With its enormous lobby filled with flying books, ceramic safari animals and kitsch white-leather sofas with ‘I heart Mykonos’ cushions, there’s undoubtedly a playful side to this prominent member of Leading Hotels of the World. But don’t mistake playful with a compromise on luxury; check in here and you’re guaranteed to feel pampered.
Just steps from the hotel is a private section of Elia Beach with loungers and umbrellas reserved just for hotel guests. The spa offers highly indulgent treatments using exclusive products from Elemis and Ligne St. Barth. An entertainment deck features panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, twin saltwater pools surrounded by thick-cushioned sun loungers, a feet-in-the-water cocktail bar and the lunch restaurant, Nostos. Other eateries include the Sishu Sushi Bar, breakfast restaurant Meltemi with its sweeping ocean views, and à la carte Celebrities, serving up a wide selection of freshly caught seafood and typically Greek dishes.
As for accommodation, think typically white rooms with natural wood accents, with the option of a large terrace with a jacuzzi or private pool. Or upgrade to a suite for sensational sea views and a sweeping pool terrace.
