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 highly innovative, and the rooms are all spacious and feature all mod-cons, bespoke quality furniture and huge "monsoon" showers.
General manager Joseph Gaoutsis is passionate about his hotel and determined to showcase all that is best about Santorini. His team are exceptionally well-trained and chef Spiros is a creative whirlwind in the kitchen.
