Just the two of us — Crete for couples

When three’s a crowd, escape to Crete and the adults-only Minos Palace hotel & suites, one of the best resorts in Crete for couples; simply the perfect getaway just for two!

Crete is a large island of over 3000 square miles, meaning there’s plenty of space for everyone! Discover secluded beaches, remote mountains and quiet villages, all perfect for enjoying private, quality time with your nearest and dearest.

Milatos is a tiny fishing village located between the resort towns of Malia and Elounda, surrounded by beautiful green countryside and adjacent to a quiet, sandy beach. The village is situational a few kilometres inland, meaning it escapes the crowds of mid-summer, and provides the perfect place for a day of local sightseeing. Choose from the many tavernas serving fresh fish straight off the boats, or simply enjoy a cool iced coffee in the shade of a local kafeneion.

Which beaches to explore

Voulisma beach is located 12km east of Agios Nikolaos, close to the village of Istro. This beautiful beach has gleaming white sand and stunning turquoise waters, but can get busy in the peak summer months. However, a short walk along the rocky peninsula to one side leads visitors to the small beach of Hartalamis, a small stretch of pebbly ground that is perfect for quiet moments away from the crowds!

Closer to home, Minos Palace hotel & suites is the perfect location for couples, being an adults-only hotel with unique, 360-degree sea views and a range of services & activities perfect for two. Enjoy massages, body-wraps, facials and other relaxing treatments at the Ananea Wellness by Aegeo Spa, perfect for unwinding after a long flight.

Meanwhile, honeymooners will be glad to discover this haven of luxury and privacy, where the friendly staff are glad to go above and beyond to offer newlyweds a flawless honeymoon experience. Enjoy unique flower arrangements and complimentary champagne upon arrival, as well as an exclusive, romantic dinner under the stars upon request. 

Discover the very best of the island from your base at Minos Palace hotel & suites, Crete’s best resort for couples, 360 degree sea-view hotel.
