Whether sinking into the swimming pool, or savouring the sunset from one of the hotel’s two restaurants, San Marco Hotel is the perfect spot for those who want to enjoy a tranquil getaway on Mykonos. The traditional décor - cool, Cycladic whites; splashes of inky blue - is stylishly minimalist, and throughout the hotel there’s a real impression of light and space.
Relaxation is the order of the day at San Marco. The deckchair-lined saltwater pool is particularly inviting during the sultry summer months, and if you fancy a spot of pampering there’s a hammam spa offering a range of indulgent treatments and massages. Situated above the peaceful Houlakia Bay, San Marco is a bit further away from the island’s famous nightlife, but it more than makes up with this with its serene setting, and the views over the neighbouring islands of Syros and Tinos are truly spectacular.
The poolside bar is open throughout the day, and during the night is transformed into a candlelit hang-out spot. Pythari, the first of San Marco’s two restaurants, is also situated beside the pool, and serves a menu of traditional Greek taverna cuisine. For more romantic meals, be sure to book a table at Veranda, the hotel’s evening-only restaurant, which boasts spectacular sunset views.
The hotel’s traditional Cycladic aesthetic is continued throughout the 84 bedrooms and suites. Many of the rooms are equipped with their own private balconies or terraces overlooking either the mountains, landscaped gardens or the Aegean. The suites, with their extra living areas and sleeping options, are perfect for those that are looking for a touch more space, while the stand-alone villas, some of which have their own private swimming pools, are perfect for larger groups.
Enjoy the views as you bask beside the hotel’s spacious saltwater swimming pool, or treat yourself to a session at the hotel’s Houlakia Boutique Hammam Spa. Indulge with one of the range of massage therapies or facial treatments on offer, or sweat it out in the elegant Hammam steam bath. If you’re of an active disposition, enjoy a game on the hotel’s tennis court.
Well-known for its rather hedonistic nightlife, there’s plenty more to Mykonos than beach-clubs and big-name DJs. Take a trip to the town of Mykonos during the day for sun-kissed strolls along the winding, cobbled streets, filled with independent boutiques selling a range of luxurious handicrafts. Be sure to meander down to the beautiful ‘Little Venice’, where historic merchant’s houses open directly onto the sea.
