Aris Caves Oia

Many years ago, caves were discovered on the cliff side (Caldera) of Oia on the Greek island of Santorini and archaeologists identified them as ancient cave houses and lodgings. Some of these cave dwellings were transformed into Hotel ARIS CAVES, a small and intimate resort with 7 independent vacation rentals.

ARIS CAVES is located within 5 minutes walking distance from the village center of Oia and close to all attractions. In spite of this proximity, it remains tranquil and ideal for a romantic vacation in Santorini. A place to relax, to dream and to enjoy the breathtaking views across the Santorini Caldera, the volcano Nea Kameni, the island Thirasia and the deep blue Aegean Sea.

There are 7 self-catering, fully equipped and separate rooms (4 studios, 2 apartments and 1 suite), all with kitchenette or kitchen, bathroom/toilet, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, their own private terrace and some of them with private hot tubs spread over 3 levels. The large terrace in the center and the sun terrace next to the entrance of ARIS CAVES are available to all guests.  Due to the resort's cliff side location, the many steps and low perimeter walls, we recommend children to be at least 12 years of age and also unfortunately we cannot recommend our hotel to guests with limited mobility.

During the past years ARIS CAVES has been thoroughly modernized, renovated and adapted for more comfort. Private hot tubs have been added to Suite Patári, Superior Studio Folia, Studio Gonia and an additional room was created - the Deluxe Studio Kallisti which also includes a private hot tub. 

Your host Christina Papafili looks forward to welcoming you at ARIS CAVES and is at your disposal with information, advice and help in all local matters you may have in English, French and Greek.
