Condé Nast Traveler magazine has just named Ftelia Beach Club in Mykonos the best beach club in the world for 2020. The 60s retro vibe of this stylish club has sparked high praise and the imaginations of those who’ve visited so far.
Ftelia Beach Club, which takes its essence from the classy resorts of Southern France from the 60s and 70s, is a seamless blend of Mykonos excitement and unbelievable beachfront nature.
One star of the Ftelia Beach Club, Michelin Chef Nikos Fotiadis, has brought his creativity and genius in dishes guests won’t find elsewhere. His reputation precedes him and is expanded for those who have already tasted of his numerous gastronomic masterpieces. The club’s menu reflects Cycladic and Aegean flavors in imaginative dishes, succulent sweets, and unique cocktails as well. Here is what the editors of the famous travel magazine had to say about the club:
“A far more recent but sure-to-be-a-hit addition to the beach on Mykonos’ wild northern shore is this club, huddled into a sheltered corner. Its unexpected burnt-orange palette was conceived by designer Fabrizio Casiraghi when he flew over the island for the first time and admired the contrast between the terracotta roof tiles and the white architecture below. The club spills down, amphitheater-like, towards the sand.”
The magazine’s praise continued with bright reflections of the club’s athletic vibe, the amazing restaurant’s precious gastronomy offers, and the remarkable Gae Aulenti designed furnishings.
Chef Nikos Fotiadis not only holds a Michelin Star, but he’s also been the recipient of two Toques d’or Awards by Athinorama. And as for the club’s other offerings, people looking for the perfect place to host weddings and other events will certainly want to consider the club’s understated barefoot chic.
Paris-based designer Fabrizio Casiraghi has recreated the magnificent Athens Riviera 60 years ago, so guests full well expect the spirit of Aristotle Onassis to hover over their best Mykonos fantasies. Interni Group has done a magnificent job this time.
