What: Minos Beach Art Hotel, a small luxury hotel. 5 * Resort
Where: Agios Nikolaos Bay, Crete
Why Go: For the amazing nature within the resorts walls, the excellent waters , the local cuisine
Ideal for: a 4 day rest away from everything.
At the beginning of the summery season after a hectic winter all I need is to go to a resort in order to rest and unwind.
1st stop for the past 2 years has always been Elounda and Saint Nikolas Bay in Crete.
Places where you get to find 5 star resorts with great natural environment within the resort and very hospitable personnel that makes you feel at home.
Here we are not talking super fancy Maldives-like resorts neither Sardinian or Mykonian nights full of action.
Here it is all about a morning jog, a fresh fruit salad, endless hours on the resort’s private beach, local wines and loads of Cretan snails and sea food.
Minos Beach Art hotel has been there forever, it is a 5 star small luxury hotel where you can enjoy endless moments of serenity plus experience a feeling of being lost in a past era where not much is needed just sea, sun and …..olive oil!
- The 4 restaurants with my favourite bit being the little lunch basket being brought down from the taverna to the beach plus La bouillabaisse fine dining restaurant.
- The blue black swimming pool
- The superior suites with their private swimming pool and sea view.
