Cali Mykonos – Mykonos {Booking now here} Seclusion and understated luxury characterize Cali Mykonos, which Travel + Leisure describes as “a welcome antidote to the island’s all-night party reputation.”

“The property’s 40 suites and villas are scattered like sugar cubes along a secluded cliff, on the quieter southeast side of the island. Chef Lefteris Lazarou, whose restaurant Varoulko Seaside received Greece’s first Michelin star in 2002, oversees Cali’s menu of fresh Mediterranean produce,” reports Travel + Leisure.

According to the magazine, instead of deafening DJ tunes and cramped sunbeds, most guests opt for the cliff-edge infinity pool or private sandy cove for cool dips. {Booking now here}

Cosme, a Luxury Collection Resort – Paros   This beachfront boutique hotel, with 40 suites, sets new standards for Paros, where luxury is usually limited to private villas, according to Travel + Leisure. {Booking now here}

“Designed to look like an extension of the nearby port of Naoussa, its whitewashed, all-round buildings are constructed of local stone and Parian marble and mimic the traditional villages that dot the island,” the report says. {Booking now here}

The decor, adds T+L, combines the best elements of modern and ancient Greece, with an abstract mural dominating the sunlit lobby, along with hand-embroidered cushions and antiques sourced from across the Mediterranean. The hotel also features an outdoor concept shop, Anthologist, with handmade brass art and stage costumes.

A number of suites feature private plunge pools that are positioned to appear to frame the Aegean Sea Also, a 40-foot catamaran is at the disposal of hotel guests for a quick trip to the island of Antiparos. {Booking now here}

Xenodocheio Milos – Athens {Booking now here} According to the publication, it’s no surprise that food is the main attraction at Xenodocheio Milos, which opened in the Greek capital in early 2022.

This is the first hotel of Kostas Spiliadis, founder of the Estiatorio Milos restaurant group, which has long been considered one of the leading names in high Mediterranean gastronomy. {Booking now here}

“Spiliadis bills his new property as the first luxury gastronomic hotel in Greece, and the emphasis on food is clear from the moment one enters the elegant 1880 building, just down from Syntagma Square,” notes T+L .

T+L’s 100 Best Hotels list is selected each year by a team of the magazine’s editors after visiting and evaluating hundreds of new and renovated hotels around the world. {Booking now here}
