Dubai: Global luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand Nikki Beach opens Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini under the Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts division, the brand’s second location in Greece.
Situated on Greece’s most stunning volcanic island, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini caters to discerning travellers with its collection of 62 luxe rooms and suites, stylish beach club, international restaurants and bars and idyllic ambience. This 5-star Santorini lifestyle beachfront resort features spectacular views over the Aegean Sea and offers easy access to ancient Thera, Oia, Fira and the airport. The beach boasts Santorini’s famed volcanic black-grey sand, set against the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Accommodations are modern with top-line amenities and décor inspired by nature.
Guests can elevate their experience with a suite featuring a private Jacuzzi or pool. There are 9 different room options with either a sea or pool and garden view. The Ultimate Suite (1,227 square feet) is located on the top floor of the resort and comes equipped with a private pool, rooftop Jacuzzi and 360-degree view of Santorini’s landscape. Alternatively, The Ultra Suite (ranging between 274 and 592 square feet) features a private balcony and jacuzzi overlooking the Aegean Sea.
Nikki Beach’s signature hospitality is in full effect at the resort’s beach club, with plush, all-white daybeds and cabanas. The beach club highlights Nikki Beach’s global dishes, live entertainment and barefoot chic vibes. Alternative culinary options span Café Nikki, an all-day urban bistro; Escape, an outdoor restaurant fusing Greek cuisine with Peruvian-style recipes; and Skybar, a rooftop bar with creative cocktails, Champagne, shisha and panoramic views. In-room dining is also available 24 hours a day.
“Greece has always been a natural habitat for our brand and the opportunity to launch a boutique resort in the world-renowned destination of Santorini is one of the most important steps in our growth process,” says Alexander Schneider, President of the Global Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts division. “Our strong strategic Greek partners, Hotel Brain and the Katikies Group, have been essential in the delivery of the project and the positioning in the domestic and international market, and we are looking forward to growing our portfolio further with them.”
Santorini is known for its unique electromagnetic energy, charming white houses, kaleidoscopic sunsets and savoury local cuisine, and Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini is in the epicentre of the action. The resort’s concierge can arrange tours of the island, spanning culinary experiences, wine tours, sunset cruises, watersports, historic sightseeing, trekking and hiking routes.
Nikki Beach Hotels and Resorts EMEA CEO Jihad El Khoury comments: “With the opening of Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini, we have triggered our next-level growth phase in line with our development strategy. This was driven by the investor’s trust in our brand and the market demand for fresh and relevant lifestyle resort applications.”
Exclusive location services include limousine and helicopter service, complimentary parking, 24/7 reception and tour and travel services. The resort is accessible by land and sea, from the main port of Piraeus. Nikki Beach has a well-established following in the yachting world with its existing seafront locations, including Nikki Beach Costa Smeralda, Saint Barth, Mallorca, Saint Tropez and Monte Carlo.
“Our experiential luxury concept has become a sought after one,” says Lucia Penrod, CEO of Nikki Beach Global. “With a range of different restaurant options, on-site amenities and a personal touch, we offer our guests a unique experience that is catered to their mood. We started Nikki Beach 20 years ago with restaurants and beach clubs, and we’re still doing what made us successful when we launched.”
