Nobu Hospitality is continuing its march into Europe, revealing its first hotel and restaurant in Greece – the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Santorini, scheduled to open in the northern spring of 2022.
Positioned on Santorini’s northeast coast, the boutique hotel houses a signature Nobu Restaurant, full-service spa, fitness facility, dual-level infinity pool, and five luxurious pool villas, and offers attention-grabbing views of both the Caldera and Aegean Sea from its unique clifftop location in Imerovigli. Just a 10-minute drive to the charming coastal town of Oia and 20 minutes from Santorini (Thira) International Airport, the hotel is well-positioned along the famed Oia-Fira hiking trail that runs between Oia and Fira, Santorini’s cosmopolitan capital.
Nobu Hospitality has entered a long-term management agreement with MonteRock International (MRI), a group with over 25 years of experience in a variety of core industries including hospitality, media, food & beverage, real estate, banking, and industrial technology.
This development appears to be a repositioning of MRI’s 3.5-star Danae Suites Santorini, which appears on the company’s website but was yet to officially launch.
“We are very excited to be coming to Santorini and to work with the local community on this exciting project,” said Trevor Horwell, Chief Executive Officer Nobu Hospitality.
“Santorini is one of the most highly regarded destinations in the world with its rare beauty, famed for its distinctive cuisine, whitewashed architecture set with a backdrop of steep cliffs, and dramatic sunsets lighting the sea and sky. We look forward to inviting locals and international travellers alike to experience the Nobu lifestyle in this special destination.”
Alfredo Longo, Chief Executive Officer MonteRock International comments, “We are really proud of the rock-solid collaboration we are having with Nobu brand throughout the years, and we are now more than delighted to expand together in the hospitality industry.”
Adding to Nobu Hospitality’s European portfolio, the launch of Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Santorini marks the 26th hotel around the world and 1oth hotel in the European continent, with properties in Rome, San Sebastián, and Hamburg also in development.
