About Minos Palace

Minos Palace is an adults-only hotel boasting stunning panoramic vistas from just outside Agios Nikolaos in eastern Crete as is the only luxury property on the island that offers 360-degree sea views. It has its own stretch of beach, a beautiful infinity pool, a spa and multiple dining options.


Located just over a mile from the cobbled streets of Agios Nikolaos with its seaside taverns, Minos Palace offers a luxurious stay that includes a magnificent, large dark-bottomed saltwater infinity pool surrounded by loungers and day beds where guests can gaze out at stunning views of the glistening expanse of the Aegean Sea. Look forward to taking advantage of the private beach, taking part in fun water sports, strolling through fragrant gardens or even taking a yoga class. After a day of play, the hotel’s spa offers a perfect spot for pampering and relaxation, including massage. The property also hosts a library, tennis courts and billiard tables. All accommodations extend out onto furnished terrace or balconies and come with either a partial or full sea view. For the ultimate stay book one of the sea-view suites that comes with a private pool as well as separate sleeping and living areas. Dining is enjoyed at the high quality Kulinarium beach tavern overlooking the bay, or in the Amalthea restaurant which services a variety of Greek staples and international fare, with some sea view tables.


Less than a mile from Agios Nikolaos in the eastern part of Crete; one hour’s drive east of Heraklion ferries and just under an hour east of Heraklion International Airport.
