"A classy alternative home on Santorini with a vineyard"
Travellers preferring to enjoy the caldera in small, selective doses will inevitably gravitate to this 100-year-old former mansion and winery and oldest luxury resort on Santorini. Nestled seamlessly among the confines of a traditional village, Vedema Resort offers spacious and secluded exclusivity away from the cobbles and climbing of the caldera rim communities. Vedema Resort will appeal to families, senior travellers and romantics who like stone, wine and creative cuisine. Close to the port and with easy access to the airport, Vedema is an excellent, relaxing base to conveniently explore Santorini beyond the rim.
Very luxurious hotel. From entrance, to the guide tour of the hotel, it is all magnificent. I had a suite with balcony jacousi. Very delicious food. The staff is good but they are a bit slow, thats ok. Try vedema wine from their own wine yard.
"Great hotel, poor location."
The property is quite nice. Great staff, great rooms, nice pool. They went above and beyond trying to accommodate me before the regular check-in time. The only down side is that it's far from Oia and there's not much to do in the area. You'll need a car to explore the island anyway, so it's not a disaster. Unless you're on your honeymoon and just want to relax and enjoy - then you should really consider alternatives in Oia.
"Beautiful property, wonderful stay!"
We LOVED our stay at the Vedema. The rooms were super spacious (two floors!) and had views of the hillside and ocean. Amazing breakfast buffet overlooking the pool area with a lot of delicious Greek options. Definitely a highlight of trip everyday. We also really liked the location of this hotel because it is a bit removed which adds to the charm. Rent a car - it was super easy thanks to the helpful front desk and it made traveling around the island so much easier. We also made friends with another couple at breakfast and ended up traveling around the island with them - so much fun. We headed to Mykonos after the Vedema and we kept longing to be back in Santorini. Enjoy this gem of a hotel!
"Beautiful Property, subpar service, not ideal location"
We stayed here at the beginning of the season (May 2016). The property is very nice we got upgraded to a villa with my gold status. We had a lounge + 2 beds/2 baths - the villa was very spacious. The service was ok. We had questions as it was our first visit to Santorini and the front desk was less than helpful. We were told by the front desk we could use the pool at their sister property in Oia and when we ask how to set it up - the women treated us like we were asking for a huge favor. When we also asked for recs for watching the sunset - the rec was horrible. It was crowded and the view was not great. The location, I thought, was ok. You're not near Oia or Fire. We used the hotel shuttle for one way and a bus to go in between Fira and Oia. But the really only way to get around is by taxi which is very expensive and they're not readily available. Not sure I would stay there again.
