The Sunset Ritual

San Giorgio Mykonos, Mykonos, Greece

Your vision floods with the deep, azure blue of sea and sky. Sunlight dances on the surface of the Aegean as you plunge into its cool, clear waters, hearing only the rhythmic thud of your heartbeat. Rising to the surface, you feel sun and wind on your face. In the distance, people are gathering. You hear music, the beat of hand drums syncing with the crash of waves, bonfire smoke mirage-like in the air. Friends arrive—some old, some new. You join them on the beach to dance, to laugh, to revel—to live this ritual—as the sun moves across the sky.

"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination…" Plato

THE HOTEL — Situated on one of the most scenic areas of Mykonos, San Giorgio is a stunning testament to holistic design and bohemian-inflected luxury. Light and air dominate across the beach property, shimmering over polished cement counters in the open-plan kitchen and throughout the alfresco lounge and deck that look straight out to the ice-blue Aegean. With a spotlight on origin and craftsmanship, only a few carefully chosen accessories—raw wood chairs, traditional Greek woven-top stools, cotton matelassé quilts—give the right warmth to an otherwise open space. A 10-minute walk away, sister property Scorpios beach club, with its cool and airy stone clubhouse and bar overlooking two different beaches, is a central hub of the San Giorgio community.

"We open up a world full of wonders, where freedom and individuality are celebrated in a hedonistic and intimate climate." — The Magic Movement

Music becomes ritual, and ritual nurtures community, from afternoon concerts to experimental sound installations to dance parties bringing likeminded people together as the sun goes down over the Aegean Sea. An international family of musicians, DJs, and artists who are frequent residents of San Giorgio and Scorpios beach club, the Magic Movement takes a fresh approach to communal celebration, departing from traditional paths to move its own tropical way in search of new forms of expression. The Magic Movement is more than music. It’s a way of life.
