A five-star stay at a Small Luxury Hotel of the World, with breakfast, a dinner and perks for longer stays
It’s no wonder that Crete is the stuff of myths and legends; this idyllic Greek island is home to snow-capped mountains that loom over sun-drenched beaches, modern hotels perched in ancient hilltop villages and international golf courses nestled next to ancient olives groves. This is a destination that's got all the essentials of a relaxing island vacation – tranquility, culture and beautiful scenery – in spades.
The five-star Castello Boutique Resort & Spa is the perfect hideaway from which to experience Crete for yourself. Perched amid tropical gardens in the traditional seaside village of Sissi, this newly built Small Luxury Hotel of the World also ticks all the boxes of a serene and sunny getaway. There's a freshwater swimming pool, an excellent Mediterranean restaurant, a poolside bar and a spa (complete with a hammam and sauna), which means switching off and living the good life is easy.
Rooms and suites
Superior rooms are awash with natural light, refreshing décor and plenty of space – 323 square feet, to be exact. The two-story Junior suites are even larger, at 538 square feet, and include an upstairs bedroom and a downstairs living room.
Elea Restaurant is sleek and spacious, with spectacular views of the resort’s tropical gardens and the mountains beyond. Dishing up delicious Mediterranean fare using locally sourced ingredients, Elea caters to all tastes. Aroma Bar is the perfect place for a sunset tipple, serving refreshing cocktails and other drinks by the stunning freshwater pool. Piano nights and other entertainments are regular features at this elegant resort.
Callista Spa takes relaxation to another level, boasting a massage parlor offering a wide range of therapeutic treatments, a hammam, a sauna, a hair salon and a relaxation room.
Castello Boutique Resort & Spa is located in the town of Sissi, on the northern coast of Crete, offering accessible seclusion. The sea is just steps from the resort, so you can have the sand between your toes in no time. The charming village center, with its unique boutique shops and little tavernas, is just a very short walk, providing the perfect opportunity for an afternoon stroll.
