Avra Imperial Beach Resort and Spa
Next to the quiet Kolymbari beach sits the impressive Avra Imperial Beach Resort and Spa, which is fit for the whole family.
For a slice of peaceful luxury head to the Avra Imperial Beach Resort and Spa. Just a few minutes walk to the rustic fishing port of Kolympari, it’s worlds away from the mass tourist areas of North Western Crete, rendering it perfect for lazy days and calm evenings. It’s minimalist in design and, depending on your family’s size, has a choice of sleek, comfortable, well-equipped rooms and suites. The deluxe suites prove a winner with older children due to the inter-connecting rooms, allowing a little space and privacy for all. You also get a second bathroom, which can be handy during that pre-dinner shower dash.
For You -
Sun-soaked beach hair isn’t necessary, thanks to the on-site hairdresser. You can also prettify fingers and toes with a visit to the nail salon. The grown-ups only spa area offers a heated pool, water jets, mist and Scottish showers, Jacuzzis and a Finnish sauna, plus plenty of healing and aromatherapy treatments to help you really unwind. When you’re ready to leave the resort, take a trip to Chania for it’s Venetian harbour, old port and delightful winding maze of shopping streets.
For Them +
There’s two children’s swimming pools, a fantastic kids club and a nearby beach for them to enjoy. Take beach shoes, however, as the shoreline is pebbly.
