Drink & Dine

A divine sanctuary of taste, where greek, italian and eastern mediterranean fragments of culinary art, fuse together in a blend of ambrosial viands. Greek and Cretan delicacies constitute an amalgam of scrumptious buffet kaleidoscope in “Elia Restaurant”, while “Ta Nisia” invites you to tuck into a dappled palette of italian delicacies. As the pendulum has recently swung in the organic direction, our chefs in “Galazio Restaurant” took a more hands-on role, in time to pack a wallop in the triumvirate of “local, sustainable and organic” food and hit the spot for “BIO Kouzina Silver” certifier. Galazio beckons you into an eco-in-love private dinner for two overlooking the sea for an unforgettable date night tryst and hosts a wine discovery event and a 5 course menu, specially designed for cookery stalwarts. The “Thalassa” restaurant proposes a fusion cuisine, combining elements of cretan diet and the middle-eastern sub-region, while the 3 bars showcase a wide range of wines, spirits and cocktails. Unwind on a hammock by the sea, at “Thalassa Bar”, head to “Tholos Pool Bar” for a juicy umbrella drink and savor a romantic interlude, at the “Mythos Piano Bar” alongside the pitter patter of piano keys. Last but not least, the “Kafeneion” corner, a throwback to tradition and the true spirit of cretan life and hospitality.

Tranquility and Architecture

Inspired by the very soul of the island, Minoa generates a narrative spatial sequence that unifies the majestic scenery, the cultural heritage and the organic structure of its foundations. The hotel draws upon the cultural relevance of the cretan architectural heritage(the omnipresence of local stone, wood and tile is apparent) and brings local inspiration to life, courtesy of some remarkable artworks displayed by Greek visual artists. The whole blends in perfect fashion with the meticulously designed interior spaces, making it the perfect launching point for intrepid travelers seeking to experience local charm at its best.

Activities

Welcome to the sunshine playground of the eastern mediterranean. A kaleidoscope of light and color, Minoa Palace Resort grasps the vibe of the moment and stretches it in a dreamscape of activities. Sweat it to shred it in the gym for a good old school testosterone booster or delve into the very depths of your inner self, by holistically exploring a progressive return to the roots of empathy via yoga and pilates. For those indulging in open air activities, there is always the choice of a football pitch or a tennis court and the aqua fitness lessons could add a spice of upbeat, toning and rejuvenation in your muscles and joints. If you wish to step out of the Platanias’ raucous oyster, just remember that you can celebrate the surrounding wildlife in all facets. The area is a mecca for every stripe of cyclist and you can always pack lots on your hiking experience, walking off the beaten track and delving into the enchanting primal scenery. And while on a hiatus from outdoor activities, recce the pool environment, for this is the ultimate sanctuary, where the zen side of your body and mind is in full swing.

Local Experiences

It is very important to leave a place with a better understanding of its culture, traditions and people. In Minoa Palace Resort you will have the chance to experience all three. Organic menus with products from their own organic garden, cooking lessons and a wine discovery of local labels will cover your gastronomical journey at Crete.

Chamber Music Festival

Hailed as “sharing the inner vision of art in one of the most extraordinary destinations, Crete”(-George Mathioulakis), the Chamber Music Festival bids farewell to the cosmopolitan summer and welcomes autumn in the most artistic way: high quality performances highlight composers from the Baroque era to the 21st century, offering the audience 2 weeks of intense musical excitement. The first concert took place in September 2012 and since then, thousands of music devotees from Greece and abroad have attended its numerous events, whose quality standards and performances of the finest caliber have placed the venue among the top-notch festivals in Greece. Crete as a crossroad of civilizations, a destination of unique, natural beauty and multicolored history and tradition, holds the initial flame that both inspires and guides through all arduous cultural challenges to be met and showcased in the artistic hive of the Minoa Palace Resort.
