In the lively town of Imerovigli, on Greece’s most photogenic island, a stunning boutique hotel nests some three hundred metres above the famous caldera—its curved shapes dramatically carved out from the craggy cliff.
It’s Santorini Grace—a hotel whose award-winning design injects contemporary edginess to the rustic Cycladic style, and whose low-key architecture allows the landscape to take the centre stage.
The all-white interiors with brushed concrete floors bear an unmistakable trademark of the whitewashed Santorinian houses.
Like in Santorini’s traditional yposkafa “cave” dwellings, the interiors are carved out of concrete and stone, providing curved alcoves, benches, storage, bed platforms, and tables.
In fact none of the furniture is free-standing—they are moulded into alcoves instead.
Each room is uniqely styled and includes all the expected luxuries: kingsize beds, crisp linens, goose-down summer duvets, a pillow menu and latest technology. Most of the suites have private terraces with plunge pools offering glorious panoramic views over the caldera.
The cuisine at Grace combines fresh local ingredients with carefully selected imported products—with emphasis on a healthy balance.
Meals are served to the backdrop of the wonderful views, on the cliff-top terrace or in the airy restaurant—and by the infinity pool in the evenings.
The unique, colour-changing lights in the pool, lit at night, add to the natural beauty of the night-time scenery.
