Boheme Mykonos – Boutique, luxury hotel near the beach and town with a sea-view pool, outdoor massage cabana, and fantastic dining and drinks.
Boheme Mykonos is an outstanding all-suite hotel with sunset sea views from every suite and throughout the property. Luxury facilities include a kidney-shaped infinity pool, outdoor jacuzzi, and open-air massage and yoga; in-suite perks include pillow menus, Marshall speakers, and espresso machines. Food and drinks are outstanding at the on-site Basilico Restaurant and Bilo Bar. Basilico offers a local, seasonal menu of Greek and Mykonian recipes, while Bilo Bar mixes creative cocktails alongside its well-curated menu of champagne, wine, and beer, featuring the best of Greek and international labels. Catering mostly to couples, this hotel is open to guests over 13 years only.
Boheme Mykonos – Location
- Area: Boheme Mykonos sits on a hill above Megali Ammos Beach, at the edge of Mykonos Town, and about a 10 to 15-minute walk from the nightlife, dining, and shopping that has made Mykonos famous. The landmark Kato Mili windmills and the Old Port are accessible within 10 and 12 minutes’ walk, respectively. The bus stop at Fabrika is only 6 minutes’ walk away, making it a breeze to reach the island’s best beaches, the airport, and the ferry port at Tourlos.
- How to Get There: The hotel is located just off the main road connecting Mykonos Town to the airport and southern beaches, making it very easy to reach by bus, taxi, or driving yourself. It is approximately 5km from the Mykonos ferry port in Tourlos, and 3km from the Mykonos Airport to the hotel.
To reach the hotel by bus, take the Fabrika-bound bus from the Airport or the Tourlos Ferry Port (AKA “The New Port”). These airport and ferry port routes run several times a day throughout the summer but infrequently (if at all) in the winter. Fabrika, in Mykonos Town, is the closest bus stop to the hotel, just a 6-minute walk (450m) away. The bus from the Airport to Fabrika takes about 15 minutes, while the bus from the New Port to Fabrika takes just under 20 minutes. Both trips cost about €2; tickets are purchased on the bus or from a manned kiosk at the terminal, in cash only. The walk from Fabrika to Boheme Mykonos is on a mostly uphill route, though the street is narrow and there is some traffic.
Taxis are also available from the port or airport, though there are only about 30 taxis serving the whole island, so there is often a long wait; schedule a ride through a private car service in advance to avoid this (I use and recommend Welcome Pickups). Taxis on Mykonos are not metered, so be sure to agree on a price with the driver before setting out. A taxi from the port or airport to Boheme Mykonos will cost roughly €15-20. Booking through a private car service will cost only a bit more – about $38 (or €31), but is worth it to avoid the wait and for the convenience of paying ahead.
For those who prefer to drive themselves, we recommend renting a car either at the airport on arrival, or in Mykonos Town. We strongly recommend reserving a vehicle in advance, especially if you require automatic transmission. Upon arrival at the hotel, Boheme Mykonos offers free parking.
- Handy to: Megali Ammos Beach (9-minute walk). Dining, nightlife, and shopping in the Chora (10 to 15-minute walk). The Windmills of Kato Mili/Little Venice (10-minute walk).
Boheme Mykonos – The Basics

The best organized beach nearby is at Ornos, 2.3 km away (5-minute drive). This is a popular beach with golden sand, clear water, and plenty of beach clubs. Ornos Beach and several other great beaches (Platis Gialos, Paraga, Paradise, and Agios Ioannis) are easy to reach by bus from Fabrika nearby.

Boheme Mykonos – Local Transport
- Walking: The hotel is located on the southern edge of Mykonos Town on a hill overlooking Megali Ammos Beach. Boheme Mykonos is within a 10-minute walk of the heart of the village (Chora) and all of the island’s best dining, nightlife, and shopping, and about a 9-minute walk (750m) to the beach. Little Venice and the windmills are a 10-minute walk (850m) away, the Old Port is a 12-minute walk (1km) away, and 2 excellent sunset viewpoints are nearby at Boni’s windmill (1km, 13-minute walk) and 180° Sunset Bar (1.6km, 23-minute walk uphill). The road to and from town does not have a sidewalk and is pretty busy with cars, so exercise caution when walking, especially at night. That said, most people do walk in this area, so drivers are used to sharing the space with pedestrians here.
- Bus: Boheme Mykonos is near 2 bus stops. The closest stop is at Fabrika, a 6-minute walk (450m) away, which serves the New Port (Tourlos), Airport, and the beaches at Ornos, Agios Ioannis, Platis Gialos, Paradise, and Paraga. There is also a bus stop at the far end of the Old Port (1.6km, 20-minute walk) that goes to the New Port (Tourlos), Ano Mera village, and the beaches at Kalafati, Agios Stefanos, Kalo Livadi, Elia, and Panormos. There is no bus connecting Fabrika and the bus station at the Old Port; it takes about 14 minutes to walk from one to the other. Tickets cost from €1.60 to €2.30, depending on the destination. Buses can get very crowded, especially during the high season, so much so that they often fill to capacity and are unable to take on more passengers. There are only 26 public buses serving the island. Bus schedules change every couple of weeks, so check the KTEL website for the most current timetables.
- Taxi: The nearest taxi stand is at Fabrika next to the bus stop, about a 6-minute walk (450m) from the hotel, but there are generally fewer taxis traveling through this area than at the main taxi stand, which is about 18-minutes’ walk (1.4km) away, near the Old Port, behind the Cosmote building and next to the post office. There is almost always a wait at either taxi stand as there are only 30 taxis serving the entire island. Book ahead to avoid the wait, and have the driver meet you at the hotel instead. There will be a surcharge for advanced reservations (about €5) and for carrying luggage, usually just a couple of euros. A taxi from the port or airport to Boheme Mykonos should be about €15 to €20.
- Water Taxi: The New and Old Ports and several beaches are connected via a boat system. The Sea Bus connects the New Port and Old Port with routes running about every 30 minutes, all wheelchair accessible, and all €2 one-way per person, while a Delos round-trip costs €20. Water taxis also connect the southern beaches, with routes connecting the main beaches at Ornos and Platis Gialos with the more remote beaches at Paraga, Paradise, Super Paradise, Agrari, and Elia. A one-beach pass is €10, while an all-day, all-beach pass costs €20.
- Scooters and ATVs: Scooters are the main mode of transportation for the locals, and ATVs are super popular with tourists, but if you’re unfamiliar with the terrain, these can be very dangerous to drive. The roads in Mykonos are zig-zagging, hilly, narrow, littered with potholes, sometimes dirt roads, and without street lights in most areas outside of Mykonos Town. And that’s not to mention the aggressive drivers, some of the world’s worst. A rental car is a much safer bet than a scooter or ATV, and can just as easily reach the more remote beaches on the island.
