As more and more hotels sprout up along the shores of Mykonos, Anax Resort & Spa at Agios Ioannis mixes classic all-white Aegean architecture with an environmental design ethos. Melding modern design and organic materials, Anax Resort is home to 45-rooms and private villas facing a lively beach and distant views of Delos. From its hilltop location, sea views from all public areas and two large salt-water pools are accented in geometric shaped and whimsical architectural details that flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. The all-day restaurant by chef Vennitis Manolakis mixes Mediterranean specialties with poolside bar and lobby lounge. Better for those on their third or fourth trip to Mykonos in lieu of their first, the property is a five-minute drive from Mykonos town that's made even further by the island's scarce taxis and scooter culture.
Found woods, stone, and marble accent the neutral, modernist style of Athens interior designer Adonis Martinos. Rooms are contained within low-flung sea-facing villas that all feature private and stylish living areas with integrated bathrooms. All guest rooms include in-room espresso maker, bath amenities by Greek-brand Korres and access to the on-site Anasa spa with hammam, fitness center and boutique featuring Greek designers.
