San Giorgio Mykonos
P.O. Box 153, Paraga, Mykonos, Greece 84600
The San Giorgio had me at hello. I first spotted photos of it here back in January and fell head over heels in love with its bohemian chic vibe. I pinned it to my “Wanderlust” board on Pinterest, tucking it away for someday. Fast forward to May, when we decided to plan a fall trip to Greece–I already knew exactly where we had to stay in Mykonos! The San Giorgio lived up to the stunning photos on its site, and the staff’s impeccable service made for a perfect stay. I only wish we had a full week to relish the laid-back luxury we enjoyed in our three nights there for a little longer. This place is dreamy, folks. Keep reading for a peek inside the San Giorgio’s doors and notes on my favorite bits and pieces!
In two words, the San Giorgio is luxuriously simple. A crisp white palette, accented by colorful kilim textiles, rustic wood furniture, and rattan hanging chairs. In the bedrooms, netted canopies, tiled mosaic floors and peacock chairs add to the romantic ambiance. The design is in perfect balance to its rocky perch above the aegean blue sea. And despite being just up the cove from Mykonos’ world-famous Paradise Club, which Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel ran for a decade before creating the San Giorgio in 2012, the atmosphere is private, quiet and laid-back. A soulful oasis by day. By night, as a guest you get VIP access to Paradise Club.
Fringed hammocks sway in the breeze around the pool and in a grove of palm trees on the hillside. And the secret jewel below? A secluded dock for afternoon diving into the cold ocean. My only question is when can we go back?
*All photos by me, except the pool sign, which my friend Jason snapped.
