You can find the chaos if you’re looking for it but our trip to the fabulous island paradise was the perfect blend of laid back luxury, gorgeous beaches, to-die-for dinners and a little bit of wild antics, too! Mykonos is pricey but worth it.
Here are the Mykonos must-dos in my book:
Part of the rockstar Grace Hotels chain, this seaside stunner is exactly what you’d expect from the 2008 Conde Nast Traveler Hot List winner. 32 rooms perched on Agios Stefanos Beach are the ideal place for sexy serenity and 1st class service. Rent a moped to zoom around the island during the day but park it at night and let the overly accommodating hotel staff drop you off and pick you up from town. Go in September or October. The weather’s still gorgeous, the crowds are gone and rates start from €275 per night.
This hip newcomer in Mykonos town is the place to go for the freshest, most delish sushi, an eclectic Greek wine list and hands down the phenomenal, international people watching. Make sure to request a table outside to take in model-esque crowd strutting by. We’d planned on going to Nobu’s newest outpost, Matsuisha Mykonos, at the Belvedere Hotel — wish we heard is great, too — but figured we can go to Nobu back in New York. My rec, go there for a cocktail first and then head to Coo for dinner.
Bottomline – Mykonos is expensive but magical. I’d definitely sell half of my wardrobe to go back.
