Opening on May 15, 2014, this elegant escape in Mykonos town comprises just 20 suites with spacious balconies overlooking the Aegean Sea. The suites artfully combine traditional Mykonos style (whitewashed walls, chunky stone floors, wooden shutters) and a bohemian aesthetic (bright Acapulco chairs, rustic light fixtures, bold graphic print fabrics). Standing fans designed to mimic the island’s famous windmills keep things cool. All suites have similar layouts, but the Superior Sea View Suites come with dining areas and large terraces with sun loungers, and the Honeymoon Suite has an outdoor Jacuzzi. The bathrooms are done in sleek slate-gray. The outdoor pool, alfresco restaurant and laid-back bar all offer panoramic views of the sea and the neighboring island of Delos. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant specializes in seafood and Mediterranean-inspired dishes made with local produce. Breakfast is served in your suite or on your private balcony at a time that suits you.
In the Area
Hit the swanky boutiques in Mykonos town. Shop for designer threads on Matogianni Street or wander through the Little Venice district to pick up quirky gifts and artworks. Sip a cocktail at the stylish waterside bar Caprice; the views take in the island’s famous windmills and harbor. For an alternative view of the Mykonos coastline, ride horseback on one of the island’s best beaches or sail across to the tiny, rocky island of Delos, a trading center of the ancient world and the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. The Paraportiani church, much admired by the French-Swiss architect Le Corbusier, is one of the most photographed sights on the island.
How to Get There
Everything was perfect from staff to food. Location is not really perfect if you intend to walk to restaurants and promenade, then you need a taxi, but otherwise it gives you other bonuses, you are far away from party goers so you can enjoy quit nights and great mornings. The hotel is very small, so don’t expect anything much happening at the hotel itself, but as I said sometimes you just want to run away from crowds. The pool is great/ big, of course there is no beach or beach access, in order to go for a beach you have to ask concierge to book a table at some famous beach bars Mykonos offers and there are plenty of them so try each day a different one
This hotel belongs to the Small Luxury Class of Hotels. It gave us a taste of how most Island Hotels in Greece are laid out. Our room opened into a terrace with a hottub, and spectacular views of the Aegean Sea. The bar and pool area is extremely well laid out. We had asked for breakfast on our terrace and it was laid out in style...very luxurious and we appreciated it all very much. The staff were very attentive, courteous, and very helpful. The hospitality aspect was impeccable!
We enjoyed delicious Greek specialties every breakfast and dinner overlooking the Aegean. Every member of the staff was warm, welcoming, and very professional. We looked forward to talking with them over our sunset dinners. Our sea view suite gave us a spectacular view and sounds of waves on the shore below.
The best hotel address in Mykonos!
One week of :
- extraordinary view on the sea from the room and the restaurant (pool bar),
- relaxation on the wonderfully cozy terrasse from our room, especially with very comfortable sunbeds and superb jacuzzi (with sea view again)
- breakfast and dinners at the pool bar excellent and lots of choice (all local specialities as well)
- waiters and service very kind, efficient and class. Moreover, very generous management as we have been offered a free upgrade.
Hotel in a good location as at 5minutes walking distance from City center and close to Ornos beach where there are great wind conditions for kitesurfing!
We booked this property through as travel agent who unfortunately sis not tell us of the uniqueness of the style, decor and layout so when we traveled to Mykonos were were a bit taken aback at what we encountered. My interpretation of a 5 start hotel is a level of luxury, amenities and service. Bohemian decor is minimalist, not luxurious. It is interesting: beds on picnic table style platforms, night stands made of books wrapped in a belt, light fixtures make of this knotted rope and bicycle wheels. I did not expect this so was a bit surprised at what i encountered although I did find it unique and interesting.
We were first put in a "suite" where the sink area was in the main room space and about 4 feet from the side of the bed. Using the sink while your significant other is sleeping is not practical. The shower and toilet were in a concrete chamber. The shower had no shelves for soap or shampoo and no shower door or curtain. No hooks for towels. Minimalist at it's finest.
We found this setup did not work for us so we went to the front desk to speak to the person who was there. Her response was basically "your travel agent should have told you of the Bohemian nature of this hotel", in other words "suck it up" . We went back to our room and a few minutes later the hotel manager called to express her concern for our complaints. We met her in the reception area and she was truly empathetic and worked to get us into a room that we would be satisfied with. I truly think this manager overheard the other colleague blowing us off and stepped in to provide spectacular service recovery which she did.
Other attributes: Overall property is nice, clean and well maintained. The staff were all pleasant but since we were staying about 2 weeks before the place was closing for the season, the staff appeared a bit exhausted. the guys by the restaurant were very pleasant for the most part.
ALSO note that Mykonos does not have potable water, in fact showers and sink actually a bit salty. That being said, when you check in you are told that you get TWO 500cc bottles of drinking water. When my wife asked if she can get extra water, we were told that we can go into town to BUY if we wanted. REALLY? A FIVE STAR hotel telling clients to go into town to buy water? Needless to say walking up a large narrow street from town with 9 liters of water was far from pleasant. For the price and level of this property, they should be able to provide as much bottled water as needed to their guests. This was the case at the hotel we stayed at in Santorini.
Beds not particularly comfortable as they are platform beds unless you are used to that setup. Nice views of the bay.
The concept of a 5 start hotel is that pay attention to the "little things" and small details to make a clients stay as pleasant as possible. Empathy to room concerns, supply of ample drinking water should have been addressed . Having to go into town to buy amenities (water) is something I expect from a 3 star property, not one that claims to be a five star.
