Malia is famed for its lively nightlife. That’s something you can enjoy at the Royal Heights, but it’s definitely a choice in this mountain setting that’s just a couple of minutes’ drive from the town centre but which is beautifully peaceful itself.

The Royal Heights Resort is comprised of a collection of 30 suites and villas, all of them with tons of extras that are sure to tick all of your special-treat boxes. While the kids can stay active and entertained in the playground and swimming pool, the gym, hammam, sauna, massage and spa together make up a fantastic health and well-being service for the adults. You’ll also feed your spirit – and your tan! – in pretty gardens, by the shimmering pool, or on sun terraces with beautiful views of the sea and the surrounding mountains.

Five-star means that every need should be met, and from 24-hour reception to an on-site currency exchange; a beauty salon to babysitting services, the Royal Heights Resort has earned its rating. It’s also a popular wedding venue, with all the extra services you need for the best day of your life.

Malia is a real pick and mix destination, so visitors are free to make their holiday whatever they want it to be. A big sandy beach, water sports and a great choice of vibrant bars and clubs brings in the crowds who love to party by night. But Malia is also home to some of Crete’s best archaeological sites, and a short drive inland will put you at exclusive golf clubs or isolated traditional villages.
