A PICTURESQUE SANCTUARY PERCHED ABOVE THE AEGEAN SEA
A Cliff-Top Retreat in Santorini - Whitewashed abodes, cobalt-domed churches and black- and red-sand beaches mark the isle of Santorini, an alluring Mediterranean paradise mired in mythology.
Believed to be the remaining link to the Lost City of Atlantis, rest in splendor during a luxurious stay in our clifftop retreat in Imerovigli, a village home to Santorini’s most emblematic views. Legend has it Euphemus, son of Poseidon, created the island following a dream where he made love to a nymph - and after you enjoy your first sumptuous sunset from our infinity pool overlooking the Caldera, you will experience for yourself how easy it is to become entangled in the spell of Santorini.
Designed in the spirit of the Mediterranean’s laidback seaside lifestyle, the spacious Villa’s look blurs the indoors and outdoors and comprises clean lines, whitewashed furniture and luxurious natural materials. The retreat is equipped with unique amenities like its own spa with a traditional hammam, full kitchen, swimming pool, wine & cigar cellar and dedicated butler. Villa guests can reach true indulgence with exclusive experiences like sunset yoga on the private terrace, cooking classes in the state-of-the-art kitchen or massages and facials in the spa.
Settle into the relaxed Santorini lifestyle as you sink into your king-size bed, draped in silky linens with a pillow menu of seven sumptuous options. With an in-room coffee maker, savor your morning cup while seated at your natural wood reading desk, plush all-white sofa, or private outdoor terrace, an expansive seating area with a heated plunge pool that opens to stunning panoramic views of the half-moon bay caldera and towering Skaros Rock, a conical peninsula harboring one of the island’s most impressive fortressed ruins.
Sensual sophistication meets seaside splendor in our luxury suites, some featuring a hammam bath, spacious terraces with unobstructed views of the Caldera, and outdoor plunge pools to total almost 90 square meters of indoor-outdoor space.
When you catch dawn's first golden rays from the outdoor terrace of our villa, you'll quickly see why legends say Santorini was formed by the Gods. Perfect for extended stays, our 400-square-meter luxury villa is fit for Zeus himself, offering space and discretion along with access to unparalleled amenities. Equipped with a full kitchen, dining area, swimming pool, and expansive outdoor terrace, our villa can be either used as the ultimate one-bedroom honeymoon suite, or as a two-bedroom suite.
A MICHELIN-AWARDED VOYAGE OF TASTE AT THE HEART OF SANTORINI’S STUNNING IMEROVIGLI
Ocean view restaurant - Beloved Greek and Mediterranean flavors get an inspired makeover at the hands of culinary genius and Michelin-awarded chef Lefteris Lazarou. In keeping with Greek gastronomic tradition, at Varoulko Santorini wonderful tastes such as the chef’s signature squid with pesto Genovese or the crayfish tartar with fresh basil and zesty yuzu, come alive thanks to the island’s abundant fresh ingredient offering. A veritable journey for the senses begins to unfold at Grace Hotel, boasting the perfect vantage point over the island’s awe-worthy Caldera vistas.
Chef Lefteris Lazarou has forged an illustrious path in the country’s gastronomic landscape from an early age, accompanying his father on international voyages and discovering the world’s cuisines. Equipped with international cuisines and creativity, he begins with beloved recipes, adapting them to suit the tastes of varied audiences. In 1987 he realized his dream of opening the, now iconic, Varoulko where he digs deep into his treasure-trove of aquatic inspiration and uses seafood in fine-dining for the first time, altering the landscape of local gastronomy and introducing an entire nation to previously snubbed fish and crustaceans; so pioneering are his dishes that many have now reached classic status. With Lazarou at the helm and thanks to his ever-evolving approach and innovative spirit, Varoulko continues to shine as a beacon of inspiration, amassing an array of notable accolades along the way. The one standing out the most, however, is the Michelin star the restaurant was awarded in 2002, the first star to ever be bestowed on a chef serving Greek cuisine.
Now, with Lazarou steering the ship, Varoulko, undocks from the mainland, voyages out to the Aegean and finds its newest harbour at Grace Hotel. Here, Lazarou’s passionate search for outstanding raw materials, expert technique and commitment to excellence composes an offering distinguished for its inspiring, harmonious flavours and a well-balanced blend of classic and refreshing.
Located 363 meters above sea level and offering a superb vantage point from which to enjoy the famous Santorini sunset over the Caldera. A stunning place of gathering to enjoy bespoke signature cocktails created by Baba Au Rum #Theworlds50BestBars, a wide selection of champagnes and spirits paired with the unparalleled views of the volcano and Skaros Rock, allows for a truly unique celebration.
From exploring the finest Red-sand stretches of coastline bordering the sapphire waters of the Aegean Sea to discovering tucked-away wineries in the whitewashed villages of Kamari and Exo Gonia , the fabled caldera coastline of Santorini awaits.
“Very little has been unveiled to the world about the Greek Islands’ unique local culture. In debuting the reimagined Grace Hotel experience, each guest’s stay is deliberately designed for the ultimate immersion in our stunning destination. Santorini has a greater story to tell, and our team is honored to convey it through the Auberge lens of creative culinary, nourishing wellness and authentic local experiences.” - George Avgoustis, General Manager of Grace Hotel, Auberge Resorts Collection.
