A Mediterranean Marvel in Mykonos

Cavo Tagoo, Mykonos

On an island cluttered with luxurious resorts, Cavo Tagoo is easily the trendiest and most notable. Less than two miles north of Mykonos Town in Greece and merely five minutes from the island's vibrant party scene, this whitewashed property hugs a cliffside overlooking the Aegean Sea. Its multi-level windows and terraces offer one spectacular view after another. In conjunction with lavish amenities and a picturesque ambiance, it’s no surprise that this five-star paradise has become a favorite for prominent celebrities and Instagram influencers.


Renovated in 2007 and designed by

owner-architect Paris Liakos, Cavo Tagoo pairs milky white surfaces and Mediterranean tones with an understated aesthetic. A consistent white, grey and gold palette contrasts against the bold blue of the sea and sky. The lobby itself welcomes guests with exposed rustic stone, thatched ceilings, modern slipcover furnishings and gold mosaic walls. Even the sneakered staff members are dressed in total white while delivering drinks to an open-air dining terrace above the infinity pool. The resort also features cheeky typography, Greek-to-English dictionary entries printed on bathroom doors and metal sculptures that bookend a stone fireplace.


Other hotel accommodations include a chic boutique with such luxury brands as Diesel, Hugo Boss and Twenty-29, as well a tranquil spa with a steam bath and sauna. The dedicated concierge service guarantees a once-in-a-lifetime experience of the island, consisting of everything from yacht rentals ideal for sunset cruises, helicopter charters, access to hiking and climbing excursions on the rocky cliffs, photoshoot arrangements and private tours of Santorini.


Suites & Villas

The glamorous Cavo Tagoo hosts sixty-nine rooms, suites and villas, each more lavish than the next. Every whitewashed residence includes its own plunge pool or hot tub, balconies, and breathtaking views of the azure waters. Most feature gold accents and refined wood floors. The iconic Cave Pool Suite, one of the most impressive aspects of the resort, is a modest, forty-square-meter abode featuring a sizable pool and lounge area encompassed by a rock tunnel.

However, the three-bedroom Diamond Villa is Cavo Tagoo's foremost residence. At 250 square-meters, its easily the most spacious room in the hotel, hosting up to six guests on its king-sized beds with lush Simmons mattresses. Sleek, wooden floors and an exposed thatched roof comprise the living room, dining room and bedrooms, while an exotic, opal-shaped jacuzzi sits at the center of the bathroom. A wide, floor-to-ceiling window suffuses the villa with natural light and opens to a private terrace with lounge beds, a huge infinity pool and a panoramic sea vista. House wine and fruit baskets are also supplied upon arrival.


ZUMA Restaurant

Among its many splendors, Cavo Tagoo has the distinct privilege of hosting the renowned ZUMA Restaurant, which returned to the "Island of Winds" this May. The renowned, seasonal pop-up chain brings its contemporary Japanese cuisine to an upscale, alfresco setting overlooking stunning seascapes and sunsets. The sophisticated dining area borders a sprawling infinity pool and lounge space with sun beds, affording a convenient nap following your meal. It serves a variety of authentic yet non-traditional dishes from its three kitchens: the sushi counter, main kitchen and robata grill. Through an alluring and comprehensive menu, ZUMA prioritizes quality ingredients, intense flavors and simple presentation.
