In February 2013 a truly stunning property in Santorini’s village of Imerovigli was acquired. After an extensive renovation on all rooms, suites, and public areas, then followed by a full refitting – Iconic Santorini, a boutique cave hotel was born! The Iconic Santorini Blog will showcase our lovely boutique cave hotel as well as the events and happenings on the remarkably beautiful island of Santorini.
When the future owners of Iconic Santorini visualized how the existing property could be updated, they actually looked to the past. Less than 60 years ago the elegant accommodations available today were functioning homes in the cliff side village of Imerovigli . The neighbourhood pathways still connect the hotel to the adjacent properties and what was once the village bakery is now The Iconic Suite, complete with the original stone baking oven.
A truly Iconic Santorini Blog…
To honour this history, the architectural and design firm of A&T Kontodimas, located in Athens was selected to design and execute the restoration. Brothers Alexis and Tasos Kontodimas are renowned for their work on private estates and quickly understood the opportunity to produce a very special hotel. Working with ownership and members of the Mantis Collection team, they have produced a comfortable, authentic and pleasant residential theme that is seen throughout the individual accommodations and public spaces.
