The top party spot on the Cyclades islands, Mykonos is also a place to unwind – particularly at the quieter beginning and end of the summer season, around May or October. Attracting architects and hoteliers from Greece’s main cities, it’s spoilt for grand designs and devilishly luxurious hangouts, where Greece’s jet set (not to mention half of Europe) come to mingle, recover and repeat. If lounging by the pool is a major part of your itinerary, read on for our pick of the best hotels with pools on Mykonos.

1. Harmony Boutique Hotel

If you’re seeking style, spa and serene swims, Harmony is the see-and-be-seen crashpad for you. Close to the buzz of Mykonos town, its large, jagged slab of blue pool attracts boho-chic couples and groups of friends. Its buildings are in dazzling white with linen canopies and powder-blue painted balconies. Rooms have prettily tiled bathrooms and raw-wood headboards, for a light, breezy, beach-house feel.

2. Olia Hotel

With spacious, open-plan rooms and a minimalist aesthetic, you decompress instantly as you enter the smooth-edged, sage-shuttered Olia Hotel. At the relaxed, alfresco Meze on Port restaurant, zingy beetroot salad and fresh squid are served up with flair, while a huge, curvaceous pool has more than enough room for an exclusive crowd of guests. It’s a quiet location, but you’re only a 15-minute walk away from Mykonos Town, with its labyrinthine whitewashed houses and windmills.

3. Semeli Hotel

The stylish monochrome cocktail bar, brightened by zesty green cushions and lit by storm lanterns, is the place to be at this trendy stay – though its top-notch gym and herbal-scented spa (widely regarded as the best in Mykonos Town) are just as popular. Rooms are kept in smart greys and whites, and some have sultry plunge pools or whirlpool tubs. Most seductive is the huge, rippling pool, trimmed with a part-shaded patio and generous sun loungers, which, at night, takes on a nightclub feel, thanks to twinkling LED lights.

4. Hotel Petinos

With its luminous shallows and palm-thatched parasols, Platis Gialos Beach draws families as well as glamorous jet-setters. It’s backed by a scattering of stylish hotels, including Petinos, which will wow you with the dazzling grand design of its pool terrace, all charcoal beanbag chairs and sunken palms. Interiors are just as soothing, with pine-accented whites and seashell motifs. Catch a boat from the beach to visit other, more secluded coves.

5. Nissaki Boutique Hotel

Psarou Beach is the posey, party beach on Mykonos, and Nissaki Boutique Hotel has the slightly blingy beach-club aesthetic to match, with veiled cabanas, circular daybeds and alfresco dining tables all looking out to the sea. Faced with a ravishing rectangular pool, inset with loungers on wooden platforms, guests take lounging breaks only to traipse off to the spa or retreat to the shade of the healthy-chic Phos Restaurant, which has lots of tempting veggie options.

6. Palladium Hotel

With beaten-copper lamps, bohemian murals and curious fringed chandeliers wiggling on the ceiling like a coral reef, this striking design hotel is a step away from Greece’s usual whitewashed simplicity. Outside, crochet canopies cast pretty ripples across cushioned daybeds around the pool, but prettiest of all is the “forest” of wood and foliage that trims the buffet restaurant. Topped off with an exceptionally friendly staff, this is one of the best hotels in Platis Gialos.

7. Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge

Sitting out by the pool on balmy evenings is an absolute treat at this boutique-chic hotel, its plump sofas overlooking the twinkling lights of the infinity pool as it meets the expanse of the ocean beyond. Close to the soft sands of Megali Ammos Beach, the hotel’s hyper-modern rooms have minimalist lights hanging from long strings, egg-shaped, freestanding baths, Nespresso machines and (for some) generous patios, some with private plunge pools and Jacuzzis.

8. Boheme Mykonos Adults Only – Small Luxury Hotels of the World

Luxury is baked into this couples’ favourite, a short walk from Mykonos Town. Charcoal and black accents give clean white rooms an edge, yoga sessions in the garden start your day right, and a pool bar serves beats and cocktails to loungers and length-swimmers. Take your breakfast on the breezy terrace, or order it straight to your room – and be sure to be by the pool bar in time for the smouldering sunsets the island has to offer.
