Crete Holidays - Greece
It has its share of pretty harbours, but Crete is handsome in a more dramatic muscular way. Its landscape is slashed with gorges, scoured with valleys and dominated at every turn by mountainous terrain. A car helps you nose inland to discover almost hidden villages and to visit Knossos, the largest and most impressive of the Minoan palaces, which reached its cultural peak over 3,000 years ago. Cretan hotels set a higher standard than the rest of Greece: we've gone for the best, so enjoy being spoilt.
Hotels in Crete
Many of the most impressive luxury hotels in Crete are in the picturesque region of Elounda. There's the elegance and impeccable service of Hotel Elounda Mare, the innovatively designed Domes of Elounda or the romantic, secluded suites of Blue Palace a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa. Those after a more contemporary feel should consider Elounda Bay Palace or the exceptional Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel, which offer breathtaking views across the Aegean Sea. Of the many spa options in the area, the Six Senses spa at Porto Elounda Deluxe Resort is regarded by many as the best spa in the world. On the other side of the island, the Minos Beach Art Hotel sits in a perfect waterfront location and is just 800 metres away from the lively town of Aghios Nikolaos.
