Every detail was perfect! Definitely a bucket list! The indoor/outdoor cave jacuzzi was one of a kind! Loved the whole cave house, can’t rave enough about it!

Bucket list room for a bucket list trip!
This was probably one of the most beautiful rooms I've stayed in. I did a lot of research looking for the perfect place in Santorini and this checked every box at much less of a cost of some of the bigger hotels. The lava cave pool is incredible and was one of our favourite parts! Katerina went above and beyond to answer our questions and make our trip successful. It was even my birthday and we came home to find balloons, flowers, and cake - it was really thoughtful. The communication from the beginning was flawless. Yes, there is a pathway that goes right in front, but it was never that busy because it's mostly only people who are staying in that particular area. It was about a 2 minute walk up to the main part of Oia. Overall I would highly recommend if you can book the Lavacave - you won't be disappointed!

Wow! Everything about the accommodation is amazing, from the view to the impeccable service. It's everything you can imagine about Santorini and more. Clean rooms serviced everyday, complimentary wine and snacks, very well situated except for the path leading to the room but you will have a porter to carry your luggages, and its unavoidable being in Santorini. Warm and nice hot tub over looking the Caldera. Highly recommended!! 5 stars!!

Spacious with an amazing view!
We absolutely loved our room. The view was incredible! The service was amazing. We were celebrating a birthday and they provided us with a cake and candles. There was also a bell boy that carried our bags during check in and check out. The location was perfect. I highly recommend this place and hope to stay here again in the future!
