An all-inclusive holiday at a five-star beachfront hotel on the northern coast of Crete, with panoramic sea views – includes all travel

Perched on a hillside overlooking the Aegean Sea, the sophisticated soft-pink CHC Athina Palace Resort & Spa is a lovely five-star spot for a sun-drenched break in Crete. Whether you’re drinking in the views from the poolside terrace or splashing around on the shingle beach, you’ll be back to your summer self in no time at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner. If lazing around isn't your style, there’s scuba diving, sailing and snorkelling all on your doorstep.

After a hard day on the beach, head to the spa for a little pampering. Once you’re utterly relaxed, potter down to the resort’s restaurant and see what’s on the changing menu for the evening. With all your meals and drinks included, it’d be rude not to round off your day with a nightcap overlooking the water. Bliss.

CHC Athina Palace Resort & Spa is on the eastern side of Crete’s north coast, just 15 kilometres from the capital city of Heraklion. The historical Palace of Knossos – home to the King Minos and the Minotaur – is a 25-minute drive away and is well worth a visit, and when it's time to switch off, you'll find plenty of beaches and peaceful coves nearby. The pretty fishing village of Agia Pelagia is also within easy reach with its plethora of restaurants and bars.
