Plant Based Hotel to Open in Mykonos

100% Plant Based Hotel Due To Open Summer 2020

Koukoumi Hotel is due to open this summer in Mykonos, Greece. The hotel has positioned itself as a go-to health and fitness destination for existing plant-based eaters & those who wish to try the lifestyle. While the ongoing coronavirus situation may delay the opening, the hotel is looking to be a go-to destination once travel restrictions are lifted.

Plant Based Travel Options In Ireland & Overseas

The opening of Koukoumi hotel adds to an extensive array of plant based travel options in Ireland, Europe & around the world. While it is unclear when these destinations will be operational again, many are planning for the near future when tourism restarts and travel resumes. Plant based travel company Vegan Cruises is still tentatively taking bookings for its cruises and destination holidays in France, Greece, Mayanmar & more.

In Ireland, The Cliffs Of Moher Retreat Center offers retreats & stays with full plant-based dining options when requested. Other retreats are available throughout the country, generally mixing yoga with plant-based eating. With uncertainty surrounding international travel in the near future, it is encouraging to see the options available within Ireland. You can see the yoga retreats available in Ireland here.
