Traditional full-service Hotel or self-catering Villa in Mykonos?
Are you the type of person who takes forever to make a decision, when it comes to planning holidays? With so much choice for travel around the globe, sometimes it isn’t easy to even narrow down a location; let alone which property to choose. Hotels have many positive aspects and can be great for certain situations, such as when travelling alone or for business. However, when it comes to your once-in-a-year holiday in Mykonos, we think that if you choose a Villa in Mykonos you have an endless list of benefits for you and the family; from feeling right at home to the privacy you will get, they are the obvious winners of the battle.
And here are 10 reasons why villa in Mykonos is a better choice:
1. 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 in Mykonos offer an individualized kind of luxury unavailable at large hotels. Each villa 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.
2. Top Privacy and Homeliness
A holiday is to kick back and relax, and typically Villas, as a Villa in Mykonos, 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.
3. 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.
5. Peace and Quiet
Tranquility is what a Villa in Mykonos 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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!
9. Villas in Mykonos 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.
