Minos Palace Hotel & Suites Summary
Nestled atop a spectacular rocky peninsula and flooded with ocean views, is the 5 star Minos Palace Hotel and Suites. This luxurious hotel is perfect for adults only seeking romance, indulgence and sheer relaxation. For weddings, it is rightfully considered one of the best hotels in Crete.
The Minos Palace Hotel & Suites is the sister hotel to the equally beautiful Minos Beach Art Hotel situated just around the headland. It is, therefore, an ideal choice for wedding couples. Adults only may stay at the Minos Palace and those with children at the Minos Beach Art Hotel.
The proximity to the picturesque villages of Aghios Nikolaos and Elounda allow for lovely afternoons spent shopping for artisan wares at the markets or evenings sipping drinks harbourside. In the hotel itself, you’ll find a never-ending prestige holiday experience, while service that is second to none.
Guests seeking adventure can begin their day with a game of tennis, water sports or diving. As the day unfolds try a swim in the crystal-clear Mirabello Bay, dive into the cool of the pool or head to the serenity of the Spa for treatments that can be as stimulating or soothing as your mood takes you.
The Minos Palace Hotel boasts two of the best restaurants in Crete. Guests can enjoy the Amalthea restaurant were Greek and international dishes are served overlooking the Mirabello Bay. Whereas, the Culinarium Inblu Restaurant, serves alfresco lunches and are best enjoyed on the idyllic terrace with unparalleled sea views. Finally, head to the beachfront ‘Island Bar’ to enjoy a freshly prepared cocktail. The hotel’s elegant bar, Bacchus, with its contemporary nautical decor and menu of classic drinks, local wines and craft coffees is one of our favourites.
Rooms and Suites at the Minos Palace are beautiful spaces. Chunky furniture, crisp linens and Elemis bath amenities complement the chic decor. With no less than ten room categories, you’ll struggle to choose. Rest assured, almost all offer fabulous views of the ocean from the spacious terraces equipped with sumptuous loungers. We love the Waterfall Suites. The abundant 61 sqm suites enjoy a large bedroom, bathroom with walk-in shower and stylish living area. The private terrace boasts a private freshwater pool with waterfall and staggering views of the bay and the town of Agios Nikolaos beyond.
As you would imagine, weddings at the Minos Palace are spectacular affairs. The heady combination of gently lapping ocean, lush green lawns, twinkly lights, gourmet menus and incredible levels of service, make for magical events that your guests will talk of for years to come.
