A relaxing stay at an elite wellness resort in the coastal town of Elounda, with breakfast and dinner
Crete is a timelessly romantic destination with panoramas similar to those sought out by honeymooners in Santorini. Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort's idyllic setting on the northeastern coast of this dreamy Greek island places it in good company among some of the most exclusive hotels in all of Greece.
With its EU blue flag private beach, wellness center and views of the sea and mountains, this five-star resort is centered around luxurious rest and relaxation. Fresh Mediterranean cuisine, beautiful rooms and exemplary facilities can be found here, including a heated pool, water sports, a golf course, two tennis courts and yacht rentals – in case you feel like living the high life on both land and sea.
Wake up each day to see the morning light gleam on the water, as each Porto Sea View room opens onto a dazzling sea scene from your furnished balcony. Rooms are bright and spacious, with air conditioning to keep you fresh and cool. Your decadent marble bathroom is fitted with heated towel racks and audio sound (so you can sing along in the shower). Up the relaxation stakes by opting for a Superior room, where you'll enjoy extra space and a sitting area.
Nothing tastes better after a day of exercise than fresh, healthy Cretan cuisine. À la carte dining is available at Aglio & Olio Italian Restaurant, set among a picturesque olive grove, and you can nibble on fresh seafood for lunch right by the water's edge at Odysseus Restaurant. For an evening cocktail, you can head to Kirki bar, and for light snacks, The Beach Bar is a great option.
The first Six Senses Spa in Europe, with a design that centers on the sea views and a jaw-dropping range of facilities, this spa is quite simply exceptional. No need to worry about tense, aching muscles after your work-out as there are more than enough treatments and therapies to see to that, like Oriental massage, Tai Chi, Reiki, a Turkish Hamman, a Roman steam room and a Thalassotherapy pool. The expert therapists use a natural Greek product range, leaving your skin soft and supple.
The fabulous fitness facilities are enough to keep you busy throughout your stay, but if you wanted to try something new in your free time, then you could take diving lessons at the PADI diving center, go waterskiing or wind-surfing, play tennis, use the gym, play a round of golf or even head out on a sailing excursion. If you feel like venturing outside the resort, Crete is full of beautiful beaches, ancient historic sites and charming villages to explore. You can request a guided tour of parts of the island or take a cooking or wine-tasting class.
