PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Iconic Santorini’s cave-sheltered rooms, pergola patios and sun-drenched terraces tumble down the cliffside in Imerovigli village, the highest point on the island. This traditional caldera-facing setting has been transformed with a perfect pool, an intimate spa and lashings of bright white and blue.

We look forward to hosting you in the future when the world is a much safer and happier place. We appreciate you, thank you for understanding.

SPA

Have those last travel knots and tensions eased in the snug spa, housed in an atmospheric cave hewn from the bedrock. There’s a small heated whirlpool in the grotto and an intimate treatment room for holistic massages using locally produced oils, best enjoyed à deux.

POOL

On a decked sun terrace, the 11-metre heated saltwater infinity pool is sheltered under an arch at one end and seems to melt into the Aegean at the other, where a whirlpool section offers front-row seats for dazzling caldera views.

ALSO

The smallest design details have been considered here; whether its a pillow embroidered with traditional Grecian folk patterns in your room, a complementary assortment of plants arranged in the pots lining the pools, or the key fobs emblazoned with letters of the Greek alphabet. All the more reason to do several sweeps of your new surroundings.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Over-14s only. Non-ADA Compliant: This is a traditional Santorini cave hotel located on the face of the caldera, connected internally and externally to the caldera walkway by stairs. This fact, prevents the property from being ADA compliant.

Rooms 

With French doors opening onto a private terrace and separate Juliet balcony, the Cliff Suite is bright and airy, with a rather special indoor grotto pool; sink into the rocking chair outside to take in splendid sea views. If you want to make a splash, book the Iconic Suite, with its two pools (one indoor, one outdoor, both with powerful jets) and day-bed-strewn terrace overlooking the sea. It was once the village bakery, and still houses the original bread oven. Each room, named after a letter of the Greek alphabet, sports laid-back and tactile decor: polished cement and volcanic rock floors, decorative headboards made from branches and vast Coco-mat beds for a naturally blissful sleep.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

White tables for two with traditional taverna chairs and blue banquettes sit in the shade at Pergola Restaurant, looking out to sea. Chef Kostas and his team rustle up typical Greek dishes and Mediterranean-inspired fare, using fresh herbs and produce from the garden, and will happily welcome you into the kitchen to watch them work their magic. Plates of freshly fried Greek cheeses, fava bean purée and cherry-stuffed, nut-crusted croquettes are easily shareable; linger over traditional dishes such as moussaka and tender veal in Santorinian tomatoes and aubergine. Light lunches are served poolside; the menus change depending on what's been purchased fresh from the market that day. Don’t miss breakfast, a feast of fresh-baked bread, locally sourced honey, home-made jams and marmalades, creamy Greek yoghurt, seasonal fruit and a range of hot dishes.

Liquid Bliss 

The restaurant’s caldera views are to die for, particularly when the moon is out; sip on local wines to chilled Café del Mar beats under the pergola.

Experience the Extraordinary 

If the sweeping vistas from Iconic Santorini’s terraces aren’t quite enough for you, follow the steep trail to Skaros Rock, a short walk away from the hotel. Locals say this spot, on the ruins of a 15th-century fortress built to protect Santorini from pirate attacks, has the most romantic sunset views on the island. The capital Thira, with its boutiques, jewellery shops and museum, is just a 20-minute walk away. If you want to explore further afield, the hotel will happily point you to the best local hiking trails or arrange sunset winery tours and boat trips to the volcano and hot springs.

Transportation 

Iconic Santorini is a short walk from Gali Square in the picturesque caldera-facing village of Imerovigli.

Planes 

International flights to Santorini usually connect via Athens, though some airlines also provide direct flights to the UK, particularly in the high season from June to September. On request, the Smith24 Team can book flights or transfers for you; call on 03333 318 506 24 hours a day.

Automobiles 

A stay at Iconic Santorini is perfectly enjoyable without a car (Thira, the capital, is a 20-minute walk away). If you plan on exploring further afield, there’s secure public parking a three-minute walk away from the hotel (€2 for 24 hours).

Other 

Athinios port can be reached by boat from Athens/Piraeus and other locations such as Mykonos or Crete; see www.gtp.gr. The fast boat from Piraeus is three and a half hours, but others are slower, so it’s definitely worth looking at the timetable.
