IKISMOS Mykonos | Mykonos
A 5* Resort in Mykonos presents the island’s authentic lifestyle, and creates the perfect complex of residences, resembling the Cycladic neighborhoods.
What we did for this project:
Design & Operational Briefs
Year of Operation
IKISMOS is a 5* Resort in Mykonos that presents the most original and independent holiday idea, and connects you with the island's original lifestyle, making you part of it for a few days!
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.

The Cycladic Yards
The ‘Framed’ Pool
The Main Square
The Myconian Farm
The ‘Sacred' Wellness Centre
Suites with Jacuzzi
Maisonettes with Sharing Pool
Maisonettes with Private Pool
Villa with Private Pool
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.
Sources of Inspiration
Island's authentic Lifestyle
The Traditional village of Ano Mera
The multicultural character of Mykonos island
The traditional Greek breakfast
The co-sharing yards
The "Farm Sunday Brunch"
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.
The word "IKISMOS", in Greek "Οικισμός" means any small set of houses. As in all the Cycladic islands, there are scattered small settlements, also in this hotel, we were inspired to create a name that would represent the three small neighborhoods within the property itself.
When we designed the logo, we tried to resemble the island’s authentic lifestyle, and the complex of residences that comprise the island's neighborhoods, with Cycladic yards & central squares. Thus, we came up with a minimal logo, which represents the character of the hotel and its signature experiences .
For the completion of the project, Destsetters collaborates with esteemed Architectural and Design teams, in the context of the thorough application of the concept to the overall experience, the correct specification of the anticipated operational needs, and the new hotel's commercial potentials. The Architectural & Design teams are selected by the investors/project owners and play an active part in the overall decisions regarding the development of the new property.
