To really bring your Grecian dreams to life, imagine your next getaway at a luxurious seaside resort, elevated with my exclusive VIP perks. Catch the early flight and take advantage of complimentary early check-in, delighting in your personalized in-room welcome gift. Head straight to the pool for lunch with a bright summer cocktail, paid for with your resort credit. Wake up to a colorful (and complimentary) room service breakfast with the impossibly perfect view from your upgraded accommodations.

IF YOU'RE DAYDREAMING OF CHANIA

STAY AT: DOMES NORUZ CHANIA, AUTOGRAPH COLLECTION

Chania, a city on the Greek Island of Crete, is a sunny, gorgeous alternative to Mykonos and Ibiza, as it combines numerous bars and night clubs, an urban resort setting and excellent cuisine. With over four thousand years of history, this destination is beautifully distinct from other Greek cities, thriving with tasteful tavernas, Old Town wanderers and fashion-forward boutiques. If you’re a cosmopolitan new-age traveler, the lively Domes Noruz Chania captures everything you could want: resident and host DJs, mixology classes, an open-air gym, modern design, and an overall atmosphere of wellness and relaxation.

Private perks: $100 resort credit, complimentary daily breakfast, early check-in/late check-out, complimentary upgrade, and more.

IF YOU'RE DAYDREAMING OF MYKONOS

STAY AT: SANTA MARINA, A LUXURY COLLECTION RESORT

To experience the mesmerizing magic of Mykonos, one must choose their hotel wisely—perhaps one where you can savour the glamorous Greek lifestyle on the island’s only private sandy beach. In the most fashionable and sophisticated setting, the Aegean interpretation of the world-famous Buddha-Bar lifestyle experience is combined with Mykonos Social, Jason Atherton’s first restaurant in the Mediterranean. Whether you cozy up in an intimate guest room or share an expansive villa, your beach-chic interiors feature modern, natural luxury, opening to balconies with hypnotic Aegean views.

Private perks: $100 resort credit, complimentary daily breakfast, early check-in/late check-out, complimentary upgrade, and more.

If You're Daydreaming Of Paros

STAY AT: PARILIO, A MEMBER OF DESIGN HOTELS

Paros is a place where unspoiled natural beauty and the slowed rhythms of Cycladic life prevail. I recommend a stay at Parilio, where you’ll be conveniently located on the island’s northeastern coast, between stunning Kolympithres beach and the jewel town of Naoussa, gazing at Naoussa Bay. By the way, the name Parilio is derived from ‘Paros’ and the Greek word for the sun ‘Ilios’, fitting for this 33-suite retreat characterized by amber-hued fields, araucaria trees, and of course, the sparkling blue waters of the Aegean Sea. The minimalistic pool, with impressive rock formations, embodies the hotel’s reverence for natural stone and geometric forms. Your poolside experience will be filled with refreshing and creative cocktails whether you unwind by day or night.

Private perks: $100 dining credit, complimentary daily breakfast, early check-in/late check-out, complimentary upgrade, and more.

IF YOU'RE DAYDREAMING OF SANTORINI

STAY AT: GRACE HOTEL, AUBERGE RESORTS COLLECTION

If it’s ultimate romance, indulgence and isolation you’re after, you’ll find it 300 meters above Santorini’s Caldera, a sheltered deep basin formed by a sunken volcano centuries ago. From its setting on the Imerovigli hillside, Grace Santorini offers unparalleled views of famed Aegean sunsets over the Cyclades. In an already awe-inspiring setting, guests are invited to scenic evenings with live music, hosted regularly at the resort’s Santoro restaurant and iconic Champagne Lounge, nestled 363 meters above sea level. You’ll never forget this gastronomic journey of tastes and sounds under the stars.
