About Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites

This intimate villa suite complex is ultra-luxurious, drawing A-list celebrities, including sports stars like Ronaldo and singer Lady Gaga. Nestled into a cliff overlooking the sparkling Aegean Sea, it’s just steps from the water bringing countless opportunities for relaxation and adventure with everything from a wealth of water sports to horseback riding, helicopter tours and indulgent massages at the sumptuous spa.


This luxury property has just 18 villas, each of which has its own private infinity pool, along with 15 elegant suites that hug the hillside providing breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mirabello, the sea and Spinalong Island. The villas not only come with saltwater infinity pools and panoramic sea views, but well-equipped kitchens too. Larger options also add a steam room, sauna and gym area. Honeymooners and other romance-seeking couples may want to book one of the massage suites at the top of the complex which come with their own spa treatment room as well as a lap pool surrounded by a pretty garden area. The property also hosts a main outdoor saltwater pool, Jacuzzi and a lavish spa providing pampering treatments and full-body massage. When you want to get more active, there’s a long list of options, including windsurfing, diving, sailing, water skiing and horseback riding. Or, just head up into the skies taking in the scenery from a bird’s-eye view with a helicopter tour. If you’re traveling with kids, the hotel’s Kid’s Club will keep them entertained while you indulge.
