There just a few places in the world that can offer a luxurious way of living suitable for a king or a queen. Among them, the beautiful tiny island of Mykonos shines under the bright warming Greek sun in the middle of the deep blue Aegean Sea.
Mykonos island started becoming famous to the world at the early 60’s, when famous international actors and celebrities discovered the amazing beauties of the island and started spending their vacations here. Over the last decades, Mykonos tourist infrastructures developed towards a lavish way of living with services and amenities that can satisfy a royal visitor.
Amazing luxury villas
Luxury villas are everywhere on Mykonos island. They come in all sizes and styles and they offer a big variety of amenities. The bigger ones can sleep up to 30-35 people. The decoration varies from traditional Cycladic to artistic or modern but they all include expensive furniture and pieces of art. Some of them have unique decorations – for example, a huge rocky formation in one corner of the living room.
Mykonos villas usually have one or more swimming pools, Jacuzzis, gardens with BBQ, indoor and outdoor dining spaces. Some of them even have their own heliport for their guests to travel in the most convenient way. You can find villas in Mykonos with their own private chapel, specially designed to host weddings and other ceremonies.
To live like a king you certainly need a well trained staff. Besides the ordinary room maid or cleaning lady, you can arrange to have a battler, a chauffeur, a private chef with his team or a body guard.
Acquiring your private villa for a lifetime though is the best thing you can do, especially if you are a Mykonos habitué, search for the Real Estate in Mykonos.

Concierge services in Mykonos have reached a very high quality level. There are specific agencies on the island that can arrange all the details of your special, dreamlike vacations. They can arrange your transportations with limousines, your daily excursions with lavish yachts, your VIP access to the most famous clubs of Mykonos or they can organize your private party or event.
For every wish you can make, there is a big number of experienced assistants that will work hard to fulfill it.
Mykonos beaches: small pieces of paradise on Earth
Mykonos island has a lot of public beaches where you can spend your day swimming and sunbathing. There are also some private beaches that belong to hotels, resorts or villas. Most of the beaches are covered with soft, golden sand but you can find also some rocky or pebbled ones. All of them have the most crystal clear waters. You can choose the beach that better represents Paradise to you, according to your needs and likes:
- For a lazy day of relaxation next to the sea, you can visit one of the lounge beaches like Platis Gialos, Kalafatis, Ornos or Agios Ioannis. They are well organized and offer a lot of amenities and services.
- For having fun with parties, events and rituals, choose one of the beaches where the most famous clubs are located, like Super Paradise, Paradise and Psarou. In the morning they look like normal lounge beaches with music coming from bars and day resorts. Early in the evening, the music turns louder and people start dancing everywhere. By night the whole beach becomes a big club where you can experience the famous Mykonian nightlife.
- If you like water sports, you can try Elia, Agrari, Kalo Livadi and Kalafatis beaches. Ftelia beach is a wind surfers’ paradise, as strong winds blow almost permanently here.
- For those who seek nature’s wild beauty, there are also some virgin beaches in Mykonos, with very few to zero facilities, like Fokos, Kapari or Houlakia beaches.
Royal gourmet dining
Fine dining has become a true science in Mykonos. Well known international and Greek chefs spend their summer in the island’s most famous restaurants, preparing unique, delicious dishes for their guests. They offer exclusive menus, long wine lists, perfect services and a wonderful, elegant environment to enjoy your dinner.
Fish, seafood, fruits and vegetables are locally collected and always fresh. Exotic or rare ingredients are brought here from distant countries to give a specific touch to a dish. Traditional recipes mix with the latest trends in the most creative ways to offer guests a royal gourmet experience.
You can find a lot of Greek and Mediterranean gourmet restaurants, like M-eating, Alemagou, Rakkan, Pasaji, Nammos and Hippie Fish. But there are also some Asian gourmet restaurants like Nobu Matsuhisa at Belvedere Hotel, Ling Ling by Hakkasan or Kiku at Cavo Tagoo Hotel.
Some of these gourmet restaurants offer a private dining option but you must book in time.
For even more privacy and luxury, you can have a gourmet dinner at your own villa, with your own guests. A private chef will prepare the ideal menu for your taste and suggest the perfect wine to accompany it.
