Kalesma means “invitation” in Greek. This very special invitation to discover the true spirit of Mykonos is manifested in the architecture of the luxury enclosure which mimics the style of a traditional Mykonian village. Located on one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades in Greece, the privately owned Kalesma Mykonos is a contemporary sanctuary, a luxury design resort with a particularly welcoming presentation. Open fireplaces, mesmerising vistas of the sunrise over the deep blue Mediterranean, the stark contrasts of white chalk walls against a steely sky so typical for the Aegaeis and the special light you can only experience in the Cyclades, they all bring to life the epitome of Greek island living – nothing left to be desired for at the Kalesma Mykonos.
