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 had an amazing 4 nights at Karma Minoan last week. Everything was perfect - the staff, food, drinks. We had a 2 bedroom unit with sea view with two balconies. There was a single bed/sofa in the living room so this could have made a third bedroom. The view from our room was amazing as well as the pool and dining areas. Breakfast was12 euros adults and free for our kids. Breakfast was yummy and with the most amazing view! We had lunch and dinner at the hotel several times and everything we ate was delicious ! We always had a couple of drinks in happy hour the local beer and wine was great. It was a couple of minutes walk to a local beach or a 10 minute drive into Agios which has loads of little beaches and lots of great bars and restaurants. I never write reviews but felt i had to for this hotel as everything was perfect. We can’t wait to return and a big thank you to all the staff for making our stay so great.

I had a fabulous massage by Amalia from Aegeo Spas at Karma Minoan. She is professional and very intuitive. I thoroughly recommend her. The room is lovely and peaceful, calming music plays, and you walk out of the room with a spring in your step.

What a fabulous place. Crete is so pretty and still hot at this time of year. Our hotel is typically Cretan with white-washed walls, large rooms, balconies and a deep blue and clean swimming pool. Food excellent. Just had an amazing massage with Amalia. Really good and no knots left!

We relaxed here after a 3 week (hectic at times) cycling and driving, sailing and cycling tour from Croatia to Corfu, Greece. Karma Minoan provided the perfect setting for Kaz & I, starting with an excellent breakfast buffet every morning, followed by swimming in their crystal clear pool and lazing on the pool chair beds. We walked to nearby beaches and caught the local bus to Agios Nikolaos to see the sights. We also hired bikes c/- arrangements by the very helpful staff. We had a fantastic Greek night and of course finished off with ouzo. Most of all, the staff are all amazing.

As a devotee of the massages I can say that it was my first real massage. Real research of your tensions not just a program, real pressure where it’s necessary. I felt completely relaxed. Thank you Amalia !

from the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough to make our stay welcome and relaxing. the food is Devine and the beer cold. the Greek night is a must as was the quiz night, a visit in to the local town Agios Nikolaos a very beautiful port with plenty of shops and restaurants, although we did only try the Evanna Restaurant - Pork chops were finger licking. a day trip to Santorini, was the only disappointment. although very nice and we can say we have been, its not all up to the hype. although if you do visit i recommend a small restaurant that's just sat back from the steps going to the coach park

Fabulous location in Agios Nikolaos. Very close to some very good sandy beaches like Amoudara and Voulisma and just a 20-minute drive to Agios Nikolaos city centre where there are numerous good eating options. The people at Karma Minoan are absolutely fantastic. Very friendly and extremely helpful. Every guidance/ recommendation was spot on. The breakfast spread is good, and dinner options are plenty. Cabs are available in a few minutes if requested. The nearest airport is Heraklion. Plaka and Kritsa are bespoke villages to visit. The archaeological museum in Heraklion is one of a kind and a must do.
