Your Destination

The ancient island of Crete is the fifth-largest in the Mediterranean, and home to a magical tapestry of splendid beaches, ancient treasures, vibrant cities and dreamy villages. Historically the home of Europe’s first advanced civilization, the Minoans, it has since been ruled by Romans, the Venetian Republic, and the Ottoman Empire, and this melting pot of cultures influences Crete’s vibrant atmosphere.

On the north shore,
Heraklion is the island’s largest city and capital, where you can see the archaeological site of Knossos and the Historical Museum of Crete. Then, venture east to see some of the island’s unspoiled gems like fishing village Agios Nikolaus. Boasting over 1000km of coastline, there are plenty of stunning beaches to enjoy - seek out Balos for its Caribbeanesque white sand and turquoise waters, or see the largest palm tree forest in Europe at Vai beach.

To escape the heat in the summer, venture inland to the
island’s dramatic mountains - hike the length of Samaria Gorge and get lost in its winding river path, or experience thrilling views from Giouchtas mountain. At the end of a long day, sample some authentic Cretan hospitality and seafood at a local restaurant - this is the perfect place for a diverse, sun-soaked holiday!

The Royal Senses

If you're looking for a stylish resort to spend a sun-soaked island break, The Royal Senses is the place! With modern interiors and a host of facilities for adults and children alike, you're bound to have an exciting stay here.
