Tried, tested and suggested, the following hotels are unique choices when it comes to visiting the island of Mykonos…..
….a destination known for its partying to the wider public that in reality has so much more to offer especially during the months of May, June and early Autumn.
The only Greek island with 23 organised beaches and a day life much more exciting and versatile that anyone would think.
LenasBlackBook picks the top five hotels on the island right now based on their location, interior design, crowd and extra services.
Starting off with Bill & Coo Suites in Megali Ammos’ beach, this hotel is ideal for 30 something couples or small groups who seek international environment and crowd, like good food and are into “less is more” interiors.
Its design is simple , austere and minimalistic retaining though a warm feel to it .
We like it because of its proximity to the town of Mykonos as well as the fact that it is one of the few hotels that will make you skip a night out and sit by the pool enjoying cocktails or a great dinner by its acclaimed chef Athinagoras Kostakos.
Next on the list Kivotos Hotel, member of the leading Hotels of the world is sitting amphi-theatrically on the bay of Ornos
enjoying an amazing view on the endless Aegean blue.
Here apart from the prime location and very attractive interiors, the guest can enjoy a private stay at the spacious two level hotel suites, enjoy yoga lessons, candle light dinners on the hotel’s private beach or even hire the PrincedeNeufchatel ….yacht for a day trip or more.
The spa treatments are a must-do!
Located in the heart of Mykonos town, this is the hottest five-star small luxury hotel on the island.
We like it because its ultra people watching especially during dinner time because of its Matsuhisa restaurant and excellent small cocktail bar by its pool
The rooms are relatively small but you are a stone’s throw from all the action
This year the hotel is welcoming«seaside cottage by Belvedere» situated at the popular Psarou Beach.
An all time favourite to its International guests, here you will be seeing all the Parisian enfants gate, stylish Americans, South Africans and generally a very nice crowd.
Located at Psarou beach you are very close to Mykonos town by car but also next to Nammos’s restaurant and beach where the party begins every afternoon.
The Interiors and the vibe of the hotel are enchanting, a true definition to what Mykonos should be about.
White washed airy lounges with great art and comfy couches where you can just sit and gaze at the endless blue horizon.
The hotel spa is impressing, the breakfast area feels very homy and both restaurants offer quality mediteranean dishes with an addition of a sushi and a cocktail bar this year.
Last but not least, member of the Starwood Hotels the Santa Marina Hotel is located at a unique piece of land at Ornos bay and after a three year face lift, today, it beautifully blends the old with the new offering a fantastic mix of services.
The gardens, pool areas and private beach are one of a kind on the island, plus the little church with the heli pad nearby are the perfect spot for a divine private wedding ceremony.
Its outdoor bars and restaurants are quite happening during the summer months and its beach parties gather all the who is who of Europe…..at times.
