After a 30-minute drive from the airport (we recommend taking the free transfer service to avoid car rental confusion), you will arrive at the Arcadia Hotel. The property is less than a 10-minute walk from the picturesque village of Oia, making it a natural addition to your sightseeing checklist.

design: Combining a rustic, natural exterior with sophisticated interiors, Arcadia is a rustic contemporary paradise. The rooms are arranged in tiers and strategically stacked to provide privacy and beautiful views. Rattan and wicker accents stand out in the open-concept floor plan for a minimalistic bohemian vibe. A low-loft king-size bed and daybed make post-pool naps easy. The true star of the show is the view.

There’s a good chance my jaw didn’t lift off the ground while staying at the Calimykonos, a new hotel away from the heavily populated tourist areas of Mykonos Town. An eco-friendly jewel perched on a sea of ​​rocky cliffs, Cali Mykonos invites nature with its self-sustaining water system without disturbing the natural landscape. The lobby mimics his gallery of pristine art, with sleek furnishings and modern artwork too sleek to sit in. It’s a sexy, luxurious, privacy-first treasure for someone in need of some serious alone time where the only distraction you’ll entertain is to order another cocktail. Redefine leisure with one-of-a-kind classics.

atmosphere: When you arrive you’ll be met by charming staff who seem like you’ve known them for years. Cycladic hotels have a familiar elegance, spreading warmth that makes you feel right at home.

Participants can participate in a variety of activities, but the leisurely lull persuades them to doze off again.

dining: Breakfast is included at Cali Mykonos. Here you can enjoy pastries baked to satisfy your sweet tooth. Cali Restaurant offers the most beautiful plates and haute cuisine using local ingredients, prepared by Michelin-starred chef Lefteris Lazarou.

As you step into this countryside, you’ll feel like you’re magically disappearing into a beach-themed snow globe. Carilo is an acronym for ‘Creating a life to fall in love’ and the resort lives and breathes by this mantra. You can find them carved into walls as installations and written as affirmations everywhere you look. The sun pours over the rock formations, exposing the beauty that nature hides and enhancing the hundreds of olive trees on the property. Calilo has a slightly pristine feel, sheltered from the outside world. Get ready for a quiet, romantic getaway to cherish for a lifetime.

design: The walls of the colorful lobby are adorned with handcrafted mosaics (repeated throughout the resort). Marble, granite, and stone make up the majority of the structure, but thanks to the wave-like cutouts, there’s a playful freshness to the oasis. A swing near the infinity pool invites you to relax all day long. Open the door to a jacuzzi, pool, and outdoor shower that blends with panoramic views of the resort. The generous suite has a bedroom clad in gray marble that flows into the bathroom. Have an architect recreate it in your space.

atmosphere: I used to get up before dawn every morning to bathe in the sunrise. Silence descended upon the resort, and it was a time of self-discovery. beach cabana. Carilo is a sanctuary for newlyweds and those who want to make self-care a priority.
