Photos of Grace all start with the infinity pool, and for good reason—it’s the largest along the caldera and has stellar views of the sea and Skaros Rock. The rooms are nothing to sniff at, either, as they have a super-cool minimalist look that’s mostly white with the occasional dot of color—all the better to highlight the bright blue of the sea. If you can, splurge on a room with a plunge pool so you can sip champagne and gaze out to sea in privacy (the Grace suite has an additional pool indoors). The hotel’s “Bespoke by Grace” program is a nice touch: you’ll get an email after booking that asks for your preferences for pillows, room fragrances and bath products, and once you’re at the hotel you can choose from a number of interactive experiences centered around gastronomy, photography and wellbeing. Santoro, the in-house restaurant, has a Mediterranean menu of sea bass moussaka and fresh oysters, but it’s the champagne lounge that takes the cake. Cocktails and bubbly from the well-curated selection are the aperitifs of choice while watching the sunset.
In the Area
While it’s tempting to float all day in the infinity pool, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy during your vacation. Spend an afternoon at the hot springs (though wear a black swimsuit as the minerals will stain light colors). The hotel can organize a boat to take you there. The Santorini Arts Factory is worth the half-hour drive south, since the refurbished factory hosts stimulating art exhibits and lively musical and dance performances. Closer to home, Anogi is just a few minutes’ walk and serves up fabulously fresh seafood in a homey atmosphere. Grab a table on the patio in good weather. For lively nightlife, Casablanca Soul is the place to be thanks to live music, DJs, and solid cocktails.
How to Get There
After careful searching all the winter we finally booked this marvellous boutique hotel to spend our holiday. Upon arrival we were greeted with much warmth and attention and led to our room. We were amazed by the cozy atmosphere created by the pale colours of the walls and furnishing. The view from our room to the sea was imaginary! The deep blue colour of the sea was exactly as in photos. Time at this hotel runs smoothly as every staff member was doing its best to make our accomodation excellent to detail. I highly recommend this place.
We stayed for 4 wonderful days in Grace hotel and they were not enough to admire the astonishing view to Caldera. It is the best spot to admire the sunset from your private balcony away from the noisy places. The hotel itself is located in Imerovigli opposite the Skaros rock. Our room was very modern and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious and well served by the very polite staff. The swimming pool was big overlooking the beautiful Caldera, so swimming and sunbathing under the hot sun was great pleasure. Thank you Grace for making our holidays unique and unforgettable!
Unfortunately this hotel is a case study in poor management. With a view to die for you would think this hotel would be a no brainer. Service here was the worse in on our three week holiday in Europe. Staff has not been trained properly and management failed us constantly. Many amazing hotels within 5 minutes walking with nicer rooms great food and professional staff. No reason to stay here other than view and there are so many choices with the same view. Sorry about negative review but it was well earned.
