Chic styling meets Cretan charm beside the seaside village of Sissi

Luxury Hotel in Crete

  • Adults-only boutique retreat with designer suites
  • Outdoor, freshwater pool that’s lit up after sundown
  • Mountain views and cosmopolitan cuisine in the gourmet Elea Restaurant

Castello Boutique Resort & Spa

With its pure, white buildings and colourful gardens there’s a hint of classical Crete about Castello Boutique Resort & Spa. But look closer and you’ll find über-cool architecture and hip interior design. Outdoors is an inviting freshwater pool, which transforms into a trendy spot for cocktails and music by night. While inside there’s a glass-fronted fine dining restaurant, stylish spa and collection of contemporary suites.

Arrive in style via limousine, and sip a glass of sherry before being shown to your room. Behind the door you’ll discover a cool, white palette and dark wood furnishings. Look out at the gardens or across to the mountains from your terrace. Or pick a suite with a private pool for an added splash of luxury. Then get dressed up for an evening of island cuisine with an international twist at Elea Restaurant.

When it’s time to explore, Castello Boutique Resort & Spa is perfectly positioned between mountains and sea. You could head to nearby Sissi, a small fishing village with plenty of character, and wander through narrow streets to the pretty harbour. Or seek out a secluded stretch of sand for a day at the beach. Hike or cycle along the Lassithi plateau to take in windmills, traditional villages and olive groves. Or visit the ancient Minoan palaces at Malia or Knossos for a glimpse of the island’s ancient history.
