Myconian Korali Relais & Chateaux
Lifestyle luxury with views of Mykonos Town
Perched on the hills above the historic harbour, it is a coveted haven minutes away from the cafés of Little Venice, boutiques, tavernas and famously alluring nightlife of Mykonos Town. The elegance of simple lines, espoused in both architectural structure and detailing, lends added impact to the vibrant touches of signature yellow and touches of red and orange that will get your first three chakras humming.
Its contemporary spaces come alive with the best of international design that lends an unmistakeable air of sophistication to complement the gracious hospitality, haute cuisine and exceptional views which celebrate the ethos of excellence and savoir faire that defines a Relais & Châteaux retreat.

Food and Drink
Executive chef Panagiotis Tsoukatos is passionate about the Relais & Châteaux philosophy that marries the art of haute cuisine to the farm-to-table sourcing of the finest seasonal and local ingredients and guides everything that comes of his kitchen.
‘The emphasis is on interpreting Greek cuisine with a contemporary twist. We promote the flavours of our homeland. The menu specialises in seafood, and every lunch or dinner is a celebration of the senses’.
His cooking preserves pure flavours. ‘I want you to taste everything that went into the dish. I do not believe in the kind of complexity that overpowers what you are eating. I will take a piece of lamb or fish, cook it to perfection and then perhaps glaze it a little; and I will garnish it with fresh aromatic herbs, but the original flavours will remain distinct.’ When Panagiotis isn’t cooking, he travels widely in search of new gastronomic experiences.
Our meticulous sourcing of the freshest seasonal ingredients and organic produce, as well as local catch and farm-reared poultry and meat, is a matter of conviction. As a Myconian family, cuisine and service remain at the very heart of our sense of hospitality, and our long-standing ties to local farmers and fishermen ensures a supply of the freshest seasonal ingredients and organic produce, some of which is also produced on our family land. We aim uncompromisingly high, because as food connoisseurs, we know all about the importance of placing the highest quality ingredients at our chefs’ disposal.
As a guest of the Myconian Collection, you are also at liberty to choose from any of the group’s finest restaurants. Just ask your concierge to make a reservation at any of our resorts and you will be given a warm family welcome!
Mornings at Korali redefine breakfast luxury with gourmet suggestions that surpass expectations in terms of quality, variety and presentation. In addition to a flow of champagne, fresh coffee and juice, eggs made-to-order, bread and patisserie still warm from the oven, homemade preserves, wild honey and all manner of cereals, nuts and fresh fruit, you will find local delicacies and international buffet classics.
Baos Fine Dining
The legendary Relais & Châteaux gastronomic experience is interpreted with international finesse and sophistication at Baos Fine Dining. Local ingredients grown exclusively for Korali are integral to our seasonal menus, enhanced by the passion of our chef for regional flavours and flair for innovation. Using molecular and fusion techniques, he creates dishes that taste even more spectacular than they look. And for those who want to taste the freshest catch and finest produce in their pure form, exceptional sushi is prepared by our resident itamae chef who is a pleasure to watch as he wields his sashimi knife with surgical precision and seemingly effortless ease.
The exceptional experience in fine dining at Baos is almost outdone by the setting, poised on a hillside that slopes gently towards the windmills of Little Venice, with sweeping views of the sea to the horizon line.
Kitrino is situated on our beautiful deck, one of the most glamorous mingling spots on Mykonos, ‘bar none’ as they say. The magnificent view reflected by mirrored wall details creates a sense of being surround by glittering fragments of sea and sky – a spellbinding experience at sunset. Friendly, accomplished service offers light snacks and shareable delights along with smoothies and refreshments by day, moving onto signature cocktails and aperitifs. As the bar and deck light up in their seductive evening guise, the celebratory after-dark atmosphere moves into full swing against the shimmer of golden lights from Mykonos town and the island’s magic comes into its own.
Add to the restorative benefits of the Aegean’s ionized sea air, saltwater and sun by taking your well-being to the next level at our spas, where therapeutic pools, steam rooms, exclusive products and treatments by expert therapists await.
Just consider our spas a destination; a world that moves to serene rhythms of rejuvenation, where the social-media overload seems absurd and even the island’s sun and crystal blue waters lose their allure for a moment, in the pursuit of wellness.
Discover the serene ambience of our state-of-the-art facilities with spacious therapy rooms, heated indoor pools, steam baths and a hammam, as well as our therapeutic Thalasso pools with different temperatures and salinity contents that have salutary effects on joints and back problems, arthritis, osteoporosis and water retention.
Classic spa treatments, personalised to suit your needs, are complemented by a range of holistic therapies. Our expert therapists use two specialised product ranges:
Elemis – the leading professional British Spa and therapeutic Skincare science, available only at the most exclusive spas around the world, renowned for exceptional dynamically active, anti-ageing ingredients and effective massage sequences. Elemis is favored by as many as 6.5 million luxury spa-goers per year. The combination of natural active ingredients with pioneering technology has enabled Elemis to develop revolutionary anti-ageing products and offer therapies that embrace the ever-changing needs of today’s lifestyle.
St. Barth – the highly sought-after line from the Caribbean, is equally praised by beauty professionals worldwide for its originality and the exceptional quality of its entirely natural floral blends. The cosmetic laboratory of Ligne St. Barth, is located on St. Barthelemy, one of the most beautiful islands of the Caribbean. Owned and run by the Brin family whose French ancestors settled there in the 17th century, the laboratory combines generations of expert knowledge with Caribbean traditions and modern technology to provide elixirs blended exclusively from natural products.
Korali enjoys an exceptional position, a short stroll away from the stone steps of the historical harbour below the windmills, leading down to Little Venice and the most picturesque part of Mykonos. The views onto its white profile outlined against the blue Aegean from our pool deck, private balconies and the Baos balcony, are unforgettably iconic. This proximity to the town’s bustling maze of narrow alleys, booming with hip bars and acclaimed restaurants, makes Korali an ideal destination for guests seeking to combine the sophisticated Myconian nightlife with the elegant luxury of a Relais & Chateaux. The nearby complement of local craft and high-end boutiques, including Chanel, Burberry, and Louis Vuitton, are part of the eclectic mix. As are the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Folklore Museum, perfect for those seeking a nostalgic overview of Mykonos’ rich seafaring and cultural history.
To experience the island’s legendary club life, take a short journey off the coastal route or by boat to Cavo Paradiso (2 km away) or Super Paradise, slightly further afield. The party migrates from sun-drenched beach bars to open-air nightclubs pumping with all-night energy. A complimentary shuttle service is available to run guests of the Myconian Collection to our other hotels.
Ferries to the famous ruins of Delos, one of the most important mythological and archaeological sites in the Mediterranean, depart from the town harbour. Alternatively, you may choose to explore the neighbouring desert island of Rhenia or the hidden coves of Mykonos by private launch.
Please note that for all bookings made directly on the hotel’s official website, we offer complimentary transfers to and from the Mykonos seaport or airport in air-conditioned mini-buses.
