This was our 4th visit to Santorini and second time to stay at Aris Caves. It feels like our home away from home! Christina, the new owner, is most hospitable and has made many amazing upgrades to the property since our last visit three years ago. The property is small and quaint, with only 7 absolutely beautiful cave dwellings, each... More

We went to Oia in the second week of May, perfect weather, less tourists. We arrived in Oia , somebody from Aris Caves was waiting for us to carry our luggages. On top of the stairs going down to the hotel, we just stopped , it was such an amazing view. We went down very slowly, to take it all... More

We arrived at this hotel after 2 days of a disappointing stay in Imerovigli and ready to go back to Mykonos. The minute we arrived at Aris Caves and saw our room, we fell in love with Santorini. Our room had a large deck with a small jacuzzi pool overlooking the sea and the caldera. The view was incredible! The... More

The Aris Caves are a wonderful place to stay. The hotel alone is wonderful but the experience is made infinitely better by the staff at the hotel. Christina is a lovely host and truly made our stay memorable. The location is stunning, situated in the side of the cliff in Oia, in close proximity to fine shopping, dining and sights... More

Just faultless. Aris Caves is located in the most stunning setting. The rooms are very comfortable, freshly decorated, and had everything needed. If you are looking for impersonal, ultra modern bland 5* don't stay here! However if you want to experience charming individual cottage kinda rooms with the most stunning views, then we can't recommend this enough. Christina, the owner... More

We arrived Oia and Aris Caves, after five great days in Fira. Theodore, the hotel representative, met us at the parking lot to accompany us to the hotel. Despite the fact that we wanted to help him carry our luggage, he insisted to take both our two “modest” suitcases down the steps. With one 20 kg suitcase on his shoulder... 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 via stairs 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 across the Santorini Caldera, the volcano Nea Kameni and the deep blue Aegean Sea.Spread over 4 levels are 7 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 next to the entrance of Aris Caves are open to all guests and offer probably some of the best views of 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 guests with mobiliy issues. ... more   less
