The tiny island of Mykonos has built up quite the reputation as Greece’s ‘designer island.’ This whitewashed island is now known for its beautiful beaches, spectacular sunsets, and luxurious hotels. If you’re looking for a place to stay right on the beach, Mykonos is the perfect destination. There are boutique hotels, independent dwellings, as well as 5-star resorts. We’ll show you the most exceptional rooms for families and couples. Here, we’ve rounded up the best luxury Mykonos hotels on the beach.

1. Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort 

Cobbled paths lead guests to the uber-stylish rooms and suites. Inside, a Mykonian arch separates the bedroom and sitting area. Whilst bathrooms have a freestanding tub and rain shower. Outdoors, there’s a swimming pool and decking area with cabanas and a hot tub.  There’s also a serviced beach with complimentary loungers and parasols for guests. Exquisite dining includes modern Greek dishes at Nama restaurant or romantic private tables on the beach by a bonfire. We recommend a tipple or two at Bollar Bar where you’ll find a great drink selection including an extensive range of martinis.

4. Anax Resort and Spa 

When we think of Mykonos we think of all the glitz and glamour. Well, the Anax Resort describes itself as a flawless example of laid-back yet luxury island life. ‘This isn’t Mykonos as you know it.’ True to their word, this property is a little oasis of calm within the cosmopolitan atoll.  Pristine rooms are bright and spacious, with balconies that offer sublime views of the sea. Some come with their own private pools: we recommend the Anax Two Bedroom suite. There’s an onsite restaurant and two sunset bars. The Anasa Spa is a further bubble of calm within where guests can expect much more than simply pampering. Other facilities include a private beach area, infinity pool, hot tub, and gym.

9. The Wild by Interni 

‘Simple, raw, beautiful and wild’… we love the concept of this sun-kissed cliffside property. Clean and uncluttered spaces are complemented by white linens, bamboo furniture, and blonde wood. But the highlight is perhaps the awesome views of Aegean, visible from almost everywhere. All of the suites are individually decorated with high-end furniture and artisanal accessories. We would recommend The Wild Two Bedroom Villa which boasts its own terrace with a private pool. The main swimming pool overlooks the sea, and there’s also a private beach with stylish sunbeds. When it comes to eating, the Taverna is simple and unpretentious and offers a contemporary, traditional mix. Think Myconian cheeses, handmade phyllo, fresh vegetables, and fish, all sourced locally. Other facilities include an open-air gym and a small spa that specializes in customized therapies.

10. Kivotos Mykonos 

The Kivotos Mykonos is perhaps one of the most famous boutique hotels on Mykonos. There’s little wonder that this family-run property is an island favorite thanks to its artistic style and personalized service. Set out like a Myconian village, rooms are dotted down a rocky hillside that leads toward a private beach. Each is unique, but all are truly aesthetically pleasing. You’ll find one-of-a-kind antiques and commissioned artwork inside. Outside, there are two outdoor pools, one of which has a swim-up bar. Three restaurants offer guests lots of choices including fine and scenic dining at Nero. For something a little more special, you can also dine onboard the hotel’s yacht, or privately on the beach.

11. Aegon Mykonos 

The Aegon Mykonos has two different compounds that guests choose dependent on their mood. Will you choose Revive, the premises on the beachfront of Kalo Livadi?

Most offer sea views, whilst some have direct beach access, private pools, and hot tubs. You’ll have access to three F&B venues including a sushi bar and casual restaurant serving modern Greek creations.
