The 37-room Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton will open in spring 2022.
Following the opening of the Royal Senses Resort & Spa Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton in June 2021, the Hilton Hotel Group has signed a franchise agreement with Alexandro Ltd for the opening of this new property in Santorini.
The Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton, will feature 37 locally designed rooms, inspired by the blue and white architecture of the island of Santorini, with stone walls and wood textures. Each room has its own private terrace with a Jacuzzi or swimming pool. The hotel is located on the southern coast of one of Greece's most popular islands, in Exomitis. Santorini's many sights are within a short drive from the hotel, such as Fira, the island's capital, the prehistoric city of Akrotiri, the Vlychada marina or the famous colourful beaches such as Red Beach or Perissa Black Sand Beach. The hotel will have two restaurants and two bars, two of which will be located on the hotel's private beach. Two swimming pools, a spa and a fitness room will also be available to guests.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development for Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton, said: "With a 60-year heritage in Greece and following on from our latest opening in Crete, we are delighted to expand our Greek portfolio with the first Hilton hotel in Santorini. One of Greece's most popular islands, Santorini welcomes more than two million visitors each year and is an ideal location for our second Curio Collection by Hilton in the Greek islands. The new hotel joins more than 20 Curio Collection hotels under development in Europe, doubling the brand's European presence over the next three years. We are delighted to partner with Santorini specialists Alexandros Ltd to offer this unique and impressive beachfront hotel, which will open next year."
Michail Karamolegkos, owner of Alexandros Ltd, said, "Our experience in Santorini, from tours and transfers to hotels and villas, makes us the perfect partner to open the first Hilton hotel on the island. We are delighted to be working with Hilton and look forward to developing our relationship in the future. We plan to open the hotel next year and look forward to welcoming guests to this spectacular property."
