Review: Vedema Resort Santorini, Greece

During my time in Santorini, Greece I also visited the Vedema Resort.

The Starwood resort is located away from the cliffs in the southern interior of the island. It's in a small village called Megalochori. The area used to be a winery.

The additional space allows the resort to offer a more spacious accommodation that most of the 'cliff hangers' and is also more kid friendly. Alas it does not have the views other resorts offer.

I really loved the interior design and how it mixes with the old winery style. It's very well done and blends in nicely with the white/blue/black of the village.

Most rooms are former caves used for wine making with some suites being additional buildings. The gym itself is located in a wine cave – it's a pretty unusual sight.

The resort sells standard level rooms from EUR 400 in the main season. Rooms can be booked for 40,000 Starpoints. The resort does try to upgrade Platinums to the suites though availability can be an issue. It might be worth doing a refundable bookings and use a suite upgrade and only move in if it clears. I really liked the suites with their private pool but do not recommend the standard level rooms given the price tag that comes with it.

If you love Santorini and have kids the resort is a good alternative since you have multiple nice pools and a more kid friendly environment without the fear of your kids literally jumping over the cliff.
