In a world where natural beauty abounds, simplicity of design and clean aesthetics create a luxuriant aura embodying refined taste and exclusivity. 'Less is more' is an adage that usually speaks for itself and in the case of the Sun Rocks Santorini, a 'couples only' haven perched high on the caldera cliffs in Santorini, personifies it perfectly. Making the most of its natural setting the hotel literally spills over the steep cliffs with whitewashed domed roofs and grey painted verandas scattered on different levels coming to rest on a boutique pool deck far below. The cubistic shaped rooms with their smoothed rounded surfaces evoke the unique essence of Santorini; this and the awe-inspiring vistas cannot be adequately described in images or words, nor can the romanticism which captivates you when you are there, for this really is the ultimate honeymoon hotel.
Without the chatter of children the peace and quiet is sublime. Shaded terraces become heavenly retreats where time slows down as you casually observe cruise ships manoeuvring in slow motion, hundreds of feet below you in the bay. Your room becomes a cool retreat from the searing mid-day sun with the whitewashed surfaces and luxurious white cottons soothing on the eyes and soul. In the evening a gentle breeze ruffles your hair as you settle down to watch yet another stunning sunset from the privacy of your own terrace. With hunger beaconing you take your partner to the private Elea Restaurant perched on a rooftop terrace overlooking the bay. A pergola supported by rounded pillars shrouded with stretched linen panels creates a cosy intimate atmosphere for the two tables that are set facing the dark abyss; the views are to die for. With a choice of gourmet Mediterranean cuisine and signature Greek dishes all prepared from locally sourced ingredients, the Sun Rocks Santorini's chef busies himself turning your order into culinary works of art. As you drain your glass and savour the last drops of the dry earthy wine, you realise you have everything before you, your partner, a magical setting and another day in paradise.
