Minos Beach Art Hotel - Shaped by Cretan land, nurtured by human touch

An ever-evolving waterfront hideaway that encapsulates the timeless beauty of art, culture, and nature. Stretching along 2km of coastline, 125 low-lying whitewashed bungalows, villas, and suites are scattered amongst the natural landscape. Each villa has a private pool, and bungalows are mere steps from the shore. Inside, modernity and muted earthy tones meld seamlessly with natural textures and Cretan patterns.

Admire the expansive collection of contemporary art of the G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation that is spread around the hotel and its Sculpture Garden, containing over 55 seminal works by Greek and international artists. La Bouillabaisse is ideal for lovers of fine dining, serving refined Mediterranean dishes and sweeping views of the sea. Live cooking stations and a Greek buffet selection abound at Bacchus, while Terpsis’ authentic Cretan fair delights in a casual al fresco setting. Tantalize the senses with degustation menus and private dining in any location you desire. With a focus on sustainable hospitality and farm-to-table dining, ingredients are sourced from trusted local suppliers.

The plethora of bars offer signature cocktails inspired by herbs native to the island. La Cave is a seafront wine bar, while Pure Lounge Bar serves refreshments and light bites to your sunbed. Dionyssos Bar is an elegant sand-covered lounge with bonfire, and the Ibiscus Poolside Bar offers a refreshing escape from the heat. For a more traditional experience the Cretan kafenion, Adeste.

Be immersed in Cretan ambiance with trips to local villages to experience island life. Stroll along two pristine private beaches, dive into Mirabello Bay from swimming platforms or take a dip in the freshwater pool. Take wellbeing to new heights at the Aegeo Spa and gym. Play a round of tennis, zip along on bicycles, or take on the ocean with the certified Pelagos diving and watersports center. Join the locals as they flock to the hotel’s kafenion, known for nights filled with traditional Cretan music.

While only walking distance from the town of Agios Nikolaos, and one hour by car from the Heraklion International Airport, Minos Beach art, the first luxury hotel in Crete, is a haven of privacy, tranquility, and warm local hospitality.
