ReserveInquireView Rates

The 5* Elounda Mare Hotel overlooks Mirabello Bay on the north coast of the island of Crete. Since 1988 it has been a member of the international Relais & Chateaux hotel chain.

Elounda Mare is a delight of traditional Cretan architecture and interior design. The typical whitewashed surfaces bind harmoniously with the brown and grey rock walls and the local carob and olive trees. The decoration is exclusively antique pieces of folk art: carpets, chests, tapestries, mantelpieces, and fine Cretan marble throughout the halls and salons.
