The Myconian Ambassador is situated just above Platis Gialos beach on the south coast of the island, renowned for its clear water and fine sands. The famous beaches of cosmopolitan Psarou, picturesque Paranga and Agia Anna are within walking distance along scenic coastal paths.
The idyllic calm of Platis Gialos belies its proximity to Chora – also known as Mykonos town – a mere five kilometres (three miles) from the Ambassador. The town holds fascinating historical and architectural interest and has a relaxed charm. Its boutiques display local craft alongside international fashion, its clubs, bars and tavernas spill out onto the picturesque maze of cobbled passages between whitewashed houses, and the little Byzantine churches retain their unique atmosphere in the glow of votive candles and sweet scent of incense. A public bus service departs from the end of the boardwalk on Platis Gialos to Chora’s Fabrica Square every half hour between 8am and 4am in season (July and August), year-round during “rush hour”, and otherwise on the hour.
To experience the island’s legendary club life, take a short journey off the coastal route or by boat to Cavo Paradiso (2 km away) or Super Paradiso, slightly further afield. The party migrates from sun-drenched beach bars to open-air nightclubs pumping with all-night energy.
Ferries to the famous ruins of Delos, one of the most important mythological and archaeological sites in the Mediterranean, depart from the town harbour. Alternatively, you may choose to explore the neighbouring desert island of Rhenia or the hidden coves of Mykonos by private launch.
Please note that we offer complimentary arrival and departure transfers between 6am and 11:50pm (to and from the Mykonos seaport or airport) in air-conditioned minibuses for all bookings made directly on the hotel’s official website.
Mykonos is an ideal year-round getaway. A typical Mediterranean climate means mild winters and long dry summers, perpetual sunshine, clear blue skies and occasional winds. Temperatures in July and August reach 32°C to 35°C.
Mykonos is easily accessible. Many international airlines operate through Athens, with direct connections out of London (Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton) and seasonal flights out of Zurich, Frankfurt, Milan, Rome, Munich and Barcelona, to name a few. The flight from Athens to Mykonos takes a mere 35 minutes.
Daily connections operate to and from the Athenian mainland ports of Piraeus and Rafina, as well as the Cycladic islands of Tinos, Syros, Paros, Naxos, Ios, Santorini, Andros and Amorgos. There are frequent connections to other sought-after destinations of the Aegean, such as Crete (Heraklion) and Samos, and the Dodecanese islands of Astypalaia, Kos and Rhodes.
