Grace Santorini Boutique Hotel, Imerovigli greece
An ultra modern, chic property with spectacular views over the caldera to neighbouring islands, making dining on the terrace a truly romantic experience. The highlight is the wide infinity pool, the largest in the resort which rarely becomes crowded due to a further pool. Many of the rooms host their own plunge pools as well.
For the most discerning adults looking for a large contemporary property in a tranquil location. Not suited to those with mobility problems due to the amount of steep steps.
Single storey cubic blocks, steeply terraced over 9 levels down the rock face. Designed in typical local style with white washed walls, grey woodwork, archways and barrelled roofs.
All rooms have a spacious sea view terrace or balcony. Suites feature a plunge pool, as do many of the standard deluxe rooms, although not all offer complete privacy.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
A metallic reception built from black volcanic rock with silver sculptures, a plasma TV and concrete seating. The indoor restaurant is cosy and ultra modern with metallic decor and funky lighting.
Grounds are accessed by steep steps with limited greenery. Both pools have walk-in and metal-stepped access and separate pool bars with white furnishings. The attractive infinity pool features dining areas in alcoves built into the cliff face.
Sunbeds around the pools are minimal, but there is another more spacious sunbathing terrace on the level below with double-canopied loungers. Various seating terraces with either modern metal or more traditional wooden furnishings are spread throughout.
Area Type: Tumbling down the cliff side on the edge of the caldera, 300 metres above sea level, in a quieter part of Imerovigli and surrounded by similarly styled properties. A 15th century church is below and opposite is the rock of Skaros with its Venetian castle ruins. There is a choice of restaurants, bars and small shops a 5 to 10 minute walk away along with the bus stop for Fira which can be reached by a 20 minute walk.
