Irida Santorini
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2017 via mobile

Spent five nights at Irida with my partner. Katerina and Dimitris were amazing hosts and so helpful with everything. The view from the room was absolutely incredible and it was the most amazing experience to be served breakfast on our private balcony surrounded by such stunning beauty. Would highly recommend.

Irida is absolutely amazing!! We spent 30 hours traveling and arrived in Santorini after midnight for our Greek honeymoon. We had arranged to have a private transfer to Irida (previously arranged with Dimitris). Great decision! Dimitris met us at the gate (even after midnight!) to show us to our room and explain everything. We called in the morning to order our breakfast and it was brought to our room/patio. What a way to wake up! The view was exquisite. And the breakfast was unbelievable! I am Celiac and require gluten free food - Katerina had gotten me gluten free bread and cookies. I never went hungry! They were always around to help or provide advice or recommendations. Even when we were enjoying the terrace and cold plunge pool, we were offered coffee and provided towels. We can't recommend Irida enough! Imerovigli was the perfect location between Oia and Fira - beautiful, great sunsets, and quiet! The only suggestion would be to have lounge/reclining chairs on the balconies so we wouldn't have to leave the villa at all ;) Thank you, Irida!!

We have just returned from a week at the Irida suites, which is a small (6 room) B&B place in Imerovigli, the highest village on Santorini. It was simply fantastic - from the private transfer from the airport (there and back), to the fresh continental breakfast delivered to your bedroom door and a room so clean and tidy you'd swear that they re-paint it everytime you go out! The location makes this place perfect as it was very quiet and secluded from the main road and walking path between Fira and Oia. NOTE: Many of the other properties have pools, sunbeds or balconies that you can just look in full-view as you walk past - Irida is private and a short (flat!) walk to the main square,shops and restaurants etc. The highlight for us was the view across the caldera from your private balcony, with amazing opportunities to watch the sunset with a glass of wine rather than brave the hordes that travel to Oia! Imerovigli is THE place to stay on the island, being the highest village (best views!) but only a short walk to Fira (20 mins) - very busy even in May, and not particularly attractive, and a nicer trek (2hrs 30 mins) along the rim of the caldera to the more cosmopolitan (i.e. more expensive!) Oia - a great day out if you walk both ways, but only 1.8 Euro per person one way on the local bus. The rooms were perfect - we had a loft bedroom space with sitting room downstairs, equipped with small sink and fridge/freezer and of course the private terrace. The staff you will meet are very nice and friendly and keep the whole place spotlessly clean, and the hosts will offer advice on any trips, visits, sights to see that you may want to do... they were both also lovely people just to talk to and a credit to the famous Greek hospitality... For example, we had a night flight back to Bristol (departing at 2310h) but after a quick check that our room wasnt booked back-to-back, allowed us to use it until our pick up at 2000h, which effectively gave us another days holiday! Thank you Katerina and Dimitris!! You can certainly stay in more expensive places on Santorini, but if you like good honest hospitality and value for money, privacy and peace and quiet - book a stay at Irida - you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: All rooms with the caldera view will be stunning...

We have spent 3 wonderful days in Irida in the end of September 2016. It is a small bbcomplex(6rooms) on the top point of the island! Lovely views from every room! Spotless clean, nice breakfast with delicious homemade cakes made by Katerina. From the very first moment we were treated with great care, our every request was organized quickly, taxis, advice where to go and how, suitcases were taken care of, water brought to the room for free. 5star service really. We were so happy after our walks around the island to come back to the cool clean room to relax and enjoy the spectacular views! Internet was powerful enough to watch the news and check emails. There were no staires to climb or to go down- very convenient. Shops, 4good restaurants around, the walking path right under the complex. The small water tab u could use, we did not but it was so pleasant to have it there. We enjoyed staying in Irida so much! Thank you Dimitris and Katerina for such a wonderful experience. Definitely will be back. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a good view.

This is the most beautiful spot imaginable. Katerina and Dimitris are perfect hosts who go out of their way to accommodate guests. From the delicious, homemade breakfasts served at your request to opening the door at 6 am on departure morning to find Dimitris standing there with a smile to take our luggage to the van, every single detail was addressed with love and care. I wish I could go back there every year and stay for weeks! Don't miss your chance to visit this magical place!
