Auberge Resorts Collection
What it is
A showstopping gem on the Aegean, where every whitewashed caldera-view room and villa has its own terrace and heated plunge pool.
What it isn't
Boring. Staffers have curated bucket list experiences, from island hopping via a private yacht to clifftop hikes overlooking Skaros rock.
What we think
When you dream Instagram-worthy dreams of Santorini, it’s likely Grace Hotel you’re picturing. Here, guest rooms are outfitted in a palette of turquoise, gray and cloud white, to mirror the jaw-dropping panorama you’ll see from the plunge pool on your private terrace. If you’re staying a while (and believe us, you should), upgrade to a suite for 968-square feet of breathing room, many with separate hammam baths and living areas. Grace really earns its name by perfecting the little things, from your seven-choice pillow menu to room diffusers you can customize with your choice of scent. To get the full Beyonce experience, book The Villa; you’ll have 1,615 square feet inside, and a whopping 2,691 square feet of terrace under the Santorini sun, plus a doting villa manager, personal chef and private heated swimming pool.
You're here because
The spa is holistic, inspired by the region, and truly top-notch. Prime example: treatments include flower-infused olive oil massages and red wine facials.
Every minute of jet lag was well worth it for this meal by the infinity pool at Santoro—where the hand-smoked trout and shrimp in coconut milk has you beaming like Aphrodite herself, arising from the surf.
