The Cycladic island of Mykonos and the unmistakably matriarch of sophisticated style, Jackie Onassis, go firmly hand-in-hand. Her frequent trips alongside European aristos, the super wealthy and the silver screen heroes, helped mark the era of travel and the golden age of glamour that put Mykonos firmly on the style map.
Fitting indeed is the iconic Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel – the favourite bolthole of Jackie. Complete renovations not only restored this iconic build, it also captured the spirit of an era. Today this discrete retreat oozes a sense of the modernist with bold bright colours of cyan dancing with heritage orange set against rustic stone and sleek furnishings.
Mykonos Theoxenia plays host to a relaxed, eclectic & urban scene, whereby fabulous touches of the nostalgic continue to reign – all right next to the landmark Windmills.
Just steps away, you can get lost between the cubist houses of Mykonos Town, the Chora, and the maze of curling narrow streets dotted with bulb-like churches. Almost everything is brushed in a violet whiteness, which once the sun goes down, throws a candescent glow; the streets hum to the tune of the night rhythm.
Book direct here, Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel, home of modernist glamour, right bang smack in the midst of town,off side from the crowds and noise – which is where you need to be.
