Elevated far above the sparkling blue of the Aegean, the Panoptis Escape crowns a hilltop above the lively stretch of Elia Beach. Exuding a sense of serenity and exclusivity from the minute you arrive, here its best to simply let go and fully embrace the hotel’s philosophy, pure relaxation.
Never far from a playful sea breeze and mesmerising views over the sea, contemporary architecture, minimalist styling and an earthy palette accentuate the maxim, ‘less is more’, and help create the laidback tranquillity of the space. The warm, personal and discreet service only adds to this aura.
While the main building is surrounded by a lagoon-like saltwater pool, each of the 21 opulent villas boast a private infinity pool or jacuzzi. Within each, the space is airy, orientated towards sea views and sunsets and full of textures and neutral tones - the perfect retreat to leave the worries of the world behind and embrace peace.
While relaxation is top of the agenda, there is still plenty to experience here; pick a spot on the sun-drenched sands of Elia Beach, horse ride through some of Mykonos’ beautiful countryside, cruise the coastline in a private yacht or, if you don’t want to travel too far, seek out the elements of the island at the spa. Here, you can bask in treatments using olive oil, sea salt and volcanic mud before lazing in a poolside cabana as you float gently back from Elysium.
