Vacation: Mykonos Day One

So the time had finally arrived to go on our little Vacation.  I had been counting down the weeks ever since we booked this getaway way back in January!

Having never been to Mykonos before (and Greece only once, way back in 2007!), we decided to do a bit of research on the island.  It quickly became very clear that Mykonos is extremely popular with the A Listers and after researching hotels, we instantly fell in love with The Belvedere Hotel.

We flew with EasyJet (who were amazing) and arrived into Mykonos from London Gatwick at 10:15am & was greeted with sunshine and our driver.  The airport is 1.6km away from the Town & so it only took us around 10 minutes to arrive.

We then checked in & thankfully our room was ready right away.  After nearly crying at how wonderful the views were, we got straight into our swimwear & started off our tans!

The layout of the pool area was stunning & had a Miami beach type vibe.  The white beds, pillows & orange towels were my best friends during the whole holiday! (That and the food!).

After a certain time, they play music around the pool, which gives it a more chilled atmosphere.  You can also play this music in your room – and with speakers in the shower, you can also listen to it there!

After a few hours getting acquainted with Mr Sunshine, we then grabbed lunch at the award winning hotel restaurant.  Run by Executive Chef Nikos Zervos, who joined the Belvedere team from a two star Michelin restaurant, we quickly became obsessed with the food & actually ate there for lunch most days.

After being recommended the famous Spinach Pie Salad, I was NOT disappointed!

Paired with a Lychee Martini & a Cucumber Crush, it was the perfect lunch!

About 6pm, we took a walk into Mykonos Town.

With everything on the Island within a 30 minute walk, it was a lovely evening stroll where we stumbled upon lots of cute little stores run by the local Greek population.

Mixed in with these stores, you have designer stores which include Louis Vuitton, Sephora, Victoria Secrets & watch shops offering Rolex’s & Cartier watches etc.

After getting lost in the long & winding streets and looking at the pretty stores, we found our way back to the Hotel where we chilled out on our balcony before dressing for dinner.

We were very lucky as from our room, we could watch the sunset which was truly amazing!

Whilst soaking up the sunshine earlier in the day, we made reservations at the Belvedere Restaurant for 8:30pm.

With it being our first night, we thought it would be nice to eat on our doorstep.  The views and setting at the hotel at night time was the most perfect thing I have ever seen & I was so happy we chose to eat here on our first night!

We got back to our room around midnight, where we found a movie channel on our TV.

With a smile on my face, I couldn’t wait to wake up for Day Two!

*be sure to check back in the next few days to see what we got up to on Day Two!*
