To start planning your vacation to Vedema Resort
Vedema offers a rustic getaway with a secluded location on Santorini’s west coast in the medieval village of Megalohori. This spacious hotel boasts large suites and villas as well as transport to a local beach, making it an ideal choice for families.
With a central location towards the south of Santorini this is a fantastic base with a homely feel, in a traditional village away from the crowds of the north. The surrounding medieval village is reflected in the hotels own design, which also emulates a traditional Greek village, making this a spacious option with plenty of room for younger guests to explore and quiet raised patios to relax and enjoy Santorini’s endless sunshine. Set a little further inland, the hotel is sheltered from the strong winds of the coast and with fewer hotels here there is a homely atmosphere steeped in Greek tradition.
The pool at Vedema is considerably larger in size compared to other hotels in Santorini and is surrounded by comfortable sun loungers and a large outdoor jacuzzi. Next to the pool is the Pergola restaurant and bar where you can enjoy delicious modern Greek food in the shade of the veranda, including fresh Greek salads, whilst soaking up the relaxing views of the surrounding village and vineyards, as well as the sea beyond.
A highlight of Vedema is Canava wine bar set in a 400-year-old winery, where the hotel offers an exciting wine tasting in an impressive setting. At Alati restaurant you may choose to dine al fresco on the expansive terrace or inside a former winery cave, maintaining a traditional design with exposed brick walls and high-domed ceilings, which at night is illuminated by candles to create an intimate, romantic setting. The carefully-created menu features sumptuous fine-dining Aegean seafood options with a rustic farm-to-table twist.
The Asian spa features bamboo doors and walls and incorporates Thai and Indian techniques across a range of treatments, including massages and skin care rituals. There is also a small, but well-equipped fitness center and sauna.
