ONE NIGHT ONLY CAN BE ENOUGH. ONE NIGHT ONLY CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE THROUGH DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW. SOMETIMES WE JUST NEED ONE PERFECT NIGHT OF REST TO WAKE UP TO A NEW WORLD. OR SOMETIMES WE JUST NEED BREATHTAKING VIEWS, INCREDIBLE FOOD AND THE BEST COMPANY AND ANY PLACE CAN BE THE BEST OF THE WORLD. ONE NIGHT ONLY AT CAVO TAGOO SANTORINI WAS ENOUGH TO FELL IN LOVE.
It is our last night in Santorini. We decided to wake up really early to prepare things to move to this new hotel we wanted to discover. It was just a few minutes from the place where we were before and on the way to the airport. The morning was fresh and windy like it knew we were leaving really soon but we wanted to make it last until the very end minute and frame everything forever inside the amazing Santorini painting. We heard about this place like it was the ultimate idyllic background for your summer images and we had to see it by ourselves. A very clean and white entrance, which is very common in Santorini, but this one was particular white and clean. A big massive wood door with a vintage look separated us from the first contact with the welcoming desk. We just noticed at first minute this place had inspirations on the island but in a very minimal and design way speaking. Like each corner was made for pictures and once you arrive you know that even if you are not the best photographer you will have the best pictures. The welcoming desk is on the main floor that leads you to a stairs where you will find the true visual orgasm for social media, and also for your mind. Yes, a mind blowing view to this so deep blue ocean and to an infinite emerald blue swimming pool. Our eyes were mesmerized about the landscape. I remember to hear a chillout music on the background, the sun reflecting on the water and the sound of mojitos being made for us. For moments we totally forgot “the social media thing” and we just wanted to relax and enjoy the so modern place. From here you can see Oia, really small, far away, but insanely beautiful. One night only would be enough to enjoy the paradise so we decided to relax next to the pool while we were waiting for our room to be ready. Miguel is an addicted for architecture and design so he was walking around enjoying the place and structures. And I got his perfect shot. He was there standing and contemplating the ocean when I saw the perfect Santorini painting: the best company, the best view and one night only. Our room was ready. Time to discover a new cocoon and how to enjoy it.
Every time we travel rooms are a surprise, a curiosity. It is the place where you will rest and wake up to a new day and a new world. All Cavo Tagoo rooms are facing the ocean and you have the feeling you are the only one having that incredible view. A jacuzzi outside under a thatched ceiling was waiting for us.
Fresh fruits and white pillows were immaculate under the shadow and they knew how to please in this exceptional Santorini luxury accommodation. Rooms were particularly well decorated with different design pieces and the copper washbasins were a delight to the eyes. I mentioned already the best company and the best room for a perfect “one night only”. But we can not forget the best food. OVAC is the name of the guilty pleasure. With a unique view over the sea and a unique decoration, this place becomes a forest of “never tasted before” flavors and moments that remain forever. Flavors that enhance the island’s gastronomy in a blend with the best that Mediterranean food can offer. The low light, the choice of music, and the brightness of an Oia in the distance make this night one of the best ever. One night only was enough, or maybe was not? We walk to the room under infinite brilliant points in the sky, a clean sky where the night was warmer than the morning. Or maybe we just had the best wine of the island. Time to sleep and rest not under the starts but in the very comfortable bed to wake up to the new world where we never know what we can expect. Last day in Santorini means last breakfast. Time to discover what this mystical place has to offer and if it fits with everything else. I have to admit it was the lowest breakfasts service but we had the best porridge with rum of our entire life. I still can not describe how incredible it was eating it looking through the Aegean ocean. It could be One night only but also the first night of the rest of our lives. It is all about perspective and the way you decide to live it. Like Marc Jacobs said: if you can dream it, you can creat it and you can do it”
