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
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Katikies. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed every moment of our stay. The property is perfectly located and the pools were spectacular. We definitely will be back!
We stayed at this hotel in Mykonos, the place is overall clean but the rooms are very basic, with the typical decoration of Greece hotels that helps them a bit on the standardization, but sacrificing the comfort, the room was very basic, not so comfortable and too many bugs and mosquitoes. The location is far from the town and this hotel does not offer a shuttle service, so location is not so convenient, the sea is across the street but depending on the villa you may or not have a good view, instead, you see a lot of country side, dirty and not really nice. The pool water is not tempered but very cold in fact so not OK if you are not into cold water, especially on this place that it is very windy. Overall is decent but definitely too expensive for what you get. Not the good experience we expected for what we paid.
Our stay at the Katikies Mykonos was absolutely amazing. Although out visit was during the end of the season, the staff and all of the amenities were excellent and it was as though they were providing service during the peak season. Thank you to all the staff at the Katikies Mykonos that made our stay so enjoyable!
