Certificate of Excellence
Minos Beach art hotel has been influenced by the traditional architectural style of fishermen’s villages of Eastern Crete. One storey, whitewashed bungalows and villas with terraces and minimal interiors are almost touching the sea. The unique environs of the hotel with its sumptuous gardens and narrow stone paved streets host the 45 works of Greek and foreign artists. In the eastern part of Crete, only a ten-minute walk from the town centre of Agios Nikolaos and a 45-minute drive from the airport of Heraklion. Exquisite decoration features, minimalist forms and Feng-Shui elements enriched by the Greek aesthetics of cotton and wood, handcrafted details, candles and water syntheses, create unique spaces and corners, making your stay in Minos Beach unforgettable. For a truly VIP experience at Minos Beach, we offer one presidential villa and three executive villas with private swimming pools, as well as exclusive bungalows that are literary “caressing” the sea.

All I can say is that I want to go back. Everything from getting picked up from the airport, greeted with ice tea, wine and fruit in the room. To the lovely meal options (I'm vegan so was worried there wouldn't be anything to eat, there were loads of options). Stayed in a suite

A truly relaxing and luxurious holiday. This was our first holiday with our baby and we picked the perfect place! We had worried that the hour's drive from the airport may be an issue but we were picked up by the hotel minivan and it couldn't have been easier. Wonderful welcome
