Private Caldera vistas like the ones I enjoyed at Chic Hotel can work miracles on your soul
Every destination has its own secrets. I am talking about these things that only travel connoisseurs know and that’s why they always get to have a great time wherever they go. As far as Santorini is concerned, the golden rune is known to almost everybody. You have to stay at a place with a view to the Volcanic Isles and the Caldera in order to live the Santorini experience in full.
In my recent trip to this unique island, I had the privilege of such a view and even more than that. I was lucky enough to stay at Chic Hotel and have my own private space, a dreamy arched veranda with a Jacuzzi that overlooked the big blue of the Aegean Sea, the Skaros rock, and the white washed houses of Fira. It was a breathtaking image that changed colors throughout the day and you couldn’t ever have enough of it. Enjoying at the same time precious privacy, something very rare at the cliff side hotels of the island.
Chic Hotel Santorini is one of those hotels with a superb location that has been there for some decades now, but re-opened fully renovated just a year ago. Its upgraded image comes with a whole new approach to the concept of hospitality. Jacuzzis in every room, hidden pool with an unobstructed view, a sunbathing deck suspended from the cliff side, cave-like bathrooms, luxury comforts and amenities. Its spot remains enviable, being at 5 minutes walking distance from the island’s center.
Talking also about real interior goals. Decorated in a minimal contemporary Cycladic style all rooms feature a quiet palette of ochre and light blue tones as well as cutting edge design furniture.
Let me now describe a typical day in room no 7 of Chic Hotel Santorini. You wake in a heavenly comfortable bed, open your eyes to gaze the big blue of the Caldera. After a while you hear a knock on the door. It is your breakfast which you may enjoy privately in the balcony. Every evening you can select from a list of meals and beverages what you want for the next morning and at what time you want it. After a visit to the black sand beaches of the island and a walking tour at Fyra, you are ready to go back and enjoy the most idyllic hour. Imagine how blissful it feels watching the famous Santorini sunset from your personal heated Jacuzzi with a glass of wine in hand and reading a book or chatting till late at night under a starlit sky.
So what is it that one expects from a trip to Santorini? You want your eye and your mind to travel. you want to create some memories that will last for ever. You want to charge your batteries and come back to your routine revitalized.Room no 7 of Santorini Chic Hotel is the perfect spot to do it
