Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Vedema lies mid-way up the island of Santorini, in the small village of Megalohori.

Rooms at Vedema

Built in the traditional Cycladic style, with fresh white walls, arched ceilings and cool marble floors, the 45 one to three-bedroom suites and villas at Vedema veil you in calm the moment you walk in. As well as locally-sourced antique furniture and exclusive artworks adding a personal touch, they all have private terraces and many come with private Jacuzzis or pools. The Aegean suites have their own outdoor Jacuzzi (the perfect spot to enjoy Santorini’s legendary sunsets), whilst the Olympian villas also have private pools and panoramic views out to the sea and the vineyards. 

Vedema also has the exclusive five-bedroom Nafsika Estate, a lavish five-bedroom villa a short drive away, overlooking the caldera, which comes complete with a chef, a butler, a large pool and a private helipad.

Food & Drink

Enjoy American-style buffet breakfasts and Greek and Mediterranean lunches by the pool at the Pergola restaurant, alongside drinks from the bar, while the Alati restaurant has an innovative seafood menu, which you can feast on under the stars or in the historic vaulted wine cellar, accompanied by vintage wines. For a special occasion, enjoy a private tailor-made five or seven-course degustation menu. 

Vedema's roof terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink, with traditional music drifting up from the softly-lit village. 

Facilities

Vedema has a large pool, a cocoon-like spa beneath its arches, a blissful spa, a Jacuzzi, a sauna and a fitness centre, as well as a private beach with a bar and restaurant on the distinctive black volcanic sands of Perivolos, 6km from the hotel - take the complimentary shuttle. 

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 whitewashed churches, and visit local vineyards. By night, the nearby restaurants come alive, lit by lanterns and playing traditional music.

For more active guests, there are archaeological sites nearby, such as the renowned Akrotiri, which is 6km away, and you can also enjoy scenic hikes and horse rides, as well as private boat trips to see the volcanoes that formed the island or go diving. You can even take a helicopter ride from the hotel's own helipad - the ultimate way to explore.
