Sea views through sun-kissed curtains, a white beach, a salt-water pool, wine and a mezze plate, a massage, coffee at a Cretan kafenio, octopus salad served al fresco, art and design inspiration—it's all on offer at this 5-star spa hotel.
On one of the most enchanting seafront locations in Crete—between the beautiful blue waters of Mirabello Bay and the island’s rugged, verdant landscape—lies a gorgeously-designed hotel that also happens to be a credible art museum. A compelling portion of the monumental G & A Mamidakis Foundation collection of Greek art is held here.
Minos Beach Art Hotel is a place for exploring. The art installations, certainly, but also the Mirabello seabed, full of ancient remains, wrecks, rocks, caverns and reefs. (Don’t miss the ‘Lost Ears of Agios Nikolaos’—an underwater sculpture installation by Kostas Ioannides.) And when all that feels like effort, a tranquil spa, a warm pool, a breezy room, and a private balcony are on hand.
The Mirabello bay is a great jumping-off point into ancient Crete's customs, landscape and locales. Chania, on the northwestern side of the island, is one of the biggest Greek island cities, with a picturesque harbor and local cheeses and olives for the sampling at the Agora market. On the southern side of the island sits Samariá Gorge, a national park brimming with mythic beauty. Everywhere in between, you’ll find traditional Cretan villages, where friendly residents share their cuisine and customs, you’ll find tiny mountaintop chapels, and magnificent beaches and wild, hidden vistas.
