Nestled into the hillside above Elia Bay, the 5-star Villa Collection is a uniquely luxurious resort concept. The essence of Myconian beauty and lifestyle runs like a blue thread through a constellation of exceptionally spacious suites and rooms, while superb villas offer the discreet yet unbounded opulence of a private house on Mykonos, complemented by personalised 5-star service around the clock. Leaning into the mountain, the terraced villas have uninterrupted views of the Aegean, culminating in a 360-degree panorama on the vast entertainment deck with its cool bar, epicurean restaurant and saltwater infinity pool. Magnificent interiors offset the local vernacular with contemporary design, investing sophistication and comfort in every detail. Service of the highest standard affords a sense of effortless luxury and ease, as you move from the unparalleled comforts of your room to poolside pleasures, the world-class Thalasso spa, or simply venture down to the fine sand beach where parasols stand to attention over private loungers.
