Mykonos villa-style boutique hotel overlooking Ornos Bay with a glam swim-up pool bar and private yacht
Originally designed as a luxury family villa, this 39-room Aegean gem still retains a private club feel, down to the individually decorated rooms, champagne on arrival and interior mix of French antiques and 20th-century design classics. Located on Ornos Bay, recreation here centers around the pool, with its all-day swim-up bar (open until midnight) and adjacent terrace restaurant serving classic Mediterranean dishes. The spa offers a full range of treatments, including a hammam and massages on the hotel’s private beach. And in case you want to kick things up a notch, Kivotos Hotel is also close to Agios Ioannis Beach and party-happy Paradise Beach, so you’ll never be far from the high-octane summer action.
In the Area
If you’re looking for a scene, head to Mykonos’ most notorious beach bar, Super Paradise, where the cocktails, dancing and flirting lasts into the night all summer long. The more sedate-minded might prefer to explore the charming cobblestone streets of the old town, with its iconic windmills, ancient whitewashed churches and the main drag Matoyianni, lined with boutiques and jewelers. Peruse the baubles at Ilias Lalaounis, one-time jeweler to Jackie O, then have a quiet afternoon aperitif at the Astra, before the jetset crowd descend (Keith Richards is said to be a fan.) Back on Ornos, the mid-week “Fresh Fish Barbeque” takes place on the hotel’s private beach: local fishermen spread their nets out with the day’s catch, while waiters bring shot glasses of Mastiha or watermelon to guests poolside.
