- Style Contemporary coastal cool
- Setting Aegean beach-side seclusion
Intimate spa hotel Grace Mykonos is the ideal beachside hideaway for the guest who wants more than a little pampering. At this stylish sanctuary, modern paintings hang over bountiful bedding, and contemporary furniture sits comfortably in the white-on-white rooms. But be sure to breakfast on your room’s balcony with views of the azure Aegean before ordering up a poolside frozen fruit shot.

In the know
- Our favourite rooms All rooms have enormous puffy day-beds, refreshingly spacious bathrooms and most have sea-facing balconies, but the VIP Suite is reached by its own elevator and includes a private, fully furnished verandah with Jacuzzi. In the Grace Suite, you can access the capacious indoor-outdoor hot tub via the walk-in shower, which itself doubles as a steam room. The Honeymoon Suite at the top of the complex offers stunning ocean views from its terrace, where you and your beloved can enjoy a Jacuzzi with drinks from the adjacent wet bar.
- Packing tips Aspirin, to combat the after-effects of Mykonos’ renowned nightlife (or too many hot-tub tipples).
- Also Be sure to look out for Petros the Pelican, the waterside resident who has been the island’s official mascot for half a century. The spotting scope in the library, which provides great views of the town, should help.
