WE HAVE JUST BEEN TO MYKONOS, part 2, Mykonos Grace
GLORIOUSLY GREECE & GRACE
You have to book far ahead for this chic boutique hotel located just north of trendy Mykonos town. With days still warm at the end of September, we found Mykonos Grace was a romantic spot for couples to relax in stunning surroundings. Yet in only 5 minutes, the hotel shuttle gets you down town to where it all happens.
We stayed in a deluxe room with plunge pool (most rooms at Mykonos Grace have plunge pools). The room was small but chic, and the view from the big furnished terrace was amazing (room 51). This is a blue and white world – gloriously Greece.
From the hotel you have only 2 minutes walk down to the sandy beach (ask in the reception for towels). Here you find several tavernas that serve typical Greek food.
The Restaurant in the Mykonos Grace also serves really delicious and exclusive food. The breakfast is a la carte so everything is very fresh.
We were really impressed with the exclusive dining that Mykonos had to offer – it’s hard to find anything better in the whole of Greece. Just to mention two of them.
Gola: Here you have a lounge atmosphere feeling with a nice view overlooking of Mykonos. The Mediterranean food is just fabulous. Gola is located between Hotel Grace and the Town.
Interni Ristorante: This deluxe Italian Restaurant is one of the 10 best restaurants in Greece. Interni is located in the heart of Mykonos Town. Your nightlife in Mykonos can easily start from here. And go on till dawn...
Interni fresh lobsters
Both restaurants are perfect for our top luxury Select Collection clients.
Back to the hotel. It also offers a big shared swimming pool and relaxing terrace with generous sunbeds and breathtaking view.
You even get wonderful views from the library - a big library with huge balcony where you can take a drink or just relax..
The hotel also has a small spa and a small small gym – with two people training it would feel really cramped!
We did try treatments at the spa and were really impressed. Though the spa is quite small, the steam room had plenty of space and it was pleasant to relax there before the treatment.
We really like Mykonos Grace and found the staff very friendly. Starting from the first moment when we were offered champagne at reception...
