#9 of 71 Specialty lodging in Crete
The resort’s 23 sea-facing rooms are a study in the iconic Greek island aesthetic. Whitewash walls, Aegean blue interior touches and, of course, unparalleled views of the sea, combine to produce spaces that are as relaxing as they are breath taking. Members will be impressed with the amenities, which include a pool and children’s pool, Karma Spa offering local organic Cretan treatments, sea-facing yoga deck (and accompanying yogi), the Amphora restaurant which – like its namesake – carries an impressive volume of local and international wines and a large sundeck with spectacular views of Crete’s mountainous interior. The fully refurbished Karma Minion, situated only five minutes drive from the understated – yet artfully curated – cool of Agios Nikolaos, offers an idyllic escape for members seeking a stylish yet relaxed slice of Cretan life.

We stayed at Karma Minoan for 1 week and had some amazing time. They have great staff right from reception, restaurant, cleaning and spa. They even remembered our food preferences. Provided helpful tips for places around. My spouse loved to be at bar till wee hours and had made great friends over some great drinks. Rooms were amazing all white overlooking blue Aegean sea. Treat to eyes. Don’t miss the sunrise though it’s pretty early but all worth. Food was true to Crete style. And the events especially the Greek night his highly recommended.

We had a week in Crete at Karma. From the first moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly and helpful people . Without exception the staff here make the holiday. The room we had overlooking the sea was absolutely fantastic and waking up to sunrises was a highlight. The events at the hotel were all done and spread so you could enjoy other areas but still have some very good times at the hotel on your stay (some late nights were had). Thanks to all the staff for making this a memorable moment on our vacation - we will return!!

We totally loved Karma Minoan; the rooms were spacious with lovely views, the facilities incredibly well-kept, and the food fantastic. However, what really made our stay so memorable was the staff. Valerios, Anna, Despina, Ria, Niki, Stelios, Christos (to name a few) went above and beyond at every opportunity. It was a wonderful stay, I can’t wait to go back!

We were rather disappointed in our stay. We had a studio room that you basically walked into and backed out of because it was so small. If you dropped your soap in the shower you better have a spare. It really reminded me of a cruise ship room. The staff at the resort were very nice though. They were always available and happy to help. If you rent a car; be aware that parking is a bit difficult. It doesn't cost but you have to park on top of a hill and with several other cars in tight quarters!

Dear chocoj. We are mortified to learn that your holiday experience in Karma Minoan failed to match your expectations, especially when we aim to go beyond and above! Some of the rooms will have their bathrooms redesigned offseason to make the experience more comfortable. The whole team and I sincerely hope that we may have the opportunity of reversing your opinion and the pleasure of welcoming you back again. Warmest Regards, Valerios K.

Karma Minoan is one of the most beautiful and relaxed places I have ever stayed for a holiday, which is due to the lovely and diligent staff who made us feel so very special. I won this holiday via a Spec-Savers competition as a second prize. Our room was light and airy which looked directly out over the bright blue sea. The cleaners were friendly and cleaned our room every day, plus tidied the bed. Changed the bedding as well whilst we there over the 5 days. Everything you could need was in the room in excellent working order and condition. The restaurant and bar were always manned with friendly staff who would take their time to talk with you and go over what food and drinks were available (Hi Stelios 😊). Reception was open for help 24/7 and had a bus timetable and taxi no’s etc. We arrived at Karma Minoan an hour before the ‘Greek night’ was taking place and decided to go to it. Martyn my husband was up dancing with everyone, and it was a fun night. One to remember as it was his birthday and the Manager Valerios gave him a complementary bottle of wine and shots which went down very well with the evenings delicious Greek buffet. As it is a spa hotel, I had to give the spa a try and had an excellent massage which was heavenly in a beautiful atmosphere with relaxing music. Such a lovey way to round off our time there. Thank you Karma Minoan and Spec-savers for a much needed superb holiday.
