Nissaki Boutique Hotel - Mykonos, Greece

Overlooking the powdery sands and sparkling blue waves of Mykonos’ Psarou Beach, Nissaki Boutique Hotel allures with its superb designer interiors and enchanting pool bar and restaurant, where refreshing drinks and gourmet Mediterranean dishes are served in an idyllic Greek setting. Combining modern aesthetics and state-of-the-art amenities with elements of Mykonos’ traditional architecture, the hotel’s rooms and suites are exquisitely decorated in soft natural colors that seem to bring inside all the glittery whites, vibrant blues and bright yellows of the island’s landscape.
