DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! SUMMER ESCAPE AT GRACE HOTEL, SANTORINI

It’s unmistakably one of the most romantic places I have ever seen until now, and even though I am not planning a wedding yet, Grace Santorini would be my top choice for spending the honeymoon. The hotel delivers the WOW factor on so many levels, from the kindness of their staff to the amazing cuisine, bespoke facilities, beautiful rooms and, not at least, the amazing location providing the best views you can get at the very famous sunsets from Santorini.

The summer season will not be over in Santorini until late October, so there is still time to make plans for one of the most romantic vacations you have ever dreamed, at the amazing Grace Hotel.

I have to confess that I am not the type of traveller which spends their vacation only in one place as I get bored very quickly and laying in the sun is not always my cup of tea. On the other hand, visiting Santorini and spending a couple of hours for lunch at Grace Hotel proved me wrong, as I could never get tired of the view. God, what a view!

I promised then to our wonderful host Georgia Pantazi that I would be back next year and I intend to do so, as the feeling you get from here is unique and liberating. If you have a hectic life, then Grace is better than “Headspace” (the yoga meditation application from my iPhone). If you are living a beautiful love story, then Grace will feel like Heaven on Earth.

Not to mention that hotel has received global critical acclaim and was listed in the Condé Nast Traveller Gold List 2012 for Best Location in Europe.  

Grace Santorini combines elegance, first-class service and the finest food and drink with a sense of privacy and serenity. Perfectly situated to enjoy the classic Caldera view that travellers to the island seek – Imerovigli lies in the high cliffs in front of the island’s other iconic emblem, Skaros Rock, which itself offers an extraordinary sea view.

Accommodation includes Luxury Suites, Deluxe Rooms with personal plunge pools, Superior Suites facing the sea and Junior SuitesBespoke by Grace is a unique service I have to mention, as it offers a truly personalised in-room experience, by allowing you to customise numerous aspects of your stay before you arrive. Bespoke in-room options span a choice of pillows, room fragrances, bathroom products and special romantic touches such as Champagne every evening.

Meanwhile, anyone staying here need look no further for the perfect restaurant in Santorini. The outdoor dining terrace is the envy of many, not just around Imerovigli but on the whole island. Dine among the stars with an uninterrupted Caldera view – it’s what the ultimate holiday or honeymoon was made for. And the cuisine, freshly prepared with local ingredients, is delicious too!

Grace Santorini completes my personal list of the best hotels in the world along with the Aman Canal Grande in Venice, Oberoi New Delhi and chic Sofitel So from Bangkok, only to name a few.

The Rooms &The Villa

The Rooms
The hotel’s accommodation includes sea-facing Superior and Junior Suites, Deluxe Rooms with private plunge pools and a range of Luxury Suites like the Honeymoon Suites or the luxurious Grace Suite.

The Grace Suite
It epitomises what people look for in a luxury suite in Santorini with a Caldera view. This perfect accommodation for couples features a large, private terrace with comfortable sun loungers and an enticing plunge pool. This Suite also has an innovative and unique lava rock feature in front of a panoramic window, which adds to the privacy feel and creates wonderful light displays as the sunlight filters through. Glorious views of the famed Aegean sunset over the Caldera envelope guests in an atmosphere of romance and grace. A king-size bed takes pride of place in the stylish bedroom while the ultra-luxurious en-suite bathroom features twin vanity units as well as a "hammam" steam bath and a separate interior plunge pool with views to the horizon.

The ultimate in Santorini luxury accommodation is the The Villa. Revel in the unmatched privacy of your own 400 sq m luxury suite and private spa in Imerovigli– perfect for couples.
