The idea of the San Giorgio Mykonos is to bring like-minded people together in a laid-back atmosphere. San Giorgio Mykonos is designed to make true interaction possible and yet giving those who are looking for privacy and relaxation from the daily routine the time to relax and recreate in a design oriented atmosphere.
Fifteen years ago, two small-town Germans met on the shores of Ibiza. After years of traveling and sharing ideas, Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel took over Paradise Club in 2004, transforming it into one of the world’s most popular nightclubs. By the end of the decade, San Giorgio was born, tailored to those enraptured with the euphoric energy of Grecian paradise.
The result was so exquisite that San Giorgio not only became an official Design Hotels™ member; it was embraced for the summer of 2012 as the company’s second temporal hospitality project. In 2015 it was joined by Scorpios, a modern-day agora and beachside cultural venue just a short, scenic stroll from the hotel.
“We’ve made San Giorgio this place where you walk around and you feel like part of the family,” said Hertel. “Which is actually the same thing we were always trying to do with the club, where you step in and you feel at home.”
