Famous for being a party island for the world’s rich and famous, Mykonos is filled with a range of world-class hotels that feature award-winning architecture, breathtaking views, fine dining restaurants, and exceptional service. With money not being an obstacle, these are the 5 most luxurious hotels in Mykonos, where you will find (among other guests) international celebrities, sports stars, entrepreneurs, and socialites staying each year!
Bill & Coo
Located just outside Mykonos Town, Bill & Coo’s spaces are centred around the stunning view of the Aegean Sea; with the pool, lounge, and restaurant allowing guests to capture the breathtaking vistas day and night. Upon arrival, guests are given a mobile phone with a local number, so they can call a personal driver to take them anywhere on the island. The hotel also features an on-site spa, sauna, and steam room. Extra services include a personal assistant, shopping assistant, and fitness instructor.
This boutique hotel is set on a hillside with water rooms – some with private infinity pools and spas. Or you can opt for a villa, which is where most celebrities choose to stay as it gives them more privacy. There’s also a restaurant, spa, and a split-level infinity pool surrounded by red and black loungers and umbrellas. The beach is only a few minutes walk, but the hotel drivers will take you there and back too. Myconian Avaton also boasts three seawater thalassotherapy pools, three treatment rooms, a 24-hour gym with sea views and a couple of small boutiques for guests to shop.
This is Mykonos’ most famous and sought-after hotel, located 500m from Hóra. It features a 38-metre-long infinity seawater pool with an aquarium bar and wood decking, looking towards the sunset. The service is second to none and guests of Cavo Tagoo have non-stop access to a lit basement pool, spa with steam bath, sauna, and couple’s massage room. The split-level restaurant terrace has breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea; and it looks extra special during sunset.
