Dance the night away on Mykonos, the Cycladic island known for its lively nightlife, while staying at one of these upscale hotels. Book your stay now with Culture Trip.
Mykonos has long been favoured as a celebrity island getaway where you can sunbathe all day by the Aegean Sea before hitting mega-clubs at night. But there’s more to this Greek island than just 24-hour parties. From design-centric boutique hotels to decadent resorts, the finest Greek hospitality is in high supply at the best luxury hotels on Mykonos. Read on to discover them.
Soho Roc House is the ultimate bohemian destination on Mykonos. The hotel’s environment has been immaculately curated with plenty of open-plan, airy spaces and harmonious natural tones throughout the interior. Rooms are all individually decorated with handmade furniture that will make you feel right at home. Enjoy talks, workshops and yoga sessions with experts for the ultimate Zen experience.
Dedication to detail at Bill & Coo Suites has been recognised with numerous awards, and rightly so. There’s no element of the design or experience that hasn’t been thought through in great length – from the star-spangled pool to the soft bedroom lighting. Don’t leave without sampling the artful dishes at Gastronomy Project, the hotel’s renowned restaurant. This luxurious getaway is situated off Megali Ammos Beach and within easy walking distance of the main town.
This five-star getaway specialises in decadent stays, with a wealth of restorative treats on offer. At the world-class spa, you can enjoy a mix of treatments inspired by traditional Greek practices and ingredients. Choose between a cool, minimalist suite with a private Jacuzzi or a three-bedroom villa boasting its own infinity pool. You can even order a floating breakfast – with fresh fruit and croissants – to your suite. Come nightfall, there’s no better place to catch the sunset than from the poolside terrace, cocktail in hand.
With a striking view of the beautiful windmills, Mykonos Theoxenia is a luxury hotel that maximises its waterfront locale. Inside, standard rooms feature atmospheric ’60s furniture, while the stone buildings speak to traditional Cycladic design. The atmosphere by the glistening pool is relaxed, a feeling emphasised by woven hammocks strung between large palm trees and spectacular sea views.
Traditional grandeur meets contemporary style at this five-star hotel on the edge of Mykonos town. There are 39 luxury rooms, nine suites and one mansion to choose from, each exuding the fresh, pared-back feel of brilliant white walls, marble floors and crisp linen. The main pool is framed by chic daybeds, plus there’s a great wellness offering at the spa and a state-of-the-art fitness studio.
This stately old mansion on the edge of Mykonos town has been transformed into a luxury hotel with all the trimmings – think rooftop Jacuzzis, à la carte dining and enough spa treatments to rejuvenate even the weariest of travellers. The whitewashed rooms and suites feature lovely domed alcoves, and some have their own outdoor hot tubs. Thioni restaurant pairs excellent food with wonderful views – the Mykonian shrimps and yuzu scampi score highly with guests.
There’s a cool, bohemian feel to this boutique hotel, which overlooks Ornos Beach. Expect exposed stone walls, a spa set inside a cave and woven daybeds surrounding the inviting pool. In the iPad-equipped suites, taupe-shaded walls are fitted with contemporary light fixtures and hanging seats, while bathrooms come stocked with deluxe Hermès toiletries. The food is a highlight – don’t miss the all-day sushi menu or the homemade pastries to go with your morning coffee.
The deep-blue Aegean Sea backdrop blends seamlessly with the turquoise of the sleek infinity pool at this luxury spa resort. It’s home to the only private sandy beach on Mykonos – for exclusive use by anyone staying in the 114 guest rooms, suites or villas, some of which have up to seven bedrooms. The accommodation follows a beach-chic vibe – think neutral colour palettes offset by crisp white linen, and double doors opening out onto that beautiful sea view.
