Inspiring Travel Company | 28 Mar, 2019

Mykonos, with its iconic whitewashed buildings and picturesque sunsets, is without a doubt one of the most breathtaking locations in our portfolio. There’s no shortage of fantastic places to stay on the island either, so we thought we’d showcase one such delightful hideaway perfect for your next short-haul escape.

Enjoying peaceful seclusion at the island’s southern tip, and yet just ten minutes from the airport and all the delights of Mykonos town, the luxurious Santa Marina resort offers the best of both worlds – a remote location for tranquillity plus easy access to the island’s main highlights.

Santa Marina resort offers all the character and splendour of a traditional Mykonian village combined with plenty of luxe touches – a serene sanctuary perfect for relaxation and restoration.

Wining and Dining

As well as the many eateries in nearby Mykonos town, Santa Marina guests have access to a fantastic selection of dining venues – from Mediterranean fare and a great family-friendly menu at Colonial Pool Restaurant & Bar to the laidback atmosphere of Oasis Pool & Lounge. Don’t miss Buddha-Bar Beach, the first in Mykonos, which offers incredible fusion cuisine, world-class DJs by night and a range of signature cocktails.

Life’s a Beach

Santa Marina is the only resort in Mykonos with its own sandy beach, so you’ll enjoy plenty of privacy on afternoons soaking up the sun and paddling in the waves. Guests also have access to the resort’s complimentary cabanas dotted along the wooden jetty, and can order snacks and drinks directly to your sunbathing spot from the extensive Buddha-Bar menu.

Make a Splash

As well as dipping your toes in Aegean Sea, you’ll also be able to head to your choice of pool for a cooling dip. Those travelling with youngsters in tow will enjoy the proximity of the Colonial Pool and whirlpool to the fantastic playground, while for something a little more serene we recommend the Oasis Pool – an adult-only enclave with a quarter of partially-immersed cabanas for lounging in style.

Holistic Relaxation

The indulgent spa here boasts five treatment rooms, including a couple’s suite, and an enticing menu with a range of holistic therapy options, including massages, exfoliation treatments and ancient cleansing rituals to help you fully unwind and relax. Finish your experience with a detox in the sauna – bliss!

Sublime Suites

Santa Marina offers a host of top accommodation options, though for an extra touch of luxury our Travel Specialists highly recommend the Deluxe Sea View Suites. Enjoy breathtaking views out over the Aegean Sea from the private balcony, separate living areas and bedrooms, and stylish décor inspired by the famous whitewashed walls of Mykonos.
