From the outside, San Giorgio looks like one of Greece’s ubiquitous whitewashed homes. Inside, traditional Greek textiles and locally made furniture adorn the 33 unfussy rooms. Most feature rough-hewn wooden dressers, large circular jute rugs, and beds canopied with mosquito netting. Some have terraces with views of the Aegean Sea. Guests can relax during the day in cocoonlike hanging swings near the pool or take a 10-minute walk to the popular beaches Paradise and Paranga. In the evenings, it’s not uncommon for DJs such as Bob Sinclar or David Guetta to make guest appearances in the hotel’s open-air lounge.
Thirty-four rooms of whitewashed simplicity: this is the San Giorgio Hotel in a nutshell. Situated right next to Paradise beach, in the Greek party island of Mykonos, the property is part of the Design Hotels collection. The idea behind the decor is Bohemian Luxury: refined but rustic local furniture, natural fabrics, incredible sea views from each room and poolside hammocks make the guests feel as if they’re visiting a friend’s striking home. The hotel interior was designed by Berlin-based team, Lambs&Lions, and completed in 2012.
