Delos & Rhenia Discovery

Owner’s Tip: whatever else you do on Mykonos, don’t miss visiting the neighbouring island a mere 30 minutes by boat that will transport you to a different universe. As a native of Mykonos, Delos is a place I have never tired of returning to time and again. The mythological birthplace of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Evidence of habitation dates back to the 3rd millennium BC on this little island which was a very important religious centre from the 9th Century BC and for almost one thousand years. From 478 BC, it hosted the treasury of the Delian League before it was removed to the Acropolis in Athens and Delos turned into a thriving port of world trade from the 4th Century BC onwards. A museum among the ruins of the ancient city contains the most important artefacts unearthed during ongoing excavations.
Leaving the Ambassador at noon, you will swim and snorkel around Rhenia and enjoy a grilled on-board barbeque lunch before heading to Delos around 5:30pm, a time of day at which few visitors choose to visit the island. Walk through the ancient city in the company of a certified private guide as the sun sets over its marble ruins. And on your return to Platys Gialos (or Mykonos Town if you choose) around 8pm with champagne in hand, just when you thought it couldn’t get more magical, Chora will light up its glittering night mantle.

Charter a yacht for a day

Board your yacht charter from our private launch on Platis Gialos for an unforgettable day at sea. Tailor your itinerary at will: beach-hop along the south coast to famous beaches and find the hidden coves of Mykonos; visit ancient Delos with its magical aura and take a private tour of its magnificent archaeological remains with a certified guide, followed by a swim and snorkelling in the pristine waters of its sister island, the nature reserve of Rhenia; savour an on-board lunch, a beach picnics and sunset cocktails. We can arrange for jet skis and other exciting activities, as well as instruction for all ages and levels in a wide range of water sports, upon request.

Boats include among others: Cruiser Yacht 560 Express Hardtop to Dellapasqua DC13 Elite and Primatist G41 Hardtops; Azimut 43, 46, 55 and 56 Flybridge; Princess 42 Flybridge; Colvic 36 SunCruiser Flybridge.

Plan a longer sea voyage

Customised itineraries can include island-hopping journeys over several days, using the Ambassador as your base in the Cyclades, or exploring the other its other treasures – the many neighbouring islands such as Tinos, Paros, Naxos, Syros, Folegandros and magical Santorini to name but a few. You may choose to spend a full moon night of unforgettable romance on board, dropping anchor off a secluded beach and enjoying a sunrise yoga session before setting off with a breakfast picnic to discover Delos that you may have all to yourself, before the rest of the world awakens. We do our utmost to make anything that is even remotely possible, a reality.

Flying high

Take to the skies by helicopter ride and survey the amazing blue expanse of the Aegean Sea and the neighbouring Cycladic islands. Fly over the island baked by the sun and dotted with whitewashed houses, out across to Delos and Rhenia and then towards Tinos, Paros and Naxos which each have their own character although they are only a few nautical miles from one another. In a little under an hour, you will have seen our islands like a bird, from a perspective to which not even the locals are privy.

Cook with our Chef

Owner’s Tip: The celebrated Myconian tradition of hospitality finds its highest expression in welcoming a guest to our kitchen. Join our chef Giorgios Mouskeftaras on his morning run to choose fresh organic vegetables at the local market and from our exclusive suppliers, as well as select the fresh day’s catch straight off the boats. Set aside time in the afternoon to enjoy a private Mediterranean cooking class. The kitchen is one of my favourite parts of the hotel and I may even drop in to learn a few tricks. Share the resulting culinary collaboration with your partner or family that evening, accompanied by a special Greek vintage on the house, selected by our sommelier to accompany your ‘home-cooked’ feast’.

Fine Dining

Celebrate your first evening on Mykonos savouring regional flavours and rare vintages by booking a spectacular candlelit dinner under the stars at Efisia, our restaurant sheltered from the evening breeze in an alcove of rough-hewn stone. In tribute to our guiding philosophy, it is named after the Greek word ‘physis’ (φύσις), the philosophical term for ‘nature’. As one of the top tables on the island, Efisia pairs the culinary tradition and refined atmosphere of Relais & Chateaux with our down-to-earth passion for food.

Our Executive Chef Giorgios Mouskeftaras combines classic culinary traditions with a contemporary sensitivity to Mediterranean flavours. His distinctive touch transforms the finest farm-to-table produce and the fishermen’s daily without losing the thread of simplicity and seasonal ingredients. Both à la carte options and a menu dégustation are complemented by a discerning selection of wines. Bookings are essential!

Thalasso Spa

Prepare for the restorative benefits of the Aegean with a pit stop at our spa on arrival. At the very least, book an exfoliating scrub and hydrating massage to prepare your skin for the blessings of the Myconian sun, saltwater and ionized sea air. Steam rooms, Thalasso pools with different temperatures and salinity, exclusive products and the able hands of our expert therapists await you.
Select your treatment from a menu of spa classics, complemented by a range of holistic therapies that will be personalised to suit your needs. Our expert therapists use two exclusive and award-winning ranges: Elemis, the leading professional British Spa and therapeutic Skincare science, renowned for exceptional dynamically active, anti-ageing ingredients and effective massage sequences; St. Barth, the highly sought-after Caribbean line prized by beauty professionals worldwide for the exceptional quality of its entirely natural floral blends.

Balance Body & Mind

Anticipate your Mykonos indulgences with a fitness programme scheduled ahead of time. Our private yoga and Pilates instructors are at your disposal to help you maintain your fitness, or take it to a new level – one week of regular practice is all you need to transform your life. If you are already a seasoned practitioner, you will know all about the restorative power of yoga to place the body and mind in perfect equilibrium, but you may find that the idyllic conditions on Mykonos enhance these benefits. As a beginner, breathe, stretch, relax and follow our lead. We have a state-of-the-art Pilates Studio and our private yoga sessions place an emphasis on special settings such as secret sunrise or full moon yoga, as well as sunset yoga paired with meditation.
