Myconian 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 our island.
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. Myconian Ambassador 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, our 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 our 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.
From the attentive therapists at our Thalasso Spa, to our discreet housekeepers, friendly waiters, resourceful concierge and the ever-present director, our staff, known for their courtesy and personal touch, are all accomplices in your great escape.
Myconian Ambassador rooms and suites are designed for maximum space and comfort, with an open flow underpinned by the elegance of contemporary lines, bold proportions and natural textures. The cool touch of marble finds its counterpoint in the tactile warmth of wooded detail. Our private balconies and terraces command legendary views. After dark, a constellation of mood lights glows softly so as not to detract from the magic of the night. Luxury is in every detail: designer fittings, rainfall showers by Vola and Grohe, and the provision of an assortment of Korres and Molton Brown products amplify your bathroom experience; superfine linen, down duvets, a pillow menu, block-out shutters and discreet air-conditioning ensure restful sleep.
Should you wish to connect to the world, you’ll find hi-speed internet, a home theatre with flat screen TV, satellite and a Bluetooth sound system. Room service complements a well-stocked minibar and Nespresso machine and housekeeping services throughout the day are discreet and efficient.

The lavish spread laid out by our chef includes cooked-to-order eggs and a champagne American breakfast buffet, with freshly baked breads, buttery croissants and cereals (catering to those with the most hedonistic tastes as well as those with gluten-free requirements), pressed juices, fruit, nuts, charcuterie and salmon. This is complemented by our traditional buffet of local delicacies such as stuffed vine leaves (dolmades), Greek yoghurt with island honey, fresh tomatoes and cured olives as well as the more indulgent halva, kataifi and baklava.
It’s so good that guests who only drifted in at dawn get up just in time to catch the last delicious Italian cappuccino.
Efisia Fine Dining
Myconian Ambassador restaurant is sheltered from the evening breeze in an alcove of rough-hewn stone. In tribute to our 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.
Our executive chef Ilias Maslaris is passionate about infusing classics with regional flavours and reveres the process of using seasonal organic produce to create world-class cuisine. He is dedicated to preserving the purity of his ingredients, creating subtle and at times surprising combinations. His current recommendations at the Efisia are the poached lobster in a bisque of shrimp, fresh garden vegetables and artichoke hearts, as well as the lamb cutlets with a demi-glacé reduction and smoked eggplant.
Both à la carte options and a menu dégustation are complemented by a discerning selection of wines. Bookings are essential!
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.
With its panoramic view of the entertainment terrace, George’s Bar is an ideal meeting spot and a perfect vantage point from which to watch the day’s rhythms unfold. Our barman is an old hand at preparing your poison of choice, and you can rely on him to provide the perfect accompanying snacks.
Light lunches are served (from 12pm to 8pm) in the bar lounge or at your shaded lounger overlooking the Aegean. There’s nothing more relaxing than a day spent adrift in reverie or reading on our broad daybeds, cared for by our attentive crew bringing fresh towels, irresistible complimentary iced smoothies and anything that might catch your fancy from the George Bar’s menu. This is where to relax, eat and indulge yourself at your own pace.
At sunset, guests returning from the beach mingle around the bar over a glass of wine or an aperitif before retiring to dress for dinner at Efisia or for an evening out on the town. Smooth cocktails flow well into the small hours of the morning. Naturally!

Pool & Beach
Myconian Ambassador magnificent timber deck surrounding the pool is a world unto itself.

Best of all though are the seamless views out over the Aegean.
There’s nothing more relaxing than a day spent adrift in reverie or reading on our broad daybeds, cared for by our attentive crew bringing fresh towels, irresistible, complimentary iced smoothies and anything that might catch your fancy from the bar’s menu. You could do nothing at all. Or why not simply watch the shadows of the palms and the parasols lean into the afternoon until, at sunset, stillness descends on the ocean, bringing with it an incomparable sense of tranquillity and wellbeing. Many guests do just that, which is why we simply named it Stay.
