Grace Hotels


TATLER PROMOTION

If a more cosmopolitan buzz is on the agenda, head to the vibrant island of Mykonos for another Grace hotel experience. Located just north of Mykonos Town above the sandy beach of Agios Stefanos, Mykonos Grace launched in summer 2007 to phenomenal success. Hip and intimate, it has the same understated luxury that is instrumental to the Grace ethos. Chic rooms and suites, a pampering spa, fitness room and a terrific restaurant are all housed in traditional Mykonian architecture. And there is exciting news. Rumour has it that more of the Grace brand of understated elegance is on the horizon, with Kea Grace about to debut, and the group setting its sights across the Med!

Greek chic

Following über-success in Mykonos, Grace Hotels brings its signature boutique style to Santorini. For effortless elegance and low-key chic, Grace is the word

June 2008 saw the much-awaited opening of Santorini Grace. Most of the 20 suites and rooms have private terraces and plunge pools, perfect for a midnight dip; the quiet indulgence of this boutique gem, reflects the island’s mystical beauty. Cool and contemporary, each room is uniquely styled and includes those all-important luxuries: king-size beds, crisp linens and super-light goose-down summer duvets, a six-choice pillow menu, plus all the latest technology.

Outside each individual cocoon, the hotel exudes the same understated luxury. Upon arrival, new guests are handed ice-cold towels and chilled champagne; there’s an inviting pool and comfy sun loungers, a pool bar serving tempting snacks and cocktails and, for the ultra-decadent, champagne breakfast served throughout the day. Situated on the island’s north-west coast in the picturesque fishing village of Imerovigli, Santorini Grace, like so many of its whitewashed stone neighbours, is dramatically carved into the cliff face. And from its lofty location, breathtaking views stretch over historic Skaros Rock (famed for its Venetian castle ruins). And every evening as the sun sets over the Cyclades, guests (cocktail in hand) can watch the Aegean Sea bathed in glorious crimson from the terraces of the hotel. Follow this breathtaking spectacle with dining alfresco while enjoying views of a moonlit Caldera and the tiny 15th-century church of Agios Ioannis Katiforis, situated just a few steps below. Santorini is steeped in history and legend, and guests should venture out and explore the island. Whatever the request, from helicopter to yacht hire, from beach picnic to restaurant booking, the Grace concierge can help you make the most of this mesmerising destination.
