Grace Hotel Santorini, Auberge Resorts Collection has been recognized as the second best resort in Europe and 41st in the world – among 100 hotels – in Travel + Leisure’s (T+L) 2019 World’s Best Awards survey.
“It is an incredible honor to be named one of the best resorts in Europe and in the world,” said George Vlachopoulos, general manager of Grace Hotel Santorini.
“Santorini is known for its stunning beauty, and guests are naturally drawn to Grace Hotel, in part, for its picturesque setting on the island. But the reason they return year after year is because of our outstanding team, whose highly personalized service makes every stay unforgettable,” he added.
Auberge Resorts Collection’s first European property, the 21-room Grace Hotel Santorini is an intimate cliff-top sanctuary marked by whitewashed abodes, with views of cobalt-domed churches, and black- and red-sand beaches on the Greek isle of Santorini.
Guests can witness the sun dipping into the Aegean Sea and the dramatic hues of Santorini’s legendary sunsets, paired with breathtaking views of the Caldera from the 363 Champagne lounge, while tickling their taste buds with pours of the finest champagnes, cocktails and premium spirits.
Furthermore, at the award-winning Santoro restaurant, guests can indulge in a meticulously crafted Mediterranean gastronomic journey under the star-littered sky in one of the best vantage points of the island.
