Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites & Spa
Oia Santorini Greece
on via Tripadvisor.com

We have just returned from a fantastic one week stay at the Santo Maris. The hotel is in a marvellous location overlooking the sea in multiple direction, including to the west to see the famous sunsets. The villas are very spacious, comfortable and with enormous beds. The restaurant is very good with spectacular views over the infinity pool out over the sea. The food is on the expensive side but the quality is reflected in the price you pay, the location and service. There is a good selection of wine from Santorini and Greece as well as from wider afield. The staff are impeccable, from the moment of arrival to departure. They are always polite and go out of their way to help. There are staff available to help advise and book tours, housekeepers that keep you plied with complimentary bottles of chilled water throughout the day and staff from the spa even come around the sunbeds offering (free) short massages and advice on sun protection! The spa itself is excellent, with a good variety of treatments and again exceptional staff. Some reviewers have commented about the location being a short walk from Oia. For us, this was a big advantage. Oia can get very busy, particularly if your arrival in town coincides with a couple of coach loads of cruise passengers from Fira. The SM was an oasis of calm compared to this – a 5 minute walk yet a world away in terms of calm tranquillity with plenty of space. Could it be improved? Maybe some shade (umbrella) on the verandas, so these are usable during the middle of the day (although we recognise this might spoil the aesthetics.). There is a pillow menu but maybe a duvet menu too? We had some trouble getting the temperature right at night and ditching the duvet for a sheet and blanket might have solved the problem. Overall, we would have no hesitation in recommending this as a great place to stay. PS: We know the management read these reviews. It would be great if they could feedback to the authorities that, whilst Santorini is a marvellous place to visit, the experience of leaving through the airport is pretty dreadful. The departure area desperately needs expanding and it is a shame that the last memories of our holiday are of being crammed like sardines with virtually no room to move let alone sit down and barely any facilities. The contrast to our treatment in the hotel could not be more extreme!

We stayed at the Santo Maris in a sunset view junior suite for our 25th anniversary. We both agreed this was out favorite place EVER! From the moment we arrived the staff really went out of their way to make us feel like family. Everything was top notch, from the breakfast buffet to the in-house restaurant Alios Ilios, to the incredible sunsets from our private suite with a Jacuzzi. The site has 5 amazing pools with infinity views of the Aegean, and is just a few steps from Oia shopping and dining. It is not in the tourist path so everything was very relaxing. The staff and facilities are first-rate. We couldn't have been happier there. Our only problem not wanting to leave! As an aside, we booked our entire trip through Costco travel, and they did a fantastic job both on hotel selection and ensuring our trip went smoothly from start to finish.

We recently met some friends in Santorini for a few nights and stayed at the Santo Maris Oia Luxury suites. We were lucky enough to get one of the newer suites. The room was beautiful, very spacious, great bathroom, a balcony with a jacuzzi and even a small kitchen area. The room was decorated beautifully and the view from our balcony was spectacular. I hope to go again and I will definitely stay at the same hotel! I highly recommend it.

My husband and I went there for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! We stayed in the honeymoon suite. When we arrived they had candles, rose petals, champagne and chocolate strawberries waiting for us. It was a great way to start our trip! We also did the honeymoon spa package. It was wonderful and so relaxing. Th customer service at the hotel is impeccable! The concierge helped us set up excursions before we arrived as well as while we were there. She was so friendly and helpful! The location is great, too. It is about a 10 minute walk from the main town. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a luxury experience!

My husband and I were celebrating our honeymoon and we decided to splurge on one night’s accommodation at Santo Maris after doing some extensive research and reading reviews online. The price was 10x of the price we paid for our Thira accomodation but it was sooo worth it and a dream come true to be able to experience a stay in one of the best accommodation in Santorini! Was telling the husband that if we come back, we are not sure whether we want to try other luxury accommodation and risk disappointment as Santo Maris has set the bar really high. We arrived early on the day of check in, at around 1230pm when the check in time was supposed to be at 2pm. Was given a nice surprise when the receptionist told us that our room is ready. What a perfect start to our stay. We were then served two welcome drinks which were sooo delicious, that we actually asked what they were made of. Apparently it’s a fizzy honey lemon drink, specially made in house by the kitchen staff. So refreshing on a hot summer day. We were then also given towels to freshen up before another staff lug our baggage onto a buggy to bring us to our room. While on the buggy the staff gave us a grounds tour. We stayed in the exclusive sunset junior suite sea view which is a new part of the accommodation that’s just opened this year. When we entered the room it just blew us away! It was a beautiful combination of class, modernity, good taste and eco-friendliness as many of the furniture are made from bamboo / wood. What I love most is the view from the hot tub. Amazing, unperturbed sunset view - we soaked in the hot tub and enjoyed the sunset for more than 2 hours. We have been to other sunset points on the island before then but when you stay in Santo Maris, you do not need to leave the comfort of your room to experience the glorious Santorini sunset. We ordered room service for dinner and surprisingly, the food was affordable and delicious! Service at Santo Maris is always efficient. Room amenities are always delivered within 10 minutes and our cooked food always arrive within 30 minutes. As it was our honeymoon, they also welcomed us with a free bottle of champagne for the husband and a glass of tasty lemon honey for me as I don’t drink alcohol. They even gifted us two small bottles of honey with almond, a bottle of cream from the spa and also 2 towels. They had the bed beautifully decorated with 2 swans too. The small thoughtful touches really made our day. Well done to the Santo Maris team, hopefully I’ll get the chance to come back and do a longer stay next time :)

The hotel is just 5 minutes to the Nik. Nomikou Street where you will find all you are looking for in Santorini. About the hotel itself, the suites are very nice with individual Jacuzzi. There is 4 pools and a great Spa. You can eat and drink by the main pool and you will have a great view of the sunset from there. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can organize yout boat trip or wine tour from the reception quite fast.

Schönes stylisches Hotel - aber entgegen der Beschreibung nicht in Strandlage. Zum Zentrum von Oia nur wenige Gehminuten.

We arrived to this hotel to be knocked off our feet - the staff from the hotel are so warm and so caring we were instantly feeling at home. The staff is exceptional and Oia is lovely. The rooms have amazing amenities, they are comfortable and spacious and we slept really well, so well we actually wondered where the mattress is from! This is the best hotel we've been to in a while.

We loved our honeymoon in Santorini!! We felt really at home the instant we arrived, the service (from all aspects of the resort-concierge, bellhops, waitstaff, cleaning staff) is OUTSTANDING. Our junior suite was amazing! It is decorated extremely trendy and cool and i wish i could decorate my house exactly like it. It is very large, with a kitchen and separate bathroom wing and private jacuzzi. We had our own sea view. I wish i could live here and we didn't want our honeymoon stay to end. We had heard that Oia is notorious for crowds on the streets at night so we were nervous that this would happen outside the resort. However, we were so happy upon arrival and finding out that the Oia town is about a five minute walk, so it truly is quiet and peaceful. The concierge (Marianne?) was amazing. My husband literally went to her and sat down and was like "What can we do today?" and we had a few days worth of perfect-for-us activities booked within like twenty minutes. Side Note: While i'm sure that there are rooms/suites at the Santo Maris with the famous sunset views, our junior suite did not have one. Make sure to check beforehand if you have expectations of sunset views. Didn't really matter though for us because the concierge set us up with excellent restaurant reservations during sunset.

Just returned from a 3-stop honeymoon and the Santo Maris Oia was by far our most favorite. The facilities are beautiful, modern, and spacious. It feels like you have you’re own little apartment. The spa is wonderful and super relaxing. The best feature is the welcoming and friendly staff!

Perfect location next to Oia but outside the hubbub. Our suite was beautiful - every detail attended to, delicious breakfasts every morning, beautiful pool area. The bed was AWESOME and they had a pillow menu to make sure you were perfectly comfy. Loved this place!!

-Le restaurant gastronomique n'est pas tout à fait à la hauteur des autres prestations de l’hôtel. Par contre, le petit déjeuner est royal. +Pour peu que vous ayez opté pour une vue dégagée et sans vis-à-vis sur la mer Égée, la vue est tout simplement magnifique ! Complexe hôtelier calme et à l’abri du tumulte de la vie touristique d'Oia. C'est un réel plus. Le personnel est attentif, aimable et très serviable. La management est également à l'écoute de ses clients.

We loved everything about this hotel. Short walk into town, beautiful setting to see the sunset right from our room. Excellent service. Would highly recommend.
