Iconic Santorini, a boutique cave hotel

A mountainside masterpiece in Imerovigli

If you could jump into a postcard of the Greek Isles, you might just land right on a stark white balcony at Iconic Santorini, a boutique cave hotel. Cascading down the cliffside from the quiet mountaintop village of Imerovigli, the chic boutique hotel offers jaw-slacking vistas from every angle and ensures that no design detail dares to detract from its top attribute.

Santorini’s famous white-and-turquoise color palette is on full display here, tastefully broken up by neutral-toned patterns and local greenery that enhance the island oasis vibe. Cave-inspired architecture keeps the stunning stay feeling like a naturally occurring part of the island terrain, albeit with shimmering infinity pools, sun-dappled lounge decks and other luxurious touches.

And if unobstructed ocean views and extra privacy weren’t sumptuous enough, Greek cuisine, a cave-like spa and anticipatory service elevate this Santorini stay to sophisticated heights.
Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Caldera vistas may be the star, but the sublime service plays a stirring supporting role. Attentive and anticipatory without being intrusive, the Iconic Santorini staff strikes a perfect balance that will leave you feeling cared for like Grecian royalty.
  • A collection of 19 cave suites is thoughtfully spaced across six levels of the luxury hotel, providing plenty of privacy throughout the spacious property.
  • Local touches have been strategically scattered throughout Iconic Santorini’s design details, from pillows boasting embroidered Grecian folk patterns to unique rustic key fobs sporting letters of the Greek alphabet.
  • Gratis breakfast is served daily alongside ocean views, either from the restaurant’s terrace or your room’s private balcony. Though offerings change with the seasons to showcase the freshest island produce, plates might include Greek yogurt with local pistachios and honey or Santorini-made cheese drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Carved into the bedrock, Iconic Spa’s grotto whirlpool and cave-like treatment rooms offer a transformative environment in which to soak up some locally inspired pampering from Greek skincare brand Ariadne Athens.

The Rooms

  • Cave-inspired accommodations are cozy and elegant rather than stuffy, thanks to sumptuous furnishings and tasteful island-themed decor. Think rounded whitewashed walls, driftwood accents and intricately embroidered cushions.
  • King-sized mattresses adorned with Coco-Mat bedding inspire a restful night’s sleep while spacious, mosaic-tiled showers equipped with full-sized Aesop toiletries create an indoor oasis for refreshing after a day spent in the island sun.
  • Those looking to up the luxury ante should book a Grotto or Caldera suite at the Santorini hotel. The former comes equipped with an indoor heated pool while the latter boasts a private outdoor plunge complete with sea views.
  • For the ultimate island escape, check into the aptly named Iconic Suite. The former village bakery — the room still sports the original bread oven — has an indoor and outdoor jetted pool as well as an ocean-view terrace equipped with outdoor dining space and a plush daybed for lounging in complete privacy.
