With a view of the Aegean, the legendary playground of Poseidon, Zeus, Nessus and other ancient gods, this magnificent hotel with an unlikely geographic location combines modernity and quality to attract the cosmopolitan visitor to Mykonos. Welcome to the Royal Myconian, for an exceptional stay in the heart of the Cyclades islands.
Where the sky and the earth meet
The hotel is perched on a rocky promontory with slopes that defy logic. Furthermore, it evokes an inescapable feeling of abundance in its guests as they approach, higher and higher, the sky so richly evoked in mythology.
A privileged view of the sea and the Cycladic duo of Naxos and Paros, whose mountainous silhouettes can be seen on the horizon, can be uniquely enjoyed from the main terrace overlooking the sandy beach of Elia.
Deck chairs and rustic straw umbrellas are provided exclusively for Royal Myconian guests on this beach, one of the most popular on the island. There’ll be no need to get up at dawn to secure your place in the sun.
Granted, it’s easy to get carried away with the extraordinary views. It’s also worth noting that the Royal Myconian has earned the prestigious Leading Hotel of the World status, henceforth offering its guests royal, attentive and impeccable service.
There’s also a thalassotherapy spa and a gym to relieve guilt from inevitable overeating at Ambrosia Restaurant. At dusk, guests dressed to the nines pass through the imposing wooden doors to discover the panorama terrace. There, they enjoy an à la carte cuisine of disarming simplicity, flawlessly executed by head chef, George Oikonomou. The dishes, inspired by the Mykonian tradition, are enhanced by the subdued lighting of the thousands of candles that dot the stone walls and vaulted ceilings.
A multi-sensory evening that deserves the highest praise, one that few hotels can provide.
Finally, vacationers looking to learn more about the local culture can hop on a daily minibus transfer until the wee hours of the morning to the main village of Mykonos. The stop is conveniently located just a few steps away from the emblematic white mills.
Five room categories
The Royal Myconian skillfully combines new-age common areas and bold architecture. How? With art and rooms that don’t stray too far from Aegean tradition. Except perhaps for free Wi-Fi throughout the property, an irrefutable sign that ancient Greece is a thing of the past.
All rooms have spacious private patios covered with aromatic fuchsia bougainvillea and aquamarine window blinds. While the majority of the rooms have ocean views, some categories even have a private Jacuzzi or infinity pool.
In conclusion, it is an incredible privilege to be in a heavenly setting. Here, guests rub shoulders with the gods and goddesses whose legends have fueled our imaginations. The Royal Myconian is truly the stuff of dreams.
