What a beautiful, calm hotel perched on the cliffs of Oia!
Partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in June after a few days in Mykonos to unwind. This is a stunning spot and the hotel is really beautiful with individuality in each of the unique cave rooms. The staff were particularly warm and welcoming, without being over intrusive. Valentino and Nicolas were always on hand for drinks, food and luggage when needed, and reception was always happy to make any arrangements. The lovely owners, a husband and wife team, have spent a long time creating something special and it shows. The relaxed feel of the place encourages the small number of guests to unwind and let life slow down. With only a handful of rooms, and a recent opening, It was a real pleasure to have stayed here.
Rooms are simply Appointed but with and emphasis on quality throughout. Very comfortable beds, assortments of soft fluffy towels and well stocked minibars with a small kitchenette in each. Rooms have polished concrete floors and polished plaster walls and bathroom, all of which adds to the cave feeling, but with a definite quality and spotless cleanliness.
The property is accessed from the main pedestrian street of Oia by a pathway that leads to a couple of hotels. On the property each room is then accessed by interconnecting steps leading to each small terrace. Not for those with diced mobility but then again, Oia is entirely hanging from a cliff so not the best choice unless you can comfortably manage lots of steps.
Greek and healthy option breakfasts were served on our terrace each morning, and we enjoyed the lovely fresh Greek yoghurt, which partner particularly enjoyed, cheese, fruit and backed pastries with one of the most stunning caldera views on Santorin.
There is a small pool for cooling down which is much needed after walking down and up to Amoudi, or just enjoying the Santorin sun. Perched on the side of cliffs, Oia probably isn't a sun worshiper's paradise... But you can hit the beaches if you really want that.
