Hotel Overview


Mid-way up the island of Santorini, in the small village of Megalochori. It will take you 10 minutes to get to Vedema from the port, and they also run a complimentary shuttle service to their private beach.

Rooms at Vedema

Built in the traditional Cycladic style, with fresh white walls, arched ceilings, and cool marble floors, the 45 villas at Vedema veil you in calm the moment you walk in. Aegean Suites have their own outdoor Jacuzzi (the perfect spot to enjoy Santorini’s legendary sunsets), whilst Olympian Suites have panoramic views out to sea, and private swimming pools.

Food and Facilities

Vedema's roof terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink, gazing out to sea and with traditional music drifting up from the softly lit village. Meanwhile, in the vaulted wine-cellar you can enjoy an intimate dinner of stuffed vine-leaves, fresh calamari – or whatever delicious Mediterranean dish is on the menu. Vedema also has a large pool, a cocoon-like spa beneath its arches, and a private beach with a snack bar.

Activities at Vedema

A stay at Vedema is really about relaxing and soaking up authentic culture away from the crowds. During the day, you can have a wander around the village, stepping inside the serene white-washed churches, before taking the free shuttle down to the private beach. By night, the nearby restaurants come alive: lit by lanterns, and with traditional music. For more active guests, there are archaeological sites nearby, and you can also arrange boat-trips to see the volcanoes that formed the island.
