Amirandes Grecotel

Reminiscent of the sprawling palaces of the fabled Minoan kings who once ruled Crete, this exclusive resort offers an unforgettable experience and the highest standards of Mediterranean luxury.

A stunning beachfront hotel, surrounded by lavish gardens, Amirandes incorporates the traditional Cretan elements of earth, fire and water as its hallmark. Sitting on a magnificent stretch of pristine coastline that gently curves into two coves of golden sand lapped by clear, warm waters, the facilities here are truly fit for royalty.

Amirandes offers a wide collection of stylish accommodation to suit everyone with deluxe guestrooms, bungalows, suites and villas with designer furnishings and luxurious amenities. Cosy Premium Bungalows are nestled among the gardens, Deluxe Junior Bungalow Suites sit on the beachfront and feature private temperature-controlled pools and Bang & Olufsen television.

Other speciality Suites feature private fitness rooms, private pools and outdoor rain showers while luxurious villas cater to larger families and groups of friends.

Gourmet food lovers will not be disappointed: Amirandes boasts seven restaurants offering Mediterranean buffets, Cretan organic cuisine, alfresco seafood dining, Italian specialities, Asian delicacies in Blue Monkey dressed in red and gourmet at the Lago Di Candia with views across the romantically illuminated lagoon. The latest addition is the Minotaur restaurant featuring original Picasso ceramics and fine dining Italian cuisine.

Days can be spent at the extravagant Elixir Spa with its deluxe indoor pool, or for the ultimate in water experiences choose one of the Amirandes 'Star Pools' with star lights, temperature and smooth current controls. Keen golfers can take advantage of reduced green fees at the prestigious Crete Golf Club (just 10km away), whilst younger guests can enjoy the extensive children's facilities the resort has to offer.

Kids love Amirandes, while their parents relax they can enjoy discovery adventures at Grecoland Kids’ club with arts and crafts, team and group games and environmental awareness days. Teens are kept occupied at the golf academy or playing basketball or football.
