My husband and I spent the first 2 days of our Honeymoon at Grace and we're spooked by its charm, beauty and sophistication up till now!!! Now that we're back to our routine, we can't help but to be drifted away from time to time, thinking of the great time we had there. Located in the best spot of Santorini, with perfect views of the volcanic islands of Thirasia, Palea Kameni and parts of Oia and Firostefani, what more can we ask for? We asked the ever so helpful front desk personnel, Elias, about the best spot to view sunset, and he proudly claimed that Grace has the best sunset view. We don't deny it at all as without fail, the sun sets beautifully right in front of our room balcony every evening!!! We witnessed more beautiful sunsets her as compared to Oia!!!

We had a Deluxe room with private plunge pool (room 15) and we're more than happy with our little room, we spent most of our time outdoor, either in our own heated plunge pool with jacuzzi function overlooking the caldera and sea, or in the vicinity of the hotel's 2 decent-sized pools. There were so many day beds and relaxation decks that you would not consider staying indoor at all!!! The view is superb and mesmerizing, you will begin to miss it when you're indoor!!! Here are some of the fantastic perquisites of being a guest at Grace:

- Even the deluxe room feels like a suite. Putting aside the size (most rooms in Santorini are just as small due to the cave house concept), the Deluxe room in Grace is so well-equipped that you will not have any urge to bother them for anything at all. There is a pillow selection menu embroidered on a little pillow, JBL Ipod docking station and speaker, free wifi access, bathrobes, slippers, Korres toiletry products, complimentary white wine readily presented in an ice bucket as you enter the room. Each turn down service is enhanced by little fruit platters next to the bed. Deluxe room 15 is surrounded by Lavender bushes in the exterior, and has a huge private balcony with 2 deck chairs overlooking the sea and caldera.

- We have walked around many hotels in Fira, Oia and Imerovigli and realised that Grace has the biggest outdoor pool, in fact, Grace has 2 outdoor pools, one newly completed with an infinity concept, bordering the busy Aegean sea and volcanic islands.

- Fira and Oia often have waves of crowds, making your holiday less peaceful and people are peeping at your room or balcony from the cliff top, making privacy impossible. Imerovigli is more quiet and classy, although you may encounter occasional non hotel guests passing thru, you will not have large crowds staring at your balcony, taking photos!

- The staff members at Grace are AMAZING!!! Everyone gets their undivided attention. We were greeted by our driver at the airport, who spoke little English but was patient enough to wait for us, being the last out due to our late luggage arrival. The concierge staff diligently delivered our heavy bags to our room, juggling along the narrow and steep steps. We didn't have to lift a finger at all. Front desk Elias greeted us with 2 glasses of champagne, a short orientation of the premise (we couldn't concentrate at all as we're too mesmerized by the beauty of the hotel) and we were also greeted by Martina & Joseph who played the perfect hosts! Every morning, we were attended to by James, who really made our day by presenting our Big Breakfasts and asked us numerous times if we needed anything else! The staff members are so well-trained that I must say that no one at the Starwood preferred hotels like Vedema(santorini) or Grand Bretagne (Athens) can make us feel more welcomed than Grace. The staff at Grace are very attentive, yet subtle and not pushy at all. They will never make you fell obliged to use their facilities or dine at their premise, instead gave us a lot of tips on outside dining.

- The ala-carte breakfast at Grace is something one should never miss!!! Not only that, the hotel is smart enough to extand the breakfast till 12 noon, knowing well enough that people on holiday don't wake up early! The ala-carte menu is so extensive, it's better than any buffet selection we've seen. Breakfast starts with a platter of bread selection, spinach spanakopita and puff pastries. Then, eggs of your choice with accompaniments such as bacon, ham, potatoes, tomatoes, sausages etc. Follow by yoghurt selection, pancake or waffle indulgence, fruits, cereals and lots of smoothies to choose from, champagne and hot beverages. You will really appreciate the 'right from the kitchen to your table' concept as everything is still so fresh and warm.

- A short stroll along the cliff side of Imerovigli (where you will be enchanted by the view) you will reach Firostefani with many tavernas and classy restaurants. Take your pick, you will not be disappointed. Most tavernas here have sea view or even sunset view. We dined at Imerovigli Taverna, full course and drinks for only Euro 45 per couple.

- Right in front of Santorini Grace, you will see a small path to the famous Skaros rock. It is worth the hike as right at the forward of the rock, you will see a small typical greek church with blue dome, overlooking the Aegean sea. The view along the path of Skaros is breathtaking and amazing!

We regretted not booking Grace earlier as the hotel was fully booked and we had to check out after 2 days of being at the Grace. A tip for other travelers, book early, at least 5 mths ahead, allow them to charge fully as you will be entitled a 10% early bird discount. Don't ever stay at the Grace first before moving to other less exclusive hotels or to inland villages like Megalohori ...you will be disappointed as you've already experienced the best and will find it hard to down-grade!

Simply Stunning. After being blown away with the location and of course the views, we chilled out to the personal, attentive service and fabulous warmth and hospitality. My fiance actually said that "I had played out of my boots" on choosing the Santorini Grace. It's a truly memorable experience and we savoured every moment - and your own private plunge pool and luxurious room helped that somewhat! And do the walk to Oia early one morning, and get back for breakfast around 11am on your own patio....it's really worthwhile.

There is no better way to describe the Santorini Grace than the word: PERFECT!!

My wife and I spent four unbelievable nights of our honeymoon at the Santorini Grace and we were blown away with our experience. When I was first trying to figure out where to stay in Santorini, I was torn between Oia and Fira---I am glad I picked Imerovigli. I found Fira to be way to touristy and very loud and Oia was far away and expensive.

The Santorini Grace is truly a boutique hotel. There are less than 30 rooms, two pools (including a brand new infiniti pool), a gym and a restaurant. The rooms are not very large but are very nice! The plunge pool is actually a jacuzzi but still great.

One of the best parts of the Santorini Grace are the owners--Joseph and Martina...they truly make your experience one of a kind. They are always available for questions, recommendations or pretty much whatever else you need. There is free wireless internet access at the hotel and they do have a couple of laptops that they loan out.

Another great part of the hotel is the restaurant. The complimentary breakfast is very good and there are multiple options. The dinner....is FANTASTIC. First, the view, especially at sunset is breathtaking. Second, the food....AMAZING. We ended up eating at the Santorini Grace for 3 of the 4 nights we were there because the foods was so good.

In addition to the food, view, location and service---some other great things were the always helpful hotel staff, the complimentary shuttles to and from the airport/port and the complimentary glasses of champagne and fruit kebabs!

I would absolutely recommend this hotel for those looking for a quiet, peaceful and beautiful place to vacation!!

We've traveled around the world and the Santorini Grace stands out among the top hotels in the world. It's location, design, staff, service, food/beverage, etc. are truly the best. From our room at Santorini Grace we had the most stunning views of the Caldera and sunset imaginable -- it was pure bliss.

We stayed in the new Grace Suite and absolutely loved it! All of the rooms at Santorini Grace are absolutely amazing (with stunning views).

The people and the service are topnotch - it doesn't get any better than this.

I highly recommend Santorini Grace for a vacation of a lifetime. We'll never forget our stay there and hope to return.
