    Stay in a luxury resort with design villas and bungalows with private pool and sea view on the coast of Crete

    During a stay at the luxury Minos Beach Art Hotel, you can enjoy an authentic atmosphere in an idyllic location on Crete. The artistic decor and architecture, in which different elements of art and nature are uniquely combined, completes the picture. As you walk through the lush gardens, the soothing sound of the sea provides peace and tranquility, and the hospitable staff ensure that you lack nothing.

    The unique design hotel Minos Beach Art Hotel was the first luxury resort to open in the 1960s on Crete and has since done everything to stay on top of the game. It's not surprising that this beautiful hotel is still often visited. Together with the Open Air Art Museum, where you find a gallery with more than 40 works of art, the hotel is a cultural hotspot for guests, but also the local community. The owners of Minos Beach Art Hotel believe that it is important for you as a guest to really experience the local culture, which is why you find elements of it in various services throughout the hotel. Take the menus for instance, they are inspired by traditional flavours of the island and made with local ingredients.

Here, as a guest, you can immerse yourself in a complete world of peace and wellness. Rediscover yourself and feel reborn after choosing from one of the many spa treatments and fitness activities. From short facials and two-hour full-body massages to yoga sessions on the beach, this is what you call ultimate relaxation. Natural ingredients such as lavender, seaweed, olive oil and sea salt are used during the treatments.
