Mykonos is one of Greece’s premier holiday islands, with stunning scenery and charming small houses lining its streets. However, if we are honest, this is not what the resort is best known for. Those who know Mykonos will know that it is famed for being one of Europe’s premier party destinations, and as such, it is a place you’ll want to come to let your hair down more than somewhere you’re going to want to bring the kids. Below are some prime examples of classic adults-only hotels in Mykonos. These are the ideal places to book when you’re looking to have a little — or a lot of fun!
Located just above the accurately-named Super Paradise Beach, this hotel offers some of the best views of the island. On request, you can travel free from the port or airport by shuttle, and on arrival here you’ll never be short of options for something to do. Your residency here will entitle you to spend time in the luxurious outdoor pool, while a small extra charge entitles you to massages and spa treatments. Each room, along with air-conditioning, includes a balcony that looks out over the sea or the pool, and some also include a hot tub. In short, this is a luxury hotel which offers a treat for the eyes and the body.
Offering the splendid Cycladic architecture that is a signature of the island, Kirini is one of Mykonos’ true jewels. Located close to the exclusive Ornos beach, this hotel offers a touch of luxury in everything from the innovative menus at the on-site restaurant, to the poolside bar and, in each room, a relaxing seated area with a flat-screen TV. Air-conditioning is standard, and the centre of Mykonos is just 3.7 miles (6km) away, while Psarou Beach, a party haven, is a little closer still.
Just over half a mile (1km) from the airport, this is the perfect hotel for anyone who wants to get right into their holiday. After the short trip to your accommodation, you’ll be greeted by an outdoor pool with a swim-up bar, rooms with private balconies, and the town of Mykonos itself within short walking distance. Two miles away (just over three km), you’ll find Psarou Beach, making this hotel convenient for everything you could have in mind during your break.
For holidaymakers who enjoy a view, this hotel will be right up there with the best Mykonos has to offer. An outdoor infinity pool offers spectacular views over the Aegean Sea, offering a perfect way to while away some time. The hotel has an ethos that leans very much on wellness — there are numerous spa treatments and integrative therapies to ensure you leave feeling relaxed — and the outdoor restaurant presents you with the chance to enjoy healthy food in a nourishing atmosphere. A special word for the staff, too, who go out of their way to ensure your comfort.
Located approximately a quarter of an hour from the beach on foot, this hotel is more secluded than some options, and it is marked by luxury throughout. The rooms are spacious and modern, and dining facilities include a healthy breakfast buffet along with the authentically Greek “Lady Finger” restaurant and its four-course degustation menu. The Earth Spa offers beauty and health treatments, while wellness fans will also be excited by the on-site mini gym.
If you are looking to get married somewhere idyllic and wonderful, then you could do a lot worse than check out the San Giorgio Hotel, which features a private wedding chapel on the grounds and is located among some of the most incredible scenery on the island of Mykonos. It’s equidistant between the Paranga and Paradise beaches and, along with free WiFi throughout, offers traditionally-cooked fresh food, sourced on the day, in an excellent on-site restaurant. With the centre of Mykonos and the airport, within a 10-minute drive, you can find a few better options for a hotel on the island.
As the title suggests, this hotel is exclusively for couples — it’s an ideal spot for a honeymoon, with suites for that exact purpose on site. It’s also an ideal place to come for a romantic getaway. The vibe on site is extremely chilled and friendly, and cosiness is emphasised with the rooms both from the décor and a furnishing point of view. Guests are welcomed with a traditional drink and small snack, and light meals are served throughout the day. Additionally, some of the more exclusive suites have their own private pools.
Just a minute away from the beach, this Cycladic-decorated boutique hotel will be to the taste of any visitor. The centre of Mykonos is 2.5 miles (4km) from the hotel, and the airport at a similar distance, making transport very easy for guests, and the suites themselves are luxurious — some feature their own swimming pool, others a hot tub, while every suite has its own sitting area with flat-screen TV. Perhaps the showpiece of the whole hotel, though, its magnificent water’s edge swimming pool with stunning views over the Aegean Sea.
Your comfort and convenience are a priority at the Kosmoplatz Beach Resort, as the booking price includes several add-ons such as direct transport from the nearby Mykonos Airport and a 20-minute complimentary session in the hydromassage pool. Rooms feature large-screen TVs with satellite channels, and a rooftop restaurant offers stunning views as well as excellent fresh food and cocktails. Should you bring a car, you can park it for free on site, and you’ll be just five minutes’ drive away from the famous Psarou beach.
Pietra e Mare is dubbed by its owners as one of the smallest luxury hotels in the world, and it is true that its small size is noticeable when you arrive. However, this merely adds to the exclusive feel of this wonderful little hotel. Each room has its own balcony with stunning sea views, and you’ll certainly want to take to the outdoor terrace where you will find hammocks to laze away the days, and also have the opportunity for massages to soothe the aches and pains of working life. Meals in the on-site restaurant are the perfect way to end your day.
