The Myconian Ambassador

Last June, The Myconian Ambassador, a favorite of the jetset on the Greek isle of Myconos, had a complete refurbishment by GM Architects, the famed Lebanese design studio. All public areas, suites and 69 guest rooms were redesigned in a contemporary style with premium materials like Thassos marble and tropical hardwoods.

Taking inspiration from the history of the Cyclades and Greek culture, Galal Mahmoud—founder of GM Architects—chose “airiness” as the design concept; opening up the hotel’s spacious interiors with mirrors and windows, and using a classic Greek color palette of whites and royal blue.

In the lobby, large blocks of marble were carved into the reception desks, reminiscent of Greece’s classical period, just as the walls were replastered to conjure the drapery of those classical statues. Guests are also struck by the continuity between interior and exterior spaces, playing up the hotel’s endless sea views.

Overlooking the famous Platis Gialos beach, the Myconian Ambassador is not far from the town of Mykonos. Home to the Thalasso Spa and the excellent Efisia restaurant, the hotel has been a member of Relais & Châteaux since 1992.
