A Cretan Escape at St. Nicolas Bay Resort

Holidays in Crete invite you to enjoy some well deserved relaxation. The east of Crete offers you the space to completely switch off as you'll find many resorts set next to long stretches of beach and scenic coves. If you fancy a day trip, then you’re in for a treat: this region is steeped in fascinating mythology. Visit legendary attractions such as the renowned and ancient Cave of Zeus with its impressive stalactites or to fascinating Minoean ruins, such as the Palace of Knossos near the island’s capital, Heraklion. Or, from Aghios Nikolaos or Elounda, take a boat to the fortified island of Spinalonga to unearth its unusual history.
Seeking some seclusion? Five-star St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas offers just that. Tucked within vast and lush gardens and coddled by breathtaking sea views from three sides, your soul will be soothed from the moment you arrive. Then there’s the attentive Greek hospitality to take care of your every need. 

When you’re not spending time in the new freshwater swimming pool or enjoying a complimentary flow yoga class or the new semi-open-air gym, sunbathe on warm, golden sands of the resort’s private Blue Flag beach. Deepen your relaxation further in the luxurious Poseidon Spa, which features unique retreat caves and an extensive treatment menu. And what’s the soundtrack to your stay? A gentle lullaby from the sweet tweeting of birds and lapping waves. 

St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas is ideal for honeymooners and old romantics alike. For extra seclusion, we recommend a suite with a private pool. 

If you’re bringing your family then choose one of the new luxurious suites that are specifically designed with youngsters in mind. There’s also a children’s section within one of the swimming pools and a dedicated teen’s club. The new playground immersed in nature invites children to embark on whimsical adventures, fostering a deep connection with the natural world. 

Should you wish to step out, wander or jog the path that snakes through the resort’s expansive olive grove and organic gardens, or venture into the lively tavernas and bars or chic boutiques in nearby Aghios Nikolaos. 

Evenings are an occasion with romantic candlelit dinners under the stars at the poolside Minotaure restaurant, which is made more magical with the tinkle of a pianist, live jazz band, or orchestra. Or you can savour Cretan seafood and fresh authentic cuisine at the outdoor BBQ kitchen, The Greek Kafenion.
