Give all five senses a treat at Kivotos, Mykonos
High summer is upon us; high time to stretch out on your sunbed and succumb to the delights of Mykonos and the Kivotos hotel, nestled in picture-perfect style into Ornos Bay. You simply can’t get anything more summery than August on this famous dazzling Greek gem, the pride of the Aegean. And at Kivotos, they bring out the magic of the season to full effect, heightening every one of your five senses with sights, sounds, aromas, tastes and experiences which take you straight to the heart of everyone’s idyll of a Mediterranean vacation; crystalline waters, cloudless cobalt skies and perpetual sunshine… and this is just the beginning!
Step inside their Royal two-bedroom suite, adorned with evocative objects d’art which has become their trademark; its soothing, pristine pastel shades, delicate textures and the promise of the high quality, bespoke services to come instantly elevate your mood to regal heights. Outside on the veranda, your own exclusive pool, around which you can sip cocktails to your heart’s content between dips, adds to the growing feeling that this is a holiday throughout which genuine VIP treatment is the norm rather than the exception.
Scenes to savour
All around you, the incandescent whites of Mykonian architecture, the colours and fragrances from well-tended gardens and flower beds, offset by the brilliant blues and salty tang of seaborne breezes, regale your senses. The woody, taupe tones and famous stone walls blend gracefully with Pendelic marble, so favoured by ancient Greek builders. Debonair sea birds swoop past the famous windmills, sails buffeted by the wind. Put all these scenes together and you have the ultimate summer wake-up call, reminding you of the simple joy of being alive.
The sights and sounds of the landscape are matched by the attractively presented and delicious-tasting dishes and the impeccable service which go to make up the Kivotos dining experience. You will enjoy authentic tastes of the island with locally grown meat and vegetable produce, not to mention the best of the fishermen’s latest catch. Here the traditional Mediterranean diet is enhanced by the creativity of gourmet chefs in La Meduse, who conjure feasts for your eyes as well as your palate.
Having experienced such culinary pleasures, you can ease away all your stresses and strains and invigorate body and soul in the state-of-the-art spa and leisure complex. They’ll be plenty of time too for a little shopping therapy. Their sumptuous boutique will prove irresistible with its combined offer of high-end international brands and a dash of local colour and craft to entice you in. Afterwards, you can head down to the Kivotos beach with all your newly acquired accessories to feel the soft sands between your toes, and the sort of sensation you only get when ensconced in your own little haven of tranquility.
An invitation to romance
Everyone knows that the very best time to visit the Greek islands is when you’re in love. Anyone already in this exalted state will find Kivotos an eager accomplice in Cupid’s eternal quest. You can stroll hand in hand along the beach, have fun in the waves, dine to the light of the moon on a private jetty or sail on a private yacht showering affection upon each other as you are daubed in the glorious rays of a blazing Aegean sunset.
