Secluded and peaceful, and set on the outskirts of Agios Nikolaos, St Nicolas Bay is a dreamy Crete retreat with superb access to the island’s finest experiences, including Spinalonga.
Highlights include the gardens and open-air cinema, as well as the private beach and direct sea access from many of the villas, ideal for keen snorkelers.
At this boutique hotel, designed and owned by an architect, you can expect exceptional design, with contemporary open spaces showcasing sea views at every opportunity. A range of accommodation options ensure a perfect spot for every guest, from sleek sea view rooms to spacious private villas.
There are five different restaurants and two bars to choose from, with live music and local flavours ensuring an authentic Cretan experience. We suggest when dining at The Greek Kafenion you request a table overlooking the harbour next to the chapel, wonderfully romantic, with the water in the harbour underlit at night to create an atmospheric scene.
For families there are child-friendly facilities including babysitting, kids menus and a kids’ club, while teens and active guests will love the watersports. The Poseidon Spa offers Elemis treatments, its own pool and relaxation facilities.
Thinking of saying ‘I do’ on the romantic Greek isle? Then the small, private Greek chapel next to the hotel’s Kafenion restaurant is available for weddings and blessings.
