Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel
Standing between windmills and sand, blue crystal waters and the narrow, cobblestoned streets of Mykonos, the restored Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel is everything you wouldn’t expect from a classic Greek hotel. Its 52 rooms revisit the sixties, with retro furniture playing off stark whitewashed buildings that glow in the afternoon sun. The glamorous free-form pool—with its four-poster “beds,” curtained in white fabric—steals some thunder from the island’s famed beaches, most of which are within a 10-minute drive. Romantics should hitch a ride to deserted Kapari Beach to watch the moon rise over the sacred island of Delos. The concierge will take care of all the details, even arranging for a speedboat to bring you back.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
