Hotel Elounda Mare

Elounda Beach, Agios Nikolaos, Crete

Elounda Mare RoomHotel Elounda Mare, member of the Relais & Chateaux chain since 1988, is a de-luxe hotel built on gently sloping land on Mirabello Bay 2 kms from the pretty village of Elounda.  It comprises of 80 units, 37 rooms and suites in the main building and 43 bungalows and bungalow suites.  The hotel has a private coastline of 300m so all rooms in the main building and bungalows face the sea.   All 37 rooms and suites in the main building have a balcony or terrace and a wonderful sea-view.  The suites have a separate bedroom and sitting room with balcony and the superior suites are similar to the standard suites but bigger and have a large terrace with a panoramic view of Mirabello Bay and the Aegean.

The bungalows have individual air-conditioning units and include a sea water swimming pool that is either private (most of them heated) or shared with the neighbouring bungalow.  Most of the swimming pools are heated in early spring and late fall.

Elounda Mare Private PoolBungalows with a private pool and garden are larger than the standard bungalows with shared pools.  The smallest among them, the 'studio' has extra sitting space, the 'suite' bungalows have a separate bedroom and sitting room and the 2 or 3-bedroom 'suite' bungalows have more than one bedroom each with a separate bathroom.  All units have been individually designed and tastefully decorated.  If you want to be treated to special VIP service in the lap of luxury then a bungalow with a private pool could be an answer to that dream. 

The Presidential suites are luxurious one or two bedroom suites with a spacious living room and open fire-place.  They are located near the sea and all have a private heated seawater swimming pool (most of them heated).  The King Minos Suite is the jewel in the crown, even offering a private health club with sauna, steam bath and fitness equipment. 

All rooms and bungalows have elegant marble bathrooms, most of them with air-bath tubs as well as a separate shower enclosure.  Facilities in the rooms include air-conditioning, direct dial telephone, colour satellite TV, in-house music, mini bar, safe, hair-dryer, bathrobes and slippers.  In addition all bungalows are equipped with a sunshade and deck chairs and beach towels. 

At the 'Karavia Bar' you can sip your drinks at sundown while listening to soft piano music and gazing out at the evening sky over Mirabello bay.  You have a choice of three different restaurants, the 'Deck Restaurant' for a buffet breakfast and five-course Table d'Hote dinner, the 'Yacht Club Restaurant' open daily for lunch that shares evenings with the 'Old Mill Restaurant', a fine a-la-carte restaurant where snacks are served during the day in the shade of olive and carob trees and formal dress is required in the evenings for a romantic dinner.

A large heated seawater swimming pool and a paddling pool for children are situated in the front of the hotel and lawns and terraces extend along the shore where sunshades and deck chairs are provided free of charge.  Sea sports including water-skiing and SCUBA diving tuition are organised by the hotel, and canoes, pedaloes, windsurfs and a sailing boat for charter are at your disposal.

Other facilities of the hotel include two tennis courts (artificial grass) with instructor, table-tennis, a chapel, art gallery, souvenir shop, boutiques, jewellery shop, hairdresser, sauna, steam bath room, massage, gymnasium, car rental, a laundry and dry cleaning service, a limousine service and a newsstand.  

It shares an executive nine-hole golf course with its sister hotel, Porto Elounda De Luxe Resort, just 500m away.

 The Conference Room seats 150 persons and two smaller meeting rooms are also available.
