Santorini is the peak destination in Greece and among the most cherished destinations in the Greek islands. There are few travel destinations on the planet that consolidate perfect shorelines, fabulous views, classical urban areas, great restaurants, and a share of the world’s finest wine. In any case, Santorini has this and more.
Situated in the Aegean Sea, in the Cyclades islands, Santorini Island was the location of one of the major volcanic blasts on the planet. What remains today are an underwater volcano and a caldera. Amazing towns have been constructed on the edge of this caldera, with Cycladic outline and marvelous sight to the ocean. Aside from the gigantic caldera towns, Santorini is also well-known for the romantic twilight, the volcano, ancient history and deluxe resorts, like the Iconic Santorini.
The Iconic Santorini is a distinctive boutique cave hotel, literally carved from Santorini’s volcanic caldera wall. It is situated right on the edge of the caldera, in the picturesque village of Imerovigli, the highest part of the island, and offers dramatic views of the caldera and the ancient volcano. It is just a short walk to the island’s capital city Fira and less than 20 minutes by car from Santorini Airport.
This exceptional and stylish residence is a haven of tranquility and combines breathtaking views, delicious Santorinian cuisine, luxury amenities, and warm Hellenic hospitality with mesmerizing sunsets. All accommodation options come with stunning views of the Aegean Sea and the volcano.
Each of the 19 enchanting residence captures the true spirit of the caldera, where traditional cave accommodations combine the finest in contemporary amenities and authentic Greek style. Rather than going contemporary like such a variety of different properties on the island, they have kept up the Cycladic design and styling.
Everything from the property’s design and furnishings, to the luxurious Aesop amenities and the heavenly all-natural COCO-MAT 4-layer beds are Greek inspired.
The hotel is run very uniquely and wants their guests to feel like they are visiting the home of a Greek friend rather than a tourist. The kitchen is open, and guests are even encouraged to pass by and speak with the passionate local chef, see what is being prepared that day and learn a thing or two about the authentic recipes passed down through his family’s generations. The chef keeps things simple by serving fresh authentic Greek cuisine using only the very best ingredients and products.
Breakfast is served to the dedicated terrace space of each residence with a choice of continental options as well as cooked breakfast served family style in a pan. The best part of breakfast at Iconic Santorini is that it can be enjoyed whenever desired throughout the day – an ideal service for honeymooners and those enjoying a long lie in while on vacation.
Service is paramount and warm Hellenic hospitality is extended to each and every valued guest, treating them as individuals while taking note of their every preference. When you finally have to catch your plane to go home, you leave like someone who has visited a Greek friend.
