Brand new boutique hotel, Yi Hotel Mykonos brings an oasis of comfort, serenity and elegance to cosmopolitan travellers looking for an indulgent break.

Nestled on the hilltop of Elia Beach, overlooking the Aegean Sea, Yi Hotel Mykonos fuses transcendent minimalism with elegance for a lavish, well-appointed stay in one of their 42 guest rooms and suites, all with private pools and hot tubs. Some of their stellar amenities include a swimming pool featuring a resident DJ, spa, fitness centre and a restaurant inspired by Cycladic traditional cuisine.

Yi Hotel Mykonos offers a detox escape from everyday life. The name “Yi” - “Yi” meaning “earth” and “land” in Greek and “one” in Japanese – reflects its minimalist, simple and modern style and depicts the interconnectivity between the elements of earth, wind and water.

An exquisite dining experience awaits guests at Sibà Restaurant, managed by renowned chef, George Stylianoudakis. With more than 25 years in the culinary world, George Stylianoudakis has worked alongside Alain Ducasse at Plaza Athenee, Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, Quique Dacosta Restaurant and Noma Restaurant.

Growing up in the United States in a restaurant family business, he left his international career to follow his enduring love for food from his motherland, Crete, where he became known as a master of Cycladic and Cretan techniques. He has precisely combined both Cycladic and Cretan cuisines for Sibà and made it a priority to focus on fresh local products hand-picked from the island’s farms. Guests will explore the flavours of a distinct cuisine, combining centuries-old knowledge with contemporary techniques.

Sibà – which means “something good for you” – fuses the honeyed aftertaste of Mediterranean fare with international cuisine. Some of the highlights include the tomato salad with hand-picked baby tomatoes from local farm partners in Mykonos, cucumber popsicles, and mizithra cheese tarts, as well as the Saint Galini Kakavia, a traditional dish from Crete with grouper filet, celery root, baby potatoes and extra virgin olive oil sauce.

Guests can also indulge in freshly prepared, wood-fired pizzas at the Pizza Corner or stop by the pool bar for detox smoothies during the day or masterful mixology at night.

At the core of Yi Hotel Mykonos lies a celebration of wellness. Yi Hotel Mykonos offers full-body massages, facial treatments and tailor-made spa treatments encouraged by the hotel’s philosophy: earth, wind, fire and water. Guests can also expect treatments at the Oasis spa including the Mykonian Detox Bliss utilising 24k gold, aloe Vera and calendula extracts to re-energise and improve the skin tissue, as well as The Remedy Massage which allows the skin to soak in coffee and orange essential oils for firming.

Guests at Yi Hotel Mykonos will be able to live the ultimate wellness experience thanks to Greek wellbeing and mindfulness mentor, Angelica Roseclove. She will be spending four weeks at the resort (w/c 12 June, 10 July, 14 August and 11 September) to deliver her “Eudaimonia. Feelings are born in Greece” – an experience for body, mind and soul inspired by the nine muses of Greek mythology. All activities have been especially curated to achieve the “soul’s glory” which is what the nine muses embody, by fuelling individuals with creative inspiration.

“Eudaimonia” is a Greek word that translates to “good spirit” but it is often interpreted as “happiness”. Angelica will lead guests on the “eudainonical” path through the world of ancient Greek culture and art as a spirituality awakening to their destiny.

Curved walls, airy openings and statement furniture can be found throughout the common areas and echoed into the guest rooms, inspired by the Mykonian architectural traditional style. The minimalist furniture offers a neutral palette with woods, straw and terracotta punctuated by accents of colours pulled from nature – such as blue glass drawn from the colours of the sea or pistachio doors and windows similar to the tone of an olive tree. Natural wood shading structures mimic trees to shelter pathways and seating areas by the pool, in addition to serving as the focal point of the property.

Together with the hotel facilities – including a swimming pool, spa and gym; Yi Hotel Mykonos guests have access to its exclusive concierge service, a team of islanders that offer invaluable insights to craft experiences for an unforgettable Mykonian holiday: from recommendations on where to eat out in Mykonos to securing entry to the island’s trendiest club. Guests can also join a Delos and Rinia Island full-day boat trip – where they will be able to explore the inhabited islands, swim in the blue waters of the Aegean Sea and enjoy a tasty picnic on its sandy beaches. Additional activities include quad biking, horseback riding and olive oil tasting.

Mykonos attracts the most popular DJs from around the world – and Yi Hotel Mykonos is offering one-on-one DJ lessons for guests to learn directly from their own resident DJ in the hottest party scene in the world.

Direct flights to Mykonos operate from London, Manchester and Bristol.
