The 5-star Avra Imperial Beach Resort & Spa is set within 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 & wine, fantastic views and a lavishing spa.

The modern rooms are decorated in soothing 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,  a spacious lounge area, and a sun terrace or balcony. During your stay, you can enjoy fine dining at one of the five hotel restaurants. Choose from traditional Cretan cuisine, Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes, and classic Italian food.

Take a swim in one of the stunning sparkling pools. After that, pamper yourself with a massage or beauty treatment in the luxury Spa by APIVITA. Here you'll also find an indoor pool, 2 pool water jets, 6 stainless steel hydro massage loungers, a Jacuzzi...and much, much more! Or why not 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. What about the kids? They are absolutely spoilt for choice as well. The Avra Imperial is ideal for a family holiday thanks to its two children pools, the Alpha Crèche open for all babies aged 4 months to 3 years, Alpha Kids Club, and the Teen Vault for teenagers aged 12-17.

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'll 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.
