The luxury boutique hotel carved into the cliff face of Santorini’s volcanic caldera has just received a huge makeover by Fifth Element Interior of London and SMK Interiors of Greece and the results are breathtaking.
Remodeled Grace Santorini Boutique Hotel
Extensive enhancements to the 21 room hotel have turned it into one of the most coveted destinations in Greece. Originally developed in 2008, the hotel added the 400 sq. meter Villa with its own volcanic spa during the years 2010-2012. Now the hotel has maintained the minimalist whitewashed feeling of Greece, but added a Champagne Lounge, a Yoga and Pilates studio, renovated restaurant and custom designed furnishings, high-end features and awesome bathrooms to all the rooms.
So many boutique hotels in Greece are done in the classic Aegean Sea blue and white. Many have personal pools and amazing views. But the newly remodeled Grace Santorini has a much more contemporary, sophisticated look and feel.
19 of the 21 rooms have their own plunge pool and all the rooms feature outdoor eating areas with panoramic views.
The bathrooms have been outfitted with luxurious vanities that boast hand-carved marble basins made from greek statuary; as well as rain showers with mosaic embellished walls.
Local materials like Aegean walnut wood and volcanic rock were used in the designs. Sofas handmade in Greece and specially curated accessories from the Cyladic Museum punctuate the rooms.

Even the hotel’s Santoro Restaurant and bar has been newly designed and features lighter and more sophisticated fare.
