The photos speak for themselves, this is a paradise. From our own outdoor spa bath overlooking the stunning village we enjoyed divine sunsets. And when hungry the chef himself would deliver his lovingly made creations to our private dining table with the very same view. The rest of the time you can just be naked in total privacy. I couldn't fault this place if I tried. DIVINE.

We stayed in the Cook’s House for 4 nights this past September and absolutely loved it! The layout and size of the room was perfect for us as one could relax downstairs or on the patio while the other one dozed off on the cozy loft. The view through the loft window to the sea below is amazing. We would lie in bed and look at the seagulls fly by as well as the sunset cruise boats go back and forth below us. The service was just perfect and we could not have asked for anything more on our honeymoon! Loella, Maria and Katerina took care of us and would greet us at the reception level providing us with information on restaurants and beaches when needed. All the staff were extremely polite and were not intrusive on our privacy in any way. It was a dream come true honeymoon and we are so happy we chose the right hotel and destination!

The Ikies hotel is the most lovely, romantic and special hotel - perfect for couples. We stayed in the Winemaker's room - complete with steam room and private plunge pool on the private (and large) patio overlooking the most beautiful view. Breakfast is to die for and the staff are simply out of this world. Room service is a must for lunch or snacks - the Greek salad and trio of dips and pita...drool worthy and not pricey. Local Santorini wine is a must. This hotel is a real gem in one of the most special places on earth.

We stayed in the Artisan's Room, which is the second to the leftmost room on the premise. The view of the caldera was amazing from the room; sunset is not to be missed especially when champagne is served. Breakfast is per-ordered the night before, and nicely laid out in the balcony the next morning. You can order anything you want and as much as you like, it's something that we looked forward to every morning. The Artisan's Room is a bit on the smaller side, but it does spelled "traditional" in a good way. The only down side of this room is that the people in the next room have to trespass your balcony to get in and out, so you do lose a little privacy there. The private jacuzzi is spectacular, the staff was very helpful, all and all, it was a wondering experience.

A few practical details, they offer pick-up/drop-off from airport; staff will help you to rent cars and make dinner reservations. They also offer in-room massages, free breakfast in the morning and free champagne / snack in the afternoon.

My husband and I stayed at Ikies for our honeymoon at the end of September and absolutely loved it. We started out in the Carpenter's Suite (one of the two honeymoon suites), which was really spectacular. It had an amazing view, was incredibly spacious and had a nice private jacuzzi. Upon our arrival, we were greated with complimentary local wine (which was delicious) and some local snacks. Each morning we had the delicious breakfast, and the two mornings in the Carpenter's Suite we also received complimentary champagne. After two nights in the Carpenter's, we switched over to the Boatman's studio. It was smaller than the Carpenter's suite, but we actually liked it a bit better. The jacuzzi there was right up against the edge of the balcony, so you could sit there and feel like you were right on the edge of the caldera, which was amazing. The staff at Ikies was super friendly and helpful. Even before we got there, Katerina and Maria were helping us arrange transportation from the airport and helped set up excursions. Once we arrived they answered all of our questions and were really helpful in making reservations and suggesting restaurants and activities. The rooms were super clean and very comfortable. Ikies is just on the outskirts of Oia, so it was pleasantly removed from the hustle and bustle, but a short and easy walk into town. Ikies was definitely a little pricey, but 100% worth the money! I would absolutely recommend it to other couples and honeymooners!

Also, because I know I like to know what there is to do near a hotel, I'll give a few recommendations. We went on the SAFOWI wine tour with Phenix our first day and it was fun and informative, totally recommend it. We also did the sunsert catamaran tour, which was one of the highlights of our trip as we got to watch the sunset swimming in the middle of the ocean. As for restaurants, our two stand out favorites were 1800 and Floga (the tomato bruschetta things and the almond coated fried feta here were delicious). Skala was also good. Many people rave about Ambrosia and, while it was good, we felt it was overrated. We also took a walk down to Ammoudi Bay and ate lunch at the Sunset cafe down there. My husband and I split one of the fresh caught fish for lunch, and it was probably the best fish we had ever eaten. Just be prepared for a long walk (or donkey ride) back up those steps once you get down there!
