Nobody needs more reasons to escape to Greece. But we’ll gladly take another excuse to sip ouzo at a taverna while the sun sets all syrupy over whitewashed buildings and very, very blue seas.
One of Europe’s most anticipated hotel openings takes place this summer on the Greek party island of Mykonos when Cali Mykonos opens its doors in July. Overlooking a secluded Aegean beach on the island’s eastern end, the property will have just 40 suites and villas with up to five bedrooms—each equipped with its own private pool and sprawling terrace to make the most of (what else?) spending part of your summer on a storied Greek isle.
Built from stones unearthed during the hotel’s initial excavation and incorporating Cycladic architecture into the natural features of the landscape, Cali Mykonos promises to deliver a sense of place alongside the resort’s positively outsized seawater infinity pool that stretches more than 350 feet long and gazes out over the sea.
In addition to the hotel’s private beach, other amenities include a fleet of electric vehicles on hand to take guests to the party (or elsewhere around the island), island-hopping yacht trips arranged in a jiff by the concierge, a Mediterranean restaurant showcasing locally sourced and seasonal ingredients (plus ouzo), and even an onsite pilates studio.
