Within a stone’s throw from Mykonos Town so that you don’t miss out on its vibrant dining and nightlife scene, yet sufficiently set back from the action to ensure a good night’s rest, this luxe hotel comprises individually styled suites with playful nods to the island’s nautical heritage in the form of rope and fishing-net light fixtures. Sea views are de rigueur – seen from the rooms, the whitewashed terrace strewn with cushions and the poolside Bilo Bar Restaurant, which specialises in seasonal cuisine accompanied by imaginative cocktails.
