Minos Beach Art Hotel in Crete – Luxury and Comfort for your Family
You and your family deserve only the best for your vacation in Greece. If you are planning to visit the scenic island of Crete and explore the eastern side of the island, the 5-star hotel Minos Beach Art Hotel is the top choice.
Minos Beach Art Hotel is located on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Agios Nikolaos. Imagine you and your kids strolling around in a small paradise full of pine trees, with breathtaking sea views and plenty of activities for the whole family.
The hotel is an open art museum where you can see amazing collections of Greek artists and walk around the masterpieces. The collection offers you and your children the opportunity to get a better understanding of Greek and local culture, combined with interactive activities.
Traditional and Minimal Family Stay
At Minos Beach Art Hotel, traditional Cretan architecture meets minimalist and boho-chic culture. This amazing fusion reflects the balance of mind and spirit for your relaxation and serenity.
At the hotel, you can stay in either luxurious and pristine bungalows or villas. Some accommodations have a private pool, but all offer either stunning sea or garden views.
The philosophy behind the decor is simple yet powerful; a beautiful mix of minimal earthy colors with Cretan black and wooden elements. This combination allows you to reconnect with nature and feel the ambient atmosphere.
Kid-Friendly Water Adventures
Located in the stunning and kid-friendly Mirabello Bay. You have access to two private golden beaches. One of them is near Amoudi beach and feels more urban as it offers a view of Agios Nikolaos. The view of the other beach is Mirabello beach and it feels more isolated and peaceful.
Hotel Minos Beach Art offers water sports on-site so you and your family can enjoy activities such as snorkeling, diving, canoeing and windsurfing. If you prefer to spend the day at the resort and you are not staying in a room with a private pool, you can definitely use the large communal pool. In the pool area, you’ll find large sun loungers and hammocks. If you love swimming workouts, then the pool is the best option for you.
There are two beaches and one swimming pool, but there are several swimming spots with loungers throughout the hotel. If you want a snack or refreshment while you are in the pool, the pool bar is just a few meters away.
Ultimate Mediterranean Culinary Experience
The hotel’s award-winning team will provide you and your family with the ultimately culinary experience. Meals are inspired by Greek and Cretan flavors based on the Mediterranean diet. The traditional and simple ingredients are the key to a fantastic meal.
If you prefer to eat out, there are many family-friendly options at Agios Nikolaos. However, the best option is Achinos Restaurant within walking distance of the hotel, which serves traditional seafood and Cretan dishes.
Thrilling Activities for the Family
During your vacation, you and your children will definitely want to try new things and if you are an active family, you will love the many fun activities. Your kids will love sports (tennis courts) and outdoor activities.
Outside the complex, you can go for lovely walks, bike rides or hikes in the green countryside. If your children prefer to stay in the facilities, they will go crazy with the playroom and movie nights.
Also, as mentioned earlier, there is an exhibition of temporary art. There are about 50 modern art installations throughout the hotel, all very unique and extraordinary. The owner of the hotel is an art lover herself and invited each artist to the hotel before commissioning the artwork. The artists are inspired and make the art on-site.
The spa facilities and fitness center are options for those who want to take advantage of all the facilities.
