‘Celebrated Beauty of the Southern Mediterranean’
Gardens lapped by turquoise waters and palm-fringed lagoons swirling past natural stone terraces are the hallmarks of Grecotel Amirandes – a sophisticated beachfront resort that offers the highest standards of Mediterranean luxury and refinement. Styled after the sprawling palaces of the Minoan kings and Venetian nobles who once ruled Crete, Grecotel Amirandes introduces guests to the easy elegance of true European luxury. Amirandes is ideally situated within easy access of Heraklion International Airport and the archaeological site of Knossos. It features 3 refreshing pools - both freshwater and seawater - an extensive and well equipped spa, and a range of incredible dining options from Mediterranean buffet style to stylish Italian cuisines. Guests can dine on the beachfront or atop the lagoon on floating pavilions. Villa residences have access to an exclusive area of the beach with private gazebos, perfect for relaxation on soothing shores.
