George Daktylides had big dreams. It started when, while working as a bus driver, he convinced his brothers to invest in a vehicle. Before long the fleet had expanded to 25 buses and became the island’s only public transport network. The need for more hospitality on the island led to George’s next venture - a hotel. He dug the foundations of his first hotel, the Kohili, himself. The destination was an instant hit. Every property he’s opened since has followed suit.
The hotel today
Myconian Villas opened in 2012. Nestled into the hillside above Elia Bay, it displays Mykonos in all its beauty. Leaning into the mountain, the terraced villas have uninterrupted views of the Aegean, culminating in a 360-degree panorama on the vast entertainment deck with its cool bar, epicurean restaurant and saltwater infinity pool.
Unlock the joys of Greek relaxation. Comfortable yet incredibly chic, with raw-wood accents and custom-crafted fabrics to add pops of colour, each guest room has its own take on idyllic. Open sea-facing doors onto your private balcony and feel the cool breeze of the Aegean as you drink your morning coffee or dine alfresco in the evening.
Myconian Villa Collection has an exclusive section of Elia Bay, complete with sun loungers and a bar, so you can ease into relaxation by the lapping waves of the Aegean Sea.
