Jewel of Santorini


Santorini, Greece is known to be one of the most gorgeous romantic destinations in the world. Carved into one of the island's many majestic cliffs, you’ll find a luxury boutique hotel named Grace Santorini. The first thing you’ll notice about the hotel is that it has the perfect vantage point to view the famed Santorini sunsets that envelop the deep blue Aegean Sea, and the Cyclades Islands.

Designed by Greek studio Divercity Architects in collaboration with mplusm, Grace Santorini has 20 rooms that all face the same direction for optimal views. 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, bars, and restaurant.

Grace Santorini operates seasonally from mid-April mid-October. Rates per night vary from 375 to 1050 ($540 to $1500), depending on the room type and season.
