Hotel Synopsis

The below text is a full description of the under development property, giving all the details regarding the hotel's story, concept, operation, and experiences, that will provide to its guests.

Located in between Mykonos Chora and the island’s most famous beaches like Elia, Super Paradise, and Kalo Livadi, Casa di Pietra is a small, Adults-Only Boutique hotel, that presents a villa-like experience that makes its guests feel like home from the first minute of their stay. Its original concept, mixes privacy with get-together habits, creating a unique ambiance for travellers who are looking to try a more easygoing aspect of the Mykonian Luxury Lifestyle.


Featuring 11 Rooms with Private Balconies or Front-Pool Verandas with Sunbeds & Umbrellas, the hotel becomes the perfect spot for couples or group of friends who want to enjoy a more intimate way of their holidays, feeling, at the same time, like real guests of a Mykonian Family. The Main Pool Living Room, the outdoor Dining Lounge, the Reception/Bar, and the DIY outdoor Kitchen and Barbecue, become landmarks of the original Hotel Experience of Casa di Pietra, as they really simulate a ‘feel like home’ atmosphere, with high hospitality and hygiene standards.

With the Mykonian lifestyle to “demand” day-long visits to beaches, fun nights out in Chora, and a good body shape, Casa di Pietra has an answer to all these needs of a modern traveller: its location is close to Chora and the most popular beaches, its vivid Reception/Bar as well as the central pool are the ideal places to start a fun night out, while the outdoor and indoor fitness spaces allow guests to achieve the balance they seek for and give a wellbeing touch to their holidays.


Last but nor least, for larger groups that travel for special occasions like family gatherings, work retreats or even small weddings, Casa di Pietra offers the option to book the entire property and convert the hotel into a unique 10-bedroom villa, ideal for people who want to share their summer experiences, yet maintain their privacy.


No matter how you choose to stay at Casa di Pietra, you should be certain that this small hotel will become your summer home in Mykonos for a Few Days!

Hotel Typology

The first stage of our Services, which includes the Research & the Typology Study, helped the Hotel Owners take their final decisions regarding the hotel's Typology (type of property, room types, grounds, etc) and its main Features and Facilities, aiming to increase the hotel's ADR as well as its sales potentials from its various departments and services.

Hotel Concept Development

During the Hotel Concept Development process, we specified the main idea and the narrative of the new hotel, which will allow it to stand out from the competition. At the same time, we specified all the new hotel's experiences, services, and operation model, in order to help the architectural and design teams to capture all the requirements for its final design.

We were inspired to create a concept that would combine seamlessly both sides of the Mykonian summer lifestyle. Where the local easy-going spirit, blends with luxury and the iconic Cycladic architecture, Casa di Pietra is born.

Hotel Branding & Implementation

In order to have a fuller image of the Concept, we have created an initial branding for the new hotel that captures its feel and essence, and which must be taken into account during the design process. At the same time, we presented a series of indicative applications and implementations of the branding, in order to convey in a more tangible way the feeling that will be exuded during the hotel's visual communication.

Name Description

The name "Casa di Pietra" is inspired by the local rock that is a key element of the hotel landscape. Specifically, each term of the name reflects a specific meaning:
Casa → From the building, which resembles a luxury home
Pietra → From the Landscape of the hotel, where the Mykonian Stone prevails & From the name of the owner.

Logo Description

The logo is inspired by the concept of stone, which connects and integrates the hotel with its natural environment. The name Casa di Pietra refers to the local rock that is a key element of the hotel landscape. However, in the logo, the meaning of stone is depicted completely schematically and abstractly, while the angles and straight lines give a fresh character and make it very modern and dynamic.

At the same time, the chosen symbol is very distinctive and recognizable, while it has an excellent application in various elements of the hotel, such as towels, bathrobes, slippers, etc.
