As 2019 is drawing to a close we’d like to take a moment to look back, take stock and count our blessings. Indeed it was another bountiful year at the Semeli rooms & suites in Mykonos town, as we were happy to host so many of you, our dear friends, old and new, alike!
Enjoy the island of the winds by staying at the Semeli in Chora, the only 5* establishment among Mykonos City HotelsNovember 27, 2019
Labyrinth cobblestone streets lined up with bougainvillea clad, sugar-cube houses, built next or on top of each other. Red and blue-roofed little churches dotting the rugged, dramatic landscape. Rows of thatched old windmills towering above the waves, glistening under the bright Aegean sun…
Everybody knows -and loves- Mykonos for its misbehaving, daintily clad celebrities and uber glamorous, marathon parties. Yet at the end of the peak season, mega-yachts, jet-setters and superstar DJs alike, take off to chase the sun in other parts of the planet. As temperatures cool, everything starts winding down too on the island of the winds. Yet very few are aware of the fact that Mykonos is much more than the surplus value that the A-listers -and their shenanigans– generate with their annual summer visits.
Glamorous merrymakers have been flocking here since the ’50s for a taste of the high life in the sunshine. But history demonstrates that the island of the winds has loved a good party since antiquity. It is only logical: Intensely worshipped by the locals, Dionysus, the god of joy and wine has imbued Mykonos with his distinctly exuberant, high spirits since time immemorial. This zestful cultural legacy finds its most exemplary manifestation in early autumn. Dedicated to the island’s ancient, mirthful patron Saint, September in Mykonos elevates fun into unprecedented heights. Opt to stay at the Semeli Mykonos luxury hotel to get the most out of your visit.
You’ve heard the rumors. Oh yes, with semi-clad celebrities and next door, bronzed gods and goddesses sprawling out in its beaches or superstar DJ’s parading in its clubs 24/7, Mykonos is the Mediterranean’s party central. Yet aside from its blue and gold seashores or bacchanalian merrymakers, the island of the winds has much more to offer to early birds and night owls, alike: A charming, quaint ancient town with whitewashed, cube-shaped buildings, iconic windmills and maze-like alleys; contemporary architectural masterpieces; picture pretty sunsets; Unesco heritage sites; glamorous shops to rival those of any metropolis in the world and a foodies scene to dazzle any self-respecting culinary jet setter.
With some 1.4 million passengers crossing its airport gates every year, Mykonos is the Mediterranean’s hottest, hippest holiday diva, rivaling the likes of Ibiza, St Barths and Saint Tropez in terms of glamour, beauty and fun.
