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
I dont think I have ever felt so relaxed in my life. This resort has definitely embraced all my human senses... from the music that plays throughout the place (hearing)..to the taste of the food... (taste) the aromatic smells of jasmine..mint..oregeno and thyme around the grounds (smell) to the view of the Aegean sea..little greek churches nestled on the mountain side to white washed houses from any place on this property... (sight) and with the final sense being (touch)... touching my wife's face, while we embrace each other on our sun bed taking it all in and celebrating our love, celebrating her coming into this world, and enjoying our life ... xoxo my queen and thank you Mykonos.....
The team there is very polite..professional and courteous...from the door men..to reception..concierge...housekeeping..wait staff..and management.

Excellent hotel! Staff, amenities, location and food all were excellent. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect and always went the extra step to ensure our visit was perfect. Very relaxing environment and great service!
Traveling through Athens, Mikonos, Santorini and Crete. Stayed at 4.5 - 5 star rated hotels. This was the best service. Beautiful property with excellent food. Would definitely return. Property has outdoor stairs although nothing like Santorini.
