Offering elegance and sophistication with perfect panoramic views
The Elounda Ilion is a beautifully elegant hotel built into the Cretan hillside, with panoramic views of the Mirabello Gulf and the medieval castle of neighbouring island, Spinalonga.
Staff are warm and attentive, creating an atmosphere that is intimate without being intrusive – one of the main reasons why guests return year after year.
The large pool and decked sun terrace are the perfect place to spend the day relaxing or to watch the stunning sunset each evening.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable with contemporary furnishings and fittings, each with a balcony and breath-taking views over the gardens and out to sea.
Situated a mile away from the beach, the hotel is also just a 30-minute walk from Elounda’s pretty harbour, where boat trips can be taken to Spinalonga and the sunken city of Olous.
Staff are happy to book taxis if you want to explore the picturesque town and its attractions, before heading back in the evening for freshly cooked meals in the hotel restaurant.
Perfect for families and couples alike, the Elounda Ilion is the ideal accommodation for your holiday to Crete.
Please note: This hotel is located on a hillside and guests are required to walk from the transfer drop off/pick up point which is approximately 300m uphill.
