Grecotel Mykonos Blu: Beach Resort Luxury

Grecotel Mykonos Blu: Beach Resort Luxury

Grecotel Mykonos Blu is one of the most stunning beach resorts on Mykonos where you’ll take in a view you’ll never want to leave.

Stay at the Grecotel Mykonos Blu

My last trip to Mykonos brought me to experience the Grecotel Mykonos Blu. I didn’t want to leave. Mykonos forever!  What was it?  A combination of everything: fantastic hospitality, gorgeous Cycladic design, indulgently relaxing corners, overall spaciousness and sparkling sea views. This stay puts you in a whitewashed dreamy island spell.

 

The check-in process was a foreshadowing to what was in store.  We were invited to sit back just take in the beach view from the stunning open air lobby, as we sipped freshly squeezed juices.

Location on Mykonos: Psarrou Beach

One of the “it” beaches on Mykonos is Psarrou, famous for being the jet set destination of the rich, famous and people who want to see the rich and famous. Here you’ll spot the likes of Shakira, Lindsay Lohan, Russell Crowe to whomever famous is exploring the island at the time.  The Grecotel Mykonos Blu overlooks the beach, a bit away – should you want your own relaxing private kind of day – or a short walk down a stone stairway if you feel like seeing what kind of crowd is at the beach.

The public bus stop is in front of the hotel and during summer season heads to and from Mykonos Town on the hour.

Design and Rooms: Grecotel Mykonos Blu

Staying on the Cycladic islands is partly about experiencing its architecture. The Grecotel Mykonos Blu does it with an elegant way with classic cubist details that show off striking whitewashed coolness.  Original art pieces from Greek artists add a unique touch too.

The Grecotel Mykonos Blue has 103 whitewashed stone bungalows and suites. You can opt for a private pool suite too.

My Junior Bungalow Suite featured a circular tub and separate waterfall shower.  Bath toiletries are from Grecotel’s Eau de Grece line. There’s a beach bag too.  You’ll have your sunblock and cooling spray mist covered.

Dining at the Grecotel Mykonos Blu

The superb view is more of a wake up call than any strong cup of coffee.  Sit out on the veranda with selections from the large breakfast buffet.

During the summer, a late breakfast extends into the afternoon, well, as we were told, “Because it’s Mykonos.” Indeed.

The Brasserie L’Archipel serves meals by the pool. The Poets of the Aegean has a lunch menu of Greek specialities. Many of the ingredients are sourced from Grecotel’s organic Agreco Farm. The hotel’s bar has a special selection of creative cocktails inspired by the colors of the Aegean Sea.

Services and Facilities at the Grecotel Mykonos Blu

For those looking to work out, the hotel has a gym. There’s also an Elixir Health Spa for treatments and massages. The two-level infinity outdoor pool is just as stunning as the small shaded pool in a whitewashed cave.

Concierge services can arrange helicopter transfer, tours and boating excursions. There is even a Kids’ Club during the summer season. The hotel is pretty family friendly.

Conclusion: Stay at the Grecotel Mykonos Blu
