Cretan Malia Park
Nestled amongst lush gardens, white sand beaches and the calm, crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean, Cretan Malia Park enjoys a perfect location.
As one of the most unique and special beachfront hotels in Crete, the resort is just 30 minutes away from Heraklion International Airport, the island’s biggest airport.
Easily accessible yet surrounded by nature, Cretan Malia Park Hotel is also an ideal base for visitors wishing to combine a laidback holiday with exploring Crete’s historic riches and charming tradition. Sites such as the Minoan Palace of Knossos and the Lassithi Plateau, not to mention the welcoming towns of Heraklion and Panagia Kera, are all close by.
At Cretan Malia Park, all of our recently renovated accommodation has been designed and furnished to reflect our sustainable, nature-inspired approach to holistic relaxation and effortless elegance. Tastefully decorated in contemporary earthy wood tones, creating a striking contrast with a palette of calming greens and white finishes, our boutique-style resort offers guests a haven of peace and wellbeing. Each light-filled room is fully equipped to ensure your comfort and appreciation of the small things in life.

Our Consultant Chef, Athinagoras Kostakos is passionate to serve great quality, wholesome food, with fresh, locally selected produce and only the finest ingredients, with a blend of culture and the contemporary, focusing on travelers’ enjoyment in mind (for this I’m not sure as I don’t know the terms of the partnership).
