An all-inclusive getaway to a five-star thalasso spa and resort on the coast of Crete, with a private beach and award-winning spa – includes all travel and a VIP sharing pool

Town planners could learn a lot from the five-star Aldemar Royal Mare Thalasso Resort in Crete. It’s laid out like the most perfect miniature hamlet we’ve ever seen, with pretty poolside accommodation peeking out between gently swaying palm trees, impeccably manicured lawns, lagoon pools, glamorous walkways and many more wonderful design features. To top it all off, discover plenty in the way of outdoor activities, and a truly exceptional thalasso and spa at the heart of it all.

From the soothing muted hues indoors to the gorgeous turquoise pool, every attention to upscale luxury detail has been carefully considered. However, the real show-stopper has to be the spa, a cobalt-blue oasis that has earned this resort multiple awards – including a previous win of Europe's Leading Spa & Wellness Resort, the achievement of being named the World’s Leading Thalasso Resort for eight consecutive years, and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Dining

The culinary scene at Aldemar Royal Mare Thalasso Resort is pretty special. Sympossio is a lavish buffet restaurant with spectacular views over the Cretan Sea, and mouth-watering local delicacies are served on a pretty, bougainvillea-lined cobbled courtyard at El Greco traditional Greek restaurant. Candia Restaurant offers a menu of gourmet Mediterranean creations, plus there’s just-landed seafood in Albatros beach bar and oriental delights in Royal Palm Asian restaurant. Themed nights are somewhat of a speciality here, and include Fish Night for fresh-caught catches, Lobster Night, Cretan Night, BBQ Night and more. For drinks, head to Minos Bar for cocktails and live music every night, or enjoy refreshing beverages all day at Elements Pool Bar. Please note that a supplement may apply to special themed nights and events.

Wellness

The spa is a magnificent and huge space, wholly dedicated to serenity and soothing, and has been voted the World’s Leading Thalasso and Spa Resort by the World Travel Awards eight times over. It’s a pretty, blue-tiled haven with treatment rooms, swimming pools, a hammam and fitness centre that’s staffed by expert therapists and dietitians ready to massage, buff and polish you into tip-top condition. Please note that access to the spa's facilities and treatments are chargeable.

Location


The resort sits next to a cute pebbled beach sprinkled with parasols and loungers. Within the grounds, you’ll find two azure swimming pools and lots of secluded spots for chilling out in the gardens. Despite the resort’s sense of seclusion, you’re a short drive away from Hersonissos – a vibrant town that offers a heady mix of buzzing bars, beach life, restaurants and nightclubs, plus an upscale, lively harbour area. Hersonissos Old Town is a great spot to escape the action, with its charming narrow alleys, family-run tavernas and traditional Cretan handicraft shops.
