Ikies - Traditional Houses
Ranked #6 of 56 Hotels in Oia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2012

So this place is pricey, but if you are going to splurge this is the way to go. We stayed in the artisans house and the room was simple but beautiful. Unlike many high end luxury resorts, which cost you a fortune and then milk you further for every amenity like wifi or minibar, this place provides you with it all. You get a stocked minibar upon arrival, wifi with no issues, and the service staff at your every request with a smile. One night we even wanted to heat up our hot tub as it had become cool and one of the workers came down from her own residence (offsite) at midnight to come turn on the heater, and still did so with a smile. The views are absolutely unbelieveable, we spent almost our entire time here, unlike most other hotels where you basically go to just sleep. The breakfast they serve you is top notch. You fill out a menu card upon checkin as to what you want them to bring and what time you want them to bring it, and you get to eat this amazing breakfast while sitting on the edge of the caldera at the tables on your patio. In addition, the room service menu was phenomenal, both quality and size. We made the mistake of ordering the meze platter, bruschetta and a salad, it was so much food we couldnt come close to finishing it! And all still at a decent price. I have absolutley no complaints about this place and would recommend it to anyone wanting to come on a romantic vacation.

We researched accommodation on Santorini with Trip Advisor and to be honest, we tried to get into a few other places before trying Ikies. I am so happy we were unsuccessful elsewhere! The views and quality of accommodation are tops, but what really makes this a great choice for holiday makers is the wonderful atmosphere and service of Ikies. We actually never really ventured out of our villa, even for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was incredible - and served to your private villa. We had a 2 bedroom unit (Collector's House) which was a great way to manage a 5 person family (with teenagers). The villa was perfect for a large family - lots of space and TV/Movies for those not wanting to be out in the sun mid-day. This was one of our best holiday experiences and everyone was sad to leave. Louella and the others in reception were so friendly, helpful and even arranged for us to to use hotel facilities after checkout (as our flight was late in the day). Would go back!

Room Tip: Collector's room with 2 bedrooms is great for a large family!

If you have ever dreamed about how romantic and scenic a terrace overlooking the Agean would be, you will pinch yourself when you stay at Ikies. We were here for 4 nights and really enjoyed every second of it. Every morning we woke up to freshly squeezed orange juice, Greek yogurt, and more on our terrace. Every night we zoned out on the terrace watching an amazing sunset with a glass of Sigalas wine and fresh fruit. Louella and the other people who work at Ikies are professionals. They know how to treat you like royalty. Believe me. You will love every minute at Ikies and will want to come back again and again.

Room Tip: There is not a bad room in the hotel.

I booked this hotel because it was number 1 in Oia on tripadvisor. Everything about this property is a reason for them to be number 1. The service is one of the best I have ever received on my travels. Big thumbs up to Katerina, Maria and Louella from the reception. They are all extremely intelligent and delightful, and they really make your stay personable. I normally like to stay private on my vacations but often I found myself in the reception area talking to them! You girls certainly get a 12 out of 10 from me! (And hope you guys have gone to Candonies by now)

The location is wonderful. It's about 5 mins walk from the town center of Oia. I really liked this as it was away from the hustle and bustle and noises from the restaurants etc, very peaceful at night time. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated and some rooms have the jaccuzi outside which is a very nice touch!

If you are looking for a hotel in Santorini, I can tell you without a doubt that this property will not disappoint, and after your trip you will be writing a great review about this property like I am now!

PS: If you haven't been to santorini before then I certainly recommend going on a catamaran cruise. If you like privacy go for the private charter! My wife who gets seasick told me the cruise was one of the highlights of her holiday in fact!

Breath-taking view of the caldera. Wonderfully attentive staff (Louella, Katarina and others); charming hotel! We spent 7 days in the Artisan's Room at Ikies Traditional Houses. The property is gorgeous with simply stunning views! Who needs to walk into town for the sunset? See it from your balcony while sipping a piña colada or mojito. Wonderful continental breakfasts on your balcony overlooking the caldera. Anything you want can be arranged. Our rental car was arranged from the office and brought right to the hotel. For a small fee we had our laundry done. One afternoon we were surprised with ice-cream sundaes that were brought to our room compliments of the house. Loved our own personal hot tub outside our door. Bathroom was great. You are a 10 minute walk to Oia but we wanted some exercise and appreciated being away from the bustle. Yes this place is pricey but you're worth it aren't you? Thank you Ikies!

Room Tip: The Artisan room is big and has its own hot tub. Smaller rooms are available.

Honestly nothing more can be added to the past reviews. This is the place you have been looking for! The boatman room is the perfect room and has the most private balcony and is very popular so book early. We loved the easy 10 minute walk into Oia, so beautiful. We just wanted to thank the staff again for their excellence and for making our stay so special xx

This hotel is wonderful... I can't fault it in any way... Thank you soooo much ikies for a wonderful stay in your boatman room which is superb. This hotel is about a 5-10min lovely walk into the town, its far enough away that there are no crowds and to be honest you really dont feel like leaving the room much at all as everything you need is there or they can arrange it for you... I had a lovely massage that was arranged in our room for me.. I can't speak highly of Ikies. It is wonderful. If in Oia you have to stay here it is a must..... YOu must get the spa on the balcony it is really worth it... arrived at mynkonos for the next part of our honeymoon and wish i was back at Oia ikies... Thanks for everything guys especially arranging all the hotel, taxis for us it is much appreciated....

Room Tip: Choose the boatmans house more affordable and with a balcony spa.. Totally worth it...
