How to Get There
We stayed 4 days @ Art Maisons Luxury Suites - Aqua Cave for our honeymoon which started in Athens, Delphi, Meteora, Litochoro. Wish we had stayed for a week in Santorini for it's incredible views, relaxation, & Elias (Art Maisons’ manager) expert advice & care. We highly recommend Art Maisons (Aqua Cave) for the following:
1.) Elias, gentle giant: incredibly friendly, efficient, & passionate about Santorini tourism & caring for his guests. We felt like royal VIP's; he provided generous time to assess our hopes & then developed appropriate sightseeing & restaurant reservations to suit our desires. We cannot say enough about Elias - he's an amazing asset & effective manager for Art Maisons; super friendly/efficient staff like ANITA (waitress during breakfast & cocktail waitress at Aspaki); MARGARITA (breakfast cook extraordinaire); ADRIAN (Herculean type who carried our heavy luggage across the Santorini difficult step paths from far away). We visited sister establishment Aspaki for their large pool/cocktail bar/restaurant with volcanic island views; met friendly Nefeli, & Darinda (Bulgarian) who prepared the most delicious cocktails & Greek risotti inspired dinner, overlooking the sunset views across the volcanic islands.
2.) Our Aqua Cave: designer decor & indoor heated pool (asked to be heated by a couple degrees & they graciously complied) - dream come true for me, swam 3x daily & helped soothe muscles with all Oia steep walking. Hubby preferred outdoor heated Jacuzzi with incredible sunset views & passing ferries, sailboats, cruise ships, & volcanic islands. We had 3 separate & quite private seating areas outside of our aqua cave from which to view the stunning Oia, ocean & islands. I say private because above & around our hotel is a constant bustle with folks hoping to get front row seats to the incredible sunsets & incredible picture opportunities, including wedding parties, & large tourist groups; yet, we didn't hear it - at all. Inside our cave, we had a high-end espresso coffee/tea maker fully equipped, a nice size kitchen, & delicious complementary Contessa Spumante Champagne bottle (yum yum yum), ample size rooms, bathroom, mega comfortable bed/linens. Daily complementary breakfasts a la cart that you order from a menu were fresh, to die for tasty, highly creative food art pieces & befitting small eaters as well as super hungry guests.
3.) Elias recommended: George Kalogiannis, knowledgeable tour of full exquisite SANTORINI ISLE EXPERIENCE: picturesque, black mineral beach; 300 year old THENASSIS family church with warm patriarch greetings; Akrotiri ruins; Pure Santorini Winery; Santorini lighthouse; Faros Market & Products with unparalleled cellar Greek dinner experience – meeting with Matriarch Maria, great, generous, knowledgeable, outgoing hostess, & her charming family – she taught us of organic Greek farming practices - just unreal & so heartwarmingly recommended by us, to you.
CONS at AQUA CAVE: Lost internet for 2 days, but hey, may be a PRO, it's a paradise getaway isle to relax! :)
***We Highly Recommended Aqua Cave & Hope To Return For 10 Year Anniversary!
Having traveled extensively, all over the world in high end hotels, this was absolutely the most amazing hotel experience we have ever had. From the initial check in, we were welcomed with delicious refreshments, a detailed description of the area, then taken to the most incredible hotel room ever. We had a Cave Pool suite. Beautiful accommodations with sitting area, fabulous bedroom and bath, three terraces all with amazing and different views and a cave pool. We just can’t describe how wonderful this hotel was. Excellent food, outstanding staff in one of the absolute best locations, most photographed areas of Santorini.
We have just spent 5 fabulous nights here! Beautiful suites! Fabulous views! Food delicious! Breakfast was a treat - the staff members so lovely! We had lunch twice here - cooked by Anita! - delicious! The shrimp risotto!! We will be back! And probably very soon! Thank you Aspaki!
The hotel staff in this hotel offered the best customer service I have ever experienced from a hotel and I have stayed a lot of places. Anything they could possibly do to make your experience better, they do. Rooms were great. Views were unreal.
We stayed five days at Oia Castle last week. This was our favorite place in Greece, a huge part thanks to Elias the property manager.
Before we arrived he had been emailing and checking in with us. Upon arrival at the airport we had a driver waiting on us with our names on a sign. We shared the ride with another couple who were staying at the same place. Elias had two wonderful guys waiting to help us with our luggage when we got to the hotel. This is only the beginning of a very long walk and steps to the room. They were wonderful and I have no idea how they were able to get the luggage down.
This trip was for our wedding anniversary and Elias had champagne waiting on us int the room. We were in the two room villa with the indoor cave pool.
Elias took us to our room and explained a lot of things to help us. Like how to use the coffee maker which I would have messed up for sure. The room was amazing. We had wanted a pool and this was the villa available when we booked. It did not disappoint. The floors are marble in the living area. Beautiful cave house with bedrooms set into the rooms. Pool is huge. I’m 5’2” and it was over my head in some places. Large enough to swim in and the cool lights made it even more unique.
Elias recommended two different restaurants that were great. Everyone seemed to know him when we mentioned his name. He is definitely someone you will like immediately.
My husband and I had no real plans on what to do so he recommended a boat tour. It was amazing. They grilled shrimp, chicken and fish for lunch.
The next day we took Eias’s advice and went with a private tour with a gentleman named George. He is from the island so he was awesome telling us all about it. Went to two diferent wineries with private tastings set up for us. Grapes grown in Santorini are definitely done different than how they are grown in California.
Back to the room. We had the most awesome view of the sunset each evening with the best seats on the island to watch it. The patio has two levels. The bottom one is a table and chairs. The top one has several seating options.
It’s not exactly private when the tourist line up along the wall for the view. On the top deck you are higher and have a great view.
Got to watch the donkies (mules) climb the steps several times a day.
We had a wonderful breakfast set up for us each morning. It isn’t in your room but a short climb up to the little kitchen. Will stay here next time we go to Santorini for sure!!
