Superior room with sea view

A tranquil retreat with serene interiors and glistening sea views, near the charming Cretan town of Elounda – includes breakfast

One of Crete’s more upscale resorts and with a growing international reputation, Elounda boasts Blue Flag beaches, crystal-clear waters and a good choice of quality restaurants, tavernas and shops. It’s fast becoming a playground for the giltterati – famous visitors include Leonardo DiCaprio, U2 and Lady Gaga.

Sitting like a gleaming white beacon on a peaceful hillside just out of town and boasting lovely sea views over silvery olive groves, Elounda Krini Hotel is a perfect fit for the area and shows off a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. It’s recently undergone a complete renovation and exudes an intimate, boutique feel. Rooms are spread over two buildings, and you can relax on your own balcony and take in the panoramic vista of the bay and the mountains.

There’s a generously proportioned swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas. If you prefer a dip in the sea, it’s only a few minutes' stroll down to a small, unspoiled beach. A short walk along a coastal path will take you into town, where you can pick and choose between restaurants and traditional tavernas. If you fancy heading out to explore, the uninhabited island of Spinalonga sits across the water from Elounda, and there are regular boat trips to explore its beaches and historic fortress.
