Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Perched in the picturesque Ornos Bay just a short drive from the bars and boutiques of Mykonos Town, Kivotos Mykonos is one of the most luxurious retreats on the island. The architecture of this elegant getaway resembles a Cycladic village, with blazing whitewashed walls adorned with pastel doorways and window shutters dressed in flowing bougainvillea. Within, Kivotos is a visual feast, with chic minimalist interiors decorated with over 2000 antiques and unique objets d’art from around the world.
As may be expected by the luxurious settings, the facilities at Kivotos are truly impressive, with two swimming pools, a spa and wellness centre, private beach and even a private sailing yacht all available for your use. The restaurants serve excellent Mediterranean-inspired dishes, and there are private dining options if you’re looking for something just that little bit more special. Close enough to Mykonos’ world-famous clubs and beaches for party animals, while secluded and peaceful enough for those that simply want to bliss out, Kivotos is the perfect Mykonos retreat.
Begin your day with the expansive breakfast buffet; served on the terrace overlooking Ornos Bay, it features a range of authentic Greek treats as well as international favourites. In the evening, the terrace is transformed into La Meduce, the hotel’s more formal gourmet restaurant serving fresh Mediterranean food, perfect for candlelit dinners. For more casual meals, head to Le Pirate, located on the poolside terrace.
If you’re after a particularly special evening, the hotel can arrange romantic private dining experiences. Enjoy a candlelit meal on the privacy of a charming wooden jetty as the sea softly laps beneath your feet, or even on the hotel’s yacht.
The saltwater pool is home to a swim-up cocktail bar, open throughout the day. Alternatively, the hotel’s main bar is a very chic spot to savour a sundowner, or perhaps sample one of the many fine cigars from the extensive collection.
Each of the rooms and suites are styled in a quintessential Mediterranean minimalism, with whitewashed walls adorned with local artefacts and splashes of pastel. Each of the rooms and suites have views over the gardens or the bay, and are equipped with showers or bathtubs.
Relax during the sultry summer months in one of the hotel’s two swimming pools; choose from the saltwater pool overlooking the private beach, or the freshwater pool nestled in the hotel’s verdant gardens. Both pools are equipped with open-air Jacuzzis, perfect for when you fancy an indulgent soak. If you’d rather swim in the azure waters of the sea, then look no further than the hotel’s private beach nestled beneath the cliffs. Equipped with comfortable sun-loungers, its the perfect place for a spot of sunbathing.
If you feel like treating yourself, book an appointment in the hotel’s elegant spa. The elegant area features a beautifully mosaicked steam room, and offers a range of pampering massages and treatments making use of luxurious Anne Semonin products. There’s also a fully equipped gym and squash court for those who want to stick to their fitness regimes; yoga classes can also be arranged on the beachside decking.
For a truly unforgettable experience, you can arrange the use of the hotel’s private yacht. A 25-metre schooner, the Prince de Neufchatel is modelled on an American privateer of the same name, which was renowned as one of the fastest ships of the War of 1812. You can make use of the yacht to explore Mykonos and the neighbouring islands, and it can also be rented out for private functions.
