Grace Mykonos

Last week my boyfriend whisked me off to Mykonos, a sparkly little gem in the Greek Aegean. Perched on the roadside overlooking the glimmering Agios Stefanos, Grace Mykonos is a statuesque example of Cycladic architecture – flat roofs, cubic whitewashed walls and flowering balconies.

We climbed the narrow stone path – up, up, up – to the landing outside our suite. The double doors were flung open to the cool, bright interior of our room. Minimalistic and airy seaside chic design – we were surprised by lots of elegant touches, including fresh flowers, a sleek shower stocked with Greek brand Apivita luxury beauty products, and a bottle of local wine chilling on ice.

But wait… there was still more. Sneak around the outside wall of the suite and up another marble staircase, which leads you through a little landscaped garden to the roof terrace. With complete 180° views – from Mykonos harbor to the farthest tip of the island, plus a plunge pool, a fully stocked bar, and total privacy, I felt like the queen of my own little isle. With my iPod speakers humming away, I blissfully soaked up the afternoon sun and gazed out over the Mediterranean in sheer awe.

It’s going to be hard to budge from this spot ever again!
