Mykonos Theoxenia has reopened after an extensive renovation, Jackie O and Brigitte Bardot’s old stomping ground. The new hotel captures classic Greek simplicity and sophistication. It is located in the most sought-after location on the island, Kato Mili. The extensive renovation presents top to bottom changes, with a completely new look, ushering a welcome era of minimalism in Mykonos. The hotel captures classic Greek simplicity and sophistication, in a notion referred to locally as ‘Greeknessence’.
The property has undergone extensive refurbishment, inside and out, since October 2021. With the help of VOIS architects, the hotel has revived its interiors and exteriors to bring mythic design into the present day. The hotel lobby has been completely transformed, and the hotel can now host double the occupancy than its previous capacity.
Embedded within a culturally protected domain, the key focus was maintaining the traditional Cycladic building techniques used when the building was first built in 1960. The hotel exterior is formed of the same stone that constitutes the existing sea walls. The hotel look has been stripped back to its original style from the 1960s, when it was built by architect Aris Konstantinidis, with added touches for contemporary comfort.
