Food & Drink

For a fine dining experience, visit the Topos restaurant, which adds international flair to classic Cretan recipes, accompanied by handpicked wines from local wineries. For a fresh light bite, the Raw restaurant serves delicious sushi, with DJs playing relaxed rhythms in the background.


Wake up to a spot of yoga on the beach, and unwind in the lovely spa, which has an indoor pool and a juice bar, before lounging on the glamorous gazebos on the white-sand beach. Dedicated staff are on hand to deliver a glass of bubbles from the Raw Bar by Moet & Chandon - just press the button whenever you fancy a drink: you don't even need to move from your sun lounger!

Relax and watch the waves in the distance from one of the two outdoor pools, which each offer a different experience - one is lively, with DJs spinning the decks, and other is a quiet zone - ideal for hours of reading and chilling out under the Cretan sun.
