Nestling along the northern shores of Crete, overlooking Mirabello Bay in the exclusive resort of Elounda, the Elounda Mare Hotel is the quintessence of refined classic luxury in every sense. The hotel’s consummate reputation for personalised attentive service, gourmet cuisine, sophisticated style and exclusivity, acquired over the last twenty-five years, precedes it, placing the Elounda Mare at the very top of the hospitality industry in Greece.
With a secluded frontage onto the turquoise waters of the bay, two private sheltered sandy coves and immaculately manicured gardens, this is truly an unparalleled location of outstanding natural beauty. Wondering through the grounds amongst the olive trees and villas, some of which go right down to the water’s edge with their own gardens and private pools, or along the rocky shoreline with its terraced seating areas under carob trees, you can appreciate the prosperity of the surroundings.
Dining at the Elounda Mare is more than just a gastronomic experience having a choice of no less than seven restaurants at three hotels, with several theme nights hosted at different beachside locations thrown in as well. The adjoining Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort and Elounda Peninsula ALL SUITE HOTEL, both sister hotels within walking distance, provide an extra dimension and gastronomic interest offering a choice of Asian, French, Italian, Cretan or Mediterranean cuisine between them. It’s therefore no coincidence that two of the eighteen best restaurants in Greece are to be found at the Elounda Mare and the Elounda Peninsula hotels.
As you would expect the range of accommodation is equally enticing, with a choice of rooms and luxurious suites in the main hotel building or in individual bungalows located throughout the grounds. The burnt umber, charcoal greys and earthy ochre tones of the stone walls adorning the bungalows, add richness to the verdant greens of the lawns and flora that pervade the borders and terraces surrounding the rooms. The Elounda Mare Hotel is undoubtedly one of the finest hotels in Greece and will not disappoint.
