Kings of Mykonos at Kouros Hotel & Suites

Our boutique hotel in Mykonos had the fantastic opportunity to accommodate 2 of the biggest Australian movie stars for the premiere of the movie "Kings of Mykonos".
Nick Giannopoulos and Vince Colosimo stayed with us this weekend for the official Greek premiere of the movie in Mykonos. Our guests had the chance to get photographed with them and get autographs, and we had the pleasure to interact with people that love our island and promote it worldwide.
This is the official movie poster with Zeta Makrypoulia, a Greek godess / actor staring in the hit movie of 2010.
Here is Mr. Giannopoulos and Mr. Colosimo being interviewed in our hotel by reporters for the Greek premiere. Our pool with our fantastic Mykonos town view and the Aegean Sea was the perfect location for their interview!

So... what does Kouros stand for??

Have you ever wondered what our hotel's name stands for?

So here is the story behind Kouros Hotel in Mykonos...

According to Wikipedia:

A kouros (plural kouroi, Ancient Greek κοῦρος) is the modern term given to those representations of male youths which first appear in the Archaic period in Greece. The term kouros, meaning (male) youth, was first proposed for what were previously thought to be depictions of Apollo by V. I. Leonardos in 1895 in relation to the youth from Keratea,and adopted by Lechat as a generic term for the standing male figure in 1904. Such statues are found across the Greek-speaking world, the preponderance of these were found in sanctuaries of Apollo with more than one hundred from the sanctuary of Apollo Ptoios, Boeotia, alone. These free-standing sculptures were typically marble, but also the form is rendered in limestone, wood, bronze, ivory and terracotta.

This essense and history of the Kouros statue is translated to our boutique hotel in Mykonos with the simple and clean design approach and the freshness of youth and elegance in our premises.

Our fabulous verandas from each and every Kouros hotel room overlooking the Aegean have a direct view of Delos island, a sacred place where many Kouros statues where found.

How to get to Mykonos

I know everyone is always unsure on how to get to Mykonos so here is a sum up guide we think can help you.

Before booking your tickets make sure first to check on charter flights coming straight to Mykonos from London, Rome, Paris or Zurich. Those charter flights are definately better priced than getting a flight to Athens and then switching into a flight for Mykonos. From time to time there are more destinations you can get a charter flight from, but it is better if you consult a travel agent for specific details.

For those getting flights to Athens (ATH) you can connect with another flight to Mykonos (JMK) which is just 20 minutes flight and here are the companies that do that and that you can book directly to them your flight:

Another way to get here from Athens instead of taking the plane is by boat. In Greece, this is a very frequent choice of transportation since there is a much fair than the airplanes.
In Athens we have TWO ports: PIRAEUS and RAFINA both reachable from the airport.


From the airport you take the metro and change to a train (just by using one ticket) and you reach directly the port it is about 45 minute ride in total. Or you take the express bus that is about 3,5-4 euro that takes about 40minutes or less depending on the hour you are travelling. Or of course you could get a taxi with a fare approximately around 40-50 euro.

There are two types of boats that get to Mykonos. Simple boat that takes 5,5 hours and costs about 20-25euro. High speed boat that takes 4 hours and costs about 40-45 euro.


From the airport I there are buses that can take you to Rafina port, or you take a taxi which is approximately a 30 minute ride to the port and costs about 30-40 euro.

There are two types of boats that get to Mykonos.Simple boat that takes 4,5 hours and costs about 18-25euro. High speed boat that takes 2.5 hours and costs about 35-45 euro. Boat companies that work for both ports and you can book online are:
