There are two places in Mediterranean where the visitor can find everything needed for a glamorous and relaxing holiday: Mykonos in Greece and Ibiza in Spain. They both offer an extremely high level of services and amenities and are picked by the most famous international celebrities for their summer vacations
Mykonos – luxury accommodation, unique architecture, sandy beaches, vivid daylife & nightlife. Mykonos is a small Greek island in the middle of Aegean Sea. The weather is warm, the sea is turquoise and the beaches are sandy. It is considered to be the “party island” of Greece, as wild parties take place everywhere – from the small alleys to the hot nightclubs.
Accommodation in Mykonos is usually lavish and cozy. Many five star hotels have rooms and suites decorated in style, offering the best services and all the amenities a celebrity would wish for. Amenities and services in 5 star hotels usually include private swimming pools and Jacuzzis, gourmet dining, limousine or helicopter transportations, spas, private chefs and many more.
But the most luxurious and glamorous accommodation you can find on the island is Mykonos Villas. Villa Mykonos has almost everything a 5 star hotel suite has and, additionally, it offers its guests more privacy and space.
Both in Mykonos Town and the small villages you will find the unique Cycladic architecture. Houses are like white cubes put next to each other and the well maintained narrow alleys are paved with stones. Mykonos has many sandy beaches, some are more organized and crowded and others are more serene. The most famous beaches in Mykonos are Paradise, Super Paradise, Paraga, Psarou, known also as “party beaches”, Agios Ioannis, Ornos, Platis Gialos, Aghia Anna, Agrari, Elia, Kapari, Megali Ammos, Aghios Stefanos, Choulakia, Aghios Sostis, Panormos, Ftelia, Myrsini, Fokos, Merchia, Lia, Kalafatis, Kalo Livadi.
Life in Mykonos is busy and glamorous. During the day you can go shopping at the biggest brands boutiques, have a cocktail, a coffee or a meal in one of the many bars and restaurants, visit galleries and museums or just relax on a sun lounger at your favorite sandy beach. For your night entertainment, choose one of the famous clubs or enjoy the delicious gourmet dishes in a fine dining restaurant
Ibiza – luxury accommodation, nature, big famous clubs. At the opposite end of Mediterranean you will find the other hot summer destination: Ibiza. Ibiza is also an island, it is 5 times bigger than Mykonos and its three largest settlements are Ibiza Town, Sant Antoni de Portmany and Santa Eulària des Riu. The island belongs to the Balearic chain of islands, which includes more than 50 islands, and together with Formentera are called “Pityuses” meaning “Pine Islands” in Greek.
Ibiza also offers intense nightlife and luxurious hotels or villas for your stay.
The best 5 star hotels on the island are:
– Atzaró at Santa Eularia, a luxury agro tourism hotel
– The Giri Residence boutique hotel at San Juan village
– Ses Pitreras at San Agustín, with special views to the sunset
– Can Curreu spa hotel at Santa Eularia
– Grand Palladium Palace Ibiza Resort and Spa in Sant Jordi de ses Salines
Ibiza has a breathtaking natural beauty. Big areas of the island have become UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Some of its beaches have kept their serene character despite the touristic development of the island. A perfect spot to enjoy the sunset is Es Vedra, with a beautiful beach, romantic restaurants and a wonderful view to the wild rocky formations in the sea.
Ibiza’s nightlife is concentrated in Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni. In both places you will find a lot of night clubs, bars and restaurants. Some of the hottest clubs in Ibiza right now are:
– Amnesia and Privilege, both located near San Rafael, in the middle of the island
– Destino at Talamanca beach
– Es Paradis and Eden, seaside clubs in Sant Antoni
– DC-10 near the airport of the island
– Pacha and Heart, both near the marina of Ibiza City
– Ushuaïa on Playa d’en Bossa beach
– Space Ibiza in San Rafael
Apart from night clubbing on the ground, a new trend is becoming very popular in Ibiza’s nightlife: boat parties. They can be organized by big clubs or individuals and they are gaining more and more fans, as dancing in the middle of the sea is – at least – an interesting way of entertainment.
