20 beautiful luxury hotels in Mykonos

Destino Pacha Hotel in Mykonos

Believe me when I say that there are some truly outstanding luxury hotels in Mykonos to choose from. This is great news for those heading to this legendary island in the Cyclades.

Mykonos is a highly popular tourist destination, so it’s no surprise that the island is home to some incredible hotels. I personally love exploring both sides of the island – all the off-the-beaten-track gems, as well as the party side.

Whether you’re out exploring or lazing by the beach, a luxurious base is ideal for getting a relaxing sleep at the end of the day – especially important if you’re making the most of the island’s nightlife!

I love that refined island living is the name of the game at the four and five star properties I’ve selected for my guide, each of which features more than mere nods to its incomparable location. 

Gastronomic experiences, pampering and restorative treatments, pure luxury and partying can all be yours in this Greek island paradise – whichever one of the best luxury hotels in Mykonos you book into.  

Let’s delve into my favourite hotels on this epic island, plus some wonderful recommendations from fellow wanderlusters.

1. Cali Mykonos

Address: Mikonos 846 00, Greece

Best for: A private beach

Cali Mykonos Hotel

I had the pleasure of staying at Cali Mykonos this summer and I can wholeheartedly recommend it if you’re after a serene escape and a feeling of exclusivity. 

Located on the shores of Kalafati, it is a sanctuary of luxury where you feel as though you’re in another world of utmost tranquility.

It’s perfect for those who perhaps don’t want to be right in the thick of Mykonos’ famous party scene – yet the beach club life is still accessible via one of the hotel’s private yachts. 

Cali Mykonos features the longest pool in Mykonos and it is a true marvel. While its private beach is another dreamy selling point.

My suite was incredibly spacious and beautifully designed, but the real highlight was the terrace with private pool and views out to sea. 

Whether you’re eating in the fine dining restaurant, beside the pool or at The Lounge, you’re in for a real treat with irresistible local flavours and a sophisticated atmosphere.

2. Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort

Address: Agios Ioannis, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Stunning Aegean ocean views

Mykonos Grand Hotel

First up, I’d highly recommend Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort. It’s a deluxe five star property that’s located right by the soft sands of Agios Ioannis beach

The hotel occupies a spacious five acre site, and offers 96 boutique-style rooms and suites. 

Accommodation is decorated to reflect the Greek islands, with bright, white walls offset by splashes of bright sky blue which I think creates the perfect relaxing atmosphere.

Bolla Bar Sunset

The light-filled, shared spaces continue this theme while offering views over the Aegean ocean. Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort offers a range of stylish restaurants and bars.

There’s also the sumptuous Althea Spa Retreat named for the Greek Goddess of Healing, plus a stunning seaview pool, a gym and a tennis court. 

Book via Booking.com or access perks like free room upgrades and complimentary breakfast when you book via ASMALLWORLD.

3. Waves, Korfos Beach

Address: Korfos, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Kite-surfing enthusiasts

Mykonos Waves Hotel

Korfos is a Mykonos hot-spot when it comes to kite surfing, and Waves is situated right over the road from this perfect crescent-shaped bay.

This intimate four star resort is typically Cycladic in style, and I love that it’s under a five minute walk from the beach.

Superior rooms, junior suites and suites offer ocean views. While the top-of-the-pile Beach House sleeps up to six and comes with its own outdoor jacuzzi.

Mykonos Waves Luxury Hotel in Mykonos

All air-conditioned accommodation comes with kitchen facilities, Nespresso machine, satellite TV and luxury designer linens.

I’d say Waves is the pick of the luxury hotels in Mykonos for those who want to master kite surfing.

If you’d rather leave the watersports to the professionals, as well as lessons, the property offers an infinity pool with sun loungers.

4. Lyo

Address: Super Paradise beach, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Proximity to the Super Paradise beach

Lyo Mykonos Hotel

Sun-drenched Super Paradise beach is where you’ll find Lyo, a luxurious four star property offering unparalleled Aegean panoramas.

The golden sands are just three minutes on foot from the front door, which I think really sets this hotel apart.

This squeaky-clean boutique hotel offers just 27 rooms, and I love that it has a far more personal feel than other top luxury hotels in Mykonos.

There’s no mistaking the location, either: the decor throughout features styles and colours that are characteristically Cycladic. 

The selection of accommodation at Lyo ranges from spacious doubles to pool, sea view or honeymoon suites that are perfect for a special occasion, pure luxury or that once-in-a-lifetime stay.

All-day dining is offered at the poolside eatery. Plus, the lounge is a lovely spot in which to unwind with a cool drink. 

5. Destino Pacha Mykonos

Address: Agios Stefanos, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Impeccable style

Destino Pacha Hotel in Mykonos

The success of the original Pacha in Ibiza has spawned a seriously stylish sibling in the form of Destino Pacha Mykonos.

A dramatic cliff-top location provides the idyllic setting for five star luxury here. I know you’re going to love this one.

Photogenic Agios Stefanos beach is mere steps away, and this adults-only property offers a decadent spa and guest gym.

Destino Pacha Mykonos

The Mediterranean-style fare served in the restaurant is inspired by the Balearic location of the first Pacha.

There’s a good mix of rooms and suites, some of which offer breathtaking views over Agios Stefanos beach and the Aegean – I’d definitely recommend splashing out on these rooms if you can.

All are slickly styled, bright and spacious, and come complete with private outdoor spaces. 

6. Myconian Naia

Address: Mykonos Town, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: An intimate, secluded haven

Myconian Naia Pool

Without doubt among the best hotels in Mykonos Town in my opinion, Myconian Naia offers boutique accommodation and is perched in a prime position to offer guests superlative views over the Aegean. 

This luxury property is small in size, offering just 18 incredible suites. It punches above its weight in terms of amenities, though, with a fine dining restaurant and a bar right by the glorious infinity pool. 

Myconian Naia Mykonos

For those seeking extra space and seclusion, some suites come with their own pool. All accommodation combines the rustic and the elegant to magnificent effect.

Guests can also enjoy a gastronomic experience each evening at Myconian Naia’s inventive, creative eatery. 

7. Kalesma

Address: Aleomandra, Mykonos, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Sunrise and sunset views

Kalesma Main Pool & Ornos Bay

If you’re wondering where to stay in Mykonos for the finest sunrise and sunset views, then I’d definitely recommend adding Kalesma to your shortlist.

The unique location offers guests 360 degree views over the surrounding area, including the warm Aegean waters.

Accommodation here is designed so guests can combine their indoor and outdoor living spaces with ease.

Kalesma Apollo Villa

The top-drawer Kalesma suites open out onto a private ocean view terrace with their own heated pool. 

This is also the perfect destination for lovers of gastronomy and spa treatments, as both delicious culinary creations and pampering rituals can be delivered within the comfort of your own quarters.

Pere Ubu Mykonos offers fine Greek-style dining, drinks and soundtracks spun by talented DJs.

8. OSOM Resort

Address: Κόρφος, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Great location

OSOM Mykonos

Beach-lovers, I know you’ll be spoilt for choice at OSOM Resort: this luxury Greek island hotel is set close to both Ornos and Korfos beaches.

The latter is a favourite among kite surfers, while the former is heaven-sent for sunbathers and swimmers. 

OSOM Luxury Hotel Mykonos

I think another unique selling point of a stay at OSOM is the fact that Mykonos Town is only a couple of miles away. This makes nights out in the island’s vibrant nightspots a dream come true.

There are just 20 suites at OSOM resort, giving the property an exclusive and personal ambience. These sleep between two and four guests and include family accommodation with garden or ocean views. 

9. Kenshō Ornos

Address: Ornos Beach, Mikonos, 846 00

Best for: Ultimate relaxation

Kensho Hotel Mykonos

If you’re looking for one of the most relaxing hotels in Mykonos, then another of my favourites to give serious consideration is Kenshō Ornos.

This property offers truly personalised hospitality while giving guests the chance to fully unwind and rejuvenate.

Kensho Hotel Mykonos

Highlights of booking into Kenshō Ornos include the cavern spa, Ornos restaurant and a tempting seaview pool.

The combination of natural wood and stone offset with pure white and ocean hues of blue and turquoise reflect the island setting. All while creating laid-back yet luxurious spaces which I think are wonderfully inviting. 

Kenshō Ornos has received various accolades for its accommodation, spa and restaurant. So if you want to stay here and a room is available then it might be best to bag it now. 

10. Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge

Address: Megali Ammos Beach, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Luxury sea view suites

Bill Coo Suites Mykonos

The golden sands of Megali Ammos beach provides the location for Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge.

This is an incredibly romantic, luxurious and relaxing place to stay, complete with a beautiful infinity pool and attentive 24-hour service.

Mykonos Town is just a short stroll away too. Whether it’s a daytime shopping trip or bar-hopping after dark, it’s a cinch to access the dynamic island capital from this property. 

Yet it’s all yours on site to enjoy too. From the Valmont Spa and Gastronomy Project to the Sunset Lounge with superb sunset views and resident DJs, I’m sure you’re going to love this hotel.

Book here for exclusive member benefits and perks.

11. Myconian Utopia, Relais & Chateaux

Address: Elia Beach, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Sustainable luxury

Myconian Utopia

Myconian Utopia pays far more than just lip service to the concept of heavenly Greek island living.

This Relais & Châteaux property is perched several hundred metres above Elia beach, and is actually set into the rugged face of the rock.

Myconian Utopia Hotel

It’s about more than just looks too. I love that Myconian Utopia is committed to sustainable living – so if this is something close to your heart, then I think this could be the perfect property for you.

The materials used throughout reflect this perfectly. Stone from local quarries was used during construction. 

Neutral tones, warm woods and lots of light characterise this contender as the best hotel in Mykonos.

A Myconian family also oversees the restaurant, meaning guests can expect to sample authentic Greek cuisine during their holiday. 

12. Santa Marina, a Luxury Collection Resort

Address: Ornos Bay, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Luxury waterside living

Santa Marina Oasis Pool & Lounge

Santa Marina is situated on a small, pretty peninsula overlooking Ornos Bay. Mykonos Town is only two-and-a-half miles from the resort. 

What I love about this hotel is that it’s all about waterside living, with a restaurant by the pool and glamorous yet laid-back beach bars.

Santa Marina Buddha-bar Beach

Accommodation is provided within a selection of smart suites, rooms and villas, some of which come with a private pool.

Resort facilities include the spacious Gingko Spa that occupies over 400 square metres – this is definitely where you’ll find me!

There are also a couple of elegant bars, an eatery overseen by celebrity chef Jason Atherton, a boutique, a couple of pools and a private beach.

Want VIP benefits, such as late checkouts and room upgrades? I’d recommend booking via the ASMALLWORLD Collection for exclusive perks where available.

13. Myconian Villa Collection

Address: Elia Beach, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Spacious suites

Myconian Villa

If Mykonos luxury hotels aren’t quite ticking all your boxes in terms of space, then I’d recommend taking a look at the Myconian Villa Collection.

This comprises a unique resort concept offering an entirely new level of luxury – and I think they really get it right.

Myconian Villas

Stay here and you can luxuriate in round-the-clock service, 360 degree views, a sandy beach, a Thalasso spa and a saltwater infinity pool.

Then there’s the refined gourmet restaurant and the smart bar for sundowners.

The range of rooms, suites and villas here offer incomparable standards of style, service and space. Even the smallest have sea views and some of these also offer a private jacuzzi or pool.

14. Myconian Korali, Relais & Chateaux

Address: Mykonos Town, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Proximity to Little Venice

Korali Mykonos

Myconian Korali is also a top-notch Relais & Châteaux property. This five star spot is close to Mykonos Town, offering views over Delos island, the town centre and the Aegean from within.

All the shops, eateries and bars of Little Venice are just moments away on foot. There’s also Baos restaurant and Kitrino bar on site.

Myconian Korali

I love that original artworks, white marble and tones reflecting the ocean seen from the window characterise the tempting range of rooms and suites here. 

I’d recommend booking via ASMALLWORLD for access to benefits like late checkouts and room upgrades where available.

15. Myconian Ambassador, Relais & Chateaux

Address: Platis Gialos, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Excellent spa and wellness facilities

Myconian Ambassador Pool

This is one Ambassador that will truly spoil each and every guest. Platis Gialos beach is close by, though there’s no need to venture far.

I love the vast swimming area that provides plenty of space in which to stretch out, unwind or exercise. The smart spa on site also supplies guests with an indoor pool and hot tub.

Guests can also enjoy dining and drinks – by the pool or with a seaview – at the Myconian Ambassador from dawn until dusk. 

Book here for VIP benefits like room upgrades and complimentary breakfast.

For more options from the Myconian Collection, they have just launched their new hotel O at Ornos Beach, which I’d definnitelly recommend checking out too.

16. Bohème, Mykonos Town

Address: Mykonos Town, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Boheiman luxury

Boheme Hotel in Mykonos

If living the barefoot, boho lifestyle while on holiday appeals, I recommend booking into Bohème.

It’s centrally located in Mykonos Town, and I think this typically Cycladic property is perfect for those who love laid-back luxury. 

The decor here is thoroughly modern, with lots of monochrome and the occasional industrial feature.

It’s an all-suite property, with plush shared lounging areas, Bilo restaurant, a bar staffed by expert mixologists and a lovely outdoor pool. 

17. Mykonos Blu

Address: Psarrou, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Luxurious private villas

Mykonos Blu Hotel

I think this one stands out among Mykonos hotels with a 5 star rating because of its private villas and bungalows providing spacious, refined accommodation. 

Then there’s Psarou beach, plus the standard of service and amenities. And I’m sure that shimmering infinity pool will invite you to take a refreshing dip.

Mykonos Blu

While the rejuvenating treatments and sauna at the spa will revitalise even the most jaded partygoer. 

A clutch of restaurants, lounges and bars means there’s no need to leave the premises at all which I think is a real selling point for those who like to stay put.

Mykonos Blu can also offer in-room or on-the-beach dining for those more intimate moments.  

Book with ASMALLWORLD to access exclusive members benefits.

18. Kivotos Mykonos Hotel

Address: Ornos Bay, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: High-end amenities

Kivotos Luxury Hotel in Mykonos

Kivotos Mykonos is one of the best-loved hotels on the island, and I can see why. Guests flock here every summer for sea views, private beach access and a location within easy reach of Mykonos Town.

I love that the property has been styled to resemble a luxurious Greek family home, with original artworks scattered throughout and a contemporary take on local style. 

Kivotos Mykonos

A spa gives guests the opportunity to take a traditional steam bath, an invigorating treatment or a relaxing massage – sign me up!

You can also swim in the saltwater pool, take a yoga class or work out at the gym before dining at Namah, the hotel’s Mediterranean fusion restaurant by the pool. 

Get VIP benefits when you book and make the most of free room upgrades and late check-outs where available.

19. Petasos Beach Resort & Spa

Address: Platy Yialos, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Privacy and sophistication

Petasos Hotel Mykonos

Petasos Beach Resort & Spa has recently undergone a full revamp. So I know you can expect top class accommodation, facilities and service here.

Guests have Platios Galios and Psarou beaches to choose from, both of which are within five minutes’ walk. 

Petasos Mykonos

The peninsula position ensures superb all-round sea views while enjoying the ultimate in romance, luxury and relaxation.

I love that the turquoise and white with pops of colour give rooms a fresh feel. A 500 square metre spa and a pair of smart restaurants complete the picture. 

20. Semeli Hotel 

Address: Panachrantou 1, Mikonos 846 00

Best for: Proximity to Mykonos Town

Semeli Hotel Mykonos

Semeli Hotel is conveniently located in Mykonos Town, and is also just 500 metres from Megali Ammos beach.

The hotel has a spa, a saltwater pool, a gym, a sunny terrace with loungers and a restaurant serving Italian and Greek specialities. 

Semeli Hotel Garden Suite

I think it’s great that you can walk everywhere within town from here. The range of rooms includes spacious suites with private hot tubs.

All accommodation offers a modern aesthetic, offset by traditional touches like exposed stone walls.
