This ultra-luxe boutique hotel with sunset-view rooms overlooks the famous Santorini caldera.
Carved out of a clifftop and set on different levels, Grace Santorini is an architect’s dream. Sleek and minimalist, its white-washed colour scheme leaves the exceptional quality and spellbinding views to do the talking. After waking up and taking in the jaw-dropping scenery, enjoy a decadent late morning Champagne breakfast before spreading out on one of the double loungers and soaking up the sun. There’s an award-winning heated infinity pool, which runs along the hotel front and overlooks Skaros Fortress.
Light snacks and chilled cocktails can be enjoyed from the poolside bar. You might not want to eat too much during the day though, as dinner at the hotel restaurant is a real treat. On the clifftop, Varoulko Santorini is intimate and open-air and has magnificent views of the infinity pool, the caldera and the ocean. Indulge in Greek and Mediterranean creations from the daily menu or simply ask the chef to prepare a dish of your choice – accompanied by the signature Grace cocktail designed by renowned mixologist Salvatore Calabrese, of course. The 363 lounge is the perfect spot to soak up the famous Santorini sunsets.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation. Scattered down the hillside, with all mod cons and pure white décor from the walls to the crisp cottons, all of the rooms, suites and the villa have sunset views. And some of the rooms come with their own private plunge pool on the terrace.
On the caldera cliffs of Santorini, in a secluded spot 360m above sea level but just a mile from vibrant Fira
