“Memorable and Amazing stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

There's so many wonderful things to say about this property besides the great location. My wife and I just had a mini honeymoon on Santorini and we stayed in the Olympic Villa with the honeymoon special. From the start the owner and the staff were very welcoming and helpful, they work hard to ensure that everything you need is there. The room/villa was amazing and well kept with a lovely private pool and a nice variety of amenities as well, I wish I could rent out the room to stay forever! The best part about our room was that it was located near the top of the steps that lead down to Amoudi Bay, which has the best view of the awesome Oia Sunset, from our balcony/patio area my wife and I enjoyed the complimentary bottle of champagne together as we watched the sunset!
Included in our package was a wine tasting tour and a sunset sailing tour, the sunset sailing tour is a MUST, theres so much to say about it, it is the one of the best things you can do on the island and a great and memorable experience! The wine tour was also good too, we learned a lot and ended up coming home with multiple wine bottles!
Thanks to the owner for making this such a great stay, I'll be sending my parents here for an anniversary in the future!

A weekend escape to Santorini seemed like a great idea, the only thing we were not prepared to see was an absolute bliss. The island is so charming, people we met were so friendly and the hotel just stunning. I came with my friend so we took the suite no 2 with separate loft bed. I liked the space, decor and perfect service.
However 2 days were not enough to see everything. We took a cruise for 5 hours ..and took billions of photos of the sunset..so amazing and decided to spend our last day in oia. This small city is vibrant, colorful and busy during the days and so relaxing during the evenings. There was a hip bar in oia, great music and cocktails and a lot of couples. Back to our suite, we over used our jacuzzi on the balcony...
The sensation of the place was a bit too romantic, sure it is great for honeymooners but for friends in vacation was a bit overwhelming.
I took all of Daniela's recommendations for restaurants and activities and she never failed to deliver the absolute best. All at the hotel were great, delicious breakfast at the bar.....breakfast with the best existing view in the world
I will return next time with husband,lucky him!

Room Tip: All rooms at a spake are great,too bad I didn't check the oia castle as well

Aspaki is perfect, everything new, our superior suite had very large and comfortable indoor space and a very private balcony.We came for a week in Santorini and enjoying every second of it. We met the owner and we had a great exchange of impressions, Daniele, Sam and Anna were so wonderful with us, we couldn't ask for more
When asked about my feedback and possible suggestions I couldn't think of anything to improve, we had everything and we wish to sincerely recommend this hotel for those seeking only the best in their travels.

We had a marvelous week at Art Maisons Aqua Suite. Cannot imagine a more perfect holiday than we had with Art Maisons.

The most excellent view from the balcony in Santorini and it was also surprising that we could not realize all the hundreds of tourist coming to see the sunset just above us...

The greek breakfast at the balcony, the excellent and pleasant service, you just cannot hope for more... And you don't need a travel agency when you come here. They took care of our car rental, table reservations (with our preferences), boat tickets and sight recommendations.

We have traveled a lot and this is definitely something we'll never forget.

I stayed at Oia Castle in the Sunset Honeymoon Suite (Sunset5), and my expectations were absolutely exceeded. Firstly, as with some other reviewers, I held the tag of "5 star" property on a touristy Greek Island with some trepidation, but the from the moment of arrival all fears were allayed.

The level of service went far beyond any you can expect staying at a similarly priced suite in a luxury 5 star hotel. Information about the room, and nearby points of interest were explained with great detail, and our luggage was carried halfway through Oia by the bellboy.

The cave house had a large shower with great views which doubled as a sauna, and was generally very nicely furnished, but the highlight of Sunset5 was clearly the balcony. Huge, with a semi-private lounge area that could be closed off with curtains, it is without doubt the single best/most comfortable position to watch sunset on Santorini.

The food was fantastic - breakfast is ordered the previous day (made fresh prior to 9am first service), with a wide selection of both traditional Greek and the usual cereals etc. Make sure to try the sweet grape in Santorini wine with Yogurt - apparently you cannot buy this (and we tried looking without success) so we asked for extra to bring back to Australia!

Room service/dinner menu is actually from the restaurant next door (a fantastic establishment that's always busy given its great view), and is delivered directly to your room or balcony. (Order at around 7.45 for delivery at sunset)

If you have any doubts about spending 700+ euros a night here, bear in mind that in terms of value, it is a bargain. Would recommend this property with no hesitation.

Room Tip: Undisputed best location to watch the sunset on the whole island is Sunset5 (sunset honeymoon suite...

Everything about our stay at Art Maison was simply exceptional.
The transfer was on time, the check in was made in our suite when Mr Yordan explained in just enough time without being tiring all the necessary information about the suite, breakfast menu and various attractions around the hotel.
Aqua is very spacious, minimal and chique with an amazing cave pool for private moments and a cozy small outdoor Spa on our balcony to enjoy the sunset . Breakfast was fresh and delicious every morning, well noon, because we took our time to wake up.
We spend a couple of 5 days in Santorini and I strongly recommend it for those seeking a great Greek experience, spectacular views and best service. We had the convenience of room service and laundry service at very good prices which we appreciated very much.
Thank you all for making our stay an exceptional experience. Hope to be back again!!!!!!

Oia Castle has one of the best sunset views in Oia (or Santorini for that matter). The hotel is located just under the old Oia castle ruins, which is at the most Northern tip of the island. Therefore, it has one of the best view of the sunset. While everyone else is scrambling for a good spot to watch the sunset, you are able to enjoy the view from your private terrace or Jacuzzi while sipping the welcome drinks provided by the hotel.

The hotel staff is very attentive, helpful and extremely nice. Jordan, the receptionist, was very very hopeful with all our needs.

However, there are a few things that you need to know before booking the hotel. There is about a 5-10 min walk from the hotel to the closest parking lot (the post office), and about a 20 min walk from the Oia bus station. This means that you will want to make sure you arrange the logistics in advance so the hotel staff can greet you and help you carrying your luggage up and down the stairs to the hotel.

We stayed at the Marine Suite and weren't able to get an upgrade because all the other rooms have guests during our stay. Also, the rooms of the Oia castle itself is considered to have more "history" So the decor doesn't have the nice modern new feel to it, but it is still sufficient. The selection for breakfast is ok.
