Beautiful hotel in a gorgeous location
Aris Caves is situated in Oia, in my opinion the most beautiful part of Santorini. Its exactly what I expected. The hotel is gorgeous, beautifully decorated in white and blue throughout, and right in the centre of Oia. Once in your hotel you wouldn't know its in the centre as most rooms have a sea view and you don't get any passing tourists. Christina the owner is super kind and friendly, as are all the locals. We had great service, and we were lucky enough to find some fantastic cafes and restaurants around the hotel. I'd definitely revisit Aris Caves next year.

Postcard perfect.
Aris Caves was by far the most beautiful and unique place I’ve ever stayed. The staff were fantastic and we are so grateful to the lovely lady who was there in place of her daughter. Nothing was too much trouble. The views are like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The caves are very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. You do need a relatively good level of fitness as there are many steps up and down. I would highly recommend Aris Caves yo anyone visiting Santorini

Phenomenal Stay in Oia
Christina, the owner, greeted us upon arrival. She arranged transportation to and from the airport for us (a small fee). Our room was incredible - clean and modern with the perfect balance of Santorini touches. The bed was comfortable and the water pressure was plentiful. The view from our room was stunning and we enjoyed having our own personal hot tub to relax in at night. Christina provided us with a small basket of baked goods, from her sister's local bakery, and espresso pods for the espresso machine in our room. They offer laundry service for a small fee and we greatly appreciated having clean clothes (especially after a week of travel throughout Europe). The room had a ceiling fan as well as AC and the kitchenette was helpful when we didn't feel like eating out. Within walking distance of all the main shops and restaurants in Oia. Christina's hospitality and thoughtful touches went above and beyond. We will definitely return to Aris Caves!

You are spoil for choice of hotels in Santorini but Aris Caves is not only better than any 5 star rated hotels. Good location n Christina also has a heart of gold too. I was really touch by her very very kind gesture towards my husband. I my lost of words to describe her great personality. U will never never make a wrong decision to stay in Aris Caves believe me and also the wonderful complementary cookies n cake made by her sister for a start. There r just too many good things about Christina and Aris Caves. and I can’t thank u enough. From Margaret Singapore

Aris Caves, Fournos Apartment, Oia - May 2019
We stayed in the Fournos apartment and absolutely loved it! It was a 'cave' style apartment which was really clean inside and was well maintained. The apartment was cleaned daily and was spotless, it also came with nice amenities such as an excellent filter coffee machine, sweet treats (cakes, muffins, biscuits upon arrival) and good quality bath products. The views from the apartment were phenomenal and we certainly were not disappointed! We read many reviews about Oia being too busy and full of tourists, however, we stayed at Aris Caves in May 2019 and although it did get fairly busy during the day and towards sunset time, it was only busy on the main street and not near the apartment. The apartments are located in a very central location on a few minutes walk away from the main street in Oia, yet its very private and you feel you have your own space and peace when you want it. The owner, Christina, was also super friendly and helpful and she really made our stay at Aris Caves that much more special. When we landed at the airport, we had arranged for a taxi transfer to the hotel, however, as our flight was delayed, the taxi did not turn up. We called Christina and she sorted out a taxi right away which took us straight to Aris Caves. We really enjoyed our stay at Aris Caves and have nothing but positive things to say about the apartment, the service from all the staff and especially the owner Christina. We would recommend Aris Caves to anyone!

The perfect honeymoon spot!
Aris Caves is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The location is perfect and the studio (Folia) is so clean and pretty, equipped with everything you need. Christina is a fabulous host and gave us restaurant recommendations that were amazing and booked transfers for us! I can't wait to come back and also recommend this place to anyone who is going to Santorini.

Perfect Aris Caves owned by the lovely Christina
Christina welcomed us on arrival and gave us lots of local information. We were supplied with tea, coffee, milk and even a bottle of wine and a chocolate cake as a welcome treat. Our apartment was spotless and in a perfect location for us. It looked exactly like the photos. Amazingly quiet too and fabulous views. Christina also organized our transport from and to the airport, very punctual. We also booked a great boat tour through her recommendation. Could not be happier. We will definitely return.
