The trendy Cycladic island of Mykonos, in spite of its well-deserved reputation as a place for inveterate party lovers and the international jet set, can also be a secretive and discreet destination. Although sulfurous and animated at night, Mykonos rediscovers its natural charm in the daylight. Its long stretches of fine sand beaches, a deep blue sea and gleaming whitewashed houses have enabled it to conserve its “art de vivre” in spite of the massive influx of tourists. The island’s magnificent landscapes attract thousands of visitors annually and have earned it first place among European tourist destinations. Mykonos’ chic and glamour is comparable and is even surpassing its Spanish rival, Ibiza. Aristotle Onassis, Jacqueline Kennedy and more recently, designer Jean-Paul Gaultier are among the world’s celebrities who have succumbed to the charms of this little Cycladic paradise. As if exhausted by years of uninterrupted festivities, the “queen of the night” is developing a new concept, consisting of calm and intimacy. The hotel infrastructures located on the edge of the beaches offer a smaller number of rooms thus assuring greater tranquility. Discreet and elegant, they’re an ideal way to recharge one’s batteries after a night of pleasure and partying.
Fine sand, deep blue water and a mundane, frivolous atmosphere best describe the Mykonos Blu hotel located along Psarou Beach. Guests come here to relax, to see and to be seen. The hotel’s 100 discreet and elegant bungalows are strung out atop a superb garden, looking in the direction of Delos, the island sanctuary of the god Apollo. Everything is minimalist and white at the Mykonos Blu, paying homage to traditional Cycladic architecture. As if to snub one’s nose at the sulfurous and agitated reputation of the island, the hotel cultivates a new type of atmosphere consisting of the chic and the discreet.
Rest and relaxation are the order of the day with one’s feet in the water of the infinity swimming pool while contemplating the Bay of Psarou. The Aegean Poets restaurant proposes local dishes including melitzanosalata (egg plant salad), mezedes (varied hors d’oeuvres) stuffed tomatoes and peppers, and meatballs flavored with mint and oregano known as keftedes…a gourmet’s delight. The Mykonos Blu is undoubtedly one of the island’s most beautiful hotels, although it remains a well kept secret that makes itself known through word of mouth alone.
The Grecotel chain, founded in 1981 has earned itself a solid reputation based on the quality of its hotels, the services provided, the décor and the food. Grecotel has been awarded more than 150 international prizes.
