Mykonos is expensive. Some consider it unapproachable. But it is a Diva, and it is in beautiful Greece, and it is whitewashed, and, this Summer it will be affordable as prices for accommodation (luxury villa in Mykonos , Airbnb, etc.) became very attractive, unlike other years where the simple law of “demand and supply” led to the high, sometimes unaffordable cost of holidays in Mykonos.
Have you ever wondered – and especially if you are traveling with friends or family – what is best for you when it comes to choosing a vacation on an island like Mykonos which is one of the five most attractive destinations on the planet along with Ibiza, Morocco and the Caribbean islands.
In a luxury complex or hotel the cost for a couple starts from 150 euros and reaches a four-digit number per day! At the same time, luxury villas in Mykonos accommodating 6 to 12 people cost significantly less.
Yes. It’s simple mathematics. If in the “high season” a lux room costs 500 euros a day, the cost per person is 250 euros. In a luxury villa in Mykonos with a private pool, the price is around 800 euros per day and accommodates 10 people or more in bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, costing less than 80 euros per day!
In addition, at a time when the world is battling the battle Covid-19, the villas are far ahead when it comes to safety, as. They do not have common areas with the other residents of the complex or hotel:
- They do not have a reception, big common lobbies or breakfast buffets for all
- They do not have a central air conditioning system that distributes air to all rooms through common ducts, rather than individual AC units per room
- The swimming pool is not shared. It is 100% private
- Sheets and towels are disinfected and wrapped by piece in nylon bags
- Mykonos Luxury villas provide disinfection certificate upon each arrival
- Air conditioning filters are disinfected at each departure
- The check-in at the villa is contactless; only the customers enter the villa with a sterile key handed to them along with the sanitization certificates upon arrival
Here are 10 more reasons why a villa in Mykonos is the ideal choice for your holiday!
i. Luxury and 360 view of the Aegean
Private villas in Mykonos, these days, provide stunning luxury facilities and amenities. From sea-looking infinity pools to all kinds of tech gadgets, or from outdoor BBQ sets or Jacuzzis to top-notch brands of toiletries, Villas offer an individualized kind of luxury unavailable at large hotels. Each villa in Mykonos is unique, with a distinctive style and a personality of its own. Hotels just can’t provide that individualized kind of experience. And what’s more, even if you book a sea view room, you will never be able to overlook the deep blue Aegean Sea at its full glory, like you will when sitting on the Villa terrace.
ii. Top Privacy and Homeliness
A holiday is to kick back and relax, and typically Villas are private homes where your neighbors are not on the other side of the wall, as in a hotel. Your Villa’s pool, beachfront, terrace, etc. are not shared. And your parking spot is right there. In a Villa you can use every facility at any time you want, without having to wait for your turn. It may sound like selfishness, but it’s not! It’s your holiday, your time and your family.
iii. Plenty of Space
There’s no place like home. And even if you book a spacious hotel suite or a warm, welcoming and homey hotel room, you will end up spending your private time in a few square meters. Luxury villas are generally bigger than all but the largest hotel suites. A villa gives approximately more than 150sqm than a hotel, where you can stretch out to your heart’s content. In comparison to a villa, hotel rooms could be a virtual shoebox, as they supply an average of 30 sqm. Especially if you have children, the extra space can be much needed. More space is a major contribution to having a stress-free holiday.
Yes, Hotels come with yumee buffet breakfasts, but how many times did we miss those hot croissants because –especially on a holiday- we didn’t want to sacrifice our precious sleep! Villas may come with a private chef, who will prepare the menu you design, on the time you want it. At our Villas, housecleaning, change of linen and pool maintenance is daily and, upon request, you can have a private chauffer or a live-in housekeeper and babysitter. You get a staff of 3 to 4 people to cater to the needs of your group of 8 to 10. That’s a rate of nearly 1 staff person per 2 guests. Now, think about how’s that rate going to most hotels and you’ll understand why private rentals are in a worldwide boom. The level of personalized service available at private Villas is something that hotels just can’t compete with
v. Peace and Quiet
Tranquility is what a Villa is about. You’ll have the entire property to yourself and you can be yourself and nobody will bother you! No matter how luxurious a hotel is, you will always be sharing its facilities with lots of strangers. A private Villa comes with a private pool just for you and your friends. There is a reason why celebrities always choose private Villas. Other than the noise of a scooter once in a while, you rarely hear any noise throughout your stay. Well, except for your screeching kids jumping in the pool.
vi. Day and Night Private Pool
This is a big win for the Villa. In big hotels a place by the pool is always a battle – in a villa not at all! You can have your sun loungers next to our own private pool and move around from sun to shade depending on our mood. You can hang out the wet pool towels and swimsuits overnight outdoors, and leave the toys stayed in a nice pile by the pool. All you have to think about is the sunscreen. You may stay there and enjoy the sunset, without someone –in the case of hotels- asking you to leave as the pool area needs to be prepared for the dinner of 200 guests. And how fantastic, fun or… romantic is it to use the pool under the starry summer sky.
vii. Kids can be kids
You can be much calmer at a Villa with your family and friends, than you would have been at a large hotel. There’s no shushing the kids in fear that they would wake up the people in the room next door, and you don’t have to tell them not to run through the lobby. The kids will find board games to play and a couple of balls for the pool. Not to mention plenty of outdoor room for their cartwheels in the sunshine. Also, our Villas come with portable cots and a highchair at no extra cost for the little ones.
viii. Healthy meals
Villas have a large fully equipped kitchen where our private chefs can cook for you and your friends quality meals. Our private Chefs know the island of Mykonos very well and get fresh ingredients specifically selected according to their guests’ tastes to cook for you everything you like, from no calorie laden buffet breakfast to delicious BBQ meals. We can also stock up your fridge whenever you want us to, with selected groceries and beverages of your choice. And let’s not forget the most glorious local summer fruits you get to have when eating local!
ix. Villas are pet-friendly
How many hotels do you know that allow pets? Your dog is just as much as a family member as anyone else, and you should be able to take them along to be a part of the memories. Our villas are proud to welcome pets, which can save you the stress of missing your furry friend.
Last but not least is what might actually be the strongest point when it comes to Villas vs Hotels: the price! Let’s face it, luxury hotels in Mykonos can get pricey, and a lot of them charge differently, depending on demand, season, number of persons per room etc. Renting a Villa can be extremely cost effective compared to booking a hotel room, especially when your party is big enough to fill all the rooms in the Villa as the cost gets spread among more people. It just doesn’t matter how luxurious a private Villa is, it will still offer a better deal.
Here, at Mykonos Luxury, our Villas give you all the above and more.
We are sure to present you with a home away from home, in a relaxed and comfortable environment, for you to enjoy a sip of a cool beverage at the pool terrace or lounging in your Villa’s living room.
