Need to Know Before You Book

Here’s a quick intro to the best areas to stay in Mykonos and where to avoid staying.

In the last 50 years, Mykonos has become a summer playground for the private jet set and celebrities from Marlon Brando, Onassis, Steven Spielberg, Grace Kelly, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Kim Kardashian, and Armani have spent summers partying here.

Similarly to most islands in the Cyclades, Mykonos is divided into different beach or bay areas, with the main one being the island’s Town, also known as Chora.

The partying happens all over, but mainly in the beach clubs of Paradise and Super Paradise Beach and the nightclubs in Mykonos Town.

Sunrise in Mykonos Town, Greece

Old Mykonos Town is one of the most beautiful island towns in Greece, with impossibly winding narrow alleyways built to confuse pirates and nowadays, causing a tourist crush outside the winter months.

There is shopping for every budget here, from global brands such as Prada and Chanel to the Old Town Market selling clothing, jewelry, and home decor. You’ll find them on “The Strip,” which is the “main” street in Mykonos Town, called Matoyianni Street.

Little Venice is the waterfront area next to the old castle and you’ll find a bar and a nightclub on each corner. This means that your suite or villa may be very noisy.

I have never slept through the night in Chora because of loud, drunk partygoers finding their way home at 3 am! That’s why it’s a great idea to stay out of the main party streets and get a little privacy in your hard-earned downtime.

The five hotels I’ve included here in Mykonos Chora give you the best of both worlds – privacy, and quietness at night, but still close to the action. It amazes me that I can be a couple of minutes from the Windmills or Little Venice but on an island of calm and privacy in these properties!

1. Myconian Korali Relais and Chateaux

The elegant 5-star suites with private pools at the Myconian Korali Relais & Chateaux look out to Delos Island and sit just above Mykonos Town, near its famous windmills.

Don’t miss the chance to take romantic, long walks among the twisting alleyways of the old town, only 1000 meters away!

Rooms feature terraces with private pools and stunning sea views. Each type of accommodation ( 16 options in total) offers different facilities, with half of them featuring outdoor jacuzzis and/or private pools.

The Phos superior room and Kynthos junior suite, for example, have outdoor jacuzzis, while the Aeon superior room and Era junior suite, have private pools. Some suites, like Cyclades and Ortigia, include both jacuzzis & private pools.

2. Myconian Kyma Design Hotel

On top of the hill, overlooking Mykonos Town, Kyma (greek for wave) has been offering its high-quality services for over 40 years.

Mykonian Kyma, Mykonian Collective, Mykonos

With a view of Mykonos’s landmark, the windmills, and Little Venice, Mykonian Kyma boasts lavish gardens, private terraces, and art galleries.

The Aegean Room, Paragon Suite, and Sunset Suite have private outdoor jacuzzis. The Horizon Superior Room and the Mediterranean Suite have lovely marble baths, terraces, and private infinity pools.

The main pool and deck are the heart of Myconian Kyma, a relaxing and sophisticated outdoor space with sunbeds, a poolside bar, and lounge areas.

3. Cavo Tagoo

I’m a great fan of Cavo Tagoo in Santorini, so I was excited to see the cave pool at this new property which is just the kind of delightful surprise you get at Cavo Tagoo properties in Greece.

Cavo Tagoo Cave Pool Suite, Mykonos
Cavo Tagoo Cave Pool Suite, Mykonos

In addition to the cave pool suite, the Premium Room and the One and Two-bedroom Villas have private pools. The Two-Bedroom Suite has an outdoor hot tub that is large enough for you and 4 of your closest friends!

The truly new and innovative thing about Cavo Tagoo in Mykonos is that since May 2022, there is an annual Zuma restaurant pool deck party with resident DJs, sun loungers, and day pool, sunset, and evening experiences that embody the Mykonos party atmosphere in a 5-star setting.

If you’d like to experience Zuma without staying at Cavo Tagoo, it’s about 250 Euros a day for entrance, so you may as well stay in one of the beautiful Cavo Tagoo private pool suites!

4. Belvedere Mykonos

You’ll find this luxury 5-star hotel in the bustling center of Mýkonos City next to Fabrika. It’s called a “petite Grand Hotel,” and is a Leading Hotels of the World Property.

Private pool hotel suite, Belvedere Mykonos
Private pool hotel suite, Belvedere Mykonos

In addition to the main hotel and suites, the Belvedere also has Hilltop Rooms and Suites (250 m above the main hotel), and a Waterfront Villa and Suites.

In the main hotel, the Honeymoon Room has a charming private pool and a romantic garden. Standard Rooms with Jacuzzi is a great alternative to enjoy the outdoor jacuzzi, sheltered corner in the Belvedere garden.

The dream suite of Belvedere Mansion features a private pool with a spectacular view and twin dining & pool sunset terraces.

The Belvedere Villa and Summer 3 Bedroom Residence have private pools, while the Summer 2 Bedroom Residence features a one-of-a-kind outdoor plunge pool.

In the Summer 2 Bedroom Suite (ok, so they’re not very original with their room naming!), there’s a private outdoor jacuzzi and you can book the 3 Summer Suites separately or together.

5. Boheme

A member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, there are only six suites in this serene gem of a hotel that manages to find peace and calm in Mykonos Town.

Bohemian Suite View, Boheme, Mykonos Town, Mykonos Island, Greece
Bohemian Suite View, Boheme, Mykonos Town, Mykonos Island, Greece

Of the six suites, the Honeymoon Sea View Suite, Bohemian Sea View Suite, and Grand Bohemian Suite have outdoor jacuzzis and high-quality fittings that are understated and super comfortable.

I can recommend the Bohemian Suite (pictured above) for a sense of peace and for what Mykonos must have been like before it became overdeveloped and overpopulated in the summer.


10 minutes walk from Mykonos Town is the nearest beach, Megali Ammos. “Maegali” means ‘very big,’ and “Ammos” means sand, so you won’t be surprised to know that it’s a sandy beach!

It’s a public beach and the winds can be strong here. Megali Ammos is full of people swimming in the azure clear water, sunbaking, and hanging out at the local taverna during summer.

6. Mykonos Bay Resort & Villas

Mykonos Bay Resort and Villas is on Megali Ammos Beach, just 300 meters away from Mykonos Town, and the pool lounge bar is a beautiful place to watch the sunset (cocktail in hand!)

Picturesque, relaxing and serene atmosphere in Mykonos Bay with a private pool by the sea

Of it’s13 room types, the Deluxe Double Room has both an outdoor jacuzzi and a private pool. The Private Luxury 2 Bedroom Art Sea View Suite also has an outdoor jacuzzi and private pool, while the Private Luxury 3 Bedroom Art Villa and the Standard Premium Residence have outdoor jacuzzis.

The rooms and villas are large, white, and contemporary which guests often comment is a beautiful “Mykonian style.”

Between the beach immediately in front of the Resort, the private pools and jacuzzis, and the enormous main pool, this is a perfect summer holiday spot.

7. Bill and Coo Suites and Lounge

Bill & Coo is a prestigious 5-star hotel located on Megali Ammos Beach, Mykonos, and is a Leading Hotels of the World property that offers sea-view suites and villas.

Splendid private pool with a view of the sea at Bill Coo Suites and Lounge, Mykonos

My favorite suite is the Bill & Coo Suite with Pool which has a private and spacious terrace with stone walls surrounding the pool but with a clear view of the waves and the beach just meters away.

 The One-Bedroom Villas feature a king-size bed, an open-plan living room, indoor and outdoor dining, and lounging areas, and of course, a private pool.

The Deluxe Suite with Plunge Pool overlooks the Aegean Sea is and a perfect spot to watch Mykonian sunsets, while the Honeymoon Suite has a grand terrace, outdoor lounge, and outdoor hot tub.

The luxury suites at Bill & Coo feature contemporary design, modern bathrooms with walk-in showers, and the main hotel pool is a stylish large infinity pool overlooking the beach.

In addition to the main complex, there is also a Bill & Coo Coast Adults-Only coastal suites, 3000 meters away in Agios Ioannis.


Super Paradise Beach Bay is home to the island’s most upscale beach clubs and hosts Greece’s largest beach party. There’s non-stop partying, dancing, and international artists and DJs in the months, 5 km from Mykonos Chora.

And of course, you’re also very close to Paradise Beach and the Paradise Club, the most famous nightlife venue in Mykonos.

The Paradise Club opens around 2 am, but these two properties give you a great view but without any noise!

8. My Aktis Luxury Suites and Villas

My Aktis Luxury Suites and Villas are only 5 minutes away from Super Paradise Beach. The minimalistic design and panoramic views capture the Myconian Island summer ethos perfectly.

5 bedroom villa with private pool and sea view, My Aktis, Mykonos
5-bedroom villa with private pool and sea view, My Aktis, Mykonos

Rooms, suites, and villas in Aktis include shared pools, private mini and full-size pools, and jacuzzis with panoramic views over the Aegean Sea. Hot tubs are featured in 4 room types, one of them being the Grande Suite with Sea View.

The Two Bedroom Villa and Three Bedroom Villa share a beautiful outdoor swimming pool oriented toward the rocky landscape, the sky, and the sea.

Five Bedroom Villa and Six Bedroom Villa include infinity private pools in spacious outdoor areas with flowers and views over the bay.

I love that this architecturally designed property with such high-quality finishes and natural materials is in the heart of the action in Mykonos (only a 5-minute walk to Jackie O’ and the Super Paradise beach bar), but is a sea of calm for when you’ve had enough of the frenetic nature of Mykonian nightlife!

9. Ammonite Mykonos Private Suites

It’s hard to find quality accommodation at one of the world’s most famous beaches, but these 4-star private suites and lovely examples of Cycladic stone design and are very Instagrammable.

Ammonite-Resort villa and-private-pool-in-Mykonos, Greece
Instagramable private pool overlooking the sea in the Ammonite Resort, Mykonos

The Ammonite Resort is 2.5 km from Super Paradise Beach and 2.9 km from Agrari Beach and their rooms have large terraces with private pools or hot tubs as well as beautiful sea views.

The Superior Double Room and Deluxe Double Traditional Stone Room have luxurious private pools, while the Deluxe Double Room has both a private swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi.


Ornos is often described as the most beautiful village in Mykonos and the properties here are of a very high quality. From glass pools to super-romantic and private spaces, you’ll love the best of Ornos’ accommodations.

10. Mykonian O Hotel

Brand new build open for the 2023 summer season, Mykonian O Hotel is the newest luxury offering from the Mykonian Collection and brings to 11 the number of properties that the brand operates on Mykonos.

Night view of Myconian O_private pool suite, Mykonos
Myconian O private pool suite, Mykonos

In this luxurious Adults-only hotel, the pools are located within private outdoor settings, lush foliage, and have intimate lighting and table settings that flow from the living areas of the suites.

On the water but entirely private, soundless, with enormous attention to materials, color, and a restful aesthetic, you can almost feel your blood pressure drop as you enter your suite but then you’ll find you have a huge grin on your face – it’s so nice to find a fun, private, beautiful hotel on Mykonos!

11. Kivotos Mykonos

With a glass pool, a private beach, and moonlit dining on Ornos Bay, there’s a lot to like about Kivotos.

Trip Anthropologist
35 best mykonos hotels with private pools [2023] 56

Like Kivotos Santorini, Kivotos Mykonos is a luxury hotel that pays attention to little details and is superbly located. It is on its own private beach at Ornos Bay.

The hotel has family rooms and the level of privacy it manages, its two on-site restaurants, airport shuttle, and private beach combine to make this an ideal luxury hotel for families.

Six of the Suites have private pools, the Signature 130 Suite has a glass pool (pictured above) and you can see that the dominant color of the suite styling at Kivotos is white.

This suite also has its own sauna and the glass pool extends to the edge of the property with wonderful sea views of Ornos Bay.

The Hideaway Villa with Infinity Private Pool has a separate entrance and manages to hide itself away from the hotel and has a view of the Bay that feels like a separate house. The infinity pool is beautifully landscaped – you’ll never want to leave your own private resort.

12. Mykonos No5 Luxury Suites & Villas

On a hill above the village of Kanalia at Ornos Bay, Mykonos No 5 Suites & Villas has panoramic views from its private terraces and pools.

Two Bedroom Suite Sea View with Private Pool, Mykonos 5 Suites & Villas, Ornos, Mykonos
Two Bedroom Suite Sea View with Private Pool, Mykonos 5 Suites & Villas, Ornos, Mykonos

Many people who’ve stayed here believe this to be the best hotel on the island which I think is because it has a very nice main pool deck area but it also has family rooms, and it’s Two Bedroom Suite with Private Pool and Sea Views can sleep 5.

The most romantic suite is the Signature Suite which has a large screened terrace and private pool overlooking Ornos Bay and romantic bedding.

13. Dreambox Mykonos Suites

Like Mykonos No 5 Suites & Villas above, Dreambox Mykonos Suites is located above Ornos with panoramic bay views and several excellent family options.

Love Nest 2 with outdoor jacuzzi, Dreambox Mykonos Suites, Mykonos, Greece
Love Nest 2 with outdoor jacuzzi, Dreambox Mykonos Suites, Mykonos, Greece

The hotel caters to both couples and families, with a high level of fittings and furnishings, from shopping bags and luxury robes to sea-green crockery.

The two-bedroom villas have private pools, two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and full kitchens as well as private terraces, and private pools that look over the water and the beach at Ornos.

The main outdoor pool is located at the edge of the property with Ornos Bay below and views over the beach.


Lovely Elia Beach is the largest expanse of sandy beach on Mykonos and has some of the best properties with private pools on the island.

It’s 12 kilometers from Mykonos Town and reminds me of Bondi Beach in Sydney – it is both truly family-friendly and LGBTQIA+ friendly and is a favorite beach of the locals as well.

14. Myconian Villa Collection

The Myconian Villa Collection is perched above Elia Bay allowing panoramic views of the Aegean Sea from your private pool. This is my favorite hotel for families visiting Mykonos because of its family villas.

Villa with private pool, Mykonian Villa Collection, Mykonian Collection, Mykonos
Villa with private pool, Mykonian Villa Collection, Mykonian Collection, Mykonos

The benefit of this hotel is the uninterrupted romantic setting, a little apart from the business of the beach areas below.

There are five types of suites and villas. The Elegant Suite has an outdoor jacuzzi, the Lovers Suite has a private pool, and the three Villa options include private infinity pools extending out from furnished terraces.

The hotel’s main swimming pool is surrounded by four-poster beds, sun lounges, and a poolside bar.

15. Royal Mykonian

The Royal Myconian – Preferred Hotels and Resorts is a prestigious 5-star hotel next to Elia Beach but with its own private beach as well.

Royal Myconian Resort, Mykonos, Greece
Picturesque and stunning view from the private pool at Royal Myconian Resort, Mykonos

The spacious rooms and suites are designed as cool sanctuaries, offering private balconies or expansive terraces for guests to enjoy the stunning views.

The hotel offers 12 room types. Guests have the option of selecting rooms or suites with private infinity pools or Jacuzzis. The Lover’s Suite Open Plan with Private Pool has a romantic pink and white theme and a lovely private terrace and pool area with views over the Bay and beach.

The Royal Myconian’s Thalasso spa facilities are extensive and world-class and the main hotel pool area is just as extensive, the main feature being its infinity pool.

16. Myconian Avaton

Named after the ancient Greek term “άβατον” (sacred place), Myconian Avaton is an opulent hotel built on a rocky spot above Elia Beach.

Villa with private pool, Mykonian Villa Collection, Mykonian Collection, Mykonos
Villa with private pool, Mykonian Villa Collection, Mykonian Collection, Mykonos

The Myconian Avaton Features 2 outdoor pools, a thalassotherapy wellness center, a private beach, and a free airport shuttle.

The accommodation options are diverse with each room being unique. However, all units create an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable atmosphere with furnished balconies, private pools, and jacuzzis, overlooking the white sands of Elia Beach.

The rooms are just a little more compact than some of the more expensive 5-star hotels with the same high level of hotel facilities, and this makes it a good value accommodation option, especially for families who will love the two and four-bedroom villas.

17. Myconian Imperial

Myconian Imperial is a Leading Hotels of the World property near Elia Beach, the largest sandy beach on Mykonos.

Luxury Private Pool Villa at Myconian Imperial, Mykonos
Pure luxury and serenity views of the sea from the private pool at Myconian Imperial, Mykonos

Imperial’s facilities include a pool deck and saltwater pools, a jacuzzi tub, a poolside cocktail bar, a modern spa, three restaurants, and a sushi bar.

Of its accommodation options, the Premium and Superior offer the chance for guests to have access to private outdoor jacuzzis or pools as features in large terraces viewing the Myconian seascape.

The lavish Executive and Grand Executive suites have private pools in spacious well-decorated terraces with outstanding Aegean views.

18. Smy Mykonos Suites and Villas – ex Greco Philia

Smy Mykonos Suites & Villas – ex Greco Philia is another exceptional hotel looking down on Elia Beach, 200 meters away.

Private pool in the stylish suites and spacious villas at Smy Mykonos Suites & Villa - ex Greco Philia, Mykonos
Private pool in the stylish suites and spacious villas at Smy Mykonos Suites & Villas – ex Greco Philia, Mykonos

And like the best of these Elia Beach hotels, it also has a private beach, impressive pool and pool deck area, fitness centre, sports activities, and spa & wellness services.

It’s hard to put a finger on why this hotel is so lovely – the guest reviews almost always praise the ‘setting’ and I think its the orientation of the hotel so that the view is 360 degrees of the island of Mykonos as it sweeps from Elia Beach all the way northwards toward Mykonos Town.

The setting of the hotel gives guests a sense of Mykonos which I think is the most memorable part of a stay here.

Three suites have private pools and sea views: the Junior Suite with Private Pool, as well as the Grand Delux Villa and Grand Suite Deluxe, and a sense of restfulness envelops you as the rooms flow outwards to the private terraces and pools overlooking Elia Beach.

19. Senses Luxury Suites

Senses Luxury Villas & Suites in Elia Beach offers a range of accommodation options including 1, 2, 3, and 4-bedroom villas and suites.

Stunning view from a private pool with outdoor sun lounges in Senses Luxury Suites, Mykonos

The property is set back from the beach, but still only 200 meters away, with Agrari Beach 650 m away. It has free parking, a large outdoor pool with a bar, and is highly rated for the service of its friendly staff.

The Three and Four Bedroom Villas have large private pools, and there is a private outdoor hot tub on the terrace of the One-Bedroom Apartment with an Outdoor Hot Tub and the Two-Bedroom Suite with an Outdoor Hot Tub.

20. Arte & Mare Elia Luxury Suites

Right on Elia Beach, these luxury suites are all stone, glass, and the white and blue colors of traditional Cycladic architecture.

Luxurious Private Pool at Arte & Mare Elia Luxury Suites
Luxurious private pool with a lovely sea view at Arte & Mare Elia Luxury Suites

Arte and Mare Elia Luxury Suites has an on-site spa that offers thalassotherapy, aromatherapy, reflexology, sauna, and hammam treatments and there’s a beach bar that serves cocktails as the sun goes down at their private beach area.

There are two swimming pools, a Presidential Suite with Sea View & Outdoor Spa, a Presidential Suite with Sea View & Private Pool, and Two, Three, and Five-Bedroom Villas each with a private pool.

The prize villa though is the Idolio Villa which has 12 bedrooms, a living room with 5 sofa beds, 2 private pools, and 3 outdoor spas! And of course, sea views.


Platys Gialos is a bay, beach, and resort village 5 kilometres from Mykonos Chora (town). Perfect for families, the bay slopes gently down from the beach and the water is clear. Boats moor to one side of the beach and the waterfront is lined with bars and tavernas.

The only downside is there is not a large area free of sunbeds. Windy days can be a challenge here but generally, there is a gentle breeze and the water temperature is perfect.

21. Palladium Mykonos

Located in Platys Gialos, Palladium Mykonos is just a 5-minute walk from Psarou and Platys Gialos Beaches.

Signature Suite, Palladium Mykonos, Mykonos
Signature Suite, Palladium Mykonos, Mykonos

You are getting great food, service, location, room stylings, and ambiance, as well as resort facilities at the Palladium and it is a very popular and highly reviewed hotel.

The food is exceptional here and the only slight qualm I have about the Palladium is that I think that compared to other hotels with private pools at this price point, the rooms are quite small.

The Luxury Double with Private Pool, for example, is only a 32 sq. meter room but has a much larger private pool than you’ll find at most other hotels!

Another plus about the private pools here is that guests in suites with private pools can opt for their breakfast to be served floating in their pool!

I particularly love the styling of the Exclusive Suite with a Private Pool and the Grand Two Bedroom Suite with a Private Pool has a 36 square meter private pool on a large furnished terrace.

22. Mykonian Ambassador Relais and Chateau

This luxury hotel above Platys Gialos beach must surely win the trophy for the most private pool room configurations – you can have your pools private, shared, heated, unheated, or choose a hot tub!

Myconian Ambassador Hotel Relais & Châteaux, Mykonos Island, Greece
Myconian Ambassador Hotel Relais & Châteaux, Mykonos Island, Greece

True Blue Double Room with Outdoor Hot Tub is 28 sq meters and has an ocean view from its terrace. There is also a True Blue Double Room with Private Pool. The pool is quite lovely with a view over the beach and landscaped trees on one side.

A third True Blue Room has a heated Private Pool and there are several suites with private hot tubs on their furnished terraces.

In addition, there are suites, villas, rooms, and a “private retreat” with private pools, heated and unheated, as well as a few suites with shared pools.

The Myconian Ambassador Relais & Chateaux has what it describes as a “huge” outdoor and it also has a well-regarded spa center that has Pantia treatments, Elemis products, an indoor pool, and a hot tub.


A small beach with lovely green water, only 15 meters long that is almost completely covered in umbrellas and sun loungers! It’s very popular, expensive, and a lot of fun – don’t miss the fireworks when Nammos restaurant holds its parties.

23. Portes Suites & Villas Mykonos

This is an affordable 4-star property with simple, modern fittings. Located between Psarou and Platys Gialos beaches, each of the rooms and suites at Portes Suites and Villas have private pools or outdoor jetted tubs.

Private Pool Villa, Portes Suites and Villas, Mykonos, Greece
Private Pool Villa, Portes Suites and Villas, Mykonos, Greece

The Superior Suite and the Two and Three-Bedroom Villas have private pools that are so large, you can swim laps in them.

The outdoor main pool, bar, and restaurant areas are simple, chic, and relaxing with a focus on super-friendly staff and wonderful breakfasts.

There’s free parking and only a 5-10 minute drive to Mykonos Chora, but there is also an airport and port shuttle bus if you’re not hiring a car.

24. Alissachni Mykonos

Alissachni Mykonos is a new luxury Boutique Hotel with unobstructed views of the Aegean Sea that won the 2021 Honeymoon Hideaway Hotel of the Year Award.

Captivating views of the sea from the private pool at Alissachni Mykonos 

Some suites and rooms feature a private pool, shower, and bathtub with a spectacular sea view. The hotel itself is 300 meters from Psarou Beach and 400 meters from the center of Psarou.

There is only one style of room that doesn’t have a private pool or outdoor jacuzzi. When they say Jacuzzi here, they mean the regular size of a private pool at other hotels!

The views from the restaurant, bar, and terrace are really quite special because they look over the Aegean to Mykonos and several other islands. I think this hotel is really worth a go, there’s just a great feel to it. Check out the photos and see what you think.

25. Grecotel Mykonos Blu

If there was a “best show-off hotel award,” Grecotel Mykonos Blu would win it hands down.

Trip Anthropologist
Royal blue villa private pool at Grecotel Mykonos

Whether it’s the two-level infinity pool, its own private part of Psarou Beach, or its private cave pool suite, this is a very glamorous offering.

This is a spectacular family hotel on a sheltered beach with large villas and all-day snacks.

A large variety of Villas and Suites have private indoor or outdoor pools, and there are a few rooms with outdoor jacuzzis. If you are traveling with a large group of people, there are some very large villas on offer with spectacular private pools.


One of the best and quietest, most secluded beaches on Mykonos. There are bars and taverns but no large beach clubs and while there are private areas, there is also a public area.

The Sacred Island of Delos is right in front of Agios Ioannis.

26. Katikies Mykonos

Katikies Santorini is a knockout but this Leading Hotels of the World Property rivals its sibling.

Katikies Suite, Katikies Mykonos, Mykonos
Magnificent sea views from the private pool in Katikies Mykonos

This 5-star boutique hotel is 500 meters from Agios Ioannis Beach. The furnished terraces extend from the living areas of the rooms and suites and all have private pools or outdoor hot tubs.

The interiors of Katikies Hotels in the Aegean reflect the most beautiful and sometimes the simplest aspects of Cycladic design but with modern 5-star touches. I think of it as minimalist luxe!

What distinguished Katikies Mykonos from other luxury hotels on beautiful Mykonos is the ‘wow’ value of its facilities which include two infinity pools, a spa, a boutique featuring Greek and international designer brands, Botrini’s Mykonos restaurant, Lower and Upper Deck Lounges, and Fleur de Miraval’s Champagne Bar.

27. Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort

The most popular words in the reviews of the Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort are “wow,” “beyond expectations,” and “coming back again.”

Villa private pool at at Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort, Mykonos
Villa private pool at Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort, Mykonos

On the beach at Agios Ioannis, with its own part as a private beach, the Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort, and a very opulent feel.

The resort features a spa, fitness center, and excellent food and champagne, as you’d expect at a first-class resort, but it is that exceptional level of service and the consistency of the high-quality fit-out that gives the hotel a dreamy feel.

Suites, Delux Suites, and Grand Suites all have large private pools, the Premium Rooms have shared pools or indoor jetted hot tubs, and one part of the private pool of the impressive Villa is pictured above.

28. Anax Resort & Spa

The furnished terraces with their blue private pools are the standout feature of the Anax Resort & Spa in Agios Ioannis, although the spa is also highly regarded.

Clear blue private pool from the private room at Anax Resort & Spa, Mykonos

The interior styling of the rooms and suites is low-key Cycladic luxe, the pools and terraces have a ‘wow’ factor that makes staying in easy!

There are 7 rooms and suites with private pools and a Luxury Beachfront Suite with an Outdoor Jetted Tub on the furnished terrace that looks down onto the cove.

Whilst the Anax provides free airport and port transfers, you need your own wheels or to take public transport to get into Mykonos Town.

29. Amazon Mykonos Resort & Spa

This exceptional resort has an average score of 9.9 out of 10 from hundreds of reviewers on Booking.com. That’s almost unheard of!

Trip Anthropologist
Superior Sea View Suite with Infinity Private Pool, Amazon, Mykonos

You get the sense with each of the rooms and suites here that they are floating at the edge of the land, just hanging at the edge beside the sea.

It’s not just the private heated infinity pools, but also the way the rooms are sited and their large windows that deliberately capture the best views.

The Executive Sea View Suite with Private Infinity Pool is THE most romantic suite I have seen in Mykonos.

The prices here are not as eye-watering as at other comparable properties.

Houlakia Bay

North of Mykonos Chora and Port is Houlakia Bay, a lovely short ATV ride away from the main town, and on the way to Armenistis Lighthouse.

30. San Marco, Luxury Hotel and Villas

It’s easy to feel as if you’re on any Greek island other than Mykonos in the private pool of a villa at San Marco at Houlaki Bay. You’re so close to the attractions of Mykonos, but somehow so far away.

Leto Villa, San Marco Luxury Hotel and Villas, Mykonos
Leto Villa, San Marco Luxury Hotel and Villas, Mykonos

Mykonos Town (Chora) is only 4 km away and there’s a complimentary shuttle service (as well as a free airport shuttle) but there’s also free parking and you are directly above a pebbly beach a short away.

There’s a spa and wellness center, a fitness center, and a tennis court to occupy your time. The One and Two-Bedroom Villas have large private pools and the pool in the Two-Bedroom Villa is a sparkling infinity pool.


Looking out toward Naxos Island, Kalo Livadi is next to Elia Beach and is home to Lohan Beach Club and Solymar beach club restaurant.

The beach is long with shallow waters great for families, there’s also a very playful atmosphere with lots of water sports on offer as well as a seemingly endless string of beach clubs, bars, and tavernas.

31. Salty Houses

Touted as affordable private pool villas or suites in expensive Mykonos, Salty Houses offers two suites with private pools.

Superior Apartment with Private Pool, Salty Houses, Mykonos
Superior Apartment with Private Pool, Salty Houses, Mykonos

The Superior Apartment with Private Pool is made of island stone and is a romantic retreat. The rooms are curved with simple furnishings often built into the apartment.

The organic forms extend to the private terrace where there is a large private pool with sea views.

The Grande House with Private Pool is suitable for up to five adults and is a wonderful family home away from home with a fireplace, an outdoor pizza oven and mini-kitchen, terraces, and a large private pool that extends to the edge of the property overlooking the sapphire blue Aegean Sea.

32. Mykonos Bliss – Cozy Suites

Mykonos Bliss is an Adults-Only hotel that looks down upon Kalo Livadi Beach and Bay and out to sea.

Mykonos Bliss has won Greece’s Hotel of the Year Award several times. Its focus on cuisine is a large part of its success.

This modern hotel claims to have an infinity pool that is unrivaled in Mykonos and describes itself as “barefoot luxury,” in part because it is made of local stone and natural materials.

The Honeymoon Bliss and Ultimate Bliss Suites have a private swimming pool with sunbeds and magnificent sea views. The Premium Jacuzzi Suites have high-tech jacuzzis on their verandahs.

33. Sea Side Studios & Houses

A wonderfully rustic yet somehow luxurious budget option in the private pool hotel market of Mykonos is extraordinarily rare, but Sea Side Houses & Studios is that option.

Sea Side Studios and Homes are only 30 meters from Kalo Livadi Beach. There are bikes to rent, a free airport shuttle, large three and four-room villas for families, and a lengthy list of massage services.

All of the suites, Rooms, and Villas with the exception of a few Studios have large jetted outdoor hot tubs on their private terraces and they are all very highly reviewed.


Agios Stefanos is the beach next to the New Port, Tourlos, 3 kilometers from the Old Port and Mykonos Town. It has a great view of Delos Island.

Agios Stefanos is a lovely beach because of the fine white sand and also because it is a well-organized/equipped beach, but still relaxed and with a few tavernas and sunbeds that can be rented more cheaply than those on the beaches to the south.

34. Mykonos Soul Luxury Suites

Ultra luxury and contemporary chic private pool suites at Mykonos Soul Luxury Suites

This highly rated and luxurious hotel is an Adults-Only property, 200 meters from Anastasia Beach and 600 meters from popular Agios Stefanos Beach.

The high level of styling evident in the marble and stone pool areas extends into the Junior, Deluxe, and Honeymoon Pool Suites with their natural materials and well-designed private pools framing stunning sea views.

There are 5 private pool suites on the ground floor and a further two on the first floor. Private hot tubs are an alternative to the private pools in the Junior Jacuzzi suites.


Confusingly, there are two Agia Anna beaches on Mykonos, not far from each other. The Agia Anna beach I mean here is next to Kalafatis and is one of the least developed and busy on the island (but of course still has lots of sun loungers and umbrellas).

35. The Wild Hotel by Interni

Only a three-minute walk from Agia Anna Beach is the chic resort with a private beach. One of the two outside swimming pools is an insanely long infinity pool overlooking the sea.

The two-bedroom villas at The Wild have private plunge pools with glorious glass tiles in colors of the sea and are set into the terrace that comes off the main bedroom.

The villas accommodate up to three children and pets are welcome. There’s a cafe, poolside bar, taverna, and room service. In addition to the private beach, these amenities make this a great stay for families as well as couples.
