Belvedere – Greece

The white buildings of this Mykonos hotel complex resemble a traditional Cycladic village. Inside, though, they’re unexpectedly urbane

The architects of the Rockwell Group drew inspiration from contemporary yacht design in their renovation in 2009

The upscale nature of the Belvedere is evident elsewhere too. In the staff uniforms by British designer Neil Barrett, for example, or the fact that the signature cocktails are exclusive to the hotel bar, a popular meeting place for the island’s trendy young things

Despite the hip vibe, there’s plenty of traditional Aegean magic to enjoy too. The interiors are bathed in soft sunlight, the courtyard bougainvillea exudes a seductive scent, and the suites’ terraces afford fantastic views of the sunset – surely the real experience at this very special hotel

Situated above Mykonos Chora, 2 km/1.2 miles to the northwest of the island’s airport

Rooms from $175, suites from $610, breakfast included

35 rooms and 8 suites, some with private terraces

The hotel’s special sunset service: invite friends over to your suite and celebrate sundown with divine drinks and great music – the perfect way to warm up for an evening on the town
