Our favourite rooms
There’s a hint of driftwood chic in San Giorgio’s calm, cool and comfortable whitewashed rooms: you’ll find bleached-wood stools, thick home-spun rugs, and hand-beaten metal bowls arranged around inviting beds draped in airy mosquito nets. Room 80 is lovely, with plenty of sunlight, a white-painted pebble floor, and an irresistible bed from which guests can look out to sea. For sun lovers and master idlers, the Famosa Suite has a dreamy sea-view veranda, with a cosy cocoon of a hammock for languorous lounging.
Turquoise and translucent, the unheated saltwater pool is perched above the Aegean and surrounded by a wooden deck dotted with palm-trees. Inviting hammocks are strung between the stone pillars of a gazebo, and there are sunloungers and long communal tables to enjoy cold drinks and nibbles from the pool bar.
Body paint for nights at Paradise Club; bright swimwear for days by the pool.
Mykonos is a haven for hedonists (you can even suntan au naturel at Paraga Beach). Party-seekers can head to Paradise Club, the sleek hangout for the island’s well-heeled crowd run by San Giorgio’s owners: guests get free transfers and VIP treatment.
Pets are welcome at no extra charge. See more pet-friendly hotels in Mykonos.
San Giorgio’s more of a couples’ hideaway (the pool is adults-only).
San Giorgio Mykonos treads lightly: the hotel uses eco-friendly cleaning products and toiletries, and is equipped with solar panels and water-saving low-flow taps. In the kitchen, the emphasis is on fresh, local food from the island’s markets.
