An all-inclusive stay at a five-star thalasso spa and hotel on the coast of Crete, with private beach and award-winning spa - includes travel and a shared 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. Pretty poolside accommodation peeking out between gently swaying palm trees, impeccably manicured lawns, lagoon pools, glamorous walkways, plenty in the way of outdoor activities, and a truly exceptional thalasso and spa at the heart of it all.

When it comes to accommodation, it's no wonder the resort was awarded a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. 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 since 2004 - including Europe's Leading Spa & Wellness Resort in 2015, and the World’s Leading Thalasso Resort title for eight consecutive years. Guests staying for seven nights will get to indulge in a spa package - the perfect chance to see exactly why the resort is deserving of its accolades.


Decked out in stylish blue hues that echo the resort's natural surrounds, your Double VIP Sharing Pool room is located on the property's upper floor, and comes with a double bed, a sofa bed, an en-suite bathroom and plenty of modern amenities, all spread across 30 square metres. The decor is fresh and modern, while the furnished balcony provides views over the shared swimming pool to which you'll enjoy access.

The culinary scene at Aldemar Royal Mare 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. You'll be staying on an all-inclusive basis so breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks will be included at selected restaurants. Please see the 'Offer details' for further information.


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 is chargeable (except when they are included as part of our seven-night offer).


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.
