Thalassa Villas

‘Distinguished Hospitality & Inspirational Villas’

Thalassa Villas is a small complex located at St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas in Crete. It is home to a selection of individual luxury villas, all under the umbrella name of ‘Thalassa Villas’. Each villa benefits from a captivating location overlooking the Mirabello Bay and the Aegean Sea, as well as private pathways to the sea, so you can either relax poolside or venture down to the ocean. 4 of the Three Bedroom Thalassa Villas have authentic Greek names – Hermes House, Helios, Hera’s Place and Flisvos – and any of these villas can be allocated upon arrival. Each residence offers the same facilities: well-equipped kitchens, spacious lounges, comfortable outdoor spaces, and hydro massage infinity pools, but individual designs differ, ensuring each stay is unique. Other villas aside from the Three Bedroom Villa are also available to guests on request. In addition to the extensive in-villa facilities and amenities, guests can also make use of the services from the neighbouring St. Nicolas Bay Hotel.
