Imerovigli, Santorini, £££££
The Minoans' loss was Santorini's gain for the volcanic explosion that wiped out their empire left behind an island of such scenic beauty that you can't fail to marvel. Grace Santorini enjoys the very best position on the island, right opposite Skaros rock, looking across the Aegean-filled caldera to the sunset. The hotel's design is very clever, and the rooms are all spacious and filled with high-tech mod-cons, bespoke quality furniture, huge, "monsoon" showers. The plunge pool on one's terrace is also very welcome. Joseph Gaoutsis, the General Manager, is passionate about his hotel and determined to showcase all that is best about Santorini. His team are exceptionally well-trained and positive too, whilst chef Spiros is a creative whirlwind in the kitchen.
