With a nine-hole golf course, an award-winning spa, and a private Blue Flag beach, the Porto Elounda Golf and Spa Resort in Crete promises a luxurious break. Situated in Mirabello Bay, the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea provide views, seafood and a host of activities, from scuba diving to sailing.
New for 2019, the recently added new pool concept comes accompanied by day-beds and cabanas offering added privacy and beautiful views. The largest seafront pool on the island, it blends into the curve of the land and will be heated during cooler periods. A separated children’s pool contains shallower and safer waters.
The Porto Elounda Golf and Spa Resort has no less than eight different restaurants, including the family friendly seafront Odysseas restaurant, which serves fresh fish and Greek cuisine. The Aglio e Olio restaurant is the place for Italian food, while Koh dishes up pan-Asian plates. There is also a fine dining option at the Old Mill. A traditional buffet breakfast and a Mediterranean style dinner are served in the poolside Nafsika restaurant, while the Yacht Club sits on the rocks above the beach and sea.
There is a choice of rooms available at the Porto Elounda Golf and Spa Resort which all have a balcony or a terrace and a sea view. A number of rooms also have private seawater pools. The air-conditioned rooms are furnished with an LCD flat screen television, a luxurious bathroom with robes and slippers, and a choice of hypoallergenic or feather pillows.
There is a fully equipped gym, three AstroTurf tennis courts with professional instructors on hand, and a bike rental and service station complete with route plans for all cycling abilities. The hotel’s nine-hole par-three golf course is a popular choice, and the Crete Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course, is 30 minutes away and has special discounted rates for hotel guests. If you are looking for something less energetic there is an indoor games room with billiards, card tables and pinball machines.
The hotel’s Six Senses Spa combines natural products with high-tech beauty treatments and expert advice. You could enjoy a personalised wellness programme that promises to improve sleep, or have a weight management plan created to suit your lifestyle. Otherwise simply relax during a massage or facial. Even the children have a spa at the Porto Elounda Golf and Spa Resort. Six Senses Kids offers yoga classes, nutritional workshops and healthy food to be enjoyed over one day or three-day packages.
For 3 to 16-year-olds there is the Valencia CF Soccer School Camp. It is open to children of all abilities and aims to be fun, as well as teaching some technical aspects of the game. Dance classes, golf lessons and swimming teachers are also on hand to make sure the younger guests are fully entertained during their stay, leaving you to sit back and relax.
For all the hotel’s luxury activities, it is Mirabello Bay and the Aegean Sea that really take centre stage at this resort. It provides the backdrop to your holiday and the lapping water provides a soothing soundtrack. Learn to scuba dive at the hotel’s PADI-certified diving centre, or try water skiing or wakeboarding with the hotel’s experienced coaches.
