As I have mentioned a few times in past posts, I love Athens. The food, the vibe, the street art, the history, the people, and now a days, I look forward to experiencing the new, fabulous boutique hotels that keep popping up. The new superstar that has stollen my attention is the super sexy sister hotel to Shila, the gorgeous Mona. Mona is not only a luxurious, special place to relax after a long day exploring, it acts as an inspiring art space where everything is available to purchase. As well, they have an incredible roof top space with an urban view of the famous Acropolis and a cool basement venue for private events and parties. This eight story, industrial factory from the 50’s, holds onto it’s roots with cement, metal, and stone, while bringing a sensuality and softness that evokes imagination and splendor. What a luxurious immersive experience that I will look forward to experiencing again.
1. midnight munchies:
Beside the incredible snacks that are already stocked in the suite; think artisan chocolates, herbed bread sticks, nuts, wine, etc… I imagine the creators of Mona will help orchestrate a mindnight munchie if that is what your heart desires just as they do at their sister hotel, Shila.
I opted for the gorgeous penthouse suite which had ample, luxurious space to spread out. Not to mention a fabulous terrace to take in the urban scene.
3. extra fluff:
Incredibly comfortable bed, pillows, and bedding. Plush towels & handcloths. I am also very fond of the slippers.
romantic lighting on dimmers, beautiful details of design from the furniture to the fixtures, plush towels, robes, slippers, the en suite snacks of artisan chocolates, nuts, bread sticks, wine, liquor, loose leaf tea, fresh coffee/espresso, organic local made body products
***I have to make a special mention here about the absolutely incredible breakfast that was included with our suite. Since my family and I are all plant based eaters, the incredible staff went well beyond our wildest dreams to deliver us each morning the most scrumptious, special breakfast.
Of all my travels I have never come across body products in my hotel room that I have loved more. Mona (and of course Shila) collaborated and curated the products exclusively for the hotel with the Greek organic brand, Aegli. The combination of the Mediterranean Lavender and Greek basil stole my heart. I’m obsessed. Unfortunately you can’t snag them as they took the high road of being ecologically conscious and stocked all the tolietries in glass pump bottles to use at leasuire while there. They are for purchase though.
6. super secret sexy time:
No need for secret anything in this spacious, gorgeous suite.
no hidden fees
