A PRIVATE JEWEL ALONG THE LUSH WATERFRONT OF CRETE IN THE GREEK ISLANDS, MONOS ART HOTEL WELCOMES DREAMERS TO LOSE THEMSELVES IN THE ENDLESS BLUE HORIZONS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN
BY ARCHANA AITHAL ROSE
Rising from windswept stretches of golden sand that culminate in a verdant Mediterranean park, Minos Art Hotel prides itself on offering guests a private and quiet bay to detox and unwind. Located in the municipality of Agios Nikolaos in eastern Crete, this five-star resort is appointed with 121 luxurious bungalows and villas. Decked out with private plunge pools and spacious terraces, each villa gazes onto a mile and a half of coastline, offering snapshots of the region’s quaint fishing villages. Wake up to the sounds of lapping waves before jumping into the transparent waters. The villas are available in either one or two-bedroom configurations and were designed to echo the minimalist aesthetic Greece is famed for, featuring feng shui elements and accents like natural wool, soft cotton, and warm wood. The resort’s picturesque amenities include an open-air Art Museum with a 40-piece collection of contemporary art, including several works by local artisans in a bespoke sculpture garden. The hotel is a foodie’s paradise, home to three restaurants that serve a fusion of Mediterranean classics and international flavors. For a truly out-of-the ordinary experience, the staff will even indulge guests with a fresh, floating breakfast in the privacy of your villa.
