Your Destination

The largest of the Greek islands, Crete is an enchanting hub of dreamy villages, ancient treasures, sun-drenched beaches and divinely silky sea-waters - all wrapped up in the embrace of the locals’ warm hospitality.

Crete is the birthplace of the Minoan people, said to be the first advanced society on European soil, who ruled over 4000 years ago. Here you can find remains of this remarkable civilisation in various archeological sites dotted over the island, including the famous Palace of Knossos.


Home to soft, sandy beaches in the north, cliff-studded coast in the south, rugged mountains and Europe’s largest gorge; Crete is the perfect destination for outdoor adventurers and beach-seekers. Don’t miss a hike to the cave where Zeus was born or the 11 mile trek down the simply breathtaking Samaria Gorge - a spectacular, once in a lifetime experience.


A land where age-old cultural traditions are still honoured, the spirit of Crete is tangible and you only need to drop in to a local
kafeneia (coffee house) or a quaint taverna serving vibrant, fresh cuisine, to be enchanted by it.

Cressa Ghitonia Village 4*

Welcome to an authentic, reconstructed, cretan Neighbourhood of the 1800s!

Located at the highest point of the little village of Sfaka, Cressa Ghitonia Village Restaurant & Spa is a 15-house redevelopment where each room is truly unique, and maintains its historical elements.

Here you will have the opportunity to escape to a destination where time has stood still over the centuries! While still benefiting from all modern luxuries, you will walk through the village’s small alleys to reach the Hotel, you will hear the church bell sound, you will gaze at the stunning views of the Aegean Sea and mountains, you will taste Cretan and Greek dishes from local hands and recipes, you will dance to the Cretan Lyra and you will fully unwind at a cave-like SPA.

The Cressa Suites, with stone and wooden elements, are exquisitely designed to offer discreet luxury to the visitor. Each has a unique design and offers an elevated Cretan style double bed (“ontas”) or a simple double bed, a comfortable seating area, mini-bar and a bathroom.

No two rooms are alike: some of them might include a historic fireplace or a unique decorative oven, or a panoramic terrace with a view. They also offer modern facilities (satellite, flat-screen TV, Nespresso Coffee-Machine, and air conditioning). Most of them offer easy access to the Neighborhood’s courtyard where the picturesque pool is located or they benefit from extra privacy depending on which part of the Neighborhood they are located in.

Your Board Basis

This offer is based on a bed and breakfast stay.

Just for you: 1 complimentary dinner (excluding drinks) when you stay 5 nights or more.

At the panoramic Cressa Iris Restaurant that overlooks the Aegean Sea and the mountains, you will have the opportunity to taste an awakening combination of Cretan and other Greek dishes, some of which originate from Cressa’s own garden.

A journey into real Cretan cuisine is felt at once where the smell of fresh ingredients and fruits pervade and linger in the air and where age old  traditions have been kept alive using organic produce to offer local homemade tastes with our organic olive oil.

Also, the Pool & Snack bar introduces light lunch and all day menu together with new generation cocktails.

Your Time

Just for you: one spa treatment per person per stay; free use of the Hamman, Jacuzzi & Sauna.

Spa
The unique Cressa SPA is a dream destination. Here you can melt away your stress, escape from the pressures of everyday life and rediscover your senses experiencing the hotel's Hamman, Jacuzzi, Sauna and various massages, body treatments and beauty therapies. 

Drawing on the essence of natural therapy philosophies from all over the world combined with locally sourced treatments, a spa experience here, is quite like no other.

Everyone who enters Cressa Spa can indulge in holistic enchantment, can relax and enjoy the summer atmosphere every moment of the day. After a swim, either in the pool or in one of the beautiful beaches of Eastern Crete, enjoy the unique services of the SPA and benefit from a therapy chosen specifically for your needs.

Local Area
From the small, picturesque and guenuinely traditional Cretan village of Sfaka to the peaceful island of Mochlos. From the lively little town of Sitia swaying palm trees of Vai and the nearby oasis oF Kato Zakros: there is so much to explore!
