Boheme artfully combines the relaxed vibe of a luxury hotel, with a hip boutique aesthetic -- all within reach of Mykonos' vibrant nightlife scene, while still being a comfortable distance down the road from the center of it all. With only 20 suites, all of which have views of the sea, the property maintains an atmosphere of relaxation. In fact, everything has views of the sea from this elegant hillside, including the outdoor pool, spa, and open-air restaurant and bar. It stands out for its sophisticated bohemian-chic decor and gorgeous setting; the talented staff make delicious lemonade from the lemon trees growing on the grounds. This is one of the top luxury options near Mykonos Town, along with Kouros Hotel & Suites and the pricier Cavo Tagoo.
The 2014-built hotel's whitewashed buildings rise out of the hillside paying homage to traditional Cycladic architecture with splendorous open-air spaces. Lemon trees dominate the rocky garden grounds with a poured concrete terrace providing a chic spot under can-roofed pavilions to take in coveted views of the Aegean. Chic basket-style chairs and a wraparound bench surrounds the breezy lounge, with gentle white cushions to recline on. Glass displays filled with branded items and works from Greek designers decorate the area, which spills into a small lobby with a rustic wooden reception desk. This is the sort of property that most travelers will enjoy, regardless of whether they arrive with family or friends, though the tranquility is perhaps best suited to couples looking to get away from it all during the day before heading out at night.
On the edge of Mykonos Town, walking distance to nightlife
The hotel is situated with its back to a busy hillside road on the edge of Mykonos Town, with views of the island below and the sea beyond. It's about 15 minutes' walking distance into town for the island's most vibrant nightlife and high-end shopping, along with attractions like the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos. Guests should note that the walk back to the hotel is uphill. Megali Ammos (aka Big Sand beach) is about a 12-minute walk, while Psarou and Platys Gialos beaches are both about a 10-minute drive to the south. Mykonos Island National Airport is five minutes away by car.
The hotel's 20 suites feel like the Mykonos version of modern urban loft living. Poured concrete floors and white-painted rough-wood-beam ceilings, combined with funky lighting fixtures, give suites a warehouse makeover vibe with a traditionally Cycladic palette of white, gray, and blue. Each air-conditioned suite has a sitting area with a plush couch, a small desk, and a furnished balcony (not as private as they could be, with connecting partition walls). Some suites have larger private balconies with outdoor hot tubs. All have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, safes, and minibars. The bathrooms are minimalist concrete affairs, with walk-in showers; some have bathtubs. Hairdryers, robes, and slippers are provided.
Outdoor pool, spa, alfresco dining and bar, free breakfast, smartphone for guests
Picturesque views of the Aegean can be enjoyed from the outdoor pool and its sundeck. The spa, too, has open-air treatment rooms with tranquility inducing views of the sea. For its locally sourced, seasonal Mediterranean cuisine the alfresco restaurant has its own covered terrace, and Bilo Bar serves cocktails and wine beside the pool area. Free a la carte breakfast can be served in-room (including on the balconies). The hotel produces its own lemonade (free to guests) and citrus oil from the garden which can be purchased in bottles. There's an Internet corner with a computer. Guests also have free use of local smartphones to stay in touch with reception.
