With long stretches of fine sandy beaches, azure water blending with the transparent blue sky until they become indistinguishable from each other on the horizon and immaculately, almost blinding whitewashed houses give one the impression that the Cyclades archipelago was created by the gods. The enchanting beauty of its landscapes attracts thousands of visitors annually, who come to relax on the peaceful island of Santorini or to have fun party on the banks of the exciting and animated island of Mykonos.
For a long time, Mykonos was a small, discreet beach resort, before being crowned with the official title of “Queen of the Cyclades”. Nightclubs, trendy bars and boutiques have invaded the streets of the island, frequented today by members of the international jet set. Celebrities galore have succumbed to the charms of Mykonos including Aristotle Onassis, Jacqueline Kennedy and more recently, designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. In October, 2010, the island was voted the most appreciated European tourist destination by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine.
Along the fine sand and deep blue water of Agios Yiannis beach, Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort faces in the direction of Delos, the island sanctuary of the god Apollo. This modern, elegant hotel is both discreet and minimalist with light and pastel colors, white marble and precious wood. The pure interiors emanate a feeling of peace and serenity. Totally renovated in 2006, Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort has nothing in common with the island’s traditional activities. Snubbing its nose at Mykonos’ sulfurous and frenetic reputation, the hotel places the accent on a new “art de vivre” including the chic, the secretive and the intimate.
Whether it’s with one’s feet in the water, lying on a deck chair or being treated in one of the Althea Spa’s cabins, the emphasis is on rest and relaxation, far from all the agitation and stress. The gleaming white of the Dolphino of Delos restaurant prolongs the experience. In an almost virginal décor, opening onto the Aegean Sea, the cuisine highlights local specialties such as melitzanosalata (egg plant salad), mezedes (varied hors d’oeuvres), tomatoes, stuffed peppers, and keftedes, meatballs flavored with mint and oregano…a gourmet’s delight. The Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort is an ideal place for a family vacation.
The Mykonos Grand Hotel was used as the décor for the film, “Shirley Valentine”, directed by Lewis Gilbert and released in 1989.
