Found: Heaven on earth at Scorpios
If you've already made plans for your next vacation, be prepared to reconsider them. Scorpios, Design Hotels' upcoming haven in Mykonos, is set to redefine all notions of a classic beach holiday.
The property, which opens this month, is sprawled across 6,000 square metres of picture-perfect terrain. With two beaches, a restaurant, a lounge, and an abundance of open-air terraces, you don't have to go very far to find a picturesque spot. All you really need is sunblock, your phone (Instagram opportunities abound), and all the reading you never had time to catch up on.
Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel, the duo that conceptualised the gorgeous San Giorgio Mykonos Hotel, were roped in to conceptualise the property's design. Not surprisingly, it follows that Scorpios' design exemplifies both luxury and minimalism in one breath.
While the property appears to be wonderfully tucked away, it is only five kilometres from the centre of Mykonos Town and three kilometres from the airport. Design Hotels is set to release more information on Scorpios closer to its opening later this month – but this little teaser is more than enough for us to book in for our next vacation.
