Elounda Mare Hotel - Luxury Hotel in Elounda
The 5* Elounda Mare Hotel overlooks Mirabello Bay on the north coast of the island of Crete, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Since 1988 it has been a member of the international Relais & Chateaux hotel group.
Exuding sophistication and exclusivity, the Elounda Mare Hotel has an unparalleled reputation in Greece for its attentive and personalised service. With its award-winning restaurants, comprehensive leisure facilities and exquisite design, it is the ideal choice for the discerning traveller seeking a relaxing holiday in a serene and intimate setting.
Elounda Mare is a delight of traditional Cretan architecture and interior design. The typical whitewashed surfaces bind harmoniously with the brown and grey rock walls and the local carob and olive trees. The decoration is exclusively antique pieces of folk art: carpets, chests, tapestries, mantelpieces, and fine Cretan marble throughout the halls and salons.
The main building lounges are centered around the Karavia Bar. The Hotel has been awarded the European Blue Flag for the past 9 consecutive years in recognition of the continuous efforts to maintain the environment in pristine condition, for efficient water management and wastewater treatment, and for the participation in the rising of environmental awareness among staff and the local schoolchildren.
Near the children's pool is a playroom and table tennis, whereas baby-sitting services are available for the younger ones. Near the beach one finds the sauna and steam bath facility, as well as the massage parlour.
Room service runs around the clock and bungalow guests can except full service on the garden table next to their seawater swimming pool.
Developed on 30,000 m2 of gently sloping land with a private coastline of 300 metres, the Elounda Mare is located 70 km to the east of Iraklion International Airport (a pleasant one hour drive). The town of Aghios Nikolaos and the small village of Elounda are at a distance of 7 km and 2 km away respectively.Distances:
