Year of Operation
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 Ano Mera, Mykonos’s most authentic village, the entire experience of IKISMOS aims to simulate life in an original island neighborhood, transforming the local elements to high-end design. From its design to its people, everything is set to reflect the authentic character of Mykonos, while welcoming the visitors into the world of a Greek Islander.
Situated in a very strategic spot, close to a crossroad that leads to some of the most famous beaches of Mykonos, and with a stone pool included in the facilities, IKISMOS, creates the perfect circumstances for its visitors to take full advantage of the Greek sun and enjoy a good swim.
Since Mykonos is the island of socializing, this element as well as Greek food, could not be missing from this concept. For that reason, a series of specially specified facilities & experiences has been designed, to bring people closer and motivate them to get to know each other.
At the end of the day, the main goal of IKISMOS is to make sure that the guests are totally independent and free to create their own holiday experience as they wish. On that basis, hotel service is available is only upon request.
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.
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!

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 the 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.
For this project, we collaborated with:
