Robert de Niro’s famous Nobu is coming to Santorini island Greece

All you have to know about when does the first Nobu Hotel & Restaurant open in Santorini

In 2012, allured by the beauty of Greece, Robert De Niro was looking for a house on the island of Santorini with a full view of the caldera.

De Niro had noted during his many stays in Greece that the breathtaking sunsets, the friendly people, and the warm colors of Santorini had been so appealing to him that he wished to return every time to Greece as soon as possible. Moreover, De Niro told Nikos Aliagas that he would take on Greek citizenship if he finds a house in Santorini as he already feels “a bit Greek” himself.

Though with a new plan on the horizon, in 2022 Robert De Niro and Meir Teper announced the opening of the first hotel and restaurant in Greece, the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Santorini, which will open in the Spring of 2022.

About Nobu luxury hotel in Santorini

Located on the magnificent northeast coast of the island, the boutique hotel will house a Nobu Restaurant, fully equipped SPA, fitness facility, two-level infinity pool, and five luxury villas with pools. Offering immersive views of both the Caldera and the 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.

The hotel’s exterior will, of course, feature the quintessential white-and-blue color scheme the Cyclades are known for, and the interior and poolside décor will reflect a minimalist-chic vibe that is synonymous with Nobu properties. This includes sleek, black chaise loungers and matching umbrellas, slate gray daybeds, and desert-inspired landscaping that’s sure to up the cool factor at this highly anticipated hotel.
