This Recently Renovated Hotel Overlooks Santorini’s Gorgeous Caldera

The renovation refreshed the rooms and added new fitness facilities and an outdoor lounge…

Carved into a cliff on the Greek island of Santorini and situated hundreds of feet above the volcanic Caldera crater, the iconic Grace Santorini hotel features all-white interiors and concrete floors reminiscent of traditional Greek homes. Each of its 21 rooms has ocean views and a network of zigzagging paths lead to the property’s infinity-edge pool.

Now following a multimillion-dollar renovation, the property is even more stunning than before. Refurbished rooms and suites feature bars with cocktail-making kits; handcrafted furniture and artwork; and bathrooms with double vanity units, marble-carved basins, and walk-in rain showers with mosaic walls.

There is also a new lounge and bar overlooking the Caldera; a new chef overseeing the Mediterranean-influenced menu at the on-site restaurant, Santoro; a new Pilates and yoga studio offering private sessions and several complimentary group classes; and a new health and wellness program that uses Apivita products, which are extracted from organic essential oils, pure honey, and plants. Treatments include a wine elixir facial, a traditional Greek olive oil massage, and outdoor sunrise yoga.

Next year, two new suites outfitted with private plunge pools and terraces will open, as well as a new full-service spa. The hotel is open for the season until November 1, and current room rates start at around $675 per night (breakfast and taxes included). (gracehotels.com)
