Saint John Hotel Villas and Spa on the greek island of Mykonos is perfectly positioned on a 20,000 square meter stretch of pristine coastline in Agios Ioannis. This is one of the best five-star hotels on Mykonos, and it comes with its own private magnificent sandy beach and spectacular ocean views.
As well as being known for its non-stop party atmosphere, Mykonos, sometimes referred to as the ‘Ibiza of Greece,’ is also one of the most popular and glamorous of the Greek isles with beautiful beaches and up to 300 days of sunshine a year. Steeped in mythology and history, this island features the pretty and unique white-washed Mykonos windmills, built by the Venetians in the 16th century, which are dotted all over the hills and cliff tops and concentrated in the main town. This island is perfect for a lively sunshine escape, with great food, friendly people, and a plenitude of beaches to choose from.
Why We Love This Hotel
Rooms, villas, reception bars, and restaurants are located on different levels up a hillside that cascades down to the beach. A highlight is the amazing glass lifts, which elevate you upwards and offer fabulous views of the bay.
Mykonos is one of the most beautiful and cosmopolitan islands in the world, attracting thousands of visitors each year. The location of the Saint John Hotel Villas and Spa is one of the best on the island, with the views over to the islands of Delos and Rineia. Most of the resort, including the bar area, enjoys breathtaking sunsets.
Best Time To Visit
The warm, mild Mediterranean climate means that Mykonos is nice to visit any time of the year and the location of this windy island means that it has warm waters all year round. The months of May, June, and September offer a more comfortable heat whilst the high season months of July and August will see hotter temperatures and more visitors to the island’s shores.
How To Get There
Mykonos is one of the most popular and glamorous Greek isles and can be reached in under 4 hours flying from London. The hotel is just a short drive from the airport, so you can be relaxing by the stunning pool in a blink of an eye.
Style & Character
Saint John Hotel Villas and Spa is a large hotel, by Mykonos standards, but the grounds are extensive, so you never feel that the resort is too busy. The hotel’s design is based around Mykonos Island whitewashed cubist houses that cascade down the hillside onto the private and pristine 200-meter beach with its crystal clear waters.
Service & Facilities
The infinity pool is saltwater, huge, and is surrounded by thick mattressed sun loungers. There is also a separate children’s pool on a lower level. Other facilities include an assortment of gourmet restaurants and lively bars, state of the art conference facilities, a tennis court, table tennis, and billiards. You can also enjoy some good snorkeling around the rocks down on the private beach.
There are 136 ultra-luxurious and romantic rooms within the hotel, as well as 9 exclusive and private suites. Bigger groups might want to choose one of 3 magnificent villas with their own private swimming pools.
The luxury accommodation is both spacious and stylish with superbly comfortable beds. Each room is designed to make guests feel completely at home, luxuriated, and pampered. A twice daily maid service and high-quality toiletries finish off the luxury experience.
We love the sea view deluxe room so that you can enjoy the fabulous sunset shining directly into your room.
Food & Drink
The breakfast buffet has many choices, including fresh pancakes and eggs cooked to order. All are delicious. The main restaurant is amazing with fantastic views. Additional restaurants and pool bars offer plenty of choices.
If you feel you need a burst of sunshine and relaxation that’s just a matter of hours away from London, then a few days at this stylish resort in the Greek Isles is just what the doctor ordered.
