Understated white-on-white sophistication on an otherwise bohemian Greek isle, along windswept Agios Ioannis Bay
When the emerald Aegean is your backdrop, you can—and should—let it steal the show. That’s the M.O. behind the Mykonos edition of Katikies, a collection of 35 minimalist sugar-cube suites scattered on a tranquil hillside. Unwinding is all that’s on the agenda here, and guests can select from a variety of intoxicating ways to hit the existential reboot button: lounge in your private sanctuary drenched in bliss-inducing blues (all the better if you’ve booked one with an open-air jetted tub); indulge in an underground treatment—the Caldera Hot Stone Massage, perhaps—at the A. Spa; or feast at the bayside Mikrasia, where seafood from the surrounding waters like cod, lobster, and salmon roe is given the royal Byzantine treatment. Once you’re sufficiently replenished, all that’s left to is choose between attending a low-key dance party or just Zen out on a chaise beside one of the two on-property infinity pools, fueled by alfresco tunes and aperitifs.
In the Area
Soak in the island’s best sunset vistas at the nearby Armenistis lighthouse, an 1882 landmark in northwest Mykonos. For a daylong excursion, ask the hotel staff to help you plan a boat trip to Delos (the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis); the sprawling ruins here offer a glimpse at its past-life as a vibrant commercial hub. If it’s open-air partying you’re after, head to Old Town Mykonos, where you can start at one of Little Venice’s laidback lairs before making your way inland for more debauchery. You’re also close to one of Greece’s oldest outdoor theaters, Cine Manto, where indie flicks are accompanied by treats from the garden bistro onsite.
How to Get There
My dream was to stay at Katikies Santorin but I had the chance to discover Katikies Mykonos last September. Exceptional! New boutique hotel but already high level rooms and services! Breakfast and all 2 restaurants are very good with interesting menus.
Upgraded to the Master suite, thanks to all team!
Spa and massages are good quality and professional.
I would have expected they propose me a late check out as the hotel was absolutely not full at that time. Except Of that detail , LHW Leaders Club welcome., and i défi Italy recommend Katikies Mykonos, probably the best in Mykonos.
I took a friend for a 3-night stay at Katikies for her birthday early October. It was the end of the season, therefore the price was very reasonable. Being a Leading Hotel club member, we got an upgrade to a junior suite (room 59) which we appreciated. Though the hotel was not full, when we checked-in around 12h00, our room was not ready, but the lovely girl at the reception gave us a full tour of the property. We went to Mykonos downtown and came back around 5 pm and discovered our room. We had an amazing view and a nice welcome gift (bottle of wine and fruits). An important point to mention, if you don't like stairs or you are disabled, this hotel is not for you.
I will start with the positive things (unfortunately only 2 to be mentioned)
- View is great
- Staff is pleasant
Now, the negative part:
I don't know who was the architect/interior designer but I guess he/she never sleeps in the rooms...
I cannot mention how many times both my friend and I banged our head on the lamps (both in the room and especially the bathroom).
The sink in the bathroom is nice (blue) but there is almost no place around to put your toiletries. There is only one shelf under the sink (not very practical).
Let's talk about the faucets: you must be an expert.... First of all in the sink, if you want hot water you have to turn it right while it's the opposite in the bathtub... If you don't pay attention, you'll get wait when opening the faucet in the sink. This faucet his not appropriate for this sort of sink.
We could not enjoy our beautiful terrace because it was just above the chimney pipe of the kitchen which was not cover. So you can imagine the smell from breakfast to evening coming from this big pipe... We could not even open the door because the smell was coming inside the room. I mentioned this to the staff.
There is only one full-length mirror but it is stuck between the bed against the wall of separating to the bathroom. Therefore, either you have to manage not to bang your head over the lamp and you are extremely close to the mirror or if you go to the other side of the bed, you see half of your body because there is the bed which cut off the view and half of your body.
We had dinner (birthday dinner of my friend) at Mikrasia. There was only another couple. Therefore, 4 customers for dinner. It was chilly but they brought us blankets. While the amuse bouche/small appetizers were great and tasty, the main courses were nothing special. I had as a starter the tomatoes cucumber sorbet / pickle onion / smoked ‘feta’. Then I took the lamb as a main course and my friend the Turbot Fish Seafood dolma / ‘’kakavia’’ / preserved fish roe (45 Euros the fish). The dolma was so salty. But on top of it we had to wait 40 min. between the starter and the main course... and we were the only 2 customers (we started dinner after 8.30 pm) and the previous guests had almost finished when we arrived. The nice touch of the dinner was the lovely and tasty birthday cake they prepared for my friend. It's a pity because the location is great.
For our breakfast, the first day they were out of black tea. I thought the following day, I could get some but it did not come to anybody's mind to go and buy a pack of black tea. So for a hotel of this standing, not having black tea even if it's the end of the season, is not really great.
Last but not least, they have 2 pools but none of it is heated. Though we had an open-air jetted tub it was not heated and therefore our swimsuits remain in our suitcases. We regretted it because it was sunny, the view from the pool amazing (especially the one upstairs close to Mikrasia restaurant) but we could not swim.
In terms of privacy, depending on where you are located as you can easily overlook the pool or terraces of the other rooms. For more privacy, ask for a room at the top of the hill.
For a hotel which opened in June, I'm not sure about the maintenance as we already saw already traces of humidity and rust.
There are plenty of hotels in Mykonos, we picked up Katikies because it was a small boutique hotel and recently opened but not sure I will come back.
Last but not least the average price (which, fortunately, we did not pay as it was the end of the season) of the junior suite in a normal season is between 550 and 990 euros a night. For this price, you are expecting a little bit more.
I loved this hotel since the first moment! The hotel is very smartly decorated and furnished! From every single angle you have a great view! They upgraded us to a junior suite from a superior double room which I highly appreciate it! We were a small group of friends being invited to a wedding in Mykonos!! I would like to thank the girls in reception & guest relation desk but most of all the staff in the restaurant! Every morning they were doing their best to please us in the breakfast! The breakfast buffet was rich and very nicely presented!
But the very strong point I rate excellent this hotel is that even though the hotel was closing down for the summer season just the next day we were leaving, nobody and nothing made us feel that the hotel was closing down the next day after our departure! Staff was always smiley and ready to serve you and all services and points were functioning properly and in perfection!! I Highly recommend you this hotel for your holidays on 2019.
This was our first time in Mykonos so we chose from the LHW website this new hotel situated just close to St John's bay on the quieter side of Mykonos yet very close(1.5 miles) to Ornos , and 3 miles to Mykonos town,so not remote at all.
The hotel although small in capacity, is spread over a fairly large area on the hillside, there is a golf buggy available to take you to the roonms if you don't fancy the climb
Psarou(nammos) and superparadise(Jackie O) are not too far away around 15/20 mins by car.
Accommodation is very typically Greek, with minimalist styling, very clean bathrooms with Bulgari toiletries and good size, the junior suites had the nice small jacuzzi whirlpool on the patio, the larger suite we chose had a huge sun terrace with splendid views over the bay.
Breakfasts are absolutely fab.. the Katikies omelette being a standout, with it's added truffle oil.
The pool areas are very well designed with the larger infinity pool situated just adjacent to the bar /breakfast area and the smaller quieter one at a higher level adjacent to the fine dining restaurant.
Staff here absolutely excellent, we wanted for nothing and will return next year...
One of the very best Hotels we stayed for Holidays worldwide. Beautiful and very friedly staff. Everything was absolutely perfect. This was not our last stay in Katikies!! Thank you to everybody and see you next time
