Located in the beautiful setting of Imerovigli in the northwest of the island, high above the Caldera, the Grace Santorini is the perfect vantage point from which to view the famed Santorini sunsets that envelop the Aegean Sea, and the Cyclades Islands.
This graceful boutique property with its individually styled suites and rooms, appeals to those seeking a relaxing and romantic escape.
The hotel has two beautiful swimming pools including a new infinity pool offering uninterrupted views.
There are 20 rooms total at the Santorini Grace and all face the same direction for optimal views. Some have private plunge pools, some are honeymoon suites with his and hers sinks in the bathroom. The hotel is sprawled out over several different levels playing on the "cave" aesthetic.
While there are nooks and alcoves for privacy, there is a general communal vibe amongst everyone lounging by the pool, or the bars, or in the restaurant. Only recently opened in 2009, The Santorini Grace has already been given many accolades and awards: Shortlisted in the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards 2011, Included in Tatler Travel Guide's 101 Best Hotels in the World, 2011, Shortlisted for The European Hotel Design Awards, 2010, Selected for Conde Nast Traveller's Hot List of the World's Best New Hotels, 2009, and at the World Travel Awards, it won Greece's Leading Boutique of 2009.
