Built like a traditional Myconian village Santa Marina is a mixture of 101 rooms, suites and 13 private villas all with sea views. Classic white Cycladic buildings are interwoven with sparkling pools and lush gardens. Beach-chic interiors open onto balconies or terraces that take in the Aegean views. Interiors of bleached woods and neutral colour palette ensure that the blue of the skies shine through.
The exclusive sandy beach is home to the world’s first-ever Buddha-Bar Beach serving excellent Greek and Mediterranean fusion cuisine and cocktails. Relax under one of the cabanas before taking a dip in the crystal-clear shallow waters. There are two infinity-edge pools to choose from - the lounge-styled adults-only Oasis Pool and family pool. Dining at Santa Marina is a true delight, the pool restaurant serves all day dining, Buddha-Bar Beach showcases Asian cuisine and catch of the day at its seafront location. The Oasis Pool & Lounge is relaxed poolside chic just for adults with cocktails and light-bites all day. Social House Mykonos opening in 2021 is Jason Atherton’s first foray onto Mykonos, serving sharing plates, fresh seafood and grilled meats with colourful salads. Santa Marina Beach Bar is open all day for that quick ice-cream or cocktail. The Ginkgo Spa with its five treatment rooms, couple’s suite and sauna offers the only traditional Hammam on Mykonos.
