The sixties captured everything modern, it marked a revolution in fashion, music, art & design with a sense of the exotic, it was and remains the escapism of counter, or cookie culture.
Mykonos has always been a Mecca for jetset lifestyle and the Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel was built at the height of this vibrant era. It was conceived by that master architect, Aris Kostantinides, below, with his signature low-rise structures with clean lines and exactness.
After a complete refurbishment by equally talented Greek design team Angelos Angelopoulos and Yiannis Tsimas, the aesthetics of modernism are staged against a tribute of strong 60’s elements creating a retro signature.
Scandinavian influenced furnishings marry with that of a rural Mediterranean simplicity bring with it the low slim turquoise sofas, oiled teaks, bamboo framed rockers in chartreuse green, scarlet red bedside lamps with tall oversized shades, stone floors offset with Rya rugs and those ubiquitous long sideboards. Rich, loud and vibrant colour blocks borrowed from Pop-art scene bring in a fashionable highlight with tangy bursts of cyan and crisp lime.
Several new commissions were created for the hotel, such as the beautiful molded chairs, above, created by Ron Adler.

The Theoxenia enjoys perhaps the best location on the island and certainly in the cute Mykonos town. It borders the Aegean below tucked discretely behind the iconic Windmills and is set in landscaped gardens that surround the Cycladic stonewalls.
Mykonos Theoxenia is a glam icon that evokes smooth jetsetter luxury, always in vogue.
