Minos Palace, sitting prettily on a peaceful promontory, resembles and island within an island, is a favorable couples-only luxury hotel in Agios Nikolaos Crete (Elounda Village is just 9km away too) offering a haven of privacy for discerning guests seeking for an exclusive holiday experience in lovely Crete. 

The sea views, which can be seen from every angle, are stunning, and narrow paths, buried in a manicured tangle of greenery, lead down to a wild and lovely stretch of rocky coastline.

The jewel in the crown is the large, saltwater infinity pool, surrounded by plenty of day beds and sun loungers and wet bean bags with soothing chocolate and raspberry colour schemes... the ambience is laid-back and vaguely Bohemian.

This adults-only Minos Palace features 148 luxury sea view rooms, bungalows and suites with private pool overlooking the marvelous Mirabello Bay. The decor is modern, decorated in earthly colors, all rooms are stylish and fully fitted with modern comforts and deluxe amenities allowing valued guests to indulge in the pleasures of luxury and breathe in the serenity of their surroundings while unwinding on their sun kissed balconies and terrace areas.

The dining options include Amalthea, an upscale restaurant serving excellent Greek and International cuisine; Culinarium Inblu Restaurant an a la carte restaurant overlooking the beach serving lunch and dinner, ideal for those seeking al fresco with local specialties. 

Pay a visit to Ananea Wellness by Aegeo Spas in Crete and pamper the senses and soothe the soul.

Adventure lovers can start off their day with a game of tennis, partake in water sports and diving adventures or practice a series of environmental activities. There are also a couple of billiard tables, a small library, tennis courts and a cramped, shingle-strewn private beach.

As the day unfolds a swim in the azure of the sea, a dive in the crystal clear waters of the infinity pool with spectacular sea views.

Minos Palace is an ideal base for visiting the less touristy resorts of Crete's eastern half. Aghios Nikolaos, with its waterside taverns, cobbled shopping streets and ‘bottomless’ lake, is just 2.5km away. The pretty resort of Elounda (and ferry to Hislop’s ‘leper isle’, Spinalonga) is 9km away, history buffs can wander through the mazelike Minoan ruins of Knossos (66km). Explore the traditional Cretan villages of Kritza and Mochlos and enjoy a lovely lunch as both are famous for this.
