There are plenty of bouji ho­tels on Mykonos that are so gener­i­cally glam­orous they could be any­where. This isn’t one of them. The Mykonos

Blu serves up the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of lo­cal and lux­ury, and has a laid-back, waftin­garound-in-a-white-cot­tonkaf­tan boho vibe, which feels au­then­tic on the is­land. A path­way down the rock face leads to Psarou beach, where the re­laxed and friendly hotel staff will bring you cold beers and de­li­cious broad bean hum­mus with pitta bread. It’s right next to Nam­mos, one of Mykonos’s hottest beach-party spots, so you can walk or swim to the ac­tion and es­cape back to the sanc­tu­ary of Blu when the Euro-pop gets too much. The rooms are all Gre­cian white and blue – sim­ple, and de­li­ciously cool. Splash out on a pri­vate villa with your own small pool and hot tub that over­looks the bay so you can watch the su­per-yachts park up. We loved re­turn­ing to Mykonos Blu af­ter a hot night ex­plor­ing the old town for an ill-ad­vised ouzo night­cap while swing­ing in a ham­mock un­der the stars. mykonos­ Dou­bles from £178, B&B.
