“place I suggest for a relaxing vacation in Santorini”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

the location is amazing and you can enjoy the sunset from one of the best view of the island.
rooms are clean and breakfast is very well prepared.
a scooter rental is needed in order to reach fira for nice restourants/shops or the south for beaches.
a note to the staff..very kind and a special thanks to the guy managing the bar.

as you know, there was a lack of electricity for about 3 days and the hotel reacted with professional understanding our situation.

What a gem of a find! The Avaton is a fabulous boutique hotel, wonderfully intimate and serene with only a handful of rooms, stunning views and a level of personal service rarely encountered. Laura is the manageress and nothing was too much trouble, from recommending activities, restaurants, making all the arrangements and even sourcing a birthday card for my fiancé, when she forgot to get one for my big day! Costas is in charge of all things gastronomic, and seamlessly manages to serve every room with breakfast and dinner if you wish. They and the rest of the small team made us feel so special, it was truly perfect.

Room Tip: Honeymoon or Avaton suites are worth splashing out for!

I think we found heaven when we happened upon this spectacular hotel and spa. We only had two nights here and where lucky to be up-graded to the Avaton suite. Oh my, so gorgeous apart from the spectacular view the suite was very spacious with sitting area a desk area an amazing bathroom area right next to your bed. Oh, yes and on the lovely balcony where watching sun disappear into horizon there is a spa. The furnishings are so very stylish and calming. The breakfast was was lovely bought to your suite and enjoyed on the balcony so very fresh and a wonderful way to start your day in Santorini. Laura the manager she was the most charming lady so helpful and caring. Also Kosta and the lovely Zoe in the spa just was another beautiful person. I wish we could stay longer but all amazing experiences can't last forever but they do last in your book of life memories. Thank you it was perfect

I cannot find enough adjectives to describe just how wonderful this hotel is and how much we enjoyed our recent stay. Despite the fact that our friends were sadly unable to join us through illness at home, we enjoyed one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever experienced. Five days had as much effect as two weeks. The location. The staff. The food. The care, love and enthusiasm for simply making guests feel so welcome was extremely special. From breakfast - fresh, appetising, and lovingly served - to restaurant suggestions, rooms and the small, yet inviting pool, everything was perfect. And no, we were not honeymooners (far from it), yet still we experienced service and pampering. The spa is great, the ambience idyllic and the design of the hotel simple but stylish. We will certainly return. Thank you Laura, Kostas and the rest of the staff for your wonderful hospitality.

just returned from a week long stay at the Avaton Resort & Spa, what can I say a week was not long enough. It is exactly as the website depicts. I have never stayed in such a relaxing hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Laura & Costas.
AC is on all day so the room is comfortably, every nook and cranny is spotlessly clean. The infinity pool is terrific if a trifle cool, but once your in is really refreshing!
Breakfast was fantastic as much and as varied as you could want, served in your room complete with cava. Set you up for the day!!
Cooling breeze meant you were comfortable all day, a lot of the properties coser to Thira were in a suffocatingly hot location.
Take sturdy footwear and you can walk to Oia(2hrs) and Thira(25mins)...then catch the bus back.
A couple of handy supermarkets...try Atlantis wine from Santorini, very nice.
The Imerovigli Tavern is about a 15min walk and overlooks the Caldera with outdoor seating and a fantastic view, excellent Souvlaki and great wine by the jug ...its a little piece of heaven!

Room Tip: they are all good

My wife and i spent 5 magical nights at Avaton Resort & Spa for part of our honeymoon. The moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed. The staff did everything to make our stay wonderful. The service was great and impeccable and made you feel like royals.
The room was clean, spacious, luxurious and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and tasty and brought to you every morning at the time you request. Also the meals were tasty and nice and brought to you or you could go to the dining area which was either in the cave pool turn dining area or sit outside and eat and enjoy the beautiful sunset.
Avaton is the best place for either honeymoons, anniversaries, romantic getaway or if you want to unwind relax and get away from things to enjoy the view, sun, peace and tranquility.
I cant speak enough of this place. Its heaven on earth. But i will finish off by talking about the view and the sunset that looks over the Caldera and the Aegean. The view and sunset is breathtaking and beautiful and oozes romance and i shared it with the most beautiful woman in the world, my wife.
We thank Avaton and the staff especially Laura and Marcos for a wonderful and unforgettable stay.
We will definately be coming back.

We were not guests at the hotel, so I think it was somewhat unusual that we got to eat the resort's restaurant. However, it wasn’t a busy night so the staff graciously let us crash in.

Our sunset meal was one of those meals I will remember the rest of my life. The view of the sunset over Oia was stunning. The food was gourmet and creative. The wine list was local and intriguing. And the service was absolutely fantastic. Christophe, our waiter, was a young man with a lot of personality. He seemed to genuinely care about us and paid attention, noticing little things. Like the fact that I had neglected to bring a sweater so he appeared with a blanket to wrap around my shoulders. Now that’s service!

What a meal.
