The unique environment has become a favorite photo shoot location for top photographers. Dramatic photo spreads of Korakia have graced the pages of such leading publications as Architectural Digest, HIP Hotels and Cond? Nast Traveler as well as Vogue, Elle, Marie-Claire and their European counterparts. The New York Times has called the Korakia One of the sexiest hotels in America.
