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.

As its name suggests, the Zen Room is an ideal spot to hang up your everyday stresses and reconnect with your inner harmony. While no views are on offer in this room, the traditional construction materials provide a unique, white-washed interior, and soft wooden accents bring a touch of comfort and warmth to space.
You’ll find yourself in a state of pure relaxation as you watch the sunset from your private Jacuzzi on the outdoor terrace. Minimalist décor allows the focus to remain on calming scenes of the surrounding mountains or ocean and handpicked furniture embraces the simplicity of life in paradise.
Stepping out of bed and straight into your idyllic plunge pool will be an experience you won’t soon forget. Clean architectural lines and touches of supreme comfort featured throughout the room quickly quiet your mind. Yet, the expansive outdoor area is sure to excite your inner child for the day ahead.
Truly relax from sunrise to sunset on your generous outdoor terrace, complete with an outdoor hot tub and breakfast nook. Heading inside, quaint lines and unique light fixtures divide the open space between bedroom and bathroom, and impressive wooden architecture set a tranquil mood.
A spacious flowing room complete with a private pool and sophisticated outdoor area brings together pure positivity and relaxation. A Yoda chair placed perfectly overlooking your pool and mountain landscapes allows for relaxing afternoons, and vertical wooden blinds provide a sense of security and separation from the bathroom.
Every detail embraces the panoramic scenery in this modern and minimalist suite. A fixed bed with premium ocean views leaves you waking up in serenity, and thoughtful wooden architecture allows for unique takes on classic hotel amenities. Your trip highlight may well be sipping coffee on your wooden patio overlooking Ornos Bay.
