Myconian Ambassador Hotel
History & Story
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. There is something about a family business, and its unique synthesis of heritage, loyalty and emotion, that captures the essence of luxury and accounts for the strength of some of the world’s great portfolios. This quality is at the heart of the Myconian Collection’s success. Built in 1992, the Myconian Ambassador, was the very first luxury establishment of its kind on the island and was award edits five stars immediately on opening.
The Myconian Ambassador underwent a transformation in 2015under the guidance of international architect Galal Mahmoud, President of GM Architects, and recipient in the same year of the prestigious Architectural Review MIPIM Future Projects Award in Cannes for his “Museum of Civilizations”.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
The Ambassador is a luxury hotel in Mykonos, capturing the essence of Myconian charm and the celebrated ‘art de vivre’ of Relais & Châteaux. Mere steps from the fine sand of Platis Gialos, and built in sympathy with the slope, its architecture blends contemporary chic with tones and textures borrowed from the local vernacular. Interiors that embody the clean line and cool sophistication of high design flow into the quiet comfort of luxurious bedrooms, or spill out onto the spectacular terrace that is the heart of the hotel, all without ever breaking the spell of magnificent Aegean views.
The Myconian Ambassador is situated just above Platis Gialos beach on the south coast of the island, renowned for its crystal water and fine sands. The famous beaches of cosmopolitan Psarou, picturesque Paranga and Agia Anna are within easy walking distance. The idyllic calm of Platis Gialos bay belies its proximity to Chora – also known as Mykonos Town – a mere five kilometres (three miles) from the Ambassador.
