The Mykonian region of Aleomandra is named after the sacred Delian stables that, according to myth, provided shelter to the horses of the Olympic god Apollo. Centuries later, Kalesma Mykonos rises out of that same Mykonian earth to become one with the legends.
‘Kalesma’ means ‘inviting’ in Greek, a word that best expresses the ethos of our privately owned luxury boutique hotel. We welcome travelers into our exclusive hideaway to share in our special slice of the Mediterranean.

Had an amazing stay at Kalesma Mykonos and came back impressed with the hotel, design, rooms, food, service. Elevated Mykonos to another level!!!! Loved the whole experience and definitely recommend for couples and families.
Κalesma in Greek means a formal invitation for gathering to show you their hospitality.This magnificent place is an open invitation for all whom look for an extrordinary experience in Mykonos with the original greek heritage in hospitallity.Amazing view and facillities,unforgetable tastes at the restaurant.Of course hospitallity and kalesma is nothing more from the people that services you and care about having your most beautifull experience..Thanks all of you for making my time there so great with your calmness and kindness.
I recommend you stay away from this place. You probably are considering coming because you saw some well positioned photos and think the design looks cool, but it’s lipstick on a pig—the property’s views are of power lines, graffiti walls and half built buildings. The reviews on this site seem mostly from honeymoon couples who don’t frequent top international destinations and I guess want to pretend their stay was perfect even though they spent it staring at power lines. Honestly it’s sad, and I’m spending the time to write this largely to prevent that from happening to you. Anyway, the larger failure of the property isn’t the hideous views of power converter boxes outside you room, it’s the bad service. Unfortunately, no one in the management team has any idea what they’re doing when it comes to top international service standards. It doesn’t seem to be their fault, they don’t seem like bad people, they just totally lack any kind of training in those standards. There is no general manager, the property seems to be run directly by the owners, and it shows—this feel like a $2k per night hotel run as an amateur mom and pop bed-and-breakfast operation. Top level service is possible in Greece—Amanzoe and Grace Hotel have both managed it. This place isn’t close, and the problems can’t be solved by minor adjustments, the owners need to hire a GM that knows luxury travel and completely retrain the (friendly but amateur) staff. That probably won’t happen, so again, I recommend you stay away from this place. So I can’t detail top international service standards in a TripAdvisor review, and I only know them myself from having been outrageously fortunate enough to have enjoyed them many times, but let me give some specific comments. I was the last person to be picked up on arrival. The driver was very late, all other passengers had been picked up, and I was left alone like a fool wondering why I’d picked Kalesma. When I finally made it to the hotel, I wasn’t greeted by the GM (there isn’t one) or anyone else, or shown into the hotel, I wandered in and found a check in desk, like what you’d find at an airport hotel. I booked through FHR, which entitles you to an upgrade if available, and an upgrade was available as shown on their website. I was told first that there is only one category of room (false), then that they were fully booked (false) then that they would check and see if space was free and let me know. At lunch, the reservation manager showed up with my upgraded room key, and rather than apologizing for denying me a benefit I was owed again tried to tell me that the property only has one room type, which is demonstrably false—I was shown both room types. I then went to a local gym by car and again waited for another ten minute late hotel car arrival—wouldn’t they have tried to be on time after the first late arrival? When I got back I went to dinner, where I sat down without being greeted and waited for 15 minutes as staff walked past me before giving up and flagging someone down to ask for a menu. When my drink didn’t arrive for who knows how long, I went to the bar to get one myself and brought it to my table. During dinner, my waitress was totally absent—did I have a waitress? I poured my own water at least five times when I ran out. I had breakfast in my room the next morning to avoid the restaurant, but they forgot my beverages, and by the time they brought them my (uncovered) eggs were cold and inedible. I avoided the property for the remainder of my stay except for my last night when I went for cocktails to view the sunset they advertise in the back, but instead found a construction crew using power tools to build some platform right as the sun was setting, obliterating any enjoyment that might have come from the view, which in any event is a mediocre view of more power lines. The bar serves pre-mixed Negronis (lol!), and when I asked for a single large ice cube of the sort used in proper cocktails, I was first told they didn’t have any, then the bartender seems to have remembered from his orientation day that they in fact do and opened, I suppose for the first time, the large cocktail ice cubes. I decided to take the first flight out in morning and asked to speak to the GM before I left, but I was informed there is no GM. That tracks! When I asked the front desk manager why no one from management had checked on me during my stay she said management doesn’t check on guests because they like them to have a comfortable stay. She said this with a straight face, genuinely believing that what she was saying made perfect sense. In general, I wasn’t called by my name by anyone, my preferences were not remembered, my needs were not anticipated, my closed plates were not recognized, salt was brought without pepper, I was told to order things I said I didn’t want, and needless to say, no one did anything special or unexpected. If I wanted anything, I had to fight for it. These are untrained, though well-meaning, amateurs. I just hope honeymooners don’t come here expecting it to be like the photos, or to be treated in a way that makes your trip special, most people don’t get to go to nice places often and if that’s you (or even if it’s not) please stay elsewhere—Amanzoe and Grace Hotel are both great.
