On the north-east coast of Crete, set in its own beautiful private bay with a 600m sandy beach.

The Istron Bay Hotel is secluded yet within 30 minutes drive of Agios Nikolaos, two minutes from Istron village, it  is self-contained - it has all you need, but is an easy drive to village and town.

The Hotel offers pleasing "areas" to sit and enjoy views and special moments. Either from your room balcony, as almost all the rooms have sea view, or from the public areas, gardens and bars.

It has a marvellous atmosphere - calm and peaceful; a civilized place to stay as long as you can. One of a few places in Crete in just the right location, quite special.  

This is the place that inspired innumerable artists, writers, poets, politicians and journalists, and most of all Istron Bay Guests.

If you prefer more privacy and the luxury of a villa, Istron Collection Villas next to the hotel could be a superb option.

The manager who  is also a chef is responsible for the taste and food quality, the hotel offers real traditional Cretan cuisine and also Mediterranean cuisine.  Enjoy your meal at one of the three hotel restaurants and choose the menu you prefer.

Guests have the opportunity to learn much about Cretan cuisine, the herbs that are used,  the olive oil, the  natural ingredients, and their natural sources.
