MYKONOS, GREECE

Boutique hotels on Mykonos

The island of Mykonos has long been known for its buzzing nightlife during the summer months, but over the past few years a new breed of luxury boutique hotels has been emerging on Mykonos making it one of the chicest places to stay in Greece. With an intoxicating mix of summer heat, herbs, sea air and beautiful beaches it isn't surprising that people are choosing Mykonos over Ibiza.Not only boutique hotels, but luxury self-catering options are appearing and providing guests with the services of a luxury hotel with the privacy of their own villa and private pools. Senses Luxury Villas and Suites in Elia, close to the beach, provide guests with a choice of both options making it the perfect choice for couples or friends and families. Senses Villa in Ornos on the other hand is a private luxury 5 bedroom, fully-equipped villa only a couple of miles from Mykonos town perfect for a couple of families. For the ultimate in luxury hotel experience and for the utterly romantic then Grace Mykonos ticks all of the boxed. This award-winning luxury hotel is just north of Mykonos town, perched about the sandy beach of Agios Stefanos. All ages of children are welcome and with mouth-watering food, beautiful interiors, a gym and spa, this is, in our opinion, the best boutique hotel on Mykonos.

Where to eat in and around Mykonos

If stay in Elia then the Elia Beach restaurant and bar is literally right on the water's edge - we suggest renting a lounger and umbrella and spending the day there until the sunsets. July and August are incredibly busy so if you are heading to the beach for the day make it an early morning start. In Paraga Scorpios restaurant/beach club has an organic menu and a boho-chic vibe with swaying palm trees, hammocks and oversized daybeds. In the north west of the island Kikis is a rustic tavern with no electricity which opens at midday - no reservations are accepted so either get there early or be expected to queue and have some patience! For great food and a super-cool atmosphere Alemagou in Ftelia is the place to be and its lobster pasta and grilled fresh catch of the day are difficult to beat. For a traditional classic Katrin is difficult to beat for dinner, tucked away between old churches and bougainvillae this 40 year old establishment is a Mykonos institution. Spilia a small restaurant by the water in Agia Anna serves the best sea-urchin pasta on the island.

Favourite beaches

For the adventurous, and if you have access to a boat, then you need to head to Skinos Lagoon bay on the island of Rineia, which is a nature reserve. It makes for a magical day out. Lia Beach and Fragia Beach are lovely and Elia Beach as mentioned above.

Insider tips and shopping

Enny Monaco sells beautiful hand made sandals and other must-have summer pieces. The Belveder hotel has a wonderful boutique selling bikinis, beach bags, sunglasses and jewellry. Divers should seek out Waldemar at the Kalafati Diving Centre where the visibility is so great at 40m wondrous sights can be had. Just outside Ano Mera, on the way to the beaches on the south of the island, The Fournos Veneti Bakery is worth a detour and whilst there visit the Monastery of Panagia Tourliani which dates back to the 16th-century.
