The Grace Mykonos, looking southwest over the Aegean to Rínia islet from Ágios Stéfanos cove, has made a name for itself with its meticulously equipped rooms, attentive service and excellent food. It's a flagship member of the growing international Grace luxury hotel chain.
They overuse the word rather gracelessly—Grace Suite, Grace Boutique Spa, State of Grace Restaurant & Bar, With Good Grace Gym—but it really is the right one to describe the cool serenity of this 32-room hotel just above Agios Stefanos Beach, about five minutes by taxi from Mykonos Town. The decor is minimalist, in every shade of pale, highlighted by a single oversized photo, backlit and printed on canvas of some reposeful natural element. Some rooms have private terraces with hot tubs from which to enjoy the Aegean views. As might be guessed, this is not a hotel for the see-and-be-seen crowd but one that allows you to escape from Mykonos’s nightly madness and relax, mostly by the pool (where breakfast is served, at whatever hour suits). The restaurant’s bar is a perfect place to enjoy an evening cocktail, especially if the ever-thoughtful staff have advised you of the exact moment of sunset.
