Perched above the magnificent Gulf of Mirabello, the family-run & owned Elounda Gulf Villas, offers luxurious accommodations in the region of Elounda. Combining high-end facilities and services with a cozy ambiance and warm hospitality, this award-winning villa hotel will make you feel comfortable and well taken care of.

The facilities include 15 suites and 18 pool villas that promise privacy, relaxation, and opulence. With a clientele that includes celebrities, politicians, and royals, first-class services and amenities are guaranteed. All of the luxury villas and suites look out to the shimmering Aegean Sea and have their own individual design that features marble, antique furnishings, or trompe l’oeil ceilings in the bathrooms. They consist of 1-4 master bedrooms, a private swimming pool with a built-in jacuzzi, a sun terrace, large living rooms, and fully-equipped kitchens.

On top of all that, the Spa Villas also boast a private in-villa spa with a private gym room, sauna, and steam bath! Regardless, the luxury villas have direct access to the main pool area and the children’s pool. Even if these are not your preferable swimming setting, in Elounda Gulf Villas you are able to lie under the bright sun and dive into the crystal clear waters of the hotel’s Private Beach Club.

You can enjoy indulgent local flavors of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine in the ‘Argo’ and ‘Daphni’ Restaurants and drink creative mouthwatering cocktails in the ‘Argonauts’ Bar. For moments of complete bliss and tranquility, you can enjoy the services of the Elixir Spa Gallery and explore its many aspects; from a fully-equipped fitness room to a rejuvenating massage, a visit to the sauna and the outdoor jacuzzi, you’ll feel pampered and rejuvenated!

Why we love it

Elounda Gulf Villas’ ‘Cool Creche & Kids’ Club’ ensures that your whole family remains engaged and satisfied throughout your trip through fun and engaging activities.

While both of the hotel’s restaurants are exquisite, the exclusive in-room experience is unbeatable; especially the in-villa BBQ will sweep you off of your feet!

Opt for the al fresco full-body massage and relax in the middle of an idyllic Cretan landscape.

If you have the luxury of choice, choose the ‘Spa Pool Villas’ and escape in a world of private heated pools and in-built spa facilities.

In and around

Elounda Gulf Villas is located in Elounda, one of the most prestigious regions of Crete. From Lenika, you can see the whole gulf of Mirabello and the lagoon of Elounda, with the large peninsula of Spinalonga joining Crete with a very narrow strip of land. In the background are the picturesque Plaka and the long-suffering island of Spinalonga, a UNESCO monument of outstanding value featuring Minoan, Venetian and Ottoman ruins. After continuing on the road, you will reach the small town of Skisma. It is not impressive, but it offers a wide variety of dining options. Next, you will see the old stone windmills and a magnificent bridge in one of the most picturesque places in Crete. Under the bridge, there is a very narrow canal, the Poros, which was opened by the French Army in 1897 to connect the Gulf of Mirabello with the gulf of Corfu. 

Taste delectable creations of Cretan cuisine in ‘Lotus Eaters Mediterranean Restaurant,’ ‘Vritomartes Restaurant,’ and ‘Paradosiako.’ For your evening drinks, visit ‘Alyggos Bar,’ ‘BEERaki Cretan Pub,’ or ‘Malibu Cafe Bar.’ If you want to further explore the wild nature of Crete, then our From Chania: Day-Trip to 7 Traditional Cretan Villages with lunch is the perfect activity for you. Admire the luscious Cretan nature and learn about the different villages. End the experience with a scrumptious Cretan lunch, and this will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!
