DESIGN + TRAVEL: MYKONOS BLU
Greek luxury resorts are rarely gigantic in size but what they lack in size they make up in location and service. Can a resort really be THAT great when it does not have direct access to the beach or faces the wrong way (aka no sunsets)? Rarely. So queue in the boutique Mykonos Blu, the first 5 star hotel on Island of Winds (hence the post title), Mykonos, in Greece.
The island of Mykonos
Mykonos. This is the place where, for decades, anywhere who wanted to be someone visited, and anyone who was/is someone has a summer home. A favourite of the paparazzi, the island draws masses of famous actors, tv stars, singers and politicians and most of its beaches are overcrowded, over-priced and somehow over-familiar.
Everything on the island screams luxury. You can have your lunch by the sea in designer restaurants where giant fans gently emit mist to cool you down. MIST. It's like having an Evian spray on overdrive. Perfect for your sun-dried hair. So, thinking azure waters and blue skies? Mykonos can deliver the goods, I promise. Along with great views of the yachts of the rich and famous.
