San Giorgio Hotel, Mykonos, Greece | Lambs&Lions

San Giorgio Hotel in Mykonos, one of the top tourist destinations in Greece, is set against the dramatic coastline of the island, being a blend of rustic and modern Mediterranean flavors. 

A member of Design Hotels, the hotel interior was redesigned by Berlin-based team Lambs&Lions with creative director Michael Schickinger and designer Annabell Kutucu, completed in 2012.

The hotel’s philosophy is based on bohemian luxury, offered with style, comfort and simplicity. 
The design recalls ’60s bohemian chic, with abundant natural materials, handmade fabrics, and vintage pieces. Whitewashed walls are combined with unique, handpicked items, every piece having its spirit of beauty and clarity and displaying the genuine power of craftsmanship in it.

Description from San Giorgio Hotel: 

True – Authentic – Simple – Today’s travellers expect more than just the standardised comfort and convenience, they are looking for a true and authentic experience. People are not seeking for luxury in a traditional definition anymore. The word luxury is overused and irrelevant since talk of luxury has become cheap. People have had enough of pretension unreasonable demands. Today sophisticated travellers are looking for the truth of their individual needs, which is relaxing from their daily life and just being themselves.

The idea of the San Giorgio Hotel is to bring like-minded people together in a laid-back atmosphere. The San Giorgio Hotel 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.

The story of the San Giorgio Hotel project truly begins some 15 years ago, in the mid-90s, when Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel met on the shores of Ibiza. Thomas Heyne was a former real estate student from Augsburg who had turned down a lucrative career in construction to run a nightclub in Ulm, Germany. Fellow Bavarian Mario Hertel had opened up a cafĂ© in Bayreuth when he was 18 and eventually built up his own mini hospitality empire – a clutch of restaurants, bars, cafes, and clubs that were all a bit racy for their starchy surroundings.

In 2012, after nearly a decade running Mykonos’ world-famous Paradise Club, Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel have teamed up with Design Hotels™ to create the San Giorgio Hotel, a singular destination for likeminded free spirits.
