Our historic hotel has unique roots. Much of the original site used to be caves, hidden deep in the Santorini cliffs – and after first purchasing the land to build a family home, the original hoteliers decided to bring these spaces together to form a hotel, instead. Across five years, they carefully transformed them into amazing rooms and suites, and launched Esperas Santorini in 1992: one of the first hotels to occupy Oia. Since then, our sensational property has gone from strength to strength. Over the years, it was expanded again to include a peaceful pool – also carved into the rock – as well as more handcrafted cave houses, which today are filled with soft furnishings and art to inspire a serene, coastal vibe. Honouring the hotel’s heritage while keeping up with the times, we also offer modern amenities, traditional food, and access to the best Santorini experiences from our historic hotel. We’re honoured to champion this place, which began as a labour of love before becoming the multi-award winning destination it’s known as today.
