First Hilton Hotel to Open on Santorini

Hilton has signed a franchise agreement with Alexandros Ltd for the creation of the Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton.

Opening in Spring of 2022, the 37-room hotel with a private beach is a first for Hilton on the island of Santorini.

“With a presence in Greece spanning over sixty years, and energized by our recent venture in Crete, we’re excited to expand our plans for Greece with the first Hilton hotel on Santorini,” says Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development for Hilton in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “One of the most popular islands in the country, Santorini welcomes more than two million visitors each year, and it’s the ideal location for our second Curio Collection by Hilton hotel in the Greek islands. This new addition is one of over twenty Curio Collection hotels currently under development across Europe, doubling the company’s presence on the continent over the next three years. With the launch of the hotel expected in the coming year, we are especially happy to partner with Alexandros Ltd, a company with extensive knowledge of the island, to present this unique, spectacular hotel by the sea.”


The Curio Collection by Hilton is an international brand with more than 100 hotels and resorts worldwide. Hilton recently pledged to continue growing the number of Curio Collection hotels, with 66 new hotels already under construction. The Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort, located in the village of Exomitis, will be the newest Greek Curio Collection Hotel; The Royal Senses Resort & Spa Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton opened in June in Panormos, Rethymno on the island of Crete.

“Our many years of experience in Santorini’s hospitality sector, including organizing trips and arranging transfers to hotels and villas, makes us the ideal partners for launching the first Hilton family hotel on the island,” says Michalis Karamolegos, owner of Alexandros Ltd. “We’re delighted with this collaboration, and we look forward to broadening our relationship in the future. We plan to be ready to greet guests next season, and we look forward to welcoming visitors to such an amazing space.”

Every room in the new purpose-built building, located in the south of the island on a private beach, has its own private terrace, and guests can enjoy their own private jacuzzis or swimming pools. There are two hotel restaurants and two bars, and guests also have the use of two swimming pools, a spa, fitness facilities and beach loungers.
