This 20-room master piece of vernacular architecture known as the Grace Santorini Hotel is carved into a cliff-face that sits 300m above Santorini’s volcanic caldera in Imerovigli .The hotel provides a contemporary interpretation of vernacular architecture: economy of space, radical simplicity, and organic forms. Every nook and cranny of this enormous piece of structural art was well planned ,tested,and designed to show the beauty of luxury as well as the natural beauty of the environment .The layout of rooms follows in plan the broken geometries of the ground’s contours, forming in effect a series of new stone ledges in the steep drop of Caldera.
These jagged lines converge in mid-slope at the level which produces the greatest possible width within the site and it is at this level that the pool of the new hotel is situated. All white interiors with brushed concrete floors reiterate the trademark whitewashed houses of the Cyclades giving the hotel a modern minimalistic touch .Grace Santorini is an exclusive boutique hotel and a member of the award winning Grace Hotels group. The hotel is included in Tatler’s 2011 list of the 101 Best Hotels in the World.The hotel has two beautiful swimming pools including an infinity pool that offers privacy and uninterrupted views. The hotel with its individually styled suites and rooms is obviously a fantasy like get away vacation as well as for those people who just want some rest and relaxation in Santotini . The Grace Santorini is the jewel of the Greek Islands and has been named among the Top 10 Hotels for Romance in Europe in the Trip Advisor Traveller’s Choice Awards With magnificent sea views, dining at Grace Santorini is always special, whether dining inside or al fresco. The hotel breathes opulence but not with fancy ball room chandeliers , and gold base trimming but with the intoxicating vision of simplicity . The organic surrounding environment speaks to each visitor differently giving everyone that stays at the hotel at different experience . Im almost positive that there has never been a complaint to the management asking for a better view almost angle you stand at is the best view in the house. I have no choice but to add this place to my bucket list in fact I think everyone reading should do the same .
