxing is perfect. It’s only a 15 minute ride to Fira where you can get your fill of “tourism” and then leave back to your oasis at the Vedema. There is only one place I will stay on Santorini or for that matter recommend to my closest friends.
