Board your yacht charter from our 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, 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.
Customised itineraries can include island-hopping journeys over several days, using the Ambassador as your base in the Cyclades, or exploring 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 all to yourself, before the rest of the world awakens. We do our utmost to make anything that is even remotely possible, a reality.
Take to the skies by helicopter ride and survey the amazing blue expanse of the Aegean Sea and the neighbouring Cycladic islands.
Fly over our sun-baked island dotted with whitewashed houses, across to Delos and Rhenia and further out towards Tinos, Paros and Naxos which each have their own character though 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.
Owner’s Tip: “The celebrated Myconian tradition of hospitality finds its highest expression in welcoming a guest to our kitchen. The kitchen is one of my favourite parts of the hotel and I may even drop in to learn a few tricks.”
Join our chef Ilias Maslaris on his morning run to choose fresh organic vegetables from the local market and exclusive suppliers, as well as select the day’s catch straight off the fishing boats. Set aside time in the afternoon to enjoy a private Mediterranean cooking class.
Share the resulting culinary collaboration with your partner or family that evening, along with a special Greek vintage on the house, selected by our sommelier to accompany your ‘home-cooked’ feast’.
Celebrate your first evening on Mykonos savouring regional flavours and rare vintages with a 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 Ilias Maslaris 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 catch 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 essential!
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 are personalised to suit your needs. Our 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; Augustinus Bader, the eponymous brand of a world-renowned biomedical scientist whose award-winning range of products and protocols has set new expectations for regenerative skincare ; St. Barth, the highly sought-after Caribbean line prized by beauty professionals worldwide for the exceptional quality of its entirely natural floral blends.
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 that places the body and mind in 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. Spa treatments are the perfect complement to create a 360-degree Ambassador wellness experience.
The crystal waters of Mykonos offer many opportunities for diving and snorkelling, including two shipwrecks and a rich variety of marine life.
Visibility is fantastic and sites are adapted to weather conditions and diver experience. For experienced divers, further options include Night Diving, NITROX-enriched air and Deep Diving.
The highlights, among many others are: Paradise Reef at a depth of 2-30m; Paradise Point’s dramatic topography at depths ranging from 10-30m, with swim-throughs and steep drop-offs, as well as interesting ancient artefacts; the Anna II Wreck, a large cement carrier which sunk to a depth between 18-35m in July 1995 and is accessible only to divers certified to PADI Advanced Open Water; the desert island of Dragonisi, located a 40-minute boat ride to the south-east of Mykonos and which boasts spectacular rocks formations and caverns with walls covered in small yellow anemones, a great dive site with a depth of 3-30m for underwater photography enthusiasts. Commonly encountered marine life includes octopus, wrasse, barracuda, bream, grouper, moray eel, lobster, nudibranch, starfish, sponges and anemones among others.
The beach below our hotel is as beloved for its fine sand and crystal water, as for its action-packed offering of watersports which includes jet-skiing, instruction in wakeboarding, surfing, skating or water-skiing, tube-sofa and banana-boat rides, canoeing and snorkelling.
Glass-bottom boat rides and private yacht charters can be booked to depart from our jetty. Our guest services are at your disposal to make advance bookings or for additional information.
