The 5-star Kriti Beach Hotel is nestled on the doorstep of an iconic 14th century Venetian harbour in Rethymno, Crete. Within walking distance to the eastern entrance of the Old Town, which is bursting with history. Kriti Beach Hotel provides a much sought-after escape. ‘Kriti’ is, after all, the Greek word for Crete. With rooms that offer views across crystal-clear waters or Rethymno’s preserved architecture you’ll be easily whisked away by the rhythm of this vibrant town as you take a meander through its streets and alleys, seeking its seafood delicacies and absorbing the Cretan energy.
Look no further than Kriti Beach Hotel’s range of restaurants and bars for a mouth-watering experience of the local fare. Here you can enjoy delicious Mediterranean cuisine, flavours from around the world, exotic cocktails, local wines, light lunches or afternoon tea.
Alike Polymnia, the muse of poetry, song and dance, The Polymnia conference hall is a space designed to bring people together. With a capacity for 100 people in theatre style or for 60 people in a ‘U’ shape style, we can host all manner of events.
As part of our efforts to deliver an exceptional holiday experience we are excited to offer our guests a visit to our beloved sailing boat ‘Armenistis’, moored conveniently across from our hotel, in the marina Rethymno.
Kriti Beach Hotel boasts views facing out across the Sea of Crete and is superbly located minutes away from many local attractions. 85m down the road, is the prestigious Blue Flag beach of Rethymno with crystal clear water and golden sands. Should you take a wander west, you will easily discover historical landmarks such as the historic Venetian harbour and the surrounding Old Town, the Fortezza fortress, the Archeological Museum of Rethymno and The Loggia. In this direction you’ll find many restaurants, bars, cafés and shops line the streets, with the finest in Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine and culture.
"Kriti Beach Hotel is special compared to many places we have tried; good service, personal friendliness, comfort, good restaurant, location, beach etc. When we checked in for a two-week stay, we got a nice room, but we wanted a slightly bigger one. Without problem we were (for an acceptable price) upgraded to a suite. The stay was a little adventure with the wonderful staff. Thanks for it including many positive handovers!"
"Me and my husband keep coming back. We do enjoy our stay when we travel as a couple or with family. We both tried double room and family room witch is both really nice. The room and service: its clean, the room service is really nice and we always come back to a fresh room."
"Kriti is the best hotel in Rethymno, I've stayed there since 2012 - always so happy with the stay. Kindest and best service ever from everybody in the hotel - I love you all <3 I'll come back twice also next year!!!!"
