MYKONOS, GREECE - Designed by the famous Greek architect Aris Kostantinides and recently refurbished befitting the retro sixties theme by the renowned interior designer Angelos Angelopoulos, Mykonos Theoxenia is now a Louis Group hotel, a member of the trendy Design Hotels of the World group. To celebrate, Louis Group is pleased to re-launch Mykonos Theoxenia – the favorite Mykonos hotel of iconic First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that was also preferred by the likes of Grace Kelly and other iconic stars.
Today, the exquisite property is attracting the new generation of jet-setters, featuring a unique ambience of the sixties and Pop Art-decor that transports visitors through the magic mirror in time with the added benefit of today’s class of pampering perfected for even the most discerning guests.
The sixties marked an entire revolution in fashion, music, art and design with a sense of the exotic. This era of style was represented worldwide by the elegance of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who became an Ambassador of 60s fashion and an icon whose worth continues through the decades up until today. The Cycladic island of Mykonos and the unmistakably matriarch of sophisticated style, Jackie O’, go firmly hand-in-hand. Her frequent trips alongside Aristotle Onassis whom she married in 1968, branding her the name Jackie O’, the super wealthy and the silver screen heroes, helped mark the era of travel and the golden age of glamour that put Mykonos firmly on the style map
Restored to its former glory and with its distinct stone and whitewashed corners that established it as a landmark next to the famous windmills of Mykonos, the Theoxenia reintroduces the 60s glad to its guests. Its 38 superb standard and deluxe rooms feature an impressive design with colors and furnishings that resemble the era Jackie and Onassis enjoyed the hotel’s unique hospitality with their colorful entourage. 12 Junior, one and two-bedroom suites designed to combine spacious luxury and pampering, provide what the hotel’s name translates to from Greek: Heavenly hospitality. A large, free form swimming pool with a rejuvenating Jacuzzi is the main feature in the lush landscaped gardens. The ‘bhealthy club’ offers massage and spa treatments and a fully equipped gym. Named after the winds the island is known for, the ‘Breeze In’ and ‘Breeze Out’ bars provide mouthwatering cocktails, freshly squeezed juices and anything from caviar to salads, sandwiches and desserts. ‘The plate’, the hotel’s restaurant provides the most breathtaking view on the island with balconies opening on the water and a whitewashed chapel right below whose belfry hides the melting colors of sunset as the sumptuous Greek cuisine is served on your table.
True to its history and 60s style, the Mykonos Theoxenia still sets the pace for design hospitality in Mykonos and 45 years later, revives the golden age of jetsetters Jackie and Grace by the endless Aegean blue. Petros, the island’s pink pelican still welcomes travellers much like his great-great grandson, seen on the attached photo, welcomed Jackie O’.
