This new resort in Crete is worth putting on your radar.
The Royal Senses Resort Crete will be the first Hilton hotel in Crete, as a member of its Curio Collection, when it opens in April 2021.
The 179-room hotel is located in Rethymno, close to two of the most popular destinations of the island - Knossos Palace and Melidoni Cave.
By celebrating the timelessness of Cretan hospitality in a contemporary way, guests will have the chance to experience this stunning island from a new, fresh perspective.
The hotel will feature luxurious facilities including a spa, indoor and outdoor pool, water park, tennis courts as well as a private beach and marina.
"Crete is one of Greece's most popular islands, thanks to its warm climate, rich history and picturesque villages. Royal Senses Resort Crete will make a stunning addition to our rapidly growing Curio Collection of unique hotels, which includes upcoming properties in destinations including Lisbon, London and Reykjavik," said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Hilton.
The Royal Senses Resort Crete is being built and operated under an agreement with local operator Troulis Royal Collection.
Eleni Troulis, President of Troulis Royal Collection said: "We are delighted that the Royal Senses Resort Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton will be the first in Greece to join this stunning selection of handpicked properties. Having successfully operated its sister property, the Royal Blue Resort since 2009, we are now excited to be expanding our portfolio and partnering with Hilton."
"It's the perfect collaboration for us, as it combines the resort's contemporary appreciation of Crete's multifaceted culture and our family's hospitality values with Hilton's strong international customer appeal," she added.
The Royal Senses Resort Crete will be located at Panormo Rethymnon, 740 57, Crete, Greece.
