Krontira of the Greece-based SMK Interiors, the resort’s renovation will
feature a contemporary yet timeless design complementing the majestic
views over the Mediterranean Sea. The redesigned guest accommodations,
public spaces and restaurants of Santa Marina reflects Starwood’s larger
strategy to invest in the restoration of its most celebrated Luxury
Collection hotels and resorts in Europe.

“Mykonos remains one of the world’s most mesmerizing destinations, and
we are thrilled to unveil the redesign of Santa Marina, perfectly poised
to cater to a new generation of luxury travellers,” said Paul James,
Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection, St. Regis and W Hotels

market globally is a clear indication that the country’s rich culture,
distinctive heritage and indigenous treasures make it a ‘must’ for the
most discerning travellers.”

Five minutes from Mykonos town, Santa Marina sits on a private and
revitalised beach, offering captivating panoramic views of the Aegean
Sea, Ornos Bay and nearby islands. The resort has 100 guest rooms and
suites, including some with a private pool, all featuring a private
balcony and picturesque sea views. Exclusive villas sit atop the
hillside amid lush gardens where discerning travellers may enjoy butler

Krontira’s elegant interpretation of the resort blends the cosmopolitan
style of Mykonos with the island’s welcoming warmth, complete with
state-of-the-art technology and luxury amenities. The resort’s newly
designed rooms and suites will feature natural materials such as teak
wood and linen fabrics alongside mesmerising panoramic sea views.

The complete redesign of the public spaces of Santa Marina reflects a
chic natural decor and muted tones that are inspired by its coastal
environment and complements the crisp white interiors of the resort.
Indigenous Cycladic design accents blend seamlessly throughout the
resort, from the lobby to the exclusive private villas.

the lifestyle authority in Mykonos where guests can enjoy fine dining
with Mediterranean-fusion cuisine inspired by local seafood and Japanese
influences whilst being spoilt by gorgeous sea views from the
restaurant’s stunning honeyed wood terrace.

The transformation of this captivating resort complements the extensive
guest experiences that have made Santa Marina a popular summer escape in
Mykonos. The resorts features Lotus Spa, which provides guests
