Resort Grounds

Hotel History

With Santorini's rich history dating back beyond 1645 BC, Vedema Resort both pays homage to the past and plays an important role in the island's present.

  • Situated on a more than 500-year-old vineyard overlooking the medieval village of Megalohori, the resort was built in 1993 when Antonis Elliopoulos, the son of a notable shipping family, had the idea of developing the family’s summer estate into an innovative first-class resort reflective of Santorini’s culture and customs. He then commissioned renowned architect Mary Kavagia and interior designers Yiannis Tseklenis and Aggelos Aggelopoulos to create a traditional fortified Greek village made up of sophisticated Grecian-style villas and small handcrafted houses, surrounded by an indigenous stone wall.

  • The old wine-harvest spot on the estate was selected as the resort’s focal point. And, in fact, its name, Vedema, is the direct Venetian translation for 'harvest.' Today, wines produced here are sold and celebrated internationally. Additionally, the resort renovated the old cellars under the village to fulfill important resort functions as a meeting center, wine-tasting room, private dining room, and the charming Alati Restaurant.

  • Elliopoulos continued the transformation in 2019, when he undertook an interior renovation that included creating spacious marble bathrooms with bathtubs and showers and updating technology with the latest equipment and devices. All furniture was replaced with antique, island-style offerings, sugar-white in color and upholstered in sumptuous fabrics.

  • This ongoing fusion of traditional and contemporary makes Vedema Resort Santorini’s top spot year after year.

About Ownership

  • A series of serendipitous events led Kalia and Antonis Eliopoulos to hospitality, armed with a natural talent for piecing together a compelling narrative. It was the pull of Santorini, a mesmerizing island Antonis Eliopoulos had been visiting since childhood, that changed their destiny. On one of his countless trips here, he decided to buy a rustic vineyard, which turned into their first hotel in 1993 – Vedema, a Luxury Collection Resort, a unique village-like setting loved by locals and guests alike. Their passion for hospitality motivated them to take on the iconic Oía village, where they introduced in 2007 Mystique, a Luxury Collection Hotel, a secluded hideaway carved into the rugged caldera cliffs and boasting glorious views to the infinite blue of the Aegean archipelago. The duo knew that their third hotel on the volcanic island, Istoria, a Member of Design Hotels, had to be on the magical black sand beach of Perivolos, where they transformed a former palazzo of a legendary socialite to a serene retreat for sophisticated travelers. Wishing to expand their horizons, in 2018 they  journeyed to the nearby island of Paros, for their fourth property, Parīlio, a Member of Design Hotels, opened in July 2019, where they crafted an artful statement amid a world of pine-fringed coves and white-washed historical villages.
