boheme-mykonos-greece-island-view-hotel-feature

We simply can’t get enough of Greece, Mykonos in particular. Like Pygmalion besotted with Galatea, we’ve fallen hard for this whitewashed island in the heart of the Cyclades. In preparation for our inaugural summer fling, we’ve rounded up eight of the island’s best hotels that you should be booking now.

Kenshō Ornos

Mere minutes from Ornos Beach, Kenshō Ornos promises a sedate stay. Wander around in ethereal linen layers, floating from whitewashed bedrooms to the ocean-facing pool, from the cave-set spa to the hotel restaurant helmed by the celebrated Greek chef George Stylianoudakis.

San Giorgio

Designed by cool kids Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel (who ran Mykonos’s lauded Paradise Club for 10 years) San Giorgio is, unsurprisingly, the most Instagram-worthy hotel on the island. Boho-glam vibes abound in the gypset’s chosen destination for unwinding post party.

Myconian Kyma

Just outside Mykonos Town at Myconian Kyma you’ll be close to the action, but not right in the thick of things. With views of the island’s famous windmills visible from the majority of the hotel’s 52 rooms and 29 suites, you’ll easily spy your friends morning coordinates – that being pool bound or only just heading home.

Bill & Coo

Achingly hip, Bill & Coo is the kind of beachside boutique hotel we visualise ourselves residing in full-time. Positioned in Mykonos Town with sea views, a poolside lounge bar and mojitos on tap, this boutique hotel makes guest forget to venture outside its walls.

Archipelagos

A few minutes’ walk from Kalo Livadi Beach (one of the longest stretches of sand on Mykonos), Archipelagos makes booking a room hard to resist. The antidote to the thumping party-scene hangouts peppered across other parts of the island, rooms here are decorated in calming shades of white, grey and blue – the island-wide colour palette.

Belvedere

Hilltop hotels (particularly those which come with views of Mykonos Town and the Aegean Sea) take the top billing in our book. Rooms at the Belvedere are all about white surrounds, clean lines and natural materials and, while that is sure to whet your appetite, when hunger actually strikes the hotel’s on-site restaurant Thea Estiatorio (which focuses on reimagined Greek cuisine) is just the ticket.

Rocabella Mykonos

Coastal contentedness is a certainty at Rocabella Mykonos. With the glittering Aegean Sea as its backdrop, this Grecian getaway is hard to surpass. Add an impressive pool, no-nonsense spa and bedrooms that capture the island’s free spirit – think woven fabrics and raffia rugs – and staying here is a no brainer.

Boheme Mykonos

Away from the giddy excess of Mykonos Town, Boheme Mykonos offers a more traditional Greek hideaway. The atmosphere is gently bohemian – aided by serene mountainside overlooking the waves – while the aesthetic is given an injection of fun with punchy colours, low-hanging lighting and a pool positioned adjacent to your couch.
