The Myconian K Hotels were the first accomplishment of George P. Daktylides, who in 1979 realized a lifelong dream, the opening of Kohili, a superior luxury hotel in Mykonos town. A year later Korali, another superior hotel was built right next to Kohili, while in 1984 two more luxury hotels, Kyma and Kalypso, completed the innovative Myconian K Hotels project. With a total of 160 rooms, the Myconian K Hotels were among the first Mykonos resorts to offer genuine island hospitality combined with authentic Mediterranean cuisine and bespoke services.
A decade later, realizing the increasing demand for up-scale leisure and luxury hotel options, G. Daktylides embarked on the development of an exclusive resort, the Myconian Ambassador Hotel on Platis Gialos beach. This was followed in 2002 by the Myconian Imperial Resort and the Royal Myconian Resort located on the cliffs above famed Elia Beach, which were later joined by the Myconian Villa Collection and the recently completed Myconian Utopia Resort, all offering exceptional accommodations and outstanding vacation experiences. A new luxury resort is scheduled to join the Myconian Collection in 2014.
Today, the group is run by G. Daktylides’s four sons, all educated at the Les Roches International School of Hotel Management, who brought new impetus to the business while carrying on the family’s passion for hospitality and love for the island of Mykonos.
