Archipelagos All Suites, near Elia Beach on Mykonos’ southeast coast, about 7km east of Mykonos Town, offers something hard to come by in Greece’s most popular and crowded tourist islands: peace and quiet. If you want to go clubbing, Mykonos Town is just a few minutes away.
But if you want some real down time to quietly enjoy the stark beauty of Mykonos, Elia Bay, and the Aegean Sea, this quiet corner of the island will be perfect for you.
Archipelagos All Suites, a boutique-sized getaway on Mykonos’ east coast, offers a unique concept: it’s comprised, as its title implies, of only suites. It’s a five minute walk from a great beach. A sister hotel to the award-winning Archipelagos Hotel Mykonos, it’s built in a rustic style of native stone with lots of exposed wood, with flagstone flooring, giving the complex of buildings a sturdy, pastoral feel.
Excavated into a hillside, the resort gives each guest a beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding countryside and of the downgrade to Elias Beach, one of the best, and best-known beaches on Mykonos. The suites come in 7 categories, and they all give you the same panorama of the sea, except for the Junior Suite Pool View, which instead looks out on its own pool, and the main pool of the resort. Each of the 20 suites have their own pool or Jacuzzi. Because of the architecture and the steep grade the resort is built on, for safety reasons the lower age limit for guests is 12.
Archipelagos All Suites is a new facility, but it’s already attracting rave reviews for its view, its staff, its service, its food and its spa. It offers you luxury treatment on a decent budget, which is a huge plus on an island as expensive as Mykonos.
The predominate color in the suites is brown, in all shades. Couches are tan, draperies are light brown, lampshades as well, walls are a lighter shade of brown, as are the basket weave dividers on the terraces. Brown echoes the color of the earth, and gives guests a soothing connection to the earth. Furniture is sturdy, as are the fieldstone exterior walls, which are, naturally, brown. Suites are all roomy, comfortable, with lots of privacy.
Amenities include king size beds with Coco Mat mattress, electronic safe, mini bar, pillow menu, free WiFi, 50” satellite TV, Nespresso machine, ceiling fan, direct dial phone and voice mail, in-room dining, towel change and pool towels, and more.
Junior Suite Pool View
Junior Suite Pool View has an open living room area, king size bed, random marble pattern flooring, shower cabin, comfy rattan and upholstered furniture, and a spacious terrace with views of the resort’s pool and of the Aegean.
Junior Suite Sea View with Outdoor Jacuzzi
There’s plenty of room in this suite, plus a nice Jacuzzi on the terrace. For added privacy there is a low stone wall on the outer side of the terrace instead of railings. The combination of a Jacuzzi with the inspiriting views of the Aegean is an experience made in heaven.
Signature Suite Pool View with Private Pool
This pool view suite has its own splash pool, so if you feel the need for a refreshing dip or soak you don’t need to go through the trouble of trekking to the resort’s main pool, or to the sea, unless, of course, you want to.
Signature Suite Sea View with Private Pool
The difference between this and the Signature Suite Pool view lies in what you see from your terrace: the pool is the same, but beyond your private infinity pool, the vista opens up to a magnificent panorama of the beautiful blue Aegean.
Honeymoon Suite Sea View with Private Pool
This open floor plan suite has a king size bed, a shower cabin, and a large terrace furnished with a deck bed, a sun bed, a table and chairs. It’s private, it’s quiet, and it’s a great place to spend a honeymoon.
Maisonette Sea View Suite with Outdoor Jacuzzi
This largest accommodation at Archipelagos All Suites consists of two rooms and is a great choice for small families. A desirable added feature is the Jacuzzi on the terrace, which you can use as you gaze up into the starry night skies, or off into the distance, which is dominated by the sea. One bedroom has a queen size bed, and the living room has a double sofa. There are two bathrooms.
Food and Drink
The Archipelagos Suites Restaurant will take care of all your eating and drinking desires at the resort. The restaurant is conveniently placed at poolside on a terrace in the shade, where you can enjoy the fresh, gentle sea breeze and savour the smell of the sea and the countryside. The al la carte restaurant uses, as much as possible, locally-sourced products; fruits, vegetables, fish and seafood. All of which is combined into what the resort calls “eclectic Greek cuisine,” in which a new, modern twist on traditional Mediterranean-style dishes is offered for your pleasure.
The Cycladic breakfast features loukoumia (Turkish delight) from Syros, the all-natural, crunchy energy bar named pastelli which consists of honey and sesame seed, rizogalo, an all-natural rice pudding, halvas (ground sesame seed and honey or sugar), fresh fruits, cheese and spinach pies, and much more. Jams and jellies are all from local producers and without preservatives.
Sweets include fresh-baked cakes and cookies derived from local home recipes, legendary graviera cheese from Naxos, goat cheese and kasseri from local producers, and locally produced free range eggs.
Spa and Wellness
Archipelagos All Suites Wellness Studio has a complete range of therapeutic spa treatments which will make you think you’re 20 again and the last two decades were a long dream.
It offers a tailor made health and beauty regimen, which will be suggested to you after a consult with one of the therapists. Which, by the way, is a Greek word meaning ‘healer.’ Facials, full body treatments and more are offered based on your goals and needs. There’s a massage room, a Jacuzzi, sauna, and a fitness area.
In the Area
Mykonos is by any measure the most stimulating of the islands of the Aegean, 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 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 at the center of the island.
