Elounda Palm Hotel & Suites was born from the passion of two people who wanted to bring together the Cretan hospitality and the joy of meeting new people under one roof. These people are Nikos & Eni, a couple who loves life and wants to share that love with the people around them. The Hotel is a small family-owned boutique property which has been build and designed with a Cretan chic and minimal concept in mind, surrounded by a unique environment with over 150 Palm tree lush gardens, overlooking the bay of the world class Elounda resort and its historic island of Spinalonga, part of the Unesco world heritage list. An ideal retreat for couples and small family escape.


The concept of the hotel is to provide a friendly and professional approach to your holidays while at the same time strive to meet your needs for a relaxed and stress free experience. Our motto is “come as a guest and leave as a friend”.


The property has been recently renovated and is now run by the second generation who still obey the same principals of the founders. New arrivals are the Mellow Cretan mix-logy bar and the Daco restaurant which offer a unique concept of Cretan gastronomy to the table. Finally, in our new Bio Shop, our guests can find specially selected products produced by mother Crete.


We welcome you to the Cretan way of life!
