The Wild was our final stop on our honeymoon trip to the Cyclades, and we saved the best for last. The location is breathtaking – set within a natural ampitheatre on a cliffside. As we stepped out of the lobby and peered over the tumbling cliffs at Kalafatis Beach below, it was a real pinch-me moment.

Flicking through Conde Nast’s infamous Gold list, I came across this beautiful new hotel, and I knew that it would make the ultimate honeymoon trip.
