4 Star Plus Plus


In north-eastern Crete, in Agios Nikolaos, lies Mirabello Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in Greece. Here is where you’ll find Istron Bay Hotel; a place of inspiration for numerous writers, poets, painters, journalists but mostly, an inspiration for its guests.

The Hotel itself is like a work of art, blessed with a gorgeous panoramic view. Here, in Mirabello bay in Agios Nikolaos, you’ll experience relaxation and utter privacy while still in one of the country’s most popular resorts.

The dazzling white of the Hotel meets tropical green under the vivid violet bougainvillea, the scarlet of the hibiscus and the breathtaking blue of the Mirabello sea. All you need is here, in Agios Nikolaos.

The deep blue of the waters seems to be reflected everywhere, in the Hotel rooms, the restaurant, the gardens, the bar, the pool, even on the tennis court. The sea; a treat for all your senses, offers much needed relaxation away from the hectic city. We welcome you to “the refuge of Gods” here in Agios Nikolaos. We welcome you to Istron Bay Hotel.
