Scorpios and San Giorgio Hotel, Mykonos, Greece

Always a top destination for private jets in the summer, Mykonos has lasting appeal. Design Hotels now adds two idyllic retreats, and a beach club, to the choice of accommodation available on the Island of the Winds.

On a private section of Elia Beach, Myconian Avaton rises from the bare rock, featuring traditional Cycladic architecture, blending local stone with white walls and wooden windows; spa and wellness facilities; and its 85 harmoniously designed rooms, suites, and two- to four-bedroom villas.

Myconian Kyma offers a restful retreat just outside the buzz of Mykonos Town.  The 81-room hotel offers a tailored approach to meet every need, from day trips to ancient cities, the best beaches, water sports and horseback riding, to assisting with private yachts and even the hire of the hotel’s own helicopter.

The laidback, luxurious and holistic beach club Scorpios Mykonos offers DJs, live music, a health-focused Mediterranean menu, and fresh juice elixirs to nurture a spirit of organic togetherness. Dancing under stars encouraged.
