ARIS CAVES, an exceptional hotel in the island of Santorini, is situated barely a 100 meters from the village center of Oia and close to all attractions but despite of this proximity it is tranquil and ideal for a vacation in Santorini. Years ago, caves were discovered on the Caldera side of Oia on the Greek island of Santorini which archaeologists identified as ancient cave houses and lodgings. Some of these cave dwellings were transformed into Hotel ARIS CAVES, a small and intimate apartment hotel with 7 independent vacation rentals. A place to relax, to dream and to enjoy the breathtaking view 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 studios, apartments and a suite, all with kitchenette or kitchen, bathroom/toilet, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, their own terrace and some of them with Jacuzzis 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 caldera location, the many stairs and low perimeter walls, we recommend children to be at least 8 years of age and also unfortunately we cannot recommend our hotel to guests with limited mobility.
