The best places to stay in Mykonos:

For Lux

Not too long ago this island was a premier resort for gay travellers, so there's no shortage of camp-ish luxury. Both clubs and accommodation. But the celebrity jet-setters who currently favour the island have design-chic-ed up some of the luxury.

  • For money's-no-object lux, the Kivotos Club Hotel is the best place to stay on Mykonos. They send a limo to collect you. And their services include 'private yacht rental'. As well as a cigar and caviar bar.
  • Mykonos Blu also offers serious luxury. Stay in a private villa with your own private pool, and mini-garden; and cap off your evenings in their 'long hours' cocktail bar open pretty much all the time. Also one of the best places to stay in Mykonos for honeymooners.
  • For traditional glamour, one of the best places to stay is Mykonos Theoxenia. It's 60s-tastic with its architecture and colour scheme - like being a James Bond glamour-puss!

Discover the REAL Charm of Mykonos

Beneath the glitz and busy throngs, Mykonos still has a lot of charm. Once one of the barest, poorest islands in the Cyclades, it has adapted to popularity without losing its traditions. Mykonos Town's layout and bougainvillea covered architecture make it easy to feel lost in a Greek island dream. And the famous windmills are more than just Kodak-fodder.

  • The Semeli Hotel is one of the best places to stay in Mykonos to feel the island's real pulse. This traditional mansion, and surrounding village of villas, stands stylishly aloof, but is close enough to enjoy local tavernas and explore the old town.
  • Another of the best places to stay in Mykonos if you want peace as well as parties, the Hotel Elena is a simple pension in the heart of the village.

Best places to stay in Mykonos for Fun in the Sun

If you want to relax and recharge in the sun by day so you can eat, drink and dance all night then these beach-side beauties are some of the best places to stay in Mykonos.

  • Did we mention Mykonos Blu's private beach is one of the best on Mykonos?
  • As a contrast you can catch the same sun on your private balcony or the roof terrace of the Zorzis Hotel, also one of the best places to stay in Mykonos if you're on a budget.
  • The party beaches are on the island's south coast, and the quieter ones are to the southeast. But you can reach them all by bus or boat. So the Hotel Rochari might be the best place to stay on Mykonos. It's convenient for transport, the location is excellent and it's very reasonable.
