If ever a Greek island holiday destination lived up to its name, the De.light Boutique Hotel, at Ayios Yiannis, Mykonos, is sure to fulfil any traveller’s longing for a combination of authenticity and luxury.
What’s more, those looking for romance on a holiday to Mykonos will note that the hotel, maintaining traditional charm with its contemporary comforts, overlooks the beach where the movie Shirley Valentine was filmed.
The five-star De.light is built into a hillside in the village, with wonderful views over the Aegean Sea, with its glorious sunsets, and the sacred island of Delos, and, with a minimum guest age of 13, aims to create an ‘elegant and cosy’ atmosphere.
Rooms and suites, sleeping up to three people, have air conditioning, a bathroom with shower or bathtub, toiletries, hairdryer, mini bar, flat screen satellite TV, CD/DVD player, direct dial telephone, wifi, bathrobes and slippers, and a veranda with a sea view. Some suites have an outdoor Jacuzzi or private pool. An allergy-free room can also be requested.
The pool restaurant features breakfast including fresh-baked bread, homemade pastries and marmalades, and a variety of Greek and international dishes during lunch and dinner hours, while the a la carte Authentic Restaurant offers romantic, candlelit dinners on an open-air veranda with a panoramic sea view. The menus feature a good selection of local Mykonian produce.
The glorious swimming pool also has views over the sea, and terraces with sunbeds and umbrellas.
A theme of luxury is continued in the spa, which provides soothing and rejuvenating reflexology, facials, manicures and pedicures, and massages – which can also be enjoyed in the guest’s own suite – including healing, relaxing, anti-stress and oil and herbal remedies. Hairstyling is also available.
