We have never met anyone who doesn’t dream about visit Greece. It’s the ultimate summer escape for obvious reasons. Greece is blessed with hundreds of beautiful islands, ancient history, fascinating architecture, delicious cuisine and a laidback lifestyle. When it comes to a choice of which islands to visit you can’t go wrong. Each one has its own beauty and charm. In the month of May, we did island hopping and we had the opportunity to visit some of the best. One of them is definitely Mykonos. It truly emphasizes the Cycladic architecture of whitewashed buildings with narrow cobblestoned streets. There are plenty of fabulous places to stay and of them is, by all means, the luxurious 5* star Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort.
MYKONOS GRAND HOTEL AND RESORT
Mykonos Grand is located in the small village of Ayios Yiannis, only 4 km away from the busy Mykonos Town and only 1.5 km from the beautiful Ornos beach. It’s perched on a hill which provides astonishing views of the Aegean Sea and the sacred island of Delos. The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to Mykonos Town, which is really convenient if you don’t want to drive and it runs every hour. Mykonos Grand Hotel is a 5* luxury hotel with the highest level of hospitality that will provide every category with comfort, relaxation, and pampering while making you feel home away from home.
From the moment we were picked up and drove to the hotel we were amazed by the most welcoming and friendly staff. As soon as you step foot in the exquisite lobby you will be treated with nothing but phenomenal service. The entrance is designed with a remarkable touch for details and would leave you in absolute awe that would leave you to wonder how can you beat this.
We highly recommend grabbing a drink at the White Bar and enjoying the mesmerizing views from the terrace.
Rooms and Suites
Every suite has a view that will leave you speechless. We spent a lot of time on our balcony wondering if this is even real. Our open plan suite was very spacious and bright with a contemporary design and a super comfortable bed. Definitely, the highlight of the room was the bathroom, the fabulous bathtub and believe it or not a steam room. We were very impressed by the high-end BVLGARI bath products which were a great touch. We pretty much had our own SPA in the room, how cool is that?
The Pool and The Beach
Honestly, is there anything better than a pool with a spectacular sea view? It’s a 500 sqm seawater swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds and cabanas. There is a Pool Bar where you can enjoy some amazing crafted cocktails and Aqua E Sole for some delicious lunch food. Mykonos Grand hotel also has a beautiful private beach at the Ayios Yiannis beach where the movie Shirley Valentine was filmed. It’s perfect for long swims and relaxing as no water sports are allowed. Make sure you don’t miss a sunset view from either the pool or the beach.
That’s right, Mykonos Grand Hotel has a stone built Amphitheatre with a breathtaking view. They host different unique events, weddings, parties, concerts, yoga and pilates sessions. It’s definitely a must see place.
This is where definitely one of the 5 stars belongs, the Dolphin of Delos restaurant. It offers open-air dining with views that make the gourmet food even more delicious. This is where the breakfast buffet happens, and at night time it transforms into a completely romantic candlelit atmosphere. The service is top class and the food heavenly.
If we could we would give an extra star to Mykonos Grand Hotel. They even have a library which is really beautifully designed, white and spacious. There’s an outdoor area with a swinging loveseat which is perfect to read a book or even snooze.
Spa and Fitness
The hotel also features the Althea Spa center with fantastic varieties of treatments designed for everyone’s taste. Your stay would not be complete without a visit to the spa. For the ones that love working out the Fitness center is equipped with an integrated collection of Technogym cardio, strength, and functional equipment. If you would like, there is a personal trainer available upon request.
We hope that we inspire you to stay at this amazing hotel for your next visit to Mykonos. One last thing but not least to add is that the whole entire staff of Mykonos Grand Hotel are impeccable professionals who will make sure you have the most unforgettable experience.
