Discovering the all-new Elounda Hills by Phaea Resorts in Crete

One of the highlights of my recent journeys was the opportunity to explore the latest addition to the Greek hospitality scene. The Phaea Resorts group recently unveiled a new property named Elounda Hills, gracefully nestled on the island of Crete. Crete is a destination where nature’s beauty meets a rich cultural heritage, offering a dramatic landscape punctuated by mountain ranges, pristine beaches, and picturesque villages.

Elounda Hills is poised to become a spectacular new landmark on Crete’s travel map. With its focus on sustainability and local culture, the property aligns perfectly with the ethos of Phaea Resorts, a well-known brand in the Greek tourism industry, which harmonizes luxury and sustainability, creating a unique narrative for every traveler. Here’s a closer look at what the Elounda Hills has in store for its visitors.

A sneak peek at Elounda Hills’ offerings

The Elounda Hills project is designed to be more than just a hotel, it aspires to be an exclusive luxury experience. The property is set within a 66-hectare landscape, approximately 1.5 miles from the town of Elounda. The project comprises high-end villas, luxury suites, a boutique hotel, and a marina, effectively creating a fully-fledged resort within the natural beauty of Crete.

Apart from the breathtaking view of the Aegean sea, visitors can also enjoy absolutely world-class facilities ranging from gourmet dining options, wellness facilities, and a plethora of adventure and relaxation opportunities. The property also includes its very own private beach and a yacht marina. A special mention goes to the project’s emphasis on sustainability, with plans for olive grove restoration and an on-site desalination plant.

A testament to local culture

Beyond the luxurious amenities, Phaea Resorts takes great pride in infusing their properties with the local identity of the destination. The Elounda Hills is no different. The architectural design of the property reflects the rich cultural heritage of Greece, with its styling reminiscent of traditional Cretan homes, while simultaneously embracing a modern and minimalistic aesthetic.

The menu items at the resort’s eateries are largely sourced from local produce, thus offering an authentic Cretan dining experience. Not only does this approach support the regional economy – it also familiarizes guests with gastronomic treasures of the region.

A commitment to sustainability

In sync with the growing trend of sustainable tourism, the Elounda Hills project pledges to adopt eco-friendly practices. The resort plans to implement water conservation initiatives and a ‘zero waste to landfill’ policy. Sustainability is an integral part of the brand’s commitment to preserving the island, making it a truly responsible luxury destination.

The profound appreciation for the local environment is also visible in its plan for an on-site botanical garden and the reintroduction of local flora and fauna. This conscious effort towards ecological preservation exemplifies Phaea Resorts’ dedication to sustainable tourism practices.

Elounda Hills by Phaea Resorts beautifully encapsulates the essence of Crete – its stunning natural beauty, vibrant culture, and friendly, welcoming spirit. A visit to this resort promises a holistic experience that marries luxury, sustainability, and an authentic taste of Crete’s charm. The anticipation for its grand opening is high, and it’s bound to add an exciting new chapter to Crete’s tourism offerings. The privilege of travelling involves witnessing a world beyond our own, and properties like Elounda Hills encourage us to appreciate our surroundings, embrace sustainable practices while exploring new cultures, and return home with unforgettable memories.
