A stylish hideaway perched on the western flank of Mykonos, De.Light overlooks the UNESCO-listed island of Delos, mythical birthplace of the gods Artemis and Apollo. The décor is quintessential Mediterranean elegance, with whitewashed walls and minimalist, contemporary furnishings and playful Hellenic printed fabrics.
A stay at De.Light is all about kicking back and unwinding beside the infinity pool, as the splendour of the glittering Aegean stretches below. Enjoy a pampering massage, or head to Agios Ioannis beach just below the hotel. In the evening, retire to the poolside bar and watch as the sunset streaks the sky with bold purple and burning amber.
Start your day with a breakfast of fresh, local produce including eggs, cheeses, sausages, creamy Greek yoghurt and freshly-baked breads and pastries. Throughout the day, the poolside bar and lounge serves refreshments and light bites. For more substantial meals, the hotel’s restaurant serves traditional, local recipes inspired by Ancient Greek hospitality and traditions on the beautiful poolside terrace.
The minimalist style of the 18 rooms and suites provides comfort without distracting from the gorgeous sea views given by each suite. Bathrooms are equipped with powerful showers and artisanal toiletries. For a special treat, splash out on the pricier suites which feature private balconies complete with outdoor hot tubs.
The large infinity pool is surrounded by spacious sun-beds, perfect for basking in the Greek sunshine. After a day spent bronzing, pamper yourself with a rejuvenating massage at the hotel’s wellness area or in the comfort of your own room. De.Light has sun-beds reserved on Agios Ioannis beach, located just a short walk from the hotel; film buffs may recognise the beach as the setting for many scenes from the movie Shirley Valentine.
If you’re not content to spend your days lounging in the sunshine, take a boat trip to the nearby island of Delos. This UNESCO World Heritage site was considered holy by the Ancient Greeks as the mythical birthplace of the goddess Artemis and her twin brother Apollo. Once the site of a sprawling temple and city complex, the island is now one of the most important archaeological areas in Greece.
