First Santorini Hilton Hotel Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort to open in Spring 2022!
Scheduled to open in Spring 2022, Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort will be the first Santorini Hilton Hotel. The famous global hospitality chain has just announced the signing of a franchise agreement with Alexandros Ltd to open the new beach hotel on the south coast of the island, at Exomitis.
The new 37 room hotel will boast a private beach, two restaurants and two bars for a relaxed bite to eat or cocktail, two pools, a spa and fitness facilities. Its interior design will take inspiration from Santorini’s iconic blue and whitewashed architecture, incorporating the island’s rugged natural beauty with stone walls and organic wooden textures.
Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort will belong to Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of more than 100 one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts, all offering a unique way to experience incredible destinations. In recent years, Hilton has signed an ever-increasing number of Curio Collection by Hilton hotels, with 66 hotels currently in development. The Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort will be the latest Grecian Curio hotel, following the recent opening of The Royal Senses Resort & Spa Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton in June.
On the southern tip of one of Greece’s most popular islands, the Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort, Curio Collection, is a short drive from Santorini’s most popular sights. From the architecture of the island’s cosmopolitan capital Fira to the prehistoric city of Akrotiri, visitors can explore the volcanic island’s many must-sees without straying too far from the hotel. Less than two kilometres from Vlichada, a bustling marina full of seafood tavernas, attractions like the Santorini Arts Factory and neighbouring black-pebble beach, guests can explore Santorini against a backdrop of volcanic cliffs and visit colourful beaches like the famed Red Beach and iconic Perissa Black Sand Beach.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton said, “With a 60-year legacy in Greece and hot on the heels of our latest opening in Crete, we are excited to further develop our Grecian portfolio with Hilton’s first 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. This new hotel joins more than 20 Curio Collection hotels in development across Europe, doubling the brand’s European presence in the next three years. Opening next year, we are pleased to partner with Santorini specialists Alexandros Ltd to offer this unique and impressive beachfront hotel.”
Michail Karamolegkos, the owner of Alexandros Ltd, said, “Our experience in Santorini, from excursions and transfers to hotels and villas, makes us the ideal partner to open Hilton’s first hotel on the island. We are thrilled to be working with Hilton and look forward to developing our relationship in the future. We expect to open the hotel next year and are excited to welcome guests to this spectacular property”
