With 25 suites and two villas, the hotel will open in Summer 2020 to introduce a luxury experience that balances fun and privacy with genuine insider knowledge of off-the-beaten-path sites. The seasoned trio behind the project – who also established Athens hotspots Sea Spice, Pere and Ubu – are all local to the island, and the resort will share a modern expression of Mykonian traditions. Translating to “invite” or “calling,” Kalesma welcomes guests to become a part of the island’s community.
- What’s New: Set on a hilltop above Ornos Bay, Kalesma’s accommodations are spread across five acres and set against a lush hillside blanketed with 20,000 plants. All rooms offer unobstructed lookouts, as well as a full-sized private pool. Classic Mykonian warmth and hospitality will be on full display with experiences like shared guest-only dinners; sunset celebrations at the restaurant; a dedicated concierge who can direct guests to the best beaches depending upon the day’s winds; and a personal shopper to help the fashion-conscious discover local shops.
- Wow: Pere Ubu, the restaurant at the property’s peak, shines with its 360-degree panoramic perspectives of the sea, offering guests the rare opportunity to catch both the sunrise and sunset from the same spot. With its menu of Greek dishes, the restaurant embodies Kalesma’s community ethos with nightly sunset celebrations, evening DJ entertainment and weekly culinary events like intimate dinners exclusively for Kalesma’s guests.
