Overlooking the Aegean Sea from a private peninsula bordered by sparkling sand and lush gardens is Mykonos’ most exclusive resort. Since becoming the island’s first luxury resort over 20 years ago, Santa Marina Resort & Villas has maintained top status by offering supreme services including: premier restaurants and bars, a first-class spa, private helicopter and jet charters, water sports, and more.
A member of the Cycladic island group, the 88-square-kilometer isle of Mykonos is named after the grandson of Greek god Apollo. In the last 20 years, Mykonos has become an international destination for tourists and celebrities who come to enjoy the sunny climate, incomparable beaches, and vibrant nightlife; the island’s cerulean waters, and storybook Cycladic architecture enchant upon arrival.
In the island’s main town of Mykonos, narrow, twisting pebble stone streets lead to small bridges that traverse houses, balconies, stairways, and porches, all carved out of emblematic white stone. Native shops offer traditional knitted cotton clothing, leatherwork, exquisite wrought jewelry, and artwork while designer boutiques and souvenir shops present alternative shopping options. Interspersed are small but remarkable churches, authentic tavernas, and bars.
