Aeonic Suites and Spa is a unique 5-star boutique adults-only hotel on the island of Mykonos, about 2.5km south of Mykonos Town. That means that it’s far enough away from that busy town to offer plenty of peace and quiet, yet close enough to reach on foot, if you’re in the mood for a 40-minute walk.
But there are plenty of other transportation options, such as local busses and taxis. Your stay at Aeonic Suites begins at the airport, or at the port if you arrive by ferry, where you get a free ride to this small resort in a stylish van with leather tooled bucket seats.
Just 10 minutes away from the airport, Aeonic Suites is at the southern end of Korfos Cove, a windswept body of water which a favorite for kite surfers. The complex’s foundations have been excavated out of the hillside near the sea, and the excavation has been shored up by native stone retaining walls. This interior of this new (2021) hotel, designed by noted Greek studio Stones and Walls, is so elegant in its color schemes and minimalist architectural elements as to resemble a modern art museum, with its strategic placement of curved, abstract sculptures and smooth black or white boulders throughout. Even some of the furnishings resemble sculptures.
The walls behind the reception desk look as if they are part of the living rock of the hillside, and there is a beautiful atrium at the lobby’s center point, with pebble hole skylights in the random shapes of rounded stones, which cast their shapes throughout the walls and floors of the atrium and are reflected in the still water of the central pool. Lots of indirect lights and display cases housing island artefacts add to the feel of an ultra modern museum.
The effect of all this beauty is to give you a sense of calm and appreciation of nature and how human beings can create living spaces which are in harmony with the natural order. There are 40 beautifully appointed suites at Aeonic Suites, and resort amenities include free breakfast, a hot tub, an infinity pool, a spa, a fitness center, sea diving, and Korfos Beach.
It’s no exaggeration to say that guests rave about this place. Comments by guests mention that this is one of the best hotels they’ve ever stayed in, and the best hotel on the island (this last is mentioned by several guests). They also liked the personalized tour of the property on arrival, the rooftop garden spa, the professional attitude and service of the staff, the on-site restaurant, and the value for money. Many guests left comments about the hotel saying that they plan to come again.
Suites are spacious, with open floor plans adding to the sense of space. All suites have a color scheme of understated grey and shades of beige, with liberal use of natural materials such as wood and stone, with dark, wood stained furniture, black lamp stands, and black free-standing bath tubs. They all have private balconies or terraces, most of which afford a nice view of Korfos Bay, some of which have an inland view. Bathrooms have free-standing stone his and her sinks, and rain shower cabin. An interesting feature is the bath tub, placed on a large slab of limestone in the corner or in some other spot in the main room, and not in the bathroom. It’s noteworthy that no suite/room is less than 40m2, while most standard hotel rooms start in the neighbourhood of about half that size.
Amenities include Accessibility features ADSL Internet Connection, air Conditioning, alarm clock, ambient lighting with dimmer, bath amenities, bathrobes and slippers, beach towels, Bluetooth sound system, coffee facilities, fibre optic pool lighting, satellite 50” HD TV, hair dryer, king size bed, floating pool tray service, magnifying mirror, resort beach bag, slippers, soundproof windows, weight scale, writing desk, and much more.
Zoe Junior Suite with Plunge Pool and Partial Sea View
Suites comes with a king size bed, terrazzo flooring, laptop-size safe box drawer, in-room bar setup on request, and many other amenities. Room is decorated with items reminiscent of Cycladic art. Space is roomy, comfortable.
Epic Junior Suite with Jacuzzi and Garden View
Balcony has a bathtub-sized Jacuzzi on its balcony. View from the balcony is of the private pools on the lower floor, the sparse garden area, and is dominated by the series of native stone retaining walls built in serried rows climbing the incline the property is built on. This pleasant, rustic view reminds one of ancient Cycladic construction techniques. King size bed is placed near the balcony doors, which is a plus for fresh air.
Eon Junior Suites
Two categories: Plunge Pool and Garden View, Supreme Pool and Garden View.
The Plunge Pool and Garden View version of the Eon Junior Suite has a walk-in shower and a stand up bath tub near the king size bed. The plunge pool is there off the terrace for a quick, cooling dip on those hot summer days. The retaining walls on the other side of the garden guarantees more privacy.
The Supreme Pool and Garden View version of the Eon Junior Suite has a larger swimming pool off the trellis-shaded terrace. The garden is backed up by retaining walls which helps a lot for privacy.
Chronos Suite with Jacuzzi and Sea View
This suite has the same interesting detail of a free-standing bathtub in the room space itself, instead of in the bathroom, but is set off in a little alcove for a greater measure of privacy. The nice thing about these tub locations is that one can soak in them and instead of staring at the 4 walls of the bathroom, can take in the nice view outside the balcony or terrace. In this case the view is of the Koronos Gulf and its always interesting wind surfing activity. The large Jacuzzi out on the balcony is also very nice, where you can catch a bit of sun whilst relaxing your tired and tensed up muscles.
Two categories: Plunge Pool and Sea View, Supreme Pool and Sea View
These two suites are pretty much identical, with the one crucial difference being the size of its pools. The Supreme Pool is considerably larger than the Plunge Pool. You can do laps in the Supreme Pool, whilst the Plunge Pool is nice for a quick cool off. The views of the sea are the same, however: inspiring and beautiful.
Celestial Suite with Private Pool and Sea View
This large suite has a huge patio and native stone exterior walls, with planters, indirect lighting, and fibre optic lighting in the above ground concrete pool. The view is from enough of a height to include the sea and the bright lights of Mykonos in the northern distance. There’s plenty of comfortable seating both inside and outside. The king size bed has three large shuttered windows which allow the light and the view in when open. The suite is divided into a sleeping and a sitting area.
Premier Garden Front Suite with Supreme Pool
This large ground level suite has a nice, terrazzo-paved, sun-washed patio with pool, overlooking the garden and the hotel’s native stone retaining walls.
Stone Suite with Plunge Pool and Garden View
The interior walls of this large suite are dominated by native limestone with large niches for decorative pottery. The interior wall angles near the sleeping area, describing a sort of semi-circle. The exterior patio area is also dominated by native stone walls with large niches, and the pool is L-shaped. The effect is one of elegant, rustic simplicity.
Apeiron Suite with Private Pool and Sea View
This is the largest suite on offer at Aeonic Suites in which the natural materials of wood and stone are prominently used. The suite has two self-contained bedrooms with king size beds, superbly appointed bathrooms, and a spacious veranda or terrace with a plunge pool.
Food and Drink
The Cove Restaurant is the main dining venue at Aeonic Suits. Its open-air, covered terrace is right at poolside and overlooks the waters of Korfos Cove, so you can figure out pretty easily where the restaurant’s name came from.
It’s a magically beautiful place at night, with the fibre optic lighting of the pool at your side, and the lights of the buildings lining the cove reflected in the waters as the sun goes down and the stars begin to twinkle. It’s a place for lunch and dinner, and serves double duty as a poolside snack bar.
Right next door is the Cove Bar, the hotel’s pool bar, which is an open all-day place where you can find light food such as sandwiches, snacks, and a wide range of beverages, both alcoholic and non. Some prepared snacks have a bit of an Asian flair. In the evenings you’ll be treated to quiet live music to relax you all the more.
The Kyano Bar is Aeonic Suites’ lobby bar and a pleasant spot to unwind after checking in, and to do a bit of people watching. Expert mixologists prepare various signature cocktails and drinks for your pleasure, as well as a variety of caffeinated and soft drinks, as well as various snacks.

In the Area
Mykonos is by any measure the most stimulating of the Aegean islands, what with world figures in the entertainment industries who buzz on in, party hearty for a few days, and then fly off to their next destinations. The island has a reputation for openness and tolerance because of its ancient cosmopolitan past as a critical link on Aegean trade routes which bought people from all over the world to her doorstep. In the modern area Mykonos became a base for archeologists who had uncovered ruins on Delos, the sacred island. Delos was uninhabited, so the closest place to stay was Mykonos. Tourism picked up in the 50’s-60’s when celebrities such as Jackie Kennedy Onassis started to visit. Today the island is packed during the high season, receiving half a million visitors compared to its year-round population of 11,000.
Delos is the closest and by far the most interesting off-island site. Historically, mythologically, and archaeologically, Delos is one of Greece’s most important sites. Birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, Delos was a major cult center, and the goal of pilgrimages for Greeks as far back as 900 BC. Sites on the island include the Terrace of the Lions, the Sacred Lake, the Temple of the Delians, and the house of Dionysos. Only 3km from Mykonos, you could almost swim to Delos.
Mykonos, of course, is famous for its wide-open, somewhat expensive night life. It’s a great place to people watch, and celebrity watch as well, seeing as famous people from all over the globe vacation there every summer. The town itself, however, is well worth exploring for its narrow, twisty streets and classic Cycladic, cube-like, whitewashed architecture with its brightly painted doors. Tradition holds that the narrow network of streets were designed that way to confuse pirates. Walking tours are available.
Little Venice, a district famous for its bars and restaurants, and the much photographed row of colorful buildings set right at the water’s edge, is a great place to watch the sunset.
The Archaeological Museum of Mykonos has artifacts dating as far back to prehistory. Founded in 1905, it’s one of the oldest archaeological museums in Greece.
The windmills of Mykonos are one of the island’s most prominent landmarks, and worth a visit. Dating to the 1500’s, the mills were built to grind grain, but have now become the island’s trademark.
There’s lots of other stuff you can do on Mykonos, from walking the island’s hiking trails, to visiting the colorful Ano Mera village for a calm respite from the noise of the town, to the peace and quiet of the monastery of Paleokastro, to a visit to the unique Mykonos Vioma Organic Farm, an agricultural oasis of calm in the center of the island.
Rizes Folklore Farmstead, towards the central eastern region of the island, is a 5-acre traditional farming complex whose stated purpose is the preservation of ancient agricultural traditions on Mykonos, it features a working traditional home, workshops, livestock, and farming techniques which sustained life on Mykonos for centuries before the tourist boom. There is a restaurant serving traditional Mykonian meals, a cooking class, and bread making demonstration of offer. Horseland features guided horseback riding with rescue horses. Vioma Organic Farm, Rizes Folklore Farmstead, and Horseland all have their own web sites.
