If you’re making last-minute honeymoon plans but aren’t sure yet where to go, the Iconic Santorini, a boutique “cave hotel” built into the island’s hillside, is giving couples reason to go Greek with the addition of two new packages that are seriously upping the romance ante. (With its cliffside setting overlooking the sapphire-hued Aegean Sea, we didn’t even think that was possible.) Read on to learn more about each.
Iconic Santorini Lovers’ Escape
Couples who pick this package will cozy up in the Iconic’s stunning new Cave Suite, which is set deep into the rock cliffside and features separate lounging areas, two bathrooms with glass showers, and—the best part—a broad terrace (shown above) with a raised, jetted pool overlooking a vast expanse of the Aegean Sea.
What’s included? A bottle of Moët & Chandon Champagne on arrival, daily breakfasts with complimentary mimosas, fresh fruit baskets every morning, an in-suite floral arrangement, a romantic candlelit dinner for two featuring Greek specialties with a bottle of wine from Santorini, complimentary mineral water and sodas throughout your stay, a half-day escorted sightseeing tour of the island, and pickup and drop-off from the island’s airport.
Package price: 1,699 Euros (approximately $1,915.87) per suite, per night (hotel taxes included).
Iconic Santorini Honeymoon Retreat: The Pinnacle of Pampering
To celebrate your special day in supreme style—and utmost privacy—spoil yourselves with a stay in the Iconic’s Cliff Suite, which is tucked away on its own exclusive level of the hotel. The suite’s features are similar to those of the Cave Suite, but additional amenities include a candlelit indoor grotto pool and an outdoor jetted-pool that’s suspended from the volcanic caldera wall. (Hello, Instagram envy!) Offering some of the most breathtaking views to be enjoyed from the hotel, the Cliff Suite has two private wraparound balconies that are outfitted with sun loungers and additional outdoor seating (perfect for a sunset dinner à deux).
The Honeymoon Retreat package includes the same features as the Lovers’ Escape, with the addition of a couple’s massage and a picnic box for island trips. And in lieu of that half-day island tour, you’ll get a two-day car rental (gas and insurance are extra) to explore the island at your own pace.
Package price: 1,999 Euros (approximately $2,254.19) per suite, per night (hotel taxes included). A three-night minimum stay is required for both packages, which are valid May 1 through September 30, 2016.
