Secluded and peaceful, and set on the outskirts of Agios Nikolaos, St Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Thalassa Villas, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is a dreamy Crete retreat with superb access to the island’s finest experiences, including Spinalonga.
Highlights include the gardens and open-air cinema, as well as the private beach and direct sea access from many of the villas, ideal for keen snorkelers.
At this boutique hotel, designed and owned by an architect, you can expect exceptional design, with a blend of local architecture and contemporary décor with open spaces showcasing sea views at every opportunity. A range of accommodation options ensures a perfect spot for every guest, from sleek sea view rooms, Suite & Club Suites which offer privileged Club benefits to spacious private villas with their own pools. A few short steps from St Nicolas Bay, sit the Thalassa villas, eight luxurious 3-4 bedroom villas that have access to all the benefits of the main hotel whilst enjoying an added element of privacy and elegance.
Guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to mealtimes, with some five eateries throughout the property. The Blue Bay All Day Restaurant a la carte is the perfect place to grab a delicious bite at any time, and those looking for a sundowner or nightcap will be at home in the chic surrounds of the Bonatsa Jetty Bar. We recommend you spend at least one evening at Kafenion (a la carte), the hotel’s signature restaurant where you can enjoy mouth-watering, authentic Cretan delicacies in a romantic setting beside the water’s edge or why not try the fine dining innovative cuisine offered at the Minotaure served under the stars.
The eight luxurious Thalassa Villas are designed to inspire and welcome well-heeled travelers seeking a magnificent blend of contemporary style and traditional Cretan architecture. Staying here is an experience unlike any other, with the stunning blue waters stretching in front of your private terrace as far as the eye can see, and the sound of the waves gently waking you every morning, what could be better?
With each villa featuring an abundance of indoor and outdoor space to enjoy, you can dine, unwind, and get active in the sun or shade, with privacy guaranteed. Coming with a host of state-of-the-art amenities, a private pool and direct access to the sea via a private pathway, the Thalassa Villas are the peak of Cretan luxury.
Thinking of saying ‘I do’ on the romantic Greek isle? Then the small, private Greek chapel next to the hotel’s Kafenion restaurant is a perfect backdrop to weddings and blessings.
For families, there are child-friendly facilities including babysitting, kids menus and a kids’ club, while teens and active guests will love the watersports.
The Poseidon Spa offers world famous Elemis & Cinq Mondes treatments & its own pool and relaxation facilities. And don't forget the outdoor cinema too.
A Thalasso Spa and plentiful watersports facilities complete the picture here to make a Cretan luxury travel experience to remember.
