The many jewels of Mykonos sparkle temptingly—ancient ruins, incredible beach clubs, water sports and more—and staying at Amyth of Mykonos puts you within easy striking distance of them all. But when you’re ensconced in such gorgeous surrounds, you’d be forgiven for forgoing the sights for a day and simply chilling in your hedonistic hideaway.
A day in at Amyth might start with a luxurious lie-in, awakening to an expansive view of the shimmering blues of the Aegean from your bed. Five-star hotels in Mykonos already have an enviable reputation for style, but Amyth suites have raised the bar considerably. Soothing earthy interiors, with natural fabrics, textures and decorations, create a calm, almost ethereal ambience that invites introspection, connection—to self or loved ones—and an away-from-it-all vibe. Sumptuous touches such as an espresso machine, Bang and Olufsen Bluetooth speakers and Acqua di Parma bathroom amenities mean guests have every excuse to while away a lazy morning here simply adjusting to the rhythm of Mykonian life.
Emerge, hungry, to indulge in an a la carte breakfast in the Mediterranean sunshine. Enjoy the salty sea breeze as you select from a range of savoury and sweet delicacies to ease into your day, island-style. Think homemade Greek pie, Mykonos’ famed pie; locally sourced Greek yoghurt drizzled with local thyme honey; or some simple traditional bread, with a side of plump olives. This is holiday cuisine, made for slow mornings in bare feet.
Before meandering poolside, perhaps a stop at the beautifully curated Kult boutique is in order for a browse. Designer beachwear, plus the latest resort-focused collections from luxury global brands offer a chance for a wardrobe refresh.
With a new hat, new sunglasses, and a favourite kaftan, it’s time to settle down for some serious relaxation by Amyth of Mykonos’ pool, either solo or with friends in tow. Grab a lounge chair under an umbrella, savour the boho chilled-chic setting, then ease into an uninterrupted daydream…
Solo travellers will particularly love the heartfelt hospitality staff are known for here—gently intuitive, they know when to chat, and when silence is golden. For the ultimate special event, groups of friends or family can make an exclusive party buy out of the whole 17-room property. While there are many luxury places to stay in Mykonos, intimate properties like this one - where every heartfelt detail is considered, and the welcome remains authentic - are rare. For events from weddings to parties and retreats, the bar and pool form a wonderful focus point for memorable, soulful gatherings.
Time to consider lunch? Maintain that chilled, easy pace—the Amyth Kouzina serves an array of snacks to graze over throughout the afternoon.
2:00pm—Siesta and Spa
With rooms so serenely inviting, a ‘day in’ definitely involves an afternoon siesta. The Mediterraneans have perfected the art of the nap, and in Greece, it’s a near-sacred tradition. Retreat to your Mykonos suite for a rest and you’ll be rejuvenated and refreshed in order to make the most of a long, languid night ahead.
For an afternoon treat, book a spa massage session to bring body, mind and soul back into blissful alignment. Whether it’s tired dancing feet that need some energising or an office-sore back needing a little focused attention, Amyth of Mykonos therapists offer super-personalised service along with a healing, therapeutic touch that leaves you floating in peaceful serenity.
6:00pm—Dusk and Dinner
Mykonos sunsets are legendary and Amyth of Mykonos is a dramatic vantage point for watching the curtain of the night sky slowly drape over the horizon. Call on the hotel’s WhatsApp room service to order in some handcrafted cocktails to sip, perhaps from your outdoor hot tub, or as you relax on your terrace.
Come dinner, the home-from-home style Amyth Kouzina beckons. Here, amid a welcoming décor that features heritage Cycladic touches, you’ll find enticing local flavours gently elevated into delicious dishes that encourage convivial conversation and lingering into the night. The genuine passion of the culinary team is on display in each and every dish, with local ingredients prioritised and given the attention they deserve to really sing. Add in some local Mykonos wine, perhaps followed by an after-dinner, ice-cold ouzo, and your Amyth of Mykonos suite is going to be calling you back home for the sweetest, most divine dreams.
And tomorrow? Tomorrow is when Mykonos can reveal her grandeur to you.
