Villa Crew is 2 private villas located on the magical island of Mykonos Greece.  With sugar cube architecture and contemporary white interiors, Villa Orpheus boasts one of the best sunsets on the entire island while Villa Eurydice has views of Ancient Delos and Mykonos town.  We loved the selection of specialty cocktails and cuisine…but best of all is when you get to meet Villa Crew owner Katie Friedman.  She always knows how to throw a good party!

The May Fair Hotel has been a staple of the London Hotel scene for years and it’s not surprising to see Keith Richards, Steven Tyler or Jon Bon Jovi having a cocktail in the lobby.  During fashion week, the May Fair is infested with models and celebrities…not a bad place to be.  We love London glamour with a rock and roll flavor — the May Fair is the place to see and be seen.

David Copperfield bought Musha Cay back in the 90s and developed his own private resort.  It is most famous for its private sandbar which is a 2 kilometer stretch that forms for only 2 kilometers a day.  Imagine running on this strip or have a drink with luxury service and your own chairs and umbrellas!  Musha Cay definitely tops our list of places to go.
