Summary

The Ambassador combines the art de vivre of a Relais & Chateaux with the privilege of one family’s island roots, capturing not just the inimitable lifestyle luxury that brings the world to Mykonos, but the very essence of the island. For those who can read between the lines, it is not just a hotel…

The tranquillity of being away from the island’s party pulse changes in a moment with a short stroll across to Psarou, with its beau monde and superyachts at anchor, or to Paranga’s lively small tavernas frequented by the locals. The private launch can take you to the mysterious ruins of ancient Delos or Rhenia’s hidden coves, and even the vibrant Chora, with its whitewashed maze of boutiques and bars, is only minutes away by car.

Built in sympathy with the slope, mere steps from the fine sands of Platis Gialos, the architecture blends contemporary chic with tones and textures borrowed from the local vernacular. Interiors that embody the clean line and cool sophistication of high design flow into the quiet comfort of luxurious bedrooms and suites, or spill out onto the spectacular pool deck, all without ever breaking the spell of magnificent Aegean views.

There is an incomparable sense of ease as light-filled mornings drift effortlessly into perfect poolside afternoons at the terrace that is a world unto itself, with casual lunches and ice-cool cocktails served from George’s Bar. And as shadows lean towards evenings, guests mingle over sunset aperitifs, before dining in the candle-lit glow of Efisa, one of the island’s top tables.

Location

The Myconian Ambassador is situated just above Platis Gialos beach on the south coast of the island, renowned for its clear water and fine sands. The famous beaches of cosmopolitan Psarou, picturesque Paranga and Agia Anna are within easy walking distance.

The idyllic calm of Platis Gialos bay belies its proximity to Chora – also known as Mykonos town – a mere five kilometres (three miles) from the Ambassador. The town holds fascinating historical and architectural interest and has a relaxed charm, with its boutiques parading local craft alongside international fashion, its clubs, bars and tavernas that spill out onto the picturesque maze of cobbled passages between whitewashed houses, and the little Byzantine churches that emit the glow of votive candles and the sweet scent of incense. A public bus service departs from the end of the boardwalk on Platis Gialos to Fabrica Square in Chora every half hour between 8am and 4am in season (July and August), year-round during "rush hour", and otherwise on the hour.

To experience the island’s legendary club life, take a short journey off the coastal route or by boat to Cavo Paradiso (2 km away) or Super Paradiso, slightly further afield. The party migrates from sun-drenched beach bars to open-air nightclubs pumping with all-night energy.

Ferries to the famous ruins of Delos, one of the most important mythological and archaeological sites in the Mediterranean, depart from the town harbour. Alternatively, you may choose to the neighbouring desert island of Rhenia or the hidden coves of Mykonos by private launch.

TRAVEL BY AIR
Mykonos (Mykonos Airport (JMK) - approx. 4 km away, 15 min.) is easily accessible. Many international airlines operate through Athens, with direct connections out of London (Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton) and seasonal flights out of Zurich, Frankfurt, Milan, Rome, Munich and Barcelona, to name a few. The flight from Athens to Mykonos takes a mere 35 minutes.

TRAVEL BY FERRY
Daily connections operate to and from the Athenian mainland ports of Piraeus and Rafina, as well as the Cycladic islands of Tinos, Syros, Paros, Naxos, Ios, Santorini, Andros and Amorgos. There are frequent connections to other sought-after destinations of the Aegean such as Crete (Heraklion) and Samos, and the Dodecanese islands of Astypalaia, Kos and Rhodes.


The best time to travel to Mykonos
Mykonos is an ideal year-round getaway. A typical Mediterranean climate means mild winters and long dry summers, perpetual sunshine, clear blue skies and occasional winds. Temperatures in July and August reach 32°C to 35°C.

Efisia - restaurant

This restaurant is sheltered from the evening breeze in an alcove of rough-hewn stone. In tribute to the guiding philosophy, Efisia is named after the Greek word physis (φύσις), the philosophical term for 'nature'. As one of the top tables on the island, Efisia offers a gourmet menu in the Relais & Châteaux tradition, pairing a culinary experience with luxurious atmosphere.

The executive chef Ilias Maslaris is passionate about infusing classics with regional flavours and reveres the process of usin...

George's Bar - bar

George’s Bar is named after patriarch George Daktylides, who laid the first stone to the Myconian Collection in 1979 and remained at the helm as CEO until he retired in 2010, handing over a hospitality empire to his four sons. You may spot him at the bar on rare occasions, lifting his glass to his wife Eleftheria without whom none of it would have been possible. And you may also find his mischievous namesake George, son of the Ambassador’s owner, teasing his grandfather with the claim that the bar was in fact named after him.
