The magic of Mykonos, with its striking white Cycladic architecture against the brilliant blue sky and sea, instantly evokes a holiday spirit. Perched on a hill, Myconian Kyma offers a sanctuary of laid-back luxury with lush gardens, sweeping views, and private terraces—some equipped with pools or Jacuzzis, complemented by art-infused interiors. The hotel’s Satory Thalasso spa features five heated thalassotherapy pools, each providing unique seawater therapies, alongside treatments using the exclusive skincare lines of Augustine Bader and Ligne St. Barth. Completing the enchanting experience is the restaurant, which delights guests with exquisite Mediterranean cuisine crafted from the freshest seasonal produce sourced directly from family-owned farms.

The Myconian Avaton, a sister property to Kyma, is located above Mykonos’ longest stretch of sand at Elia Beach, with breathtaking views of the vast blue Aegean Sea. The hotel features dramatic architectural elements such as double-volume spaces, panoramic decks, and private balconies that offer unrivaled vistas, while ensuring absolute privacy. Its design, a harmonious blend of bright colours and a mix of modern and vintage styles embodies a unique luxury that captures the essence of the island. Enhancing the restorative allure of the Aegean, the hotel’s Sanctuary Spa provides an array of heated thalassotherapy pools and rejuvenating treatments, such as a chill-out body massage with warm shells or the frangipani salt glow scrub. For a serene escape from daily stress, the Avaton pool terrace, a stunning spot that seems to float above the landscape, offers one of the island’s finest views of the Aegean.

A refreshing take on the Greek seaside resort, Istoria is 12-suite hideaway with stripped down contemporary aesthetics away from the tourist spots on Santorini’s southeast coast. In the hotel’s bright sculptural suites, impressive arched openings guide guests towards introspective terraces with private Jacuzzis and/or pools. Here, one can enjoy moments of profound privacy and breathtaking views. An expansive pool, decorated with stunning green artisan tiles and enclosed by protective walls and loungers, boasts a distinctive sunken pool bar. The serene Elios Spa provides holistic treatments using solely organic, locally sourced materials. Skilled yoga instructors also deliver transformative sessions for total physical and emotional rejuvenation. Alternatively, take off on cliff-top walks to volcanic vistas for some of the Mediterranean’s finest hikes.


Inhabit Queen’s Garden in central London is a wellness escape from the city within the city. Every aspect of Inhabit Queen’s Gardens is meticulously crafted to promote equanimity and wellbeing. From the tranquil color palettes and natural materials to the nourishing, plant-focused cuisine and alcohol-free selections at the Kitchen restaurant, each element is designed for health and harmony. The bedrooms are sanctuaries for sleep, featuring soothing colors, bespoke aromatherapy, and a meditative atmosphere that skillfully blends Scandinavian, British, and Eastern influences. Peaceful communal spaces include a silent library filled with inspiring literature, and a subterranean wellness spa, Inhale at Inhabit, which offers Gaia treatments. Guests are invited to partake in daily yoga, Pilates, or guided meditation sessions.
