About Elounda Mare

This luxury hotel is the only Relais & Chateaux property in Crete, providing a five-star retreat that includes a private beach, a gorgeous pool with stunning sea views and multiple dining options. For the most unforgettable stay, book a room with a plunge pool and you won’t have to share those refreshing dips, other than with the one you love.


Everything about the secluded Elounda Mare Hotel is five-star, from the private sandy beach with breathtaking Mirabello Bay views dotted with umbrellas and loungers to the bungalows with their own private plunge pools. You won’t have to leave the property unless you really want to with so much to do right onsite. While there are plenty of opportunities for relaxing and enjoying the postcard-perfect scenery, you can also enjoy pampering in the spa, playing a round of golf, enjoying a wealth of water sports at the beach or swim in the main pool. The property also hosts multiple outstanding dining options, including al fresco options, and several chic bars for sipping refreshing cocktails. Families with kids will appreciate the many activities for the young ones as well, including a separate pool area for toddlers to teens that includes waterslides, a playground, soccer camp and even dance lessons. Honeymooning couples don’t have to worry about things getting to chaotic, as the hotel mostly draws more mature guests, retaining a tranquil atmosphere.
