It’s been a while since I had a chance to update everyone on my travels and inspirations, but if you follow me on Instagram, you’re already up to date with my latest adventures. 🙂 I had an incredible summer – and hope you did too! – and one of my favorite parts was the trip to Kos Island in Greece. I wanted to share some photos with you and write a review of Mitsis Blue Domes, the 5-star resort I stayed in. Hope you’ll find the information helpful for your future travels, and I hope the photos will inspire you to visit this part of Greece.
Mitsis Blue Domes is an all-inclusive resort and one of the 17 Mitsis hotels throughout Greece. What impressed me the most – besides the most friendly staff I had the pleasure to meet – was the attention to detail at every step, inside and out. Our room was stunning, overseeing the whole resort and the beach; I found myself lounging on the balcony many times. As we stepped inside the room, there was a welcoming gift: a small bottle of red wine. Of course, it was time to celebrate right away! 😉
My favorite spot for a good evening start was the main bar surrounded by pools. There I found the bartenders to be very entertaining and friendly, always ready to serve you a cocktail of your choice. I had a passion for their signature cocktail called “Blue Domes” – which was blue, you guessed! – and soon after, all of the staff in charge of serving drinks were bringing this to me without even asking for it. Hilarious! 😀
The food was plenty and I must say, a very good variation of dishes. The choices were between the main buffet restaurant, which had an amazing view from above, a few smaller cafeteria-type places (creperie, burger restaurant, sushi, etc.), and four a-la-carte restaurants that required reservations in advance. We tried three out of four: Greek, Italian, Mexican… We skipped Asian since we didn’t book it in advance. All dinners were as good as we thought they would be, and had an amazing pool and sea view every time. I was also really impressed with their choice of decor at the restaurants, as well as throughout the resort.
There was plenty of entertainment for everyone as well, but my favorite spot for the evening was the main lobby bar where they had live music in the evening while enjoying my Blue Domes cocktail. 😉 The whole resort seemed surreal when the night came and the pools were lit in blue, and the outside hotel building was also lit in different colors. Unfortunately, the first few days we got there was very windy and impossible to stay outside at night, but it got better after few days and got to enjoy some beautiful summer nights.
Oh, and the beach you’re asking? Beautiful, apart from being a bit rocky. It didn’t bother me, the blue hue of the sea was taking all my attention as I am madly in love with all things beach. 🙂 You’ll get to see more of it in my next post, as well as my choice of outfits through the resort during this trip.
My final notes? The resort definitely exceeded my expectations. Everyone there went above and beyond to create a perfect stay and accommodate every need and requirement. The cleanliness of the entire resort and attention to detail, the food, and general atmosphere made us feel special. Although all these factors are important for the comfort of our stay, I must admit that the friendly staff was a huge bonus and I was impressed all the way! Special thanks to Inna and Jimmy who played an important role in making our stay so memorable! Till next time, Mitsis Blue Domes! 😉
