A heavenly spa opposite Apollo s birthplace. Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort is across the Aegean from the sacred isle of Delos, reputedly the sunniest place on earth. Set next to the large outdoor pool, the spa is pure sensory indulgence while two excellent restaurants cater to indoor and outdoor dining.
The Cycladic architecture blends bright whitewashed walls with pretty stonework. Inside, it is a rhapsody in white, with dashes of colour. Swathes of creamy linen protect you from the sun in poolside cabanas and some suites have private pools. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast by the pool, which is the epicentre of the resort.
Take an all-natural spa treatment, lounge in the hot tub and snooze in a cabana, before asking the chef to barbecue your lunch. Later on, tear yourself away from this indulgence and sip cocktails in the newly renovated White Bar followed by alfresco dinning on the restaurant terrace. Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
