Kouros Hotel & Suites

Serenity in Mykonos

Less than 1,000 feet from the swarming narrow streets of Mykonos Town, you will find a calm escape at Kouros Hotel & Suites. The whitewashed Cycladic building clings onto the side of a cliff so you can get a glimpse of the Aegean Sea whether you’re enjoying traditional loukoumi sweets and lemon water in the lobby while looking through the telescope at the big-picture windows, sipping bubbly on the champagne deck or cooling off with cocktails in the infinity pool.

All 40 rooms in the boutique hotel also overlook the water. In 2022, Kouros debuted newly renovated suites and villas from French designer Fabienne Spahn. She punctuated the white spaces with pops of black to lend a more contemporary feel, plus white marble covers the floor and black marble lines the vast shower. Another incentive to stay in these spacious suites: they come with complimentary room service breakfast, which is much-needed after partaking in the island’s party-until-the-sun-comes-up nightlife.

If you need more recovery, spend time in the hotel’s relaxing spa, order delicious modern Greek fare at the restaurant and then lounge by the sparkling infinity pool, where the bar will ply you with fruity strawberry Aperol spritzes as you bask in the sunshine.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Soak up vistas of the Aegean Sea and the new marina from the infinity pool and the cushy loungers lining it. It’s the best spot on the property to catch Mykonos’ blazing sunsets.
  • All-day poolside restaurant Narcissus also affords prime sunset viewing. Another reason to visit: the small but well-curated menu of delicious dishes. Lunch brings fare like pita with spreads, like tarama (a dip made of roe), hummus, baba ghanoush and gorgonzola tzatziki, and a Greek salad loaded with red and green grape tomatoes. At dinner, the juicy tenderloin comes with pureed potatoes that are mixed tableside with egg yolk and Parmesan for a rich touch.
  • Don’t bypass drinks at the restaurant and adjacent bar. We enjoyed the Tulum Raider, which manages to be smoky and sweet (thanks to mezcal, tequila blanco, Aperol, fresh lime juice and pineapple). But you can also try some Greek wines and spirits, like mastiha, an anise-flavored liqueur.
  • The boutique hotel boasts an excellent location. It’s a 10-minute walk from Mykonos Town, Little Venice and the windmills, all of which rank among the island’s most popular attractions. Yet it’s far enough to be away from the fray.
  • Every accommodation comes with a water view and a balcony or terrace. Book a suite with a pool or a Jacuzzi so you can see the waves while swimming or soaking.

Things to Know

  • The seasonal Mykonos hotel opens from May to October.
  • Rejuvenate at Zoe Spa. Using products from KOS Paris and Greek brand Juliette Armand, the small, tranquil facility provides a treatment room for massages, scrubs and facials, and another room for manicures and pedicures. There’s also a hydrotherapy area with a hammam and hot tub that’s open to all hotel guests with advance sign-up.
  • The best way to rent a car is to do it through the helpful concierges (the hotel partners with a local rental agency). Kouros offers complimentary guest parking, too.
