Luxury Hotels on Mykonos
THE MYCONIAN COLLECTION
The Myconian collection is a homegrown and family-owned hospitality empire that includes nine of the leading luxury hotels on Mykonos, among which three distinguished Relais & Chateaux, two “Leading Hotels of the World” members and a Design Hotel.
In placing the first stone to the Collection in 1979, our father George Daktylides became the island’s third hotelier with the twenty-five room Kohili. Six years later, Kyma and Kalypso joined Kohili and Korali to form what became known as “K-Hotels“. On the strength of its success and growing demand, the Daktylides family went on to open the first luxury establishment of its kind on the island that was awarded its five stars immediately on opening in 1992 – this being none other than the Ambassador Relais & Chateaux. Always true to the maxim of capturing the essence of the Myconian charm and beauty for which travelers come halfway across the world, we continued to expand the Collection: with the five-star hotel Royal Myconian in 2000, joined by the Imperial in 2002, the Villa Collection in 2012, Utopia in 2013 and Avaton in 2014.
Our father eventually retired as CEO a few years ago and handed over the management of the Myconian Collection to his four sons, my brothers Panos, Markos, Marios and me. We learnt by example from our parents (more about Our Family Story), who always strived to improve themselves and the business, about the importance of growth and innovation. In 2015, the Ambassador underwent a substantial transformation under the guidance of internationally acclaimed architect Galal Mahmoud (more on The Renovation), And in January 2016, the Kyma Design Hotel, Naia Suites and the Korali Relais & Chateaux emerged with unprecedented glamour from the Collection’s prized founding location on the edge of Mykonos town.
We lend new meaning to the Greek work “Philoxenia”, the ancient tradition of hospitality and look forward to welcoming you to this paradise where old and new come together to create timeless luxury and unforgettable memories.
