PROS & THINGS I LIKE
  • Aeonic Suites & Spa is likely one of the greatest resorts in Mykonos, Greece’s most well-known vacation vacation spot. Providing dream seashores, azure seawaters, spectacular landscapes, and picturesque whitewashed villages, Mykonos is called an island that by no means sleeps, an infinite grownup playground, and one of many world’s most wanted homosexual vacationer locations. The island has righteously gained a spot among the many greatest get together locations of Europe, attracting famend DJs and fashionistas. Since Brigitte Bardot, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Grace Kelly visited within the Nineteen Sixties, Mykonos additionally turned a popular vacation spot for the wealthy and well-known.
  • Overlooking the crystalline blue waters of the Aegean Sea, Aeonic Suites & Spa enjoys a tranquil waterfront location on the western finish of Korfos Seashore. Right here, away from the bustling seaside golf equipment and raunchy get together scenes of Mykonos, you’ll uncover a quieter and extra genuine facet of the well-known Greek island. The situation of the property could be very handy as it’s inside strolling distance of the gorgeous seaside and vigorous tavernas of Ornos, and it’s solely a ten min drive to Mykonos city (15 euros by taxi). The airport and port are each a 15 min drive away and the lodge supplies complimentary switch upon arrival and departure.
  • Aeonic Suites & Spa is a creation of the Greek inside design studio Stones and Partitions whose founding philosophy is that “design influences individuals’s cultures and has a constructive impression on their lives” (which is precisely what the lodge goals to do). The studio describes the theme of the lodge as clear, fashionable areas with softer wabi-sabi moments. Capturing the essence of Mykonos, the lodge’s timeless and impartial inside incorporates a sober and understated coloration palette with some darkish picket accents. The lodge’s light-flooded and organic-shaped areas are crammed with a way of calmness and expanse, guaranteeing a soothing but attention-grabbing and thrilling keep.
  • Aeonic Suites & Spa’s major constructing consists of pleasant widespread areas, together with a welcome space, reception, lounge, boutique and bar in addition to the vast majority of the rooms. The core component of the lodge’s structure is the dramatic atrium on the heart of the constructing, which creates an atmospheric recreation of sunshine and shadow. Skylight beaming by way of pebble holes within the atrium’s ceiling finally ends up reflecting on a water floor on the bottom flooring and leaves its imprint on the foyer partitions. The atrium additionally homes the wellness heart on its prime flooring and is linked to the principle restaurant & pool space by a small bridge (extra on that under).
  • Aeonic Suites & Spa options 34 spacious rooms, which are available 10 classes. Every room enjoys its personal out of doors house both with both a personal pool or a Jacuzzi relying on the ground degree. Throughout my keep, I used to be upgraded to an Everlasting Suite with Supreme Pool which was positioned in the principle constructing. The suite featured an open-plan bed room with king dimension mattress, sitting space, attractive bathtub, luxurious rest room with walk-in bathe, and a personal terrace with pool and beautiful sea views. Pure supplies like marble & wooden, eclectic items of darkish wooden furnishings & artwork, and a palette of muted greys and beiges created an opulent really feel all through.
  • Subsequent to the principle constructing and reached by way of a picturesque bridge is one other pavilion which homes the lodge’s eating space, known as Cove Restaurant & Bar. With a spacious veranda and huge sliding home windows overlooking the Aegean Sea, Cove Restaurant units the scene for company to embark on a journey of style. Every morning, a fantastically introduced breakfast unfold (7:30 am to 11 am) provides contemporary fruits, pastries, cereals, Greek delicacies and extra, whereas company also can select eggs, pancakes and waffles from a menu. At night time, Cove Restaurant transforms into a complicated nice eating venue, providing one in every of Mykonos’ greatest culinary experiences.
  • In entrance of Cove Restaurant is the lodge’s lovely infinity pool which is rarely busy since most company want to lounge by their very own pool or to spend the day at one in every of Mykonos’ well-known seaside golf equipment. Crammed with salt water, the massive pool is surrounded by dozens of snug solar beds and umbrellas. Pool service is accessible, with snacks, refreshing cocktails and lightweight bites served all through the day. The pool decks provides nice views of the bay and seaside of Korfos, in addition to spectacle of kite surfers having enjoyable within the waters of the cove. The pool space is considerably sheltered from the sturdy winds that usually bather this a part of the island (extra on that under).
  • The lodge’s prime flooring homes an intimate wellness heart, providing quite a lot of remedies together with full physique massages, manicure, pedicure and hair providers. The spa’s decor strikes away from the communal areas’ understated class by way of a special palette of wood-like views, mixing in with the pure surroundings. There are 3 remedy rooms (2 {couples} suites & 1 single room), with one room that includes its personal non-public moist space with Jacuzzi and sauna. The spa can be house to a small however nicely outfitted gymnasium.
  • Aeonic Suites & Spa is positioned subsequent to Mykonos’ Korfos Seashore, which is a pole of attraction for wind- and kite surfers because of the sturdy winds that blow over the bay. When the ocean is calm, the crystalline inexperienced waters and exquisite views in the direction of Mykonons City create an idyllic setting. Korfos shouldn’t be the very best seaside although for swimming and enjoyable (there are not any loungers on the seaside), however that shouldn’t be an issue as there’s a attractive seaside only a 10 min stroll from the lodge: Ornos. Oknown as a family-friendly seaside and providing calm waters, Ornos can be one in every of Mykonos’ trendiest, hottest and crowded seashores.

CONS & THINGS TO KNOW
  • What you have to be conscious of and put together for as you design your dream Mykonos trip are the seasonal Meltemi winds. These northern summer season winds are very sturdy and dry, giving low humidity and tempering the new summer season temperatures. These winds typically happen in July and August, although they’ll have an early onset in mid-June and will final to mid-September. All the island of Mykonos will expertise sturdy winds (apart from some sheltered bays) when the Meltemi is blowing. The windy situations are sometimes at their strongest in Korfos Bay the place the lodge is positioned, additionally explaining the cove’s status as a kite surfers paradise. To cope with its location, the lodge has positioned some wind screens on the pool deck, which tends to be much less windy in comparison with the non-public swimming pools of the lodge suites.
  • Though a superb boutique resort, Aeonic Suites & Spa is not a seaside resort (nor does it faux to be one). The property is positioned subsequent to Korfos Seashore (with nice views), however the seaside itself is not going to be interesting to most company as a result of it’s fairly soiled (a whole lot of waste from the ocean washes ashore) and really windy (there are not any sunbeds on the seaside). Nonetheless, that shouldn’t put you off as there are solely only a few resorts in Mykonos that provide direct seaside entry and most vacationers on the island want to go to Mykonos’ well-known seaside golf equipment in the course of the day (which might be simply reached by taxi). Additionally, proper across the nook from the lodge (a ten min stroll) is Ornos Seashore, a beautiful and wind-protected stretch of sand with azure blue waters, a number of seaside golf equipment, loads of eating places, and an incredible vibe.
  • Proper in entrance of the lodge, alongside the ocean, is a small highway (with low site visitors) which is lined by some energy strains and rusty pylons. The highway itself shouldn’t be seen from the rooms and the pool deck (because the lodge is constructed on the next degree) however the energy strains and pylons are clearly seen. It’s nothing too dangerous although (the cables don’t block the view) but it surely could be an eyesore to some company nonetheless. I hope that within the close to future the resort would possibly negotiate a cope with Greek authorities to reroute the ability strains across the property (or conceal them beneath the bottom), just like what different resorts within the Cyclades have executed previously (e.g. Canaves Epitome on the Greek island of Santorini).
  • Positioned on a hill in Mykonos’ western half, Aeonic Suites & Spa faces east. Which means that early risers will be capable of capable of watch the dawn, however the sundown shouldn’t be seen from the property. The lodge can be within the shade round 90 minutes previous to the sundown, however that ought to inspire you to go away the stunning resort grounds and take a taxi (or stroll) to Mykonos City, which provides an outstanding view of the island’s well-known sundown.
  • Though the younger workers at Aeonic Suites & Spa are super-friendly, fanatic, and wanting to please, service shouldn’t be flawless (but). Some minor service hiccups occurred throughout my keep, which might be on account of the truth that the lodge has solely been open since June 2021. For instance, within the restaurant, I used to be solely served my drinks & bread midway my (exceptionally good) multi-course dinner; and once I ordered room service one night time, the soiled plates weren’t eliminated throughout room cleansing the following day. Additionally, I used to be provided a special quote for a taxi to Mykonos City on a number of events, which I discovered somewhat odd (and the workers appear puzzled as nicely). I count on that service will solely get higher over time because the place appears to be run and managed very nicely.
  • Among the pool suites don’t include sea views however overlook a stunning courtyard backyard surrounded by a country wall. If you would like an open view, be sure to guide the correct room (the web site of Aeonic Suites & Spa clearly states which rooms provide a sea views and which don’t).

BEST TIME TO VISIT

The most effective time to go to Mykonos are the autumn months of September and October: the climate remains to be nice, the vacationer crowds have left, the ocean temperature is at its warmest, and the lodge charges are inside cheap vary.
