This magnificent complex of rooms, restaurants, pools and bars faces the fabled previous leper colony island of Spinalonga, brought so vividly to life in Victoria Hislop's book 'The Island".
The complex is built on the side of a steep hill side affording every room with a view to the sea but the descent to the beach and swimming pools is by funicular which departs from the main reception area. The four restaurants offer very different menus - French, Italian, Eastern and, of course, Greek. The large sea pool is great for a quick cooling dip and ideal for those who are not so keen to jump into the sea!
The complex is situated about 50K from the main airport but transport is provided and takes about an hour. If you want to chill out in comfort, this is the place to go.
