A PIECE OF HEAVEN IN CAVO TAGOO MYKONOS

We wanted to leave something special for the end of our holidays in Greece. After all, this last year had been a little different: our first year as a married couple, and in our new home Vienna. In fact, the start of a great adventure! Having several reasons to celebrate, we decided to indulge ourselves and book the last 3 days in Mykonos at a paradise called Cavo Tagoo._mg_0078

I must admit that Cavo Tagoo and the absolutely incredible views from each of its rooms is a dream come true for every photographer (If you have been following me on Instagram you will know what I mean right?). We were lucky to stay in 2 types of rooms: The Honeymoon Suite, ideal for couples, and The Golden Villa, even more spacious and exclusive. Both rooms fascinated us, especially for their comfort and spectacular sea views. Have you ever heard of the “infinity pools” of Greece? They are those that seem drawn from postcards. They blend into the background sea, creating the illusion of swimming in the ocean! Can you imagine having one in your own room? Oh, and a Jacuzzi? YES, you’ve read that right! Trust me! It´s an unforgettable experience swimming in one of them enjoying the sun falling down on the waters of the Aegean Sea.

Would you like to know about the breakfast we were served? We found it superb! There were options for all tastes, from sweet treats (those who know me know I have a soft spot for them…), a great deal of healthy options, to a variety of savoury specialties of excellent quality (with the latter, husband was in his element!).

On the other hand, for people like us who like to explore the places where they go on holiday, the location is an important factor when deciding where to stay. We loved it that despite being located 500 meters away from the centre, the Hotel has its own Shuttle service, 24 hours a day. As if this were not enough, it has a luxurious spa! So, as you can imagine, after walking and shouldering our cameras throughout the day, relaxing at the spa in the afternoon was heaven!

The sunsets at Cavo Tagoo are something magical and deserve a separate mention. As I pointed out before, the hotel has unique views of the sea and downtown Mykonos, which guarantees a perfect sight. (See Timelapse) At this time of day, it’s a privilege to enjoy the chill out mood in the lounge by the pool bar: A DJ plays soft music, while the guests sip a delicious cocktail with appetizers..

As for the decor, it is a minimalist and modern hotel inspired by the simple and chic white style that characterizes the Cycladic islands. An interesting fact is that the hotel has won several awards for its exceptional decoration: Cavo Tagoo surely knows how to make a difference 😉 Speaking of which, it should be noted that the staff was incredibly polite and friendly always making sure that we had the best time during our stay on the island. No doubt they succeeded! Cavo Tagoo, a big thank you for this unforgettable experience! We hope to be back soon!

Queríamos dejar algo especial para el fin de nuestras vacaciones en Grecia. Despues de todo, este fue un año distinto: nuestro primer año de casados, el primero en Viena, y el inicio de esta gran aventura! Teniendo varios motivos para festejar, decidimos darnos el gusto y reservar los últimos 3 días en Mykonos en un paraiso llamado Cavo Tagoo.

Debo admitir que Cavo Tagoo y la vista increible de cada una de sus habitaciones es un sueño para todo fotografo (Si me estuvieron siguiendo por Instagram seguro saben a lo que me refiero!). Tuvimos la suerte de dormir en 2 tipos de habitaciones: la Honeymoon Suite, especial para parejas y la Golden Villa, aún mas espaciosa y exclusiva. Ambas habitaciones nos fascinaron, en especial por su comodidad y espectaculares vistas al mar. Alguna vez escucharon hablar de las “piscinas infinitas” de Grecia? Son aquellas que parecen sacadas de postales. Se funden con el mar de fondo generando la ilusión de estar nadando en el océano! Se imaginan tener una en su propia habitación? Ah! Y un jacuzzi? SI, leyeron bien! Les aseguro que es una experiencia inolvidable bañarse en una de ellas disfrutando el sol caer sobre las aguas del mar Egeo!

Quieren saber acerca del desayuno? Nos pareció espectacular. Había opciones para todos los gustos: desde delicias dulces (los que me conocen saben que tengo debilidad por eso…) , opciones saludables y variedad de especialidades saladas de excelente calidad (con esto último el marido estaba en su salsa!).

Por otro lado, para nosotros que nos gusta explorar los lugares a donde vamos, la ubicación es un factor importante a la hora de decidir. Nos encantó que a pesar de estar ubicado a 500 metros del centro tuviera un servicio de Shuttle incluido durante las 24 hs. Como si todo esto no fuera suficiente, el hotel cuenta con un spa completo! Así que como pueden imaginarse, luego de estar recorriendo y cargando nuestras cámaras durante todo el dia, el relax del spa por la tarde era un verdadero placer.

Los atardeceres alli son algo mágico y merecen un punto aparte. Como les contaba antes, el hotel tiene vistas privilegiadas del mar y el centro de Mykonos, lo cual garantiza un espectáculo único. (Ver timelapse) En esta hora del día, el ambiente se torna especial en el bar lounge junto a la piscina: Un DJ acompaña con buena música mientras se disfruta de un buen trago con appetizers.

En cuanto a la decoración, es un hotel minimalista y moderno inspirado en el estilo simple, blanco y chic que tanto caracteriza a Mykonos. Un dato de color, es que el hotel ganó varios premios por su decoración excepcional: en Cavo Tagoo los detalles marcan la diferencia 😉  Hablando de eso, hay que resaltar que el personal siempre estuvo pendiente de que todo fuera perfecto con la misión de que disfrutáramos al máximo nuestros días en la isla. Sin dudas lo lograron. Gracias Cavo Tagoo por esta experiencia inolvidable! Esperamos volver pronto!
