Luxury Quiet Santorini Boutique Hotel

Iconic Santorini: The Fairy Tale Deal

Do you remember how as a kid, and you’d read fairy tales that took place on beautiful faraway islands, with mesmerizing lookout caves on never-before-seen cliffs? Do you remember wondering if these places actually exist? Well, they do, and we’re sure of it. As a grown-up, you can visit Santorini - and that’s as close as it gets to that fairy tale setting. One of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea, with cliffs hanging above an underwater caldera crater, overlooking the turquoise waters, with white pebble beaches dispersed among little cubiform houses (the ones with the little blue roofs, like in Mamma Mia) - there’s really nothing else like it. And if one of the best boutique hotels in the region is offering limited-time-only 20% and 40% deals for early bookings, then there’s really no excuse.

Iconic Santorini has recently been recognized as the Best Boutique Hotel on a Global Level, and as the Best Small Hotel in Greece. It’s a one-of-a-kind cave hotel, sitting 1000 feet above the idyllic Greek waters, overlooking the quiet Imerovigli village. What's more is special pricing is available for the Iconic, Cliff, and Cave Suites, on top of the early booking discounts. 

The 19 residences are close enough to the main Santorini cities of Fira and Oia for you not to feel detached, but far away enough not to be overrun by tourists. And since children under the age of 14 are not allowed on the property, it’s the perfect quiet getaway for couples, and families who simply seek a little fairy-tale tranquility in their lives. Infinity pools, heavenly massages, fine local dining at the Pergola restaurant are only a few of the amenities of Iconic Santorini. And the fact that the hotel is literally carved inside a historic caldera is just a bonus.
