At a Glance
Subtly built into the hillside ten minutes north of Mykonos Town, the 32–room Mykonos Grace offers a boutique option for couples looking to escape the notorious island buzz.
- Two-bedroom sea view suite for families of up to five
- Terrace plunge pools on nearly half the accommodations
- Roof top terrace of the Honeymoon Suite
Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a glass of Champagne and ushered to a comfy white couch in an open-air lounge facing the sea. The first floor of the hotel consists of a small reception desk, which sits between the massage room and a chic boutique selling local Greek designers. An elevator whisks guests up to the pool level, where day beds are strewn haphazardly overlooking the sea. Various accommodations encircle the small pool; though, the most coveted ones are those on the highest floors with the most direct ocean views.
The décor is simple and crisp – blond wood, white duvets and down pillows and dark marble bathrooms with rainfall showers. Touches like pillow menus and prepared baskets of such goodies as sunblock, local honey, hats and shirts are some of the ways in which the Grace emphasizes its focus on service, distinguishing itself from the buzzier hotels on the island. The hotel restaurant serves all day, but with town so close, most guests choose to dine off property.
Who Should Stay
Young couples looking for a boutique experience less than a ten-minute drive from town; the property is very compact and those who stay should expect to spend their days off property. Travelers with children should inquire about the Superior Suite, the best accommodation for families.
