Nestled high on the enchanting cliffs of Santorini, there’s a luxury gem of a hotel named Chromata. Belonging to Leading Hotels of The World group, Chromata Santorini is truly one of the most stunning properties you can rent on the island. With its iconic location, infinity pool overlooking the entire coastline and finest dining experiences, this cave hotel should make a cut to your bucket list.
Chromata is located in the town of Imerovigli, which is where the majority of luxury Santorini hotels are. Imerovilgi village, known as the “Balcony on the Aegean", is a place of charming restaurants, sweeping views and breathtaking sunsets. Although many people would not consider Imerovigli as it’s quite distant from the island’s hot spot- Oia, this small and picturesque place is one of the most beautiful in Santorini.
Imerovigli is much more quiet than Oia and you can enjoy it more especially during the peak months. As Oia streets tend to get completely packed and it’s hardly possible to find a good spot for sunset watching, Imerovigli is just the opposite. The town has multiple restaurants, blue-dome churches, white-wahsed houses and the views… oh my. The views here are truly jaw-dropping.
The distances from Imerovigli:
-Oia- 17 minute drive
-Santorini Airport- 12 minute drive
-Thira Town Centre- 9 minute drive
-Thira New Harbour- 24 minute drive
-Red Beach- 30 minute drive
Casually cascading down the cliff side, the sea-view rooms and suites in Imerovigli are all about luxury and romance in every detail. The cave-style rooms and villas blend perfectly with the traditional Santorini architecture as well as the surrounding views. The selection of rooms and villas is perfectly crafted for families and couples who come to Santorini to witness the very best of Greece.
The room options in Chromata include:
-Standard Double Room
-Superior Jetted Tub Suite
-Honeymoon Jetted Tub Suite
-Chromata Jetted Tub Suite
-Master Pool Suite
-Chromata Infinity Pool Suite
While all the rooms have an exceptional view of the Caldera, the more expensive options give you the luxury of a private hot tub or infinity pool. All rooms have a small balcony which is a perfect spot for watching the most spectacular sunsets over a glass of a complimentary local wine.
The suites in Chrimata are spacious and they keep cool temperature due to its cave and stone design. They have luxurious bathrooms equipped with hot tubs, cosy bedrooms and small lounge areas.
Chromata combines both- the finest dining experiences and the finest views. You can indulge in Japanese cuisine, signature cocktails and gourmet dining while staying overwhelmed by the panoramic vision of the Aegean Sea.
Although there are no spa services within the Chromata property itself, you can book the most relaxing treatments in its sister properties- Kirini Santorini and Katikies Garden.
A.SPA is embraced by the Earth and all of the spa cabins have a treatment oriented design and a concept based on the couples’ integration. Professional therapists and luxurious spa products are to pamper, relax, purify and unwind. Among the Mediterranean inspired baths and massages, there are couples’ sessions, feet washing rituals, rejuvenating facial and body treatments.
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
In order to preserve and protect the natural beauty of Greece, Katikies Hotels do their best to ensure sustainable and eco-friendly practices. They achieve it via daily activities, the selection of products and waste management. From their own kitchen garden and locally sourced menus, to the choice of materials and suppliers. For Chromata Santorini our planet is a priority.
The most spectacular amenity at Chromata is it’s very own infinity pool overlooking the entire of Caldera. As it’s lined with a pool bar, it turns into the most relaxing area within the property.
