GK Beach Hotel - Crete

With a sublime location, spectacular views and exceptional service – combined with the culinary expertise of our in-house chef, it offers the very best of Cretan hospitality. All that lies between the white-washed buildings of this charming hotel and a wide sandy beach stretching as far as the eye can see, are lush tropical gardens and a generous expanse of lawn. Add to this an inviting swimming pool, our own taverna and bar and you have one of the most appealing beachfront properties in the Simpson portfolio. Our superb 2-bedroom family penthouse and 23 light and airy suites offer comfortable furnishings, delightful sea views and a relaxed pace of life that induces a wonderful sense of well-being. Breakfast is served every morning on the terrace by the swimming pool overlooking the beach where soft, deep sand is shaded by tamarind trees and slopes gently into shallow water. Throughout the day, our taverna serves a delicious array of tempting dishes using fresh local produce and organic ingredients, some of which are harvested from the hotel’s own land. Relaxation comes in many forms and for those who enjoy being pampered, GK Beach offers a holistic range of calming treatments whilst Simpson Travel’s knowledgeable concierge service can arrange anything from a special celebration to a personalised itinerary for a full day of island exploration. Our dedicated minibus at the hotel is available for day trips and excursions and we strongly recommend a trip to the historic Venetian harbour of Chania, just a 25-minute drive away. Fringed by the magnificent White Mountains of western Crete, GK Beach Hotel is an ideal spot in spring and autumn for walkers and explorers to enjoy the delightful traditional inland villages, hardly changed for generations, whilst the local shops and restaurants in nearby Kalyves are a 20-minute stroll away. In summer the gentle breeze and outstanding beach make it a great choice for couples and families with young children looking for a peaceful escape in a perfect setting and in the school holidays, our Beach Life programme runs between 14 July and 23 August, offering a complementary programme of supervised activities for children aged 5 to 11.Holiday Name : GK Beach Hotel
