Everything you can find in Mykonos you will find it in extremely high quality and big quantities. Mykonos is the place where you can live in absolute luxury and you and your beloved ones can be treated like kings or queens. All you need is some money and the knowledge where to spend it.

1. Luxurious lifestyle – accommodation / concierge services

For the most lavish accommodation pick a five star hotel or one of the magnificent Villas in Mykonos Island. They both offer a stylish environment, high quality services and all the amenities you may think of. The only difference between them is that hotels usually offer a lot of useful venues within their facilities – like restaurants, spas or shops – while Mykonos Villas offer more privacy and space.

Mykonos’ concierge services will cover any visitor’s needs. You can rent a private yacht with a crew or a limousine with a driver, you can organize your own party, and you can book VIP tickets at your favorite night clubs or a table at a top gourmet restaurant. Anything you will need, the experienced staff will find a way to provide you without you having to spend time and energy to search around.
