“Amazing Weddings!”

We were married at the Heliotopos in 2007 and were offered a free vow renewal if we returned to Santorini for our 5th anniversary.

We arrived at the hotel around 10 am after around 30 hours of travel. (We had a 15 hour layover in London and did some sightseeing) Our suite wasn’t ready so early, so they gave us a different room to take a nap and had our room ready for us when we woke up.

We rented a scooter, which I highly recommend if you want to visit the beaches, ruins and wineries the island has to offer. One of the greatest memories of my life is riding on the back of a scooter with my new husband, on a cliff overlooking the caldera. Breathtaking.

Our wedding was lovely, and Lila took care to make sure everything was perfect. It was so nice to tell her a few preferences and have her create such an amazing event. Everything was just as I’d pictured it.

Our wedding was rained out (something Lila told us had never happened before) so we postponed until the next evening and the hotel arranged for us to have dinner in a local tavern in the hills. The owners there were great and fed us a four course dinner with wine on the hotel. Before this dinner, Lila took us to a winery on her own time to show us around and help us order a case to be shipped home.

Dear friends from Heliotopos,
We have a wonderful experience with you. You were kind, helpful and supportive.You won our trust and answered all our questions for best planning of our wedding. We were very pleased by the photographer from Ventouris who made nice photos for us.The wedding dinner in the Heliotopos cave restaurant was really a good choice. The vanilla cake we found absolutely delicious.
Dear couples,
The wedding location at Heliotopos was unforgettable. We recommend a walk to the Red Beach. Also, as our May wedding was a little windy and cloudy and I wanted it outside, we recommend a good back up plan for the ceremony in mind and a warm jacket in the baggage.

Love and warm regards,
Mariya and Dzhem

When deciding to get married in Greece, it was hard to choose anywhere else
but Santorini. I had previously spent a whole summer on the island, so had
experienced its magical beauty.

I contacted Lila from Heliotopos in the hope that she would agree to help us
plan our special day, not initially realizing just how much she would proceed to
organise for us.

Coordinating a wedding from Australia in Greece in a matter of months I thought
would prove to be difficult; however Lila was always quick to respond by email,
and remained a wealth of knowledge, efficiency and expertise. From church and
reception ideas and bookings, to flowers, photographer, videographer, the cake,
hair and makeup, every last detail was booked precisely and flowed smoothly.
Almost to a point where she made it so easy for me, to just choose what I wanted
and put my trust in Lila to deliver, and this she certainly did.

I will never forget what Lila and her team did for us on our special day, opening
your hotel/home to myself and best girlfriends to prepare on the day was such
a special moment. Heliotopos is stunning, the rooms divine and the views
breathtaking. Read more

We were married at Heliotopos 10 years ago and had a unbelievable experience! Lila was wonderful to work with then and we were thrilled that we got to catch up 10 years later. We only had one day on Santorini as a stop on a Windstar cruise and wanted to stop by. We ended up renewing our wedding vows and had another great experience at Heliotopos. No musicians and donkey rides around the caldera this time, but it was like going home. I tell every young couple I meet to consider skipping the stress and escaping to beautiful Santorini and Heliotopos for a wedding they’ll never forget.

“Amazing Experience”

Lila, Vanda, Yiota are amazing. We researched where to have our wedding and the personal service you get from Lila over the internet is by far what sets her above all others in the area. She always responded promptly with questions. It was by far a never forget experience.We ran into some problems with documents and Lila had alternatives solutions that ended up being better than what we had originally planned! She reserved the best Photographer, the best Videographer, and best Hair Stylist (& Make up) I could have asked for. Ms. Helen, you were amazing and thanks for the help with my dress.

The food is amazing (Lila is an amazing cook). The morning breakfast is also amazingly delicious. The ceremony was amazing (both of them). The view is incredible, the staff is so hospitable. We had such an amazing experience. While we ran into some problems as long as you aren’t high strung and amendable to changes (or understand the European way–laid back) you will be fine and Lila and her staff will do everything physically possible to take care of you and your family! Thank you for making the event so relaxing! Everyone had a wonderful time!!!
