Hot hotel openings: Santorini’s 5-star resort on a volcanic island and more

In this week’s roundup, we’re looking at Santorini’s latest beachfront resort, a new Art Deco hotel in Miami, a historic hotel revival and more.

Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini

Global luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand Nikki Beach has opened Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini under the Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts division, the brand’s second location in Greece.

Situated on a volcanic island, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Santorini features a collection of 62 luxe rooms and suites, a beach club, as well as international restaurants and bars. This 5-star Santorini lifestyle beachfront resort provides 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-gray sand, set against the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Accommodations are modern with amenities and décor inspired by nature.

“Greece has always been a natural habitat for our brand”

“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,” said 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.”
