Some say there is no point in competing with the natural beauty of the Cyclades—fortunately Cavo Tagoo’s owner does not subscribe to this theory. Thanks to his vision and help from the architect Paris Liakos, Cavo Tagoo Mykonos in Greece stands out with originality and chic.
This boutique hotel is a stunning blend of cosmopolitan sophistication and barefoot island chic—and more of a work of art, designed not to overwhelm the eye but simply to be worthy of the spectacular views over the Mykonos town.
Organic by design
The hotel is set into a cliff and blended with the natural rock, which is maintained here and there as part of the décor. The soft curves of white buildings, stones covering the roofs, and materials used: wood, stone and bamboo connect Cavo Tagoo organically with its surroundings.
The crisp, energizing design complements the beautiful view over the city.
Individually decorated and designed, all guestrooms and suites embody a contemporary, minimalist look, balanced by the traditional aesthetics of the Cyclades.
Against the soft lines and traditional colors (subtle blue, rose, fuchsia), the architect set shiny marble floors, designer furniture, and huge beds, elegant, spacious bathrooms, large balconies and private pools in some apartments.
Bar and restaurant
Tagoo Kitchen restaurant specializes in contemporary Greek cuisine, but there is also a sushi bar. Lounge Bar, located on the side of an infinity pool has a tropical fish aquarium built into its counter—one of the hotel’s idiosyncratic features.
Lounge chairs around the infinity pool are comfortable, some shaded with canvas roofs, offering respite from the acute Greek sun. In the evening, changing color lights illuminate the swimming pool.
