Chromata Upstyle Hotel, Imerovigli greece
Ironically, Chromata in Greek means colour, and everything to do with this hotel is white, including the flowing linen uniforms of the staff, creating an ambience of tranquillity throughout. Ultra-modern and chic, it exceeds its 4-star grading, not only in appearance but in the extra touches such as the champagne on arrival, breakfast served on your balcony and the complimentary mobile phones given to guests for use during their stay.
An ideal choice for couples looking for a modern, stylish property and those who would appreciate the picture postcard views, inviting infinity pool and intimate fine dining. Not suited to those with mobility problems due to the steps or those with a fear of heights.
Incorporates reconstructed cave dwellings and angular buildings in a traditional white washed style with wooden doors and shutters. Buildings are staggered down the cliff side over 5 levels. All rooms have sea facing balconies or terraces of varying sizes.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
The a la carte restaurant offers fine dining in an intimate 4-table restaurant that opens out to a tiny terrace with romantic views. Ornate white wooden chairs and tables with glass tops are complimented by touches of purple in the woodwork and accessories. Small spa is built into a cave with a Jacuzzi and steam room.
Grounds are compact with no greenery which is common amongst the cliff side properties. Reception is outside under a shaded terrace where steep steps lead to all areas which offer magnificent uninterrupted views from the terraces.
The appealing infinity pool has walk-in entry, double sun loungers on its narrow surround and includes a cave area which it shares with the atmospheric pool bar.
Area Type: Cascading down the cliff side on the rim of the caldera, centrally located in Imerovigli and surrounded by similarly styled properties. There are a choice of restaurants, bars and small shops within a 5 minute walk, along with the bus stop for Fira which can also be reached by a 15 minute walk.
