Throughout their stay, guests are taken on a gastronomic journey, starting at one of the resort’s six multi-cuisine restaurants and eight bars. Dishes are prepared using fresh ingredients, with fruits, vegetables, and herbs either grown and handpicked from the resort’s own organic greenhouses or sourced locally. Rich buffets serving different dishes every day, delicious Italian comfort food with an Aegean backdrop, amazing mix-grill cuisine, fresh fish caught locally and heavenly traditional Greek dishes to satisfy even the most demanding palate.
Crete is a fantastic mosaic of marvellous beaches, ancient ruins, and breath-taking scenery. Its lively cities and picturesque villages are inhabited by wonderful people generously sharing their traditions, heavenly cuisine, and proud way of life. The landscape can change tremendously, with a distinct contrast between the north side of the island with its long, sandy beaches, large cities, and booming nightlife, and the south coast where the terrain is rougher with a fascinating relief, mountainous roads, and small villages.
Crete can be cosmopolitan, traditional, isolated, busy, offering diverse experiences depending on the visitor’s requirements, as there are great options for everyone. Crete’s gastronomy is a topic of its own. With a booming farming industry that makes the island self-sustainable for most products, Crete has a large variety of superb quality vegetables, meats, and seafood. Traditional recipes handed down between generations take full advantage of these ingredients, creating enchanting flavours that will make anyone fall in love with this corner of the world.
