One of the most popular and glamorous of the Greek isles, Mykonos welcomes the newest member of its family of luxury hotels Myconian Kyma. Part of Design Hotels, the lavish sanctuary is scheduled to open on May 1 2017. The design of Myconian Kyma is influenced by history, landscape, and climate, the architectural language of the Cyclades. Perched atop a hill with glorious views of the Aegean Sea, the 52-room, 29-suite property is a luxurious and secluded retreat, yet only a short stroll from the heart of the island’s thriving nightlife in Mykonos Town.
Borrowing its name from the Greek word for “wave”, the design of the hotel is sophisticated with undulating elements: the curved lines of the multi-level infinity pool or the design and furniture seen throughout the whitewashed structures. Lush gardens, private pools or terraces, a world-class steakhouse, and a full-service spa, make it a truly sophisticated yet family-friendly property.
Crafted to blend harmoniously into its timeless environment, the hotel subtly and sublimely embraces guests in wellness and tranquility with such telling architectural flourishes as suites with infinity pools or Jacuzzis, bold white Cycladic forms, sun-dappled terraces, and those endless sea views.
A picturesque Cycladic town with a maze of small streets and whitewashed houses and churches, Mykonos Town is set around a harbor and home to iconic 16th-century windmills, art galleries, cafés, stylish bars, shops, and restaurants. High-end boutiques, such as Dsquared2, Burberry, and Louis Vuitton, are part of the mix. Here, too, one finds the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Folklore Museum, perfect for those seeking a thorough introduction to the area’s rich cultural and economic history. The island’s multiple perfect sand beaches are only minutes away by car, and for the explorers, a day trip to Delos (a short boat ride away) is a must do.
