When arriving at Elounda, the first view from the hilltop is a panorama of the Bay of Mirabello, where the foreground is dominated by the Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort and the green expanse of its golf course. Designed with respect to architectural tradition, this unique resort is an oasis or recreation. With the Six Senses Spa on site and the resort’s very own 9 hole par-3 golf course, Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort has much to offer.
This fantastic resort boasts its own 9 hole par 3 golf course; the perfect place for beginners to try their hand at the game, or, for more seasoned players to hone their skills. The mountains of Crete provide the perfect backdrop for the golf course at Crete Golf Club which is just 40 minutes from Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort.
The amazing Six Senses Spa, recognized as the “World’s Best Spa” by the Sunday Times Travel Magazine, provides a truly relaxing and revitalizing experience, through many forms of holistic healings to balance the senses. The luxuriously appointed spa spreads over 2.200m2, setting unique standards in spa design. The hotel is also home to two tennis courts, a well-equipped gym and endless water sports options, including a PADI-certified scuba diving centre.
Right between the shopping arcade and the beach, tucked away under the olive grove, is the Italian Restaurant “Aglio e Olio”, while a little further along the beach, at the little marina, is the “Odysseus” restaurant, right on the water’s edge, serving lunch in the high season with a superb selection of fresh seafood.
