Elounda

Crete

Crete has inspired artists and poets throughout the ages with its breathtaking scenery, ancient culture and relaxed pace of life. A warm welcome awaits from the islanders who are renowned for their hospitality and joie de vivre.

The Resort

With shuttles operating between our hotels and the town centre, heading into Elounda for shopping or dinner couldn't be easier. Throughout the summer season, our team will be on hand to welcome you and provide you with all the support you need. They'll introduce you to the best experiences, recommend ideas and look after all the little details so you can focus on really enjoying your time away as a family.

Crete is extremely popular with our clients thanks to its warm and exceptionally dry climate; a warmth matched in the friendly welcome of the local people. With a tradition that embraces the simple pleasures in life, you'll be delighted by delicious food, friendly hospitality that is built around family, and a peace and calm that can be felt throughout your stay. Our properties are all exclusive enclaves where you'll really feel as if time is standing still thanks in part to the beautiful setting on the protected north eastern fringes of the island, and the seamless service that you'll enjoy from our in-resort team.

Our Hotels

We carefully select our hotels visiting each property and researching it in great detail before ever sending a client. Our hotels are hand-picked for their unparalleled accommodation, cuisine and facilities as well as first-class service.

Gastronomy

This picturesque fishing town is home to some of the best restaurants, that use quality fresh produce in their recipes to create some of the healthiest menus around. Below you'll find a selection of restaurants we believe no trip to Elounda is complete without a visit to.

Pelagos, Agios Nikolaos
Pelagos, Agios Nikolaos

Pelagos, Agios Nikolaos

Located in the larger of the local towns, Pelagos is set back and offers beautiful dishes on its secluded terrace. Stop here on your day out in Ag nik or make an evening of it and let the team babysit for you. Once again, all of the fish offered here is caught fresh the same morning.

The Ferryman, Elounda

The Ferryman, Elounda

Set on the waterfront, The Ferryman is a lovely taverna offering fantastic seafood, meat, and mezze style dishes. With a stunning atmosphere and an excellent service from Akis and his team it makes for an ideal family night out or a romantic escape for 2. We can even arrange for you to arrive by boat, direct from the hotel.

Active Rest

Whether you choose to take to the clear water on the hotel's private yacht or a spin around the bay on waterskis with the guys at the water sports centre, you'll be tempted by the wide range of sports available directly from the private beach. Our in-resort team are always on hand with transport around the island and they'll arrange activities and reservations for you throughout your stay to suit your needs.

You'll be struck immediately by the beautiful light, the open space and the glorious views out over the pretty bay. The Elounda hotels offer the perfect place to retreat and relax, and with the kids kept busy in our exclusive programmes by day; you'll have no trouble finding a relaxing spot to while away the hours on the secluded beach, around the pool or on a lounger in your private garden. The sense of serenity is enhanced by the exceptional Six Senses Spa which offers extensive facilities and therapies to soothe even the most world-worn of travellers.

Fun for the kids

Crete also brings a focus to junior diving both in our exclusive PB SCUBA Academy from 10 years, as well as an unique PADI course for younger children aged 8 to 9 years, the PADI Seal Team Programme. Both are overseen by qualified instructors from the hotel's beach. Young divers can learn the basics of diving in a very unique environment as most Seal Team Programmes are based in a pool, but here the children are taken into the sea with PADI trained professionals from the start, thanks to the very protected conditions in the bay and extremely clear waters.

The exceptional kids space, the 'Ark', is a focal point for our programmes, where Scallywags will enjoy the two kids pools and excellent facilities for arts and crafts in the shade. Equally popular are local excursions to the private island of Spinalonga, and the fishing village of Elounda, as well as beach games, watersports and treasure hunts overseen by our fun-loving team. The kids will also love the dedicated children's pool, complete with waterslides. 

Our Children's Programmes

We appreciate that it's only when the kids are happy that parents really switch off and enjoy their holiday too. Creating the right environment where everyone feels their needs are being met and that they can enjoy themselves is the key to our success.
