Sea Side Resort and Spa
Luxury, serenity and stunning views are what the Sea Side Resort and Spa is all about.
If you are seeking the ultimate in holiday luxury in the Aegean, call off the search. The Sea Side Resort and Spa resembles a 21st century take on ancient Greece, with minimalist clean lines in natural materials. The hotel is wrapped around the headland like a figurehead on the prow of a ship, with views out over the sea which will take your breath away.
There is no shortage of cool, turquoise pools either, with one for active swimming, another for children and splashy fun, and yet another, with Jacuzzi, expressly for relaxation at the upper level with panoramic views to enhance the experience. Yet another is in the spa where massage and beauty treatments are available and equipment to maintain your fitness regime. Exercise and yoga classes also take place in the open air and, if you're feeling competitive, tennis, basket ball and volley ball games are on the agenda.
The main restaurant includes a stunning, large veranda overlooking the Gulf of Mononaftis. Here buffets are spread for the three meals of the day. Local cuisine and international dishes are served, with entertaining cookery demonstrations scheduled in too. With three bars to choose from, two poolside, you'll be able to ring the changes for morning coffee, afternoon tea and evening cocktails before selecting your favourite spot. Among the best that Crete has to offer, the hotel is in a quiet area 18 kms west of Heraklion city centre and just 80 metres from the beach of Mononaftis.
