Swanky international members-only club Soho House has landed on the island of Mykonos, opening a 45-room hotel that’s a short walk from Paraga Beach. Located at San Giorgio, the hotel has been redesigned by the Soho House team to create a new club with bedrooms that are available to Soho House members.
Soho Roc House features a poolside verandah, a bar and restaurant and lounge areas. The property takes its design queues from the chilled beach life found in Mykonos, featuring polished plaster floors and warm-tone plaster wall finishes and timber fittings and shelving. Furniture is built-in or made of natural materials, with linen fabrics, natural jute rugs, bespoke ceramic lamps and woven wall tapestries. There are also plants and greenery throughout, giving an outdoor feel.
Bedrooms range from Tiny to Extra Large, with gardens and views of the Aegean Sea. Each one features handpicked furniture, locally made textiles and muted colour palettes to create a feeling of serenity, with all of the same touches as the houses around the world, including mini-bars and Roberts radios in every bedroom. All the bathrooms have Cowshed products and rainforest showers.
A rustic open-plan restaurant serves organic, home-style Mediterranean food. There are sunbeds, loungers with natural tone fabrics, and a bar serving cocktails and smoothies throughout the day. The lounge area has Moroccan-style floor cushions, low seating, cushions and textiles in natural fabrics, and hanging lanterns, with views out over the Aegean Sea. There is also is an outdoor gym, a massage hut and a monthly series of classes, mind and body workshops, therapies and rituals.
Soho Roc House has opened with all the appropriate health and safety measures in line with government regulations, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both guests and the team.
A short walk away is Scorpios beach bar and destination restaurant, set on its own sheltered cove on the southern tip of Mykonos and ideally positioned for sunsets.
Soho House operates multiple clubs in the likes of London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, Hong Kong and Mumbai.
The acquisition of Scorpios marks the first step in Soho House’s plans to build on the existing global network of Houses and its membership community, by creating a new pillar of the business centred around “experiences outside of the houses”.
Soho House and Scorpios are looking at other beachfront sites around the world to bring similar immersive, barefoot spaces that offer a way of living focused on community, connection and creativity to Soho House members and like-minded friends.
