Overlooking the sparkling azure waters of Crete’s Mirabello Bay, Porto Elounda is a holiday destination for the discerning, boasting a Six Senses Spa named the world’s best spa by the Sunday Times and a private beach among its facilities. For golfers, Port Elounda offers a private nine-hole par 3 golf course that is only available to the resort’s guests. Creatively designed with multiple tees, guests may choose to play it as an 18-hole course, as each hole has two playing options of varying difficulty. Additionally, the complex has practice nets and a nine-hole putting green. Private tuition for golfers of all levels is also available from the resort’s PGA pro, who runs the golf academy and is fluent in English. The resort’s recreational facilities also include two tennis courts and a gym, as well as a fantastic water sports centre offering jet-skis, windsurfing, water-skiing, and sailing activities. The private-pool villas have either two or three bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom and featuring a spacious living room, indoor dining and an outdoor dining area in its own garden with a sea-water swimming pool. The villas provide the sense of a private holiday home, with all the benefits of a luxury resort.
