    Our opinion

    This is a very special resort that has been beautifully designed and offers many opportunities.

    Hotel description

    The spectacular volcanic island of Santorini has long been a favourite for its dramatic beauty and the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea that surround it. The Vedema Resort is located on the southeast of the island, in the mediaeval village of Megalohori. Built in the style of a fortified village, the traditional white-domed architecture complements the rolling vineyards and sparkling sea. Cobblestone pathways and flower-studded courtyards scatter the grounds and create a very special atmosphere. Committed to providing ample opportunity to unwind and relax, the resort offers a wide range of spaces, from the private black sand beach to sunbeds amidst pistachio trees. Volcano and island excursions, sunset cruises and horse riding all allow for exploration of this magnificent island. Set within a cool, earthy environment that reflects the traditional style of the island, the resort’s spa offers age-old Grecian therapies that refresh and soothe. The array of dining opportunities starts with a luxurious champagne breakfast and continues to a number of choices throughout the day, including the gourmet Vinsanto Restaurant, which is romantically situated in a 400-year old winery, carved from the Thiran earth. Accommodation is offered in the resort’s luxury villas, where contemporary style and vibrant colours are complemented by shuttered windows, original art and a four-poster bed. The interior ensures that the local charm is preserved.
