Pools

There’s a trio of pools here, with an infinity number that overlooks the ocean and nearby Spinalonga Island. On top of that, there are over 140 private pools that belong to each of the suite rooms.

Pool Scene

A lift takes you down to the private white pebble beach. There’s a wooden deck dotted with parasols and sunloungers. And the Isola Beach Club serves drinks and fresh fruit all day.

Food & Drink

There are 4 à la carte places. The Greek restaurant serves locally-sourced meat and vegetables from the hotel's garden, while the Greek taverna is set in an old fisherman’s stone house and serves the day’s catch.

The Asian place has dishes from Thailand to Japan, and there’s an Italian ristorante, too. For breakfast, omelettes and pancakes are cooked up in the buffet restaurant. And every week, there’s a barbecue on the beach.

Entertainment

There are a couple of lounge bars to choose from. One’s an open-air place with sofas to take in the sea views. Once a week this is turned into an open-air cinema showing old time classics. And Some nights there’s live piano and saxophone. The second bar offers theme nights overlooking the pool.

Sports & Activities

Down on the beach, there’s a watersports* centre with waterskiing and wakeboarding. Or you could learn to dive with PADI-registered instructors. Back at the hotel, there are 2 floodlit tennis courts*.

There’s great shopping here – you can pick up designer clothes and accessories, or head to the luxury jewellers. Golfers get discounted green fees at The Crete Golf Club*, 30 minutes’ drive away.

Health & Beauty

Turkish steam baths and thalassotherapy are a couple of highlights at the spa*. Then there are signature treatments*, like olive oil and sugar scrubs and yoghurt after-sun facials.

The state-of-the-art gym comes with cardio machines and weights. And fitness classes here range from yoga to Cretan dance. Or you could join a meditation session.

Facility Overview

Choice is everything here – there are 3 pools including an infinity number with sea views. Then there’s the pair of separate children’s pools. On the dining front, there’s a main buffet restaurant and 4 à la cartes with an Asian restaurant and a Greek taverna. The bars are both laidback spots – one’s an open-air place with sea views.
