Introducing Anandes Hotel, an homage to timeless Greek elegance set to bring intimate luxury back to the island of Mykonos

With panoramic views over Mykonos Town and the Aegean Sea, the boutique property will also launch French Riviera-inspired restaurant La Petite Maison

Perched upon a hill within the heart of the iconic Mykonos Town, celebrated for its charming architecture, vibrant energy and unique views, Anandes Hotel emerges as the latest independent luxury boutique hotel, opening on 16th June 2024. Gracing a high point of Mykonos’ enchanting Old Town (Chora), overlooking its glaring white houses, windmills and the breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea, Anandes Hotel is re-defining the new Cycladic chic style.

Featuring 42 rooms and suites, many equipped with private pools, along with a spa and the highly anticipated arrival of the internationally acclaimed French Riviera-inspired restaurant, La Petite Maison (LPM), at the poolside al-fresco terrace and in-room dining, Anandes Hotel is set to redefine intimate luxury hospitality on the island.

Designed by Studio Bonarchi, the property blends traditional elements with avant-garde design, creating radiant spaces decorated with unique furnishings and sculptural lighting. Upon entering the hotel, guests are welcomed by custom light fixtures from French sculptor and artist, Philippe Antonioz, with the lobby slowly unfolding onto the terrace to reveal the vast ocean view that truly sets Anandes apart. The hotel features custom artworks from artists including Richard Serra and Thomas Houseago, each complementing its sophisticated Cycladic aesthetic.

Architect and Founder of Studio Bonarchi, Vangelis Bonios, says “Studio Bonarchi’s vision for Anandes Hotel celebrates the beauty of Greek light, conceived as the most precious gift for a place that stands out uniquely above Mykonos town. Organic forms dressed in the  luminous white of the Cycladic idiom contrasted with authentic natural materials in dark shades compose spaces in a poetic dialogue with the view of the blue sea.”

The rooms within Anandes are dominated by natural stone, embossed pine wood, linen fabrics and rattan elements, forging a palette that creates a dialogue with the sea views that surround the hotel. With six room categories ranging from the Executive Sea View Suite to the Royal Sea View Suite with Infinity Pool, each room features Bang & Olufsen products, custom bedding, bathrobes, slippers and bathroom amenities by Frederic Malle. Bathrooms feature travertine stone sinks with elegant brass taps, with each element of the rooms meticulously crafted with glimpses of mid-century design – a nod to the jet setters of the past which captivates the fascination of cosmopolitan globetrotters of today. For the first time, hotel guests will also be able to enjoy LPM favourites in the comfort of their room.

Anandes’ breath-taking poolside and al fresco dining space offers unparalleled views over the island and the Aegean Sea that are difficult to find elsewhere in Mykonos Town. The internationally acclaimed French Riviera-inspired restaurant La Petite Maison (LPM) will occupy the impressive open air poolside dining space, with the 125 cover, fully outdoor restaurant marking the launch of the group’s tenth international restaurant and its debut in Mykonos. Designed by interior designer Sagrada founded by David d’Almada, the aesthetics will seamlessly complement the Anandes ethos, paying homage to the enduring charm of Mykonos with references to Greek mythology in the finishing touches throughout. The restaurant will cater to hotel guests during the day and open to the public for dinner, creating a unique oasis before the vibrant Mykonian nightlife commences.

LPM has created a bespoke menu for poolside dining that seamlessly marries LPM’s signature French Riviera flair with Greek influences. Guests of Anandes can delight in starters such as Sea Bass Ceviche with Truffle Ponzu, and Burrata and Tomato Tartine, as well as mains including a Wagyu Sandwich with Focaccia, Rocket Pesto and Sweet Peppers, Cocca Pizza with Grilled Courgette and Feta Cheese, and Grilled Prawns with Pita Bread. For breakfast, guests can enjoy dishes such as Eggs ProvencalFrench Toast with Fresh Berries and Mascarpone Chantilly, as well as Tomato Tart with Feta Cheese and Basil.

Designed for sharing and conviviality, dinner guests can expect a menu that features LPM’s classics such as Warm Prawns with Olive Oil and Lemon JuiceSnails with Garlic Butter and Parsley and Thinly Sliced Octopus with Lemon and Green Chilli, as well as the cult-favourite Vanilla Crème Brûlée for dessert. Complementing the dishes is a sophisticated list of cocktails, including the timeless favourite Tomatini – a must-try when visiting any LPM.

Anandes also offers a peaceful haven offering a wide spectrum of wellness options and a treatment menu featuring Ariadne Athens products. The Spa will feature two bespoke treatment rooms and a 24-hour Gym offering premium TechnoGym equipment, as well as a Hammam and Sauna rooms.

Owner of Anandes Hotel, Karim El Chiaty says, “Mykonos has always held a special place in our hearts, having frequented the island for over 30 years, so we are thrilled to be bringing this special oasis to the island. Anandes is a love letter to vintage Mykonos – an homage to the timeless Greek elegance and charm of Mykonos that made the island famous to begin with. We are fortunate to be situated on a vantage point of the town that offers incredible, unobstructed sunset views across the island and the Aegean sea while still being in close proximity to the vibrant energy of Mykonos Town – a rarity on the island that will surely captivate visitors.”

LPM CEO Nicolas Budzynski says, “We are thrilled with this new outpost in one of the most exclusive locations in the world. The sunset views of Mykonos will be unparalleled and we are excited for our diners to experience this truly special location. The new Anandes Hotel will add a new, sophisticated offering to the Island. We have wanted to come to Mykonos for some while, but were waiting for the right location in order to provide our guests with the best possible experience and take full advantage of the summer season. With this launch and partnership we feel we have achieved that.”
