Nobu Hospitality has this week announced it will be opening its first hotel and restaurant in Greece. The Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Santorini is positioned to open later this year in the spring.
The global lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, and Meir Teper already holds twenty-six properties in its expanding portfolio, ten of which are in Europe.
“We are very excited to be coming to Santorini and to work with the local community on this exciting project. 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,” Trevor Horwell, Chief Executive Officer Nobu Hospitality, said in a statement.
“We look forward to inviting locals and international travelers alike to experience the Nobu lifestyle in this special destination.”
The Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Santorini is situated on Santorini’s northeast coast and will house a signature Nobu Restaurant, a full-service spa, luxury fitness facility, dual-level infinity pool, and a total of five pool villas. Its position allows for breathtaking panoramic views of the Caldera and Aegean Sea from its unique clifftop location in Imerovigli.
Nobu Hospitality had entered into a long-term management agreement with MonteRock International to ensure its properties maintain a level of food, beverage, and hospitality that are core to the Nobu brand, which will continue on to the Greece property.
“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,” Alfredo Longo, Chief Executive Officer MonteRock International shared in a statement.
“In this incredible ‘canvas’ such as the Island of Santorini, the finest of what Nobu lifestyle and cuisine have to offer would be served in a ‘picture-perfect setting,’ catering to every need at the highest standards.”
