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
Beautiful hotel with views of ocean. Rooms had decks with hot tubs. The front desk group Debby, Christy and Olga were very friendly and helped us tremendously be giving us good advice. Maria the manager was very friendly and gave attention to detail. All the drivers were courteous and helpful. See Órnos Beach and visit Old Town. Great visit.
We enjoyed our stay. Staff was very courteous, service was great. Food was great at the top restaurant as well as good choices for the morning buffet breakfast. We got upgraded and was very generous of the staff to do that. Will definitely recommend and intend to come back.
My wife and I arrived first week of October to celebrate our honeymoon. Upon arrived we were greeted with a friendly smiles and a welcome drinks.
After our check in, the staff toured us around the beautiful grounds and showed us to our suite. The rooms and view were spectacular, and beds very comfortable. We were most impressed on how attentive and friendly the staff was through our entire stay. At one point of the trip when it started to drizzle a member of your team was nice enough to bring us an umbrella without even asking. The little extra attention to detail made our stay a memorable one and we will definitely be back again.
Thank you Katikies Mykonos for a honeymoon to remember.
