- Also, on the same website, we can offer you, as an option, some Additional Services (such as your transfer from and to Santorini Airport, personalized welcome packages in our Accommodation, etc.).
- Below, there is a field where you can submit some of your further personal information (postal address, city/region, the Prefecture or State of origin, Postal Code, the company/organization to which you belong, the purpose of your trip), and there is also a blank field, where you can give us special instructions or requests. Completing this field is optional and aims to serve you better and in a more personalized way. We shall do our best to satisfy these special needs. However, please note that this depends on our availability.
- Furthermore, on the same website on your right, there is a summary of the Services that we are going to provide during your stay in our Accommodation, according to the Reservation Package you have selected, while below the Total Reservation Value is displayed in bold ("Total Reservation Amount").
- From our side, we shall check the validity of your credit/debit/prepaid card, and then we shall send you the Booking Confirmation to the e-mail address you have indicated, within three (3) days from the submission of your reservation request or, if there is a significant reason, as soon as possible (subject to the provisions of Article B.1.2. of the Terms).
- We shall charge the Total Reservation Value, within the deadline stated in the Booking Confirmation (depending on your Reservation Package) and, in any case, until you depart from the Accommodation. We emphasize that any bank charges that may arise during the payment of the Total Reservation Value and the Tourism Fee are borne exclusively by you so that the final amount we collect corresponds to the amount of the Total Reservation Value and the current Tourism Fee.
- Please note that if you receive any Additional Services during your stay at the Accommodation (other than those included in the Total Reservation Value), you shall be charged according to the price list provided in the form inside your Suite. You can pay the Additional Service, either in cash (taking into account the respective legal restrictions) or through your credit/debit/prepaid card, upon completion of the service or your departure from our Accommodation (check-out).
A3.1 Payment of the Total Reservation Value through bank transfer.
- We provide you with the opportunity to repay the Total Reservation Value also through a bank transfer. In such a case, you should:
- contact us, so that: (a) we can announce you the IBAN of our bank account, (b) give us your details, and (c) indicate the Suite you wish, clarifying which Reservation Package you have chosen, so that we can send you the Booking Confirmation. Then, you should
- pay the Total Reservation Value:
- at least thirty-one (31) days prior to your scheduled arrival at the Accommodation, if you have selected the "VIP Rate" Reservation Package or
- the same day, if you have selected the "Special Offer" Booking Package.
You should note that any costs incurred during this transfer are borne solely by you.
- Only after you have paid the Total Reservation Value on time and in full, we shall send you the Booking Confirmation at your email address. Therefore, if you do not make this payment promptly, it shall not be possible for us to enter into a Hotel Services Agreement.
We emphasize that this subsection (A3.1) contains more specific content than our other Terms. Consequently, if you choose bank transfer as a method of repayment of the Total Reservation Value, this subsection shall be applied, and, in case of contradiction with the Terms, the terms of this subsection (A3.1.) shall prevail. With the prejudice of the above, the Terms shall remain fully in force.
Α4. Your stay in our Accommodation.
- On the date of your scheduled arrival, you must have your identity card (if you are a resident of the European Union), or your passport (in any other case), as well as the credit/debit/prepaid card you indicated during the reservation process. Please note that if you do not show us the above card, we shall refund the Total Reservation Value on this card, and you shall have to re-pay it via a new credit/debit/prepaid card. Otherwise, you won't be able to complete your check-in. Then, we shall deliver your Suite (along with its key), not earlier than two o'clock in the evening (14:00).
- After the completion of your check-in, you shall be able to use (except for the Suite) all the common areas of the Accommodation intended for our guests. Please note, however, that no more individuals may stay in the Suite than what you have indicated to us at the time of your booking unless you notify us promptly (at least three days before your arrival), and provided that this is objectively possible, based on the specifications of your Suite and the availability of our Accommodation. In any case, we will make every effort to serve you.
- On the date of your departure, you must evacuate your Suite and hand us its key no later than eleven o'clock in the morning (11:00 a.m.). Otherwise, you shall have to pay additional charges, as specified in Articles B.2.4, B.2.5., and B.2.6.
Α5. Booking Cancellation - No show - Early departure.
Our policy for a booking cancellation or no-show at our Accommodation on the due date varies, depending on the Reservation Package you have selected.
- If you have chosen the "VIP Rate" Reservation Package, then:
- up to thirty-one (31) days prior to your arrival you can cancel your reservation free of charge, without invoking any reason. The above deadline does not include the date you received the Booking Confirmation, as well as the date of your check-in. We shall refund you the total amount we received from you within fourteen (14) days unless there is a significant reason, so we shall make every effort to refund you as soon as possible. Please note that we may delay to refund you for reasons beyond our control (e.g., due to procedural obstacles from the banking institutions involved). We shall execute the above return using the same payment method you used for the original transaction. In any case, we shall make every effort not to charge you with any additional costs for the refund (without prejudice to any discrepancy that may arise due to the exchange rate). Also, up to thirty-one (31) days before your arrival, you can modify your reservation without any additional charge. However, you should keep in mind that there may not be a Suite available on the new dates, and, therefore, we may not be able to serve you.
- If you cancel your reservation within thirty-one (31) days of your scheduled arrival, and this cancellation is due to any reason (except for an objective and proven Force Majeure Event, as defined in Article D.6.), we shall charge you with the Total Reservation Value (excluding the value of the Additional Services).
- If you do not cancel your reservation in time and you do not show up on the scheduled arrival date (as specifically provided for in the Booking Confirmation), you shall be charged with the Total Reservation Value (excluding the value of the Additional Services).
- If you leave the Accommodation before your scheduled departure date, without invoking any objective and proven Force Majeure Event (as defined in Article D.6.), we shall charge you the Total Reservation Value as long as the value of any other Additional Service you received.
- If you have selected the "Special Offer" Booking Package, then:
- given that the Nightly Rate offered in this Reservation Package is highly preferential, if you cancel your reservation at any time, after receiving the Booking Confirmation for any reason (except for an objective and proven Force Majeure Event, as defined in Article D.6.), you shall not be entitled to a refund. Also, after receiving the Booking Confirmation, it is impossible to modify your reservation, for any reason.
- If you leave the Accommodation before your scheduled departure date, without invoking any objective and proven Force Majeure Event (as defined in Article D.6.): (i) you shall not be entitled to any refund, (ii) and you shall be bound to repay the value of any other Additional Service you received.
Α6. Our commitments, in case of overbooking.
- We make every effort to serve you in the best possible way. However, there may be an error in our information systems that can lead to the "overbooking" phenomenon; that is, we are likely to unwillingly accept more than one booking requests for the same Suite and the same dates.
- In such a case, we shall undertake, at our own expense, to provide you with another Suite, in another hotel on our island, of the same or superior attributes as the Suite you had booked, with the same Services as the ones you selected. We shall also take care of your transfer to the other hotel without charging you.
- In case we fail to provide you with a stay having the above specifications, then we shall offer you the right to visit our Accommodation, for the same number of nights, and enjoy the same Services, like the ones you had chosen, on dates of your choice (Open Voucher). You may use your Open Voucher within twelve (12) months from the time of your scheduled departure. If you do not wish to use the Open Voucher, we shall refund you the Total Reservation Value to the credit/debit/prepaid card you indicated, without charging you (without prejudice to any discrepancies that may arise due to exchange rate). The above refund shall be executed within fourteen (14) calendar days unless a significant reason occurs, so we shall try to refund you as soon as possible.
- However, if we provide you with a stay of the same or higher specifications in another hotel, and you refuse it, we do not bear any responsibility. In such a case, the provisions of Article A.5. shall apply proportionally (regarding your no-show at our Accommodation).

However, we shall make every effort to inform you as soon as possible and shall try to find the best way to serve you. However, if the execution of the Hotel Services Provision Agreement becomes impossible, the provisions of article A.6.3 shall apply proportionally.
6.3 In case you are affected by a Force Majeure Event, and that enforces you to terminate the Hotel Services Agreement, you must notify us promptly in writing and send us all available proof, which certifies: (a) the occurrence and nature of this event and (b) that its duration shall obligate you to cancel your trip to our Accommodation. From our side, we shall assess this information as soon as possible and inform you if the incidents you invoke constitute an objective Force Majeure Event. In such a case, the provisions of Article A.6.3 shall apply, mutatis mutandis. If we reasonably consider that the incidents you invoke are incomplete or unproven, or do not objectively constitute a Force Majeure Event, then you shall be fully liable for any non-compliance with these Terms. Therefore, you may either abide by the Hotel Services Agreement, either request its termination, in which case the provisions of Article B.5.3 shall apply.
6.4 This Article applies to each Force Majeure Event unless extraordinary circumstances occur, such as a statutory provision, which shall compel us to act differently, e.g., if a Force Majeure Event (such as pandemic) affects a wide geographic area. In this case, we shall publish special terms to our Website to inform you how we shall handle this event, and these special terms shall prevail over the present Terms. From your part, you must: (a) visit our Website to be informed about our special terms, (b) or contact us to guide you further.
Article 7. Requests and Complaints Management.
We are always willing to listen to every complaint and satisfy every request you may have. You can submit your complaints/requests (a) via letter to our Accommodation's address (White Pearl Villas, Oia, Santorini, PC 84702), (b) via e-mail to the form posted on the Website, at the field: www.whitepearlvillas.com/contact/, (c) via email to [email protected], (d) via telephone at +30 22860 71065. We are committed to responding reasonably to your complaints and requests. You can expect our response within three (3) days of our receiving a complaint/request (unless there is a specific and unpredictable reason hindering us respond in time, so we shall answer you as soon as possible).
Article 8. Miscellaneous.
8.1 By accepting the Terms, you guarantee that you are at least eighteen (18) years old and that you have the legal capacity to enter into binding contracts.
8.2 Our failure to exercise any of our rights under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such rights. Respectively, our waiver from a specific claim shall not constitute a waiver from any future similar claim. No waiver of our rights shall be considered valid unless it is in writing.
8.3 If any Term becomes void, for whatever reason, this doesn't affect the validity of the remaining Terms, which shall continue to be binding at their valid part.
8.4 These Terms set forth our entire agreement and supersede all prior agreements, arrangements, and understandings, oral or written, between us on the subject matter hereof. However, if special terms are agreed between us in writing, or a significant reason occurs, forcing us to publish special terms on our Website, and a contradiction arises between the specific terms and these Terms, the specific terms shall prevail.
8.5 You acknowledge that you have not relied on any of our statements, commitments, or promises to enter into the Hotel Services Agreement.
8.6 We reserve the right to amend the Terms at any time if a significant reason occurs, such as change of applicable law, our compliance with a judicial or arbitral decision, a Force Majeure Event, etc. At the time you submit a request for a reservation to our Accommodation or use our Website in any way, you are subject to our current policies and Terms unless any amendments to these Terms have become mandatory retroactively.
8.7 These Terms were compiled in Greek and then translated into English. Consequently, in case of contradiction between the Greek and the English text, the Greek version will prevail.
8.8 These Terms are governed by Greek law. We shall make every endeavor to resolve amicably any disputes, or disagreements, regarding the interpretation, validity, or compliance with the Terms. If any dispute arises between us, you can contact the local Amicable Settlement Committee, the Consumer Ombudsman, or any other body provided by the Greek legislation, competent for an amicable out-of-court settlement (including Mediation). If no out-of-court agreement is reached, the courts of Athens have the exclusive jurisdiction for resolving all our disputes. The applicable law is Greek.
