Hospitality America Earns A Coveted Award For New Iconic Santorini, A Boutique Cave Hotel:
"Greece’s Leading Boutique Hotel"

(Santorini, Greece, August 3, 2014) World Travel Awards has just unveiled the winners of its 2014 survey of the finest luxury hotels and spas on 6 continents and names the Iconic Santorini, a romantic cave hotel on the honeymoon island of Santorini as Greece’s Leading Boutique Hotel.


Iconic Santorini is an extraordinary boutique hotel carved into the island’s volcanic cliffs and situated 1,000 feet above the sparkling bay of the caldera.  The 22 air-conditioned rooms and suites are recreated from traditional island cliff homes and enhanced with spacious verandas overlooking one of the most awesome panoramas in Europe.

“Our location alone makes Iconic Santorini very special,” notes Chris Cargen, President of Hospitality America, “and now this much-coveted award by our hospitality peers comes as a gratifying acknowledgment that we do indeed fulfill our promise of refined style, world-class amenities and personal service.”   

The latest World Travel Awards attracted thousands of nominations from all over the globe and the final votes were cast by hundreds of travel agents, tour operators and well-traveled guests – people who really know what travel should be.  “To satisfy an audience like this you really have to stand out from the pack,” adds Hospitality America VP of Operations James St. John, “ and we accomplish this goal by providing exceptional experiences for honeymooners, romantics in general and travelers who are looking for an authentic experience in a fascinating destination.”

The stunning Iconic Santorini blends timeless Greek charm with today’s finest amenities, like a cliffside infinity pool designed in Greek Classic style, suites with private indoor jetted grotto pools, all-natural oversize COCO-MAT 4-layer beds, luxurious Aesop bath products, JBL sound systems, a tranquil wellness center with its own heated and jetted grotto pool, and a traditional Greek taverna with sky-box views of this unique island.  The concierge staff contacts guests ahead of their arrival to organize transfers from the island’s airport and set up reservations for in-demand tours of this fascinating and highly photogenic island.  As General Manager Ximena Diaz puts it: “This is what we mean by personal service, an almost laser-like focus on the wishes and dreams of our guests.”

Iconic Santorini is managed by Hospitality America and a proud member of the Mantis Collection of award-winning five-star properties around the world. That combination means guests can be sure of world-class service and a warm, friendly welcome.  For a gallery of enticing photographs and more details on suites and Lovers’ Escape packages, log on to
