My partner and i stayed here for four nights in August. We stayed in the Gonia room. The hotel has stunning views over the caldera - the pictures do not do it justice. All rooms had a lovely private terrace. Our room was spotlessly clean and well kept. I loved the flowers and vivid colours. Christa and christina were so... More

In July we stayed at Aris Caves - this was our third time of staying at the Caves with Christa as our host. As you can imagine, to us it is a spectacular place that we wanted to return to, to once again experience a traditional cave house. The first view of Aris Caves as we came through the top... More

We had a week at Aris caves and it was honestly one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed! The location, views, hospitality and gorgeous weather made it an unforgettable holiday. This hotel is great value for money set amongst the super luxury hotels which cost twice as much but in our opinion, would not be any better.... More

Hello, we came for a 4 days in Santorini, in Aris Caves. It was wonderful, never had such a beautiful view of the caldera. No need to walk all around Oia, we preferred to stay on the terrace. The apartment was really nice, and with all needed for a family (kitchen and even air conditioning). It was the first time... More

Christa and Christina made our stay a truly restful and memorable stay. Their tips on where to eat, what to see, best vantage for enjoying the spectacular sunset were excellent. Our family of 4 stayed at Xenia. This apartment gave us a beautiful view of the sea, and because the apartment was constructed into the hill, our apartment was very... More

We had the most memorable holiday staying in Aris Caves. The Caves are unique and quaint and a great change from the regular hotel rooms. Our Apartment PATARI had breathtaking views of the caldera as did the common terrace. Christina was the perfect host and was very helpful. She gave us all the information about Santorini the day we arrived... More

We stayed at Aris Caves for 4 days and had a fantastic time. My two daughters would have been happy to never leave the property as they had so much fun playing with the friendly cats and exploring!

My husband and I went there for our honeymoon and we're definitely left with beautiful, lasting memories. We walked everywhere in Oia and Fira, and came to the conclusion that the caldera view from Aris Caves is truly the best. You can spend many hours just looking at the caldera while sipping on a glass of wine. We wanted to... More

Stayed a week at Aris Caves in July, Two couples in the Patari suite. Beautiful property, great views and warm hospitality. Christina was a very nice host and was very helpful. We spent many hours simply staring at the Caldera with a Mythos in our hands. Miss it already. I will say: prepare to do some steps to get to... More

We stayed at Aris Caves in the Gonia room for 3 nights in late May 2014. The Gonia studio has a private terrace with outstanding caldera views – the perfect place to enjoy the beverage of your choice each evening before a late dinner in Oia. The Gonia room itself is small, but is clean, cozy and has everything you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Literally, like an eagle's nest hanging in the cliff of the island, Aris Caves is located only a few minutes down from the center of the lovely village of Oia. Yet the placing of the houses is configured like an amphitheatre, tranquil and ideal to relax, to dream and to enjoy the breathtaking view over the Santorini Caldera, the volcano Nea Kameni and the deep blue Aegean Sea.Spread over 4 levels are 6 self-catering, fully equipped and separate studios, apartments and a suite, each with kitchenette, shower/toilet, air conditioning, internet and its own terrace. The large terrace in the center and the sun terrace at the bottom of Aris Caves are open to all guests and offer probably one of the best views in Oia. Due to the cliff side location, stairs and low perimeter walls of the property, we recommend children to be at least 8 years of age and unfortunately cannot recommend our hotel to handicapped people. ... more   less
