SET HIGH ON A HILLTOP above Mykonos town, Ostraco Suites dazzles with hard-to-beat views of the Aegean Sea and a chilled-out island vibe. Stylish simplicity is the keynote.
A contemporary take on traditional white-on-white Mykonian architecture, this intimate boutique hotel charms with pergolas, flowering courtyards, outdoor daybeds, two wedding chapels and a gorgeous pool.
Away from it all yet close to all the town’s shops and nightlife, family owned Ostraco Suites seems made for laidback indulgence. A cluster of 24 whitewashed suites, it’s a place made for idle days of tanning and lounging around the pool or leisurely wanders around Mykonos. The atmosphere is carefree cosmopolitan.
All individually decorated, Ostraco suites mix a traditional Greek island feel with up-to-the-minute amenities. Uncluttered white walls contrast with vivid burnt orange cushions and sofas, while hand made wrought iron beds and rainfall showers are made for indulgence. There’s a kitchenette for rustling up light bites, and some suites come with a terrace and freestanding bathtub. Sleek modern furnishings blend with the occasional antique flourish.
Standard rooms are compact, so it’s well worth splashing out on one of the bigger suites. Superior suites come with their own heated outdoor jacuzzi for starlit soaks, and a terrace with great views perfect for that early evening sundowner.
Day or evening, guests hang out at the Ostraco Suites pool bar for cocktails, coolers and mezze style eats. There’s a barbecue area overlooking the sea (where there’s partying on some nights) and a terrace overlooking the pool for enjoying generous al fresco breakfasts.
With two little Greek chapels on site for those planning to do the big deed, indulgent daybeds scattered around the grounds and a poolside made for sheer indolence, Ostraco Suites is something of a honeymoon hotspot.
The hotel’s hospitable and knowledgeable team are happy to go the extra mile for their guests, winning plenty of plaudits. And you’re just a ten minute stroll from Mykonos Town’s shops, bars and night time buzz.
