Nobu Hotel Santorini is a serene clifftop hideaway, balancing authentic wellbeing experiences with sensational dining at the country’s first and only Nobu restaurant, surrounded by some of the island’s most spectacular vistas.
Stay: The hotel features a boutique collection of 25 suites, including five luxurious pool villas, seamlessly blending whitewashed Cycladic style with Japanese minimalism and incorporating warming accents such as ochre-hued rugs, linen pendant lighting and locally produced artwork. Villas are split across two levels and feature private gardens, swimming pools and spacious outdoor lounge areas, while the namesake Nobu Suite enjoys a sprawling private veranda with a plunge pool and breath-taking views of the Caldera.
Do: The hotel is located near Imerovigli on the famed Oia-Thira hiking trail, a 10km route ideal for mindful wandering amidst some of the island’s prettiest villages, churches and viewpoints. To truly disconnect, guests can indulge in in-room spa treatments, meditate on the resort’s yoga patio – which doubles as a book club – exercise in the state-of-the-art fitness studio or simply lay back and relax beside the volcano-facing dual-level infinity pool.
Eat: Guests can enjoy a front-row seat to Santorini’s sensational and uninterrupted sunset vistas from the sea-facing restaurant, serving iconic dishes such as Black Cod Miso, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno, Fried Umami Chicken Wings, and Wagyu Beef Sando, as well as a variety of Greek and Mediterranean dishes and rotating off-the-menu specials. The restaurant has just launched an exclusive Omakase menu, allowing guests to leave their culinary fate in the hands of expert Chef Manuel Jimenez to enjoy classic Nobu dishes paired with Greek wines and signature cocktails.
