Travel: Mykonos – Hotel


I’m back! We arrived on Friday night. A lot is going on! I will do a life update shortly but meanwhile I’ll continue with the travel posts! πŸ™‚

***********

After two nights in Athens, we took the ferry to Mykonos, which was like 4 hrs ride. Since our boat departs at 7:30 AM, we didn’t have time to have breakfast at the hotel. I grabbed one of those gigantic bread ring on the street and a must-to-have capucchino! πŸ™‚

We got lucky because we were picked up by the manager of the hotel that we were going to stay, Myconian Embassador Hotel, who manages two more hotels, when we told him that we were on honeymoon, he gave us an upgrade and we got into the Myconian Imperial Hotel. It is a five star luxury hotel situated in the serene Elia Beach of Mykonos.

bread and olive spread. let me say this: I didn’t like greek food in general, but I do love three things: fresh baked bread, sesame sticks and capucchino. I basically lived with them! πŸ™‚

I had a lettuce, tomatoes, manuoli cheese (a kind of feta cheese that is a little less salty and mild in smell) with balsamic dressing.

The next day I went to the spa. I had a body scrub with papaya, yogurt, sea salt and coconut oil, and a body wrap with avocado oil. It was great! πŸ™‚

Star got into the water and said that there were small fishes around and it is amazing to see them under the water

So, me, who rarely get into the water, was tempted and went

it was cold at the first and slippery because of the stones.

but then I liked the feeling of getting in touch with the nature, saw tons of small almost transparent fishes, and a cute girl! πŸ™‚

It was really fun!!! πŸ˜€

The hotel is truly AMAZING!!! The service is great, it is relatively private, the view is spectacular and the beach, the best I’ve ever been! A real luxury!!!

Next Mykonos Downtown.
