We may not be able to travel at the moment, but we’re now dreaming of our next holiday to Greece as the first, and only, 100% vegan-friendly hotel in Greece is set to open its doors on Mykonos island this summer.
Located in the village of Ano Mera, the four-star Koukoumi Boutique Hotel, promises to bring both “a breath of fresh air” in hospitality and a “new life philosophy” to the island.
“We can enjoy life without harming animals, the environment, or ourselves. Everyone can try out an alternative and peaceful way of being, satisfying at the same time all their senses,” the hotel’s website reads.
Staying true to the Mykonian culture, the hotel is built in a traditional Myconian architectural style, whilst the suites are decorated in a neutral and calming boho-chic style using natural materials.
Guests can also enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep on one of the hotel’s coco-mat vegan mattresses or relax in a hot shower or the magnesium pool which is powered by solar water heaters.
If all of the above isn’t enough to attract your attention, the hotel’s website says that’s not all they offer.
The hotel also features Mediterranean-inspired, all-vegan dishes prepared by chef Angeliki Charami, with ingredients sourced from the hotel’s very own fruit and vegetable garden.
“A vegan diet is natural, cruelty-free, and complete. It is a sensible choice for a healthy lifestyle. Fruit, vegetables, legumes, grains, seeds, and nuts presented in balanced combinations contain all the necessary nutritious elements that cater for the needs of every person from every culture or religion,” the hotel’s website notes.
“Our exclusively vegan restaurant with our delicious recipes will challenge you to reconsider everything you believed about food before.”
The verdict will be out when the hotel opens during the Greek summer this year.
