Paradise Island Villas
Paradise Island Villas are a family-run collection of villas with top-notch personal services.
The boutique bolt-hole that is Paradise Island Villas hits the spot for families seeking an elegant private retreat with the facilities of a 5-star hotel. The sleek styling of the twelve individually designed villas may scream grown-up luxury, but the resort offers plenty to prove it’s super-child friendly, too. Each unique villa, named after a Greek god or goddess, has a private pool and small, secluded garden complete with toys and pool inflatables. Cots, highchairs, stair gates and many other kiddie essentials will be waiting in your villa on arrival and a simple request will get you anything else that’s missing. You can self cater, order room service, or eat at the poolside restaurant, giving you freedom to plan your day around little tummies.
For You -
The muslin-draped beds will woo you and you’re unlikely to tire of the stunning mountain and olive grove views. Gorge on fresh fruit, Greek yogurt and local honey at breakfast time. For a Greek-style feast, the weekly Cretan BBQ shouldn’t be missed. The gym is small, but well equipped, and there’s a tennis court too, should you want to work off your holiday indulgences.
For Them +
Despite lacking a kid’s club, little guests here still get VIP treatment – there’s junior cutlery, small-sized clothes hangers and mini toiletries in-room. There’s a playground and, when it’s time to curl up and relax before bed, a stack of kid’s DVDs are available for them to enjoy.
