Mykonos Theoxenia hotel brings a 1960s glamor to one of the great islands in the Greek Cyclades archipelago, expertly blending a cutting-edge chic with the breezy joie de vivre.
From the voluptuous curves of the deep-blue Fjord bar stools to the organic sensibility of stone pillars, Mykonos Theoxenia oozes the relaxed elegance of modern-era jet-setter luxury.
Eight decades of heritage
The hotel’s original historic design by Aris Kostantinides, one of Greece’s most revered architects from the 1960s, incorporates local stone and traditional Cycladic architecture that has stood the test of time, well enough to be considered for national preservation by the Greek Ministry of Civilisation.
The hotel’s modern designers did not stray far from the late Kostantinides’ master plan, opting to revamp the 1960s glam interiors while bringing the hotel up to the most modern design standards. Selected period furniture made of light beech wood pays tribute to the design era in which Theoxenia exploded onto the Greek hotel scene.
Blending into the landscape
Stone-clad walls, orange, and turquoise hessian fabrics and sweeping minimal surfaces all create a backdrop for deep blue bar stools, as well as accents of bright lime, orange, and red — all this set against the strong Cycladic themes of white and blue.
Mykonos Theoxenia harmoniously melds with Mykonos’s radiant seascape. The low-rise structure of this fifty-two-room property occupies a prime location—right next to the stark white windmills that are the island’s trademark while offering stunning views of the Aegean Sea below.
The hotel experience
During the day, sun-worshippers can soak up golden rays on white Moroso beach chairs or luxuriate within curtained four-poster beds facing out to the Aegean.
Later, they can chill out among the cool stone details and crisp turquoise, citrus and white decor by designer Angelos Angelopoulos. His novel use of energetic colors renders the design experience as exciting and joyful as a bowl of ripe fruit.
