The Report

"Mykkoonosssssss!"... That's the melodic way we chant the name of this mystical and magical Mediterranean island where the sun shines up to 300 days a year. If you are a world wanderer who is enticed with visions of hanging out in hammocks, sun worshiping, socializing and surfing the salty sea, then San Giorgio, Mykonos is your new home away from home. This newly renovated gem emanates the homey and welcoming vibe of staying the night at your besties (if your BFF had an insanely cool oceanfront Grecian paradise party pad, that is.)

This hotel is all about free-spirited comfort with a boho buzzin' twist that we are calling Bohemian Aegean. Our reporters are going gaga for the party panache factor, perfectly fuzed with 60's laid-back luxury. This beauty is also budget friendly with room rates starting at 150 EUR. Additionally, San Giorgio, Mykonos has collaborated with the Design Hotels group, and as they say "what turned out to be a happy experiment is here to stay!" This collaboration has created an atmosphere and vibe that caters to gypsetters and jetsetters alike.

History Lesson. San Giorgio started back in the 90's, the decade of grunge rock and Beverly Hills 90210, when a local fisherman staked claim on Paradise beach to build this seaside hotel. Fast forward to 2012, and the neighboring club owners of Paradise Club, took over the 33-room property. Long-time buddies of Design Hotels, Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel together with Markos Daktilidis, owner of Paradise Beach, joined forces with the brand to create this Mediterranean masterpiece that has become San Giorgio.  Located a mere 300 meters from Paradise Club (ranked amongst the top five in Europe), San Giorgio is nestled between the beautiful beaches of Paradise and Paranga.

HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: San Giorgio Hotel is a mere 10 minutes from the bustling center of town. The airport on Mykonos is serviced by domestic flights from Athens and direct flights from the UK. You and your guests may also opt to island hop and ferry over to the island on a car ferry or high speed catamaran.
