SantAnna, Mykonos: A Luxury Beach Retreat Debuts with Largest Pool in Europe
June 28, 2017
Debuting on June 26, 2017, the multi-experiential beachfront retreat is poised to become one of the most sought-after destinations in the Mediterranean. The SantAnna ethos is based on an unpretentious island attitude organically blending with a chic international sensibility. Despite the convergence of global brands on Mykonos, the island has remained an authentic portal into local lifestyle and culture. Entrepreneur Dimitris Christoforidis, genius visionary behind the acclaimed Nice n Easy Restaurant Group, along with Chef and partner Christos Athanasiadis and a group of influential investors, infuse their first-class approach to hospitality at this more than multi-million dollar project.
SantAnna is situated in the enviable location of Paranga Beach on the southern coast of the island, keeping it well protected from Mykonos’s legendary gusty winds. The over 100,000 square-foot complex will house the largest saltwater swimming pool in Europe at 22,600 square-feet with 222,000 gallons of water, two beachfront restaurants, multiple top-shelf bars, 57,000 square feet, full-service poolside area and 28,000 square-feet of beachside lounges and cabanas, bespoke retail boutiques, customized spa services and a salon, a gym, 4,000 square-feet of subterranean guest facilities including exclusive “VIP Islands” that feature connecting underground private lounge areas for guests to change, relax or enjoy a replenishing spa treatment.
SantAnna was designed by ASPA S.A, Greece’s most celebrated and accomplished architecture firm, and engineered and built by the genius team behind Liberty Construction and Development. The property’s stylish equilibrium of contemporary luxury balanced by a minimalistic approach reflects the intrinsic grace of the natural surrounds. SantAnna also pays homage to its Greek origins, featuring custom-made textiles and indigenous materials such as stone naturally found in the Cycladic Islands. Surrounded by the Aegean Sea, the layout and accommodations take advantage of expansive cerulean blue views accented by a luxurious oversized swimming pool. Intimate lounge areas and cabanas provide privacy and respite while strategically placed design details, creative landscaping and shaded areas add character and dimension to the property.
Given the group’s celebrity DNA for creating organic, bespoke culinary experiences, Chef Christos Athanasiadis designs seasonal food and beverage menus that deliver far beyond the expected Mediterranean fare. In keeping with Nice n Easy’s signature establishments, each menu details locally sourced ingredients, nutritional value and vegan, vegetarian or gluten/dairy free options.
The 300 capacity restaurant serving upscale, artisanal a la carte Greek cuisine takes center stage and features a custom tailored selection of international and Greek wines, champagnes and a full range of specialty house-made elixirs. Enjoy regional and international seafood, including grilled lobster and famous grilled whole fish, as well as savory meat offerings and a wide variety of innovative, locally inspired dishes. The restaurant’s invitingly curved design – ‘kiklos’ translates to ‘round’ in Greek – alludes to the shape of the Cycladic islands while the atmosphere is cozy and luxurious with expansive, awe-inspiring views.
A 150 capacity Sushi and Raw Bar will feature inventive combinations of Asian delicacies highlighting fresh local seafood to be paired with a top-shelf sake list. A specially designed Beach Menu boasts tasty all-day snack plates, made-to-order sandwiches, freshly prepared sushi bento boxes and a juice bar with a wide selection of healthy “super food” options. Three bars holding up to 150 guests will serve an extensive craft cocktail menu with classic aperitifs in an elegant, sea-facing setting.
Music and entertainment are central to the SantAnna experience. Guest may enjoy low-key ambient selections playing throughout the morning and daytime then easing into a more up-tempo atmosphere as the evening warms up. SantAnna will host an all-star lineup of local and international DJs as well as soon-to-be-announced top-tier international music acts. The space is primed to be Mykonos’s next most coveted go-to music destination.
SantAnna’s own bespoke boutique features collections by contemporary Greek designers including Orsalia Parthenisis who is lending her sophisticated minimalism to the design of the uniforms, while showcasing her own widely sough-after line. Greece’s most celebrated milliner, Katerina Karoussos, will have her hat wear collection available and IIias Lalaounis’s iconic handmade jewelry in unique gold designs inspired by ancient and modern references will also be showcased. Valia Gabriel’s
exclusive hand made leather sandals and her collector’s edition beachwear line, will be one of the boutique’s highlights. Other brands to be featured include Sophia Kokosalaki’s line of high-end women’s apparel and jewelry.
American investor and tech start-up guru John Roa will debut his contemporary Mediterranean-meets-California luxury swimwear and lifestyle collection for the first time in Mykonos. His SunLust boutique will be a destination point for gorgeous, one-of-a-kind designer swim and resort wear. Selections from Mykonos’s own Ergon boutique will be available, blending accents of Greek history – referencing the amphora as its symbol – offering artistically interpreted and a refreshingly modern take on lifestyle pieces.
A variety of relaxing and rejuvenating massage and spa treatments are available in specially customized underground cabins, for optimum privacy and decompression. The cabins are located beneath the swimming pool and are available by appointment only.
A full scale Salon, a satellite edition of Mykonos’s highly rated BeautyWorld by Despina, invites clients to enter a journey into an entire world devoted to uniquely personalized hair and beauty treatments, including all the essentials such as blow-outs, manicures/pedicures and more.
Exclusive Amenities & Services:
What sets SantAnna apart from other beach clubs is its host of bespoke concierge services offering island tours, private transportation, helicopter services, private water taxis, golf carts, private security and any other requests guests may desire. Additional amenities include free valet parking, a jetty for small motorboats, a gym with a personal trainer upon request, beach access and facilities for disabled guests, 24-hour security, free Wi-Fi and a dedicated SantAnna Shuttle Bus.
SantAnna, Mykonos, is accessible with daily flights from Athens and charter flights directly from all major European cities; daily ferries and hydrofoils have regular departures from Piraeus and Rafina ports in Athens. A private helicopter charter is a short 40-minute ride from Athens International Airport. Alternatively, a private boat can be booked as Mykonos port is just 94 nautical miles from Piraeus port in Athens. SantAnna is located at Paranga Beach on the southern coast of Mykonos.
Nice-n-Easy Restaurant Group
- Owner Dimitris Christoforidis is one of the country’s most influential visionaries behind the organic farm-to-table movement in Greece. After living in the U.S. for 25 years, he returned to Greece at the onset of the economic crisis, and opened his first
restaurant in the posh Kolonaki neighborhood of Athens, inaugurating his progressive approach to the culinary arts. Chef and partner Christos Athanasiadis boasts an equally accomplished pedigree. With his extensive experience in five-star resorts across Greece and abroad, he has cemented his reputation as a pioneering innovator of upscale, modern Greek cuisine featuring bold, inventive global accents. Together, they have since tripled their business, while offering sustainable, locally sourced cuisine from small farms across the country, often helping to fund and enhance agricultural production. The Nice-n-Easy Restaurant Group now includes four successful restaurants; including Nice-n-Easy Mykonos in Little Venice, the upscale Nesaea serving creative contemporary Greek island cuisine on Agia Anna Beach at Kalafatis and two Nice-n-Easy restaurants in Athens – located in Kolonaki and Kifissia – as well as “Exquisite Catering,” the leading catering service on Mykonos. Their stellar reputation has garnered a loyal following of clientele ranging from Hollywood A-listers to global dignitaries to international influencers and jetsetters.
