Surrender to serenity at the Myconian Utopia Resort, a fine boutique hotel in Mykonos that wears its name well. Here, on the cliffs above Elia Beach, you can hide away in the resort’s luxurious confines for as long as you like, but should you wish to mingle with the party crowd of Mykonos, a complimentary shuttle ride is at your beck and call.
The Myconian Utopia Resort teeters 300m above the shoreline to afford far-reaching views of the Aegean Sea. This mesmerising sight is compounded by the hotel’s glistening infinity pool; its sand-carpeted terrace and soft sun loungers, beckoning guests to come and relax with a drink in hand, soaking up this heavenly sight. Many of the rooms at Myconian Utopia Resort have their own private pools for couples seeking exclusive, romantic perches, the best of which also come with al fresco hot tubs. These are highly recommended, with more space to both sprawl out and lock yourselves away.
The rest of the accommodation doesn’t disappoint either. Picture nature-inspired boltholes that bring the outside in, with furniture hewn from wood and stone, including granite tubs big enough for two. Earthy shades, rattan chairs and macramé headboards are just some of these nods toward nature, coupled with stunning sea views from every room to evoke a tangibly calming atmosphere. While all individual retreats are sanctuary-like, the Grand Majestic Villa is the cream of the crop. Make the most of a 120sq m terrace with its infinity pool, Jacuzzi and barbecue, as well as up to five bedrooms and a sleek kitchen, where hotel chefs can happily do the work for you.
Elsewhere in the Myconian Utopia Resort, tempt yourself with spa treatments, dips in the thalassotherapy and indoor pools, or relaxing on one of the hotel’s sun loungers on Elia Beach. A free shuttle service then whisks you down to Mykonos’ most famous stretch of sand, and come evening, tuck into innovative Greek cuisine at Pavilion Restaurant, sampling delicious flavours while looking out across a moonlit Aegean Sea. This is the perfect start for a night of romance, whether you want to head into Mykonos Town and hit the clubs or stay cocooned in your decadent hideaway – the choice is yours.
65 rooms, suites and villas, with a balcony, king-size bed, rain shower and Nespresso machine (on request). Upgrades might include a private pool, Jacuzzi, in-room bathtub and living area. The Grand Majestic Villa has a 120sq m terrace, infinity pool, Jacuzzi, barbecue, up to five bedrooms and a kitchen.
