Beside Santorini, Mykonos stands out as one of Greece's most renowned travel destinations. It belongs to the Cycladic archipelago, gracefully extending into the Aegean Sea. Mykonos distinguishes itself as the livelier and more party-focused relative of Santorini. With vibrant beachfront clubs and chic luxury resorts, it's celebrated for its idyllic white-sand beaches—a feature that sets it apart from the rocky landscapes of Santorini.
However, there's more to Mykonos than the vibrant nightlife of Paradise Beach or the bustling festivities of Mykonos Town. Here, you'll discover a range of accommodations, from beachfront resorts to charming boutique hotels and lavish villas. These trendy lodgings seamlessly blend tranquility and well-being, offering an escape from the party scene. Many of these accommodations feature luxurious private infinity pools or hot tubs.
Kalesma is a relatively new five-star luxury hotel overlooking Ornos Bay, featuring pristine white-washed walls and breathtaking views of the sparkling sea. It distinguishes itself from the vibrant party scene and bustling beaches that characterize this popular Greek island.
The hotel boasts 27 opulent rooms, each a haven that will make you reluctant to depart. Envision spacious villas complete with private (and heated) infinity pools, both indoor and outdoor showers, sumptuous king-size beds, Cycladic gardens, and a design that encapsulates the elusive Myconian minimalism. If you can manage to tear yourself away from your personal paradise, indulge in one of the hotel's curated experiences. From Mediterranean cooking classes to shopping excursions leading you to the nearby Mykonos Town, there's a world of exploration awaiting your discovery.
This beachfront resort has it all: Aegean Sea views, quiet white-sand beaches, and a short walk to bustling Mykonos Town. Rooms, in classic Greek style, offer private balconies, garden-facing terraces, or sea views.

Relax at the Althea Luxury Spa, named after the Greek healing goddess, offering facials, massages, and wellness therapies, including the Aegean body scrub.
This stunning five-star hotel rests on a private beach in Ornos Bay, one of the island's finest. Despite its popularity, it maintains privacy on its gated peninsula. Just 15 minutes from Mykonos Island Airport, it even has its own helipad. The resort boasts 114 rooms and villas, many with private plunge pools. Rooms at Santa Marina are stylish and unique, deviating from the typical minimalist Mykonos decor. They feature natural elements like bamboo accents and wooden furniture, with crisp white bedding and black decor.
The hotel also provides tennis courts, an adults-only pool, a kids' club, and excellent Wi-Fi coverage.
This luxurious beachfront hotel offers a serene and exclusive experience, setting it apart from the island's party scene. It features 40 villas designed to resemble Cycladic houses, nestled between mountains and offering sea views. Each villa comes with a private pool, and the hotel's design seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor spaces.
The property has its own private beach and a saltwater infinity pool at its heart, providing swimmers with stunning Aegean Sea views. Be sure to dine at the on-site restaurant, offering a menu inspired by local Greek ingredients.
