White-washed resorts above Mirabello Bay, hotels carved into the hillside and sublime properties with Relais & Chateaux status feature in our handpicked Crete hotels

Experience the best of island life at our chosen Crete hotels where serious draws are luxurious spas, attentive service and ambient restaurants. Expect water’s edge Greek restaurants in converted fisherman’s houses, a perfect line of grass parasols overlooking a dazzling sea and thalassotherapy jets soothing your body. You’ll find family-friendly hotels with private beaches, inflatable water games and kids’ clubs but also decadent bungalows overlooking the Aegean Sea with the focus on award-winning dining and swish spas. We’ve chosen stylish hotels in Chania with Moet & Chandon bars and oversized beanbags scattered on the beach, and then a sought after celebrity favourite in Agios Nikolaos where beauty is found in rustic hideaway charm and those spellbinding views from the infinity pool.
