Avra Imperial Beach Resort and Spa

Kolymbari, Crete, Greek Islands
Great room. Delicious food. Tasty breakfast. Great location. Fantastic service. Awesome vibe. Good internet service. Great pool. Great wellness & sports facilities.

The 5-star Avra Imperial Hotel is set with beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking Kolymbari Beach and the tranquil blue waters of the Mediterranean, on the Greek Island of Crete. The hotel boasts fine food, fantastic views and a very swish spa.

The modern rooms are decorated using warm tones, and feature parquet flooring throughout. Each room is fully equipped with air conditioning, flatscreen satellite TV, hydro-jet shower, a large bathtub set in a marble bathroom, and a spacious lounge area. You will also have access to a sun terrace or balcony. During your stay, you can enjoy fine dining at one of the five hotel restaurants; these serve traditional Cretan cuisine, Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes, and classic Italian food. Do take a swim in one of the stunning pools. After that, pamper yourself with a massage or beauty treatment in the luxury spa, or take a stroll around the beautiful palm-filled gardens. If you want to keep your body active after a few days of sunbathing, you’ll find everything you need to keep fit in the fully equipped gym and tennis courts.

While the Avra Imperial Beach Resort & Spa feels secluded and peaceful, it's just a five-minute walk to the centre of Kolymbari where you will find shops, fantastic seafront restaurants and the stunning 14th-century Odigitria Monastery. If you’d like to taste authentic Greek wine, a tour of the nearby Karavitakis Winery is a must. For those who would like to scuba-dive or snorkel in the clear waters of the Cretan sea, boat cruises depart daily from the village port.
