The hike from Imerovigli town to the Santorini Grace is not for the faint of heart. A steep set of outdoor stairs leads guests to a pathway that winds down the cliff face, past various apartments and private villas, until they happen upon a contemporary gray and white façade with minimal signage. This was the same 149-step trail used by the donkeys and workmen that created the Santorni Grace, which was built entirely by hand and took roughly five years to complete once opened.
Located in the northwest of Santorini, about fifteen-minutes south of Oia, the Grace offers dramatic views over Santorini’s caldera and a contemporary design scheme that set it apart from the competition. Polished gray floors and monochromatic photographs of the surrounding landscape break up stark white interiors; windows opening up to the azure sea and sky offer pops of color. All of the hotel’s rooms and suites have terraces and nearly all come with a heated outdoor plunge pool with panoramic vistas. Certain suites boast steam showers, indoor baths and the property’s two-bedroom Villa includes its own spa, kitchen, wine cellar and swimming pool.
Though the Santorini Grace accepts children over the age of fourteen, the vibe is hip and sophisticated, catering to mostly couples. The core of the property is the long and uniquely shaped pool, which sits in front of a small cocktail bar and open-air chef’s kitchen. Here guests congregate around 8pm to watch spectacular sunsets over Oia town.
Who Should Stay
Couples or adults who favor a pristine room product, contemporary amenities, and dramatic caldera views over a highly convenient location.
