PROS & THINGS I LIKE
  • Cavo Tagoo is positioned on the western coast of the idyllic island of Mykonos. In response to mythology, Greece’s most well-known cosmopolitan island was fashioned from the petrified our bodies of giants killed by Hercules and took its identify from Apollo’s grandson, Mykonos. With its conventional whitewashed homes, iconic windmills, and cobblestoned mazy alleyways, the postcard-worthy island villages and particularly the capital Chora (higher often called Mykonos City) devotedly protect their genuine Cycladic character. Mykonos is especially identified for its occasion way of life subsequent to none, its LGBT welcoming atmosphere, and its lovely (however typically crowded) seashores.
  • Thought-about by many to be one of many prime lodges in Mykonos, Cavo Tagoo enjoys a gorgeous setting in a bay on the outskirts of Mykonos City. Tumbling down a rocky hill in sensuous curves, the well-known property affords spectacular views of the deepblue Aegan Sea from its multi-level terraces and alleys. Staying right here can also be handy because it places you inside strolling distance of Mykonos City and its nightlife; the resort additionally offers 24/7 on-demand complimentary shuttle service to city in case you don’t wish to stroll. The airport is a couple of 10-minute drive from the resort, and the ferry terminal is just a 5 minute drive away.
  • Inbuilt 1985 on prime of an deserted quarry and extensively renovated in 2005 and 2018, Cavo Tagoo Mykonos includes a trendy design. The resort’s light-filled public areas pair conventional Cycladic whitewashed structure with daring up to date artwork and gleaming splashes of gold, creating a stylish and soothing ambiance that makes it a dreamy escape. Use of conventional rustic parts – comparable to roof prime pebble bonding, uncovered stone partitions, and genuine bamboo ceilings – join Cavo Tagoo with its environment, albeit in a strikingly fashionable and minimalist means. However whereas the sense of haute-couture stylish is seen in all areas of the resort, the property’s focus continues to be the startling blue of the ocean and sky, which may be glimpsed from each door and window.
  • Situated subsequent to the ethereal foyer, the resort’s middle of motion is the beautiful pool deck, which has featured in numerous Instagram photographs. The 38 meter (125 ft) lengthy contemporary water pool follows the curves of the shore and affords breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and different Greek islands within the distance. The infinity pool was enlarged in 2018 and now options two rows of floating solar loungers that are clearly extremely widespread among the many resort’s handsome company, who comes right here to calm down, socialize, see and be seen. There’s additionally a 3rd row of solar loungers behind the pool, with covers offering some welcome shade through the warmth of the day (though it by no means will get too scorching in Mykonos as a result of fixed breeze).
  • Cavo Tagoo Mykonos options 83 individually embellished and designed rooms, suites and villas, which all embody a Cycladic whitewashed design infused by minimalist purity. Throughout my go to, I used to be upgraded to a two bed room suite. Evoking a fusion of high-quality model and class, the mesmerizing suite encapsulated the cosmopolitan grace of Mykonos in its brilliantly appointed inside. The suite’s cozy dwelling space gave approach to a stunning terrace with personal plunge pool with daybed and floating loungers. The suite featured a main bedroom with plush king-size mattress and an open-plan toilet (geared up with one sink and a walk-in bathe) in addition to a second, albeit smaller bed room with an analogous structure.
  • Cavo Tagoo Mykonos options just one restaurant – known as Meraki – which positioned pool-side in an open-air setting and providing lovely vistas of the shimmering Aegean Sea. The restaurant affords a menu with informal fare at lunch however turns into a nice eating venue – and considered one of Mykonos’ most wanted dinner locations – within the night, serving mouthwatering meals that’s impressed by nice worldwide recipes and genuine Greek specialties. Every morning (from 8 am until 11.30 am), the restaurant additionally places out a lavish breakfast buffet, that can impress even probably the most seasoned vacationers. Subsequent to the restaurant is a energetic bar with a shocking aquarium counter, which is ideal for a pre- or post-dinner drink.
  • Cavo Tagoo’s west-facing and elevated location affords unimaginable sundown views from each nook (rooms and public areas). Apart from its picturesque villages and legendary occasion scene, Mykonos can also be broadly often called one of many world’s most magical sunsets spots. Every night, hundreds of vacationers flock to the western facet of the island (primarily Little Venice in Mykonos City) to observe the spectacle of the setting solar portray the sky in probably the most magnificent coloration palette. However company of Cavo Tagoo Mykonos gained’t must mingle with the crowds as its one of many only a few lodges on the island providing unobstructed views of the sundown which – mixed with the infinity pool – makes for some superior photograph alternatives.
  • Situated one ground beneath the foyer, the resort’s intimate spa affords a realm of pampering, leisure and wellness. Services embrace a steam tub, sauna and several other therapy rooms (for {couples} and single vacationers). The spa affords an incredible vary of remedies enriched with additional virgin Greek olive oil and useful minerals from the Aegean Sea. All spa merchandise have been diligently sourced for his or her efficacy, texture, perfume and holistic integrity (and they’re out there for buy as effectively). There’s additionally a decently geared up fitness center subsequent to the spa though this place has no pure gentle as a consequence of its location within the basement.
  • The resort enjoys movie star standing.

Common movie star guests embrace supermodel Izabel Goulart, Lindsay Lohan, Fairly Little Liars’ star Shay Mitchell, Ariana Grande, Gerard Butler, Paris Hilton, Leo Di Caprio, and even the Kardashians.

CONS & THINGS TO KNOW
  • Cavo Tagoo Mykonos exudes a fashionable and funky vibe. For instance, lounge music is performed all day lengthy across the pool by an in-house DJ, which contributes to the property’s recognition amongst a younger and classy clientele, however will not be to the liking of these looking for tranquil seclusion.
  • The views of the Aegean Sea are wonderful. Nevertheless there’s a ferry port near the resort, and in summer time one to 2 cruise ships per day anchor within the bay in entrance of the resort. This may increasingly sometimes block the view of the horizon or the sundown, though this gained’t be a problem for many company. In truth, it’s enjoyable to watch the hectic exercise round these ships from the pool deck.
  • There’s a busy cliff street in entrance of the property, instantly beneath the pool. The excellent news is that you simply can not see that street from the pool deck (until you swim to the pool’s edge) though the sound of passing visitors is typically audible from the pool space.
  • The property has no direct seaside entry, though there are two, quite unattractive seashores proper in entrance of the resort. Mykonos’ greatest seashores are positioned on the island’s different facet, however are nonetheless inside a straightforward 15-minute (taxi) drive from the resort.
  • The resort is positioned near Mykonos city. The middle (with its eating places, outlets and picturesque Little Venice district) may be reached on foot, however the stroll requires braving a busy cliff street with no sidewalk, poorly lit at night time. You need to be very cautious, so I counsel to utilize the resort’s on-demand complimentary shuttle service to/from city (24/7), though the resort automotive just isn’t at all times out there at instances of excessive occupancy .
  • Cavo Tagoo Mykonos is an costly property, however you must know that getting in. Room charges are consistent with what you’ll pay at different high-end properties on the Greek islands. Whereas meals is exorbitantly priced, it’s genuinely among the many greatest and most refined meals on the island.
  • The property will get some blended opinions on Tripadvisor concerning its service. I can guarantee you although that in my keep, the service was nothing in need of good and the employees couldn’t be extra useful, from the home maids and servers to the concierge and administration.
