Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas
Unique 'bungalow + pool' concept

When I stayed last at Elounda Beach, the Greek gods were obviously in a good mood as the weather was superb - but then again the weather always is superb in Greece, whatever the season. Crete is the island of light, bursting with fragrant flowers and brimming with bays ideal for diving and bathing. In Mirabello Bay, shimmering a silvery white in the Aegean sun, is the "Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas", the most romantic resort on Crete.

The hotel offers 253 rooms, suites and bungalows, two Royal Suites and one Imperial Suite. There are two private beaches, an outdoor heated seawater pool, Health, Fitness & Beauty Center, five floodlit tennis courts and a Water Sport Center. Six exclusive restaurants offer cuisine ranging from traditional Greek to Italian and Sushi to Polynesian and have been awarded the "Five Star Diamond Award" by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences as well as the "Award of Excellence" by Wine Spectator Magazine.   

Bungalows on the waterfront with direct access to the sea, and suites with private heated pools and a view of the sea. A great idea is also the unique collection of four prestigious Club levels: Comfort VIP Club, Premium Club, Exclusive Club and Platinum Club, offering different features and services. For example: Comfort VIP Club guests enjoy luxurious rooms and one-bedroom villas. Premium Club guests settle into waterfront suites, some with private platforms leading directly to the sea or a shared heated pool. Exclusive Club guests luxuriate in villas and suites with private pools and expansive decks.  I can highly recommend the Platinum Club - the symbol of excellence! The Platinum Club Suites surround guests with unmitigated opulence. All provide fully equipped kitchens and dining areas, fireplaces, oceanfront terraces, gardens, and private pools and gyms. Personal trainers, private chefs, sommeliers, and Learjet or helicopter transfers make the experience even sweeter.

Enjoy the privilege of complete privacy in my preferred suite, the unsurpassed palatial "Royal Suite" which is comparable to all the comforts and luxury of a distinguished residence.

Both Royal Bungalow Suites are situated on the 3rd row from the water's edge, with units approximately 270m². They consist of an elegantly decorated living room with fire place, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and dining area to entertain friends, a marble lined private gym room, a heated indoor and outdoor swimming/whirlpool and a terrace with wooden deck surrounded by colorful gardens with hand made bamboo & wooden furniture. Pianists are available on call to perform on custom grand pianos. The Imperial Suite’s amenities extend to a billiards table and a 15-seat theater for private screenings.

Your butler, the signature service of Elounda Beach Hotel, will be at your call throughout your stay reminding that no detail is overlooked and every desire is fulfilled.

Celebrate the good life in a land steeped in ancient history. Also have a look at my special features Elounda Bay Palace and the island of Crete.
