Follow Faithfull #BTS as we treat you to the must know spots & hidden island treasures of the breathtaking Mykonos, Greece for our Fall 2017 Collection
– Where to Stay –
Welcome to one of the prettiest spots on the entire island of Mykonos – The Bay of Ornos. Unpredecent views of the Agean Sea, romantic sunsets and post card perfect boat scenes led to a remarkably calming first impression.
With over 15 years of experience, Kivotos Mykonos has been revamping its oasis to the preferred art based luxury villa accommodation on the beautiful shores of one of Greece’s finest islands.
To say we were already in awe is an understatement, Kivotos truly knows how to deliver exceeding customer service for the luxe traveller. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to our own private villa booked through the amazing team at Kiwi Collection which included a private Jacuzzi and breathtaking pool overlooking the mesmerizing Aegean waterfront.
Boasting an exquisite buffet breakfast (which we definitely took advantage of!) and jaw dropping private dining experience Kivotos made sure our stay was that extra bit special.
Lose yourself to the tastes of Greece at your very own Candle Light Private Dinner served on the beach front deck overlooking the night sky. Book directly upon arrival with Kivotos for your own personal slice of a sunset romance with Mykonos & your special someone.
For those that wish to experience a more relaxed dining experience, we recommend La Meduse Restaurant with a feast of fresh seafood and greek delicacies to blow your taste buds.
Grown tiresome of the hours spent walking cobblestone arch ways and frolicking in the summer waters? Treat yourself to a Pamper at The Mozaic Spa during your stay.
Fancy something a little more adventurous? Kivotos offers all guests the opportunity to hire its private luxurious Sailing Yacht for the ultimate Mykonos experience. Prince de Neufchatel is a 25 metre yacht available for daily or weekly cruises around the Aegean Sea.

Deep within Mykonos Old Town you can spend hours hunting for intricate hand crafted treasures from artisan embroidered textiles to delicate silver jewelry.
We don’t believe you can spend too much time lazing the days away in Greece, it’s basically medicine for the soul! Grab a day bed at Alemagou with a glass of rose close by and take in the european summer sun. Set at the back of a secluded ocean front with a relaxed beach club vibe, we couldn’t recommend Alemago more.

What’s a European vacation without some water adventure? Even if it’s just for an hour, take the plunge and hire a boat to experience the thrill of Greece from a distance.
RENT AN ATV
If you’ve done your research you won’t be shocked to hear the standard transport of Greece is ATV driving. You’ll be sure to discover those hidden beaches, coves and see the best parts of Mykonos on your own time schedule.
Spend hours getting lost on the white washed cobble stone streets of Mykonos Town and its surroundings, exploring each nook and cranny. We dare you to walk 10 meters without stopping for that photo moment!
Yes, you have read that right. Although we didn’t get to explore the treat of a sunset from the southern tip of Mykonos town – it is definitely added to our bucket list. Pack a bottle of red, a blanket and some greek delicacies and you’re ready for a cozy spot for some mesmerizing sunset magic.
