Mykonos, Greece

Santa Marina

A Luxury Collection Hotel

What it is

It’s a quiet, secluded, child-friendly Mykonos retreat.

What it isn't

The rave that defines the bass-heavy stereotype of the island.

What we think

Spread over 20 acres on a secluded peninsula, the Santa Marina is the only hotel on the island with its own private beach. The complex’s 96 bright white rooms and luxury bungalows are scattered up the terraced hillside, overlooking the aquamarine Ornos Bay and the sparkling Aegean. As a property of the Starwood Hotel Luxury Collection, the resort underwent a three-year, almost 11 million dollar renovation. When it reopened in 2014, the resort unveiled casually sophisticated beachy interiors inside the whitewashed, low Cycladic buildings. The guestrooms are stylishly done - think lots of teak, lots of linen and lots of stone and shell - the villas all have private pools. Down at the resort’s pebble beach, guests can nosh on snacks either at Buddha Bar or on one of the lounge chairs under a thatched umbrella. At the top of the resort, up many stairs and overlooking the pool, sits the Colonial Pool Restaurant where guests are offered Greek meze as well as a host of sea-sourced dishes. Complimentary shuttle service brings guests to Chora - “the town” or “Mykonos Town” - where they can check out Little Venice or visit any of the bevy of restaurants and shops. As a fun fact, the hotel not only has its very own helipad, but it also has a helicopter for rent, and a private jet is on stand-by mode at the island's airport.

Note that this property is open May through September.

You're here because

Mykonos is the classic Greek Isle: you want to soak in the Mediterranean sun, stare off into the sparkling blue water and generally retreat into island life.

The Moment

On the balcony of the Colonial, skin glowing from the day’s intake of abundant sunshine, you lean back in the teak chair and swirl a glass of white in your hand. While looking out to where the bright sapphire water meets the brilliant blue sky, a waiter comes and begins to lay out the afternoon’s mezze: hummus and olives, seared octopus and dolmas, tabbouleh and grilled halloumi - the small dishes cover the table.

Location

On the southwestern side of Mykonos, tucked into a cove, it’s roughly a mile from the center of Mykonos Town and a 10 to 15 minute drive to the airport.
