Minos Beach art hotel

Traditional architectural styles and minimalist, boho-chic interiors set the artistic tone of Minos Beach art hotel.

Perfect for art-lovers, the 5-star boutique hotel’s aromatic gardens are home to an outdoor gallery, exhibiting exceptional contemporary artworks by Greek and international artists from the collection of the G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation. 

Whether you opt for a waterfront bungalow or ultra-luxurious villa with private pool, all accommodation has its own distinctive charm. Wine fanatics will fall in love with La Cave de la Bouillabaisse, the new contemporary wine spot on the shores of Mirabello Bay.

Located within an hour of the unmissable Minoan Palace of Knossos, this is the perfect pairing to find out more about the history and culture of one of Crete’s best-loved islands. Be sure to check out the town of Heraklion too, home to fascinating museums, cultural points of interest and attractions including the CretAquarium.


Minos Palace hotel & suites

Situated atop a landscaped hill, Minos Palace hotel & suites gives you an island within an island feel. As the only hotel on Crete to boast 360° sea views, the unrivalled views of Mirabello Bay give you the perfect backdrop at all times.

The adults-only hotel comprises 149 rooms and offers a variety of sea view room categories, including the 61sqm Waterfall Suite with private pool for an extra special stay.

Savour Cretan delicacies and Mediterranean cuisine al fresco at the hotel’s incredible restaurants, then cool off with a signature cocktail.

A short drive up the coast brings you to the pretty port town of Plaka, where boat transfers frequently operate across to the island of Spinalonga, a spectacular island with a deep history that spans Byzantine conquerors, war strongholds and most recently, Europe’s last leper colony until 1962. Fans of Victoria Hislop’s acclaimed book The Island simply have to visit during their time in Crete.


Candia Park village

Candia Park’s colourful village square setting, picturesque neighbourhood, central clock tower and traditional Kafenion, are built to resemble an authentic Cretan village for you to experience a heavenly slice of Crete.

Ideal for families, days are filled strolling the calm resort’s perfumed gardens, enjoying a refreshing swim at the hotel’s pools and unwinding at the peaceful private beach.

6 different family room categories mean families of all types are spoilt for choice. To top it off, children up to 11 years sharing their room with 2 people stay for free.

Aside from Candia Park’s gorgeous tree-lined beach, Crete is home to a plethora of incredible beaches and shorelines. Almyros Beach is a stunning sandy beach to the south of the nearby town of Agios Nikolaos. Make a day of it by exploring the winding streets filled with charming shops and eateries, before relaxing on the soft sand and let the sound of the waves whisk you away.
