Walking past grey stone borders filled with succulent plants and white pebbles having just driven up a fairly steep hill, you get the feeling this hotel is going to be something special. Breezing through the small stone lobby of the Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge you chance upon a huge open-air lounge with oversize white sofas and deep cushions everywhere. The views are stunning as is the infinity pool which appears to merge with the turquoise waters of the bay below. Gazing around this chic minimalist haven you imbibe the romantic ambiance and absorb the scene around the pool with its golden sun-worshippers moulded into the sun loungers, too comfortable to have noticed your arrival. A long bar stocked with spirits from all corners of the globe is located at one end, next to it a modern display kitchen where the Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge's culinary artists hold court. The casual intimate restaurant tucked away behind the lounge is set against the grey-ochre granite of the hillside, visible behind glass panels, the whole covered by a large pergola providing shade and some protection from the humidity and breeze at night. Stopping to look at the menu you're reminded of a renowned international chef, famed for his innovative approach to gastronomy.
The Bill & Coo suites are arranged in two low rise buildings either side of the pool. The white rendered walls and light sage shutters lend a typical Mykonian style. Shady pergolas, white painted beams and glimpses of private infinity pools complete the image. There is a huge choice of rooms for a small hotel, each one more impressive than the last. The style is convivial and light, a fresh take on minimalism with ethnic influences in the brushed oak furniture and fittings. You return to the restaurant with your partner for your interest has been ignited. Glancing over the menu you decide you have to taste everything so you order the tasting menu and wait expectantly. The sun is setting right in front of you, throwing rays of crimson, magenta and venetian red high into the lingering clouds. Your order suddenly arrives in style, six individual courses, served simultaneously by two affable waiters. The service is flawless, the presentation divine and the experience priceless.
