Your Destination

Situated on gently sloping grounds and with a delightful 300 metre stretch of private coastline, the Elounda Mare is located 70 km to the east of Heraklion International Airport. The town of Aghios Nikolaos and the small village of Elounda are at a distance of 7 km and 2 km away respectively.

A wonderful melting pot of sparkling night spots, fresh seafood, sizzling Mediterranean passion and mythical legend, Crete is a fascinating and enchanting destination - perfect for lounging on a sandy beach or exploring ancient relics. The nearby Spinalonga Island, the second most visited attraction in Crete, is an abandoned fortress on a small island filled with pebble beaches. This unoccupied island is easily accessible from Elounda and Aghios Nikolaos as tourist boats depart from both towns on a daily basis.

Aghios Nikolaos is close to this resort and is a historic coastal town built on a lake! It is the capital of the Lasithi province, built on the western side of the Gulf of Mirabello around the famous Voulismeni or Apatos lake. According to the colourful Greek Myth, the goddesses Athena and Artemis bathed in this lake and it is bottomless!  Situated nearby is Knossos Palace, the largest Bronze Age archaeological site in Crete and probably the ceremonial and political centre of the Minoan civilization and culture.

Elounda Mare Relais & Châteaux‎ 5*

This gorgeous hotel from the internationally acclaimed Relais & Chateaux brand is an absolute paradise for food lovers, sun worshippers and spa aficionados.  With a host of awards for its gourmet dining and Six Senses Spa (located in sister hotel approximately 500 metres away) this luxurious property most definitely lives up to the hype. Set in a beautiful location on the exclusive Mirabello Bay, 5* facilities, impeccable service and stunning views make this hotel the perfect choice for a truly memorable and relaxing holiday.

Renowned for its genuine warmth and friendliness, the Elounda Mare Hotel proudly upholds a tradition spanning twenty years of excellence in courtesy and cuisine. Honoured in 1987 as the first member in Greece of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux® association, the Elounda Mare Hotel exudes the refined qualities that characterise such distinctive properties.

Built as a Cretan mansion, the Elounda Mare Hotel is a jewel of traditional architecture and design, with gems of antique furniture and artwork adorning the halls and accommodations. Each lounge and open space reflects the integrity of style and originality of expression that make the Elounda Mare so attractive. It is no wonder that many guests consider it their home away from home.

Some services may incur additional charges, payable locally.
