Highs & Lows

  • Direct, stunning view of famed nightclub Cavo Paradiso.

  • A special, secret cave-stage that floats on the Aegean Sea.

  • Hammocks, hammocks and more hammocks.

  • Free WiFi which rivals any I've experienced on any island.

  • Welcoming staff that act like your friends (and probably are by the time you leave).

  • Free shuttles and VIP entrance to Paradise Club (you can thank the owners Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel).

  • All rooms come with a balcony or outdoor space.

  • Rooms can be a bit small and cave like; request the second floor or splurge on an upgrade.

  • The hotel sits on a rocky cliff, so expect views but not a beach (except for the make-shift one).

  • The simple aesthetic means bring your own toiletries. Rooms are equipped with the basics... (but who needs more in Mykonos!?)
