The Head of Myconian Collection's Rooms Division Operations makes your stay an experience to remember.

Meet an expert who embraces the Myconian Collection ‘s concept of hospitality, and see Mykonos through his own eyes!

There is a spot where I like to stand and from which I look out at the beach of Elia in the early hours of the day. It is the moment when the wind has fallen and absolute peace prevails. For me, Mykonos is that moment”. For Panagiotis Doufekoulas, professional pressure is his revitalising breath. His job is a daily training for his talent in communication. When you love what you do, you are rather blessed. “My work is a place I love, where I make good use of my character strengths”, he says in a steady voice without hesitation.

Mykonos is not an international destination by chance, as its beaches and Delos make it stand out from the rest.


Even rare moments of adversity, in which it is essential “to satisfy the most difficult customer 100%”, are a pleasurable challenge for him. He is constantly on the move, always interacting with people and never stops working. “I’m probably a workaholic to the extent that I want everything to be immaculate,” he admits, but “always with a positive outlook”. And behind his seemingly effortless ease, there is a methodical professional who asks for a full update as soon as he arrives at his office, having already covered what he needs to know in the first minutes of the day, and fully prepared for the unexpected.

He is also a lover of Mykonos and its uniqueness: “It is not an international destination by chance, as its beaches and Delos make it stand out from the rest.”
