Nestled beautifully between charming beaches on the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos, you’ll find Kensho Ornos, a sophisticated sanctuary to reward your senses

As soon as you’re welcomed into the lobby of Kensho Ornos, a sense of peacefulness immediately washes over you. Cycladic influences are apparent with white-washed walls, natural stone and weathered wood on display. However, pulling your gaze back outside are the unmated sea views of Ornos Bay.

The traditional architecture throughout the hotel blends nature with luxury and encourages harmony between indoor and outdoor spaces. Besides the Zen Rooms, which focus on inner peace and quietness, each of Kensho Orno’s 35 rooms features stunning sea or mountain vistas. Time seems to vanish as you soak in your private jacuzzi or plunge pool and watch the sunset colours give way to star-filled evenings.

When you’re ready to venture out, a quick chat with the 24-hour concierge service will provide you with local secrets to make the most of your time on the bustling island of Mykonos. Cosy cafes, energetic beach clubs and unique shops await just beyond the hotel’s walls; however, by night, you’ll be back sipping refreshing cocktails on the oversized rooftop jacuzzi.

We had an amazing stay at Kensho. Breakfast was amazing, diner awesome, slept like babies in the very comfortable beds, enjoyed the private jaccuzzi and hotel's pool with the view on the sea and the spa in the cave, the personal was extremely nice... free transfer to the airport or to city center could be a plus

I haven't checked out yet, but so far, this experience has been one of the best we've ever had. From the second you walk in, you're greeted by welcoming smiles and introduced to the entire team. The hotel is beautifully designed with each and every single detail taken into consideration. We were luckily upgraded to a gorgeous room with a private pool which was the cherry on top. Their breakfast, the views, the serenity of the hotel; everything has been perfect! t's on a slight hilltop overlooking Ornos which was perfect as it gave it a more secluded feel. I would definitely visit again.

Kensho Ornos was a dream! We just returned from our honeymoon there and are already talking about returning as soon as possible. Every single member of the staff was outstanding - kind, thoughtful, and incredibly helpful with everything from beach club & restaurant recommendations to transportation needs. The breakfast was truly the best we've ever had - the french toast, sweet dough, and omelettes were our personal favorites, but truly everything was delicious! We did the tasting menu for dinner at their restaurant and it was outstanding from start to finish. We also did a spa experience that was simply amazing. The service all around was perfection. Look no further than Kensho Ornos - they really are the best of the best!

Small boutique hotel with stellar staff from top to bottom, and outstanding service! The attention to detail, cleanliness, and special touches like chocolates on our turned bed each evening made the stay so special. The massage in the spa and cave were cool. The breakfast delicious (and Miss Nancy so sweet!). Great location, close-by to Little Venice and Mykonos Town, but a quiet retreat from the crowds and chaos. Nice pool and lounge areas. Great view of the water and all the boats, a quick walk to Ornos Beach and nice restaurants. The jacuzzi in our room didn’t get very hot and smelled a little weird, but other than that everything was perfect. Would recommend!

We weren't guest at the hotel but decided to eat at their restaurant. For starters, the place is very beautiful and you can enjoy the sunset on the hotel's rooftop. The staff welcomed us with a warm smile and made us feel instanty comfortable. As per the food, it was an amazing dining experience with lots of variety. Our waiter was Lefteris and helped us choose the food and gave some information on our choices. He suggested we shared the appetizers in order to taste as much as possible. We started with homemade pita bread, kalamari, aubergine salad, and baby potatos. We were shocked at how fresh and tasteful everything was. We continued with their version of cacio e pepe and the short rib as our main courses, and we finished with most delicious dessert, the 'Paris Breast'. To sum it up, we had a great experience and we would most definately recommend it for a dinner date. Many thanks to the whole staff that made us feel comfortable with their welcoming atmoshpere, and special thanks to our waiter, Lefteris, for his help and recommendations that made our experience unique.

This place is absolutely fantastic. The staff is friendly and overly accommodating. I truly enjoyed each encounter I had. The breakfast is phenomenal and cooked to order. The room is beautiful. They remake your room each day and will turn your bed down in the evening. When you arrive, they give you a drink, a clean wet towel to wash your hands from your travel, and a quick shoulder massage. They treat you like royalty. Nancy, Paris, Nick, Nick, Giorgos, and Antonius are the ones I can remember, but honestly, they are all great. Thank you for exceeding all expectations and for making our trip so much better than expected. We wish we could have stayed longer.
It was like a dream. It was a surprise trip from my boyfriend and we spend in kensho hotel great moments of relaxation at the spa and we ate good food. We tried most of the dishes and the cave experience as well as the muscular relief massage and some facial treatments. Great people and great facilities. Also the room with the jacuzzi was so stunning!
Beautiful hotel with the most polite staff ever! Also very nice restaurant with a big selection of cigars paired with spirits! A paradise for a cigar aficionado!!
