I have been dreaming of visiting Greece for as long as I can remember.
Social media feeds cyclically fill on an annual basis with the hues of Aegean blues come the Australian winter months. I was thrilled when it was finally my turn to indulge in the Grecian lifestyle for myself.
Winding out of the main town, the distinct blue of the Aegean bombards and tantalises all the cones and rods in one’s eye, the fluidity and silkiness of the ocean gently kissing the parched shores is somewhat poetic to observe. In some places, the water appears as though it is dancing as it sparkles in the Mediterranean sun.
Upon pulling up in front of the beachfront prime located Grace, our lethargic bodies are enveloped by the plush white couches, sinking in as formalities and paperwork are addressed and signed.
My ears perk up at the mention of ‘champagne breakfast’, ushered upstairs to our poolside breakfast and a bottomless glass of quality champagne. My belly is full and satisfied after the generous meal. And my energy restored. I am also giggling with very little encouragement. Might be something to do with the champers.
The executive suite with crisp white sheets and minimalistic/Scandi style of interior design aligns with the ambience of this slice of the island, void of drunken party goers and signature of the Grace touch.
Stepping outside into the expansive sun drenched deck with a delightful tempered jacuzzi takes luxury relaxation to a whole new level. The perfect spot for taking in the sunset over some wine, overlooking Agios Stefanos.
Grace Mykonos was the perfect place to unwind with two of my best girlfriends, allowing the days to edge on ever so slowly, with no need to check the time, the rare absence of hustle and bustle, and an overwhelming sense of living in the present moment.
I was kindly invited by management and The Luxe Nomad to stay at Grace Mykonos . All words and opinions however, remain my own.
