When in Mykonos, stay at Cavo Tagoo

If you're looking for a hotel / villa in Mykonos, look no further! Cavo Tagoo, located in the Greek island of Mykonos, is THE BEST HOTEL! Not only the best hotel in Mykonos, but perhaps the best in the world.

I was invited to spend several nights in this heaven and I surely wasn’t disappointed.

The outstanding, friendly service and carefully crafted luxury that you can enjoy in every room make for the perfect stay in Mykonos.

The hotel comprises 80 individually decorated and designed luxury rooms and suites, each in subtle blue, rose, or fuchsia nuances, with stunning views over the Aegean sea. Cavo Tagoo Spa offers relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatments and massages, for another relaxing moment.

Each room is carefully decorated, and feature either a private jacuzzi or a private pool. I can’t seem to think of any other hotel in the world that offers private pool. All private sea view villas with pool of this Mykonos Town hotel in Greece come complete with a fabulous spacious terrace boasting cozy lounging areas.

The luxurious villas showcase contemporary, chic furnishings, excellent beauty products and unrivalled amenities ensuring the most amazing holiday in Mykonos.

Its aquarium pool lounge bar utilises wooden decks inspired by the Far East, where guests can sip cocktails and listen to changing mood music throughout the night which is what I did for a whole day while in Mykonos.

In a nutshell: the view, the individual pool/jacuzzi, the 38m saltwater infinity pool, accompanied by oversized day beds beside the pool, the Chanel books in each bedroom, the luxurious details, the delicious breakfast make your stay at Cavo Tagoo a fantastic experience. I highly recommend it.

British stars stand up to cancer

Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michelle Dockery, Gillian Anderson, Idris Elba, Eddie Redmayne, Anna Friel, Sheridan Smith and Steve Coogan have come together to support Stand Up To Cancer.

They’ve been part of an exclusive short film and set of photographs shot by renowned photographer and film director, Greg Williams.

The set of photographs accompanying the film also demonstrate the urgent message that we need to act now to accelerate new cancer treatments to UK patients and save more lives.

Greg Williams said: “It’s been an honour to be involved in the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. I lost my mum to cancer, something I feel strongly that no one should ever have to experience.  By making this film and collection of images, I’ve been able to help to bring Stand Up To Cancer’s vital work to the fore and help build momentum in the fight against cancer.”

Pierre Huyghe Retrospective at Museum Ludwig, Cologne

A new Pierre Huyghe show just opened at Hauser & Wirth in London and it's excellent.

Rosângela Rennó presented at Galeria Vermelho

To coincide with ArtRio, Galeria Vermelho presents an exhibition of new works by Rosângela Rennó, along with the installation As coisas estão no mundo [The Things Are in the World] by Marilá Dardot.

Consisting of six digital prints on pure silk organza, the series “Insólidos” [Unsolid] (2014) by Rosângela Rennó was created on the basis of four images. In the series, Rennó lends continuity to her research into the uncommon aspect of family photographs (which in 2005 gave rise to the series “Frutos Estranhos”), emphasizing the notion of how the perception of the images is altered when they are displayed on different and unusual supports.

“Insólidos” reveals images of mysterious places or of curious actions printed on various layers of pure silk organza, giving rise to a three-dimensional effect through superposition. The artist creates an interplay between transparency and opaqueness, between the flat surface of the traditional/analog photographs and the “photographic body,” which nowadays, in the digital era, is bereft of volume.
