Cali Mykonos is now open! As one of this year’s most anticipated luxury hotel openings, the boutique resort in Kalafatis is unlike anything else on the island. Nestled between mountains,, the resort is perched above its private beach—a rarity in Mykonos—with unobstructed views of the endless Aegean Sea.
For over six years, the Mourkakos family has thoughtfully created this property. Having spent many summers in Mykonos, they were determined to put their stamp on the island. At the helm is Kyriakos Mourkakos, who has worked tirelessly to make this dream a reality. Named after his mother, Cali Mykonos honours Greece’s past and is set to become one of the country’s most exclusive hotels.
Here is what you’ll find at Cali Mykonos:
- 40 Luxury Suites & Villas: Quietly elegant accommodations ranging from deluxe suites to the three-bedroom Villa Calliope (or five-bedroom Cali Villa to come in phase two!) blends calm and natural interiors with breathtaking private outdoor space. Most suite and villa exteriors open to spacious and completely secluded marble terraces, seawater pools, and uninterrupted Aegean Sea views.
- Local Cuisine by Greece’s First Michelin-Starred Chef: Overseeing the culinary experience is Chef Lefteris Lazarou, the most prominent chef in Greece and the first to receive a Michelin star. As his first and only restaurant on Mykonos, the menu will reflect local Mediterranean cuisine and change daily based catch that day. A sushi bar nestled alongside the 130-meter seawater infinity pool offers light fare for lunch, and an exceptional cocktail bar is prime for sunset drinks.
- Experiences that Cater to Every Whim: From the resort’s fleet of boats and yachts to take on private charters to neighbouring islands, exploring Greece by air in a helicopter, to immersing yourself in the local destination through tastings, tours, and more, Cali Mykonos’ expert concierge is able to make anything happen for guests. In partnership with the renowned Athens-based fitness studio, Athlesis, personal and group pilates, yoga, and training sessions poolside and in the state-of-the-art gym. In-room spa treatments are also available for various facials, massages, and scrubs.
- Sustainably-Focused: Cali Mykonos was constructed with as much material from the local environment as possible, with most of the stone coming from the initial excavation. Cali also features a self-sustainable water system, which avoids straining the island’s local water supply.
