Scorpios – the beach, restaurant and cultural hub offshoot of San Giorgio Mykonos Hotel – is now welcoming on a sun-drenched southern tip of Mykonos Island. Located a short, scenic stroll from San Giorgio Mykonos, guests of the hotel and visitors alike can pass languid days and evenings ensconced by a feast for the senses.
The haven encompasses a sandy sunset beach, restaurant, and live event space, along with ample open-air terraces spilling into the Cycladic coastline. Top international DJ talent sets the tone every day from 2 p.m., offering a heady mix to match the mood.
Central to the property is the gently weather-worn house with classic white washed and natural stone walls. Simultaneously evoking 1960s Greek glamour and contemporary modernism, the structure consists of a main floor with lower level and is surrounded by open-air terraces. At the heart of it all, the welcoming living room, restaurant and bar evoke slowed simplicity. Low-slung sofas, rope hammocks and abundant wickerwork harmoniously unite under a thatched ceiling.
The rustic-chic restaurant at the center of the house comfortably seats 200, spilling onto an outside terrace overlooking the sea. The ideal place to gather under a shady canopy, long, leisurely meals can stretch into the afternoon or evening. Relying heavily on fresh seasonal produce from the fertile land, the top-level culinary talent lets the quality of the ingredients shine – blending local Greek flavors with Asian influences. The result is a confident cuisine that strips away the unessential and focuses on purity, authenticity, and the reinterpretation of quintessential seaside recipes.
With the day’s events centered around sunset rituals, musical programming begins at 2 p.m. and guides guests through the ceremony of sundown, until 2 a.m. Scorpios’ music concept merges deep ethnic sounds, ambient melodies, world folklore, Detroit house and Berlin sounds. The culturally diverse schedule of regular residencies and impromptu performances ensures guests are symphonically satiated.
The property is situated in the south of Mykonos, on a peninsula flanked by Kavos and Paraga Beach, 5 km from the center of Mykonos Town and 3.5 km from the airport. Public transport from Mykonos Town to Paraga is every 30 minutes.
