For those who love the isle of Mykonos but would rather avoid its mazelike town and its summer crowds, Pietra e Mare on the southeastern coast is your ideal Greek retreat. The hotel, named for the area’s “stone and sea,” is a luxe property that at first sight may seem like just another blue- and-white-washed Aegean abode. But instead of small, pensione-like rooms, you’re treated to large suites with kitchenettes; some rooms are also furnished with lofts, separate living rooms, private terraces, and soaking tubs (be sure to be specific when you book). Immaculate white rooms reflect the Greek sunlight, accented by shades of blue on the walls, candleholders, pillows, and vases; all have satellite TV and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Because the hotel is for couples only, it’s no wonder that it’s a favorite honeymoon hotel for Europeans. (If you’re not yet hitched, there’s an on-site chapel for you to tie the knot.) A swimming pool overlooks the ocean, and an open-air restaurant makes full use of the views while serving traditional Greek dishess and fresh fish. But don’t spend your entire romantic getaway indoors: the secluded Kalo Livadi Beach, with private loungers attended to by the hotel, is an ideal spot for an afternoon idyll. Meanwhile, the party town of Mykonos is just 15 minutes away, but don’t be surprised if you prefer to relax at Pietra e Mare instead of joining the revelers.
