melian hotel in milos, greece

today i’m continuing our look back at our time in milos!  we stayed at the amazing melian boutique hotel and spa in pollonia, and i’ve written about some of the things i loved best about it after the jump…

pollonia is a charming little fishing town and the melian hotel is just a short walk away from the town’s center where the older locals spend their days hanging out with their friends at the seaside restaurants.  i imagine they’re chatting about their families, politics, local gossip and how strange the tourists are. pollonia is just as you’d imagine a small fishing town on a sweet little greek island to be, it’s slow paced and delicious.

the rooms that we stayed in were comfortable with modern amenities and both had patios that faced the sea. we slept with the windows open every night and feel asleep to the sound of waves and a cool sea breeze. we slept like a dream.   

i’m big on hotel toiletries, not big in the way that i hoard them to bring home with me (most of the time) but big in that i believe they can make my stay 25% better. the melian has really incredible smelling products- and their basil lemon body wash made the showers feel even more luxurious and special!

we had this for breakfast every morning, usually on our patio: fruit, and a basket of fresh baked goods, including my favorite chocolate croissant (oh how i miss starting the day off with those little treats)! and i can’t mention breakfast without mentioning the sweet and amazing group of people that work at the hotel and made sure our every need and wish was met.  it was some of the best service i’ve ever experienced, they made our stay.

those last two are just a couple snaps of the hotel!  i wish we had taken more but we were too busy soaking it all in and pinching ourselves. still, i hope this provided a little peek into our incredible stay at the melian!  *this may read like a sponsored post but sadly i’m in no way affiliated with the hotel, i just like to gush about their amazing little corner of the world. and hopefully it wil inspire some of you to visit!

    I love Korres products, especially the basil lemon body wash. They have a great skin care line as well, especially for those of us who are sensitive to chemical sunscreen.

    If you want a little scented reminder of your trip you can get Korres body wash at Sephora.

    Because of this, we’re staying here for part of our honeymoon in July! It cannot be here soon enough! I hope to come home with wonderful memories and photos a fraction as gorgeous as yours :) If you happen to have restaurant recommendations, the name of the catamaran captain, or any other tips, I’d be thrilled to have them! Thanks Sarah!
