Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgetownTraveller Excellent Stay - Very Welcoming Staff
My wife and I had a great stay this September at the Vedema. Alex and his team were great and the hotel facilities were excellent. The shuttles to and from town were helpful and very reasonably priced taxis were available to fill in any gaps. The small town around the hotel had a number of nice, quaint, restaurants, and there is a little shop right outside the hotel entrance to load up on water, wine, and other necessities. Food at the resort was also excellent and the complementary local wine on check-in was appreciated. I would highly recommend this resort for a relaxing getaway! PS - Take the sunset cruise, it was exceptional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by UKfamily2014 Superb 10 out of 10
We arrived in Santorini from Athens and spent the first 3 nights in Fira and then moved to the Vedema for 3 nights 4 days of relaxation. The hotel more than fulfilled our expectations. Superb setting, and even though the hotel was fully booked the hotel did not feel busy as it is well spread out. We often had the jacuzzi pool or swimming pool to ourselves ! The breakfast and lunch in the restaurant by the pool were perfect as was dinner in the restaurant each evening (and due to the good weather we ate on the upstairs terrace). Prices are extremely reasonable which should encourage guests to eat in. ALL the staff without exception were superb. Britta is the front office manager and sits in the reception area from early morning til late at night so is always ready to help you with any information needed. Located in a charming quiet village, easy to travel from if you have a rent a car, or if like us you did not you can use the comfortable complimentary shuttle to their private beach or Fira (both 10-15 minutes away). I cannot recommend this hotel enough !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Losanno Excellent Hotel Near a Quaint Village
Loved this hotel. Excellent Platinum recognition and upgrade to a beautiful multi-level villa. The staff is excellent and very friendly. We rented a car from Hertz right in the lobby and they took care of everything. The village behind the resort is cute and the restaurant is excellent. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Danny1976 A must visit resort
We booked the hotel using our american express.It was the perfect place. Staff was very helpful without any excemption. High quality services were provided. The breakfast can be considered as perfect. You will require a car if you need to go around the island but even if you do not have the hotel provides transportation. Hotel beach was perfect with great service. Vedema is the place that you need to visit if you need to relax an obtain a high quality service. Great spa. People do know what are they doing. Great food. Resaturants should be visitted. Thank you vedema for one of the best holidays. C u next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeterVIP Great spa type quiet getaway
Wonderful surprise for relaxing. Outstanding staff, with the best restaurant manager we have ever met. They exceeded all of our expectations, once we realized this is a quiet and different place. Not a showplace, just a uniquely elegant getaway. Think romantic, not glitz. The anti-Trump holiday.
The location may be very different for most visitors. Not on or near the sea, with only distant Aegean view. Rather, it's within walls, part of the Town. It isn't even in the pretty part of Santorini that most people want. Once there, however, you will visit the other parts and see why the Vedema is perfect. Totally quiet. So different from what we expected, but by day two, we understood. You come back from Fira or Oia, and you sink into a poolside chaise. The staff will take care of you, and you'll see. VERY relaxing. Soothing place, and we hated to leave and move on.

How excited was I when I saw the picture of Vedema Resort, Santorini on the cover of January 2013 Travel & Leisure Magazine as one of the Best Hotels in the World. The magazine compelled me to write this review of our stay back in September of 2010. The Vedema Resort on the island of Santorini is truly heaven on earth. The white capped resort is nettled on top of a mountain with vista views of nearby vineyards. The resort itself is like a small village with cottages. The resort staff is extremely friendly and hospitable at all times. As a SPG Platinum we were upgraded to a private villa with our own private pool and outdoor Jacuzzi; the villa was spectacular. Every thing in the room was brilliant white and accented with beautiful hues of blues...it was surreal and celestial. We had an amazing dinner at the resort's Vinsanto Restaurant. The setting for the restaurant was a 400 years old wine cellar/cave. The Greek/Mediterranean cuisine, the attentive service and the decor of Vinsanto Restaurant was out of this world; you could not ask for a more romantic place for a memorable dinner. We also had an incredible breakfasts and lunches poolside at Pergola Restaurant. The daily seafood choices were divine and delicious! While the resort is located on the top of a mountain, the resort has a reserved section of a nearby Perivolos beach and offers several courtesy shuttle bus services to and from the black sand and azure water beach. At the Perivolos beach resort staff are attentive to your needs. Reserved chaise lounges and towel services are provided. Food and drinks services are available with the resort owned restaurant called the Eau Zone beachside restaurant and bar. If you are looking for a romantic getaway resort that provides serenity and great service you will not be disappointed with Vedema Resort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay that we had to extend it and did not want to leave this heaven on earth. Vedema is definitely one of the best resort we have experienced and stayed at by far with all our travels around the world; don't take my word for it, see the January 2013 issue of Travel & Leisure Magazine where they rate the Vedema Resort as one of the Best Hotels in the World. Congratulations and Kudos to the Management and Staff; you all should be commended for this acheivement! Thank you for the great vacation full of wonderful memories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jim12345 luxury, friendliness, perfection
Loved this hotel!! The staff is very friendly and can give you information about local attractions. I used points for this stay and was treated as if I was a millionaire. We were picked up at the dock by a friendly driver and taken right to the hotel where they offered us a drink and showed us around the resort and to our suite which was spacious and comfortable. Complimentary wine and water, nice pool and spa. The town which is right off the entrance to the hotel is charming - great food in local restaurant Raki, and the Cavalas Winery is steps away. Highly recommend this hotel. Oh, they also have a free shuttle to Fira and to the black sand beach PLUS they took us to Oia the following morning for the rest of our vacation. We did not utilize the spa but looked nice and they also have a gym

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shabby1566 Santorini Paradise!
Simply Amazing...we were on our 25th Anniversary trip and this was the perfect setting! Situated right in the center of a traditional Greek town square, Megalohori. The setting is amazing right in the midst of vineyards and only minutes to the beach..really you can see all of Santorini very quickly and this is certainly quitter than the large centers like Fira and Ia.
Britta was our host from the moment we arrived and she is the best person we have ever dealt with at a hotel/resort! Not only is she an amazing host but an amazing person! She made our stay that much more special and took care of all our requests...always with a smile!
There are some amazing places to eat right in the town literally a 1 minute walk from your room.
We would also suggest wine tasting at Vedema as the sommelier is very knowledgeable!
If you want a special trip to a special place, this is it!
