RELAIS & CHATEAUX LIFESTYLE LUXURY WITH VIEWS OF MYKONOS TOWN
A bright new star in the constellation of Myconian Collection luxury hotels, Korali Relais & Châteaux enjoys the best of both worlds. Perched on the hills above the historic harbour, it is a coveted haven minutes away from the cafés of Little Venice, boutiques, tavernas and famously alluring nightlife of Mykonos Town. The elegance of simple lines, espoused in both architectural structure and detailing, lends added impact to the vibrant touches of signature yellow and touches of red and orange that will get your first three chakras humming. Its contemporary spaces come alive with the best of international design that lends an unmistakeable air of sophistication to complement the gracious hospitality, haute cuisine and exceptional views which celebrate the ethos of excellence and savoir faire that defines a Relais & Châteaux retreat.
Luxurious rooms and suites are intimate spheres of infinite comfort, opening onto shaded balconies sporting oversized pools or Jacuzzis — the perfect counterpoint to the buzz and cinemascope brilliance of the sun-baked pool deck under sail, where afternoons fade lazily into sunset extravaganzas and starry nights at Kitrino Bar. Yet the most distinctive feature of Korali is perhaps Baos, its incomparable fine dining restaurant which floats seamlessly over the iconic panorama. As your eye is drawn out as far as sight allows, over the white profile of Mykonos town, beyond Tinos, to the very edge of the deep blue sea, the ozone-rich lofty views will sharpen your appetite: haute cuisine will acquire a double meaning. Indulgence is the only imperative here.
Summer living is easy at the enchanting Korali, basking in glorious sunshine and caressed by a gentle sea breeze as you take in magical views of nearby Mykonos town and the vast Aegean.
Our guest services can assist with anything that you may desire. Even our days linger on as long as you wish, though they have been known to fly by with siestas on a shaded lounger at the pool deck. The seductions of light snacks and cool refreshments from the bar will tide you over into the late afternoon, before you give in to the temptation of a relaxing treatment at our Satory spa, in preparation for a Myconian night on the town.
Yet that is not all. You may want to visit the two neighbouring luxury hotels from our family portfolio that share our unique history. Ask any of our staff to give you a tour of the Naia Luxury Suites and the Kyma Design Hotel. The same goes for the Ambassador, which presides over the beach of Platys Gialos with the beach belles of Psarou and Scorpios on each arm, and where you will find superb yoga and Pilates instruction. Not to mention our sister hotels in Elia – the Utopia Relais & Châteaux, the Avaton Design Hotel, the Royal and Imperial Leading Hotels of the World and the Villa Collection – which all await you with an exciting variety of restaurants and spa ( both require reservation ) treatments to be explored at your leisure. Combining our facilities and expertise, we have become world-renowned for hosting some of the most spectacular weddings, corporate events or retreats here. As a guest of Korali, you quite literally have the world of the Myconian Collection at your feet.
THE POOL DECK
Dream away the day at our sensational pool that seems to merge with the blue horizon. Enjoy the idyllic laid-back luxury of a deck designed for comfort, with stylish loungers and deep sofas, humming to the vibe of Kitrino, our vibrant bar that flows with cool sounds and cold beverages throughout the day. There is no good time to leave, which is why guests linger as long as their other commitments allow, to take in the last rays and the first stars.
Executive chef Panagiotis Tsoukatos is passionate about the Relais & Châteaux philosophy that marries the art of haute cuisine to the farm-to-table sourcing of the finest seasonal and local ingredients and guides everything that comes of his kitchen.
‘The emphasis is on interpreting Greek cuisine with a contemporary twist. We promote the flavours of our homeland. The menu specialises in seafood, and every lunch or dinner is a celebration of the senses’.
His cooking preserves pure flavours. ‘I want you to taste everything that went into the dish. I do not believe in the kind of complexity that overpowers what you are eating. I will take a piece of lamb or fish, cook it to perfection and then perhaps glaze it a little; and I will garnish it with fresh aromatic herbs, but the original flavours will remain distinct.’ When Panagiotis isn’t cooking, he travels widely in search of new gastronomic experiences.
Our meticulous sourcing of the freshest seasonal ingredients and organic produce, as well as local catch and farm-reared poultry and meat, is a matter of conviction. As a Myconian family, cuisine and service remain at the very heart of our sense of hospitality, and our long-standing ties to local farmers and fishermen ensures a supply of the freshest seasonal ingredients and organic produce, some of which is also produced on our family land. We aim uncompromisingly high, because as food connoisseurs, we know all about the importance of placing the highest quality ingredients at our chefs’ disposal.
As a guest of the Myconian Collection, you are also at liberty to choose from any of the group’s finest restaurants. Just ask your concierge to make a reservation at any of our resorts and you will be given a warm family welcome!
