A Dreamy Stay By The Water

With Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas and Elounda Bay Palace

If you find yourself feeling calmer and less stressed when you’re overlooking water, it’s not just you. In recent years there have been several scientific studies that have measured participants’ heart rates and blood pressure and concluded that water categorically boosts our mood! 

So why would you not choose a waterfront location on your next holiday? That’s why we recommend these two fabulous resorts in northeastern Crete where you can immerse yourself in the full tranquillity of unobstructed sea views. 
The five-star Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas and Elounda Bay Palace are both members of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World. Interconnected through extensive, shaded walking paths among gorgeous tropical gardens, together they provide plenty of choice so that you can have the holiday of your dreams. 

You’ll find both classically decorated and modern accommodation to suit your dreams and requirements, from one-bedroom bungalows to vast family villas that hold several bedrooms, a separate living space and kitchenette, and a large private swimming pool that sits right on the water’s edge. 

All of the villas offer serene private terraces and gardens so that you can retreat into your own quiet space whenever you wish. 

Between both properties in this charming and historic part of Crete there are four Blue Flag awarded beaches with sunbeds and umbrellas, so you can change your view each day. Dive into a range of watersports, including snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, water-skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, and jet-skiing. 

You can spend most of your time in and on the water, whether you’re tucking into delicious cuisine or having a drink at one of the waterfront restaurants and bars, dipping into the sea for some watersports, or enjoying a yoga or pilates class to epic sea views.

Find Your Waterfront Stay

From your delightfully fresh and airy room interiors you can escape into the sunlight of your private outdoor space. With glass-fronted balconies that perch by the water’s edge, you get the feeling that you’re floating on water. As you gaze at the vast sea before you, don’t be surprised as your shoulders begin to drop. This is your time to fully let go.

Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas

If you’re travelling with your better half then we suggest you opt for the waterfront Ambassador Bungalow Suite, or the Premium Waterfront Junior Suite with its own private pool at Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas. 

What’s more, if you wish to unwind with a massage then the Chenot Spa is showered in epic sea views from its heady penthouse position. 

This is al fresco living at its best. In the Bungalow Suite you can sit out in your spacious and beautifully furnished outdoor living space, complete with a wall-mounted television for a balmy open-air film night! 

Families, meanwhile, can spread out in a three-bedroom Family Villa or a two-bedroom Grand Villa Sea View, which both feature private heated pools. 

Elounda Bay Palace

At Elounda Bay Palace, we suggest you choose the Sea View Deluxe Bungalow with its gorgeous sea views for a holiday sprinkled with romance. 

But if you’re planning to bring your family along then you can opt for a Sea View Deluxe Hotel Suite, or a Mediterranean Villa, complete with a private pool.
