Rooms and suites serve up the very best in Greek-inspired refinement, unpretentious yet stylish, with colourful flower borders on the white-washed walls and private balconies with Jacuzzis or small private pools available in select suites. Katikies Mykonos takes a lead from its sister property on Santorini, and indeed from the common vernacular of the Cyclades, ascending a hillside in a series of white cuboid blocks linked by alleys and steep staircases. Importantly, there is disabled and buggy access if required.
The public areas are stylishly finishes, with pared-back elegance punctuated by decorative flourishes and splashes of colour in the accessories and furnishings. Seltz, the breezy main bar and restaurant, overlooks the lower pool and main entrance, and is the focal point of the hotel. Climb your way to the top of the hotel and you’ll find a second infinity pool, unusually bordered by sand and palm trees, from where the views of the bay are stupendous. It's the perfect spot to relax with a sundowner. This is also the location of Mikrasia, the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant which offers fusion Mediterranean and Asian food in a low-key, toes-in-the-sand setting.
Of course, you'll want to take in a treatment or two at the stunning spa. Embraced by the earth, this indulgent retreat is built as a handcrafted refuge. All of the cabins have a treatment-oriented design and a concept based on couples’ integration. Highly trained therapists and luxurious spa products are to pamper, relax, purify and renew. Among the Mediterranean inspired baths and massages, there are couples’ sessions, feet washing rituals, rejuvenating facial and body treatments.
Then, for that personal touch, the hotel's concierge service – Katkies Club – offers everything from private yacht tours to wine tastings.
