    This is an oasis in busy Oia! Yes there are many steps, but it was nice to have some distance from the crowds. We stayed in the Gonia suite which had a private hot tub and small upper deck with a magnificent view. The staff were helpful and...

    The service upon arrival and departure was excellent. The porter took care of my luggage completely. The location was incredible. It was close to everything , however just a bit away so my stay was super quiet.

Many years ago caves were discovered on the cliff side (Caldera) of Oia in Santorini. Archaeologists identified them as ancient cave houses and lodgings. Some of these cave dwellings were transformed into ARIS CAVES.
I have always loved traveling and exploring different cultures as well as meeting people from all over the world. Hence I decided I would love to work in the hospitality sector and specifically manage a small property with a commitment to excellent service. I was lucky to find Aris Caves and my new goal is to always strive to surpass my guests' expectations.
