Carved into Santorini’s volcanic caldera and perched 300m above the Aegean Sea, the Iconic Santorini has just scored an award from Mr and Mrs Smith. The luxury boutique hotel’s Cliff Suite came in at #6 in the 2015 list of 10 Sexiest Bedrooms in the World for good reason. The Smiths explain, “The Cliff Suite, with its French doors, Juliet balcony and indoor grotto pool … has bags of personality and a natural charm.”
This award will join the many other trophies Iconic Santorini has won over the two years since its establishment.
While the hotel is currently closed, it will reopen May 2016 with some exciting new editions. The award-winning Cliff Suite will boast a new jetted pool on the balcony, so guests can soak in some bubbles while they soak up the views. In addition to the new pool, the Cliff Suite will also welcome lovers with a candlelit indoor grotto pool, bouncy COCO-MAT 4-Layer bed, headboards fashioned from the branches of native trees plus many modern-day essentials like a JBL sound system with iPod dock, a flat-screen TV and air-conditioning.
“We are thrilled to receive this coveted award,” says James St John, Vice President of Operations, Hospitality America. “It underscores what our visiting friends have been telling us: they have trouble deciding which suite to check into because they’re all so romantic… and sexy, of course.”
All of Iconic Santorini’s 19 rooms and suites echo the island’s unique style of whitewashed vaulted caves restyled to blend timeless Greek charm with today’s finest amenities. Other highlights include a cliff-side infinity pool and multi-level sunning deck, a tranquil massage facility with its own jetted grotto pool, a fitness centre and a traditional Greek taverna with priceless views of the ancient volcano.
Vella Ramasawmy, General Manager explains, “Our philosophy is to offer our visitors a taste of Greek culture and hospitality with impeccable service – in other words, rewarding vacations for honeymooners, wedding parties, romantics in general and travellers looking for an exceptional experience.”
