Elounda Mare, Crete

Elounda Mare was the first hotel in the world to have bungalows with private pools on the water front. As one of the only members to be a part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux group on the island, Elounda Mare has established itself as an authentic aristocratic hotel. Simply exuding an aura of timelessness through its décor and antique art; this is truly an all-time-classic hotel. The property has rooms and suites in the main house and private- pool bungalows and suites in the grounds. The new addition of a four-bedroom 300 square metre beachfront villa, “The Minoan Palace” will please even the most discerning of guests. The hotel has three restaurants (alongside access to a further five within the larger resort) including the Cretan gourmet Old Mill, awarded as one of the best restaurants in the country.
