We spent two nights at Aris Caves in a a traditional cave room with caldera view. Our room was lovely, tastefully decorated and very clean with complementary drinks and food. The view of the caldera was stunning. The little balcony allowed us to have a very private Santorini experience. The common areas were also very nice, relaxing and with a... More

Our family stayed in the Patari room. The room was spotless and extremely well appointed. The beds were by far the most comfortable we had through our Greek travels. The view from our private patio with the cool down tub was just fantastic. Christina was very helpful with anything we asked for. We even mentioned to add a few chairs... More

It had a full bedroom, a living area with 2 places to sleep and a loft with 2 places to sleep. It also had a full kitchen and bathroom with 2 outside patios.... More

We stayed in Gonia room at Ari's Caves and it was beautiful. The room was exactly what we needed, beautiful touches to make it feel homely, a cake and wine on arrival and very clean. We had a small front porch with tables/chairs to eat breakfast every morning and another small terrace on top of our room with lounge chairs... More

We stayed at Aris Caves during our holidays in Santorini two weeks ago. The "Callisti" suite, where we stayed, was amazing! I don't know where to start from : the breathtaking view, the relaxing outdoor hot tub, the beautiful private terrace where we spent hours and hours relaxing on the comfortable sun beds. It was worth the 127 steps down... More
