As featured in Luxury Travel: All-time Favourites
One of our handpicked hotel recommendations for 2017

Part way between Aghios Nikolaos and Elounda lies this private beach resort hotel, blending airy contemporary design with high-end amenities. Accommodation ranges from bungalow-style rooms and suites to villas with private pools. Relax in the Poseidon Spa, with its full complement of Turkish baths, saunas and hydrojet bubble loungers, or visit the Blue Room rooftop terrace for spa treatments with exquisite sunset views. Enjoy watersports by the private sandy beach including scuba diving and boat excursions, whilst the kids are being entertained in their own club. For inventive cocktails, meet up at the Bonaccia Jetty Bar by the water’s edge. Dining is a pleasurable dilemma, with no fewer than five restaurants to select from, among them Labyrinthos for local and international cuisine, Blue Bay for Mediterranean and Asian dishes and The Greek Kafenion for innovative Cretan specialities served to the sound of live music.

A luxury family hotel

Overlooking the beautiful Mirabello Bay, the rooms and pool suites at this contemporary-styled hotel stand out for their sweeping coastal views.

A firm favourite, most kids will be in the water at the safe and sheltered private blue-flag beach. Families can also base themselves at the children’s pool where there’s shade and grass. If your water babies still can’t get enough swim time, opt for a suite with a private pool. Immerse yourself in local life – we suggest taking a family cookery course and discover the secrets of Cretan cuisine at Kitchen Lab, learn about art in Argonaftis – the owners’ private art exhibition – or travel back through the history of Crete and explore local traditions in the hotel’s Cretan Museum. Younger ones will enjoy film showings in the movie lounge along with varied crafts and organised games at the kids’ club, whilst teenagers can try diving or waterskiing. End your holiday with a ‘desert island’ picnic or a sunset cruise.
