Spend some downtime relaxing by the clear blue sea in Crete, with an all-inclusive stay at a classy, five-star resort - all travel included

Rethymno Palace is an elegant, five-star resort just outside Rethymno, the third largest city on the island of Crete. Sitting just a few metres from the beautiful sand and shingle of Adelianos Kampos, the hotel is perfectly placed for doing little more than flopping on a sun lounger; however, if you’re feeling energetic, it’s also a popular spot for swimming and water sports. The surrounding area, with traditional villages dotting the countryside, is great for getting a snapshot of Greek island life, while the town of Rethymno itself is rich in history, with pretty Venetian architecture and centuries-old fountains dotting cobbled streets.

Back at the hotel, you’ll find everything you need to make your stay in Rethymno as comfortable as possible. The recently renovated guest rooms are spacious havens of tranquillity, and come with calming vistas and balconies for taking in all that fresh air. When it comes to dining, you can enjoy Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine at the elegant Nafsika dining room and Erotokritos, an a la carte restaurant overlooking the pool and the sea. After a day of sightseeing in Rethymno – or just of lounging beneath an umbrella, on a sunbed on the beach – there’s no better way to wind down than at the hotel’s luxurious beauty spa, where a range of wellness treatments is on offer.
