Everyone’s talking Mykonos
The most luxury of party destinations
It’s fair to say Mykonos is the most luxury of party destinations right now, a firm favourite amongst the jet-setters and a-listers. Considering a trip to the Aegean Sea this year? We’ve hand picked our top 4 Hotels for their luxurious offerings (obviously) and individuality, all providing something different, from an affordable find, to the most exclusive of boutique hotels.
Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge
For: Luxurious Simplicity.
Since opening, Bill & Coo has been a popular choice amongst those looking for both luxury and privacy when visiting the party island. Located just outside of Mykonos Town, the suites offer the perfect location, close enough to all the best nightlife spots, while providing some tranquility outside of the centre, away from the noise of clubs and bars. The 30 suites design and style, much like the location, do everything necessary to calm the mind and body! The neutral whitewashed interior and simplistic furnishing provide a simple space, with all the luxurious amenaties expected from a pricey hotel, such as the beautiful infinty pools. Other than the stunning view of the Aegean Sea, you can expect to be wow-d by the impressive attention to detail when it comes to customer service, with additional options such as a personal driver, assistant, and personal trainer on hand during your stay.
For: Great value for money.
Built in 1956, Leto would have been one of the first luxury hotels on the island, and has become increasingly popular amongst tourists today, from celebs to holiday goers. It’s prime location in the town, just steps from the Old Port lends itself as the ultimate hotel for stumbling home to after a night on the Mykonos streets. Everything is within walking distance, from taxi ranks, to bus stops and shops. Although not located on a beach, Leto brings the sea to you, with a seawater pool, and everything else you might need for a sun-filled holiday. Enjoy breakfast from your quant balcony, or down in the lush gardens – either way, this charming property is the perfect spot for those looking for something a little less eye watering in price, but that packs in all the special touches for an unforgettable stay.
Kivotos Mykonos Hotel
For: The private beach.
It’s fair to say the cost of this stunning boutique hotel comes down to its location. Perched on the rocks, the 40 suites and villas look out onto the beautiful blue Aegean Sea, with the turquoise shore just below. The aesthetic environment created at Kivotos creates a boutique, home like feel – allowing you to settle into your surroundings with ease and comfort. This, along with it’s luxury facilities (3 restaurants, a swim up bar, exclusive spa, private hot tubs and Bulgari toiletries) are probably why it draws in the A-listers, with previous guests including John Legend and Shakira. Set in Ornas Bay, the hotel is 10 minute drive from the town centre, so you can expect a tranquil stay, without the comings and goings of vehicles. This boutique really does scream privacy overall, with private dining opportunities, private infinity pools, and last but not least – the private beach. Head down to soak up the sun, and enjoy uninterrupted bliss while looking out at the hotels very own wooden yacht.
For: Unbeatable views.
You may have seen the Cavo Tagoo Hotel on instagram, famous for it’s sunset views from the over-water sunbeds and infinty pool (in both Mykonos and Santorini locations). The Mykonos build sits on a hillside near Hóra, in walkable distance to the town, but you can opt to take the free shuttle if you’d rather. The stunning hotel certainly grabs the attention of Mykonos holiday goers, from the 38-metre-long infinity seawater pool and luxury spa, to the luxurious suites and villas equipped with whirlpools, private pools (for some) and music systems. If your intending to fill your time with partying into the early hours, and continue the indulgent eating and cocktail sipping through the day – this is THE place to be.
