Once the stomping ground of 60’s icons Jackie O and Brigitte Bardot, the new and improved Mykonos Theoxenia has opened in the island’s most sought after location on the coast of Kato Mili this July. The extensive renovation presents top to bottom changes, with a completely new look, ushering a welcome era of minimalism in Mykonos. The hotel captures classic Greek simplicity and sophistication, in a notion referred to locally as ‘Greeknessence’. Below are three reasons the return of this legendary 49 room hotel should be on your radar this summer:
- A 10 MONTH TRANSFORMATION: Since October 2021 Mykonos Theoxenia has undergone extensive refurbishment inside and out. A building that broke all norms for being ahead of its time has now, with the help of VOIS architects revived its interiors and exteriors to bring mythic design into the present day. The hotel lobby has been completely transformed and the hotel can now host double the occupancy than it’s previous capacity. Embedded within a culturally protected domain, the key focus was maintaining the traditional Cycladic building techniques used when the building was first built in 1960. The hotel exterior is formed of the same stone that constitutes the existing sea walls. The hotel look has been stripped back to its original style from the 1960s, when it was built by architect Aris Konstantinidis, with added touches for contemporary comfort.
- TIMELESS GREEK VALUES: Experience the spirit of Greeknessence, Theoxenia’s philosophy of spontaneous, authentic and heartfelt hospitality. Life at Theoxenia starts with a blissful swim in the crystal-clear Aegean, followed by a nourishing breakfast of local fruits, Greek pastries and freshly made omelettes. Embark on a boat trip to the island of Delos or celebrate the full moon with a bonfire at the beach before indulging in a diverse menu of Mediterranean flavours at the hotel’s starlit restaurant ‘Kou Kou Bar’. Here you can enjoy signature cocktails with classic Greek salads, fresh fish or grilled meats, against a panoramic view of the ocean.
- STATE OF THE ART FACILITIES: The new Mykonos Theoxenia boasts cutting-edge accommodation (37 new rooms, 8 deluxe suites and 4 signature suites with stunning views, private pools and a terrace), a spectacular pool overlooking the ocean and spacious grounds that are home to outdoor yoga classes, beautiful orange trees and spectacular viewpoints. The hotel offers private cruises to the island’s picturesque bays and guided tours to the neighbouring islands of Rineia and Delos. Adventurous guests can enjoy private snorkelling lessons and scuba-diving excursions to discover underwater ruins that date to the Ancient Greek Empire.
