Description

Set on a private beach on the island of Mykonos in Greece, is Santa Marina, A Luxury Collection Resort. With both hotel rooms, suites and villas, this secluded resort has the look and feel of a traditional Greek village, ideal for families or couples.

Santa Marina, A Luxury Collection resort sits on a hillside with panoramic views over Ornos bay and the crystal clear Aegean. Located just 3km from Mykonos town, the architecture is in the typical Cycladic style with whitewashed buildings and colorful wooden doors, blending in with its natural Mediterranean surroundings. It has its own private beach with beautiful clear waters, where you'll find loungers stretched out on the quay to the lighthouse, promising peace and seclusion. Combine this with exceptionally attentive service, outstanding facilities, water sports, and a wealth of activities on the island, the resort is a perfect retreat.

The resort underwent a 3 year renovation program, which completed in early 2014. The newly designed rooms and suites have a luxury contemporary décor and with such a wide choice of accommodation, there is something for everyone. A total of 114 rooms and suites, 9 of which have their own private pool, and 12 two to six bedroom villas, with every accommodation having spectacular sea views. There is a choice of two restaurants, both serving very high quality food. The Asian inspired Buddha-Bar Beach, has a reputation for serving inventive cuisine, with Asian influences. The Colonial Pool Restaurant and Bar is open all day and is perfect for al fresco dining whilst lounging by the pool. A children’s menu is available, which is full of healthy choices using local ingredients. In room dining can also be organized with a delicious menu to choose from. And for a romantic treat, a private dinner on the beach can be laid on especially for you. Or you could just enjoy the sunset with a cocktail on the veranda of the Lobby Bar.

The resort is very family oriented with good children’s facilities. A children’s club operates daily during the summer with a varied activity program suitable for all ages. The Spa has an extensive range of treatments and therapies and the Health Club is well-appointed with the latest fitness equipment. The resort has a floodlit tennis court where the pro team are happy to arrange lessons for both adults and children. There are two swimming pools, including a beautiful infinity pool and a saltwater children's pool.

Mykonos is a beautiful Greek destination offering the visitor a lot for such a small island. It belongs to the Cyclades group of islands in the Aegean Sea with rugged scenery and turquoise waters, all surrounded by sandy beaches. Visitors can take their pick from busy ones, or tiny secluded ones. There’s a huge choice of watersports that one can enjoy in the island, including windsurfing, water-skiing, scuba diving (with lots of underwater caves and shipwrecks), horse riding and tennis. The resort operates a speed boat service which guests can take for the day to visit nearby islands and beaches.

Santa Marina was for me the most luxurious hotel on Mykonos. Its got everything you would look for in a top luxury resort and is the most suitable option for families looking for a luxurious beach break. It has the only private beaches on the island due to its enviable location on a small peninsula close to the bay of Ornos which has a great selection of local restaurants and beach clubs for those looking to escape the hotel on foot. They will also shuttle you into Mykonos Town in 15 minutes if you want to explore further. I loved the new adults only pool which really helped the feel of the hotel as it separates the grown ups wanting to chill and the families wanting to play and have fun. They have a Buddha Bar restaurant on the beach which offers the best sushi on the island and pulls in plenty of outside guests. Super hip but also very busy and not conducive to relaxed long lunches that you will find at some of the other spots on the island. Some rooms have their own private pools which is a great touch and I was seriously impressed by the quality of their new villas, just ensure youre at down before checking the price

The painstaking renovation that has been carried out over the last 2 years has most definitely been worth it - the hotel looks absolutely amazing! The facilities are fantastic - big pool, tennis court, amazing spa and private beach as well as several restaurants and bars - you really won't want for anything. It is a lively resort with lots going on by way f entertainment but there are areas where you can get some peace and quiet.

It's a very short walk to Ornos Beach, one of the most talked about on Mykonos, which is one of the less party-beach beaches you can find and excellent for families. You'll also find lots of great restaurants.
