Mykonos Grand custom made tableware collection by Constantinos Charbilas

My inspiration was the inimitable island of Delosthere, opposite the hotel. When you’re dining or coming down the grand staircase by the pool you feel that if you just reached out your hand you would touch it”. Constantinos Charbilas, the tableware designer, sits next to me, on a summer-like day in mid-May, backs to the pool, gazing out at the crystal-clear sea spread before us. He squints in the blinding light enveloping the island and goes on. “And of course the structures on Delos. The famous home which probably belonged to a Phoenician merchant at the beginning of the 1st century, with its dolphins and ancient Greek meanders gracing the gorgeous mosaic floors in the ground-floor courtyard”. In my hands, I hold a large cup of hot coffee. Custom made tableware, the perimeter of which is decorated with the mosaic dolphins and meander, just as the original, with four small cupids, each riding a pair of dolphins. One of the resort’s 2 restaurants is named “Dolphins of Delos”, after the mosaic that graces its entrance, the spectacular view of the island of Delos opposite and the custom made tableware created to enhance the guests’ Mykonos dining experience.

Mykonos Spa: Carried Away on the Soothing Waves of Althea Spa Center

Mykonos Althea Spa offer relaxing massages, unique beauty treatments, facials, manicures & pedicures

As I walked down the stairs, the first thing I noticed was a warm smile lighting up a clear face. Anastasia, the Spa manageress, was pretty: flawless skin, bright eyes and a wide, genuine smile that revealed her inner beauty. I had arrived just two hours earlier. I had enjoyed a refreshing virgin mojito poolside, while getting lost in the infinite shades of blue dancing before my eyes under the sparkling sun. My better half dove into the water contentedly while I lay out under the warm sun trying to awaken my senses after the long, tiring winter that had passed. “I feel like my skin is a sickly white color, and so dry. Dehydrated from hot winter showers, heavy clothes and lack of water, which in the winter you have to make yourself drink since your body just doesn’t ask for it. It’s screaming for rehydration. My body, tired and weary from the hours I make it sit in front of a computer screen, longs for a touch that will soothe it, refresh it, invigorate it”. That’s what I told her. And she, with that same warm smile, nodded empathetically as she listened, understanding my body’s need for a bit of pampering. I reclined on a comfortable bed in a fragrant treatment room. Serenity and clarity began to softly envelop me. I sensed an intangible lightness and freshness slowly seep into my fatigued body. The treatment began with a hydrating spray, and immediately afterwards my skin was freed of the dead cells that had taken over its outer layer, with a foaming scrub and natural sea sponge. And then… the journey truly began. A re-acquaintance with my body through the hands of my personal treatment specialist. A product that smelled of sea and purity, soft to the touch, a concentrate of seawater, Oligomer ®, rich in the trace elements and minerals that are so vital for the body’s proper functioning, soothed me of stress yet simultaneously stimulated, reinvigorated, enlivened me. When the treatment was over, I sipped mint-infused water and stood up. I no longer felt that all-too-familiar weight pulling me down. My skin, silky both in appearance and to the touch. My mood had changed. I felt lighter, I spoke more confidently, more quickly. I bounded up the stairs and stretched out under an umbrella in a poolside lounge chair. I was ready to begin my holiday. Refreshed, rehydrated, pampered. I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect start to my vacation. The Althea Spa 90-minute Sea Foam Massage, at Mykonos Grand. Uncover beauty treatments by our highly-trained specialists, at the most experienced and knowledgeable Mykonos spa.

A Genuine Mykonian Welcome

Mykonos Grand Genuine welcome to guests at the top 5 star Mykonos resort

We were having a “lively” discussion about Greece, about this incredibly blessed country of ours, and its ability to turn tourism into a serious industry. At points we agreed, at others butted heads. We spoke in our mother tongue, on high volume as Greeks tend to do, with solid arguments based in cold, hard fact and other, more shaky ones based in wishful thinking. But when the subject of Mykonos came up, spirits calmed. Tones softened. The discussion became a flurry of positive examples. Shining case studies of a different Greece within Greece. One of the first mentioned was Mykonos Grand Luxury Hotel, crowning jewel of the legendary island, one of the world’s top 10 beach hotels according to the CNT 2014 Gold List, renowned for its facilities, services and hospitality, a role model for aesthetics and tourism infrastructure. And from there began a long conversation about the island and its tourism dynamics…
